SUNDAY FEB 25 (DAY 14)
i look forward to sundays when i measure my weight & waist line before i do early AM cardio before CARB LOAD.
weight today - 225.4 lbs. (down 2lbs from 227.6 lbs - weight last sunday before carb load)
waist line - 41 inches. (down from 41.75 last sunday before carb load)
SO in 2 weeks, ive lost about 5lbs & 2 inches. awesome.
ill carb load today, and tomorrow will definitely be 3-4lbs heavier, but target is to be under 225.4 and 41 inches before carb load next sunday (day 21)

tues feb 29 (Day 16)
German Volume Training. Pull Day. Back & Biceps.
BACK. Dumbell rows
sets 1 - 5. 100lbs dbell . 10reps per side . 50 reps per side total.
sets 6 - 10. 110lbs dbell. 10 reps per side. 50 reps per side total.
BICEPS. Straight Bar Curl.
sets 1 - 3. 50lb bar . 10 reps per set. total 30 reps
sets 4 - 6. 60lb bar . 10 reps per set. total 30 reps
sets 7 - 10. 70lb bar. 10 reps per set. total 40 reps.
started low with straight bar curl as biceps already had a good pump from the 10 sets of dumbell rows.
this is my first week doing GVT (intend to do it for 4 weeks total). Ideally for the whole 10 sets, weight should be same throughout i.e. 50 - 60%
of 1 rep max. I keep on increasing weights as im still trying to gauge what is ideal for me to do in 10 sets while maintaining good strict form.

Sunday. Mar 04. Day 21. Wk 3.
CARB - LOAD DAY.
my bad fellas. screwed up my dates last week as u can see from the above posts.
ANywaz, cardio AM. 1 hr walk on treadmill - moderate to max incline .
weight before carb load = 223.0.
weight last sunday (day 14) before carb load = 225.4
therefore, weight loss wk 3 = 2.3lbs !!
Unfortunately, waistline remains at 41 inches !! damn !!
And a trainer measured my body fat percentage using a hand-held device - measured at 29% !! double damn !!
(i question the accuracy of that device ....... but hey, its gonna get below 20%, 15% then 10%. im not dissapointed.
It is what it is, and just gives me the drive to push even harder but smarter.)
im losing roughly 2 lbs per week since i began the cut; Diet is spot on; so i AM on the right track !!!
Now lets go eat some pancakes !!! (carb load y'all )

That is one hell of a stack, how did I miss this?!
In the excitement I am going to overlook that you are changing the GVT formula which is sacrilegious lol.

Wk 4 . Mon Mar 05 - Sunday Mar 11.
Im just gonna do a summary here of what transpired the past week.
Followed German Volume Training as Week 3
monday/thurs - push. Chest/Shoulders/tris
Tues/Fri - pull. back/bi. added forearms
Weds - quads/calves
Sat - hams/calves
cardio tues - sunday. AM before breakfast. HIIT.
review - stronger in all areas except quads. bummer ! broke a knee high school days so it plays up now n then. i tried to work around
it blasting heavy on leg extensions.
weight sunday morning before carb load - 223lbs. ( no change from last week !!)
waist measurememt before carb load - 40 inches. ( 1 inch down from end of week 3 )
THEREFORE FOR THE FIRST 4 WEEKS ON MY STACK:
wk 1 starting weight = 230 . end wk 4 = 223. Loss of 7 lbs
waist begin wk 1 = 43 inches. end of wk 4 = 40 inches. Loss of 3 inches
GOALS FOR WK 5/6/7/8 :
*Adjust macro. increase protein & lower fat intake even further
*Continue AM cardio and add PM cardio 20 minutes HIIT after weights
*Lose 3 - 4 more inches waistline by end week 8
*Weight - whatever it is by end of wk 8. Losing weight is NOT my priority - LOSING INCHES is ! But a drop in weight would also mean
increased fat thermogenesis. Id love to be 220 at 10% body fat, but priority right now is dropping my waist line to 33 by wk 12 while
maintain muscle mass.
keep ya'll posted.

Don't lower fat too much, especially on a cut and with some pre-existing knee issues. You'll need the extra cushioning from the fats and satiety that they provide as you get deeper into the cut.

WK 1 of the cut kept protein and carbs at same level, but decreased FAT by 100g. from 270 to 170g
WK 2 , P & C same levels, but fat went down further by 50g (450calories) to 120g per day
WK 3 & 4, P & C same, lowered fat by another 50g to 70g a day.
weird that wk 3, i lost about 2lbs but NO change in waist measurement. but Wk 4, weight stayed same at 223 (before carb load weight) but lost an inch waistline.
03-14-2012, 04:59 PM
That's some major weekly caloric reductions. You'll be below your BMR, which is a bad idea to do for an extended period of time. Honestly, I would have stayed at 170g and slightly increased protein and then let the cardio and supplements burn off the fat.
