    Gonna train legs tomorrow not today. I worked out a way of getting both cardio sessions in fasted and still having, hopefully, enough rest for them to recover between workouts. Same split, different days.

    So, 4 days in and my muscles definitely feel fuller. Also I am more vascular. And I have more wind Not all of it smells but I can never tell which ones will!!!

    I edited my workout schedule too so that I get my cardio on fasted both times. And, as I'm away this weekend day 1 will now fall on a Monday rather than a Sat/Sun.

    Day of rest today, legs tomorrow.

    Day 4 - Legs done. Missed out my last set each of split squats and hamstring curls. Partly because I felt a little twinge but also because its the first full legs workout in 3 weeks and I wanna be able to do my cardio in 2 days time and I have some walking to do at the weekend! Good workout, little more intense than usual, I'm gonna be sore anyway!

    2 meals down, 2 to go; I'm really enjoying only 4 meals a day. As soon as finances allow I'll be removing the vast majority of protein powders from my diet. They are about 20% of my total protein intake at the moment and I'm hoping to reduce them to about 10%, utilising BCAA's as a fast digesting protein instead.

    Glorious day, off out later to see the Olympic Torch relay which is pretty much coming down my street!

    Day 5-weigh in- 168lbs +1lb

    I suspect I'll get slightly false readings this week and next due to the sudden extra carbs and then my weekend away coming up but we shall see. 1lb is enough, happy it's not more.

    Olympic torch relay had a great atmosphere an it was hot and sunny, though my little girl got very restless because of te heat and the wait but we saw it together and have a little video clip of me explaining itto her (she just turned 2) which I had to cut short as I started filling up! Special moments!

    Delts, tri's and abs tonight. Just had pancakes for the third day running

    I think I'm about 10% which means I'm probably a little under as we are all our own worst critics. Visible 4 pack (I'd need 6% to see the bottom 2), plenty vascular in the whole lower ab area, forearms and upper arms (extra carbs really help here). I don't trust the ability of my other half to do a really good caliper test but I'll get her to do one tonight.

    Final lifting of the week done. Great workout, in fact all workouts were great this week, probably down to:

    1. Two weeks of Deload workouts
    2. Increased carbs
    3. My homemade pre workout formula
    4. Subconsciously working harder so I don't get fat due to increased cals!

    Anyway, tomorrow morning is fasted cardio and then I'm off for the weekend!

    Final workout of the week- fasted cardio Upped Yohimbine to my max, for now, of 15mg. Hamstrings really sore from leg workout 2 days ago so I stuck to elliptical and bike. I have a few miles to cover over the weekend so didn't wanna ruin the legs by running today.

    Oats and chicken for breakfast, meal 2 within macro's and after that, who knows?

    Stop by anytime mate, can't imagine a lot is gonna happen un a small amount of time but this is a long haul. Cutting is so much more immediate with the results!

    Now let's just see if I really do know my onions!

    so are bcaas are beneficial when bulking? i thought they were only good for cutting? and were a waste when bulking because you would be getting more than enough from your foods.

    I think they are beneficial bulking, cutting or maintaining. Same as any other supplement, timing is important. They are super fast acting so I have them first thing in the morning, I feel benefit from them when taken immediately prior to training and immediately after. I use minimal amounts of whey protein though!

    Well, a very poor weekend in terms of diet but I always knew it would be. The saving grace was that i didnt drink. Did a lot of walking, quite a few hills. Some swimming too.

    I will weigh in tomorrow morning just before my fasted cardio, neither of which is going to be pretty!

    At least you stayed away from the alchie dude. I find that to be my toughest challenge when I go out on the weekends, the food isn't so much of an issue.
