    Weigh in today: 206.
    I have lost 59 pounds on this cut.
    Some of that is muscle and that is really bugging me.

    I have lost some size.
    Arnold wrote of this in some of his books as to a size drop due to bf% reduction for competition and how it impacted competitors.

    This level of cutting to get shredded is required for natural bodybuilding competition.
    The average weight of a competitor is between 185 and 195 pounds and guys that win usually come in shredded.

    Anyone that disrespects natural bodybuilding as not being real bodybuilding can feel free to run a natural contest prep and compete as a natural.
    Their attitude will change.

    I am going to use Hammer Strength machines for upper body to see if it will help resolve the biceps tendonitis and delt strain problem I have.

    During this session I noticed a reduction in biceps/delt pain during all exercises and I was able to increase intensity through negatives.
    I was able to go heaver than I could when using free weights.
