Monday September 25th

Chest Day:

Incline DB Press - 5x8 65lbs
Flat DB Press - 5x8 65lbs
Peck Deck - 4x8 90lbs
Push Ups to Failure - 45
Crunches - 4x25
Leg Raises - 4x25

Cardio for 40 mins

Reps were dropped from 10 to 8 this week. Felt really good on the chest today and easily bumped the weight on incline DB's up 10 lbs from last week. Flat's were only bumped 5 mainly because my chest gets worn out after doing all the inclines presses.

I also replaced the vups with regular crunches as I really don't like this exercise and don't feel its worth my time squirming around on the floor for. I will be looking for a better ab exercise that targets the same region for next week.

Ahh 6 rep sets, finally familiar territory. Everything this week felt really good as these are the type of sets/reps I am use to working with. I bumped alot of the exercises on the back day more this week than I have before as I was feeling pretty strong. I did keep in mind however that next week I have to bump the weights again and go back up to 8 reps, so I didn't want to have weight so high that I would fail next week.

I also took it a little easier on cardio this week as I was feeling a burnt out when it came to the treadmill.

Weight as of this morning was 208.2 lbs, down another pound. Still haven't cheated and don't plan to until Thanksgiving week when I am taking some vacation time. Since that is around 6 weeks away I should be pretty close to the end of this program anyhow and at that point will decide if I want to take the cut a little longer.

Yep, I am pretty happy with the progress so far and the rate at which I am losing makes me believe I am conserving as much muscle as I can. I was worried for a while between weeks 2-5 when I wasn't seeing much scale movement but things seem to have worked themselves out.

This week I was supposed to both increase the reps/sets to 6 sets of 8 reps while at the same time bumping the weight. However I soon realized that on alot of these exercises (especially the dumbbell ones) it was going to be either one or the other. For most of the exercises I tried to increase the weight and up'd the reps to 8 for 5 sets instead of 6.

No weightloss this week that I can mention but my carb day did fall on Saturday so my weight was up a little this morning.

I am also upping my sesamin dosage to 5 caps for a week to see what happens. I ordered a refill and for some reason they sent me two for the price of one, so I figure I might as well see what happens.
Next week we go into the 4-6 rep range.... yay baby!

This week the reps dropped significantly to four reps for five sets. Some of these exercises I felt I could have gone a little higher on as I spent alot of time trying to find the correct weight for the rep range. Needless to say, I am alot happier going heavier for lower rep sets.

My weight seems to have stalled for the past two weeks now so I have decided to cut out another 200 some cals a day. This will put me near 2000-2100 calories a day, so I think I will just go with the cut diet 2000 plan as it is already laid out for me. The 2000 plan gives me 250 grams of protein a day on non training days as compared to the 300 on the 2500 plan I was following. I know my body well enough to know that I should be fine on 250 grams a day.

This will also cut my meals to 6 compared to 7 a day. I have been having problems getting in the 7th meal lately so I feel this plan maybe a better fit and will allow me to hit the sack a little earlier. I will monitor my progress and if I feel I am losing to fast I will add in some cals.

Do you think that maybe some added muscle mass could've kept the scale even while losing bodyfat? Especially now since the rep range has lowered and your intensity has risen?

If not, the 200 cals is a good idea. A small change like that will go a long way!
