    I'm happy. I'm going to going to start cutting on Monday.

    Over the last month I went from 170lbs to 185lbs, gain stregnth and lost love handles.

    thanks. I was eating like absolute shit until about 2 weeks ago. This is what I've been doing for the past two weeks (but not really nailing it every day).

    Cardio, none

    Breakfast - Oats + Water + Protein Shake (40g)
    10:30am - Protein Shake (40g)
    Lunch - 6oz Chicken Sandwhich on wheat + Tomato
    Snack - Protein Shake (40g)
    Dinner - Fish, Steak, or Chicken + Brown Rice + Steamed Veggies.
    Before bed - Protein Shake (40g)

    My plan for the next 4 weeks (starting Mon.) is going to be pretty much the same diet except I'm going to eat only a 4oz chicken brest or steak for lunch and some spinach and do about 20 minutes of cardio a day.

    Should that cut me up some?

    Plan to :bigthumb:

    It helps to see a pic like this to let me know that I actually have lost something and done so pretty quickly.

    Anyone have any specific routines to use while cutting? I couldn't find anything in the archives (I think I got the diet part down).

    Here's my current routine

    Monday, Back
    Deadlifts
    Bent-over One Arm Rows
    Wide-grip pullups
    Cable Rows

    Tuesday, Chest
    Bench Press
    Incline DB Press
    Decline Bench
    Pec-Fly

    Wed, Biceps
    EZ-Bar Preacher Curls
    One Arm Preacher Curls
    Oval Bar Hammer Curls
    Concentration Curls

    Friday, Triceps + Shoulders
    Skull Crushers
    Close-grip Bench Press
    One Arm DB Tricep Press
    Arnie Press
    One Arm Rear Delt Flies
    Front DB Raises

    Sat, Legs
    Inverted Leg Press
    Quad Raises
    Laying Hamstring Curls
    Calf Raises
    (I know I should squat but I have a knee injury from my HS Cross-Country days that kills me to the point where I can barely walk the day after I squat)

    Just wanted to see if there's anything I should perhaps adjust.

    I think between being extremely stict with my diet and throwing in a little cardio here and there I should see some pretty good results in the next few months.

    I've only been seriously working out since September. When I started I was benching something around 105lbs x 10 for 3 sets, now I'm at 155lbs x 8 for 3 sets. I moving from :greddy: to :mamoru:

    That's amazing! I've had love handles for awhile now and I didn't know how to get rid of them, but now I do! Now, I know it's foolish to expect to lose them in the same time you got them, so I won't.

    uh...no...you don't. You probably have the same amount of fat as I do. You know the difference, I have much more muscle under it. You need to get some muscle before you cut.

    Being skinny won't help that. Muscle will. Totalling 1000+ in the big three does alot more for your mentality then having sub 10% bf. If you have sub 10% bf with no muscle that makes you a twig. If you total big numbers and have some fat it makes you a powerlifter.
