The latter
Warm up to "working set" and then do 5x5 at that weight

I originally did it more like the first part you said and then a bunch of people told me I was doing it wrong

The 5x5 is at my working weight. I don't count my warm ups towards my workout or my working sets.

For example if i know i want a 5x5 at 495 i'll do it like this:
135 x 6
225 x 6
315 x 3-4
405 x 3
455 x 2-3
495 x 5x5

I figured as much. I've done both and use both. But each way gets me vastly different results. I think it just falls in line with the age old debate of whether to use one working/top set or using multiple working sets.

I'm a recovering fatty who's 47 and has a desk job. My P ratio is terrible. I ate a lot to gain the weight - I usually panic at 200 lbs and start a crazy diet, get weak, and have to regain the weight lifted, and end up gaining the weight over as well.

This time I decided to eat, eat, eat. 200 grams protein minimum a day. So during the holidays (Canadian Thanksgiving to Christmas holidays) no thoughts about it. Lift like crazy and eat. Lifts went up but too much fat for weight. (p ratio) Not a big deal - after the first competition I'll do a cut and get back down.

Most of those powerlifters cut weight similar to how us fighters do as well just to get in a lower weight class.... For example: I fight @145lbs but I weigh mid 170s. So I'll weigh in at 145lbs and the next day when I step into the ring I'm about 173.... I've seen 230lb powerlifters in the 199lb weight class using similar methods.

Yes, I cut A LOT of weight... Everybody is different though. But, generally if you see an mma fighters fight weight, they cut 20-30+ lbs to make that weight. And yes, I'm pro.

Powerlifters/Strongman competitors do the same thing. Although not even close to the level as combat sports competitors.

I'll know for sure as the time nears. I am supposed to be travelling around the province that week and may not be able to meet the "liquid eliminating demands" that water loading requires. I'm talking 4 hours trips, stop for an hour, then 4 hours back. Not conducive to rest stops.

In addition, it's my first meet and I'd hate to screw up if I don't get the water reload correct.

We had a session today to set our openers as we're four weeks out. I managed a PR of 385 on my squat and 455 on my deadlift as well.

Had our meet today:


Squats: 165 kg (364 lb) opener, 175 kg (386 lb) second, and 182.5 kg (402 lb) final all three passed and the third lift was a lifetime PR.
Bench: 110 kg (242 lb) opener failed on butt lift but was easy, 115 kg (254 lb) second passed, 120 kg (265 lb would have been a PR) failed on butt lift again and hurt my back.
Deadlifts: 195 kg (430 lb) opener passed, 202.5 kg (446 lb) foot moved failed, 202.5 again passed.

So, all in all I think I had a good day. I managed to set a PR on my squats which was also a lifetime goal for me. (Looking for 3/4/5 by age 50, 47 almost 48 right now.)

What do you weigh? Height? Years lifting? What was your weight class range? How did you rank? What did you use for aids (i.e. Squat suit, bench suit, elbow wraps, knee wraps, ect)

Sorry, I competed in 105 kg Masters 1 class. I weighed in at 101 kg and am 5'9. I'm starting my fifth year of lifting, although this will be my second year injury/surgery free. It was raw classic, so belt and knee sleeves. There were only two of us in my class, so at least I didn't come third. My wilks was 303.3

Once upon a time I weighed 247 lbs at 35% body fat. My joints were shot and the final nail in the coffin was when I pinched a nerve in my back unboxing a server. An IT guy who can't unbox an empty server is not in a good spot. So, I resolved to lose weight. I picked up lifting and dieted down to 171 at about 17%. Turns out I like lifting and want to be a strong old guy who can shamelessly walk shirtless. I had a few setbacks like hernias, but have been essentially I've been injury free and properly training the past two years.

Legit numbers man! I always like to see people at an older age making real progress. Do you have any baseline numbers from when you first started training? Were you always a fairly strong person?

No, I was always the walking/running type. Very, very weak. Initial numbers were from back in Feb 09. I've kept a tally all along with significant events in it. Squat 115 lbs, Bench 105 lbs, Deadlift 135 lbs, OHP 75 lbs. If you had told me then that I would be lifting what I am today I never would have thought it possible. I can OHP with a bit of leg drive 200 lbs last time I checked.

Interesting. I was also very weak when I first started weight training. Kind of funny because in the weight room I was extremely weak, but on the wrestling mat or in football I was always much stronger than everyone.

I have a buddy who never touched a weight in his life. Not too big he's 5'7" about 180lbs. Great athlete though. And the first time he ever benched he put up 405.... Which I witnessed otherwise I'd never believe it. Funny how some ppl are just caveman strong.
