You are gonna have to dig deep into the well of calorie deficit. Look up the 5/2 diet or matidor diet on this site.

I’m not sure how well these work for us older ilks but those would be a good place to start. CT says to let your body make up the caloric deficit until 10% BF but again he is not tailoring programming to 40-50 year olds.

I seem to get stuck at 15%. I’m not sure if I need to build more muscle, or cut the hell out of my diet. I’m suspecting the latter will help the former. Once we get about 15 or so bf % it’s hard for us to put on lean mass

i feel the idea quoted below need some tweaking, to distribute the stress a bit more evenly
i will also fill in with some warm up moves, and execution order

instead i will try

  1. snatch, oh squat, high pull, DL conventional LR + core, dips + fgpu

  2. Back squat HR, bench LR, Tbar row

  3. Split squats, hip thrusts + push ups, face pulls + curls + cable flyes

  4. snatch, front squat LR, DL variation HR, inclined bench db press, db pull over

  5. OH press, Back squat LR + fgpu, high pull

  6. Front squat HR + abs roll out or something in that style, db clean and press

i think i got to adjust my goal. the muscle up is beyond reach… i tried dead hang for 20 sec and a pull up this morning and my left elbow started to complain. sucks…

ok, i will try another worthy challenge that seem to be within reach in the time frame, i will try and do 40 push ups straight, no rest in between reps, with good form and full range.
