I've pretty much lurked here for a long time and absolutely love the site. Just wanted to start a log to keep myself accountable while I try to lose weight.
I was 260 when I started losing weight. Here are my stats now:
39 inch waist
Body Fat%: Whale
I want to get down to 205 and be able to cut to 198 weight class for power lifting whenever needed.
I had injured my left shoulder, right glute and right hamstring from ME dead attempt. Let's just say I hadn't had enough rest before attempting the lift. I'm just coming off of rehab but I'm pretty dang weak. I figure it's a great time to get "shredded", or at least try to see my "abz". It's been awhile anyway.
I'll be following Berardi rules at first (fruits, veggies, protein, healthy fats at every meal) for diet. I've dropped 30 lbs from the Berardi rules. I will eventually switch to low carb.
I'll be doing one lift a day for now: Monday/Deads, Tuesday/Chinups, Wednesday/Dips, Thursday/Front Squats, Friday/Barbell Rows, Saturday/Bench Press.
Cardio will be performed first thing in the morning (4am) on airdyne bike starting at 20 minutes.
