Makes perfect sense, thanks. I'll try backing down 20lb and take it up from there, I can't imagine I'll have a problem after that. As for the mechanics... weight is no excuse for goodmornings

Gotcha. The mechanics thing is just info. Something to be aware of. I wasn't suggesting one way or the other on what you are experiencing. If the weight is floating that is a def. prob.

Today is going to be insane, unfortunately to the point where I don't have time to lift (or breathe). I'll do an A workout Wed, B Fri, then start my ABA week again next week.

Given that I haven't lifted since Friday and won't be in the gym again until Wednesday, how should I be eating right now? Just to maintain at the same 40/20/40 ratio?

I didn't up the weight on all of my lifts today, given how long it's been since I've done an A workout (due to missing monday). I dropped 20lbs and reset the squats, they were harder than I would have thought they'd be but at least my form was better. Getting back up 5lb at a time

Squats: 205 (up 5)
Bench: 160 (up 5)
Deads: 285 (up 10)
Dips: 2x8 @ 55 (up 2.5)
Abs: 2x 12 extended leg raises w/ 10lb on feet (up 2.5)
DB curl: 2x10 @ 35 (keep)
Tri extensions: 2x10 sitting upright holding a DB behind my head and extending upwards w/ 50lb (up 5)

Weight today was 178.4

Good day.

Squats: 210
Overhead: 110
Rows: 165
Pullups: 42.5 (keep)
Abs: 12.5 (keep)
DB curl: 2x10 @ 35 (keep)
Tri ext: 2x10 @ 55 (up 5)

My scale is notoriously random, today I double checked my weight and came in at 178.2, which is probably more accurate.

Squats were real hard today, bad form. Wish I knew why, I'm not even at the weight I was pre-reset. Keeping the weight for all of the lifts today... yikes.

Squat: 220 keep
Overhead: 115 keep
Rows: 170 keep
pulls: 42.5 keep
DB curl: 2x11 @ 35 keep
Tri ext: 2x10 @ 65 up 5
Abs: done

I don't know about squats.. form was falling, put on a belt for the last two sets which helped a bit but it still shouldn't be that bad. I'm trying to decide whether to bring the weight up (this was day 2 of this weight, and I'm still 5lb under my weight before the reset) or keep it. Bench was feeling good but I completely lost it for the last rep, not sure why. Oh well, next time

Squat:220 up...maybe?
Bench: 170 keep
DL: 300 oorah. up 5
Dips: 55 keep and go lower
DB curl: 2x12 @ 35 raise weight and drop reps
Tri ext: 2x10 @ 65 up 5
Abs: done

Was relieved to see the squats progress a bit today, I'll move up again next time. Form wasn't perfect (one or two reps were almost "bad"), but it was better. Rows are way too hard, I'm probably going to drop them down 10 pounds and start again. I can "do" it with this weight, but not going all the way down. Good day otherwise

Squat: 220 up 5
Overhead: 115 drop to 105
Rows: 170 up 5
Pulls: 42.5 keep
Abs: done
DB curl: 2x8 @ 45 keep
Tri ext: 2x10 @ 70 increase to 11 reps

For a few reasons, as much as I'm loving getting big, it's time to start transitioning over to a cut. I've gained a lot of weight which is great, but my run times are suffering, and I am too fat for my liking. I'll start transitioning either after this week or next
