    @watts6151 fantastic V shape!

    Don't know if I can get my shoulders where yours are but trying.

    Thanks, back and shoulders are strong point for me, upper chest still refuses to grow Though

    Looking great yourself
    I find giving shoulders priority over bench
    Gives the best growth along with perseverance

    With more focus on incline movements

    Incline bb press is 315 for sets of 8

    Well then lol. You would think that would be sufficient volume.

    This new workout program is very different. I am not used to doing so much accessory work it almost feels like I am doing nothing. But my glute medius is killing me. I know DOMS doesn't mean much but it's nice to feel certain muscles working (not quads taking over haha). I kind of miss my squats and regular deadlifts but it's good to try new things and switch it up now and again.

    Also I still don't now if I am in a deficit because my weight is a disaster. I dropped about 3lbs after my lifting break. I am glad I took a week off otherwise my weight would have dropped from the new program and less volume and I would have freaked out. Hopefully it climbs back up to normal soon so I know if I am actually losing or not.

    I’ve gained quite a lot. I built a full gym in my spare room and I’m actually sticking with the home gym. I’m fed up with teenagers in groups around the kit I need and all they do is gossip and play on Facebook.

    I had gotten a little over-exuberant shortly thereafter and spent 10 minutes jumping on a trampoline (after leg day) and had my calves absolutely killing for a week (not in a good way) so I had to cut back on my lifts a little this week. I'm kind of unsure of how to take that. Are you guys good at trampoliney-type-stuff?

    Some people who skip/jump rope for the first time also complain of calf soreness...nothing to worry about, really, your body will get used to it (conditioning) if you keep doing it....like anything....I cycle so it takes a lot to get my calves to react...I don't do anything trampoline based.

    My cut is still slow...have maintained 159 lbs for 4 months and looking to head downwards again now gyms are open in the UK.

    1. should I lean out slowly to see if I have abs below my bellybutton.
    2. Increase my cals to build chest shoulders and quads faster?

    It really depends on what your ultimate goals are. Do you feel like you want to get leaner? Is it worth the sacrifice? What would be your plans when you get to that point? Would you run a gaining cycle? Maintain?

    I would say maintaining/recomp you can still build a bit but also lean out a bit too. So that's my vote. It's totally up to you though and your goals

    Well ya he is pretty lean so in that case I would recommend recompbulk, like a hair above maintenance.
