So how was you New Years James, did you get up to much?
Just so you know there's now a Powerlifting specific section of the forum. Would be great to see you in there, cheers MF.

Dope, I saw that! I was swamped with work, kept up with my workouts but was sleep deprived and lacked some nutrition.

I'm on week three and it already feels like my lifts have become stronger. I'm finding my Military Press weights are just increasing, I feel more comfortable with heavier weight on the bench, my deadlift comes up easier and faster and my squat seems more explosive.

I'm up for 135x50 Olympic squats today without a break. So We'll see how that one goes haha

Crazy! Were you able to power through the whole set or did you have to pause a bit between reps to get that done? In either case, nice work!

I think I powered through 25 without stopping, but after that I would pause for 5 seconds in between doing as many as I could. The objective was to never rack the bar, so when I was paused the bar just sat on my back, which made me want to finish faster haha

Crazy squatting bro, when did the reps start to get tough?

Yesterday was my first day on The Cube, good session too.

Probably around 20 or so. That's when I started thinking I was going to puke haha.

I think were on the same timing, I did deadlifts for reps yesterday which I think is the beginning of the routine.
