    i do calf raises with a bb with the front squat grip and i enjoy the upper back pump more than the actual calf work itself.

    That photo was ~185. 5'7"

    I have not done calf work in years, I have tiny calves and I don't care to waste time.

    Knucks could you go into detail about your cut. Goals, how much strength was lost, what are you going to do next ect . I feel like if I would cut I just don't have enough muscle mass to look like that, I would just look skinny.

    I have done calves maybe three times in the past year. Mostly when I have nothing else to do afterwards/as rest.

    Leg circuits at 5 reps are brutal:
    Front squat, split squats, romanian deadlifts. I know its bro ish but I got the cardio death cough after it so its all good. Gotta acquire VO2max for summer.

    I don't have the figures regarding strength, but lets just say everything is almost back to normal. It got pretty shitty towards the end, the last few weeks, so I just did a bunch of high volume work - hence I can't tell you how much it sucked strength wise.

    I started my cut at 206, got down to 181. A decent amount was just water/bloat - I thought I'd be leaner that I actually ended up being. The initial idea was to drop to 185, but then at 188 I saw that another 3lbs wouldn't matter so I pushed for 180. After a bit of a sauna one day I was 180.2 and figured that was enough.

    Over the next 3 months the plan is to put on 5lbs/month, eventually get to 200-205 again.

    I won't go into much detail on the diet because good stuff isn't free, but no carbs on non-training days otherwise carbs only around training times. I did not cut my carbs at all during the diet, only thing that changed for me was the amount of cardio (read: not much) and fats.

    Ah true. The whole cycle of cutting and gaining seems so exhausting to me. More power to people who can do it though.

    A) You have one hell of a man-crush on Klokov.

    B) What's with the music the Russians play in their training facilities. I swear every vid has some shitty female pop music.

    Man, sleeping on a futon mattress is one of the best decisions I have made in awhile. I havn't slept this good and stayed on my back in a long long time. My fucking right trap still hurts so bad... I hate it!!!
