Thanks for the tip.
Who are you talking to?
5'9 and 168lbs (76kg)
Not done a huge amount recently as only getting to the gym at most twice a week whilst running 30 miles a week and climbing around once a week as well
I'm leaving this thread
This (possibly annoying to some) video is my light hearted way of recording my way back to body health.
After some back wear and tear that could have been worse if i'd pushed through injury whilst Thai boxing, I chose to step back, drop the ego and re-start strength training from scratch.
I'm 114.8 kg. Operating on a ketogenic diet and literally re-structuring my whole body.
If I recover enough I may box or kickbox again but if not, then hopefully I'll get strong enough to at least do a PL or SM comp one day soon.
I was around 132kg approx 3 years ago. It is hard to start again from ground zero.

BW 272lb 6FT AGE 30
best for rep bench press was 315 for 12 and 225 for 31.
My deadlift has always been a challenge. i use a hook grip but i feel stronger with a mixed. Squat was with a belt and st knee sleeves. i have yet to use a belt deadlifting, i havent figured that out yet. im a retired professional football player(cfl) so ive had the privilege to have a variety of knowledgeable trainers since my early 20s.
Nice, what team did you play for?
i played for the als. mostly practice roster and dressed a few games. just another canadian d linemen haha.
what's your general routine like? sets/reps? i feel my joints don't get along that well with low reps for some time now. what's your experience?

Bench 250lbs (est - bicep tendon injury of late...have not benched much)
OHP - 165lbs
Front Squat 290lbs
Looking to enter my first PL meet in 2019.
awesome, man. what's your training history?
Well I know it goes over like a turd in a punchbowl here but I've been in a CF gym for about 7 years. Have learned a lot along the way and our gym does follow very specific programming and I've personally become much smarter about my training. I've also done a couple cycles through Wendler which have been extremely helpful in getting stronger. My bench needs a lot of work right now. Elbow tendonitis and some bicep tendon issues have really caused me to avoid it and with training all the other stuff I don't prioritize it.
I never trained squats or deadlifts or any olympic lifts prior to age 43-44.
And correction, I was 178lbs this morning LOL - looking to lean out a bit to 175.
