    Default Start the cut

    With getting an elk tag and wanting to get my walking weight down a bit I am starting up my diet again. There is about 10 of us that are doing an 8 week cut. The goal it to drop 50lbs in the next 8 weeks. That's 6 lbs a week.
    I am cutting out soda (redbull is NOT soda) and going back on a real food diet. More meat and greens. I will also be working in more strongman cardio (tire flips, sled push/pull) to my training.

    332lbs at weigh in.

    Lets get this party started!

    Good luck. Prepare to be a crazy person. Dropping that much weight in that short of time can mess with your hormones. But get after it, it's a good challenge.

    I'm interested. 8 weeks... I can shoot for 20 lbs lost. I'm 228 now, so I'll target 208 by June 9.

    I know what you are saying. The last time I did a hard cut it messed me up for a while. This time its more about eating better and tossing in a lot more cardio. The goal is 50 but I think its going to be more around 35.

    Been doing more cardio.
    Sled push, Med ball, and tire flips are now part of my rest days. I even started looking at doing more cardio training on strongman Saturdays.

    I just want to have as many abs as I do chins.

    Lol. I had a great late workout today but the breakfast sandwich and donuts I just at might not qualify as post workout food.
