If I can get there that means I'll have gained 5lbs of lean mass since last year. So by my calculations, using a 1.4 activity multiplier (since I'll be doing low intensity cardio after w/o's and HIIT twice a week on off days), I'll be taking in 2100-2500 cals depending on what calculations are used. So as I said, I'll start at 2500 cals and work from there. This week I didn't quite get there...I'm finding it hard to switch from bulk mind-set to cut lol. But this weekend the wife and I are vacationing over the weekend so I let that be my last hoorah and get disciplined starting Monday. :-D

    So I've been reading some more on the macros people use, but there's so many "scientific" versions of what macros should be...I read that you should take in 40% calories in fats 1/3 of each kind (sat, poly, mono) in order to keep hormone regulation optimal. That just seems like a lot to me. If I do that and keep 1g/lb protein, my macros would be 35/25/40 or 191/137/97 in grams (protein, carbs, fats respectively) @ 2187 kcal/day. But I've also read that you should take in 1.5xBW in protein when cutting...that would make it 50/10/40 which is more like a keto diet, which has been VERY debateable as to it's effectiveness and just health-related issues in general.

    So I guess I'd like to know what you guys think since you've been in this with me and the advice/support you've given me so far has definitely benefited my progress. As always...THANKS!
    There is SO much information and differing recommendations out there. The bottom line is it's all individual. Among my diet clients who are looking to drop fat, their calories, cardio, and macronutrients vary quite a bit. It's all about trial and error and finding out what works for you. A good place to start is to try one particular dietary method for this cut, another for your next, and after a while you will learn what techniques work for you and be able to develop your own method, created by you for you.

    Yeah, I noticed you're doing carb-cycling to bulk...if you were to cut would you just keep your intake the same as what you take on off days? I'm looking at going 1.75g/BW for protein (338g/56%), keeping fat at 20% of BW (58g/21%), and the rest in carbs (138g/38%)...this puts me at 2423 kcal/day. Most carbs will be in my first PoWO meal and the rest spread evenly throughout (I'll post a more detailed meal plan once I get it figured out). I'm also going to stick with the Wendler's w/o with the high rep assistance work since that gives me the best of both worlds.

    That sounds decently balanced. Give it a shot and see what happens! Maybe throw in a refeed or carb based cheat meal once per week.

    Yeah on my diet if I were cutting I would reduce carbs on non lifting days by 50g or so and up my protein intake. On training days I would train fasted besides whey/BCAA and get most of my carbs post workout. Probably reduce carbs on those days by 25g. That's just what works for me tho.

  6. So after my weekend getaway with the wife, I weighed in at 195.4lbs. Monday was leg day:

    Squats
    170x5
    195x5
    220x5

    Lying Leg curls
    140x12
    140x12
    140x10

    Seated calf raise
    110x12x3

    Leg Extensions
    150x10

    Didn't get my last 2 sets in because I ran out of time. But legs have been nice and sore the last couple days.

  7. I was off yesterday and didn't get a lot of calories because we did a lot of running around. Today was chest day and I'm going to be very strict on sticking to my diet.

    Flat Bench Press
    135x5
    155x5
    175x5
    *These felt petty easy so I focused on exploding up on each rep.

    Incline DB Fly
    45x12
    45x10
    45x8

    HS decline press
    230x10 (RoM felt too low so I adjusted the seat so the handles were level with my chest)
    180x10
    180x10

    Cable lower chest raise
    60x10
    60x8
    40x12

    Dips
    BWx9
    BWx7
    BWx7

    Felt extremely pumped up after my workout. Can't wait to get my BF% down so I can see how much my body has changed since last year.

    Still gets me going in the mornings...which is hard to do with getting up at 5am. Not only that but in the gym I just want to keep going. Like today, typically I only do 2-3 accessory exercises but I had the time so I did a couple more. I don't crash at any point during the day, either. So, yeah...I'm loving it! I've been using the Cherry Limeade which isn't bad, but I'm excited to try the Fruit flavor I just got lol.

    Looks like the log starts in November. I'll check it out. Progress over a 4 month period should be noticeable.

    Yeah it was always awesome for my morning workouts. I really dig ConDense too. It's got a different feel then MM but I like it just as much. More focus for me. Also is a great alternative when cycling off of 1,3.

    Hmm...am I supposed to cycle off MM at some point? I know some people will because they lose the stim affects, but is there another reason I need to worry about it?
    Where it all started

    http://anabolicminds.com/forum/35-older/217572-one-can-never.html

  14. Nah no other reason then some people build a tolerance up and don't get the initial big kick like they do when they first start it. Its like any other stimulant in that regard. Condense is a great alternative because at 2 scoops you actually get 400mg of caffeine so u don't lose any kick compared to 300mg in one scoop of MM but without the 1,3.

  15. Back w/o today which meant deadlifts. I struggled a little but got it done. I'm always so winded afterward though, it's hard to get through the rest of my workout. I hate short changing my back workouts though, so I sucked it up and got to it.

    Deadlifts
    225x5
    275x5
    305x5

    HS one arm iso-row
    100x12
    100x12
    100x14 (broke form to rip these out)

    Chins (been awhile since I did these)
    BWx6
    *I was so freaking winded and my forearms were numb from the massive pump I had...i did a full chin-up from a dead hang and had to rest about 20 seconds before doing the next one. So I guess these were 6 rest-pause reps. Then I went to the machine lol.
    BW-20x6
    BW-20x6

    HS pullover
    90x15
    140x10
    140x10

    Finished off with a burnout set of curls
    65x12

    All in all not a bad session but I'm sure I'll have some significant improvements over the coming weeks. What hinders me the most are my forearms and stamina on back day, so as I adapt the weight will start increasing.

  16. Try deads at the end. That's what I normally do so I'm not exhausted.

  17. Well hey 6 rest paused reps is better than 1 rep! At least you know you did something right with the deadlifts. It might help to put them on their own day, so that you have an upper back day and a deadlift day.

    I was thinking about that but then I don't why to hinder my ability to go all out on deads either. I think it's the most important exercise you can do and I want to give everything I've got to it.

  19. Just a suggestion. I like to do them last so I'm all warmed up already for one. And also if ur doing deads its got a lot to do with ur quads imo moreso then back. This is why I stick with rack pulls most of the time.

    Thanks Classy...I just might have to throw another gym session in through the week. Maybe deads/abs/arms or something.

    Well, I'm off to hit shoulders now. Feeling sore as he11 in chest and back, especially my lats. But it lets me know I had a productive workout though. Will log a bit later.

    Yeah...and you're a BEAST too! Lol. I've seen your workouts Mr. Voluminator (sorry, was the only cool name I could come up with this early in the AM. :-P ) You definitely have an endurance and recovery capability that I have yet to achieve, but I think I will be getting there. For now I will keep doing what I'm doing and see what kind of progress I can make. Just keep giving me your support and feedback...knowing that I have you guys following my log (who I've got mad respect for) really keeps pushing me forward.

    Now for my Shoulder w/o log...

    Standing OH Press
    95x5
    115x5
    125x4

    Rear delt BB row
    85x15x3

    DB lat raise
    25x12
    25x10
    20x10 (drop to 10x10 for burnout)

    Alt front delt raise
    30x15
    30x12
    30x10
    20x15 (burnout)

    External rotation w/ cable
    30x9 (+3 swing reps)
    25x9 (+6 swing reps)
    25x9 (+3 swing reps)
    *I'm calling them swing reps because I put more body into the motion to keep it going after I failed at keeping form

    I've never done the rotation exercise before and have to say I really like them. They put a lot of focus on my rear delt and could actually feel the burn there...something I seem to struggle with.
