    First Cutting Log


    OK so long story short i have been in and out of hospital for the last twelve months over a stupid surgery that never quite healed.
    As i havent been able to train or eat properly due to this i have gained a fair few excess pounds and lost alot of size an strength.
    On Sunday i started my cut at 194 and would like to cut down to 180 before i jump on cycle. I wont start my cycle until i have reached this goal.
    I will report my weight every monday
    I work shift work so some of my workouts will be all over the place and because the only gym in town is only open 3 hours on weekends there will be two weekends a month i cant lift.
    My macro ratio will be 50% protein 30% fats and 20% carbs to a total of 2000 - 2200 calories
    I work an even time roster which includes day and night shift. On my day shifts i will be cutting all carbs out and will be doing cardio only. I have my night shifts as off days. I will lift on every one of my rostered days off and onmy changeover (between day shift and night shift) i will do the big three movements (deads, squats and bench). I will add pics when i can find my cable for my camera.
    The only things i supplement are my multivitamin, protein powder when im in a jam, Oxy Elite Pro and Jack3d for my pre workout

    Today was leg day but ive had a tightness in my hamstring and my tibialus anterior muscles so i was abit limited on what i could do but i still went down and threw some weights around. Ive had the tightness in those muscles since my first run on monday so ihavent been able to do cardio since. Hopefully they willbe better by tomorrowbecause i have three days straight of cardio coming up.
    Thursdays workout
    Squats
    290x 8
    265 x 8
    245 x 8 dropset 225 x 6 dropset 130 x 12 these sets were all quite easy so ill probably start off next week at 310 fo my first set and then pyramid down

    Flat Leg Press
    640 x 10 x 10 x 10 these were probably a bit light but i have been nursing my legs thus far because some of the movements hurt my wound on my lower back. Will go back to heavy next week.

    Leg Extension
    Plate 8/10 x 10 x 10 x 10

    Seated Calve Raise
    175 x 18 x 15 x 15

    Standing calve Raise
    200 x 10 x 10 x 10

    My workout was cut short because my training partner / girlfriend packed a mega **** over a joke i made lol women!
    My diet was a bit off today because i had to travel 125 miles to the city and spend the day there so i had to rely on fast food. Most of it actually wasnt that bad as theres a couple healthy snack places in a shopping centre. Macro nutrient ratio of 52% protein 29% carbs and 19% fats for a total of 2241 cals

    Day 5
    Today was supposed to be HIIT day but by the time i got home from work the gym hadclosed! Hate small towns. I ended up just going for a low intensity jog for 30 mins. The gym will be closed tomorrow because its the weekend and i dnt get home until 1900 after day shift.
    Not much else to report my diet was slightly over target calorie wise but it was all protein. I had no direct carb sources today so im not sure how myfitnesspal calculated 67g carbs anyways my total cals were 2374 with 323g protein 67g carbs and 105 fats. Macronutrien ratio of 52% protein 37% fats and 11% carbs
    I havent been doing much cardio due to the fact that when i started late last week, i have had the worst pain in my tibia (front of calve) and a tightness in my left calve. I probably should have eased my way into it lol. the pain went away today but came back as soon as i started running. Will have to see what i can do on days off.

    I feel you on the gym being closed man... Where I live, here every gym is closed on SUNDAY. So it's hard to maintain your on and off days sometimes... Did you see a doctor for that pain?

    Sometimes we have no choice else than fast foods... But I don't directly go to fast foods.... I 1st prefer to get milk and some healthy food like bar-b-qued chicken or something which is way better choice than FAST FOOD...

    Today was going to be a low intensity cardio day but after the 14 hour shift i decided to make it an off day. Tomorrow was supposed to be my off day, but i swapped shifts so i can have tomorrow off work so il train weights and cardio tomorrow and the next day instead of doing m big compound day which was supposed to be monday. Over the next two days ill do a two day split befoe going back to my five day split starting wednesday. Diet today was too high in calories (2400) again because it wasnt supposed to be an off day but all in all it wasa good day with a macro ratio of 55% protein 32% fats and 13% carbs. the only direct carb source today was the one sugar in my first cup of coffee lol. 330g pro 92g fat 59g carbs

    I know you can do HIIT anywhere on anything but when i do it I prefer to do mine with sprints on a field or outdoors anywhere. When you're doing HIIT in the gym what do you usually do? The gym closed on weekends doesn't pose that big of a problem.. Since the gym is closed on the weekends you could use saturday as a cardio outdoors day and sunday as a day off...

    Yeah thats true but when i work day shift over the weekend by the time i get home its dark and the lights at the local field are off so theyre usually off days. its only once a month so its not too bad. I usually hit the treadmill or the elliptical. 30 on 30 off

    day seven
    weight 189.5 down 4.5 pounds in seven days. thats a good start. i mustve been holding onto a lot of water. id like to think 2 pounds of that was fat loss tho.
    todays workout
    today was chest tris and bis

    flat dumbell press
    90s x 9 x 8 x 8 dropset 65s x 6

    Incline Dumbell press
    70s x 8
    65s x 8

    Close grip smith bench
    155 x 6

    120 x 10

    Dips
    BW x 11 x 8 x 8

    Straight bar pushdowns
    120 x 12 x 8 x 8 i only had 25 - 30 seconds between each set of these tring to fatigue the muscle faster

    Cable preacher curls
    70 x 12 x 10 x 8 reduced rest periods used here no more than 30 secs rest max

    Diet has been ok today thus far with 1895 calories. im on night shift tonight so ill updat again in the morning with my total overall calories for the 24 hour period that ill be awake. so far my macro ratio is 40% protein 30% carbs and 30% fats. this increase in carbs is due to the protein i have to use. i ran ut of my usual one so i have had to resort back to my bulking protein until my new tub arrives. it has 46g of carbs per serving so ill be using it sparingly. unfortunately i rely on protein powders on night shift for two of my meals. i think i should be fine tho as long as i dont have any carbs with my other meals.

    My total calories for my First night shift was 3236. It might seem like a lot but I was awake for over 24 hours. My macro ratio over this extended period of being awake was 46% protein 34% fats and 20% carbs.

    That's good...

    But I personally think that doing cardio away from your weight training gives better results...

    Yeah i usually do it on different days and on those days have zero carbs but i have been doing 20 - 30 mins post lifting as muscle glycogen is low at ths point so hopefully it will hlp me get lean. If i start noticing srength loss i will cut this cardio out and just focus on lifting day and cardio days.

    Day 11
    Leg day. I was going to superset legs wit some ab work but f*uck me my abs are sore!

    Barbell Squats i was focusing on form toda and time under tension for squats.
    310 x 8
    290 x 9
    265 x 10 dropset 225 x 8

    Walking Barbell Lunges
    110 x 12 x 12 x 6 this got heavy real quick and i almost fell over LOL!

    Leg Extension (Calgym)
    plate 9/10 x 10 x9
    plate 8/10 x 11

    Stiff legged deadlifts
    135 x 10 x 10 x 10

    Standing Calve Raise
    200 12 x10 x 9

    Seated Calve Raise
    175 x 18 x 16 x 14

    To be quite honest i was completely gassed after lunges. Every set had reduced rest periods no more than 30 secs.
    I thnk the oxy elite pro is definitely working. Ever since i started takin it pre workout i seem to sweat so much. My shirt was compltely saturated after squats.
    Diet was on point with 2139 calories 300g protein 61g fats 105g carbs but 35 of those were fibrous. my macro ratio was 56% protein 25% fats and 19% carbs

    Day 12
    Chest and Triceps
    Todays workout was Sh1t!! im not sure if its related to my weakness in my left shoulder a week ago but F me it was sore! on my first warmup set, just above my collarbone i ad a dull ache. i dint think much of it until i went heavy on bench my first set on 225, it just stung! i think it might be a referred pain because there was no sign of it on shoulder day. i think i might take a week off any chest exercises because ive had issues the last two weeks with my left shoulder.

    Bench press
    225 x 2 Fail! decided to go on to dumbells instead as they are easier on my shoulders.

    Flat dumbell press
    90s x 8x 6
    85s x 8 The pain was still there but nowhere near as bad buti still couldnt push it.

    Barbell incline bench press
    155 x 10 x 10 x 10 there was no pain in this movement but i decided to keep it light
    Dips BW x 12 x 12x 12 i could feel the soreness here on BW so decided not to add any weight

    Smith machine bench press
    135 x 8 x 8 x 8 Kept these light and really focused on the movement
    smith close grip bench press
    90 x 10 x 10 x 10 same again here just kept it light and did them slow

    Cable Flyes
    60 per side x 12 x 12 x 12
    Vbar pushdowns 140 x 12 x 12 x 12

    All in all i did end up with a sweat but i thik that was just the oxy elite pro. i finished up with 15 minutes HIIT on the spin bike. id had enough by this point i was not happy and i had the sh1ts bigtime. Hopefully back and biceps will be better tomorrow. i wont beable to deadlift as my quads are really sore! it hurts to walk. lol. i havent finished my food log yet so ill update that later!

    Yeah i was thinking about it but id really like to get down to about 12% before i start to bulk. If i get down to that level then i wont be as concerned with putting on a little fat whle bulking up. Hopefully about 3 - 4 weeks and ill start a clean bulk for abit before i jump on cycle.

    Todays diet was a planned carb up day and i kinda blew out calorie wise but thats ok ill only do this about every two weeks. I have a coupe of mini carb ups during those two weeks where ill take in about 150g carbs. Todays calories were 3183. 281g Protein 277g carbs 96g fats. my macro ratio was 36% Protein 36% carbs 28% fats.

    at what bf% are you at now....
    And which calculator do you use to measure it, if it's online give me the link also...

    U know I have been bulking since past 6 months I guess. I have not been bulking clean cause it's real difficult and costly here so I also gained fat on me.... I got upto 80kg from 72kg and Now it's been about 10 days I am trying to eat as clean as possible and I have also started cycling about 5 days ago and It's going good.... I also think I need to get my bf% down but I won't go for a cut I would suggest to cut bf while I add on muscle.... But I hope you get down to 12% ASAP and start your bulk just like the way you think you should.... Cherrs man!

    Well congrats on making some gains im sure some of those 8kgs is muscle! I know you can get online BF calculaters but theyre not really that accurate. The best way to get an accurate meaurement is to do a bioscan or body analysis scan. Most people on here just use calipers which give you a rough idea of where your sitting. I had a Bioscan done abot a year ago when i got outta hospital so in comparison to whre im at now id hazard a guess of about 17% - 20% which im not happy with. When i think ive lost enough ill go get another bioscan done so ill have an accurate %. Yeah bro im hearin you about the price of a clean bulk its not cheap to eat clean. The price of our weekly shopping bill is nothing short of ridiculous! Are you carb cycling or cycling something else...

    I was going to record my weight today but im sure the scales are Focked! apparently ive put on 4lbs (2kg). But ive goe down two notches in my weight belt. Maybe it because i carbed up last night. I will go up o the OTs tomorrow and double check.
    Todays workout

    That 8kg is not all muscle... but I goy my chest from 42inches to 43.5 my quads from 22.5 (or23) to 24inches my arms to 15inches again (My arms are relatively smaller, they should be bigger compaired to my other bodyparts)
    Here I can't find calipers anywhere lol. To be honest I don't even know what is carbs cycling lol :P can you explain what in your mind do you think is carbs cycling? :P then I will explain what I think of that....

    Hope to see a reply soon.

    I almost forgot to mention that since I started cycling and cleaning my diet I got to 79-78kg from 80kg, that's the fat I lost
