Well, it’s 17 weeks until my wedding and I really should be doing more about getting into shape. I’ve been a follower of the site and a lot of Waterbury programs so I thought why not give the Gain 10 Lose 10 a try. Given that I have a few extra weeks to play with (it’s a 12 week program) I’m hoping to do some extra fat cutting at the end and a 1 week lead-in to get some diet/ snacks dialed in, as well as some stretching, soreness and beginning program shit out of the way.
Basics: Male, 29, 5’7", 165lbs @ 23% BF, 35.5" waist
Goal - 160lbs - 15% BF, 31" waist
Immediately, you’ll see this is losing 15lbs and only gaining 10lbs. I’m hoping with the few extra weeks, I can cycle phase 1 again and lose another few lbs or over achieve a little bit in each weight loss phase.
I’ll be posting each workout, as well as a picture of every meal. As you can imagine, my fiancé is also wanting to get in better shape, but she’s not quite as into the same workouts I am … that being said, a decent amount of my HIIT / Cardio will be Orange Theory Fitness classes and/or some kettlebell classes at work (pretty good setup at work gym wise). I should have everything I need to do the weightlifting portion as prescribed.
Let’s get started!
Wk 1 Goal: Dial in the diet, food prep, and overall activity. Will take pics, measurements Sunday morning.
I started out Sunday with a 3 mile walk at 3.5MPH, 7 incline. Meal 1 was 10 wings, Coors Light x3 and baseball w/ friends. Meal 2 was 1 tomato, 1 small pork chop / loin / center cut aprox 3 oz, handful of mixed fruit, small salad w/ olive oil drizzle, 2 oz cheese.
Purchased the Greens+ supplement and at least a few days of groceries. I already have most of the rest of the supplements outlined (creatine, BCAA’s, Acai juice, Oil Complex, Protein).
Will post today’s meals and workouts tonight or tomorrow. Any feedback or ppl who have done this before is welcome, please chime in!
