  7. Day 16

    Supplements

    Weight
    I've decided to stop obsessing daily. I won't be checking until Sunday or Monday

    Training

    Lower Body

    Squats - 5x225, 4x245, 2x265
    Leg Press - 3x6x410
    Calves on Leg Press 3x12x410
    treadmill - 5 min level 8 increasing incline 1 each minute
    Kneeling Leg Curls - 12x80-12x60-12x40 (one set to finish off)

    Thoughts

    I was discussing the next step after these 28 days and I'm undecided if I should stick with booneman77 PHAT program(well going back to it) right now I'm slightly modified.

    Reasons for staying with it are
    - I really enjoyed the format/layout of the program and had progress while cutting
    - I have yet to run the program In a true bulk. I had a bit of time that I wasn't really watching my calories

    Reasons for switching
    - I know it's not a great thing but sometimes I get bored and like a change. It gets me excited to start a new program.
    With my time restrictions on my workout I'm thinking a day workout with 1 day intense cardio.

    5/3/1 is one of the programs I'm looking at and I think it could fit my schedule well.

    Any suggestions? My goal will be for a lean bulk with Massmax. I also have Ori1gin.

  8. Day 17/18

    Getting in some decent training during my lunch. I haven't felt like going to the gym at all but forced myself to go and after I start my workout I'm good to go! My main lift out of the last 2 days was some deads today. I hit 3x5x335. I was happy with it and felt good after.

    Not checking my wait but I feel decent! I'm thinking my body is just sick of reduced calories. I'm also having some extra stress in my life so it will be nice to start the bulk process!

    From my previous post, does anyone have any tips/suggestions?

  9. I say do whatever program floats your boat as long as it's optimized. If changing programs will keep you entertained and enjoying the gym, I see no issue! I usually switch every 12 weeks or so, sometimes do 6 week stints depending on the program.

    5/3/1 is definitely fun and good for really progressing as long as you are staying true to that 1rm and not dogging it.

    so the best program is the one that you stick to and get excited about... if that means switching things up, go for it!

    maybe we can help you work something new out? How many days/wk and what kind of time restraints? What do you want to focus on (strength/size/endurance/etc)? what do you enjoy? what do you hate doing?

    Fair enough! Well I'll be good for minimum 4 days/week. I workout on my lunch so I'm packing it into 30-35 minutes. Strength would be 1 because I feel like my numbers are low, size 2 and endurance 3. Well the endurance part is almost separate for me. I need to keep up my running and be ready to run my VO2 max test. I'll run at other times during the week or on the weekend.

    I've been enjoying working on the big lifts bench, deadlifts, squats and OHP. There's no exercises that come to mind that I really don't like.

    I do find it hard to take long rest periods. I like working out quick and intense but I know that doesn't work so well for strength

    What about something like this:
    4 day split; each day would have 1 focal exercise, and 2 supporting exercises super-setted with an accessory" type moves that can be done without having too much impact on the big moves... Focus would be on max power for the main lift (really taking your time to rest) and then minimal rest, but allowing for recovery between the sets on the supporting lifts. Example (a "+" would denote a superset):

    Day 1: OHP focused, back supporting
    OHP (4x3-6)
    Machine Shoulder Press (3x4-8) + DB Rows (3x10-15)
    Lateral Raise (3x6-8) + Lat Pulldowns (3x10-15)

    Day 2: Squat focused, shoulder/bicep supporting:
    Squat (4x3-6reps)
    RDL (3x4-8) + DB Rear Delt Flys (3x10-15)
    Leg Press (3x6-8) + Bicep Curls (3x10-15)

    Day 3: Bench focused, legs supporting:
    Bench (4x3-6)
    DB Incline (3x4-8) + Leg extensions (3x10-15)
    DB Fly (3x6-8) + Ham Curls (3x10-15)

    Day 4: Deadlift focused, chest/tricep supporting
    Deadlift (4x3-6)
    Pullup (3x4-8) + Cable Fly (3x10-15)
    BB Row (3x6-8) + Skull Crusher (3x10-15)

    maybe throw in a few extra bicep/tricep supersets on off days or days you finish quickly for some extra reps there

    Dang thanks man! Looks pretty solid! As far as rep scheme/progression what would you think of doing it like the 5/3/1 program?

    When doing your program I ended up increasing like this say for bench I was aiming for. 3x3x225 keeping in the 3-5 rep range. If I hit the full 3 sets of 3x225 this week then the next week I would aim for 3x4x225, if I hit all 3 then the next week I would aim for 3x5x225 but if I say went 5x225, 5x225, 4x225 then I would try again the next week until I successfully hit the 3x5x225.

    I know part of my problem with progress on heavy lifts is not giving enough rest time between sets.

  16. Day 19

    Supplements

    Bloodshred Raw - pre cardio

    Training
    VO2 Max style treadmill run. Hit 16 minutes this week. Last week was only 14:30

    Thoughts
    Feeling good! I only had 2000 calories last night. Sticking strong today as well! I think I'll weigh in tomorrow morning.

  17. @Oconns28, Looking Good!

    That's exactly how I would do it! Keep steady until you nail all sets and reps, then bump. When you hit all at the top rep, bump weight.

    Thoughts
    Well this was my first time using DMAA and I was expecting crazy energy. I didn't get it! I had 1/3 cup of oatmeal about a hour and a bit before taking bloodshot. I think my last few weeks of high stim fat burners. I'm assuming a tolerance to DMHA affects the rush from DMAA??

    I felt jacked at the end of this workout though! My numbers aren't where I'd like them and actually down some. I'm looking forward to quit cutting and see if my strength will increase when my eating does!

  22. Day 22

    Supplements
    Red Sky - Before breakfast
    Bloodshot - PWO

    Training
    Squats - 3x225, 3x275, 2x280 PR-10x135
    Leg Press - 3x6x450
    Leg Press Calves - 2x15x450, 10x450-10x360-15x270-15x180

    Thoughts
    I really don't get the energy boost I thought I would from Bloodshot but it got me inspired and confident!! I was in the zone and wanted to push it!

    This is the last week of my cut so I've decided to push it and test my 3RM or better on a few big lifts. Next week will be a de-load(form) week and then the fun begins with MassMax!

  23. Day 24

    Well took yesterday and today off. Partly due to life and part due to me feeling burnt out!! I really need the break from the high stims! Friday will be my last day of dieting. I know I have fat remaining but my body wants a break from the cut. I will go on a strength focused run soon. I'm thinking an easy week next week, I'll judge how I'm feeling and either start massmax that week or wait one more

  24. Final day!!

    Calling it early! Just listening to my body and its sick of cutting!

    Weight - 179.2

    I did hit 178 which marks 40 lbs lost since my peak weight of 218! I had thought it was 216 but I looked back and turns out I must have had a couple extra cheeseburgers lol.

    I'm happy where I am. Sure I could lose a few more lbs and belly fat but whatever. I'm going to go for strength for a while before I try to cut again.

    I did the fat % scale again and it has improved. It's so messed up though athletic vs standard

    Athletic 9.7% bf
    Standard 16.8% bf

    Just doing this from my phone so it's not as clean and organized as I'd like lol.

    I should be starting up a log for mass in a week or so. Thanks everyone for the support!

  25. Awesome progress man! You really committed to it and made it happen. I think you're at a bf level where you're primed for some growth, but take it slow. Work out a decent reverse diet and you may even see fat loss too!
