    The calorie deficit I am on is still, obviously, affecting me negatively but I am pretty much never hungry. After a bunch of reading around Nutrient Partitioning, I must admit I feel like this is stuff I should have known before. Slow learner as always! It does confirm that my current deficit is 100% needed to be able to pack on new muscle during this coming year. Can't wait to hit 8-10% and start building again.

    1. Snatch - 1-1-1
    1 - 50kg
    2 - 50kg
    3 - 50kg
    NOTE: Tried 60kg today but could not get it up. PR stands at 70kg but that was during that latest insanity bulk.

    2. Snatch Pull
    (105%/2)4 - 80kg

    3. Front Squat - 1-1-1
    1 - 100kg
    2 - 110kg
    3 - 115kg (fail)

    4. Conditioning
    21-15-9
    Squat Snatch - 44kg (Rx was 43kg but 1/2kg weight were in use)
    CTB Pull-Ups
    NOTE: Total time: 14 mins 26 secs (Whiteboard leader: 6 mins 45 secs)

    NOTE: Tried Kratom Green Bali at 4g today instead of my Ibuprofen. I might as well have been drinking water. Completely useless. Going with a different kind tomorrow.

    Yes, that seems needed. Always thought I never needed much of this stuff but apparently, I was wrong.

    Just took 8g of White Bali and report back shortly.

    White Bali at 8g did nothing except making me a bit lightheaded for about 20 minutes and then that disappeared.

    Today it became extremely clear that my nutritional deficit is having a big impact. Maxed of my Clean & Jerk at 60kg and my PR is 85kg. This is very mentally taxing so I am going to switch my eating strategy a bit and use carb cycling for a while to combat this. Hopefully, that will help!

    1. Snatch
    Heavy Single
    50kg

    2. Clean & Jerk
    Heavy Single
    60kg

    3. Front Squat
    60%/2 - 70kg
    70%/2 - 80kg
    75%/2 - 85kg
    80%x2 - 92kg
    (85%x2)3 - 97kg

    4. Conditioning
    AMRAP 18:
    30 Push Jerks - 52kg
    30 BJ (24/20")
    30 Cal Row
    30 T2B
    NOTE: 232 reps (Whiteboard leader - 252 reps)

    5. Stamina Conditioning
    EMOMx4
    Odd: 5 Deadlifts - 102kg
    Even: 5 OHS - 40kg

    *THIS IS A SCHEDULED DELOAD WEEK

    I switched my nutrition 3 days back to 3 low-carb days and then 1 high. I am on my first high day right now. I'll keep doing this for a while. My weight seems to have evened out at 180 lb and has not moved much in a week. Going to leave it alone for another week without changing anything as lowering calories will make me even weaker.

    I feel like my volume over time is going down so not super happy with the training right now. Can not change anything right before open so will have to wait a few weeks.

    1. Power Snatch
    60%/2 - 40kg
    65%/2 - 50kg
    70%/2 - 60kg

    2. Snatch Pull
    (80%/3)3 - 70kg

    3. Back Squat
    (65%/3)3 - 110kg
    NOTE:
    Switched this up and ran 9 reps, 7 reps, 7 reps.

    4. Gymnastics Conditioning
    4x9 Muscle-ups
    Rest 1:00 between sets

    5. Conditioning
    "Jackie"
    1,000m Row
    50 thrusters (45/35#)
    30 Pull-ups
    NOTE: Time 7.31

    Another day another good workout. Having people around you who makes you push harder is exactly what I need I have realized. It makes me push that little bit extra especially in regards to conditioning. For strength, I do not feel the same at all.

    1. Row Conditioning
    1 sets of: 21x200m, :20 rest

    2. Gymnastics Conditioning
    4x18 Kipping HSPU
    Rest 1:00 between sets
    NOTE: I have improved here. Got the first three sets without rest and the last one in 9 and 9.

    3. Barbell Conditioning
    AMRAP 3:
    3 Power Cleans - 60kg
    3 Front Squats
    3 Push Jerks
    Rest 3:00
    NOTE: 30 reps
    AMRAP 3:
    3 Power Cleans - 70kg
    3 Front Squats
    3 Push Jerks
    Rest 3:00
    NOTE: 18 reps
    AMRAP 3:
    3 Power Cleans - 65kg
    3 Front Squats
    3 Push Jerks
    NOTE: 18 reps

    4. Stamina Conditioning
    4RFT:
    21 OHS - 42kg
    12 Bar-Facing Burpees
    NOTE: Time 12.09, had it not been for one of my workout buddies I would never have pushed the last set with 21 OHS in a row only resting while standing.

    Thank you, feeling like a million dollars at the moment :-)

    I am on my standard Test-E 200mg/wk and HGH 1.8IU ED. I am planning a short 6-8 week cycle once I am around 8% body fat as I want to try and use Masteron with Test-P and Anavar .

    General Update

    Almost 1 1/2 years ago I was in a hardcore diet mode. As I was calculating every gram of food trying to slim down my body to the perfect physique. At only 173cm tall (68in) I am not a big guy in general. Being a slow learner unless I have direct experience of things myself I could not see how hardcore dieting at these stats was, well, pretty dumb. At the same time, I had started to look at CrossFit as an alternative to what I was doing. My body type, which is a slimmer build in general, seemed more suited for this kind of sport and 245 days later of CrossFit I know I was right.

    My approach to nutrition has changed somewhat over these past few months. For me, once I got over the insane measuring of food and simply tried growing and working out as hard as I could the results started showing in a much more significant way. It would have been better if I figured this out 7-years ago but it is what it is. I am sure this could have happened in the old gym also, but this fits me better.

    The most significant thing for me is that by working this hard, it allows me to eat much more food so being in a nutritional deficit is not very hard. I am dropping fat by eating 2,500kcal/day, and if I had tried this in the past, it would never have happened. The added benefit here is that my mood is all around good. As hunger and tiredness are kryptonite for my state of mind I am now working around that, and easily.

    I was, of course, also affected by people on this board. Each person needs to find what works for them and why they are doing it. For me, this took a while, but I am finally there, and I am so much better off for it.

    Like Seth Feroce said, "I don't care if you're natty, you're CrossFitter, whatever the fuck Powerlifter, Bodybuilder, whatever it is, it's here to fucking become better. That's the one fucking place you can go to a just uplifting fucking greatness. I do not care if you are a fucking powerlifter, I don't fucking power lift. I've no fucking desire to do it but if I see you pull some fucking wild shit off in the gym, fucking right, get that shit, let's fucking go."

    Back at it today. Testing 1RM on Snatch and CJ was on the schedule. Can't wait to start eating more food to get stronger but this is a necessary evil to be able to do just that. I had way to much fat to be able to effectively grow.

    1. Snatch
    1RM Test - 60kg

    2. Clean & Jerk
    1RM Test - 80kg

    3. Conditioning
    27-21-15-9
    T2B
    Overhead Squats - 60kg
    Over-the-Bar Burpees
    NOTE: I honestly can't believe I pulled off this on Rx weight. Super happy about that one. Ridiculously slow time but hey, I finished!

    4. Stamina Conditioning
    EMOMx10:
    6 Power Cleans 60kg + 6 HSPU
    NOTE: Only got three rounds. No fuel left in the tank, more specifically, forearms.

    I tried the same workout today. Figured I'll chance it a bit and pushed harder in the beginning. I was 2 minutes ahead in the last round from last time but still lost 17 seconds for the final time. One last try on Monday and after that it is what it is :-) I would definitely need a sub 17 minutes time to be competitive in my group and that, will most likely, not happen this year.

    Workout 17.1
    For time:
    10 dumbbell snatches
    15 burpee box jump overs
    20 dumbbell snatches
    15 burpee box jump overs
    30 dumbbell snatches
    15 burpee box jump overs
    40 dumbbell snatches
    15 burpee box jump overs
    50 dumbbell snatches
    15 burpee box jump overs

    Men use 50-lb (22.5kg). dumbbell and 24-in. box

    Time cap: 20 minutes

    Finishing time: 18.57

    Well look what happened :-) Took one day rest, and today I smoked that workout. Well, in comparison with myself that is. It also puts me in clear lead in India, any category, and by far in the master's category. I am now ranked 8 in the ASIA Masters group. BOOM!!!

    New workout released every Friday and then you have 4 days to get the best score possible. Goes for 5-weeks.

    I ran the 17.2 workout today. I surprised even myself by being able to do muscle-ups. Unfortunately, I was completely spent by the time I got to them as I pushed pretty hard to get a good time to 78 reps. I ended up with 82 reps but hoping to improve that on Monday.

    Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 12 minutes of:

    2 rounds of:
    50-ft. weighted walking lunge
    16 toes-to-bars
    8 power cleans

    Then, 2 rounds of:

    50-ft. weighted walking lunge
    16 bar muscle-ups
    8 power cleans

    Etc., alternating between toes-to-bars and bar muscle-ups every 2 rounds.

    Men use 50-lb. dumbbells

    SCORE: 82 reps

    No. You can run HGH by itself.

    Had some people stop by the Box yesterday and took some pictures. I like this one and since it's been a while since I posted any images I figured I'll share this one.
