BW:81.1kg (Day 20/21)

Kind of adapting to low carbing. I'm considering taking creatine early but my plan is to wait til later. I do think creatine is THE killer supplement now having tried without it. It doesn't just give rapid increases in performance and size - but training with creatine long term is where the real gains lie. Most studies probably don't take that into account though. It allows you you to consistently train and recover better and over an extended period of time, it really pulls you away. Similar argument prob for preworkouts like caffeine. I managed to get by on 100mg of caffeine per day when i was training hard but i could have gone the other way and approached 800mg like KF to really get the most out of my organism.  Nevertheless for now im going to stay off creatine and will be tapering off caffeine to between 0-100mg, come end of cut.

BW:81.3kg (Day 21/21)

BS 6x90, 6x96, 6x90

Every rep was brutal. Need carbz soon halp. Was thinking of going for a run but didn't in the end. Feeling a bit beat up. Ending the cut with a refeed on the next workout.

Tuesday
BW:81.2kg (Day 22/22)

OHP 6x50, 3x53.5, 4x3x53.0, 3x53.5
Chinup 5x5xBW(cheated the last reps tbh, when did i get so bad at chins)
 
Well that will do it. Another successful cut and i know that because i went from 2D to 1D. Going to add some carbs, water and food weight and hopefully will fill out a bit for the holiday next week. Got pretty bad anxiety / depression through this cut, that was the hardest part, hunger wasnt an issue, nothing else really just felt really miserable. If i cut again im thinking maybe the 2nd week of Jan? Not sure, will see.

Wednesday
BW:81.2kg (Day 0/0)

Post refeed only weighing 81.2kg is surprising. But i'll take it. I think Dec will be a write off for training b/c i'm away from wednesday and i come back mid Dec then get my wisdom teeth removed. Depending on how that goes recovery wise, my goal will be just to keep myself in the same sort of shape i am now and pick up from there when im back to 100%. Tapering off caffeine starting today, going from 600mg/day to 200mg today, and 100mg tmr.

OHP 6x40, Push Up 3x8xbw, Curls 3x8x20kg
Walk - 10k steps for day

Light workout day after having 4 wisdom removed. Dentist was a star so no pain or discomfort but his drug protocol could use some work. Mf wrote me a script for Oxycontin .. that stuff is nasty, i threw up my dinner. Not taking anymore and as it happens, i didnt need any pain relief leave alone something that powerful.

kind of annoyed, i had no idea because my family picked up the scripts and i never actually saw the script (it was after the op), but it just makes me shake my head. i didnt even remember taking the oxy just saw i googled 'side effects' aroudn when i threw up. i was already off my mind with the drugs they gave me during the op so it was unncessary. And in addition to that i have been given two boxes of codapane Forte 500/30(paracetemol, codeine) which i haven't touched. why do i need so many pain killers? it's over kill. i would have understood saying here is a script IF you need it but just take panadol. so i have 3 boxes of painkillers i havent touched basically but im not really at risk of opioids so no harm done.

ya man it's crazy.

and good that you threw it up and stayed off em`. not worth taking unless in some true extreme pain i'd guess. seems too risky.

recover quick!

pc!

Thursday
BW: 80.9kg

BS 6x70, 3x90, 2x100, 5x3x90
OHP 6x40
Run 2.5km @ <6:00 pace, 2.5km ~ 6:00pace

Well im going to start taking running a bit seriously. tried to push a sub <30 pace and managed the first half but i had nothing left in the take. took a minute or so to relock the GPS then ran back at just over the goal pace. I've handicapped myself right now with mostly liquid diet and reduced carbs .. hopefully when i start eating normally i can shave a couple of minutes. But for what it's worth im starting the season at at a supra 30 pace .. which gives me a LONG road ahead to the holy grail of sub 20.
