    I tried a cyclical keto, a version with mostly healthy but some inevitable saturated fats. I quit it when I saw what it did to the plumbing of my dishwasher!

    Keto diets come in many shapes and sizes. 70/30 is one, but there's also 30/70 and everything in-between. As far as food choices go, while keto diets don't technically have to be clean, I would never run one that way again (yes I have in the past and enjoyed the shit outta bacon every day!) - I'd opt for a clean high protein - moderate fat approach.

    Saturday morning weigh in... broke the 200lb mark today guys, sitting at 200.5lbs empty, am.

    I have at least 2 weeks to continue on this plan before cutting; technically, I could extend it to 4 weeks and I may just do that. I am still pushing for 205lbs, 210lbs would be awesome but that's unrealistic at this point.

    Wish me luck!!! When all is said and done, 190lbs @ 10% would be awesome, but probably won't get there, this time.

    I haven't been tracking averages tbh... just doing my best to stay focused on training and hitting my macros. It is what it is...

    I'd guesstimate around 15%. My bodyfat is hard to judge because I hold it so oddly; Even at ~10% I had love handles and lower belly fat/flab, but I was ripped enough everywhere else to be showing vascularity in my traps, chest, delts, etc without flexing. Fvcking sucks!

    At this point, long term goal would be 200lbs + at 10% or lower. Really, i'm just trying to achieve a bodybuilder's physique. Not looking to be HUGE, just looking to have decent size and that symmetry I lack all over.

    Nope! Hopefully next time i'll be able to. This was a bad time... new baby, a lot of personal things to work through with my wife, etc. Like I mentioned before, it's almost a miracle that i've been able to keep up any level of training. A lot of people would have abandoned the whole thing through this mess of mine.

    front raises with toal control, and laying side laterals, i also seen this guy who has huge delts lean to his left while holding a fixed bar with his right hand so he doesnt tip over and do side laterals with his left, he said it takes away any cheat, then repeat on the other side

    How is your son doing, I do remember when he was born you were still on your cycle. How is fatherhood? I ran a 12 week cycle of 500mg of test e and 4 weeks on dbol 40mg daily. I went from 206lb to 240lb. I am currently cutting down by doing cardio 5x weekly. My show is oct/nov this year so I plan on runnin one more cycle june-ish. I'm still reading all these threads lol but about time the Yanks got rid of AJ Brunett

    Isolation movements are your best friend also supersets. My delt plan for you would be:

    Behind the back cable laterals 4 sets 8-12reps
    Barbell front laterals 3 sets 7-12 reps
    Reverse pec deck 4 sets 8-13 reps (use reverse grip, thumbs down every other set)
    Cable face pull 3 sets 8-12 reps
    Wide grip barbell upright rows (a very wide grip) 3 sets 8-12reps
    Seated dumbbell laterals FST-7 7 sets 7 reps (30sec to 60sec breaks between sets)

    Loving fatherhood bro... it's the greatest thing ever! 240lbs... BEAST!!! I'm sitting at 205lbs currently... but a fat 205

    I'm thrilled they got rid of Burnett.... he was a bum... I can't stand hot/cold pitchers. I'll take somebody consistently 'decent/average' any day over that crap.

    Seems like a lot of work for such a small group, and no 'meat and potatoes' press type lift... however I will be incorporating some of this no doubt. Thx B!!

    These excercises will hit every head of the delt and shock the muscles to grow. Instead of compound movements your hitting all three heads individually. Although it might seem like alot it will get the job done. Good luck mate

    As of Saturday morning, i'm sitting at 203lbs empty and dry. 1 week left on this 'bulk', and I'm on track to hit 205... only 5lbs less than my originally projected weight. Not bad.

    Stay tuned, because I will be starting a NEW cutting thread... 12 weeks to get back to 10%. I should easily be able to do it. I intend to get my shit back on track and symbolically close this recent dark chapter of my life with the end of this bulk. As such, I will be back on point, and trying to keep my new log updated daily with my diet plan and training regimen.

    Thanks man, I appreciate your support!!

    Nah, i'll go by visual estimate. Unless done professionaly and 7-9 points, calipers aren't accurate enough most of the time IMO, and I can get pretty close visually anyway. Plus, i'm so uninterested in numbers at this point... it's all about the look for me.

    Looking forward to seeing this Cut m8... Any ideas on how you will transition to the cut.... (Personally I would flick the switch overnight and put in a few cardio sessions a day and drop the cals by 500..... You gonna IF???)

    Currently cutting myself for summer, hitting it harder than ever, I wanna get sub 10%.... 7 or 8 would be great tho but I have never been anywhere neat so IDK...

    I'm definitely gonna flick the switch. In fact, I think it's beneficial when cutting, to completely shock your body and drastically reduce calories (from a bulk that is). I wouldn't do the same the other way around, going from a cut to bulk however.

    I won't be IF'ing to reach my goal - just a straight up 12 week carb cycle based regimen. Lots of cardio, lowering the weights and upping the reps, shortening rest between sets, etc. Once I reach my goal, I will most likely start IF'ing again to maintain throughout the summer and/or shred further... or try to add lean mass... it all depends on my condition around July 1.

    Looking forward to shedding the bodyfat and HOPEFULLY revealing some new gains.

    PS - love your new avy, I hope they catch that cocksvcker.

    I won't be IF'ing to reach my goal - just a straight up 12 week carb cycle based regimen. Lots of cardio, lowering the weights and upping the reps Why? Personally I wouldnt.. But hey, you know what worked last time for ya., shortening rest between sets, etc. Once I reach my goal, I will most likely start IF'ing again to maintain throughout the summer and/or shred further... or try to add lean mass... it all depends on my condition around July 1.

    Looking forward to shedding the bodyfat and HOPEFULLY revealing some new gains. Me too, I can wait to get lean and then ramp some heavy dosages and see what happens to my body

    PS - love your new avy, I hope they catch that cocksvcker. I know yeah.... Being from the UK I dont have much influence, at least with the Avi on here people may say ''Who is knoy?"

    As you already stated, i'm sticking with what I had great sucess with in the past. I haven't perfected IFing yet, but I came damn close to perfecting my last carb cycle routine for fat loss. Once I'm there again, i'll have the leeway to experiment a bit more with IF.

    I'm basically going to do exactly what I did last time, but with some adjusted macros. I am starting with more LBM than last time, and a bit more fat as well. I won't be working with Nark during this cut. I plan to do more with him down the road however.

    Thanks for your support bro... i'm hoping that seeing my abs again will fuel self-motivation!

    Bumping this to update later. Still deciding whether I'll be able to commit to daily updates on a cutting log or not. In the meantime, my cut did start and i'm in just under 2 weeks. Last weigh in was Saturday morning at 196lbs, down quite a bit (mostly water). Tomorrow morning is the next one!

    Mate, don't worry about daily updates, just weekly updates would be pretty cool. No pressure then!

    ^^ thanks Stem. The thing is when i'm on a roll, I enjoy logging daily workouts to stay motivated. If I were to update weekly with anything other than weight, it would be daunting to input all that data.

    Either way though, for now, I will update as often as possible. Btw, I'm STARVING!!!

    Ha ha, welcome back to cutting! You know you'll kinda get used to it!

    Hopefully you'll do what you can. I plan on listing my workouts at the start of my log and leave that at that. I will chip into it every now and again with updates and feelings etc. but that's me. You're you! You'll work it out mate.

    Oh, one more thing GOOD LUCK!

    Haha thanks guys. Actually, cutting is like nothing to me. I've spent so much time doing it, it's like second nature. I don't even have to think much about it. I find it much easier than trying to add mass. Train, stay disciplined on my diet, and it takes care of itself.
