  2. Thanks to both Josh and Rosie on some cardio education. Made up for missing last night with 35 minutes of variable resistance cardio (60/80/100% then back down) this morning: 250 cals. Was really due for some HIIT last night but did not want to go that route with Deadlifts coming tonight.

  3. 5/24/11
    Day 2, wk 10
    4:50 pm to 6:05 pm
    Duration: 1:15

    Dead lifts 295 – 8, 325 – 6, 350 – 4, 365 – 2.
    Tried 385 twice, got it off the ground both times,
    Could not lock it out. (does not include warm up sets)
    Belt only with 350 or above.

    Hack Squat - 320 -8/8. 340 – 8, 350 -8

    Back Hyper extension (w/65# dumbbell) 12/12/12

    Leg Press – 550 -10/10/10
    Good and deep with no push from hands.

    Standing calf extension – 140 – 15/15/12 (Good full ROM)

    dietary info for today: 2524cals in (94 {minus 21 fiber} =73 carbs, 241 protein, 128 fats) with an estimated burn of 4500 for a deficit of 1976.

    Tomorrow AM, tale of the tape!

    Subjective observations: Aggression was very good tonight as was confidence. I had no doubt that I would hit 385 when I plated it up that it really pissed me off when I could not lock it out.

    Energy continues to be good, libido is also (almost too good still). Continue to get the ass kicking cardio endurance I experienced with the Wyked during my log.

    Also, came to a realization: I am in fact a stim junkie. Started this day with 2 A T2, 4 cups of coffee, a mix of Lit Up and AI's Maniac and 2 AI Motivate (from their sample packs they sent out). Was not geeked but very driven, and it showed in my pace with the cardio work. Did feel a bit of a crash in the afternoon, but nothing that one more Alpha T-2 and 3 scoops of Wyked could not tackle. Guess given my history of addiction, it should not surprise me that I enjoy natural stims a bit too much.

    Thanks Rosie. Nice to see you are following along also

    Today was pretty quiet, late day at work, took some time this morning to reconnect with the wife while the kids were at school. It was worth missing some cardio time for.

    Dietary for today may be a bit off as some one brought in a platter with summer sausage and various cheeses, I did include estimates in today's totals.

    Estimated intake: 2479 (a bit over target) (92 [minus 20 fiber]= 72 carbs, 217 protein, 136 fats) with an estimated burn of 3555 for a deficit of 1076.

    Tomorrow is upper body and cardio day. May split into AM/PM sessions not sure. PM will count on rain as my youngest is scheduled for a ball game but we have had bad storms with more in the forecast.

    Not sure if it is the coming off of a deload, the increased cardio/focus on cutting or just one of those days, but seem to be losing some ground on my bench work and OH Presses. I have been plateaued basically benching for a while now, but to loose ground on my OH Press is unusual, Suppose it could also be a shoulder issue as I have noted a return of my right arm lagging behind my left on press work lately and can feel some popping and grinding in the right one.

    Dietary for today: 2554 cals (110 [minus 22 fiber] = 88 carbs, 226 protein, 143 fats) with an estimated burn of 4525 for a deficit of 1981.

  16. Pretty quiet day today. Went to the Memorial Day Services this morning, my wee guy is in scouts. 43 years old and I still tear up with Taps and the 21 gun salute, likely always will. Got home and took a 25 minute bike ride in semi hilly terrain. Did this on my Mom's Huffy, LOL, not exactly a performance piece of equipment, but screw it, it was cardio worth about 400+ cals. and it is the only bike I have at this time.
    Then I spent some time teaching my 8year old how to ride his bike. He did pretty well, got to the turn around circle at the end of our cul-de sac and stopped because he did not think he was "ready for that 6 turn" (Meaning the turn around cirle) Spent abou 1.5 hrs total doing that, has to be worth a few cals and definately a life time of memories.

    Anyways,got done with that and grilled up some Sirloins.

    Dietary for today:2038 cals in (90 [minus 17 fiber] = 83 carbs, 208 protein, 91 fats) with an estimated burn of 3750 (bike riding lessons excluded) for a deficit of 1712. Tomorrow we have DEADLIFTS INC. I excited for this as I got 385 about 4-6 inches off the floor last week but could not lock it out. Would be the best DL since I pulled my hammy, anticipating it is going to go well.

  20. We are just short of 3 weeks into this stack. So far, I have not really seen any major strength increases, conversely, I have not really noted any loss of it either and I guess with some of the deficits I have been running, that is a good thing. Tommorow marks day 20, so I think I am gonna bump the Ecdy to 100mg (split into 2 50mg doses) to see what that does for us starting Friday 6/3/11.

    I have been leaning out nicely, current estimates put me at around 17% bf, down from 19. Am certainly pleased with this, but not satisfied by any means, MUST KEEP PUSHING!

    Flat BB Bench 240-4, 245-3/3/3, 225-6
    (Ok, this is really pissing me off, not only have I plateued at benching, but I am sliding backwards. I don't think it is because I am cutting as I am seeing progress in other lifts. I use a middle finger on the smooth band grip width, but I noticed I like to move it out to my index finger when the bar starts to feel heavy. Maybe I am bringing my delts into it too much and need to go a bit narrower. I am considering switching to a 5/3/1 strength training routine because even though I am cutting that is my mentality and motivation. If anyone has any input, I would gladly hear it.)

    Cutting does not have to mean any strength losses.

    Perhaps you are using your triceps more, not your delts - make sure that you use a shoulder-width or slightly wider than shoulder-width grip. Otherwise, consider changing up your chest exercise and using dumbbells, or doing incline presses, push-ups, etc. to give your body a break, and go back to flat bench in a week or two.

    Got home and found that my mother the bargain hunter had picked me up a garage sale 18 speed bike for my birthday (6/21). Adjusted the seat and took a little spin, much more comfortable than that old Schwinn single speed I rode last weekend.

    Tomorrow is the end of Primordial's 28 day cut contest Although not "cut" per se, I am pleased with the overall result and progress. After my wife takes pics I am gonna have my first cheat in about 30 days.
