My journey to cutting

Page 2 of 7 First 1234 ... Last

  1. Wohoo! Moving in the right direction. Weight my self this morning 208lb, 19%BF and 39% muscle. Week 3 down 7 to go.


  2. Today I had the best workout since starting my cut. After a 17hr fast.

    Dead lift
    225x8
    315x6
    365x4

    Leg press
    3 sets of 200x12

    D.B incline press
    75x8
    80x8
    85x8
    90x9 had a spotter for this set was able to squeez one more.

    D.B shrug
    90x8
    95x8
    100x8

    50x10
    50x10

    Barbell curl
    80x8
    80x8
    90x8
    100x8

    Tri rope pulldown
    50x10
    60x10
    70x10
    80x8

    Dips
    3 sets of ten

    Calf raises
    255x12
    275x12
    295x12

    Like I said best workout since starting cut. Felt strong and focused. I'm also starting to see some changes on my body mid section looking slimmer and I can start too see some abs . My shoulders and arms are starting to look more define. I.F is working great. I stop taking the OPE just didn't like how I felt while taking it. So to recap intermittent fasting, 1800 to 2000 cals a day and a 46% carbs, 28% fat and 25% protein diet so far is working great!

    Might have been water weight? If your tracking your food on a spreadsheet or myfitnesspal, you might want to go back over it and check your sodium intake as well as whether or not you are getting enough water in. I'm pretty sure a lack of water will cause your Anti-Diuretic Hormone level to rise, causing excess bloat. You feeling more lean with the 7 pound drop?

    Could also have been dropping excess fecal matter with the start of IF. You weigh in on an empty stomach in the A.M.?

  5. Yes I weigh my self in the am empty stomach use and I like to track my food intake using myfitnesspal. Drink about a gal of water a day maybe more.i do feel and look more lean.

  6. Right on, right on. Congrats on the success so far, and I hope it continues!
    My parents created my body, in which I create my mind. I will honor them, by developing both to their utmost potential.

  9. hey mk! stopping by to say keep up the good work!!

  10. Thanks for the support gokix!

  11. looking good, congrats on the success so far! Your Protien is low for my liking but if it's working for you stick to it until you get stuck, just keep an eye on your LBM.

  12. Great work so far!
    I wouldn't put too much stock in the body fat readings, those scales determine body fat by sending a mild current through your body, however electricity
    travels the shortest distance between two points, the readings you're getting is just the body fat in your legs.
    Judging by your pictures you're likely much lower than the scale indicates.
    Don't rely on the numbers just use them as a reference point, and how you look in the mirror.
    If you really want to know what your body fat is have a trained professional do a Skinfold caliper test,
    or you could go the more expensive bod pod route, however the mirror and a tape measure is all you need to track your progress.
    Good luck.
    Peace

  13. Thanks for the advice todd. This last week has been great down to 206lbs and strength has gone up some.

  22. This is great progress. I am on a cutting cycle as well from 31 to 29 waist, I second it feels great.

  23. 200lbs and 15.7% bf according to skin fold test. I have 5lbs more to go and .7 % bf to reach my original goal and still to weeks to go for my goal set date. Once I have accomplished this I will set my new goal to 10% bf. Still not sure @ what weight level maybe 185 but not sure if I can do that with out loseing to much muscle. Any impute on this would be appreciated.
