Hey guys, I got a question.
I'm currently doing peaks for about 2 months now (one week off because I was on holiday and there was no gym only a teenie tiny one with 5 kg dumbells and a fucking step machine 😂) .
I'm stuck at 90kg deadlift (that I don't even make every time). Stuck at 37kg overhead press (I know it's so low, got terrible shoulders. I realllllly want to end this period with a 100 kg deadlift and a 100 kg squat (also currently 90kg). And really a minimum 40 kg OHP but 45 would be better. Bench is 50kg, that's what I wanted to accomplish this period but more is always better.

Question is; should I go on with peaks till I get there? I realllly want it so bad, but I don't know if it's smart to go on since it's really slowing down, or just to start again with hypertrophy.

I'd just stick to getting stronger at 70-80% and more hypertrophy if you've been peaking for that long.

Yeah.. I think I'm going to start over again next week.
I hope I'll meet those goals before this year ends, that would be awesome.

There is absolutely no need for you to peak right now. Just keep doing hypertrophy, and make sure you're eating enough. Newbies don't need to be maxing out.

Eehm yeah I don't consider myself as a newbie anymore.
I already did everything to get ready for peaks. Now I'm finally here (and have been doing fine for more than a month) and I don't want to stop yet, but I'm not sure if it's smart.

I don't know if it changes things but I'm a girl, so the weight is lower than a guy of course. So I don't know if that's why you thought I was a newbie.

Ooohhhh you're a chick? I didn't know that.

Its still my opinion that you should keep doing hypertrophy work, however knowing you aren't a very weak man makes things better. Those are actually okay numbers for a girl.

Any particular reason you're wanting to peak?

Yups, I am.
I know I have to do that again after this fase, but I'm not sure when to start. Well I know it's actually better to give my body some rest from the heavy weights, but I just want to keep going on so badly.

Because I looove those high numbers and heavy weights. Makes me feel strong when getting a new PR. It gives such an awesome feeling and that's not something I get from low weight and lots of reps.

It's just, every fase is about 6 weeks (altho I did the previous 3 shorter because I didn't want to wait longer to peak), so if I go to hypertrophy now, I have to wait again for like 4 months to peak again D:

Sounds like you're just being impatient.

In my younger lifting years I had a similar mentality, always wanted new 1RMs, didn't care about low weight and rep work, etc. So, because of that, I spent a couple years pretty much making no progress and constantly frying my nervous system. When I got over that and started focusing on BUILDING instead of TESTING, and learning appreciate rep PRs, I also started...you know...actually making progress.

But what do I know, I'm still kind of a beginner anyway.

Well I kinda waited a year before I really seriously started maxing, so I don't really think that's impatient haha. (I did sometimes tried a 1RM in between but never really serious like now).
It's not that I don't want to go to hypertrophy at all, I just love heavy ass weights. I'm just thinking if I can find a way to stay in this period a little bit longer, maybe just a few more weeks. I just would love to hit 100 kg, I mean that's three fucking didgets. just sounds so much better than 90. I did once do a 100 kg deadlift, but then I started at 15 cm above the ground, so that doesn't really count

At this point, if you're actually missing 90kg sometimes, I think you'll get to 100kg faster by just going back to hypertrophy for a month.

And a year isn't a long time for training. I'm over 5 years in, and I still suck.

Yeah maybe. But after hypertrophy I got two more fases. Or do you think I could skip those?
In the picture is what I use now, well I edited some things but it looks a bit like that.

No, I know a year isn't long, but more like waited a year for peaks, I think that's quite long. I started weighttraining I think two and a half years ago, then stopped because I didn't saw progress and didn't know what the fuck to do, started again 1,5 years back. My bench 1rm was fucking 22,5 kg when I started haha, so weird.

You'd be better off going for more mass right away. You're leaner than the average person I'd say and you aren't skinny-fat, but you are scrawny. Build up muscle first and you'll lean out over time.

I don't think you should focus on that little bit of fat you have right now. You should eat enough since you're just starting and weightlifting burns already a lot of calories.
Maybe after a while you can think of getting your bf lower.
Ab workouts are no problem at all of course.

That's okay! You can't know everything!
It really depends on how active you are and all, here's a site you can fill in your age/weight etc.: authoritynutrition.com/how-many-calories-per-day/
It's different from day to day, if you're very active you should eat more then a day you almost nothing. I think you should look at "maintain weight" and then add about 300 kcal on days you train (since you want to gain muscle).

Protein I think you should be good around 80 grams a day. But I'm not fully sure of that.

I havent done any sort of real group PT since actual training, and even then I've always been in better shape than 95% of the people around me.

But good shape or not, low rest hill sprints will whip anyone.

Works very quickly and effectively.
But at how risky it can be for some people you're better off with a heavy calorie cut.
Also trying to pair no carbs with heavy lifting makes you want to kill yourself, plus you wont be gaining much muscle despite the massive protein. Muscles need carbs too.
But if you got to lose hella weight fast, that's the way. (or heavy cal cuts)

So in the wake of my first federation comp, I'm pleased where my strength is. Hit 125kg, coming second to the South West region record holder at 132.5. Did my peak the same way that I used to up my strength while I was in the army, since we had no gym access. On top of my regular training, I did 200 incline and 200 decline push ups, which I find works well in building strength. When I was on barracks it worked and as competition prep it worked. If I get 130 up in March I'll be pleased, after that my focus is the record

I'm not sure if this is just the PCT fucking with my head but holy shit I need to share this

It was just an average leg day today (though tbh I was crushing it but thats besides the point)
About to finish up my workout with some straight leg deadlifts for them glutes
and then I saw her
instantly my knees were borderline quaking, shaking like I was being fucked Haitian style by the tectonic plates.
I kinda laughed to myself about it "haha, cuz of her? I just crushed my ass to grass squats and have banged solid 10 insta hoes, its not cuz of her." I kinda nervously thought.

Now neither of us started doing deads, I just was doing straight legged ones, she was rowing in the squat rack next to me.
I looked at her, she looked at me. My knees got even shaker, we both kinda shly looked away.
She was prob 4'11, half hispanic, easily a 10, thicc as oh my lord.
She was doing her rows of 90lbs, I was doing my warmup of 135 not too much going on.
And then she grabbed a pl8.
And then another.
And started deadlifting
Not just any deadlifting
Sumo deadlifting
at this point I was doing 225 straight leg deads for 12-15, but something inside me said "Nah, not today"
I rerack it, slap on 315, its deadlift time.
Haven't done deads in what seems like forever and 315 I maxed at like 5 reps.
She finishes her set, and I start mine, I can tell shes looking at me through the mirror.
It flys up easy, 1,2,3,4,....10,11,12 Smashed my pr with an extra 7 reps.
And then she grabs another pl8, and ANOTHER pl8.
225. She cant weigh more then 90lbs, this is fucking insane.
Not 1 rep, not 2, she gets 8. And I'm sitting here fucking dumbfounded that a girl can deadlift 225, a 4'11 90lb cute af girl is DESTROYING these deads.
I pick up my barbell, throw on 405. This is happening. No belt.
The last time I had hit 405 was 4 months ago, with a belt, on a new pre-workout, the rep was very shaky and poor form, and I was on roids.
Now I'm on pct, and at the end of my already highly intense workout.
I get ready, sumo style, mixed grip, I look in the mirror straight up lock eyes with her, the base drops in my headphones.
Flys up, perfect form EASY
Set it down, Again. Easy reps
Again. 3, I set it down.
Shes still looking.
I smile, she smiles. I look away, she looks away.
I could have easily done 4,5,6,100 million had she just smiled at me before that lift. The fucking cutest smile, the kinda smile that makes you rock hard but also makes you wana buy a dozen roses.
She reracks her shit, I do mine. I can barely breath let alone stand.
Gana catch my breath and ask for her number but she cleaned up too fast and walked away.

Start thinking "what if she has a boyfriend, what if I was being loud af and thats why she smiled, what if blah blah" shit I havent thought since I was like 15 and barely knew what a vagina felt like.

Next time I'm asking for that number Idgaf if my test is low af or if I was misreading her. But god damn I've never had a girl be that fucking hot before. My gym is full of thicc cutie mcbooties, some of them match me on tinder too. But not a single one like that girl. No girl I've ever been with made me feel like that the first time I looked at her. I always thought that kinda shit was for 4chan aspies and little kids.

tl;dr hit 405 for 3 reps today on sumo deads.

Mfw I couldn't walk because of my glute pump and couldn't even ask for a girls number.

Now I THINK you're trying to speak english. Not really sure.
But stretch marks are permanent unless you get tattoos/makeup/surgery.

I've personally never had them because my skin just don't roll that way. But its not a bad thing, 2 of my asian friends have huge stretch marks on the arms and shoulders so we call them tigers, embrace you're tiger blood lines.

Its like a beard. Fine if you have one, fine if you don't. It's what you make out of it that determines if it looks good on you.

seriously though anyone else do this? I know I'm prob not gana need the spot but if I am I really don't want to have to go through baby's first spot lesson for kids 120lbs and under. When you spot someone or you're getting a spot what do you like?

Dont touch my bar bro unless its needed
When I fail I will do as many negatives as you believe in me for, just make sure you can get the weight up for me if I need

I think spotting or being asked to be spotted by randos is one of the most telling facts that you've "made it". Around the same time that big dudes were asking me for spots is the same time I started getting random complements in public.

Once had like a 34 year old milf walk halfway across the gym for me to spot here, the gainz god smiled on me that day.

Am I reading to much into this? I feel like I'm not wrong though

I do this all the time. There's a lot of times where there's nobody that I know lifts in the gym other than me so I don't go over 3RM. Cause I'm not letting them spot me. I once got 2 guys to spot me cause they couldn't do it individually

I always ask the powerlifters at my gym for a spot, if available. They usually understand not to touch the bar unless it's moving backwards and not a moment before. I only really need a spot for bench once in a blue moon since all of my presses are standing and I can bail a squat if needed.

Leg day has been killing me on 5/3/1 big but boring. I started at 185 for the 5x10 squats, and today I only gave myself 45 second rest times between sets. Even an hour later I'm still nauseous.

For the second month I'll move the weight up to 205 and then slowly decrease the rest periods again.

On a personal note that security company I just began the process of working for is very likely going to hire me on as a part of the "night life team", basically I'll get to be a bouncer at ballpark village in St. Louis.

I've come back for you
But yeah man it's all good, my gains were lost for a little while but I started to pick them back up. Turns out I've got spina bifida which is probably the culprit for a hip injury I sustained during a ruck. It's been about 2-3 months and I've finally started running again.
Not the best picture but I haven't taken one in a while.

I lost about 40 pounds at tech school, and I'm about 205 now. Still down 15 pounds from where I was but I'm leaner and my strength is mostly back.

You're army right? Where are you stationed?

I'm very active in general. But I also do cardio at least twice a week, either through sprints or short hard runs 1-2 miles that last 10-15 minutes at a max .

I don't keep track of what food I eat beyond average calorie and protein intake. I mostly make sure that in eating good, high quality food.

Do you do 5x10 deadlifts as well? The lower body days utterly destroyed me. I totally underestimated how much squatting heavy once a week can drain you when programmed properly.

Yes, on the squat strength days. Those don't hurt me nearly as much because deadlifts have never drained me as badly as squats, and also my grip is my weak point so that's mainly what it trains. I'm only doing 215 on the deadlifts though.

I agree, high rep deadlifts don't drain quote like squats. I'm doing 20 rep squats and a single set of 15 for stiff leg deadlifts and the squats are definitely more intense. It probably has to do with the longer ROM and the fact that the weight is supported by your body.

Here's the vid. 405x8.

As you guys can see, it was flying up. I know I could've gotten at least 10 if my thumb didn't get fuqq't.

Hit 405x8 for a big PR on a whim tonight on Deadlifts. I for sure had 10 in me, but then my thumb ripped out from under its nail because hook grip, and that made me hit an anger PR.

I might actually try another set with mixed grip and seek revenge.

A little bit. Not morbidly so, it just bleeds and hurts like hell.
