    Hman's cutting up!


    I have been meaning to start this log for a bit now, but have just been tired and busy. This isn't going to be a serious log just to track my weight loss and to get some help from my friends when needed. I have already been cutting for 3 weeks already . I started at 192 and am now down to 185-3. So far so good.
    My supps consist of cla, glutamine, protein, bcaas, relora and various stims. Cardio is done 4-6 times a week, some is fatsed and some is postworkout. I have been slacking on the cardio the last 2 weeks but will make up for it this 2 weeks.

    I did a 3 week pulse of super a month or 2 ago but it was short and i put on a couple pounds. I don't know how much I kept because I started the cut not too long afterwards. Thanks for the compliment I have been training really hard and eating well.

    I have never run it seriously before but i am noticing some effects. I don't know if it is just the cla or a combo of all the supps. I am running 4g a day split up throughout the day. Thanks for stopping by!

    Just got back from the gym and the low carb thing is killing my strength. Thats what always stops me mid cut. I hate losing strength and size, but i would rather get lean and then continue on bulking(cleanly). Lets just say it was rough in there

    Same here, man. There is just something satisfying about being lean over being big. Now, if I could be 250lbs at 10-12% bf, I'd probably take it, but I don't think my genetics would allow me to get even close to that. I'll settle for 180lbs at 6-7% bf.

    Being big is sweet, but I just feel so great being lean and mean.

    Yeah buddy and when you go into bulk mode it is so much easier to gain lean mass and you can tell visibly how much you gained alot easier.

    I like to look at it this way. From going low-carb for so long you become more sensitive to insulin so you can get a solid 4-6weeks of GFH'n in.

    But i hear you. I still have cals high and just cut carbs and im bloated and flat, the worst two things you can be...blah

    Agreed. I feel much better when I'm mid 190's to high 180's. I felt huge at 225-230lbs, but I was up in the 15% + bf, easy.

    Here's me at 230 doing push ups with a friend.

    Looking good man.. In for this one. The strength loss, is depressing..lol

    Irish, you seem to have some solid genetics man. How hard is it for you to stay that lean? I just want to be 210 @ 10% or so.

    It's not REAL hard for me to stay lean, and I seem to thrive on a cut as I make real good, quick progress; however, the trade off is it's more difficult for me to try to add LBM without putting on a decent amount of fat. I've found that the "slow and steady" approach works best for me.

    210 @ 10% would be nice too.

    I feel the same way. I feel like the human body (or at least for most people) has very little problem getting big. However, it does have a problem with getting big and staying lean. Therefore, I also like the slow and steady approach to bulking.

    Low & slow, like cooking ribs.

    You're actually a lot more patient then I am. I inherently take the marathoners approach when trying to add muscle, but when it comes to shedding fat, I'm very ADD. I drop too quickly and I do pay the price, but my mind goes to a different place when I'm in a genuine cut mode. I become over-concerned with the fat loss and under-concerned about the muscle loss as a result of a fast acting cut.

    I have the opposite problem, its easy for me to maintain 210-215lbs, relatively lean and damn near impossible for me to hold 190lbs, respectfully lean, and I prefer being in the 190's.

    Keep it up Hman!

    I agree with IC's earlier comment, your shoulders & bi's are looking stacked.

    I am the same exact way. I can diet and after 12 weeks be down only about 15lbs bc I've kept my LBM but bulking is a different story. I'm too impatient about adding mass bc it SHOULD be easier! You usually hear people bitch about not being able to lose weight,lol.

    For me to stay under 10% for a long time, id likely need to be eating 1300cals, and doing 5hrs of cardio a week(maybe more)

    Man that sucks hard. I could stay at about 8% taking in 2k cals/day and doing no cardio. Gaining LBM is real hard for me, though. It comes and goes. 170-175lbs seems to be the sweet spot for me; meaning I can hold that weight and be pretty lean relatively easily. Anything above that is hard for me to hold on to.
