First off a little background and stats.
15-17% bf(guestimate really don’t know for sure, but I feel like this is pretty accurate) I have pretty much slipped into the typical North American diet aside from supplemented fish oil and protein shakes. My bodyfat is distributed pretty evenly across my body, but more of it sits in my lower body, hips, and lower back. I am a FFB as Shugs calls it.
I reverted back into a fatboy a couple times when I was younger. I leaned out again as a teenager during wrestling. I want to get back into a grappling sport. I feel the extra bodyfat I’m carrying is limiting my conditioning and also my ability to compete at a lower weight class where I would be stronger at.
I want to use the V-diet to help jump start my progress on my body comp. I will use this and then possibly make the transition into the Grappler’s Guide to Sports Nutrition. I want to start the diet this coming Monday and will use the rest of this week as a deload/ preperation week in my training. I’m considering a couple different routines for my strength training. MR’s Designer athletes looks promising.
I will also throw in some energy systems work(sledgehammer, light tire flipping for time/ distance, shorter intervals if i feel up for it)I have run variations of a low carb diet before so I’m not too worried about the “bonk” and I have a fairly high work capacity. It hasn’t been uncommon for me to complete 6-9 full body workouts(where every single movement was a compound ball buster) in a week for this past year.
I am looking forward to this. I miss being on the mats bigtime…
