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.M.Ed. Ex Phys

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.

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.
