ok cool

I'm having pizza as we speak (type??) and I will not be burning any calories today so there's that


ehh don't worry bout it, the only reason why it's cutting time is because I'm 215 and need to get to 185/190. and I want pizza or chicken wings so bad, soooooo bad.


Dropping 25 pounds for 20-something guys isn't that hard, right? I mean, you still get to eat 2000 calories a day. Do that + exercise for like 5 months and you're there.

BTW is "cutting" a bodybuilding-specific term or a more general fitness term?

I love bodybuilding.com! Glad it made its way over to TLS! :lol: JK I'm into powerlifting so this is great stuff. Good luck with all these cuts for spring. Sounds miserable.

Just took the June 2007 test for my diagnostic score and got 157

LG: -7
LR: -6, -7
RC -6

Aiming for 170+ this June and praying that I have enough time to study and get my initial scores up. What has everyone else's diagnostic score been?

Also, damn, LG are intense, I'm going to have to do a ton of drills to get used to the time constraints!

Debating whether to go out tonight or stay home and study. I kinda feel like shit though so "studying" would probably just turn into binge watching Netflix. Happy Friday the 13th y'all lol.

Cutting is a colloquialism among the bodybuilding community, pretty much there are two seasons: Bulking and cutting. I went on a heavy bulk for ~5 months and went from 185-213.6 my goal is to shred down to 195-0 in 3ish months.

Dude go out, I'm doing this next weekend there is like 5.5 months left.

Git ur powerliftin' self outta here, we don't take kindly to your kind. jk, I tried to incorporate powerlifting into my bulk but took a trip to snap city and was like, "noooo I like 4-6 reps being heavy for me."

That's the way I'm leaning. I can tell I'm going to be unproductive af if I stay home. The bars here all have shit drink deals on Friday nights tho so imma be ballin' on a budget.

Wow I dislike conditional reasoning. It's not really an issue now, but I feel like it will be once I start doing timed stuff. Guess I'll have to spend extra time on it.

Also, kudos to all of you doing the whole exercise/fitness thing. I should probably get into that. Someday.

I think I peaked too early on LG. Maybe I should try tackling them in a different way

Dude, we all have to let loose every now and again. I think doing what I did for September and locking yourself in a goddamn room for 4 months isolating everything is bad like 2 or 3 times a month of going to bars won't hurt that much imo. If it were a month from the test my philosophy may be different.

Oh I totally agree man, I would burn out really quick if I went all out so far from test day. My plans ended up falling through though so I went to the movies on campus instead. It was refreshing to get out of the house and forget about the LSAT for a little while.

Glad to see there are other people that can take UG/Work/LSATs light enough to get a good grade/score and still have a good time. My first couple years I was big into partying... then my next two years I was a complete bookworm. I took a semester off, and finally in my last semester I realize there is such a thing as "work/life balance". Hope even though I am a first time LSAT'er and recent TLS'er this helps some people, as I truly feel this is essential to sustainable success. Don't take yourself too seriously, but also get your $h!t don.

Conditional reasoning gets easier as time goes on, the older ones (PT <20) are insanely confusing to me.

Gyms are dope, it is a place where I can just zone out and do me.


I hope you're right (about the easy part, not the confusion).

157 is a good PT, think about it the average score is a 155(?) and it sounds weird but it is good that you did bad on games they are the easiest to improve on. keep at it!


That's good to hear - hopefully I can improve on the other sections too!

I think -6 and -7 are great starting point for LR. And if it makes you feel any better, June 2007 has a harsh curve AND your -6 RC is what some people spend tons of time to get to. You're not in such a bad spot! :mrgreen:

Lol im cutting from 215ish too. I had a nice cheat meal last night consisting of Chicken Wings and some Fries. God bless Leg Days and the ability to splurge a little bit

Heavy leg days have became a goddamn struggle. like tomorrow is supposed to be 5x5 with 345 but at a calorie deficit I don't know how that is going to go for me. Might just AMRAP with 225.


Do you Carb cycle when you cut? I don't necessarily carb cycle but on leg day I will eat more carbs earlier in the day to help with that.

kinda, I try to keep everything consistent and eat from 100-125 carbs a day; I know that is kind of a lot for a cut but I won't have any goddamn energy under that. I eat probably half of that before a morning lifting session (oatmeal and a low carb protein bar) so I have energy but I'm pretty drained during my nightly cardio and ab sessions.


Yeah in the past I have gone lower carbs, but right now with studying so much etc I need to eneergy so ive upped my carbs and figured it will just take slightly longer to cut.
