Weight and Maxes
Weight is sitting around 182-184. Holding strong. I have cleaned up my diet a bit and have been able to maintain the gains. I just have to make sure I am getting enough carbs from clean sources.
I tested a couple maxes a bout a month ago.
It's interesting how close in weight my 1rm and 3rm are in things. I guess it goes to show I am pretty much slow twitch. Who would have thought a former ultra endurance athlete would be slow twitch right? I think that is also why I saw such gains with 5/3/1. The rep records really motivated me and I think the high rep sets have a greater effect on my body than the lower rep sets do re: hypertrohy.
Here is a cool chart I picked up at EliteFTS. Don't get stuck on rep ranges. Think about the Time under tension in a set and what metabolic pathway you are trying to hit. There's morr to lifting than 3-5 sets of 8-12 reps kids.
