So this is going to be my first EVER cut cycle and my main cutting supplements are USP labs:
w/ Bulk supercissus for maintence
Ive been cutting for 2 weeks and working out the kinks of it all. BUT with the help of:
Snagency, DreamWeaver, MrKLEEN73 and Andrew732
I have been able to design a diet....without them i would be making huge...HUGE...mistakes.
The diet as of now:
Caloric intake: 2400 kcal a day
Progression: drop between 50-100 calories a week
End goal for caloric intake for final 1-2 weeks:1850-1900 kcal
Protein: over 200 grams a day (can go up to 300)
Fat: Start at around 90-110 a day and slowly drop over time (will end up around 50-60)
Carb intake- 40-170 grams a day
Low carb days: 40-60 grams
Mod carb days: 80-100
High carb spike: 150-170
Low carb days are when i only exercise once that day: Moderate carbs are when i hit a two-a-day (walking in the morning and lifting at night)
High carb days:
weeks 1-3: every 3rd day
weeks 4-7: every 3rd and 4th day
week 8-9: every 5th day
red meat (beef, steak)
eggs and egg whites
fish ( tuna, salmon, tilapia)
whole grain pasta
fiber bars (when in a rush)
1 bottle AP : before carbs and fasted cardio
1 bottle (after im done with AP im gonna compare)
Recreate: 4 pills a day
Vat Attack: 3 grams a day (may go up to 6 but i doubt it)
SuperCissus Rx bulk: 3-4 grams a day
multi: 2 a day
:2-3 a day
Resveratrol:1 a day bed
For workout boost:
Thank you controlled LABS!
M: fasted light cardio am/ lift pm
T: hard lift
W: high intensity cardio
TH: fasted light cardio am/ lift pm
F: hard lift
SAT: high intensity cardio
light cardio- 30-40 minutes brisk walk
HIC: anabolic cardio
So this is what after two weeks of experimenting I have decided to follow through with.
The first week was craptacular but i was able to drop from 200's to 197. The second week im now floatined between 193-196 depending on how much i eat.
Starting weight: average 197 at 12% body fat
Goal: 180-185 at 6-7% bodyfat
Most importanlty maintain strength for next strength cycle.
My goals for lifts:
Bench: 315-325 for 3 sets of 10 with 2 minute rest intervals
Squat: 405 for 4 sets of 10 with 2 minute rest intervals
Deadlift: 405 for 4 sets of 10 no wraps 2 minute rest intervals
Standing OverHead press: 185 3 sets of 10, 2 minute rest intervals
As you can see im not going for heavy weight rather I'm focusing on intensity and rest periods. My train of thought is if i can play with these numbers, it will set up a strong foundation for my next powerlifting routine, while giving my joints time to heal.
This routine will run for 8-10 weeks hopefully.
