    I did Legs and some Chest today. All in all, it felt pretty good. Been doing some extra chest for a while as that is a body part that is lagging a bit. Will only do lifting for this week and then start adding back the rest of the stuff during next week if all is feeling Ok. Hopefully, I will be in all full swing by mid-february. Only a few more days until my diet is locked in and I am truly looking forward to that one. Last year I looked good, this year I am going to look really good and hopefully, have better success.

    Only about a month left until my next round of Tren -A if all blood tests look good. Man, what a year this is thus far. Company going well, training going well, I feel well (with some small hiccups), and most importantly, my daughter and wife is well.

    Did back today and some 30 minutes on the elliptical. Still easing my way back into the heavier load that will start ramping up next week. Not 100% yet but starting to feel much more alert.

    Sunday morning and I decided to get started on the new food plan today. I am impressed by a lot of guys who can simply wing it and be successful. That simply do not work for me. The staph infection is pretty much gone so I should be able to add some more workouts tomorrow. I now have another pain in my arm, this is not my tennis elbow and starting to wonder if this will be the year of injury? Well, as we all know, injury or not the sun will still go up tomorrow and life goes on so just have to work around it. I am going to try and post every single day from now on and I am going to give this HIT training another go, gave up way to soon on it the last time but I am quite inspired by krugerrs log. Got about 9 months before I got to be ready and darn it, I am well ahead of time in planning this one :-)

    Food choice is not relevant in terms of taste, how you cook it, however, will make a huge difference.

    The lower arms need way more strength so gone are any type of wrist wraps, but right one is worse so being very careful. Found a way to workout Bicep/Tricep in a light way so it does not hurt so doing that for now. Of course, that section of the arms get a workout almost all the time so not that hung up on it.

    Wife surprised me with a trip this weekend so diet was pretty much out the window. First trip in a long time though so it was well worth the setback.

    Yes, I don't work my bis and tris as hard as I once did because you are already working them in rows and chest presses

    I need to do some more work on my extensor muscles in my forearm and some more stretching. Also, look into ASTYM , it is basically taking a hard piece of plastic or better knife and rubbing oil/cocoa butter and digging in and tracing your muscles. It helps break up the scar tissue and promotes healing from new blood/platelets to the area

    Note: Had a bit of a problem consuming enough food yesterday. Just not that hungry. I have cut my total consumption with 100 calories/day so I am down to 2900 kcal/day. Slow and steady. Will NOT reduce again for at least a few more weeks. Slow and steady!

    Overall I am starting to feel pretty amazing. One very notable thing is that the gains I made during my last 8-week blast have been maintained and I have in fact increased my lifts somewhat since stopping the blast. It is very clear that this is due to the diet I am maintaining. Not that it needs to be said but all these big ****ers on this site are all correct, diet is 80-90% or the compounds will be wasted.

    Here is an updated picture of my calfs. I selected to show those as it looks the best at this time

    Nice tribute to diet!

    I must must must read this log from start to finish. I have embraced the more fat, less carb approach but struggle with the right amount of fat. Too much fat and I can put on some unwanted / undesired pounds.

    You have found a sweet spot!

    Elbows are doing good. Right side still needs a few weeks to heal but I am going slow when using it. Mostly angry about not being able to, unrestricted, lift my daughter when playing.

    Yes, diet is going pretty darn well at this time I must say. Could not be happier.

    Eating more than I should. Clean foods but more than I need. Weight is staying steady so that is good but I got only 9 more days of experimentation and then it is for real.

    Ran, unintentionally, a bit low on calories. I have also switched, since Sunday, to eat no carbs until after 1 pm. No clue if that will do anything, I am extremely sceptical of the claims made but I am for sure going to try it. Got 6 days to go until I start Tren -A again and also that is when I will start a very slow cut. I will keep it at no less than 2700-2800 kcal for some time. Think I'll start counting new days from then.

    I am noticing that I am losing fat, very small amounts but my composition is changing for sure. What is remarkable is that my weight is staying the same thus far.

    CUTTING START

    The time is here, March 1, and I am starting my cut. This is a slow process and as far as I have been able to figure out eating at 2,700 calories will put me between 90-300 calorie deficit depending on the food consumed. I am noticing body composition changes so no need to rush things and I got 7 months to complete this project at this point. Might as well go slow and steady instead of doing it the insane way as I did last year.

    Started Tren-A today again as part of my rotation and that seems to take about 7-14 days to start having an effect on me so we shall see what is does this second round. Still on HGH and Test-E as I have been for a while now.

    Starting stats:
    84.8 kg or 186.9 lb
