Yesterday i felt a flu coming on, but i think i fought it successfully... took some aspirin, vitamin c and zinc, wrapped myself in a lot of clothes and and two blankets to sweat out everything, and slept for hours and hours... well, felt alright this morning, so i hope that's it and i can workout tonight!

Thanks mike! I don't know... it's just the way that works best for me! I can't tell u if it could work for everyone, but i guess there are lot of people out there who could make good progress by doing what i do. The thing is just that cardio is the common way for cutting and people think it's a must for getting ripped...
Trust me, i'm not too lazy for cardio, tried it several times for my preparation. Result was always the same: flat muscles and no significant fat loss! So i returned to strict diet and heavy lifting... "works"!

i can see how it works mate, cardio does give the flat look sometimes, i guess its your diet being so strict that does it, coupled with still lifting heavy equals good results.......how long till the show now mate? what weight are you planning on being?

Yeah, I hear you about cardio flattening you out. Gotta try things for yourself and find what works, there's no 'one way' or 'right way' to do things, everybody is different.

You had a good week?

Still not 100% sure where i'll start, but there's a good chance i'm gonna compete at an IFBB show, since a few mates of me compete there as well... this would be really f****** hard, caus everyone knows it's THE bodybuilding federation out there! And i'd probably be the only one on stage who's clean... ^^ but i gotta get on stage again, and the next natural contest is in october.
The ifbb show is at the end of april, so still a few weeks left to prepare. Have no concrete bodyweight i'm tryin to reach. Just have to look how much will be left in the end ;) somewhere around 80kg probably... will be lighter than my opponents anyway ^^
