    You originally said you haven't experienced any muscle gain/loss so assumed your strength was being maintained. As HT said, you're not really going to do much other than lose weight on such a large...

    It's only been 1 month, what kind of changes were you expecting? 4.7kg and 22% to 20% in a month isn't minimal - altho I wouldn't really trust your gym's electronic bf% measurement.

    It doesn't look too bad IMO, volume might be a bit high (along w/ some of the rep/3 sec neg schemes) so one could prob cut out some of the ISOs if it's too much. But more importantly, why do you...
