I genuinely googled "the river swole" after you said it, though. A river swale exists.

If it doesn't have a name, I vote for calling it dat valley.

Cut - Day 9

Man cannot remake himself without suffering; for he is both the marble and the sculptor.

Back & Traps:

Back -

One arm hammer row -
50kg X 12, 8

Hammer row -
80kg X 7, 6, 5

Lap pulldown -
60kg X 10, 8, 8, 7, 6

Barbell row -
75kg X 10, 8, 6

Deadlift -
120kg X 7, 6

Traps:

160kg X 6, 4

Had planned to do more trap work, although I was pretty much out of gas after the deadlifts, and those two sets finished me off. Got some weight through them with the deadlifts and shrugs, and at the minute that's all that matters.

Pretty good workout, all things considered. Only had a couple hours sleep and was up at 3am for work... So that didn't help.

Also, my calorie intake, or lack thereof, obviously isn't conducive to monster sessions.

out of curiosity, why not have the compound at the start of the workout?

Originally I didn't plan on deadlifting, although when I finished my barbell rows I though 'YOLO' why not deadlift...

Thinking about it, I'm glad I didn't dead-lift first. By dead-lifting last, my back was already really fatigued, and so 'light' weight took my back to failure. If I did it first I would have had to use a lot more weight to take my back to failure, which would obviously be a lot more taxing, especially given how little energy I have. It probably would have resulted in a few sets of dead-lifts, a lay down and then an early shower.

Monday 16th December 2013 - International Chest Day

Cut - Day 11

Bodyweight - 84.9kg

Feeling beastly today. Had a high(er) calorie day yesterday. Low carb as I wanted to remain in ketosis, although I upped my fat intake quite a bit. Feeling a lot more energetic as a result and it's going to power me through the remaining 6 days.

Looking a little leaner/more defined, especially in the upper body.

Decided to end my little mini cut. Couldn't stay away from dem gainz, needed to get back. :awesome: At the last weigh in I was down to just below 85kg, started at 90kg.

Take away water weight and I reckon I lost about 2kg of actual weight, which isn't too bad for 11 days work.

I remember reading somewhere (I think it was an article on T Nation) that there is a 'valid' bulk/cut cycle that people follow that goes something along the lines of, bulk 4 weeks cut 1 week, repeat. I think the logic behind it is, unless you're going OTT when you bulk, you're only going to gain 2-3 lbs of fat(max) in that 4 weeks, and you can easily lose that in 1 week, without really having to worry about muscle loss from dieting for a prolonged period of time. No idea quite how legitimate/beneficial it is though, but it's an interesting idea nonetheless.

It was a very slow and hard 3/4 of a rep, I'm not selling myself short, it all counts! To be fair, it was a pull rep using my normal range of motion (just short of lock out) although to re-rack you need to fully lock out, hence not quite hitting 8. Spotter to the rescue! Glad I chose my spotter well...

Nope. I used to, although I never really found they did much. They hit my shoulders a lot too, more so than my chest I would say. It's the same with the pec deck, it hurts my shoulders to use it, sadly.

I just stick to pressing, I go below parallel when dumbbell pressing, so that gives me a nice stretch.

I would like to incorporate some cable crossovers, but the gym doesn't have one. In the future I may mess around doing one arm cable crossovers from a pulley station, although I'm no way near advanced enough to need to worry about anything like that at the time being.
