I work four ten hour shifts at a machine shop, I’m a saw technician and work from Mon. - Thurs., from 4:30pm until 3am. All I do is walk, pick up heavy bar of steel/aluminum(sometimes, luckily, plastic) and cut it up, put it back and repeat over and over again all night.
Right before this year started I decided I was going to join a 24/7 gym in my town and work out when I got off work and alternate on weekends. I did, gained more mass than I’ve ever had, in order to do so I had to gain fat.
I’ve been cutting down in light of warm, shirtless season. At first I started it with one cycle of HOT-ROX and I changed my diet drastically. I pretty much consume gardens of fruits and veggies, and normally during work days I consume two cans of lean chicken. The two cans of chicken alone give me 132 grams of protein and only 12 grams of fat!
I only drink water, unsweeted green tea, 100% fruit juice; and when I wake up, and at the end of workouts have my Metabolic Drive protein shake with whole milk. Recently I’ve been enjoying this baddass organic cereal called Optimum Rebound, which has bananas, flax seed flakes, almonds, and matcha green tea(whatever that is). 10 grams of protein per each 3/4 cup.
At my heaviest I was probably 155(still small I know, but you’re talking to a guy who weighed 118 in highschool) and now I’m around 135 and looking better than I’ve ever looked in my life. I owe it all hard work and my low fat, good carb, high protein diet.
After summer is done I plan on eating and lifting megatons; My goal is to get up to a shredded 170lbs. I think that weight will fit my 5’6" pretty well.
