Dude, I'm super jealous. That's the one I wanted, but was too cheap to pony up the extra $100...especially because I didn't have a bench, so I would have had to buy that too haha.

Yeah overall I had to pay a little more than the one you recommended. I got it last week and they had a Black Friday deal on the bench and rack so I took advantage of it.

It was the right call. I should have bought that one.

Oh well...

Legs today. Which means squats, squats, and more squats. Maybe I'll throw in some abs too.

Thanks. Everything has to go right for it to happen though. No injuries, no lapses in diet...

Some of us are already 0-2 in that department ;-) .

It happens.  The key is to remember it's not a catastrophic failure when it happens.  As somebody who goes through this cycle almost every year, for the past decade, I feel I've almost mastered this.

Ha. I'm pretty good at following a diet, and have been fortunate with lifting injuries. I've tweaked this nerve in my neck a few times, but it's never been bad enough to stop me so far...so we'll see.

I have <6 lbs to go now and exactly 4 weeks...so I'm on track for goal #1.

Today:

Squat 200x5x3

OH Press 80x5x3

Back Extensions BWx10

That's absolutely the right was to do it...and is my plan the beginning of the year. I just didn't want to start bulking with a bunch of excess fat.

I've never done the paleo/IF thing, but I've done Keto a couple times...it's delicious lol

You'll be there in no time...I bet you're close now in strength. If you can squat 200x5, you can probably come close to 240 for a 1 rep max.

Yeah, at 142.5 I was starting very lean.  Good luck. It was tough give up the six pack as I started to gain again (vanity, I know).

I feel my best on paleo/IF, but after about 6 weeks I start to drag and have to cycle off for a while.  Moderation is key.

I have never attempted a 1RM, might have to give it a try.  The above goals I am shooting for 5RM.  Hoping for mid-January, then cut to look good when I go to Punta Cana with the girlfriend in mid-Feb.

Not my first rodeo haha. I plan on gaining slowly to limit the amount of fat. Gonna bulk up for about 4 months, and then cut down for the wedding. Fun times ahead...
