‘Diamond Cutter’ Program Wrap Up

Screen Shot 2018-05-26 at 9.05.18 AM

If you’ve made it this far you have earned my respect. You walked with Wittig! I started this program with an official weigh-in of 205.2 and I was over 206 the week before the program. My final weigh-in is 183.2- a 22 pound loss in 12 weeks. Here are a few photos comparing the beginning of the program to the final Week 12. I will have proper Before/After photos here soon.

I plan to hit the natural pro stage in 4 weeks from today and be 5lbs heavier than I was last fall. As a natural athlete that is a huge feat. So the big question is…what’s next?

What I am doing next:

Since I am competing in 4 weeks I will stick to this same protocol for the next 3 weeks and then start to make slight changes 7-10 days out from the contest which is called ‘Peak Week’ which I will outline in a future article. So if you are competing here soon stick to plan.

What you should do next:

De-load Week: Regardless if you plan to continue cutting or gaining your body needs some rest after 12 weeks of beat downs. This next week work at 60% volume and intensity. Go through the full range of motion, but not super intense. This is to keep the results we have, but allow the body and nervous system to rest and reset so we can attain higher goals in the weeks and months to come.

Don’t flip flop! My biggest advice is to not go back and forth between cutting and gaining every 2-3 months. You will get nowhere that way. It takes a long time to build muscle. My last gaining cycle was 7 months and you know what….it wasn’t long enough. Yes, I did gain muscle, but remember I am intense and extreme. Not everybody can get those kind of results. For my next gaining cycle I will take ALL of 2019 off and not compete again until 2020. So decide if you are cutting or gaining and stick to your goal until it is achieved.
