My back is so sore right now!

My back hasn’t been this sore in a long, long time! Please tell me I not the only one who does this, but when I’m sore I love to move my muscles in such a way so that I can feel the soreness. I keep pressing my shoulder blades together so I can feel my upper back and lats cry out in protest. My pecs are also still a little sore from Monday’s workout. With… [Read more]

200 pounds/right at 8% body fat; Trouble spot; Last night’s workout; Party.

I weigh 200 pounds on the nose this morning, and I’m right on the upper edge of 8% body fat. In fact, if it weren’t for this little trouble spot below my belly button, I’d be totally happy with my body fat levels right now: All six of my abs are popping out, and my vascularity and muscle definition are right where I want them to be. Unfortunately I’m going to have to keep cutting… [Read more]

Strength is up, body fat is down.

Last night I switched to a chest routine that I last performed a couple of weeks before the end of my bulk. I used the same weights that I used back in January. Surprisingly I was able to do more reps last night than I was able to do in January! It’s nice to be several months into a cut and in a caloric deficit while still maintaining my strength. SGX really is an excellent… [Read more]

What a weekend!

This past weekend was a blast! I relaxed my regular diet considerably, and I missed a few meals as well. It felt good to take a little mini-break and not worry about being perfect. I’m going to do that a little more often this summer, maybe once a month or so. I talked about this in more detail yesterday. Today I’m back to my regular cutting diet – there’s still a lot of hard work… [Read more]

Nice day yesterday; Relaxing and finding balance.

Yesterday was gorgeous here in Orlando; there was not a cloud in the sky! It was a little on the warm side, but the humidity was so low that it didn’t feel too bad at all. I spent way too much time out in the sun enjoying the weather, and I’m kind of a reddish-brown this morning. It’s definitely not a sunburn kind of red; it looks more like the kind of red that will… [Read more]

After a rough start, yesterday was wonderful!

Yesterday may have started off a bit rocky, but I wound up having an awesome day! I know I said I was not going to have another cheat meal until the 21st, but I decided to go ahead a have my regularly scheduled cheat meal last night, as it was a special occasion and Lisa and I were celebrating. We actually went out to eat(!), and I finally had something besides BBQ or pizza: a… [Read more]

Work problems this morning – short update.

I was supposed to have the day off, but I woke up this morning and we’re having a network issue at work that requires my attention. I’m trying to get it figured out before my cardio so I can still take the day off. Sorry for the short update!

Down to 200.8 pounds; Summer plans; Bulking plans.

Wow! I’m down to 200.8 pounds this morning, and closing in on 8% body fat FAST! I took measurements yesterday and I’m still maintaining my muscle size very nicely. My waist, hips and thighs have all continued to shrink and I’m starting to look like I’m ready for the beach. This is the first time my upper body seems bigger than my big ol’ hips, but I still have A LOT of room for improvement… [Read more]

Cardio discussion.

There’s an interesting discussion on the forum regarding cardio. A lot of people really hate doing cardio, and a lot of people don’t find it necessary to achieving their body fat/fitness goals. While there’s no doubt that some people can get absolutely shredded without doing any sort of “formal” cardio, in my experience regular cardiovascular exercise is a great way to burn calories and improve overall health. Also, if you do LISS (Low Intensity Steady-State)… [Read more]

Last night’s workout; New Titan options (w/videos).

Excellent, sweaty, high-energy chest & abs workout last night! I went up in reps on my flat bench, and went up in weight on my incline bench and cable crossovers. I kept rest intervals very short, and had an amazing pump in my pecs when I finished. My ab work was brutal, thanks to the very short rest intervals and hard contractions/pause between the concentric and eccentric phases. It was one of those workouts where… [Read more]
