Gettin`ripped .
I've decided to start my log here, cuz i've read through numerous log's here and on other boards and found that this is the best way to track progress, share experience and recieve/provide motivation and information.I'm a predominantly endomorph ,but best way to describe myself is endo-mesomorph.However i've started at the age ot 14-5 greatly overweighted, due to overfeeding with junk food and no sport or activity.At the age of 19 i was at my leanest ,bust way to skinny and way too weak.Currently i'm muscular and lean at 76-9kg depending on if i'm depleted or carbed up.
My ultimate goal for the next 5 months till summer is to get myself leaner than ever, and if possible to even increase my strength.

I'll be following my concept of CKD which i firmly believe is the best way/diet for someone with similar metabolism who want's to get realy lean and keep most why not even gain some muscle in the process.

So it's show time ,starting tomorrow !:)

Macros:70f/30p/0c(not a complete 0 but no direct sources of carbs) -10%BMR
6 meals
Vit C 3g morning and lunch
Multi's morning
Yohimbine bark extract 3 caps morning empty stomach
GABA before bed

Sunday will be a complete off day for me cuz i want to relax both physicaly and mentaly from training.Also i've notice that this is probably the best way to increase my motivation and hit the weights harder.
I'm using grape seeds oil for the first time as my main fat source and it's nice ,also relatively cheap.

1.Deadlift raw 10-8-6 then i attempted a max efford but failed at 175kg's.Then one last set of 10 with wide grip.
2.Did this insane giant set -pullups-static pullup-pulldown for 3 sets.Realy insane ,great pump.
3.Machine pullover -12-10-6(rest pause) then another 4 reps
4.Seated cable rows to the neck - 3 sets with static hold at the last rep of every set
Pretty much the same workout as workout 6 from buildingtheultimateback with little modifications.

Day 5: AM: Biceps,forearms
I did 2nd routine from 8weekstofullerbiceps but lower the sets to 4 on each exercise.Great pump however.
Preacher EZ bar reverse curls - 4 sets till failure.
Reverse EZ bar wrist curls - 4 sets till failure
1 giant set -Barbell wrist curls supersetted with Behind-the-back
wrist curls supersetted with dumbell hold's.

PM: Chest,Triceps
1.Flat dumbell bench press - 4x10/8/6/6
2.Machine flies - 3x12/8/8 - stretching after each set
3.Decline smith machine press - well i don't have a decline bench in the gym so i had to improvise and place 4x20kg plates under the bench.This however unables me to go realy heavy cuz i cannot place my feets on the ground and instead i placed 2 dumbells and use them as a contra weight.
4.Flat machine press - 3x8/8/8
I did stretching and squeezing at the end.The pump was so great!
1.Seated EZ bar press - 3x8/8/10 - i could do more reps but i don't wanna risk an injury cuz there is no one to spot me.
2.Decline smith machine close grip press - 3x8/8/8 - i do static hold's at the end of each set for 10-15 seconds
3.One arm dumbell press - 3 double drop sets till failure
4.Overhead cable extensions - 3 sets /total reps drop set method
I realy believe that the creatine is working so **** well.The pump and the strength are still there.

4.Walking lunges - 3sets till total failure

This was by far the most taxing workout.I felt so exhausted to the point that i didn't know what's going on around me..just breathing extremely heavy and trying to keep myself up and not collapse. The fun part was on my way back home when 2 policemen stopped me and when they insisted to see my ID i gave them my gym member card without even realizing what am i doing, my mind was not there at this time ..they thought i was high or something haha.
