Illgetthere's Training Log, Road to 6%


This will be my first time posting, I've been lurking for the past ten years. My stats are as follows 6' 1 233 lbs. I am dieting right now and I've decided to make an online log of it. Hopefully to keep me motivated and to keep me on the right track. While dieting I'm doing a full body routine 3 days a week about an hour a workout. 3 days a week of hill sprints for 30 minutes a session, and 5 days a week of walking at 30 minutes a day. calories are at 2500/ day sometimes less if it's not a lifting day. I'll go into more detail later.
