    Just checking in guys. I'll update with today's workout (which was one of my better) on Monday as I'm on my phone atm and hate typing. Just came home from putting our second dog to sleep in as many months and really need to take the weekend off from the forum and recover mentally.

    Despite this, diet has been (and will continue to be) on point all the way. Success will be mine by the summer.

    Sucks bro... all I can tell you is to love that dog as if every day were his last, don't ever take him or his love and loyalty for granted, and you'll at least have that in your heart when that time comes...

    Took a couple pics yesterday morning. 3 weeks into my cut, so far I don't appear to be losing any size (or strength). As you can see, I can't afford to lose any size, lol!

    Figured I'd also take the time to log yesterday's workout... so here we go:

    DAY 19 - Delt's, Traps, Tri's

    Shoulder Warmup -

    Seated Lateral Raise - 2x15
    Sets 1-2: 20lbs x 15

    Bent Seated Lateral raise - 2x15
    Set 1: 20lbs x 15
    Set 2: 15lbs x 15

    Close Grip Bench Press - 4 x6-10
    Set 1: 225lbs x 9
    Set 2: 225lbs x 6
    Set 3: 205lbs x 7
    Set 4: 185lbs x 7

    Seated Dumbbell Press - 4x12
    Set 1: 70lbs x 11
    Set 2: 60lbs x 12
    Set 3: 60lbs x 10
    Set 4: 55lbs x 13

    Cable Upright Row - 4x15
    Set 1: 100lbs x 15
    Set 2: 100lbs x 15
    Set 3: 90lbs x 15
    Set 4: 85lbs x 15

    Dumbbell Shrugs - 4x12
    Sets 1-2: 95lbs x 12
    Sets 3-4: 90lbs x 12

    Parallel Bar Dips - 4x12
    Sets 1-4: 25lbs x 12 (belt with chain and 25lb plate)

    Note - need to go heavier on this next time, but haven't done them in a while and wanted to be prudent to avoid injury as my shoulder has been bugging me again

    Diet has been very good - not PERFECT, but very very good. Tomorrow is carb up day!!!! I have lots of cereal waiting for me, as well as sushi, oats, my favorite bread (w/ PB&J), and the most awesome thing ever - coconut almond ice cream w/ chocolate swirls!! Aww hell yea. I'll make it fit my macros, no worries. Protein consumption tomorrow will likely be all liquid egg whites, 300g protein worth - in an effort to keep 'collateral' fat to a bare minimum, so as to allow for more fun stuff.

    Hey GB, I happened to follow this thread from the very begining and logically read your thoughts about your results, how you haven`t improved your physics, do you even ligt thing - well i can tell you look like you seriously work out!

    But be careful how far you cut , you say you tend to lose muscle tissue easily and marcus brought the same point up. DOn`t get to extremes cause you`re risking your hard earned muslce. Cut to a point where you look good unless you`re competing or something. Then start super controled bulk without getting sloppy with food choices along the way. If you manage to put substantial amount of muscle while maintaining acceptable bf % like 12 for instance, next year cut would be 6-8 week piece of cake. There are many bodybuilders out there not making any progress year over year due to having their calendars booked with shows. IT`s always wise to take some time off competition/extreme cutting and focus on putting on size while eating clean..

    Hey Alex, thanks for your honest feedback and thoughts.

    Yes, I'm more or less planning on doing exactly as you're stating here... I want to cut bodyfat to an appreciable level (~ 10%) and then work to maintain somewhere between 10-12 year round' whilst slowly adding quality muscle. I'll basically be following a schedule along the lines of a 3 month cut (or UP TO 3 months, as needed) through March/April/May, 3 months of maintaining (through the summer) and 6 months of 'bulking' (through the fall/winter) although that's not really the right term as true bulking will never work for me.

    You're right though - my goal would be to make subsequent cuts shorter and shorter in duration, through a combo of adding more LBM and managing BF gains.

    Thanks brother. Even I'll admit I think I look decent here... but when the shirt comes off, I'm like wtf!?!?

    I'm 1/4 through this cut; I'm hoping to be able to post up 'proper' pics (i.e. shirtless, posed, etc.) for you all to critique at the midway point in 3 more weeks, but I'll have to play that by ear with regard to my comfort level at the time.

    Now if you'll all excuse me, I'm about to go eat a massive bowl of cereal and a pint of liquid egg whites for my first carb-up meal of the day.

    If it makes you feel any better and/or makes your decision easier, I wish I hadn't 'straight bulked'. It was never my intention. Over a year ago, I started out on a lean bulk plan - for me, that was lifting (HST style) 3x weekly, macros were 275g protein, 400g carbs, 60g fat. On off days, I was supposed to do cardio (60 mins) and drop carbs to 200g.

    Due to some personal issues I was going through during the time, I sort of 'winged' it and half-abandoned my plan. I did NO cardio, and pretty much let my 'lean' bulk become a standard bulk bordering on dirty bulk. Not a good idea for somebody like me who stores bodyfat so easily.

    I'd be a lot happier right now if I were 13% bodyfat cutting down to 9 rather than upwards of 18% trying to cut that in half. Cutting sucks... as Alex/I said above, the goal would be to shorten the time spent cutting. Just remember - all the time spent cutting = time spent not building muscle, so it's in everybody's best interest to cut as little as possible. This is only achievable by keeping bodyfat gains to a minimum... unless you're one of those people with such a ridiculously fast metabolism that it doesn't seem to matter.

    after reading that i think i might be doing the best thing for me by sticking with what im doing. the thing i wonder about is reducingcarbs on off days. i usually just keep them the same. as when i have a day off the gym im stil at work which is very hatd so i feel i still need the carbs. however i do hav one day a week where i dont work or train sometimes two days if im lucky! so starting yesterday since its my weekend off ive tried what your sticky said and only had carbs in first part of the day.

    Nope, I never work out fasted unless I plan to - i.e. when I'm playing with IF. When I'm 'standard' dieting, I always have a preworkout meal. 90% of the time, it's my protein smoothie:

    3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
    1/2 cup liquid egg whites
    1/4 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
    1/2 cup oats
    1tbsp natty PB
    1/2 tbsp instant coffee
    1/2 tbsp raw cacao powder
    1/2 cup 1% milkfat no salt added cottage cheese
    1/2 scoop ON whey
    1/2 scoop ON casein
    1 cup crushed ice
    2-4 packets stevia (depends on how sweet you like it)
    5g creatine monohydrate (unless I'm cutting)

    Works out to roughly 60g protein, 40g carbs, 15g fat. I prep all the ingredients the night before - dry all mixed together in the blender, wet all mixed together in another container. In the morning, I just dump the wet into the blender, add the ice, blend and I'm enjoying a delicious smoothie in 5 minutes.

    What you need to do is find a plan you think you can stick with, then run it for at least 6 weeks without changing anything. Switching things up constantly/too soon won't ever allow you to see what really does or doesn't work. Trust me, I spent 3 years doing that and basically got nowhere.

    Yes sir, although I cannot honestly say I've seen any vast improvement as a result, at least not yet. Still hoping for good things in the future.

    Forgot to mention my weigh-in this morning... bounced between 202 and 202.5 (digital scale, meh)... I'm going with 202lbs since I got that reading more often than the other. That would mean another 2lbs down from last week which, IMO, is absolutely PERFECT progress. If I can stay on track losing 1.5-2lbs a week with no decrease in strength, you're going to see a very happy GB.

    Day 22 - Chest & Tri's

    I was expecting a really good workout, but unfortunately that didn't happen. My joints ache, and I'm sleep deprived (I go through bouts of insomnia every couple of months... it'll pass soon). The carb up wasn't enough to counter those 2 issues, so here we go:

    Close Grip Bench Press - 4 x 6-10
    Set 1: 225lbs x 10
    Set 2: 225lbs x 7
    Set 3: 205lbs x 7
    Set 4: 185lbs x 8

    Incline Dumbbell Press - 3 x 4-6
    Set 1: 95lbs x 6
    Set 2: 95lbs x 6
    Set 3: 95lbs x 6

    ^^ This is where things started going wrong. I had intended to work with 110's, but decided at the last minute to drop to 105's due to how I was feeling. Well... I couldn't even get em' up off my chest. I have no doubt if somebody helped me with the 'pop' I would have been able to press them, but I have a strict rule that if I can't initially lift them on my own, I have no business working with them. So, I dropped to 95's which obviously went up like butter. Very disappointed. I'm sure it has to do with the issues I mentioned earlier, and possibly pre-exhausted tri's as I did have a decent set on close grip bench (much better than last week). Either way, I put up 100's on incline last week and I HATE going backwards. I don't think it's loss of strength due to dieting - but I'll be paying close attention.

    Flat Dumbbell Press - 3 x4-6
    Set 1: 115lbs x 6
    Set 2: 115lbs x 4
    Set 3: 100lbs x 6

    Go figure. I had a worse set than last week with incline, but better than last week on flat. WTF!!!!

    One-Arm Dumbbell French Press - 3 x 6-10
    Set 1: 40lbs x 10/10

    Switched to (light) Two-arm dumbbell press due to elbow pain.

    Set 2: 80lbs x 10
    Set 3: 80lbs x 10

    30 mins of cardio.

    Thanks buddy, I plan to! I'm all good from yesterday:

    Post Great Grains cereal (blueberry/cranberry, 2 huge bowls)
    3 waffles
    Protein smoothie w/ oats and banana
    16 pieces of sushi (spicy salmon and tuna rolls w/ avacado)
    2 slices of pizza
    'Lots' of coconut almond fudge ice cream
    PB&J sandwich

    Probably more but that's all I can remember right now. Met most of my protein needs via liquid egg whites.

    Heh... none of the above. Down 6lbs over the past 3 weeks which I'm happy about... a steady 2lbs/week so far which is great. I still look like shit with my shirt off, but there's not much I can do other than to continue losing bodyfat until I look like an AIDS patient.

    Yea, I decided to test it out just for shits and giggles. I wanted to stay synthetic 'stim free', i.e. no ECA or clen . No noticeable thermogenic effects, but it's definitely helping curb appetite... it might be worth the money just for that alone. Idk... I'll finish the can and report on it at that time. I did start a thread in the supplements section if you care to follow: http://forums.steroid.com/showthread...s#.UVCONheG2So

    Thanks man... but where you do see traps!?!

    I hate my traps... one of my worst muscle groups IMO, especially where they sit on the back (vs. the 'peaks'). But to answer your question - nothing really out of the ordinary. Standard DB/Barbell/Machine shrugs, sometimes I'll do bent over shrugs (to hit that back part), and hang cleans seem to help.

    Meh, somewhat, lol. I didn't count meticulously, but I also know I didn't overeat to a ridiculous degree. Since I'm so regimented 6 days a week, I'm not too concerned - and it's not a full-blown cheat day. i.e. i'm still eating egg whites, etc, not fast food and what not. The only thing I'm disappointed about is the pizza - but we bought it for workers who were replacing our boiler and water heater, and they didn't finish - so I did.

    It's a basic sit up using a bench (chair) without a back, forcing core stability throughout the entire exercise.

    We've got one of those chair thingies at my gym, I may give them a go. I read recently doing sit ups can give you bad posture, apparently doing them over time makes your hip bone slant forward, this is from Arnolds old coach, he invented an exercise called the frog crunch, which is a safer way to do them apparently. I still do crunches though, I like doing leg circles too, hit the abs nice with leg circles.

    I don't work abs often (over the course of a year), so I really don't worry much about this kind of thing. Still good to know and consider though.

    I work my abs twice per week at the mo, but I know people who don't bother working them, and there ripped, because you hit your abs when doing alot of compound movements.
    I think the best way to hit your abs is with deadlifts, I depleted my abs on Monday evening, on my Tuesday night workout my abs where sore, when I was doing deadlifts could really feel my sore abs working. When your bending up and down doing deadlifts you really squeeze your abs.
    for me the deadlift is the ultimate exercise. If I had to choose what I thought was the most beneficial exercise I would probably pick deads.
