    Hey bro my strength is dropping some too while I cut. Like Dragon says, it will return. Taking advantage of the post diet rebound can really help gains so strength can get an even bigger boost when you start to add back

    Thanks for the encouraging words, bro.

    Luckily I was able to keep the strength until the last week of my cut. I am sure my diet and the dropping of the creating play big role in that.

    Week 6 Day 6
    (Shoulder/Traps/Abs)

    Today my brain seem to work on just half the capacity it usually does. I didn't bring my cellphone nor did I bring a towel to the gym. The cellphone part was benine, but what hell was I thinking not brining a towel?! After the shower, I had the pleasure of finding out how long it takes to dry yourself standing under a stationary hair dryer...the answer is 5min.

    Anyways the workout went well again. I left the squats out on Thursday, so I did them today.

    The Workout:

    10min warmup on the eliptical

    Vertical BB Rows
    10x 88lbs
    8x 99lbs
    6x 110lbs
    6x 110lbs

    BB Shrugs
    10x 176lbs
    8x 198lbs
    6x 220lbs
    6x 242lbs

    Squats
    8x 176lbs
    8x 198lbs
    8x 220lbs

    (It's funny how I can shrug more than I squat at this moment)

    Crunches
    3x30

    Leg Lifts
    3x30

    Front Raises
    10x 22lbs
    8x 26lbs
    6x 30lbs
    6x 35lbs

    Lateral Raises
    10x 26lbs
    8x 30lbs
    6x 35lbs
    6x 39lbs

    Weightened Crunch Machine
    16x 143lbs
    12x 158lbs
    10x 174lbs

    Another 17min cardio on the eliptical to finish.

    Nice workout. I would leave the phone home I hate it when I get a call wile working out. But you should keep an extra towel in the car.

    Week 6 Day 7
    (Backlogging)

    Another day of 1 OEP AM/ 1 OEP PM.

    Yesterday was the last* day of my cut. The workout was a simple 60min cardio on the eliptical.

    (*I seem to have messed up twice so I am left with 2 OEP Caps. Those will be used in an additional Bonus workout on Monday.)

    The Results

    Final weigh in: 181lbs
    Starting weight: 194lbs

    Current Bodyfat %: 7.5%
    Starting Bodyfat %: 11.9%


    The Images



    Conclusion

    I lost 13lbs and 4.5%BF in 6 weeks, that makes ~2lbs and 0.75%BF per week.
    In my OP, I stated my goal as 5-6%BF. I knew then I would be very hard to achieve and could only do that with absolute control over what I eat, though I had way more cheat meals during my cut that I should have, yet I have managed to shed a considerable amount of fat.

    The Get up and Go Stack (PES' Alpha-T2 stacked w/ UPS Labs OxyElite Pro) was a great stack providing the energy keep going and have the motivation to hit the gym as hard as you can.

    It's great stack that I can only recommend to people who want to shed fat/weight. Though, Unless I had 2 bottles of each, I would probably prefer to do a 4 week cut instead of a 6 weeker next time.

    Overtime Day 1
    (Bonus Workout)

    Since today I was planning taking a day off from gym, I didn't really have any plan. So I went on and tried one of those all body workouts, I heard so much about.

    So I decided to do a "1 set rep until failure workout".

    I started with 10min cardio on the eliptical to warm up.

    17x 66lbs EZ bar Skull Crushers
    18x 66lbs BB Curls
    17x 154lbs BB Shrugs
    21x 154lbs Squats
    25x 154lbs Deadlifts
    18x 143lbs BB Rows
    24x 165lbs Chest Fly Machine
    44x 127lbs Weightened Crunch Machine
    23x 26lbs DB Lateral Raises

    Another 10min cardio on the eliptical to finish.

    After this it's 10 days of holidays for me.
