Hi folks! Before I begin, I would like to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! That said, let’s get down to the nitty gritty. As I posted before, I started my Fat Fast 5 weeks ago. In that time, I managed to shed 18 pounds of fat and keep all of my lean mass - I’m down to around 9% and my goal is closer to 6%, but I wil get there. I had all the usual issues in the first week, but they subsided once my body adapted. My only change was that I subbed Xenadrine for MD6 for the last two weeks - I really didn’t notice much of a difference as they are both good products. In all, I’d recommend this program to all those who are willing and think they can stick it out!
On to my question: I doubt anybody remembers, but when I first posted and started my FF, I had a friend want to do it with me. He has very little experience in the gym and is really obese - 270 and 30% bodyfat. I convinced him that the program would just be too much for him and I told him that he should start gradually, cutting carbs and lifting 3x/week. Well, it’s five weeks later, he’s lost a little weight, and he’s asking me for more advice. What would you guys recommend? He’s a naturally big guy and putting on mass comes easy for him so I’m thinking of recommending T-Dawg for him, supplemented with some modified German Volume Training (I know he can’t handle that whole workout yet!). Any ideas?
