Well I'm starting my big fat cutting program. I got off my routine thanks to snow days and funerals but now i'm ready to go, cut fat and get a little but more cut looking. I don't intend to really change my workouts that much besides adding cardio and cutting calorie intake.

Tomorrow is cardio day, today was chest/back.


Deadlifts

1x8@72.2 KG
1x5@122.2kg
1x3@122.2kg
1x4@122.2kg

My lower back wasn't feelin strong at all during those deads. Next week i'll be stronger.

Bench

1x8@145
1x6@165
1x5@185
1x2@205

Little bit weaker but i didn't lose too much muscle from my break.

Seated Row

1x8@130
2x8@140

Curls

2x8@30

Side Rows

2x8@75

Had a lighter day thanks to my break but tomorrow is going to be squats/abs/calves/cardio.

Man, school is getting in the way of me lifting, not cool. :lol:

Squats

1x6@185
1x6@195

put a belt on, probably didn't need it but i was being cautious today

1x5@225
1x5@235

Felt good, i was takin it easy today

good mornings cool down


1x8@135(super slow to stretch my back)

Ab cable pull downs

2x20@70

Easy stuff

Side bends

1x12@45
1x12@50

Single dumbel high pull

1x12@45
1x12@50

Tomorrow is going to be bench, row, push press and tricep stuff. I'm redoing what days i do what lifts on i'm thinking about maybe a 3 day workout with something like this....

Day 1

Squats
Good mornings
Caf raises
lunges
ab work
side bends

Day 2

Bench
Seated row
side row
Shrugs
curls
triceps stuff
Push press

Day 3

Deadlift
High pull
Cleans
leg curls
ab work
side bends

I'm thinking about throwing in cardio days in between those so i can cut some fat and still gain a pretty penny of muscle. I plan on going relatively high calorie on the lifting days and then low calorie on the cardio days. Any thoughts about this would be great.

Tomorrow is legs. I feel super good and found a really cute girl who knows massage therapy and definitely offered to make me dinner.

Unfortunately she's not a veg*n, has blue balled many of my male friends, has lots of emotional baggage and is a huge flirt.

Well really the only unfortunate part is her not being a veggie. Emotional baggage and flirting is fine by me. 8)

Right now i'm at about 235. I don't have access to a very good scale so that may be a little high(they calibrate the one in the weight room high so it makes the football players feel huge and makes the wrestlers lose more weight, pathetic i know)

I haven't been able to get back on a good routine. If you saw my old log you'd be wondering why the hell i'm lifting such puny weight now. :lol: I hope to have a 300/400/500 split by the end of summer(bench, squat, deadlift respectively).

I blame winter break and all those vegan cookies i ate. :oops: :lol: :evil:

I'm pretty sure vegan cupcakes actually make you stronger. Not so sure about the cookies anymore....

Don't feel very sore today which is good because i have a long day ahead of me. I feel the perfect amount of sore for getting back into a workout routine.

I think all junk(thats not greasy) makes you stronger for at least temporarily. You might not feel good though.

Well my issue wasn't all of the vegan cookies, it was the lack of working out of winter break. :oops:

I'm going to be taking muay thai lessons this summer though. Hopefully that'll get my butt into even better shape. My goal is to have nice enough of a body to nude model for my school's art department next year. Probably a pretty good way to meet cool artsy girls now that i think of it. :lol:
