Precontest training DONE – The weight cut and the process leading in

After my last real training session on 10/15 I started to make my way toward cleaning up my diet and prepping my body for the cut.

If you want to know exactly how I make the drop from 265 down to 242, get this guide: Cutting Weight ebook.

Here is where I started last week, and where I’m at now:

10/18 Saturday (cut out carbs):
BW 268

Light training session
goblet squats: 3×15
One leg DL: 3×15
Band fly: 3×15
band press-down: 3×15
hammer curl: 3×15
Core work
Sled work

10/19 Sunday:
BW 265
Same type of high rep session, basically a full body workout.

10/20 Monday:
BW 263.5
Band fly: 4×15
Band press-down:4×15
Push-up: lots
Floor press: lots
Hammer curl: 3×15
Mcgill big 3

10/20 Tuesday:
BW 261.0
More glycogen depletion and walking. Basically staying active each day, don’t feel too bad really. Better than most cuts that I’ve done, and I’ve done dozens.

I’ll update a little more later today as well as talk openers and gameplan, and talk about the last couple of days that will be leading into weighin.
