    Thanks mate, masters 40+. I'm 43 nearly 44. No eight requirements, I was 78kg and in honestly needed another 2 weeks of prep to really get dialled in.

    Who needs diuretics when you can steal wifeys wine, also might be pissed. All going down tomorrow, be prepared for pics. 3 in my class, 40 competitors in total, going to be a big day. Good luck to everyone.

    Here's the situation 2 days out from D-DAY. The first test was done 10 days prior to starting a 10 week, pre-contest cut. Yep I know, 10 weeks isn't the norm but that's the way life played out and hey, after everything my broken body has been through what's 10 weeks of grind!?! A 1.6kg drop in lean mass but thats the way it goes, not a major in my opinion when I've been zero direct carbs for the last 2 and half weeks. Now it's all down to the bright lights.

    Today's body composition results. One more to do 2 days out. More for my own curiosity and interest as much as anything. Good to see the numbers doing their thing, especially when that self doubt pops up for a chat. 10 week cut may have been a bit ambitious but with everything life has thrown our way, it was the only option.

    Paperwork sorted! 17 days left to get this chubby, broken old body into something resembling a bodybuilder lol.

    Still slogging away. Nothing interesting to report, just cardio and more cardio with a weight session here and there. Down to 83kg, dont have to make weight as such being over 40. However, I reckon I need to drop at least 3kg more to shift that pocket of stubborn fat round my belly button. Carbs are low at the moment, around 70g a day with oats in the morning my only true carb source. Trying to keep fats up over 90g a day, blanched plain peanuts for snacks, MCT oil and fish oils mainly with a feed of fatty fish no and then. The rest is protein, which is sitting above 1g per pound of LBM from food plus 20g of glutamine a day and 3-4 serves of BCAA, consuming some of this during fasted cardio.

    Another boring cardio post! Fasted stairmaster HIIT done. Back down the hill again this evening for some abs/core and more cardio, DREADmill on the menu tonight. Back in shift from tomorrow so that means cardio after my weights session.

    Arms today Dips (bodyweight only) 3x20 Overhead cable extension 3x12 superset with cable pushdowns 3x10 Hammer curl 3x12 Concentration curls 3x10 Single arm pushdowns 3x12 superset with kickbacks 3x12 45 minutes of HIIT on the stairmaster to finish. 95g of carbs by the end of the day, times pre and post workout mostly, just residual carbs from vegetables the rest of the day. 2 days off work as of tomorrow so fasted cardio at dumb-arse o'clock with shoulders in the evening. Refeed planned for tomorrow. Wednesday will be a rest day/double cardio day, fasted in the AM then another session late afternoon with an ab/core circuit afterwards. This should be a good kickstarter after the previous days refeed.
