So it's 2009 and time for phase 3 in my training.
Last year I was 288lbs on January 1, I dieted until October down to 214lbs but wasn't happy with my lack of muscle and decided to gain some weight back.
I went from 214lbs up to 237lbs the Saturday after Christmas and began dieting down again the following Monday. As of right this last Saturday I was 234lbs.
Goals this time around are to get rid of my gut or diet until May, which ever comes first. I don't care about seeing abs, I do care about maintaining as much strength and muscle as I can.
The training will be a modified 5x5 and the diet will be low carb around 3000 calories a day for the time being.
