90kg is a mugs game. I'll almost certainly end up being a bit of a fat 110 dropping from 120, with plans to end up shredded in the 100's.

90kg would depend on how much you are experienced with cutting, or if you take the risk.

If i remember correctly on of the Lilliebridges, did cut from abover 103 to 89,9. Or he just faked the weigh-in. But regardless of that good luck.

edit: had to google "mugs game".

I think Dan Green has been using his "tricks" for a good few years now, and won't be progressing at the same rate you will be for the next couple of years.
Plans to take Belyaev's numbers while you're at it?

I'll follow Dans journey alot, like every semi-stalker and he stated basically his problem is that he is to heavy for -100kg and when he started 2011-2012 2012 he had also to cut before a meet. That takes a toll, his best meet was at rum, where he did cut from 113.
And about the "tricks", if he wanted he could probably still blast more into it, but people did claim that he burned himself out over the last year.

Currently he usually sits about 115kg.

it's once you start having to spend significant time in a dehydrated state and use even more dangerous mechanisms like prescription diuretics that you start risking recovery even with 24-hour weigh in periods. if you are having to do that and then jump on IV bags of fluid / electrolytes to recover you seriously need to think whether you are truly 100% regardless of getting your BW back to pre cut amounts. it would be interesting to see what big cut specialists like matt kroc and chris duffin where doing in training pre cut compared to competition even if they broke records etc.

Yes but it was 9:55pm and the gym shut at 10pm and I would hate to be there until 10pm waiting for people to f**k off home so I could close up and go home so I opted to tidy my weights away and be content with the PB Happy

I don't know. I want to know, but I don't. I don't really have a clue what I can squat pushed to the max in either apparel at the moment. All we can go off are my PB's which both leave a fair bit of room for improvement, of 325kg in wraps and 285kg in sleeves. But the 325 was in a monolift so that probably means something as well. I've not been over 310kg with a walkout, but I probably could. It's all very tricky to draw a comparison. I haven't pushed my squat in sleeves because I was focussing on doing well in wraps, but I will push it now and see where it ends up, hoping for something over 300! Then I'll build up to another peak in wraps, however I will be stronger when I get there so once again it won't be that comparable.


f**k it, I reckon between 20 and 30kg.
