    Good grief, that's a serious caloric deficit. I'd be starving all the time!

    Actually, with the IF protocols it is not too bad. I have to maintain discipline for 16 hours, coffee and water helps with that part, then I get to eat pretty well for 8. It's not bad once you get used to it.

    Another fail night deadlifting, **** is really starting to piss me off. Anyways:

    Day 2, wk 3 (MC 11)
    4:45-6:00
    Deads 310x5, 350x3, 380 Got it about 4 inches off the ground-dead. Did get a pointer that I am trying to straighten my torso to soon, need to pull further with my hams and glutes. Well ****, guess we go down to a TM of 390 for next cycle and try to work some hex bar deads in to tweak my form

    Skipped the 5x10 based on the over training theory.

    V bar Pull Down @200 7/6/6

    Snatch Grip Deads 320x4, 275x8/7

    Underhand Low Pulley Row @230x10/8

    Hanging leg raise 20/20 (last 2 were bent knee)

    My traps are to small for my size so I figured I need to start working them a bit more.

    BB Shrug (Focused on full ROM) 230x10, 280x10.

    Not sure where the diet was tonight, stayed in tune with the IF thing, just ate bowl of home made Beef and Noodles when I got home and a grapefruit and am not sure what the nutritional facts were although I am quite confident I did not go much over 2700 cals if at all for the day (was at 2054 183 protein not counting the noodles.)

    You win some and you lose some when it comes to major lifts. Just work on the form, tweak it a bit, and kill it next time!

    That's the point isn't brother, to keep each other motivated?

    Broke fast at a bit before 12:30 today, got caught up in something after the weight room and was not able to get my last few scoops of chilled protein in till around 9:45.

    Day 3, wk 3 MC 11
    5:30-6:25

    Bench 215x5, 240x3, 270x1 (am considering dropping back on my training max, not happy with this at all.)

    Inc DB Press@85's 8/8/6 (better than last week but I hit this earlier in the session this week)

    Flat Bench DB Press @90x5, 80x7

    BW Dips 7/7

    Close Grip Bench 140x10, 150x10/8

    Cross Body DB Ext @30x12/12, 35x8/8

    Underhand Wide Bar Cable PD @150x10/7 (then switched to OH Grip and hit it for another 10)

    Came home and had to push the lawn tractor out front with a flat back tire, then got that running. Will hit cardio tomorrow before work, squats after.

    Dietary for today: 2693cals, (199 carb, 221 protein [plus 18g bcaa], 113 fats) with an estimated burn of just over 4k.

    If you ever feel in the mood for some crazy cardio, tie a rope to your lawn tractor, put it in neutral and pull/push it around the yard. I used to do this as a kid and didn't have access to a drag sled. You probably gotta taste of what that's like with the bit you pushed it.

    Tried to talk my oldest into letting me take his Ford Fusion and pushing it around a parking lot, he respectfully declined

    Rolled out early for a bit of fasted cardio, 28 minutes, 186 cals. I am convinced my damn scale is a liar. Wednesday morning it said I was 262.4, consumbed under 1800 cals that day, Thurdsay it read 265.6 at a lower hydration level. No way in hell I ganed over 3 pounds on less than 1800 cals.

    Hellz ya tg, I'll be over!

    Fed from 12-8, kept it relatively tight today because I am going into my deload week so do not need as many calls. Shortened my rests from 90 sec to about 30-45 to add a bit of intensity.

    Day 1, wk4 (MC11)

    Oh BB Press (5's) @80/100/120

    5x10@50%=100 (all 50 reps)

    Low Pulley upright Row 3x12 @60

    Face Down rear delt raise 2x15@15's

    Alternating DB front raise 2x10@15's

    Seated alternating DB curl 2x10@25's

    Concentration Culr 2x10@20

    Wd Grip Straight Bar Curl 2x8@40

    Upped the intensity on the cardio, higher avg rpm's 35minutes of Random Hills for 267 cals.

    Dietary: 2294 cals (191 carbs, 195 protein, [+18g BCAA] 84 fats) estimated burn of 4000.

    Same here!

    Day 2, wk4 (Deload) Got in , got it done, got moving tonight. 20-45 secs between sets, we were moving along.
    5:05-5:35
    Deads -(x5's) 160, 200, 240 (Really focused on dropping my bottom low and not trying to stand erect to early. Looked tight in the mirror, hope I maintain that when we start getting heavy again.)

    V Bar Pull Down 3x8@100

    Snatch Grip Deads 3x8@140

    Uh Low Pulley Row 2x10@120

    Leg Raise off of bench 2x20

    Again, kept it tight because of the deload, did have to stretch the feed window out a bit (12-9) because of going to visit my mother who just came North from Texas. Anyways: 2102 cals (173 carbs, 234 protein [plus 18g bcaa), 58 fats) with an estimated burn of around 3900.
