Get Shredded!
First thing I want to say thanks to Macedog and Ironmaglabs for the opportunity to log this.

I tore a pec awhile back and my bench went to less that the bar. That's right, I couldn't bench the bar.
When could bench the bar, I started training one ten per side and eventually got to where I am now. I did 5X5 with 225 on the Cybex plate loaded bench last week.

I'm currently trying to get my bench back on the regular flat bench by doing pause reps. This should be interesting. I was going to compete at 181 so the goal is to get my weight back to that or lower. I'm currently about 192. Fat Pic coming soon 😜.
I will be doing a TKD/CKD. That's carbs pre and during workout and carbups on the weekends.

At 63 I'm in the 60-64 devision and was all over it before the injury. Will do bench tomorrow.

Hurray for the jorts. Enjoy the last carb day. Hopefully you don't crash too hard.

I ate about 50 grams of carbs yesterday.
For my cardio I did 6 miles on upright bike, one mile of walking and 3 miles on recumbent bike.
Today I add roughly 56 grams of mostly malto/dextrose to peri-workout phase.
Let's face it, ketones are crappy fuel for lifting. I'm usually back in a couples hours after workout.
I take in 36 in my pre-workout and drink 12 oz gatorade while lifting.

I don't really crash anymore when changing over. I blew out my coolest faded jorts doing squats in them. Use gym shorts for that now. :p

I walked a mile and then did 45 minutes of recombinant bike today. Didn't wanna go too hard on these legs and this seems to have helped. Let's go Brandon!

I said that I did tris/bis yesterday. It was obviously chest/ tries. I did back/bis today.
I added just a one tab of arginine akg to my pre-workout and pumps were off the charts. Almost took a pic because the vascularity was so crazy.

I did an hour on recumbent bike at home today. Should help with the leg soreness.
I should take the time to say that the Lean AF absorbs great. There's no heavy alcohol smell or anything bad. It absorbs well enough to put clothes on shorty after applying.

If you wonder what I was worried about after yesterday's workout, I had two broken hips in the wreck I was in in 2008. When I hit the bottom on the failed rep I had some pretty sharp pain in the hips. I finished the workout tho and seem ok today. They are sore today. We'll see when I train tomorrow.

Be careful and mindful of the hip. Very easy location for a tear. Tore my right hip labrum a couple years ago and just now really getting back to where I should be.

You don't do any direct shoulder exercises? Arms in general are a weak point for me. Well, everything but legs really? I know your cutting so you probably are where you want to be muscle wise. Curious, thanks!

I don't do ohp because my shoulder kinda clicks due to the shoulder separation I had. I just mix Incline bench, lat raises and facepulls in with other workout. I was doing a shoulder day before I tore the pec. I think my shoulder popped out and back in.

Thinking shrugs might actually help with the shoulder thing.

Hard to know exactly but I was down 5 lbs a few days ago. This has been a nice cut. Keep working on the 5X5 with 225 on the bench.

I deloaded a bit on squats but that's fine on a cut. Past injuries messing with me some. This is a pretty dry stack and that's to be expected. Only added a little 4-dhea and it doesn't aromatize much.

Still have a bit of belly but muscles feel dense and hard. Going to be easy to hit 180.

Loving the Lean AF Brandon!! Haha

I did an hour on an upright bike yesterday for cardio.
Today I weighed 183 at the gym in just my drawls. Still some fat so I might be going lower than my original goal weight.
