    The gas has gone since I stopped eating my sugar free but sucralose laden sweets!!!

    Had a cheat meal saturday rather than a cheat weekend and my macros were a bit off Sunday but not madly so.

    Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness!

    Arginine assists in nitric oxide production. And it's a vastdilator, gives me great pumps!

    Give your pancake syrup a rear for a day or 2 and see if your gas stops. The main sweetener in my syrup is sorbitol.

    Ha ha, just lay off the pancakes to see for a day, addict

    My arginine comes from a bulk powder company. You'll have them in the States, no doubt. It's Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate.

    Well, it's all gone a bit pear shaped this week. Missed both my my cardio sessions and had to drop deadlifts from my back workout this week although everything else in the gym has been awesome.

    Diet has come off the rails since my business meet on Tuesday. 2 days of menu tastings and then I am away for my anniversary at the weekend. Sooooooo, I have decided on a mini cut for 2 weeks to get me back on the plan. As of next Wednesday that's 2 weeks where I'll just drip my final meal carbs.

    No point weighing in for another couple of weeks either!

    So, my mini cut starts here. Weighed in at 181 this morning which is 6-7lbs above where I wanted to be. I suspect I'll run this for 4 weeks until I move house and then have a Deload period.

    Cutting macro's 240/250/45 C/P/F and back up to 5 meals a day!

    Just got back from a few days away for my 10year anniversary. Food was ok but stately home (older than the USA!) and setting was stunning.

    I also have a meeting with a surgeon next week whom I am hoping will do my op in a couple of months!

    Man on a mission, again!

    oh i chekd my waist measurement this am too.. 35" up from 32".. LOL.. guess its time to cut. i like it and miss it. maintenance and bulking goes too slow with not a lot of results. IMO. it is a lot easier though. i know my wife will appreciate the break from all the pancakes! eggs r a lot easier to cook

    hopefully tomorrow we can pull out #22! ?? wat u think? hopefully the hand injury and 2days bad finish doesnt screw with his head...

    Ha ha, most people hate cutting but I love it. Results are quicker for sure but I also find it so much easier to stick to a plan! Except my night in with the boys on Saturday but that'll just be my cheat for the week.

    Cav will be good, he was unlucky with the crash and today? Well, you can't win them all. I should get to watch tomorrow stage live. Gotta be better than watching a miserable Scottish cvnt in a Wimbledon semi!!!

    So I managed 100 mins cardio over the last 3 days but that'll be it til Monday.

    Made a decision to drop deadlifts forever I twinges my lower back after 2 reps on my first work set today. It's not worth the risk anymore. I don't mind not squatting but I'll miss the dl's!!! On the plus side I was stronger on my china despite being several lbs heavier than last week!

    I have ongoing lower back issues. Result of car accident and one leg shorter than the other. I have a tendency to twist just a little but sometimes that's enough to give me pain and mobility issues for weeks. I have been using a hex bar which is much better as I pull straight up rather than up and back. C'est la vie! My health comes first though I am still feeling the twinge several hours later! It was only 130kg (286lbs)!

    May be that I never do them again. We shall see!
