Started a cut in January, was weighing 218 now at 207.

Now my question is usually how long does it take to start noticing you are losing fat in the stomach? I see progress everywhere but there lol. I do abs or core three times a week, I guess I just need to be patient.

It is typically the last place to go. You will notice it if you are keeping track of skinfolds, and circumference, but visually speaking, it will likely take a while before you notice anything profound.

How would I go about keeping track of skinfolds, I am guessing about the circumference it would just be me measuring it weekly or every two weeks?

You would need to buy a set of calipers.

As for circumference, yes, measure it every few weeks. Need a tailors tape.

Doesn't have to be anything super fancy. Something like this is fine.

Haha it has been a struggle definitely to get there but putting in work is the only way.

Tomorrow I will attempt 225 deadlifting, second time I deadlift with heavy weight. Was trying to work on form more then anything to not hurt myself the first few times. Hope to be deadlifting 315 by end of March, I have been reading that you tend to lose some strength while on a cut, don't know how true that is but I will keep pushing forward.

Keep lifting and you shouldn't lose much strength, don't get to worried if you do though as it will come back quick.

Currently down to 190lbs from like 215ish around New Years. Dropped my carbs down low for a couple weeks and started feeling like shit. Doing a refeed once a week now and feeling a lot better. Feel like 180lbs will be a good weight to end my cut and start working on my lifting goals instead.

Yeah that is what my buddy was telling me, he said keep lifting and once you are ready to maintain and then bulk you will regain the strength pretty quick.

I am slowly cutting out carbs every two weeks I count my macros so it has been really helping out and making adjustments as needed. I just need to invest in a body fat caliper and start tracking my progress with that along with my weight, weighed in at 205 this morning, down 13 pounds since January 2nd.

You can google pictures of body fat percentages to get an idea.

I didn't intentionally cut out carbs, just kept forgetting about them in my meals. Went through a break up so have just been making chicken/broccoli and keeping fats up with peanut butter lol.

I struggle with meeting my daily fat intake, supposed to be eating no more then 75 grams of fat a day. But never have a issue with protein though or carbs. But slowly but surely weight is steadily dropping.

2 things

1 - My gf is having trouble trying to do basic squats even without weights. I try to guide her with the basics like keeping feet flat and not letting your knees go past your feet, she either doesn't have the balance or something because she can't keep her feet flat. Any tips?

2 - We have a 10lb medicine ball, any good suggestions on 1v1 core workouts besides the toss and handoff?

Posted this in the wrong thread:

I haven't been to the gym in about a week. Gonna take off next week as well. Once the time changes for everyone else, I get to go back to my steady work schedule. Once that happens on 3/9, I'm going to hit the gym hard as fuck for the next 5 months or so.....but I feel like a lethargic pile of shit missing 2 weeks.

Try some hip stretches and maybe go wider with the stance?

Weighted planks, leg raises, rope crunches(no idea of the correct name) for abs.

She's doing weighted lunges, hamstring curls, leg extension, and leg raises. We also do sets of 20 second wall sits. Just can't get her to squat

stand straight, look up when going down usually works.

Personally, I would just leave her. If she can't do a squat, she cant be trusted.

yea, so when I try to have her keep her feet flat she falls backward,


she's not out of shape or deformed lol, she does all other exercises fine with no apparent lack of motion. I don't think she has bad balance, this has been very perplexing
