    Wow, thank you so much Blondee... this is so warm and makes me feel so good!!

I haven't been on this site for very long, but from the length of time I have been here, I can tell that a lot of people look up to you .. there's a reason for that. You set a good example and IMO, are the picture of health. You live a well balanced lifestyle, train hard, eat well .. but also take breaks and eat crap (and by crap I mean oh so good) to reset your frame of mind.
    Bahahah, sometimes a bit too long of a break... nearly a year this last one. In the meantime, still soaking in your compliments, lol!

I used to get upset because I'd see people put in 1/4 of the effort that I do in the gym and they look amazing, and here I am, 5 days fasted cardio, weights, strict diet ... all for an inch.
    Likewise... it's comforting to know I'm not alone... you, Oatmeal, Twitz... and probably many others. Whether it's in our heads or not is debatable, but it's real to us, ya know?

    Hahaha, this is the most awesome post ever!! I may have to requote it in my thread from time to time, just to be reminded. Thank you SO much Blondee, I truly appreciate everything you've said here.

    Stay positive man, you have only just started your cut, you don't need me to tell you it won't happen over night. Don't mean to be patronizing, because I know you probably are far knowledgeable in nutrition then me, but Can I suggest don't know if you have read the book?the ultimate diet 2.0 it's designed to maintain or also gain LBM, while losing BF, it's designed for the genetically disadvantaged (like me and you) it's good shit, working for me,I will send you a copy of the book (PDF) if you like?

    Tomorrow will conclude phase 1 (2 weeks) of my 12 week routine. Time to post up my workout schedule for the following 2 weeks. Pretty standard stuff. Trust me though, the workouts will start to get interesting during phase 3 and beyond.

    Monday:Chest and Triceps

    Close Grip Bench - 4 x 6-10

    Incline Dumbbell Press - 3 x 4-6

    Flat Dumbbell Press - 3 x 4-6

    One-Arm Dumbbell French Press - 3 x6-10

    45 mins cardio

    Tuesday: Back, Bi's, Traps

    Warmup: Seated Lateral Raise - 2x15

    Underhand Pullups - 5 x 6-10

    Bent Over Dumbbell Row - (simultaneous, palms up) - 4 x 8-12

    Decline Pullovers - 4 x 8-12

    Dumbbell Shrugs - 3x15

    One Arm Dumbbell Preacher Curls - 4x12

    45 mins cardio

    Wednesday: Abs

    Roman Chair Sit-Ups - 5x10

    Decline Sit-Ups - 5x15

    Hang Cleans - 100 reps (as many sets as it takes)

    45 mins cardio

    Thursday: Legs

    Warmup: Dumbbell Swings - 5 mins, as many sets as it takes

    Front Squat - 5x10

    Walking Lunges - 150 meters (as many sets as it takes)

    Barbell Calf Raise - 5x10

    45 mins cardio

    Friday: Delts, Traps, Tri's

    Warmup: Seated Lateral Raise - 2x15

    Warmup: Seated Bent Lateral Raise - 2x15

    Close Grip Bench Press - 4 x 6-10

    Seated Dumbbell Press - 4x12

    Cable Upright Row - 4x15

    Dumbbell Shrugs - 4x12

    Weighted Parallel Bar Dips - 4x12

    45 mins cardio

    This is probably my favorite routine in the 12 week plan, but can't run it forever!

    It's not the fat loss I'm upset over... I've cut down to a nice BF before... I just could never put on size. Of course, cutting 'feels' like it's compounding the problem because I'm losing weight, 'feeling' weaker, etc.

    I actually have read UD 2.0 but oddly enough, never ran the diet/program. I guess I was always in the middle of a routine (like now) and didn't want to prematurely abandon what I was doing. But yea, I appreciate the offer if you don't mind sending it over. I have no idea where my copy is and would like to read it again... perhaps i'll implement it, if not now, then at the end of my 12 week routine depending on where I'm at. Thx bro!!

    I got it fine, it's only 170K it should go through no problem. Check spam or filters?
    I skimmed the first 3 chapters, it REALLY looks interesting.

    No this is a different book,called the protein book by the same author, thing is it's a large book 140mb and the send limit on Gmail is 25mb, I will have a go at sending it on hotmail when I can get my hands on a PC.

    It appears so... I'm hoping that's revealed after this cut and that it wasn't just a bunch of water and bloating, etc.

    Yes, I got your PM's - I'll address them ASAP but I'm at work so I can only check in on the board intermittently.

    No worries brother, I appreciate you trying. If you recommend it, I'll ask around to see if a local friend has it.

    Weighed in this morning, 204lbs depleted... very happy with that progress, down 2lbs from last week. Actually, I'd prefer 1-1.5lbs/week, 2 might be a bit quick for my comfort but we'll see what next week looks like.

    Starting to see my top 4 abs better... it's only been 2 weeks so that's nothing really. 4 more weeks (midway point) and I'll see if I'm happy with overall progress. Only fcked up part is I'm going to FL sometime in April or May and it's going to cut right into the middle of my cut... 1 week of no training or diet... huge setback but I'll just have to jump right back on when I return.

    Saturday's are hardest for me... home, food/carbs all around, not distracted by work, etc. Less than 24 hours to go now though!

    Keep it up gb.
    Do you supplement with fiber at all. Seems like a good idea especially in a cut.
    Thoughts?

    Sometimes life just gets in the way ... I hope you have a great trip! Enjoy your break, don't think of it as a huge setback!

    Argh, I know what you mean. It's hard to stay away from all the bad things when you don't have a task in front of you!
