    Trying to cut at least. I'm definitely still getting leaner but my weight hasn't changed much these past few weeks.

    I really feel that lunges are an under-appreciated exercise. Still can't get over how tired/sore I get after only a few sets of 10. Really hits those stabilizer muscles that I've been neglecting.
