Lucas Irwin: 75 Days Out

WEIGHT: 216.5

To this point, I am very satisfied with my training and progress.  I am still staying as heavy as I can on all of my lifts and avoiding the 13+ rep ranges, unless it is a burnout.  My waist has really started to shrink and I am seeing the benefits of avoiding direct oblique training this off-season.  I have a pretty thick waist from all the olympic style lifting I did during college football, so I really have to be careful when I hit a lot of powerlifting moves in the off season.  Heavy squats and deadlifts give me plenty of core work; so hitting my obliques directly would really push them out.  I think I may have actually managed to shrink my waist size all together!  Pair that with wider lats and thicker leg development and we may have a nice thing going here!

My diet and training will continue as usual for at least the next 3-4 weeks; I am on a perfect pace and want to keep it that way.  By the way…. I still have not yet had to incorporate that damn treadmill or any other piece of cardio equipment into my training.  Gotta love that!
