ke0ki's cutting log

hmmm...thanks for the advice, Beowulf. The CKD worked well for me,but my strength did go down a bit - its back up though after 6 weeks of maitenence/traditional nute ratios. I guess different bodies work better with different methods. CKD.com is full of people that swear by it.
I havent read too much about UD2.0 - other than that its really hard to follow. With the CKD I did - I trained everything like I normally do, and did mild cardio 4x a week. The 2nd week without carbs was rough, but after the refeeds I felt really good with lots of energy. I went from a nice snug fit in my size 38 pants to being comfortable in the 34's that have been in the closet for 6 months, except Im a little tight around the quads So that's a good thing!
I did gain a bit of fat back since Ive been of the diet, but Ive also been eating over maintence the past couple weeks, in an effort to get strength up before I start the next CKD phase. Still, right around 15% and nowhere near as chunky as I was 10lbs ago.
Im not saying Bobo's methods arent superior to this one, quite the contrary Im sure that if I were training under him Id be seeing great results - things seem to be going OK for me though with the plan Im on. If I start losing copious amounts of muscle of course I will change my methods!!

So its basically a choice. For better long term results and a chance to achieve low bf%, a low carb diet is not the best option IMO. Constant carbohydrate intake is simply too important IMO.For answers to board issues, read the Suggestion and News forum at the bottom of the main page.

Just to drop my 2 cents-
I've been through phases where I concentrated on strength and power, and a phase of cutting to try to achieve very low bf, so I have an opinion on both.
The dieting was without a doubt one of the hardest things I've ever done in my life. And I didn't even get as close as I'd like, but I just couldn't do it anymore. I have a HUGE respect for bodybuilders, drugs or no drugs. Dieting is tough, even depressing (was for me anyway).

Thanks for your input Bobo - maybe I will forgo the next CKD after all. Its hard to make up my mind at this point. Ive never tried to achieve a 'ripped' physique up until now, Im training by myself so at times its tough to get motivated when Ive got so much else going on. Maybe I need to jump on the Bobo plan

Weight today was 176.6. Feeling scrawny and looking soft. I am looking leaner but also alot less muscular. My diet has been superb except I had 2 cheat meals on Sunday instead of 1. I dunno what's up.
I ordered some superdrol yesterday and am going to start a cycle to give me a little help.
05-12-2005, 11:38 PM
Weighed in at 176.6 again today. My waist is TINY and getting smaller by the day. I still don't have a sixpack (the lower 2 just never show) but I can see a lot of definition where there wasn't much previously. I have been eating and training perfectly since my last post. I still feel small but I am really starting to look lean and cut. I would say I'm around 10% bf and hope to get around 5-6% within the next 6 weeks. Funny thing is my strength is up on triceps and remaining the same in all other areas.
As I stated in my previous post I will be starting a superdrol cycle on Monday and am going back and forth between a 2on-2off-2on and 3on-2off-3on cycle.

Started my SD yesterday. Going at 10mg a day for 3 weeks. No 2nd cycle after that.
Weighed in today at 177.5. Weight gain is due in part to water gain from sd and some not so great eating this past weekend. Prior to this weekend I looked rippped to shreds.

Weight today was 179.2. Saw midnight showing of Star Wars last night and got a bag of movie theater popcorn and bag of chewy sweet tarts (this is extremely rare). I was expecting to look terrible today but I actually looked leaner and more defined then the day before! I am thinking it's the sd working (i love this stuff already).

Time for an update...
Bobo is king of personal trainers. SD is pinnacle of legal androgens.
I have hovered around 179 for 2 weeks now but I am MUCH leaner and I look quite buff My strength is up on everything and I feel great. I bumped the sd up to 20mg. Yes, SD lived up to the hype although it was milder than I anticipated. Diet has been close to perfect (minus a handful of cheddar cheese popcorn and tuna sushi with white rice). Haven't missed a workout or cardio session yet. Initially I wasn't doing my cardio in the morning and holding off till later in the day. I have changed that and made time for AM cardio. I have never been this ripped before in my life but I still don't have a freaking 6 pack!! The bottom 2 abs just don't want to show. Regardless I suspect I am at 7-8% now. I am hoping to get to 4-6% with Bobo's help. HELLLP MEEEE BOBOOO.
Here are my lifts as of now (this isn't what I can do for EVERY set rather what I can do on my first set following warmup):
DB bench: 100 x 8
Arnold Press: 70 x 8
DB Curls: 55 x 8
Seated Rows: 150 x 10
Squats: 225 x 12
Bent Over Rows: 275 x 6
Pull Ups: 7 w/45 lbs around waist
I am going to add an ECA in to the equation in the next week or so. Bobo any recommendations on when I should do this?

Keep going. THe abs will be last to show. You have to lose that fat that you don't look at (inner thighs, lower back, ass, etc...). Once that goes, the abs become visible. It just takes a while and its not easy.

Weighed in at 181 today so up about 5 lbs since the start of SD. I am at 20 mg a day now. Setting PR's on pretty much every exercise. Retaining a bit of water due to SD and my diet getting a little off track.
06-06-2005, 10:01 PM
Weighed in yesterday at 182.5. Finished my sd cycle (3 weeks total). I've decided not to do a 2nd cycle. Diet has been perfect except for 1 rather bad cheat meal. Training has also been perfect. Haven't missed a day on this program yet.
I'm taking rebound xt for pct along with red yeast rice, coq10, and milk thistle. I also just started taking san v12 (i stopped during the sd cycle) and an eca. I retained a bit of water on cycle so I expect to drop a quick 3-4 lbs in the next couple days.
06-06-2005, 10:27 PM
I must also add that I did not experience many side effects while on cycle. I had a tough time getting to sleep some nights which is unusual, but I cannot say for sure whether it was caused by the sd since I was also taking green tea extract.
I only experienced lower back pumps only on my last leg day and I assume this is because the last couple days I bumped the dosage to 30mg. They weren't unbearable but I did have to rest a bit longer than usual between sets till they subsided. Besides that the pump did not hinder my workout.
Otherwise I am pretty satisfied with the results. I leaned out and at the same time gained ~6 lbs. I'm sure if I had been bulking I would have gained a lot more weight. I also gained a good bit of strength. I am hearing that most people are keeping most if not all of their strength so we will see if the same is true for me.

Day 6 of PCT. Weighed in yesterday at 181 and my strength is still the same! I am very impressed so far.

I've got the 'small' part mastered. I'm going to pay Bobo to make me pretty.Originally Posted by Bobo
Keep up the good work ke0ki, sounds like you're doing great!
