    Extra weight down to food in systtem and water being held in thos muscles. Hopefully it should mean you have a couple of good days in the gym.

    What are the ingredients of the creamer and where are the 25 cals coming from? ANy reason you don't add a splash of milk to your coffee once a day?

    Well, it's not an ingredient list I would personally want to put in my body but if you're ok with it. You can factor it into your macro's if you like, I know how exact you like to be.

    I have 3-4 cups tea/coffee per day and don't factor them in to mine. The difference is so small for skim milk.

    Your cals look a bit light for yesterday?

    An extra 25 cals a day at your macro's and total cals won't matter. Go for it, you've gotta enjoy something that goes in your mouth when cutting!

    Injury prospects plus the fact my legs respond better to higher reps is why I don't go too heavy on squats. 10-12 reps one week and 15-20 the next.

    Honestly don't sweat on a little bit of salt. It's not gonna hurt at this stage. It just might make a difference on your weight if you take in alot the day before a weigh in.

    What do you guys call heavy?? I thought higher reps were more than that SteM, i do my sets of 10, so i guess i could go up on weight and do 8 reps?? SteM and 405 do you guys do or ever done box squat?? Thats what i do and let me tell you i have never felt better while squatting. No lower back pressure, no knee pressure, nothing, just hamstrings, gluteus and quads....

    Heavy reps for me are 4-8, depending what workout cycle i do. Currently 6-8 reps on my heavy week and 10-12 reps on my light week. My next cycle will be 4-6 reps alt with 8-10. Except legs as above.

    Box squats have their place but they aren't for me. Generally you would use less weight but I actually find normal squats better for my lower back. I have no issue with 'tucking under' the lower back.

    Fair play man. Fitting it in around sh!tty hours is a task but is what seperates the men from the boys. Does your wife ever see you?

    Keep it going the next few days mate, I'm away on a trip to London but looking forward to the pics when I get back.

    In what do you use the worcestershire and hot sauce on?? The chicken?? If so i can give you some spice seasoning which are fantastic, lots of flavor, for sure you wont think about cheating

    Go to your local super market and get these seasonings from Mc Cormick, Hamburger, StrakHouse Onion Burger, SmokeHouse Maple, BBQ, i have a coffee grinder i bought just to grind spices and stuff and what i did was grinded these spices and made them almost the consistency of a powder, i change them up, you can use them all for either a steak, burger, chicken, whatever. Try them, you wont be dissapointed. They are like 2 bucks each or less. Hope you like them

    Ok last week wt:195.8 at 16.4%
    this week wt:195.0 at 15.8%
    Lbm 74.5

    Although i only lost .8 lb my bf went down 0.6% which is good i suppose.. I think now is where im getting to the point where things get a little tuffer... Im pretty close to a Plateau if history repeats itself.. I am thinking of gibing it another week or 2 and see how things go and then maybe adding 15 more mins of fasted cardio as well as possibly taking eca stack if i indeed slow down.. Stem??

    Will post pics this afternoon ... Took them this am...

    Mate, your weight loss appears to have slowed this week because of your refeed last weekend. Suspect you will drop 2lbs or so again this coming week. And a 0.6% drop in bodyfat in 1 week is pretty awesome.

    Cheat every 2 weeks? In theory, your refeed is your cheat to a degree. Ideally you wouldn't really add extra fat to the carb meals but it won't make a huge difference in the big scheme of things. You can get down to 10-12% even with a weekly cheat. It just takes a little longer. The issue people have with cheating is that they go all out balls to the wall. If it is a controlled cheat it can actually be beneficial to your progress.

    Anyway, after my 3 day cheat this weekend, I'm a fine one to lecture!!!!

    Now, where's them photo's?

    yeh i hope cuz of the refeed.. i wouldnt consider it much of a cheat cuz all i do difft is eat more oats and more yams oh boy!!stop the presses!

    will talk to u more bout these cheats.. if i can get to sub 12% cheating once every week or 2 it may be better.. this waiting a month thing is making it tuff.. wearing on me.. i eat the same 6 meals 7 days/week for a month strait.. i know boo hoo hoo rite poor little me....

    glad to hear u had a good weekend i didnt think ud be bak til tomorrow..

    finally got puter working so here goes the battle with the attachments..im gonna do them in 3 posts so itll be easier to do for me ..
