Really cool Tom have you had the straight bar muscle up for a while? What helped you the most in achieving it?

Weight gain for me is pretty slow too, around 1kg/month, sometimes more sometimes less. That's fine as hopefully it means there's not too much 'bad weight' being gained, but after being sick for a few days I've lost 3kg
Hopefully it comes back soon. How much do you weight now then, or do you not know?

In regards to 531 I guess it's due to the rounding of values, especially with lifts like the OHP where if the 1RM increase by 2.5kg, your 85% won't change much. I think I saw some 1.25kg plates kicking about at my gym, so if they have them that would be very useful. Looking forward to getting started. Which 1RM calculator do you normally use, I mean does it vary between lifts?
And the 90% 1RM only applies to the first cycle, after that week is added to that 1RM, right?
Sorry to clog up your log, just wanted to make sure.
