Overtime; Cutting plans; Reminders.

I’m in overtime now: it’s week 14 of my planned 13-week bulk. I’m going to work as hard as I can to make the extra four weeks I’ve added to my 2008 bulk extremely productive. This week I’ll be changing all my workouts around, and these are the workouts I’ll be using until the end of my bulk. I’ll be posting the new workouts all this week. These workouts will have less volume than most of the other workouts I’ve done on this bulk. After 13 weeks of rather high volume lifting, what I’d like to do now is reduce the volume a bit while increasing the intensity. My general plan is to use some of my favorite mass-building exercises and keep the workouts simple, short and ultra-intense. You can expect to see a lot of compounds in these workouts: barbell bench press, deadlifts, squats, barbell rows, overhead press, cleans, etc…
I’ve been thinking a bit about what I’m going to do after my bulk is over. My bulk ends on January 25, 2009, and the first thing I’m going to do is take one week completely off from training (January 26 – February 1). Starting on Monday, February 2, I will begin to eat at maintenance levels and will train hard for the rest of the month. I will start my 2009 cut on March 2, 2009. Starting my cut in March is a bit of a departure for me, but I’m going to need a month after this bulk to sort of reset. I simply can’t come off an ultra-intense 17-week bulk and go straight into a protracted 4 or 5 month cut or I’ll lose it.
