Yesterday’s chest/triceps/delts workout was, without any doubt, the best of the best so far on this cut. Not only did I enjoy every second of the workout, my strength and energy was through the roof. I added 10 pounds to last week’s bench press weight, and it felt more like I’d removed 10 pounds!

My bench press was just the start: I added weight on every exercise, and hit my target reps (actually exceed them on most exercises) every time. Eight straight weeks of cutting and I feel like I’m on a bulk. Just crazy.

With my strength continuing to grow as I drop my body fat (currently in the mid 6% range), I’m not in any hurry to end this cut. As long as my strength and energy feel like this I’m going to continue to lean out and get as light as possible. Apart from one or two days last week, I’ve felt amazing during this entire cut. I’ve also not experienced any serious cravings at all. This cut has been… dare I say it? Fun. Really fun. šŸ™‚

I snapped the picture shown above during my workout, and I think it captures how I was feeling yesterday. I added the photo to my 2012 photo gallery.

Hey, enough about me–let’s get to the awesome March 2012 Transformation Spotlight of the Month!

March 2012 TSM: Terps01fan2006!

March 2012 TSM: Terps01fan2006!

For the March 2012 Transformation Spotlight of the Month I’ve selected JSF forum member “Terps01fan2006” (Ryan). In 2007 Ryan was morbidly obese and decided that it was time to make a change. Like many of those who resolve to lose weight for the New Year, Ryan’s first attempt at a transformation lasted a good solid week. The seed was planted, however, and Ryan found it within himself to to try again the next month. Closing in on 300 pounds and struggling to complete just 2 minutes of exercise, Ryan knew that he had a very long and difficult road ahead of him. Since 2007 Ryan has not only lost more than 100 pounds of fat, he’s run nine marathons, completed two half-ironmans and much more. Ryan’s life has changed in just about every way imaginable, and it all started with that first step…

Check out Ryan’s pictures and full interview here.

Reminder: Iā€™m always looking for TSM nominations. If you, or someone you know, has made a successful transformation, please contact me and let me know about it!
