If you decide to compete again, would you eventually try to cut or bulk without supplements or powders. Just using real food.

Seems like so many competitors rely on supplements to get the lean muscular look. Wonder how many competitors can get that competition look without supplements or powders.

i feel like it would be hard to get 140-170 grams of protein with just food without adding extra carbs. but whatever im fat anyway so maybe thats a moot point lol. i wont get on a scale right now but i would guess im 135. i cut water for my meet to get to 123 weight class but it was super close. cleaning things up in january...its a hard balance with powerlifitng. coach encourages me to eat...and i love the strength but i need new pants lol.

Do you think bulking and cutting over and over is messing with your body that it wants to retain water. I see so many people work so hard for weeks prepping for a comp and a week after the comp, they gain back a lot of water weight.

I wonder if all that protein is necessary. Greens have plenty of protein.

Good strength but be careful on your pulling. If you check the video above you can see that as soon as you start the pull your shoulders are forwards over the bar; this will cause the back to round as soon as the bar comes off the floor and your lower back takes over with taking the brunt of the weight.

Just something to be aware of as I've seen lifters blow the their backs out because of this. Get your shoulders pulled back (which will also help to stop your lower back from rounding), take the slack out of the bar just before you pull, focus on leaning back towards your heels and drive down through your legs; the deadlift can essentially be viewed as just as much of a press as a pulling movement from the role that the legs play with maximal lifts.

Just looking out for you, no doubt your coach is picking up on these kind of things anyway :)

Keep up the good work with the training MF.
