At least you know what I mean. I am sure I will eventually reach an impasse, but my goal isn’t to have arms that balance my chest and or quads that match up to my hamstring. Right now I want to be big... thats it.
I used to measure my progress based on my weight gain or aesthetics, but that was a while ago. Measuring that is a very slow process. So I prefer to gauge progress based on strength alone and the stronger I get, the more I eat and the bigger I get. For the past 2 years I have only been focusing on my big lifts, and the mass just follows. So I am not exactly hovering between both worlds. What I feel is I am trying to find equilibrium of being strong and looking strong.
What I look forward to when I train is just hitting the big lifts. Obviously I am never going to stop trying to load up the bars. The powerlifting side does have a strong appeal, I love going heavy, but what I don’t like is often you sacrifice all aesthetics to eat big and lift big. I love the hardcore style of power lifting, over the lame symmetry side of bbing.I am not found of the bbing style training. I don’t like going to the gym doing flyes or light weight quad extensions. I am not drawn to the conventional training style you see at the gyms or read in the magazines.
I want to be as strong as I can get while maintaining a balance.Right now I still want to pack on the mass, and keep increasing the weights. I am sure I still have a couple years to go before I have to make up my mind.
I do want to compete in PL for sure.
