20 lbs of Bodyweight Can Make The Difference Between Ripped And Fat, Strong And Weak…

I cant believe we are almost at the end of January but I am down to my last 17 days of my winter bulk up.

I havent weighed in for a while but I am sure I have gained at least 20 lbs from the winter.

My lifting this year has been strong. I am deadlifting, ass to the floor, towards the mid 300s, deadlifting slightly over 500 and today I almost bench paused 295 lbs.

I am enjoy lifting heavy weights in the winter and making gains, the only thing I dont like is the extra bodyfat.

I dont care what you say, if you are get strong, you need a little bit of fat.

It’s also crazy how 20 lbs make such a big difference.  When I weigh between 155-160 lbs I will have ripped abs, but when I get near 180 I start looking fat.

I hit a sweet spot, which is the picture above, at around 175ish.

For lifting weights, its night and day.

At 155, I cant lift to save my life. My bench press max is at most 265 and I feel like a skeleton trying to squat anything.

At 180, I feel jacked. Back in my early 30s I would bench 225 for 20 reps and 315 for 4 like it was nothing.

I would say 98% of the guys in an average gym look the same all year round. They dont lift heavy in the winter, they dont diet hard in the summer and they never get to a level of cut like this.
