    Legs and Back this morning

    205kg x 1
    225kg x 1
    245kg x 1
    ** 10kg heavier than last week. Still very comfortable but I can tell I’m dieting now, I didn’t feel great on the sets working up. 255kg next time though
    *** Comfortably down to notch 7 on my belt. Never been this low before

    3 sec pause squat:
    185kg 4 sets of 2

    Narrow stance squat (6 inch between heels):
    100kg x 25

    Pulldowns superset with Barbell shrugs:

    85kg x 15

    Finished

    Good session. Still performing well in the gym

    Had a cheat meal last night due to squatting today and I’ll probably have another tonight as it’s Saturday but other than that will stick to the diet until next Saturday night now

    Food has been more than at work since I’ve been off but the amount I’m training I’m not gonna worry about it. I’ll be very restrictive during my 3 rest days and as restrictive as I can manage on training days. Performance in the gym is actually the main thing for me, if I get that right the fat loss, fitness and improved looking physique will come

    Back/Legs today

    30kg 3 x 25

    Deadlift (superset with 25 Pulldowns (20kg) after every set):
    105kg x 6
    105kg x 6
    145kg x 3
    145kg x 3

    245kg + 55kg band - 300kg at top x 1
    185kg + 35kg band - 220kg x 10

    * 300kg at the top was comfortable. Strength is still in the ballpark of where it was (all time deadlift PB is 324kg)

    Bent over row superset with Low Cable row:
    6 supersets

    Squat:
    60kg x 8

    180kg x 8

    Finished

    Good session. Happy with where my strength is at considering I’m cutting and only running trt.
    Bailed on the idea of upping test to 250mg a week, there’s no need atm, 125mg a week is doing the job, I’ll up it when/if I stagnate

    3 rest days coming up now

    That's what I've always wondered about test and cutting. I figure 250 would aid in retaining more muscle for you but wouldn't a downside be more water retention and possible estrogenic burden?

    I guess everyone handles it different so what has 250 done for you in the past?

    It was purely being considered as a means to preserve strength and muscle whilst cutting

    But clearly 125mg a week is ample as I’m still performing well as of now. That may change when I get a bit further down in to the 240’s

    I hear ya there. I had endless energy at 25%+ bf, much more than on PEDs around 10%. Sure test would be more effective but yeah I can totally see why you might end up throwing some more in just for that "get up and go".

    Legs/Back day today. Kept it pretty light as was not feeling recovered from Deadlifts/Squats on Tuesday. Back felt fucked up after being at work for 4 days (need a day in between finishing work and squatting in future)

    Squat (superset with 15 Pulldowns after every set):

    Warmups:
    60kg x 8
    60kg x 8
    105kg x 5
    105kg x 5
    145kg x 3
    165kg x 2

    Work sets:
    185kg for 3 x 5
    145kg for 2 x 10

    Cable row (squeeze contraction for 2 seconds):
    5 x 12

    85kg Sandbag Load:
    6 x 6

    45 degree pulldown to lower abdomen:
    2 x 20

    Finished

    Pretty light weights used but ended up being pretty hard due to fatigue, low carbs all week and fairly high reps. Upper body stuff tomorrow

    Chest and Triceps today. Also did a bit of conditioning stuff to finish

    Dips (bodyweight x 15) superset with Tricep pushdown (15kg x 20):
    5 supersets

    Weighted Dips (superset with 20 reps on pushdowns (10kg) after every set):
    +20kg x 12
    +40kg x 12
    +50kg x 12
    +50kg x 10

    Band crossover (2 black bands x 15-20) superset with bodyweight dips (failure):
    4 supersets

    130kg sandbag load:

    Sit-ups:
    2 x 25

    Finished. Pretty good session

    Left trap/neck area has been very stiff and painful for a week now (can’t turn my head), not sure what it is but it’s not improving. Will try and get some Naproxen from docs to see if it eases off, if it doesn’t I’ll have to actually rest it a bit which I don’t really wanna do
