I read about the T-ransformation contest and decided to go all in. In all honesty, I’m pretty intimidated but the way I see it, I have nothing to lose (except a ton of fat) and everything to gain.
My absolute singular goal is fat loss. I’m driven to see my abs for the first time in my life. I want a healthy & attractive body. This past January I was a fat 235 and was a life wasting 35% body fat. As of today I’ve lost 46lbs, weigh 189, and believe I’m between 20-25% body fat. I’ll post pics soon, but guess I have another 20lbs to drop to become noticeably lean. I’ve cleaned up my diet, have gotten stronger running StrongLifts since April, but now it’s time to pour it on and really get after it.
I want to choose a program from this site, and essentially act as a guinea pig for the community. My only stipulation is I want to workout in my garage/home. I have all the typical garage gym equipment: rack, barbells, pull up/dip, row machine etc and have no problem picking up other equipment if needed. Also, living in AZ I have unlimited ability to workout outside during the winter/spring so no issue there.
The programs that I’ve read about include: 10X3 For Fat Loss, Athlete Lean Athlete Strong, 5/3/1, etc. Beyond just these few, which program are you interested in? Which program do you want to see tested in the real world? I want this to be fun, and as a beginner I’m open to anything, I just thought this would be an exciting way to engage the community. Let me know what you think, we’ll settle on a program, then I’ll get my ass to work.
My promise to you is that no matter what program is picked I will put the work in, and give you my all. I will start a training log and give back to the community as much as possible. You’ll share in the wins, and have a front row seat to my failures. My goal, besides fat loss, is to transform my body and hopefully inspire others to consider their next steps. Let’s do this. Let’s make it fun. I’m in. Are you?
