Ray Kingsman’s Cutting Log: Week 1 + 2! 5 Pounds Down!

Introduction

What's good guys? Ray Kingsman's back!

Finally here with my cutting log bitches! 

For those of you who do not know what this is, I made an update on my cutting situation

Give that a read if you have not already. Basically, before the cut I was sitting at 203-205 pounds, depending on the day. 

My strength was at an all time high. I was moving a lot weight. 

My endurance was good as well. My bloodworm showed that hormonal levels were back to normal. 

My cholesterol was still a little high though. Around 210. I forget the more specific numbers.  

Other then that, everything else was good. Which was great!

I was eating about 2700 calories before the cut started (with doing cardio 3 times a week). That was my caloric maintenance value. 

So in my Fall 2016 cut, I cut my caloric 2500 to 1700-1800 calories and added 6 cardio (1 hour) fasted morning sessions a week. 

That is a 700-800 calorie drop plus heavy cardio sessions. I lost 18 pounds of straight fat in 9 weeks. 

I am not making as drastic of a caloric drop this time. I decided to start with lower caloric deficit of 400-500 calories. 

So I a eating 2200-2300 calories per day. I cut those calories in carbs too.

Still taking 230 grams of protein per day. 180 grams of carbs per day. 50 grams of fats per day. 

I am also researching T3 at a dosage of 50-60 micrograms/day and ostarine at 12.5 mg/day. Along, with my other muscle building supplements.

Im lifting weights 3 times per week. Plus my cardio regimen is the same as my last cut. 

So now that you are caught up, let's fast forward to my results. 

Ray's Results

So I started the cut at 202-203. So after week 1, I was 199. After week 2, I was 197. 

Fucking awesome! 

However, I did notice somethings. As usual, nothing goes exactly as planned. 

Unforeseen Issues

The first thing is I did lose a bit of strength in the gym over the past two weeks. 

I was not happy about that at all. That what the ostarine is supposed for.

Goddammit. I might need to take a higher dosage. My body might be adjusting to the small from my last cut. 

Therefore, I am not getting the desired effect. 

I have read about this before. Where guys do not get the same effects on their 2nd or 3rd cycle as they did with their first cycle.

I did not think I would have an issue though. 

This just sucks because I did not factor this in at the beginning of the cycle.

I want to cut until the end of October and only planned on researching 12.5 mg/day ostarine. Nothing more.

Therefore, that is all I have supply for. I can always get more but I hate not having budgeted for things in advance. 

I just do not want my strength to keep dipping. That means I am losing muscle and that is just no good dude. 

I honestly think those pounds I lost might have been in muscle. Because I do not any leaner in the mirror. 

You can look at the pictures and judge for yourself. I actually think I look leaner when I started. 

That was the biggest thing I noticed. 

The second thing is I noticed that my resting heart rate was up throughout these two weeks. 

I am not on any fat burner or thermogenic compound either. Because I do not want my heart rate to go up dramatically. 

I think this is probably the T3 going into effect. I think I will be just fine. I just happen to notice it while I was sitting down and doing nothing. 

Anyway, that is all for now. 

This is me after week 1. I do not know why the picture is sideways. I tried a thousand times to change but it keeps uploading this way. My apologies. 

This is me after week 2. Progress being made.

Conclusion

That is all for now in terms of my update.

I am definitely moving forward I'm probably going to up the dosage to 25 mg/day of ostarine per day. 

This will be prevent more muscle and strength. I want to ensure the weight I am losing is only fat. 

Everything else will stay the same. Please let me know what you guys in the comments below. 

I would love to hear your thoughts, feedback, and suggests. 

I will probably post an update every 1-2 weeks so I will keep you guys in the loop on my progress. 

Thanks Rebels,
