I did not see a powerlifting general in the catalog, and that's a darn shame, so I'm getting the ball rolling.
Today was squat day of the 3rd week of my first cycle(5/3/1+ week). Did all of my warm ups and first 2 work sets(up to 270 lbs) beltless, belted up and got 8 reps of my 1+ weight(305). Took a few minutes to rest and decided I needed to do some Joker singles.
Nailed 320x1, 340x1, and a pretty tough 360x1 that scared me a little on the drive back up due to a little back twinge. Thought I had just switched trains from gains to snap city, lol.
After that I backed off to my first work set and just did 3x5 of my first work set(240). I dunno what it is about squats but I just can't seem to do any real volume work after the main event/Jokers.
I gave back extensions a try, after watching the California Strength video on them. I feel like the back pump is an awful feeling, which leads me to the conclusion that I may need to work on them for a while.
There's my day. Ask questions, post PRs, discuss routines/lifts/meets/etc

So I have hypothyroidism.
I want to be able to determine how much my metabolism slowed so I can re-structure my diet perfectly caloric wise (main goal).
I want to cut and still eat enough to build muscle.
I guess eatstopeat is good as I heard good things about it.
I am skinnyfat and I think, as a 67kg, 1.73m tall, 17%bf possessing, 23 year old male, a really small, but progressive body composition change is the way to go.
TL;DR please read it slowly and carefully, I beg you.
I mentioned my goals to my doc,and she just wanted to raise my synthroid dose, which scared me actually.
I might change my doc.
