Not much, carb nite! woo! To be honest I thought I would be craving carbs way more than I was after almost 2 weeks of keeping under 30g/day. When I had all of it it wasn't as satisfying as thought it would be.

Recap of 20NOV to 10 DEC - Simplest Strength Template

Final numbers:
BW on 20NOV, 2012 = 190
BW on 10DEC, 2012 = 189
DL - 320 x 6, 385 x 1, 335 x 3
press - 95 x 13. 105 x 12, 155 x 1
bench - 200 x 6, 210 x 2
squat - 210 x 13, 225 x 8, 315 x 1

Summary:
-Only a 3 week run through, skipping deload week and rolling straight into another cycle, with Christmas coming up I wont be able to get to a gym for a week and a half during that so I'm just going to hit as much volume as I can handle going up to it
DL - no rep records but consistent, got a little stupid with my singles and I paid for it, next cycle I'm going to redcue the weigth down and rework from scratch, on the 3's and 1's week my back has been killing me so I'm using too much lower back
OH press - rep records for 105 and a nice single that was about medium effort
bench - felt super sluggish unsure if it's due to weight or if it's to the diet
squat - great progress all around, reps and singles

Numbers are looking good from what I've looked over. I didnt go back in your log Are you trying to cut weight or maintain? And other than the last 3 weeks or so I've been out of the gym I haven't really bothered with deloads. Not sure how much of an impact that actually has.

Thanks.

Trying to cut down a lot then hopefully I can reset the BW my body seems to gravitate towards. Right now I seem to tend to want to stay at in the low 190's. I'd like to reset my BW set point to stay in the low 180's know what I mean? To stay in the low 180's I typically have to diet down really hard and watch what I eat all the time. trying to mitigate the sleep apnea stuff.
