Basically, I’ve got a job for the summer delivering leaflets for 4 hours a day, Mon-Thu. It pays better than any other part-time job I found, and I get to work on my tan.
Not to mention that it’s a much-needed chance to burn some calories - eating as per s2b, lifting heavy and studiously avoiding anything that even faintly resembled cardio for the last 2 years has made me an awful lot bigger, much, much stronger, and more than a little fat.
In the region of 14% bf last time I checked, and for a former ‘skinny guy with great abs’ (walking around at 4%) that’s scary stuff.
I’m planning to eat at slightly-under maintenance (maintenance on workout days) grouping my calories around my walks and my workouts, my other meals consisting mainly of lean meat, veggies and olive/flax oil. I’ll be training 3 times a week, probably upper/total/lower mon/thu/sat.
I’m given to understand that brisk walking has none of the catabolic effects of more intense exercise, so I hope that this will allow me shed some fat while keeping my hard-won muscle.
I’ll keep you posted (presuming any of you are actually interested!)
If I can get my digital camera to work I’ll post some before and after pictures.
