    Just thought id rant -

    Had awful brainfog today. Carbs are down to 30-40g per meal and its really affecting me. Hopefully the test will give me a mood boost when i start it next week. Hoping to do a bit of a recomp while dieting. If i make it out of this 'anabolic cut' at 220 ill be VERY happy...only 21 pounds to go. Gonna go do some GPP on the field later. Probably go like this, taking it relatively easy as its my first GPP workout, gonna be ghetto style as i have no epuipment. If i can find a log i will throw, flip and press it -

    Sprint 50mx2
    Burpeesx10
    Speed Situpsx10
    1 minute rest
    repeat
    Current 1RM's - Bench 264lbs (Target 308lbs)/Squat 396lbs (Target 352lbs)/
    Deadlift 429lbs (Target 440lbs)

    BigCorey 75 - Haha, thanks man...one day it will happen

    Al3x - Youve got a much easier time ahead than me man

    Yesterdays workout - Weights in kgs/lbs

    Leg Extensions 14/30x15
    BB Squats 40/88x10
    90/198x5
    100/220x5
    110/242x5
    120/264x5
    130/286x2
    Pendlay Row 40/88x10
    85/187x5
    90/198x5
    95/209x5
    100/220x5
    105/231x3
    Decided to switch to 3x5 to cut workouts shorter and maintain energy
    Flat BB Bench (No back arch) 60/132x10
    95/209x5
    100/220x5
    105/231x3
    Dips (Start on machine) 46/100x10
    56/120x8
    64/140x8
    BW (110/241)x4
    Suprised i got any as it was the first time ive done bodyweight dips on the parallel bar. My partner had to hold my feet as i was rocking all over and couldt steady myself
    Chins (Start on cable) 45/99x10
    75/165x8
    90/198x8
    BW (110/241)x2 HARD!
    CG Bench 40/88x10
    75/165x8
    80/176x8
    85/187x4
    BB Curls 20/44x10
    25/55x8
    30/66x8
    35/77x6

    Good workout. Had plenty of energy and dips felt awesome. Plus we made a GHETTO dip belt by looping a chain round our lifting belts that, fastening it with a clip and hanging a dumbell through. Cost = £1.60. Beats £25 for a dip belt! Plus i cheated on my diet by having 2 chocolate bars and it was worth EVERY CALORIE. I had a peanut butter Kit Kat Chunky and a Double Decker, only put me about 100-150 cals over so its ok as i cut out my last meal. Its my girlfriends fault, if she didnt buy chocolate i wouldnt have given in to my weak will!...oh well

    damn man! 100 pounds lost in 2 weeks, you're an inspiration!

    Did i spot some bodyweight exercises in there. Good job pushing them out, i used to hate pullups/dips but once you get good at them you'll love em. Why don't you try doing negatives until you can get 5x5? Either way great start to the cut my man.

    Haha, less of the sarcasm, its fixed. I dont think id look too healthy at 138 and 6ft 2, possibly dead. Id rather work my way up doing full reps, ill be hitting 5 reps on dips next week EASY! I might do chins for as many as i can then finish with negatives.

    Weighed myself yesterday morning and i was at 239 and again this morning at 241...one of the differential factors being that i couldnt manage to 'pass' last nights food this morning.
