Today is the end of week #9 of my 2010 cut and, as I always do on Sunday, it’s time to look at the numbers and evaluate my progress.

My scale weight this morning is 189.6 pounds, and that means I’ve lost 1.2 pounds over the past week, and a total of 16.8 pounds since the start of my cut. Nice to see some progress after stalling a bit during week #8.

My body fat reading this morning is 10.8% (as measured by the Fat Track PRO Digital Body Fat Calipers). That’s a .4% drop from last week’s reading of 11.2%, and a 4.7% drop from my 2010 cut starting body fat percentage of 15.5%.

Over the past week I’ve lost .89 pounds of fat and .31 pounds of lean mass. For some reason my caliper readings were a bit scattered this morning (not enough coffee I guess), and so I used the worst of the bunch as my official reading. The middle reading was 10.7%, which would indicate only a .12 pound loss in lean mass, and my lowest reading was 10.6%. Anyway, I’m not going to get all wrapped up in worrying about a few tenths of a pound. It’s not like I’m dieting down for bodybuilding contest or a photo shoot.

My total losses since the start of my cut now stand at 11.51 pounds of fat, and 5.29 pounds of lean mass.

My tape measurements (as measured by the MyoTape) are as follows: this past week I lost a quarter-inch from my waist. There were slight reductions in a couple other areas, but not quite a full quarter inch. All the rest of my measurements remained the same. My 2010 cut total measurement changes now come to a total of 3 inches off my waist, 2.25 inches from my hips, 1.5 inches from my thighs and a half-inch from my chest.

While I’m happy that I made progress this week, I still think I need to make some adjustments. I’m going to be below 10% body fat within the next week or so, and the next couple of points off my body fat percentage are not going to come easy. I’m going to add another cardio day per week (4 total), and on non-training days I’ll will look to reduce carbs and increase fat (keeping total calories about the same). Even though the only supplements I’ve used so far on this cut are Nitrean protein powder and a multi-vitamin, I may add glutamine and BCAAs within the next couple of weeks in an effort to avoid lean mass loss as I dip into single-digit body fat percentages.
