A Month After Cutting Ended

So it’s been a month, I had planned that this month would be pretty static in what I was doing to let my body adjust to what happened and to give myself a bit of a break from the heavy lifting I had been doing. I have stuck with the plan of cycling my workouts […]

Stuff I Noticed. Stuff I Want To Do.

What changes have I noticed? Given today my weight was 224.0 which means that today I celebrate a 50lb loss here are some things of which I have taken particular notice: I have veins everywhere. Calves, shins, thighs, arms, shoulders. I haven’t seen any across the chest yet but I am sure they are there. […]

The Last 5 Pounds – 50lbs Down. Almost There.

So I am very fortunate to be in this situation. This cut has been the most successful cut I have ever done, I am actually within a cat’s whisker of being my final goal weight which is 100kg or 220lbs. It’s also a little bit awkward because since my “diets” haven’t ever managed to get […]

2015R1D62 – I’m Down. Not So Basic. Intermediate Reintroduction.

Tags:

I’m down about 10lbs total. I am sitting right at 252 but should be down in the 240s by the weekend. It’s not easy but not really that hard either thanks to my complete lack of appetite. I am planning on another 10 this month to get me sub-240 and I should start to look […]

2015R1D26 – Update. Changes Are Coming.

Tags: ,

So I am thinking about switching the weights up a bit for the time being. I feel like my rep count is sufficiently high that I can split a 1 day deadlift program into 3 separate movements and still hit around the same rep count (90-150 most days). The point would be to work some […]

2015R1 – The Cut

Tags:

I have to admit this is the worst phase for me. I assume it is for most people I mean who likes to be eating in deficit and having to work out just as hard? Anyway, it’s the price to pay for dirty bulking and achieving those strength goals. So to start I need to […]
