I have a nice foundation about me, but my main goal is to be cut, so my jackedness (yes, I made that word up) becomes very noticeable. Plus as far as wrestling goes, I'd rather be leaner and athletic then bulky and more prone to injury. Below is my new diet and workout routine that I am starting today...

I am doing fairly low reps because I want to include alot of sets and I am training heavy. Right now I am 5'10, 200 pounds of bulky muscle, but in 10 weeks (June 8) I want to be alot leaner. I don't mind if I lose any weight, I just don't want to drop below 185. My main goal though is to keep the size, but cut up.
Not a bad diet. I'd say you need a little more calories as your carbs are going to be depleted by the looks of the diet. You'll be dragging like a mofo if you dont get some more energy in there.
