I can gain strength while losing. The point was I tried going back to isolating body parts (bodybuilding) and my numbers on my main lifts got destroyed in the last couple of months. Rep were higher, volume was higher, etc. Have to go back to powerlfting/strongman type training. This is ego killer. I'd rather deal with a couple of strains than be weak.
lifting numbers don't matter.
the scale, the bodyfat %, the cholesterol, the blood pressure, those are the only numbers that matter now.
we're old, dude. looking big in a t-shirt or lifting as much as the youngin's.... no more time for that nonsense.
i want you around to debate on getbig for another 40 or 50 years man. GetLean!
