Happens to everyone, but I had a wakeup call today. Got a DEXA scan done (pretty cool, its actually part of my major in school and was free) and I am carrying more fat and less muscle than I had thought. I weigh 217 as of today, with 50 lbs of that being fat and 166 lbs of fat free mass. It’s time for a recomp. Goals are to lose fat first and foremost, while keeping all the muscle I can.
I play Rugby at Virginia Tech, but it’s my offseason so I have practice only about 2x per week. Plan is to run 5/3/1 and add conditioning 1 or 2 days a week when I don’t have practice.
Let the Games begin.
