HEy, looks like things are going good. How do you like the "nighttime fat burner" from the The ripped kit? I've seen it before, and wanted to try it out.
Going to post any progress pics?

The nighttime fat burner is not bad, actually. The nighttime fat burner working in concert with the daytime one is great.

And yeah, progress pics coming up once i've completed my cut.

Chest

Peck Deck superset with Dips
Peck Deck: 205 lbs. 1 set of 7 repetitions (static hold and slow negative on last rep)

Dips: Bodyweight, 1 set of 4 repetitions

Shoulders

Hammerstrength Shoulder Press machine
55 lbs. 1 set of 6 repetitions (3 more rest pause)

Reverse Pec Dec:
125 lbs. 1 set of 9 repetitions (4 more rest pause)

Back

Close Grip Underhand Pulldowns
130 lbs. 1 set of 6 repetitions (4 more rest pause)

Deadlift
275 lbs. 1 set of 6 repetitions (4 more rest pause)

Oh my God.... doing a heavy all-out set to failure of deadlifts is like being on drugs. Well, not the moment of doing them, but on the drive home from the gym and now that i've been sitting here for a bit, I feel SO GOOD!!!! I don't know, it's like being on a high or something. I guess it's the good old endorphins being released in response to the ultra-high intensity. This feels so amazing right now. A bomb could explode and I wouldnt care. I think i'll go lay down right now and stare at the ceiling.

Hamstrings are not going up in weight... hmm I may have maxed out there. Might have to switch exercises for them.

Okay, today was pretty good except for the shoulder presses. I asked a guy to spot me on the shoulder press machine just to help me get that last failure rep or two out. This guy didn't know how to spot properly. So what does he do? He assists me in every single rep! So, even though I got 9 reps out that way, I have no freaking clue how much I ACTUALLY got done on my own since he did half the work for me. I should have said something to him about it but oh well. I even told him at the beginning "just help me get my last rep or two out".

Anyways, people are telling me i'm looking leaner and stuff, so I guess I actually am! They say I look leaner in my face. Seems like fat gets reduced in crappy areas like in the face and under the chin before areas like the abdomen start to reduce. Oh well, at least its actually working. It's going to take a little longer to get the fat off the abs it seems. Slowly but surely!
