    4 weeks cutting progress


    i've been cutting for for 4 weeks now and i've shed about 8 lbs.. i'm trying to get to single digit bf... i think i'm going to cut for 4-6 more weeks and after that.. i cant take it anymore... the first pic is at 188lbs in the morning.. the second is at 181 at night.. (wish i would have taken one in the mornin so i would have been leaner)

    tell any difference or too soon? sorry for the different lighting

    Keep it up. No need to change gameplans completely since doing well with carbs. I might suggest carb cycling. Do two days at 150. 2 at 100. 3 at 50g. Then do pizza night after 3 low carb days in a row.

    Carb cycling and CKD are not the same thing.

    Good stuff man. Threads like these get my motivation mojo going. At least I'm not the only one wishing I had a quart of frozen custard and an XL meat lovers pizza! I think I just might turn into a chicken with fins. Then where'd I be? Keep it up man.

    What are your plans after the cut?

    thanks for the motivation fellas..

    well i started at 135 at age 16.. at age 20 i was 185 or so and then i had a bad back injury from nerve damage that made me completely quit for 13 months. i dropped down to 155lbs while increasing my bf.. DAMN.. haha

    it took me a year to get to about 185 and then from there i bulked to a fat 200, improperly cut to 180.. and then bulked to the 188 u see at the top..

    complicated i know but i felt i needed to explain

    after the cut i plan to slowly introduce carbs back into my body (i've began carb cycling recently) and try to put on a somewhat slow 5 lbs.

    after that i'm debating on either a hdrol or mdrol cycle..

    for the record i've taken hdrol and havoc once but due to school and stress i only put on about 5 lbs TOTAL between them (wasted)

    i cant get over the progress u made dude

    And that diet you have is spot on....i found myself hitting something up very similar to that during a recent cut and it worked very well for me save i ate far less carbs and about 4-5 meals plus 2 shakes.

    The big difference is the amount of cardio u do and the split, i focus a lot on strength so i do cardio no more then 3 days a week and 2x a day. So im wondering how much overall strength you lose after such a strict cut?

    i actually haven't lost much strength at all.. initially i lost a little.. but the other day i still threw up 90lb db's on incline 9 times,,, and 95s 4 times... i used to get 100's 5 times... so not a huge difference seein how i've only began lifting as heavy as i can the last 3-4 weeks (shoulder)

    i have lost a good bit of strength on incline barbell.. used to throw 225 up about 7 times (12 when i was at 203lbs) and now i'm hittin it about 4-5 times


    i've changed up my diet a bit... last week i lowered the carbs to about 80 per day and this past week i've tried carb cycling.. which i need help on the diet if anyone can lend a helping hand.. here's the link to that thread last 3 weeks of diet.. HELP ME OUT

    It helps to stay in ketosis for 2 weeks at the beginning in order to really get your body in the mode of burning fat. I don't know how that fits with your cutting time line.

    And some hardcore people just stay in ketosis for a long time and not do a carb up.

    so my time frame starts from the moment i get into ketosis? or when i start my low carb..

    i was really hoping to be able to carb up this next weekend.. HUGE family deal at my parents' house in TN.. havent' seen everyone since august and i was wantin to eat carbs.. that would have been around 10 days from my first low carb day so i thought it was timed well.. should i definitely not do that?

    That should be fine. 2 weeks from elimination of carbs. Since you aren't in competition mode, have a ball at the get together. Now if you are like me, about 400 g 0f carbs and I start to get a headache and feel like crap. Usually I eat junk anyway and too much sweets. Some guys try to pound 1000-1200g of carbs over a day and a half, but that didn't work out toowell for me.

    Nice work! I hope I look anywhere near that shredded after my cutting session. I am not happy with my size so I will be carb cycling. I am also taking something to control my insulin and absorption which should help. It will also throw me into ketosis much faster.

    well.. i thought i'd cut for one more week.. but i'm starting mdrol in 2 weeks and i want to allow a 2 week transition so my body doesn't flip out from being on keto

    both pics are were taken in the morning, so zero pump... the "after" pic is completely carb depleted so i'm flat as hell. not as much of a change as i wanted but i think it went decent


    remember this is 8 weeks of cutting
