First day of my cut; rough first day as I'm use to eating CHOs and supplementing with BCAAs between meals. Without the CHOs there I found myself extremely hungry going into lunch. Taking this cut slow my weight averaged out to 200 going into it; looking to drop a pound a week 70% of the weight from diet and 30% from cardio. Follow along this should be an interesting journey.

Best of luck, just be patient and you will love the results.

To deal with hunger I found a few things helpful:
1) Be generous with the veggies and don't be scared to have some celery or carrots between meals to help provide some stomach content
2) Drink tons of water, helps fill the stomach
3) Vacumm poses or crunches can sometimes dissipate stomach pain especially if it is gas related (sometimes an empty stomach when cutting can be more gassy than we you are bulking and full often)

Thanks; I drank more water today made it right before lunch before I started to feel really hungry.

Going into the second week of my cut; continue to hit PRs though I'll be switching up the lifts next week as well as the volume. I've noticed I've been fatiguing towards the end of these workouts. Had to tweak my diet a little because the weight was coming off too quick; right now I think I got it where it needs to be.

Cut the volume and it seemed to do the trick; just focusing on moving maximum amount of weight and I no longer have to worry about fatiguing before the end of the workout.

I normally squat in my socks; it's just something that I've become accustomed to and until Friday it had never been an issue at my gym. Someone didn't like it and went to the front desk and I was asked to put back on my shoes. Their reasoning was it was a liability; I find that funny because I signed a waiver when I started my membership. Realistically if I drop a weight on my foot; number one I can't sue, number 2 a shoe isn't going to prevent my foot from getting injured. Anyhow looks like my wife will be getting me some squat shoes for Father's day so in the end everything will work out.

Everything is looking strong, what a great way to start your cut.

What is your current weight? Do you have an end goal?

BTW, gotta love how they cater to the whiny vocal people at your gym (read with sarcasm).

They may regret that when the quite people start leaving their gym.

Current weight is a little under 195 right now; I'm two weeks down with another 10 weeks to go. I'd like to drop around a pound a week so I'd like to get around 185ish. Then I'll start bulking again; the right way this time.

Upper Power

Assisted T-Bar Rows (weight not including the apparatus):
180X3
185X3
190X3 PR

DB Bench:
90X3
95X3
100X3 PR

Chin-ups:
35X6
50X6 PR

Incline:
185X6
205X6 PR

Lat Pull-downs:
210X6
230X6 PR

DB Shoulder Press:
65X6
70X6 PR

Preacher Curls:
115X6
120X6 PR

Tricep Pushdowns:
180X6
200X6 PR

Hit a PR on every lift today; haven't used these lifts on power days in a while so I needed to get a general idea of where I was at; next week will be a little easier. T-bars were assisted to keep my lower back fresh for deadlifts tomorrow. Normally I would do closegrip bench as well, but it's common in my gym for no benches to be open because that's all the people do there.
