    thanks for checking in carib. I am pleasantly surprised that people notice my legs, but I do see some growth and definition coming in.

    2 more weeks of cutting, it is getting tough. I feel sore all of the time, is that from lowered carbs? Recovery is not as good as when I get to EAT, EAT, EAT.

    I don't think the increased soreness is due to the cut, more likely it is the result of increased training intensity/volume from the MMV2. Personally I don't get more sore when I'm cutting, just have less energy in the gym usually and get fatigued more easily. Keep it up though, just two weeks to go and then you can start to EAT EAT EAT! You're definitely looking leaner now than at the beginning of your cut so what you're doing is working.

    This is a really good log. How far are you going to take your cut? Are you just planning on losing some fat so you don't get too fat on your bulk or are you trying to get lean cuts?

    I decided to participate in the AM Contest so I have a goal to work towards. I didnt gain as much as I hoped throughout Aug, Sept, Oct. Busy sched, illness . . . but I didnt want to quit. I'm trying to come in as lean as possible for the Feb 1 date. I really don't gain much fat, even with a lax diet. I am quite busy daily, always on my feet and moving so that helps.

    Thanks for checking in.

    Day 19 01/20/09


    Supps:
    MMV2 (thinking of uppin to 4: 1 am, 2 pre, 1 post)
    Neovar
    White Blood
    Shred Matrix (1 packet AM)
    ATD 25 mg PM

    Workout- Legs/Triceps
    Squats
    3x8x225

    BB Single Leg Squat
    3x10x135

    SLDL
    1x135x10
    2x155x10

    Leg Ext

    3x80x10

    DB Kickbacks- Superset
    3x12x25

    Single Arm Cable/Rope Press

    Energy: I took MMV2 closer to workout but I felt more energy as I finished squats and went into Single leg squat, just kept pumping out reps. Usually on the last 2-3 I pause for a couple of secs, then finish . . . not today!!

    Pump: Tris were full and hurtin on the kickbacks and rope press. Veins poppin without workin the biceps or shoulders, looks like progress.

    Cardio: Are you kiddin?!? After legs, NO WAY. I will walk the dog later on so I get a little stretch. Legs were already tired for the double cardio yesterday.

    Next 2 days are quite busy at work so I will take off from wts and just do cardio, 45-60 minutes now.

    Compliments on my legs was great motivation! Just want to get in there and still improve, thanks. What are my weakest areas so that I can focus on those the next few months? I think its my back, no width . . . but my shoulders are not wide so I am at a disadvantage. I hate when I see guys with B R O A D S H O U L D E R S yet they do not even workout, just naturally wide . . . lucky!

    I actually think that your back is looking a bit thicker since your first pics, so whatever you're doing now is working. I think you should just keep hitting the heavy compound stuff - squats, deads and bench - and see what happens. The lower lats might need some improvement, try throwing in some wide grip pull ups and see what that does for your back. I also don't think your shoulders are bad man, you're starting to get that 'V' shape which is awesome!

    Thanks, the V may be coming in from the diet too as my waist gets smaller. I am much wider than I was several yrs ago, but some have w i d e shoulders naturally. I will get back to pullups, right now focusing on pulldowns with a lighter wt to focus on the contraction.

    Day 20 01/21/09


    Cardio only today: 45 min jog/walk, who knows . . . I may extend it to loosen up my legs from yesterday.

    I am starting to see more upper abs. Now if the area right around the bellybutton would go away! People at work say that I look like I have lost wt, so that is good I guess. Dont wanna look like I lost too much, then it may be muscle.

    Good Idea with the black background, I'm gonna try some practice shots this weekend. Yours look pretty good. Maybe work on the rear lat spread a little.

    The black background was from the advice of my trainer, only cost me $10. I am not wide to begin width but I know that is probably my weakest area.

    Thanks for checkin in everyone

    Day 22 01/23/09


    Wt: 159

    Supps:
    MMV2
    Neovar
    White Blood
    Shred Matrix (1 packet AM)

    Workout- Chest/Shoulders
    Incline BB- dropped the wt and went for more reps
    185x10
    195x8
    205x8


    DB Press/DB Flys- tough gett in the 85s so I dropped to 80 lb DB

    BB Military
    135x10
    135x10
    135x8

    Cardio: 45 min treadmill avg 15 incline @ 3.0 mph. At first I thought about cutting cardio short, no motivation or energy. Probably the limited carb intake today.

    Energy: I had the energy just the strength seemed to be down as I get strict on the diet. Ididnt let my ego get in the way and I dropped the wt so that I could get hi reps.

    Pump: Nothing extraordinary, usually dont get much pump on chest/shoulders.

    1 week to go so I will slowly cut the carbs and get ready for a re-feed on Sat to saturate the muscles. Cardio is a must-do, I cannot weasel out of it like I did in November. Tomorrow is Back/Biceps with 45 min cardio.

    I LOVE the feeling when I workout, not too aggressive but sometimes I am on edge. I just always feel like I can continue. I feel the most on my arms as far as a pump, makes sense: smaller, more compact muscles. They just get full and I can barely take off my shirt post workout.

    I cant stand carb deplete, headaches! I just have to focus on 2 more days then CARB UP!

    When should I add in the M1D? Should I wait til I have my contest pics are complete? Maybe wait a couple of days so that I can recover from the final week of contest prep. Last time I used M1D I loaded it for a couple days while on vacation, when I hit the gym it was full force and insane workouts. That may be a reason to start it on Monday yet not workout til Thurs.

    I forgot my shower towel, it was like the locker/shower scene in Starsky & Hutch as I used my hand towel for drying off.

    I cant stand carb deplete, headaches! I just have to focus on 2 more days then CARB UP!

    When should I add in the M1D? Should I wait til I have my contest pics are complete? Maybe wait a couple of days so that I can recover from the final week of contest prep. Last time I used M1D I loaded it for a couple days while on vacation, when I hit the gym it was full force and insane workouts. That may be a reason to start it on Monday yet not workout til Thurs.
    Maybe pre loading it for a day or two before you go back to training isn't a silly idea, since that seemed to work last time. I need ot get myself some M1D and give it a crack! sounds good!
