My cut off date has finally arrived. I’ve ended my bulk and started my cut, jumping in with a Protein Sparing Modified Fast for a little kick start (lets be honest, I want to be as lean as possible for halloween) and will transition to the normal cutting cycle in a week. I’ve also changed up my diet to include less overall volume and added 20 minutes of cardio after my lifting. I should shed the pounds in no time!
While I’m busy doing that, check out these links from around the web. Some great information underneath those cleverly worded intro sentences.
