Default Jones Vs. Moses - THE CUT

Well here it is Gents...
A good friend of mine, along with myself are going on a 3 month "cut". The rules are:
1. No Steroids - this goes for you Moses!
2. Post your progress - workouts/meals if you want.
3. Lots of Smack talk

The duration of our contest will be over 3 months. Before and after (maybe progression) pictures will be posted.

Moses, please be prepared to be embarrassed by a truly superior athlete with god-like genetics. When we are done "the cut", I will be asked by numerous hollywood agents to be the star in the next Spartacus series or 300 movie. While you, if so blessed, may be asked to be the "before" picture in a poorly written hydroxycut ad.

All jokes aside, this will be purely for motivation between the two of us. If anyone would like to chime in at any time or join us, please feel free. All comments and advice is appreciated. There is no prize for winning or criteria for winning for that matter, simply the satisfaction of watching the results take form, all while motivating in an entertaining manner.

You know what I've learned in the last 2 years or so? Lifting heavy *** weights makes you literally strong as heck. Now my cohort here is pretty much terrified of lifting anything that weighs more than a loaf of bread so it makes sense that he would need a desperate ego repair job.

Now this repair job is obviously materializing itself in the form of this puny attempt at a "challenge". I've known "bigjonesy" for a pretty long time now, and I will give him this... I used to be a big fat wimp that didn't do anything but play video games.

For the last two years I've been lifting as heavy as I could, as often as I could. I've gotten to a place where I can be happy with my gains as far as lifts are concerned, but not as happy in the "looks department". Normally the "looks department" is a "department" reserved for "weak people" and "bigjonesy". "quotes".

My biggest concern here is that I don't feel my vaginas per hour or VPH is quite where I need it to be. So I will partake in this challenge to shed some of my excess manliness and hopefully distill it in to something that "bigjonesy" can consume so that he can stop being a flimsy waif.

Lets do this thing!

Age: 23
Height: 6'2
Weight: 275lb
BF: 19% (I'd say more towards 18 or 17, but whatever)
Waist: 38"
Chest: my measuring tape is cowering in fear somewhere
Bicep: 19" at last measure

Goal:
Weight: 225
Waist: it doesn't matter I'll be buying new clothes anyway
Chest: Jupiter
Bicep: Pluto

I gave bigjonesy a much needed head start of two days, so my cut starts today.

8:00AM

Whey Protein Shake (3 scoops myofusion, wahhhhh calories)
2x Centrum Forte

10:00AM

30 Minute Run
Barbell Complexes
Sloshpipe

Whey Protein Shake (2 scoops myofusion)
1 Cup of Souls of the ****ed

12:00PM
5 Scrambled Eggs with a light sprinkling of pain.

2:30

Whey Protein Shake (mini shake, 1.5 scoops in small container)
1 x Chicken Breast, cooked to perfection.
Half a pineapple

5:30

Chicken Breast x 2 w/ honey

9:00

Casein Protein

----

There you have it you salty sea dogs, this is the recipe for victory and it courses through my veins like liquid lightning.

Day 1/WO 1
- Most of these Wo's are strip sets while super setting. I am essentially using the 13 week fat burning program. Last night in the gym, the first half of the workout felt awesome, was lifting great, and then all of a sudden, just over half way through my energy levels dropped off, and I felt like a life sized version of Gumby. I will definately need to make some adjustments to my portion sizes and add in an pre wo shake.

On these workouts, there are no real resting periods, basically enough time to set up the weights, grab a swig of xtend and keep going. All chest excersizes are super setted with a back excersize to keep the blood moving.

Decline bench
12x 205
10x 205
12x 155

Wide Grip Pull downs
12x 180
10x 180
12x 160

Incline Bench
12x 205
10x 185
8x 185

Close Grip Pulldown
12x 180
10x 180
8x 170

Flat Dumbell Bench (1 and a halfs) - these feel like someone is jabbing a knife into my pecs
10x 45's
8x 45's
6x 45's

Bent over rows -reverse grip - hold at top
15x 50
12x 50
15x 40

Non- Peak Dumbell flys - by now my chest feels like mashed potatoes mixed with pain.
12x 35's
10x 35's
12x 30's

Side Laterals
12x 25's
Hold 30 seconds - this hurts more than landing on a bike with no seat
Flex 30 seconds - this is what I imagine death feels like

Front raises
12x 25's
Hold 30 seconds
Flex 30 seconds

Seated rear delt laterals
12x 25's
1 min flex - after 30 seconds my delts felt like they had been lit on fire, but I managed to hold out for the full minute. Man does this work though.

Hack Squat machine shrugs w/ partial reps
15x 195
20x 180
25x 160

As you can see, I was not concentrating on moving big weight to start. I wanted to make sure my form was good, and that I would be able to keep up a good pace throughout the whole work out. Even with my energy levels dropping, I still was able to bang it all out. Today I feel good. This morning I was a bit more hungry than normal.

more to follow.

failure = 7 w/ 90lbs

Wrist curls w/ easy bar

failure = 6 w/ 80lb

Was able to keep a good pace throughout the whole workout. Today my chest is on fire (burns so good!!!) haha. Arms are nice and tight. Energy levels are back to normal - i think?-

I am beginning to think that I should move this to the individual training forum, as Moses seems to be abscent. Hopefully he is training harder than he is recording his progress! I mean, I am sure I will win, but I wouldn't mind mocking his attempts to stick with me along the way.

COME ON MOSES!
