    I dunno why I tried maxing out today, knew it would bad idea but I did it anyways lmao. 385 was slower than I wanted, should have gone for 395 and taken the pr, instead I was too greedy. Really sucks because the weights feel light, I just run out of gas so fast right now. Really need to stop being lazy and track my cals, they've been inconstant lately and I have a feeling I dropped them too low. First cheat meal in about 10 days tonight we'll see how I feel squatting tomorrow.

    Been trying to practice rear lat spread. Hit this tonight, I can't for the life of me recreate it though. Pose pisses me off so much.

    Energy was pretty good for once. Been lowering some of the weights just a tad and focusing more on form. Lateral raises were done seated with my legs up on the bench, starting from a dead stop each rep with no swinging/momentum. I really like seated DB lateral raises, forces you to use good form, none of that bent over 90 degrees swinging like crazy bullshit.

    Weight was 196 post workout, not really depleted but not full either. Gonna slowly add in more carbs around my workouts each week and see if it makes much difference.

    Thanks bro. It's kinda hard to tell with the crap picture quality but I'm holding most of my fat right in the lower back/love handle area. V-taper should look a lot better once that spare tire melts away.

    Strength has been shit this entire week, been so pissed I haven't bothered logging my workouts. I really think it's my CNS, all my accessory work feels great and certain muscle groups still feel strong, but shit just feels heavy as fuck on the compound lifts.Went in for 370 x 3 on bench and barely got 370 x 2. 500 x 5 on deads felt like a million fucking pounds. I haven't been tracking cals during this cut and I really think I dropped them way too low last week. Down to 192 today after my workout. Going all out on my cheat day and next week I'm really gonna get serious. I've been holding off on using stims but it's time to start using the good ol' EC stack. Also gonna start doing some HIIT on my off days; we'll see how long that lasts lol

    Shit like this happens all the time while cutting, nothing wrong with lighter weights during this phase.

    Your barbell curls are insane!

    One small tip on the rear lat spread you don't want to "hump" the wall. It looks like your hips are pushing towards the back wall while your upper back is pushing back towards the camera.

    I would say that your shoulders and your hips should be close to being on the same plane, if that makes sense. Your middle back should round out more so, and you can slightly tell that Rory is doing that in his avatar and his back is probably being posed about as well as it can to highlight it.

    You're actually supposed to hump upwards with your hips which is why most competitors are on the balls of their feet in a rear lat spread. Doing this keeps the glutes and hams as tight as possible.

    I honestly think it's working well, but I'm still trying to tweak some things to get my energy levels consistent. Next week I'm going to try no carbs pre-workout; I think what happens is sometimes I digest what I'm eating so fast my blood sugar levels actually drop lower than normal during my workout, and the higher than normal amount of insulin lowers lipolysis, so overall energy is crap. I remember when I was doing a strict CKD my workouts really weren't bad having eaten nothing but fat all day. Insulin sensitivity sky rockets right after exercise so I'll just focus on eating more immediately after. As long as glycogen levels aren't severely low there's no point in carbs pre-workout.

    You can still keep your glutes and hams tight without humping forward too much. You can keep your back more flat or you can round it, but it all depends on which way accentuates your back more. Hitting any type of pose is all about manipulating it to make you look your best.

    For instance, in Nick's avatar his back is pretty much flat throughout without much forward humping and I think it's one of Nick's best rear lat spreads.

    There is a difference in how you pose during a competition and hitting a pose for a picture, so Nick I'd try to play around with standing more upright and rolling your shoulders a bit, it may look better, worse, or no difference.

    So for shits I went onto fitday and put in what I'd eaten today. Came out to 1500 cals, lol. I have a feeling most non-training days I've been under 2k cals, which is def too low at this point. No wonder energy has been crap, fucking stupid ass. Time for more bacon.
