Purpose of this log: First off, I’m doing a cut, hence the name diced and peeled. The point of keeping track of this is that I want to keep track of my workouts throughout this cut so I can look back later. Feel free to leave comments or constructive criticism along the way. I started the cut on January 11, 2010, and will complete the cut on April 6, 2010. That’s about a 12 week cut.
Starting stats as of January 11, 2010
Height: 6’0" (183 cm)
Weight: 221 lbs (100.2 kg)
BF%: 21.5% per 3 point caliper test
**Note about my BF% I should say that I’m normally a lot closer to 14% BF but I purposefully gained weight because I wanted to do a weight loss contest at my gym. Tyring to win some cash and the extra BF is a good motivator to get my ass in the gym. I’ve almost always hovered around 14% I would guess cause I can always see my abs pretty decently. When I wrestled I was more like 8-10%. Anyways, it’s not an excuse as to my BF%, it’s just to give you some background. I should be well under 15% in a couple more weeks.
**Training Age: Started 10 years ago and have been on and off since then. Worked to a max bench of 315 and a max dead of 495, but I don’t bench much any more nor do I dead much any more.
Current stats as of February 4, 2010
Age: still 26
Height: still 6’0" (183 cm)
Weight: 210 lbs (95 kg)
BF%: Hopefully less than it was last week. I’ll post some pics tonight and you can tell me what you think I’m at. I’d guess 15 or 16%. I have lost visible amounts of fat in 3.5 weeks though, so that’s good.
Goal ending stats:
Weight: 185 lbs (84 kg)
BF%: 6-8% range
Specifics about my workouts:
Weights I use: As for weights I use, it’s really subjective because a) I’m dieting and b) I haven’t maxed in quite a while, so let the log speak for itself.
Training: Weights: 2 a days using the perfect rep, usually keeping reps under 6 and the workouts under 45 min each (plus warm up and stretching time).
Cardio: Been doing about 2-3 sessions a week of HIIT of some sort. I plan to kick up the cardio as I get closer to my goal.
Specifics about nutrition:
Diet: Thus far, it’s been low cals, and medium to low carbs.
Supplements: I’ve been on the Anaconda protocol and have taken several other supplements. I did HOT-ROX for the first 3 weeks and I’m taking a week off before I jump back on.
