  • Masala MakerMasala Maker Posts: 476B-Class
    Oo nga boss Yatez e swerte lang. Sana hindi mag plateau kaagad. Backing off training this weekend to rest my weary joints and bones so I can come back stronger.

    Tumataba parin ako at 205lbs, 36 waist line na bought new jeans today. Hahaha. Crazy.
    Nawala yung eating right "groove" ko. Been snacking a lot. Need to ease back into good habits.

    NEW PR:
    315 x 5 x 3

    Still eating at around 1000 - 1500+ surplus. Mostly food that are easily accessible.
    I feel better, going to eat right again starting today. Around 205-208lbs zone. Really feel better around the 200 zone. I feel a lot stronger when I look bigger if that makes any sense hahahaha..

    Trained at the nearest gym yesterday. The floors were rubber zig-zags and it was nice to be able to drop the barbell. It was hard to gauge if my usual strength was still there due to the gym having KG's instead of LBS on the plates. Having to bust out the calculator each set but still the weight's not feeling the same. Felt heavier. Anyone else have this experience?

    I can't ignore my right rear delts anymore. It's tight as hell all day everyday. Every rep pressing heavy load overhead hurts it like hell. I've been stretching a lot recently and I hope it helps.

    I've only gotten heavily into rows last month and I'm starting to get obsessed with back development. Sobrang gusto ko gumanda likod ko hahaha. Want to try bodybuilding but torn between strength and aesthetics at the moment. Haven't tried bodybuilding training yet though.

    sa Eclipse ka bro. Mabini branch yan? ang lakas :sport:
  • Masala MakerMasala Maker Posts: 476B-Class
    Yes bro! Hinihintay ko pa yung shirt ko! haha! Kaya ako na enganyo sa Eclipse dahil sa challenges e. Something to work towards to aside from my own being. Gusto ko ma hit yung 225 on the bench press by the end of the year.

    Salamat ng marami ndgllb. Sobrang nakaka motivate lalo sa journey to self-improvement when people look at what I've done so far in regards to my physical self at nakaka tulong rin ako sa pag motivate sakanila to push forward with it. The feeling na the work you put into it has made kahit even the smallest ripples and vibrations in people's lives. Nakakatuwa e.

    At the moment may dalawa akong friends from work na sumasabay na sa routine/workouts ko for weight loss and nakakatuwa na nag proprogress sila in strength and fat loss.

    Sobrang bilis ng fluctuation ko in weight nakaka loko.
    Started eating decent again today.

    10 hardboiled eggs
    2 bananas
    2 cups of black coffee

    3 servings of Oatmeal, drops of vanilla extract, sliced apples.
    a bowl of peanuts.

    5 cups of black coffee

    500g chicken breast

    Couldn't grip the bar properly. Teamsports has no chalk and Olympic bars.
    Didn't matter. It was a hard set and worked me good.

    Kroc Rows
    90lbs x 3 x 15 to failure.
    (90's na yung heaviest dumbbell na nakikita ko lagi)

    Balik na ulit weight ko to acceptable and my strength = retained.

    Walang hiyang selfies! haha! pagbigyan niyo na.
    Yung physique ko parang parehas lang halos ng August 5 picture.
    Pero ang laki ng pinagkaiba ng August 5 strength at present strength. Such cray cray.
    WANT to train even harder this month.

    Practicing snatching and clean and jerks outdoors with training buddies.

    Katakot yung likod mo during the initial pull brah. Rounded back. Disaster waiting to happen. You need to sit down lower and tighten up your lumbar and thoracic spine. Take care of your back. Yan ang pundasyon natin palagi sa lifting. Don't put it on compromised position.
  • DSmallDivideDSmallDivide Posts: 4,565B-Class
    While i'm not really used to do oly lifts on a normal basis, tama si riddler back shouldn't be rounded also same as doing deadlifts you need to kep the bar as close as possible to your body and don't swing the weight forward. just saying.
  • Masala MakerMasala Maker Posts: 476B-Class
    Mismo guys! Still trying to drill proper setting up on snatches. I know my back is rounded in the vid. I still have a long ways to go to snatching right! thanks for the concern. Much love <3

    Front Squats

    Conventional Deadlift
    rest-pause for a few seconds after 3rd rep. Might lower the poundage next time.

    Back Squats

    275 x 1 NEW PR.

    Lat Pulldowns

    100lbs slow and controlled reps 3x12

    Kroc Rows
    100lbs 3x12

    Realized my left dominant hand is weaker in grip and strength when it comes to rowing. Possibly because of mixed grip in deadlifts. Pretty irritating. I can only get 5 clean reps with my left hand, and 8 straight with my right before form breaks down.

    Hmmmm.... so what i've been doing is what he calls "rounded-back" good morning well i just call it good mornings. I might consider adding the arched-back GMs and see if it will yield results for me. :)
  • Masala MakerMasala Maker Posts: 476B-Class
    Ang galing niyang guy na yan on YT for me. Subscribed to him. Meron siyang vid named "deadlift and motion", baka matripan niyo sir DS!
