Yeah I definitely hit some more reps than I should have for a max day. I really wanted to put my legs through hell.
I'm mainly a powerlifter, I have a open meet in May that I'm training for. I'm starting to cut for the lower weight class slowly so I don't lose a lot of strength toward the comp. sitting at 175 now, need to get down to 163, which I know can happen.
I actually have the 5/3/1 book, and I've been using the routine for a while now. Thanks for the help MF

Good luck man, I'm here if you need anything. What weight class are you going to drop down to? What federation is the meet, IPF?

I'm trying to hit the 163 lb class since I'm 175 now with bit of fat to get rid of. Its IPF, Ontario's powerlifting union.

Sounds awesome mate. You've got plenty of time to get ready, you can even drop down to the mid 160's to train at and lose a couple of pounds the week leading into the meet. That's pretty easy, just water & food manipulation. I'll be following along James MF.

That's what I'm thinking man. If I cut down slow towards the 160s and get my strength up within the weight class I should be a strong contender. I've been following your journal for a while man. Your lifts are super impressive, and your form is spot on.

I honestly think you will go pretty well. What do you think you would be capable of lifting? Have a look at some results of the guys that are doing well in your class, that way you have a good base point to aim for. I'm looking forward to see how you go, will be your first meet right?

First meet is correct! I'm sitting right now in class II with my lifts, so I'm hoping to boost that up to Class I by may.

Yeah I have plenty of time before the comp, but I've been into powerlifting for a long time now. Just starting to cut to hit the 73 kg class instead of the 77
