Nothing beats a post-workout beer. I just finished brewing my first successful batch of Coopers dark ale so I'm awash in the stuff. I can't believe everyone doesn't brew their own, it comes out to less than a dollar a liter.

Thursday August 30th

5 minutes rest, fairly easy.

Did a bit of pausing at the top, want to be sure I'm fully in control of the weight at all times.

Down to 171 today.

Tuesday September 4th

Bench
45x10
95x5
135x5
165x5x3


Felt heavy today, deloading a little.

Fack it. Ending my cut. I'm starting martial arts classes and you can't dominate on the mat with a 225 squat. I weighed myself at the gym and on their scale I was 180 with my clothes towards the end of the day. My home scale has me at 174 so it's apparently a little wonky. I'm probably in the 170-172 range, about 16-18% body fat.

Anyway, I'll start with 3000 calories a day, keto except for workout days, and see what happens.

Tuesday September 11th

1.5 Hours JKD

Weight has held steady at 176 this week, so it looks like 3000 cals is indeed my maintenance. Bumping it up to 3500 for this week.
