the last 2 months were spent trying to add some more muscle mass. overall, i put on about 5 lbs to get back up to 248. that is great, because my initial goal was to end this cycle without going over 250. the best change i made to meet that goal was to start drinking water at lunch instead of soda. the trade off is that i doubled the amount of protein i've been supplementing with from 75-100 grams a day, to 150-200 a day. most of that weight went to my chest, traps, and arms. back is still being held up by a nagging injury near the left lat/ribs. legs didn't grow much, but are starting to regain some strength.
now i'm going to start a fat loss cycle for about 3.5 weeks. mostly cardio, minimal weights, and a reduced calorie diet. think i got protein starved last time, so i'll probably keep supplementing 100 grams a day. that means i'll be cycling off creatine, zma, and other supplements.
