    Fck cutting weight during the holidays. I decided to maintain 190 and test my maxes on Dec 21.
    Instead of running a second 5/3/1, I'm jumping right into a Powerlifting Peaking cycle.
    I have to skip week 1 to be able to test my PRs before flying home to Quebec.

    What an INSANE workout despite feeling like trash going in the day after heavy DLs.

    I've never done 2x365 on squats, never done 2x270 on bench, and definitely never done 8x30 on side delts. Also, it's my last day of the cycle. I can't wait to see what I can do after letting the fatigue dissipate for a week. Next Thursday is D-DAY.

    Last but not least...
    BW Post-Gym: 199.0 lbs
    I'm coming in at 200 lbs next week, which is a lifetime goal.

    2017 PRs

    Deadlift
    500 lbs

    Bench
    300 lbs

    Squat
    385 lbs PR

    Morning BW: 200.6 lbs

    I'm pretty sure I can squat 400 lbs, but I'd have to do it first thing in the training session. 385 is a 10 lbs lifetime PR nonetheless.

    This year has been crazy. I got my degree, I got my pro card in Men's Physique, I finished the first book in Toastmasters (CC designation), and hit my 200 lbs bodyweight goal. I learned a tremendous amount about myself by achieving all my goals, and I made peace with the past by completing the self-authoring system from Jordan Peterson.

    Moving forward, I have even bigger goals. I am studying for the GMAT, and plan to start my MBA in Fall 2018. I want to compete in Men's Physique at the Pro level. Doing motivational speeches is another goal that seems to make more and more sense. I get really good feedback in Toastmasters, and I think I have a story to share with an interesting approach.

    In the end, I need to focus my energies on different platform to grow my following, which will increase my chances of success in both Physique and speeches. I learned a tremendous amount around these forums, and the log helped me when I needed it the most. Feel free to follow me on IG, which is where I'll be moving forward.

    THE END

    Might very well sign up for a Powerlifting meet towards the end of August, wonder if I should log my prep here?

    I have been studying for about 5 months to pass the GMAT (pre-requisite to enter MBA programs). My math score was always low, and I needed a minimum of 550 total to enter the program here. In my practice tests, I got 480, then 530, then 450. Needless to say, I had mixed feelings going in. After 3.5hrs of hard work, I got my score:

    590!!!

    I'm so proud right now, I can't wait to see if I'm accepted into the September cohort.

    That's it for the day. Cut back on the volume because I felt like garbage today. Taking tomorrow off as planned to be fully back on Thursday.

    Spotted a guy that did 3 reps of close grip incline bench with 355 lbs. WTF!

    Great session, super happy with my bench and squat right now. Hopefully the deadlifts pick up on the next meso and I hit 3 big PRs at the meet.

    I'm looking at getting certified and start coaching. I'd like to get two certifications, one for training and one for nutrition. So far ISSA seems to be the best option. They have a Strength and conditioning and a bodybuilding cert, not sure which one to pick.

    Also, they have a fitness nutrition cert, which was created by the guys from Precision Nutrition. I'm going to call them and see if I can rock a deal by buying two. It's still pretty expensive at around $780 CAD each!!! I want to do it now because when my MBA starts in September, if it does, I'll be busy for the next 4 years and won't have time to get certified.
