    Fair enough.
    Might be worth really focusing on your squat until it’s in the 170-180kg range.
    If you’ve got a reasonable build for deadlifting it should rise with your squat even without training it up to a certain point, particularly if you’ve done nothing with a wider stance before as your hip strength is likely to go through the roof with the switch to a wider squat stance.

    Started a linear progression program a couple of weeks ago which I'm confident will start paying dividends.

    Day 1: 112.5kg 3x5 (90% 1RM) and 62.5kg 10x5 (50%)
    Day 2: 75kg 9x3 (60%)
    Day 3: 87.5kg 6x4 (70%)

    Definitely think I need to put deadlifts on the back burner till I get my squat numbers up.

    Looking at my last belfie I think I’ve lost a bit of fat around my back/waist. Also trust my calves to still be the most developed part of my lower body :'(.

    I also trained in a sports bra for squats for the first time in Thursday and no one gave two shits. It was excellent, I moved up weights!

    Also a bit of a lol story - the mate I’ve whinged about (the ‘love yourself one’) has started sending me belfies because I have, and her butt is literally all fat - she doesn’t do any exercise (except cardio, yet she says I’m being mean when I tell her cardio will do nothing for her butt).

    So somehow, I’m meant to praise her ‘big’ (aka fat) behind while listening to her lecture my ‘overtraining’ because I have an ‘eating disorder’.

    The insecurity kills me.

    Ive been immensely enjoying my varied and weird training of late and am feeling pretty good so to hell with it, pics up kids.

    For some context my stepdad (who was a total jerk) always told me you cant keep abs past 30 and this was the other night at the gym as a bit of an F** you to him (hence the finger). I'm closing in on 31, 90kgs, 183cm, really don't track what weight I'm lifting as I'm just pushing myself with different sets and excercises constantly. Lots of high intensity cardio and core work plus all sorts of weird lifting combos (sometimes 3 sets of 4/6 heavy sometimes 6 sets of 12 mid range weight).

    All in all I'm pretty happy with the overall fitness and aesthetics at the moment.

    I'd try some squat variations. I don't conventional backsquat at all for similar reasons- long femurs & I don't like the 'fold' position it forces me into, but I do a lot of box squats which allows me to keep an upright torso. You'll probably be surprised how much weight you can move around doing these instead.

    What is a bench press that doesn't suck for you?

    For where I'm at 120 would be a pass. I'd like at least 130+ though.

    Just an update a few weeks on;

    2km time trial is down to 7:36

    My lifts all remained the same or slightly improved

    Current body weight 83.5kg which I am very happy with. It’s the lightest I’ve been in 3 years since I was training for my comp.

    My training over the pre season/Christmas break;

    Weight sessions x 6 a week. Legs/pull/push split
    Rep range was 5-8 around 12-16 sets for legs/back/chest and 6-8 for bis/tris/shoulders

    Running has been consistent 4-6 sessions a week and would vary from hill sprints upto 12-16km runs just depends on what I feel like training

    Diet has been solid, hitting around 2600 calories a day expect Saturday’s where I’d have a cheat meal Saturday night. Eating with a bit more instinct than strictly sticking to a meal plan. I will get around 250g of protein a day and vary carbs and fats.
