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

Week 6 Day 5
I did another straight 60min cardio session on the eliptical.
Burned around 830kcals.
Week 6 Day 6
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.
10min warmup on the eliptical
Vertical BB Rows
(It's funny how I can shrug more than I squat at this moment)
Weightened Crunch Machine
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.
I will work for supplements!
Week 6 Day 7
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.)
Final weigh in: 181lbs
Starting weight: 194lbs
Current Bodyfat %: 7.5%
Starting Bodyfat %: 11.9%
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' stacked w/ UPS Labs ) 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
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.

I will work for supplements!
