View Full Version : First Cut: Critique

11-30-2006, 02:10 PM
Hello Everyone,

Spent the last year bulking from 150 to 200 with great results (100 lb. increase in bench 1rm, 150 lb. increase in squat 1rm).

I want to cut from 200 down to 180 before I start my next bulk. My maintenance is somewhere between 3000-3500, so I am going to start my cut at 2,500-2600 cals for two weeks and then increase or decrease from there.

I'm going to the gym roughly 5 times a week; each session approx. 45 minutes (40 minutes lifting, 5 min. hiit).

Here is my fitday for the past 4 days. Didn't have much use for it when bulking, but now that I'm cutting it seems to be a very useful tool :)


Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'm still a noob at all this.

Diet looks fairly decent. Consistency is the key. Keep it up for a while and see how long it works!
