i said i would get back to this sunday after my weigh in so,
Two sundays ago: 179 @ 9.4% bf
Last sunday: 180.4 @ 9.4% bf
Today: 182.0 @ 10.6% bf
No changes in diet, can only mean the added bf came from that one huge binge meal at the buffet, and it is possible to gain fat from a single meal.

Ok, its Sunday. 3 weeks of gear and superlow cal dieting past. Took my morning supps and gear and upped my slimextreme today ta 2 capsules, not that I needed it, 1 was giving me very good appitite suppressing qualitites, I just wanted to see what 2 did, so I could see if it was slowly losing effect or if 1 is plenty for me. Probably go back to 1 tomorrow for the remainder of my diet. Breakfast was magical, 2 servings of kashi, 2 servings of eggbeaters and yep one cup of 2%. Lower back hurts less, however, um yea still hurting. I'm pretty sure what it is, is when I deadlift or squat with less than perfect form, such as being so damn horizontal at the beginning of the lift, that my spine goes thru a sheering effect. Causing massive amounts of pressure on my ligaments and tendons and muscles holding my spine in place. I also feel that doing that with my back slightly rounded as you could see,aka stupid, along with being that horizontal, I feel I pinched the cartilage in my lower 6 lumbar, yes I have 6 instead of everyone elses 5. Told that was a weakness but [email protected] that doctor. Anyways, I feel that the collateral damage to the tendons, ligaments, muscle and cartilage or any combination of those, which some could be ok, is causing swelling around the nerves running down my spine, therefore limiting my movement in my back tremendously due to the less space for the nerve and putting pressure on it whenever I get even the slightest out of alignment, when normally with no swelling, it would be perfectly fine to twist, bend and move. I am drinking my second cup of coffee and within 30 min I will be going to hit my calves and abs. Most likely I will be doing what would be a light workout for me. Or I guess I should say higher rep, I will still kill the muscles. I just have to watch how much pressure I put on my L-1thru6 until the swelling is gone and my wolverine like healing abilities have done their deed. I swear I should have stayed in the weapon X program and let them put the adamantium in my body. Damn the luck, I thought it was just going to be a passing fad... Oh well. Wish me luck, this might just hurt like a motherf(@@)ker, however I cannot just not workout. Only way I wouldn't workout is if I had like 105 temp, chills and shakes, anything touching my body hurt, food was not able to enter my body, things were leaving my body at a accelerated pace, possible dizzyness etc. Ya know, tha I think I'm dying feeling, sick. Regular sick, yea screw my immune system, Ima workout. A individual bodypart injured, ima work around it, this ones hard, lol since my spine seems to be a central part of my body connecting it all together hahaha. Ima just have to have a talk with it when I'm warming up, and make sure it understands that I am the boss, and it will do as I tell it, or suffer the consequences. Ya know, I think I might just be a lil insane, a slight bit retarded, a whole lot of redneck(regretfully), and just a lil bit X-men lol aka 6 lower vertabrae. Anyways, back to reality, I did my 10 min last night of HIIT on the elliptical during the movie, really tough last night, harder than the other times, not due to my back thou, it gave me no issues for that movement. Will probably do another 10 min tonight. Bout to be off to tha races. I think being OCD helps me not miss workouts, cuz its like I feel like I have to, lol. Yeay!!! A sickness that helps me train due to mental instability!!!

Pasta Macaroni Spaghetti Brown ricePotatoesOther root vegetablesWholemeal breads Granary bread Brown bread Pitta bread Bagel Wholegrain cereals High fiber breakfast cereals Porridge oats All bran Wheetabix Shredded wheat Ryvita crispbread Muesli Cassava Corn Yam
Oatcakes Peas Beans Lentils
Yea that was just a copy and paste, IDk what the hell most of that s**t is. hahahahaha.
Eat right, Workout properly with good form(as to not hurt yourself as I do, so I say do as I say, not as I do hahaha), rest, and plenty of Playstation 3 and listening to Eye of the Tiger, and you will succeed.
I also just looked back thru this and I saw you posted part of your routine.
What does your whole workout look like, including type and amount of cardio?
I like what I saw as far as compound movements, In my opinion every workout should center around compound movements. Isolation exercises then used to complete the kill. Include how many rest days you have and how many times you work each bodypart. Weather you go to failure, drop sets, pause sets, partials, cheat reps, isometric anything, negatives, supersets, bands, chains, blah blah. Any and all information, even if you think you are writing a book, will help show me as if I am looking through your eyes, at what you are doing, that way I can see if there are any red flags that pop up as I read, and we can discuss weather or not it is helping or hurting you.
p.s. Back is still hurting, but not near as bad as yesterday morning, meaning the swelling is going down.
p.s.s. With proper everything, nothing is impossible. I totally knew 2 years ago when I made this pic, I would have a use for it. PREPARE FOR GLORY!!!

P.s. the chinese buffet isn't where you will find the foods I said to eat. lol. However I completely understand capones desire to eat 100,000 calories at one. Which now I will probably have to do as well at my next cheat day hahahaha!!!

On my cell now lol. I forgot ta say I think, weighed this morning 233. Can visibly tell abs are still slowly coming in better, and abdominal thickness front to back is diminishing.
08-16-2009, 02:10 PM
hey man great progress on the cut!
ive read everything you've be saying to david and i was wondering what you think someone who is higher in fat should do...like 6 ft 190 lifting for about 4 months. idk bf % i might get that later today or tomorrow
08-16-2009, 02:23 PM
Thanks very much. Headed out the door now to hit my workout then five hours of driving to get two of my kids. I get on here on my moto q thou and yes even while driving, ik I shouldn't. Idc what your bodyfat % is. I can get a rough estimate from pics. A few pics will help alot for my mind to work. Also what kind of routine and your eating habits. The more info you can give me the more personalized ideas I can throw at you.
08-16-2009, 02:41 PM
alright thanks a lot man....and as of today im starting a keto diet with refeeds on either saturday or sunday...
before 3 weeks ago my diet was complete crap and i mean bad like i ate fast food and frozen pizzas all the time because i was out...then i started an eca stack and slowly started cutting out pop and pizza...then 5 days ago i switched from an eca stack to SX and i dont seem to be going down in weight at all but i do seem a little leaner and my strength is going up? dont know why
my routine looks like this now but i think it may change when i go back to school any ways to improve it would be great!
MON - chest, triceps,
tuesday - cardio or 3 hours of indoor volleyball
wednesday - back and biceps
thursday - cardio or 3 hours of indoor volleyball
friday - shoulders and legs
saturday - cardio or off
sunday - off
as i said i think this will change when i go back to school because i will have more free time and some to workout with. i think i may work out 5 times a week when i go back.
and here are the pics there from a week or two ago...definitely embarassing...just went to lifetime and test said i was 21%bf but idk

Ok, workout wasn't too bad. 99 percent of my calve work is in my power rack standing with barbell on my back. I use some 2x3 tubing to build me a raised platform for my feet. Yea I weld and build stuff too. I prefer standing because idk when I will ever need to pick up something heavy from a seated position with my calves... wait ik ik, I come across a car thats fallen off a jack and i c its the perfect height for my calve to fit with my upper thigh tightly against toe bumper, I calve raise the car and save the mechanic. lol. ima idiot. Nyways I did 6 sets and blasted them, however I only went up to 225. Still a good workout. Reverse calve raises on my leg curl hurt... still killed them. abs were fine, barely noticed pain. obliques hurt a bit but ehh. blasted my forearms and about to get my daughter. Had a metrx protein bar for lunch after workout. overall it didn't hurt my bck too much and the added blood rushing around back there should help with healing, I just had to be careful not to aggrivate or make it worse. Healing thou. Cardio tonight. Then I gotta get some sleep, Capone said ima bad person if I don't get enough sleep, jk lol. 2 sx are deff working me. Will respond to other questions soon.

I wanna reply to all this but my responses are way more than I wanna do driving lol. Will respond when I get home.
08-16-2009, 07:03 PM
Oh and let me say it like this. Look bro, 4 months ago I was about 220 pounds ( same amount of muscle I have now so it was all BF) and I lost it. Now that I am finally in a almost comfortable body weight your telling me the only way I can really buff up is if i gain fatty muscle and then cut down later. I get uncomfortable feeling when i eat 2k calories, much less 3k+ calories. I used to have ridges in my shirt where you could see the outline of my fat chest and hips.. (it only came from dating the same chick for 3+years) Now I actually have a chest with some detailed muscle to it and almost visible abs and you tell me I have to give it up to gain muscle. And what if while im eatin those cals I do 30 mins of cardio daily sweatin like a pig. thats still going to be so hard to go from eating about 1800 calories a day to 3200 calories a day.. IM confused and scared of what your response will be
