BW - 74.5

40 min stationary bike

Notes

On top of wanting to get lean for funsies and for one arm chin goals, I had also started to have some higher BP numbers (in the mid-high 120s cystolic) pretty regularly, but I'm now regularly in the low-mid 110s, so that's nice! Glad it only took a few kg of loss to get there.

BW - 74.1

Leg Curl
96x12 + 82x11 + 75x9 + 68x11 + 61x13

Cybex Hack
85 x 9, 9 [should maybe push the RPE a bit harder here]

Incline Machine
55 x 11 9
50 x 10

Incline Fly
15 x 13, 11 [think I had been cutting ROM a bit previously, hence drop off here]

Dips

10 mins elliptical [~170bpm] + 10 mins incline walk

Notes

"Worst" workout in a while but still solid. Attributing that to poor sleep last few days plus the recent weight drop.

Pretty easy to get heart rate to a tempo-ish level on the elliptical.

Well, that's a low weigh in. Celebrating Chinese New Year with my wife today, so lots of food and not too concerned about diet, so tomorrow will probably not be another sub 74 weigh in.

BW - 73.6

Stationary bike 45 mins [bit higher intensity this time, though my bike's screen display is busted so I have no idea what the actual output was]

Notes

Well, the higher RPE + sissy squats had the intended effect, and my quads are like 8/10 sore today, love it.

BW - 73.4

A - Smith Machine Good Morning
80 x 9
70 x 11
70 x 8 + 60 x 5

B - Sissy Squat
+10 x 10, 9
+10 x 7 + BW Reverse Nordic x 8

HS Iso Incline
45 x 14
45 x 11 + 35 x 9 + 30 x 7

Flat DB Flye
10 x 10, 9 [angle feels like it allows me to get a deeper stretch than incline, also going up higher hence rep dropoff. easier to track if i do the full rom]

OH Cable Extension
23x16 + 18x7 + 13x7 + 8x8 + 6x9 [the drop off here is so stark -- anyway feel a much better connection/pump/etc than the machine, for whatever reason]

Lateral
65x11 + 55x10 + 45x10 + 40x8 + 35x8 + 30x6

Dips
BW x 20 + 9 + 6

20 mins cardio [half moderate incline walking, half fairly intense on elliptical]

Notes

Was kind of dreading this workout, but went well. Going to do one day where I do GMs + sissy squat super set, then the other day the leg curl + hack squat. Make sure I hit the rectus femoris with the sissies and glutes with GMs, then the bicep femoris gets some love with the leg curls.

Last week I averaged like ~2450 kcal because of birthday + Chinese New Year, hence sticking in the mid-high 73s. Back to pushing this week. Goal is ~69kg. Abs are starting to come in. It's funny, I get veins in my lower abs before I get a six proper defined six pac. Also my ass always holds fat so long lol. My arms looked gnarly in the gym lighting with the tricep and delt pump today though  :P

Notes

That's ties the least assistance I've ever done an OAC with, but last time I did a -5kg one I was ~69kg and not actively cutting. Optimism grows.

Losing weight faster while eating the same kcal as at the start of the diet, weight loss is so weird and unpredictable. Still, confident it's mostly fat since lifts are staying stable or progressing, and my daily protein intake is generally >150g, so the core boxes are being checked.

Notes

Was 72.4 yesterday. I still think I will be ~73 tomorrow. Tues/Wed/Thur all slightly anomalous. Tue/Wed dinner was more calories dense/lower volume than usual, and last night I had more liquid calories than usual, so think "true" stable weight is a bit higher. Anyway, am definitely getting to the phase where I transition into being actually lean (at least relative to my own set point, etc), and am starting to feel hungry more often. Still got energy and lifting is going well, but just noting it.

Not hungover today (liquid calories), but felt a little less than 100%, so reduced volume slightly. Strength still there.

Thin I will reduce load on the leg curls like I did today -- think to move the 96 weight I don't get into as good of a stretched position, and it becomes like a "seated lying leg curl" which defeats the point.

Very happy to get 95 for 9 reps on hacks.
