Entry #914

Down to 220 lbs. Traditionally I'm used to two things: exploding up in strength and weight or sharp declines in both. Either or. This is very different. I'm slowly, slowly gaining strength and very gradually losing weight. While it can be disheartening as a gut reaction to realizing I haven't put 15 lbs on my bench press since last time, I'm doing very well for myself considering how much less I'm eating (which is still quite a bit).

Got dextrose in the mail today. 16 lbs for $32 off Amazon. This should last me another year. Not on creatine yet, though it's sitting on my fridge waiting for use.

Overhead press:
125 x 5
145 x 5
165 x 8
> 5 lb increase with 5 lb weight loss. I'll take it.

Arnold press:
75s x 8, 8
70s x 6, 6
60s x 7

Band pull-aparts:

NG pull-ups:
10, 10, 6, 5, 8

Entry #913

End deload.

New lift numbers with 90% calculations that I'll be using:

OHP: 215 - 193.5
Deadlift: 485 - 436.5
Bench press: 340 - 306
Squat: 420 - 378


I'm looking super trim. Hopefully I haven't regressed any during the deload. Diet has been going great.
