    Hear lots of people complaining about their joints. My mom has the same problem.

    Very humid weather here too.

    Less humid the last couple days and with the fish oil and the 550 kicking in I think I am already starting to feel a bit better.

    Bettter today still, I am really impressed with this fish oil, the dosing seems low to me but I got immediate results.

    Today was another very strong day, still getting my reps in and it's week 4 of my progression. I felt a bit tired at first but my strength see's me through the first couple exercises and motivates me for the rest of the routine whidh is a tough go with 5 sets per body part if you consider the drops 6 if you include warm ups.

    Size is nujgin futs, I am an absolute beast... holding weight at 204.5 but I am definitely leaning out. Oh and Chris those wide barbell pullups you had me try had an immediate effect.

    I am going to keep about 2 to 3 weeks ahead of my pace from last contest and come in 2 weeks early this time. I am in good shape to do just that.

  7. Wow a lot of positives this week....

    a) Joints are feeling better, fish oil was the missing link... don't know why I stopped using it after I ran out.
    b) I am big and strong I can really see and feel the difference, I am getting a lot of look at that freak looks and a lot of comments about my size.
    c) I really cleaned up a lot abs are starting to pop nicely, I am pretty astounded since I am not really cutting till I start on Saturday. This morning was particularly shocking as here I am looking much leaner with 10 extra lbs on me.

    I am pretty fuggin stoked I have to say. So the plan is to drop to 2600 cals and a carb cycle of 180/120/60 to start. I will keep my fat at around 60 for now as well. No extra carb meals or refeeds planned at this time. This is a see as you go process. I want to try and maintain some of this new size but not at the expense of conditioning. Conditioning always comes first.

    My buddy still can't find the chord for his Camera. I am bringing mine for the next shoot so will have some on Saturday either way. Would be interesting to get those shots he did last week though to see then changes cuz that's when I started to get ird of water, just after those pics were taken.

  8. Ok my diet has been pretty good but maybe not perfect. For instance I ate quite a bit of rice which may not be as good as yams but didn't want to be eating yams all the time as I had some fairly high carbs days. Steve has me thinking maybe I can adjust the micros some to make it more solid. Is par boiled rice a good choice for this point in time or should I be going all yams ?

  10. carb choices are fairly inconsequential at this point doug (at any overall, generally speaking, till things get really finite)..
    brown rice/oats are interchangeable; sweet potatoes of course a little beeter nutritive wise and benefit of no fat at all
    black beans/rice cakes/Ezekiel bread are some other great sources that come to mind..

    I would change that breakfast, quite honestly breakfast & postWO meals are where you will want majority of your carbs when they are low, also a bit more than other feedings even on a high day..of course I will always propose that breakfast should be biggest or among biggest feedings of day
    you may want to look at keto set-up doug, gonna be best for fat-loss, if you want to try to get ahead of the game

    I like the cycle worked really well last time, I get burned out on Keto pretty fast but could be my fat was not high enough, it was a long time ago. I will look at the breakfast meal again thanks. I will redistribute the carbs a bit. This is win win as I work out very early.

  12. yeah when I say keto, I do not mean technical keto w/ hi fats/low carbs/fairly high protein..you do not want your fats high right now at all (in fact I think 60 is too much actually, would like to see 50-55, 55 prolly do for now)
    I refer rather to more of a contest keto, where carbs are under 85g or so daily for 3 days, then a last-meal carb-up (similar to what we did last time, using same meal in fact)..repeat again, going 4 days this time, and start it all over
    best way, bar none, to keep metabolism up and increase fat-loss..drawback is, very tight so is tough to gain any muscle, you better be happy with what you have

  13. Ok about half my carbs for the day will be at breakfast.

    That sounds good actually you hit a chord with that one. 3 days then 4 days under 85 and fats at 50. Oh and I love that meal ... I will look at that for now. I have a lot of mass so maintaining is more the focus. Let me get ahead and we can revisit if I get really far ahead.
    Unremarkable is no way to go through life... Doug

  15. ok I have got something that fits and I can readjust as I go to improve it.
    Unremarkable is no way to go through life... Doug

  16. yeah on that meal day: you can either add the meal in, or replace last feeding of day with it..depends on how lean you are/how aggressive you want to get/most importantly how many cals total you are working with on those reg days
    the idea right now is not to jump into madness w/ low-level intake..rather, find the caloric level that suits your personal metabolism, pushing the border of almost overdieting but not quite, while allowing yourself room to maneuver everything downward at set intervals to keep progress going strong as you drop to where you want to be
    this is the detailed, micro-managed approach I have embraced thruout my own prep to this point..not worrieds about growing per se - that will happen yet at the end tho, I am confident

    Yah I am thinking 2600 cals and add in the meal at the end of the day like I did before.

  18. Great workout, it had all the perks, pace, power and of course pain I can really feel the muscles have been trashed. Weighed in today at just under 203 so I am already in a bit of a recomp at 2800 cals. The official cutting starts tomorrow.

    lol I am so trashed

  19. Sounds good and can't wait to see the pics. Hope you can hold on to your size even more this time around. No firefighting lose the fat now and see what you have to work with at the end. This is the same thing I am doing although just a minor difference on macros. I won't confuse the issue discussing them as Snags has you on a very nice plan!

    Yah I am stoked about the fast start plan, don't get me wrong I am pretty lean but I want shredded and I want to be there early like Steve and what you're planning. Then I think I can get some size back in those 2 weeks with the slow carb up.

    very slow carb up, if you happen to make it to where you need to be by ~2 week out mark
    depending on where you are at that point calorically, you may need to stay in same cals, but you'll tweak the macros (slightly, then gradually more & more) towards higher carbs/lower protein while keeping fat low
    you will look pretty much like you will look final, at 2-week out mark - just more solidified, drier, and so appear bigger & fuller at the end..this will allow you to avoid the water/sodium manipulation (which is hit or miss anyway), and the drastic shift from no carbs to full-on carb smash day before etc
    unless you are on certain anabolics in that period, very unlikely you will add any definitive size, at reduced caloric intake

    Fuller and drier is good. I will be on mild stuff but nothing really that will add size, just there to prevent loss of size.

    Can u elaborate on the fats as to why 50 not 60? Just trying to learn snags. I can't remember how far out doug is but I'm here to learn. Feel free to pm me or email so we don't cluster this thread up.

    that's alright, doug doesn't mind, he likes clutter
    but - I actually said 55 at high end, but 50 will work too and really prolly preferable simply due to his bodytype/metabolism, and the fact in order to dry out (and maybe get the benefit of some skin tightening in the process) while getting ahead of the pace here (he is behind if wanting to structure in best manner in order to be ready 2 weeks out), he is going to have to be very aggressive for awhile
    when he does get ahead, fats will remain static or even drop slightly, while he lowers protein and brings more (good complex) carbs into play while staying in same caloric intake level
    that is my thought process anyway..feel pretty good about it for him, and very similar to what I have done except ratio of carbs to protein has been higher for me, but fats have still been low entire time

    This is actually what I was thinking about myself. Referring to lower fats. I feel I'm kinda sensitive as far as body comp goes. When my fats get too high I look softer or not tight. I could be way off base, but the more I play with carbs makes me realize I'm not as "carb sensitive" as I thought. I sure feel better on higher fats for obvious reasons.
    It's hard to get a solid idea tbh tho as I'm not as consistent with my foods right now. I really struggle with tightening things up in the summer especially after such a hard (restrictive) prep I had.
    All I know is that low fats (<25g) and low low carbs is a bad combo. Flat as hell haha.
