Another early morning session today with daughter in tow...

Session 4

Incline Bench Press

40kg x 10
80kg x 5
100kg x 5
120kg x 2
135kg x 1
dead incline, 60 second rests
130kg x 1
130kg x 1
120kg x 1
120kg x 1
120kg x 1
120kg x 1
back to normal
100kg x 7
100kg x 7
80kg x 15

I am appalling at incline bench, considering the difference between my bench and incline I think its something worth hammering, chest was really feeling these, a missing link in my lifting I think, need to be repping 140kg really.

Wide Grip Decline Hammer Press

100kg x 12 rep pb
100kg x 10
120kg x 6 rep pb
drop
100kg x 5
drop
80kg x 5

Now I have the seat set just right these feel epic, pump in chest is crazy, got a nice contraction each rep. Really trying to focus on pecs hard as I lift as they are a weakness I need to bring up.

Low Cable Crossovers

15kg x 20
25kg x 10
25kg x 9
25kg x 8

Focused on bringing together at lower chest and got a very hard squeeze each rep, pump was very good.

Hammer Grip Vertical Chest Press

90kg x 10
90kg x 8
90kg x 7
drop
75kg x 4
drop
50kg x 6

Brutal drop set at then end, chest was pumped and battered!

Dumbbell Hammer Curls

25kg x 9 rep pb
20kg x 12
20kg x 12 volume pb

Vascularity and pump was incredible, I have never looked like this lol! Strong and nice reps.

EZ Concentration Curls

30kg x 12
30kg x 12
30kg x 12

Crazy pumps..held a hard contraction every rep and these hurt big time, minimal rests.

Close Stance Leg Press - 60-90 second rests

280kg x 22 rep pb
280kg x 15
280kg x 13
280kg x 11
280kg x 8
280kg x 8 + 9 partials to failure Volume PB

These hurt so bad, minimal rest periods and high reps utterly trashed my quads, felt great, veins out all over quads.

Leg Extensions - 75 sec rests

80kg x 10
80kg x 10
80kg x 10
80kg x 10
80kg x 10
80kg x 10

Nail in the coffin on quads here, I had to stretch out before I could attempt walking away from the machine.

Abs will be done tomorrow morning.

SSCV

60 minutes incline treadmill - reduced speed but massively upped angle today...painful tbh but did the job.

Session done...tomorrow morning will be abs and cardio, maybe a few other movements for weak areas, will see what time I have.

Weekly Weigh In:

Last week: 207lbs
Waist: 32 3/4

This week: 205lbs
Waist: 32 1/4"

Smallest my waist has every been...even when I was like sub 80kg. Sitting at 92.9kg, heaviest and leanest together by far.

So in 17 weeks:

Start: 244lbs
Waist: 44 1/4"

Today: 205lbs
Waist: 32 1/4"

Total loss of 39lbs just under 2.3lbs a week
Total waist reduction of 12" 0.7" a week

Strength has held well, some things have dropped a little but not by masses, some things have flown right up. My fitness has soared, I am aerobically very fit now as well as strong still so I really have to say the cut so far is a success. Looking in the mirror I am very vascular and cuts coming through well, at a sheer guess i'd say I am 6 weeks out show wise tops, though that is a guess tbh.

How long I am going to keep going for I don't know, i'm not massively struggling tbh so I may go another few weeks before a slow reverse diet. I don't want to jump right back to maintenance, I want this off season to be lean as possible and get calories higher slowly and steadily so will add back in at 100kcal a day per week, reduce cardio from 5 x 60 minutes to 4 x 30 minutes and slowly come back out of a deficit and start adding some lean mass. But for now I am going to continue the cut...i'm liking being very lean.

Alright skinny, what have you done with the "fat" powerlifter that used to log here? Amazing progress mate and strength is still there, very impressive. I've not been into you log recently but have been following on social media, you just go from strength to strength.

Do you have an end is sight yet for this epic cut?

Cheers boys, appreciated Happy

Getting tough now but I think I am going for 3 more weeks to hit 21 weeks then go for my photo shoot before reverse dieting back out Happy

Life is crazy busy these days, new online coaching business taking off and along with current day job, cut and family I am pushed to the limits but loving it!

I am stopping logging here as this site appears dead these days and i'm no longer a pure strength athlete so seems little point. My main log is on MT and everything else will be on my YouTube Vlog and IG/FB boys so will catch you on there Happy
