    Critique redone cutting cycle



    Hopefully this link works but I posted my first diet a couple of weeks ago, and this is just fixed a bit. Lowered protein powders, added extra eggs and more turkey breast, got rid of the apple and tried to put more food in the morning before my workout.

    I'm 88kg 194lbs around 18% bodyfat, currently on prop/mast cycle, training 5 days a week and trying to add 2 x 40min cardio sessions with abs and calves..

    Any help would be much appreciated

    To my understanding masteron only gives a dryer appearance and tends to work best when 12% or under. Don't really think you need it at this stage

    Yeah I sort of realize this now but I've already bought it and half way through so I'm going to keep jabbing it

    Would it be better to drop calories maybe 600 deficit, since on cycle my body should hold the muscle better? I just want the quickest results possible without loosing muscle

    Since you are using gear I believe it should be fine imo to drop calories lower as it will allow you to hold on to muscle mass when cutting. If you can sustain it for a while by all means.

    Hopefully it doesn't affect performance in the gym long term, otherwise good to go. Just wondering, are you taking into account the calories burned from walking into your 2,400 and compensating by eating a bit more? Or are you adding them in as a 'bonus' and still meeting 2,400 through the diet alone, which would lead to a larger deficit. (Moreso for my benefit I would like to know)

    No, I'm not counting the calories burned from walking, as I'm not working at the moment and don't do much exercise or even walking around other than the gym..

    I haven't really seen the results I was hoping for that's why I'm thinking of lowering calories and also adding the cardio..

    I'm not seeming to loose much fat, but maybe even gaining a little bit or muscle, that's the reason.. How much lower should I drop?

    100-150 calories and see how the week goes and re-adjust by another 100 if need be
