Feel free to comment, opine or criticize. I wont learn if Im not made to rethink some of my concept/ideas and challenged to prove that something is working.
Statistics such as they are:
Gender: Male, 35 yrs.
Weight: 191 lbs as of 2 weeks ago 20% BF (as measured through an Bioelectrical Impedance Bodyfat scale, its a start)
Goal: Drop to 13-15% BF before starting a new strength / gain cycle. Attempting to maintain strength on 4 core movements while dropping the lbs.
Program: 5/3/1 by Jim Wendler with slight modifications. (Google the name or the program name if you want to know more). Add: blackironbeast.com/5/3/1/calculator <-- great calculator for figuring out your weights for the program.
Following a modified version based on Lyles recommendations across his articles and books. The basics are:
Training Days - 2600 calories, with an upper limit of 20% carbs, 1.5 g / lb of LM of protien and the rest made up of dietary fats.
Off Days - 2200 calories, with an upper limit of 12% carbs, 1.5 g / lb of LM of protien and the rest made up of dietary fats.
Re-feed: 5 hour, 3 meal high carb / low fat once a week.
Worth noting: I started this a month ago with a 3 week long run before the first re-feed. Plan to run this into mid Sep. before evaluating next steps.
