    Journal

    Decided just to start another journal from scratch instead of keeping up with the old one. I havent posted in a while just because i have been so busy. I started a cut a little over a month ago. Went from 16% bf to around 9-10%. I havent lost any muscle but my strength is pathetic. Gonna see how low i can get my body fat down in the next month and then start back bulking.

    Monday: Chest

    Flat BB Press: 225*5, 315*1, 275*5, 225*10
    Decline BB Press: 225*12, 275*10, 225*10
    Flat Flye: 40*12, 50*10, 60*6
    HS Flat Press SS Dips (BW)
    225*10, 20 dips for 3 sets
    Free Motion Flye: 50*12, 60*10, 70*8, 40*12

    Free Motion Shoulder Press: 120*10, 120*12, 100*15
    Lateral Raise SS Triceps Pressdown:
    30*12, stack*15
    35*10, stack*12
    40*8, stack*11

    Cardio: 40 min. (including stair climber, elliptical, and bike.

    I bet I can almost squat as much as you now. Probably even in the bench too! :evillaugh


    Anyway, you might want to have an extra $2 for the show because you might have to pay an extra cover because you're under 21. Regardless, Killswitch Engage Nov. 30th!!!

    I see nothing in there that could have lead you to that conclusion.


    Looking forward to seeing how things turned out from this diet, man. You look quite a bit leaner so maybe something in it worked.

    good job on the cut. I should be able to get you the camera tomorrow. I went to Walmart to get some pictures off the chip developed, but they were closed. I'll go get them done tonight so I can get the cam to you. Do you by any chance still have thos old pics of my gf, or did they get deleted?
