    I've been higher and I am back on my game now! On that note, I only have one thing to say... "Consistency... consistency... consistency!!!"

    Don't make me make another video... Bahahahahaha!

    You do make a solid video haha. I am already falling into a good groove here with the nutrition and training. Everything feels...right. Macros and calories are on point and I know that I respond well to Kleens iron warrior so from here on...yeah consistency will be key. I have my parents coming in this weekend and then again next weekend (divorce) so it will prove challenging, but nothing I can't handle...I'm actually looking forward to flexing my will power.

    Honestly... I would not try to flex too hard, sometimes that can cause you to fall off and do worse than just giving yourself one really awesome blow-out meal with your parents each weekend, but just keep it to one meal, but within that meal... don't hold back, anything goes, get all those cravings outta there, whatever you can pack in, in one sitting is free game, remember, your body can only absorb/store so much fat in one sitting. Besides, if you are anything like me... after a hard-core cheat, I am usually eager to go back to my diet so I can feel normal (not bloated) again!!!

    BTW... the above ^^^ is my opinion, I'm sure not everyone will agree with me, but it has served me well in the past!

    Probably a good idea especially considering that my carbs are pretty low. I may need a good refeed once a week to pick my self back up. Yeah after a cheat I drive myself so mad with guilt that I tend to bounce straight back into the game. I hate the bloated feeling not to mention the flat look and my clothes not fitting the way I want.

    Thats sounds INSANE, but at the same time pretty awesome. Were these anything goes carbs or clean carbs? I read the 4 hour body not too long ago, and that sounds very similar to one of the philosophies used during the protocol.

    I must say that only 2.5 days in and my hunger has dramatically increased. I have become so accustom to my LG protocol that I didnt even think about eating until 1300hr now its all I can do to not tear up some food before the window opens...thank god for flavored branched chains.

    High glycemic carbs for the most part, tons of sugars, need to keep the fat low though. Kids cereals become a main source...

    Finally I have tried to read this bad boy and sub since yesterday. I get almost done reading it and start getting the database errors. Great read so far, hope thoe calories work well for you. I have a feeling they shouldn't be too bad at all. I have been running 1800-2800 recently and doing pretty well. We are about the same size right now. Oh yeah I just don't think you are just under 20% If so you hold it extremely extremely well.

    Glad you got in despite the errors in the database. I usually do well with calories similar to what you use so I'm hoping this works out. As for holding that weight...yes I do mask my true fat self well lol. Its actually gotten me into trouble as many years ago I was extremely overweight and unhealthy as all hell, yet I appeared just to be big so to speak. Needless to say I came to the realization that if I continued on that path I would be ending my life prematurely. With all that said...Let's do work and return to glory!! Thanks again for popping in bro.

    Day 3

    550-XD and 3 Multi-V caps at 0645hrs. I am definitely feeling a noticeable increase in hunger as during my third block class (starts at 1111hrs) I was pretty much ravenous. I did damage on my fast breaker at 1300hrs putting down 918 calories. I have to say the RecoverPro got me through the day...just kept sipping away waiting for the lunch bell to ring (I teach high school visual arts for those who don't know). hit the gym for workout two of the Iron Warrior again keeping a good pace and sweating like a mad man. My thirst is definitely on the up as two gallons of H20 is becoming no problem to take down...Im just damn thirsty! Im finding it tough to get those extra calories down but Im managing putting down 1,338 calories post workout along with dose two of 550-XD. I will finish out the day with another 266 calories and one cap of PCT Black before bed.

    Training

    Workout 2 Reps Weight Reps Weight Reps Weight Reps Weight
    Chins 8 15lbs 8 15lbs 6 10lbs 5 5lbs
    Decline Bench 8 195lbs 8 195lbs 7 175lbs 5 145lbs
    DB Upright Row 8 45lbs 8 45lbs 8 35lbs 8 25lbs
    T-Cups 8 10lbs 8 10lbs 6 5lbs 6 2.5lbs
    Squat 8 225lbs 8 225lbs 8 195lbs 8 175lbs
    Stiff Leg Deads 8 295lbs 8 295lbs 6 275lbs 6 225lbs
    I am working on increasing weight slowly as not to cause any unnecessary injury also focusing on fully contracting the muscle groups being worked. I will increase the weight on DB Uprights next week, and also drop some weight on the Stiff Legs. I was damn breathless at the end of the Stiff Leg Deads, and absolutely drenched in sweat. I did a 10 minute warm up on the treadmill before lifting (walking @ 3.2mph)

    Those Stiff leg deads are impressive man, considering your just bouncing back into it that's a sick start!

    Day 4

    550-XD and 3 Multi-V caps at 0645hrs. I did some light cardio and abs today and took dose two of 550-XD around 1645hrs. I will be taking one cap of PCT Black before bed. No change in noticeable sides or effects from 550-XD as of now besides the increase in hunger and thirst, and the increase appetite. I went a little over my calories today (+200), and I am not to pleased with myself about it. I may throw in a little extra cardio tomorrow post-lift to make up for it. I am getting excited to see how week ones hard work has paid off.

    Training
    30 minutes elliptical @ medium resistance

    DB Side Bends 3x15 @ 40lbs

    Stability Ball Crunches 3x20

    Stability Ball Crunches (alternating cross elbow to knee) 3x15 (both sides is one rep)

    I really want to get as much ab work in as possible without over training as my abs always lag behind my other muscle groups (more noticeable at lower BF%)

    Yeah that is some good stuff. I actually prefer hyperfit over crossfit less of a beat down on the joints. I may have to start doing some high intensity ish to keep up with these calories! I have to say that I am having no problem staying satiated...actually I feel over stuffed right now haha.

    I wouldn't worry too much about the calories being up by 200, you are going to experience an increase in protein synthesis and calorie burning while on cycle so I am not so sure you shouldn't be 3200 2200 anyway.

    Oh if you do go to 3200 2200 just drop back down to 3000 2000 right after cycle, if I keep the save cals for too long into PCT it turns on me right quick.

    Just watch your body comp very closely, when you go into pct watch closer. Gets really tricky...

    Day 5

    Had a different schedule today. Got my lift in early because we had to travel to my brothers place 4 hours away. Hit workout 3 at 0900. I had a great training session today. I feel I am doing a great job with focusing on the muscle group being worked. I didnt get the calories I needed today due to the hectic schedule, but I stayed in my feeding window and had decent macros. Supplementation stays the same, and I am begining to see some results (in the mirror). I will have weight and body fat updates on monday.

    Training

    Workout 3 Reps Weight Reps Weight Reps Weight Reps Weight

    This was a great session today I feel that the weights I chose were near perfect. I hit my reps range perfectly failing between 6-8. I know that the numbers arent high, but the focus and attention to muscle groups is spot on.

    I should have had more carbs than fats today, but I was very limited due to traveling. Hope to get right tomorrow.

    Day 6

    Dosed 550-XD as usual. I forgot to bring my RecoverPro, but used some of my brothers universal bcaa caps. I followed Doc's recommendation of just eating one large blow out meal with the family. We went to an Irish pub and had some Irish Nachos with grilled chicken and a chicken bacon wrap. Needles to say I am still stuffed and eager to get back to my normal nutrition. I'm thinking I probably had somewhere around 4,000 calories today possibly more. I still followed my 16/8 feeding window. I will have to be careful tomorrow to stay inside my macros which will be challenging because mom is cooking Easter dinner. I don't foresee any issues with this also I'd like to get some kind of cardio in tomorrow.

    Yah the extended fast and one meal is how i handle these situations and then when I start eating I try and fill up on protein and veg as much as possilble before I hit the carbs. This actually stuff from the lean gains site it's gold in these situations and I will employ it again today. I will also do some fasted cardio to prepare. It's a great way to go about it, you can enjoy yourself guilt free ...

    Those big meals will put your mind at rest so you aren't in temptation all the time and at times your body even needs those extra nutrients! Especially since you are on 550XD, Coming along nicely sir lovin this log!
    I hope everybody thinks i'm crazy, because you cannot be a sane person and go through the type of pain i am willing to put myself through to be where i want to be, Once I completely win the war between my mind and body, my reign will begin. ~Me

    Thanks Tiny, thankfully this is just one in a long while that my patents come to see me so the temptation is only here while they're here! Not that I don't like that they come down to see us but they don't really understand the whole Lean Gains approach and are constantly asking if I want something to eat lol. This morning I got to watch everybody eat eggs bacon toast and jalapeño cheese grits. Not that this was something I just had to have, but it's amazing how much the mind thinks it wants food when it is right in front of your face! I held out then tore up a whole rotisserie chicken (no skin) at 1300hr. Yeah boy! Tomorrow back to the gym baby also stepping on the scale and checking BF%

    It's cool they know that I do my own thing. No worries. It's not like they aren't going to eat just because I choose to do things the unconventional way.

    Day 7

    Another day with family. Heading back home tomorrow am and going right to the gym...I can't wait! I did ok today getting in 2800 calories. My macros could have been better, but considering the circumstances not bad. I will check BF% and weight tomorrow. I'm sure I'll be holding on to some water and I appear to be puffy right now. I plan to hit the gym hard this week maybe throw in some hyperfit sessions to battle the intake from this weekend. My dad is coming next weekend, but he is more health oriented if you will meaning he is a regular in the gym and understands nutritional needs. Hopefully it will prove to be a better weekend. After this I see no more hurdles to stand between me and my goals.
