Feeling pretty beat up this weak, left leg and right shoulder still acting up. I've decided to take a couple of weeks to deload, light pumpy work, start some cardio. I'm going to run a short cut in mid-Nov for about a month to drop a few pounds now that I've managed to actually carry around some extra muscle for a few months. I've always had an issue with panicking following a growth phase where I add some muscle, and of course, being older and formerly obese, fat. I would go from bulks right into cuts - no waiting, and no real growth. I did some research which suggested my protein was too low and that I wasn't giving my body time to adjust to carrying more muscle and increased nutrition needs.
