That makes sense; I read an article by Layne Norton that said 80% of the weight loss should come from diet and the other 20% should come from cardio. Glad I read that because I would have went overboard with the cardio. I've actually cut the cardio out of my bulk until my cut begins to reset everything.

Definitely don't go overboard with the cardio, especially low to moderate intensity cardio which creates a negative hormonal situation.

IMO, focus on mostly cutting carbs strategically. I.E., keep them as high as you can while still losing weight and only decrease when you stall out.

Tuesday - 4 more days to get these glutes tighter

Deadlift with Stiff Arm Hold
358.5x5, 5 sets
306x5

OH Press with Inverted Glute Ham (BWx10, 5 sets)
147.5x5, 6 sets

4 rounds of the following:
a) Maltese Cross Hold
b) OH Press 120x1
c) DB Curl with Fat Gripz 22x5, pause at bottom but maintaining tension on biceps, then explode up and pause/squeeze at top
d) Box Jump x 2

* Deadlift and OH Press felt AWESOME!

I like the above comments...doing high intensity cardio has actually helped my distance running as well...plus I eat like a freaking horse it seems, especially carbs. It seems my diet these days is like 30/50/20 P/C/F..LOL

Sorry I haven't been around.

Can't believe your contest is finally here.

GOOD LUCK! I know you are going to crush it.

No problem Arian, I know you are busy with school and getting stronger than EVERYONE on ABC, lol!

Contest is April 21st, the above countdown was to keep me motivated and to be ready early.

That shirt is awesome! Did you make it or is Workout Machine starting up a T-shirt business on the side?

Now I wish I would have bought some ABC gear to represent at the show.

It is our team shirt that we all wear under our singlet during competition. This is what the front looks like:



Then we decided to surprise Mike and write the quote on the back since he yells that all the time.
