    Hey guys, finally attempting to REALLY cut for the first time this year.

    (dropping from a 5 day split w/ one bodypart per day to this)

    3. Lat pulldowns: 3 sets
    4. Rear laterals: 3 sets
    5. Low rows: 3 sets
    6. BB Shrugs: 4-5 sets(respond better to higher volume for traps)

    After WO: Protein shake(50 g) w/creatine, glutamine, and flax. Mixed w/ 1 ½ cups of 1% milk. Also Carb shake(50g) mixed w/ juice.

    Your post workout needs work. Use high gi carbs with protein, also no fats to slow insulin response.
    Also, ditch the yogurt and sub for cottage cheese to get some casein (more protein)
    I would add carbs from oats (1C dry) in the morning, and leave the 1C rice. Total should be around 100-150g if you wanna low carb.
    Sub flax somewhere else in diet, perhaps during dinner.

    Thanks for the response.

    I will move the flax around.

    Concerning the yogurt, I don't do cottage cheese. Any alternatives???

    Thanks, Stan
