    Crisis of motivation over, checked in at 79.3kg this morning. I'll stick this diet out a little longer yet

    Took a scoop of mesomorph 2.0 plus an additional 200mg caffeine preworkout. Won't be using mesomorph again until I stop cutting though. Don't want water retention from creatine messing with the scales. Plus I've got all the caffeine, beta alanine and aakg a boy could want courtesy of *******rients.

    16th June Legs and Delts 79.3kg

    Squats 110kg 6,3,3
    Barbell Press 55kg 5,3,2
    Deadlift 130kg 7,5,4 (wrist strength back to 100% )
    Upright Row 50kg 5,4,3
    SLDL 70kg 14,10,10
    Lunge 40kg 9,5,5

    I'm heading to a personal trainer on Wednesday for a consultation. She (yes she) owns her own fitness studio and has been competing as a fitness model for the past 10 years. I'll be interested to hear her point of view on my methods and results so far. If I think she knows what she's talking about I might make it a more regular appointment, also with her contacts within the bodybuilding scene in Adelaide she might even know some other people who could really help.

    Very tough workout, energy levels were very low after a long day at work. Not even a scoop of mesomorph + 200mg of caffeine could get me up and about.

    19th June Pecs and Tris 79.2kg

    Barbell Bench Press 90kg 4,3,3
    Cable Tricep Pushdown 45kg 5,4,2
    Incline Barbell Bench Press 65kg 6,4,3
    Tricep Dips +22kg 7,3,3
    Cable Cross Overs 35kg 8,4,3
    One armed DB Tricep Extension 25kg 4, 20kg 7,4

    In other news I'm going ketogenic for the next month at least, general consensus seems to be that means a maximum of 50g of carbs per day. Is this accurate? I'll probably try and stay at 20g-30g for the first week anyway.

    Her lack of knowledge was disappointing in the extreme.

    Depends on your overall intake, but I think the consensus is that sub 100g are ketogenic. Better to go too high, at first, until you know how your body reacts.

    Neck didn't get any better over the weekend, went to a physio on Monday and I had strained ligaments in my C4 and C5 vertebrae. Cause is most probably at work (pinning the phone to my ear) then aggravated at the gym on Friday morning.

    Felt better by Wednesday so I had another appointment with the physio who gave me the green light to get back into training. I've done a couple of light sessions in the last 2 days.

    I've also decided that since my primary goal is fat loss lifting super heavy isn't really that beneficial as it puts my body under enormous strain and probably prevents me from shedding fat as quickly as I otherwise could. So I'll probably stick with the lighter weight until I hit my fat loss goal anyway.

    My muscles (in particular abs) are really flat from the lack of glycogen but I'll post up some progress photos anyway.

    The great cut of 2013 is over. It was starting to mess with my mind too much and I was seriously struggling with motivation despite getting results. I was also being a grumpy boring piece of **** and I'm glad to **** that **** off for a while.

    Gonna go maintenance (give or take a few cals) until my holiday at the end of August. I'll not give a **** on holidays but still try and hit 200g of protein a day and workout as often as possible.

    I'll give a keto another crack when I get back from holidays, learnt some good lessons in the 2 week experimentation.

    Weight gaining way too fast, cutting back on calories and creatine consumption to get a better idea of where I stand. I also seriously struggled to get through my workout today and ended up doing my SLDL and Lunges with just the bar. Might give myself a leaner week in terms of calories and lifting.

    I thought coming out of my calorie deficit and moving into maintenance/surplus+mesomorph would instantly put me into strength gains mode, unfortunately this hasn't really proven to be the case. That combined with the fact I went slightly overboard with my calories last week and I've actually put weight (most probably fat) without gaining any strength. Got me a bit down in the dumps so I'm readjusting my expectations and methods, hoping to find the right mix for strength and aesthetic gains.

    Back training HAM after a very rocky period before I went on holiday (because of either burnout or depression I stopped producing adrenalin and endorphins from physical activity) doing a bit of a bulking diet and doing a light/heavy combined with a 3 day split (also switched back to separating muscles synergists as much as possible in order to maximise my lifts) doing 3 days on one day off. Considering that potentially makes no sense here's what it looks like in reality.

    Heavy
    Back and Triceps

    Light
    Legs and Delts

    Heavy
    Chest, Biceps and Abs

    Rest

    Light
    Back and Triceps

    Heavy
    Legs and Delts

    Light
    Chest, Biceps and Abs

    Rest

    Might seem unnecessarily convoluted but so far I feel great and I've been staking the strength back on. I still want to include some cardio as well but I'm still trying to find a way to make it fit.

    To give you an idea of how ****ed up **** was when I was trying to train without adrenalin and endorphins. I went from being able to squat 110kg for 6 reps to 60kg for 6 reps pretty much overnight. Glad to be back, it was pretty scary there for a while, I thought I might have done some permanent damage.

    I'll load up all my previous workouts tonight.

    Back again after a 6 month break between January and June I'm starting to hit my straps again.

    Still doing a leangains style 8 on 16 off eating pattern but there have been some other drastic changes to my eating pattern.

    >I've moved to a relatively strict LCHF (low carb high fat)
    >drinking bullet proof coffee for both brain function and fat burning benefits
    >Performing quite a bit of cardio, not much steady state mainly HIIT. Either tabata training on the cross trainer post workout or I'll go for a run around my house (5.5k) with 3 big uphill sprints at the end
    >I'll sometimes complete the 5.5k run (with sprints) in the morning and combine it with a 24 hour fast (won't eat til dinner)
    >don't use myfitnesspal or monitor my macros nearly as closely anymore, like I said I'm just going LCHF and not worrying too much about calories
