Backloading with JM Type Training Log

A little bit of background
age 20 years old
height 5’11"
weight 250lbs
training experience 5 years total, powerlifting the last 3

I am trying to diet down to 210 by november

I will be using carb backloading to accomplish this goal. One week ago I was 264lbs. This morning I weighed in at 250.8 this morning I will weigh in every morning. As soon as I find my tape measure I will be measuring once a week. My workouts will be around 4 everyday. I will have a protein shake with gatorade powder afterward.

For training I will be following the priniciples layed out in John Meadow’s articles. I hurt my back doing high rep deadlifts after squats and will lay off the legs and back for at least a week or two till it feels good.
