I am using this journal to share my diet and workouts with other people for possible feedback, both positive and negative.
Here is my split:
I just started my cut. Going from 4,500 to 3,000 by dropping 250 calories a week.
I am at 3,750 right now. I am doing this because I do not want to lose any strength. I figured that it's not a good idea to bulk after a cut and go from 3,000 to 4,500 in one day (I think that's a good way to gain about 10 pounds of fat in a week).
Let's start with the workout today.
The workout was a 8/10. I am not eating as many carbs, I am down 750 calories a day already so it's going to show in my performance in the gym.
Here's what I did today:
Incline DB press
Flat DB press
Seated DB press
60x6,6 (I was really bummed about these. I just went down from a 4 day split to a 3 day split. I used to do shoulders on their own day, 1st exercise in the gym, I used to do 72x7, but doing shoulders after chest while cutting - it's bound to happen that you have to lower the weight)
DB side laterals
Close grip bench press using EZ-bar
Here's the diet
Meal 1 - Protein shake - 8oz milk, 1 cup oatmeal, 2 scoops protein, frozen banana, 4 fish oil caps

Meal 3 - 1 chicken breast, 1 rice, 3 egg whites, 1 black beans, salad, cooked w/olive oil
