Your beard looks about as my big as my playoff beard was last year. Was it itching like crazy?

Actually no, the problem was tangles, had to comb it several times a day or it got tangled something fierce. The itchy stage for me was when I was first getting past about 1/2 inch. Then again at around maybe 1 inch. But once it got really long (over 4 months growth, some strands were 2 inches plus), it wasn't itchy at all for me.

Diet Update:

Bodyweight last week: 188.2
This week: 187.2

Macro's now (same as last week):
3142 123 291 220

Things are moving in the right direction. My upperbody is almost as good as my October 2010 condition. Lower body is lagging behind as before, but I have time.

Lighting isn't fantastic, I feel leaner than the picture.

Did CT's prowler leg protocol last night along with some upperbody sled work.

Wow, you already have pretty impressive muscle definition even though you aren't done with your cut. The beard may be even more impressive than the muscle.

Yes it is, I'm glad it's clicking, because time is ticking.

Thanks, chops are gone now, I feel naked.

Thursday - 64 days

Squat w/ Band Curl
242.5x5, 4 sets

Bench with Chains
120 (+50 in chains) x 10, 7 sets

* All bicep work done with 30 seconds of rest, biceps and forearms were on fire, weight was light, but after a few sets it didn't matter. Pump was excellent

Band Curl
3 sets of 10

Preacher Curl Wide Grip
40x10, 3 sets

Barbell Curl Close Grip
40x10, 3 sets

Incline DB Curl
8x15, 2 sets

*Continuing my bench deload. Lighter on bench and no maltese ring work. Shouder felt great as a result. Hope to actually let this darn deltoid heal.

------

I was working out with my two boys, age 7 and 11, helping them get strong for their sports; gymnastics and soccer respectively, and I hit a PR on chinups.

I like to challenge them to see if the two of them can combine their reps to beat mine. Well today, after 15 chinups I was still going smooth. By 19 I was slowing down but I wasn't going to stop at 19. 20 was pretty slow, but still a clean full rep....and a new PR.

Part of it may be cutting weight, but even last January 2011 when I was in the low 170's I couldn't do 20 chinups. So I can conclude that my back is stronger now.

Friday - 63 days

Deadlift w/ Stiff Arm Band Lat Hold
336 x 5, 4 sets

OH Press w/ Band Pullapart Hold
128.5 x 5, 6 sets

Front Lever with Ring Dips, BWx5, 7 supersets

Inverted Glute Ham
BWx8, 3 sets

I OWNED this work out, deadlifts flew up and so did OH press. Also, I somehow had time for an additional front lever/ring dip superset and inverted glute-hams. All in all, 5 extra sets. More work/less time, getting conditioned.

--------

Forgot to mention, did the prowler leg protocol each of the last 3 nights. Feelin' good.

Also, last night did 8 supersets of L-sit holds and weighted serratus crunches and I practiced the mandatories & relaxed poses.
