Hey guys!! Once again, it’s been a week or so since I have last posted, and I have a few new announcements to make.
First off, instead of free lancing my cut I decided to add some pressure by limiting it to a 120 day cycle, which will be fun. It helps me push harder each day, and value them as they are from a workout and dietary point of view. The point of it is to push myself on a daily basis, and it helps me keep intensity instead of having a “get there whenever” mentality. At the end of the day it is still a “you vs you” system regardless of how you organize it, but this way helps me, and I highly recommend you all to give it a shot. Those 120, 16 weeks, or 4 months (however you want to classify it” can propel you to your goals with outstanding results and a new outlook on time. When you consider it four months isn’t a long time, but it can give you results that will last a long time. To make this cut even more intense and rewarding I will completely cut the weekly cheat meal out until it is complete. Cheat meals are fine and great, but they do hinder results to some degree and I want the best results possible. I will do a follow up on how cutting out the cheat meal worked for me and if I noticed any difference without it.
I have also decided to start logging my workouts for the rest of my 120 cycle. Logging your workouts is a great way to observe your progression and to visually see where your weaknesses are. I recommend it to anyone, and if you have a Calorie tracking app you could even log it into your workout log. That way if you aren’t on your desired pace you can look back on your previous work, and make adjustments where they are necessary, instead of “winging it.” I am on day 7 right now, but I still have a ton to go so I will start adding my work out of the day on the end of each new post, just to benefit anyone looking to try a new work out.
On top of all this I am going to incorporate more variations to my routine. My lifting routine will vary week to week, but the rep range will stay consistent, and the same for my cardio routine. It will still be 30 minutes to an hour but I will do different things just to keep it interesting and challenging at the same time. The variations are a way to get out of a strict routine. Routines that are repetitive eventually get boring, and nothing ruins results and progress like a boring routine. You must enjoy what you are doing to get the most out of it. If you don’t enjoy it then you will eventually give up. Enjoyment doesn’t mean easy, it should always be a challenge. If you aren’t challenged, then you are wasting your time.
To give credit where it is due the idea comes from one of my favorite youtubers, Nava the Beast, I would highly recommend anyone looking to get fit, watch motivational videos, or enjoy military related content to give him a subscribe.
That is pretty much it for the announcements. I will do weekly updates on how this cut is going and how the anti-cheat meal benefits me, until then make sure to give me a follow on snap, Instagram and twitter for updates on motivation.
