    decided to do some hack squats leg press today to let the back rest

    8 plates and some change on each side was a piece of cake. Still skinny enough to wear modern slim pants in a 48/32 jeans size.

    Only downside is that my knee has been tender, probably because of hyper extending on my zerchers like a moron :embar:

    I think I'm probably around 9-10% BF right now. I eat the same few things every day and at approx 700 cals below maintenance. I'll be getting stricter(weighing more vigorously, bodybugg, recording) in the coming weeks.

    +1 on you owning a sansa clip. the best gym mp3 player imo.

    my clip is about 6 years old now and still going strong. i dont even have the new version, just an OG 1g black clip. still works good, although i wish it was easier to toggle shuffle on/off.

    i've got 3 now. 2 for my backpacking and one for the gym. the new version has a better clip, but is a bit more battery draining because of the color screen. still, i've gotten all three for under $100. Can't beat that.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb here and suggest 90% of the material out there recommends doing the exact opposite of "cutting volume" on a deficit. Maybe your verbage sucks. There's a difference between an inevitable loss of ability and preemptively cutting volume.

    Like a long deload? That's a sure fired way to lose strength. You maintain intensity and cut volume (same weight, same reps, significantly less sets). If its good enough for Lyle McDonald its good enough for me.

    Lean gains recommends reverse pyramid training on a cut, which is pretty low volume.

    You're an idiot. The question clearly implies what he lifts not if he lifts
