Today concludes my fisrt week of the cut. I'm eating 2000 calories per day. 150-180 g protein. I've been lifting in the 15 rm range this week, and will go to the 10s next, lasting two weeks. Then, 5's etc. At the conclusion of the cycle, I'll evauate weight and decide on repeating 10s, 5s, post 5s, or sticking in the heavy 5s. I went from 172 to 166.5 this week. Pretty typical for the first week of a cut, and post holiday dieting. I expect slower losses after this week.
