Hey everyone! New to forum thought i’d start with a log detailing my journey to 8%! Really hoping Brickhead and Stu get in on this thread!
Background: 6 feet on the dot, 205.5lb (Currently, 11.5-12% BF).22 years old. I Worked out from 17-20, and got to 220lb at 11% BF. Unfortunately got caught up in heroin use and ended up in jail. Got out at 180lb and 16% bf, and started working out again about 7 months ago. Just started PED use again with 250mg/ test E/ week about 5-6 weeks ago. I plan on blasting and crusing for life with low doses to start, bodybuilding is my life passion. I’m NOT looking for comments on my life decision to be ON permanently, and NOT looking for a PED discussion. I know I Am young to make these decisions, and I know what i’m getting into. I only mentioned these things so that I Am being honest and not misleading people about my progress.
GOALS: To get down to 8%BF, so I can bulk up to 10-11%, cut back to 8%, and repeat.
So far I am two weeks in. I started at 212 14.3% BF. I was previously bulking on 4500 calories, with 600 carbs, 100 fat, 300 protein. I Immediately dropped to 50g fats and 350g carbs, which brought me down from 4500 to 3050. 4 days later I dropped to 2750, 3 days later to 2400, and two days ago I dropped to about 2300. I started with 1 hiit session a week, and now I am doing a LISS session for 20min post workout 5 days a week, and an hiit session once a week. Today I am starting to add 20 min fasted pre breakfast walks. I am doing a higher carb day every fourth or fifth day. Yesterday was my higher carb day, and I consumed 2630 calories, with 290 protein, 300 carbs, and 30fat. My low days are 2255-2300 cals which works out to 325 protein, 160 carbs, 35-40g fat. I consume 7-8 meals daily and APPROX 40g protein per meal.
My protein sources are : Liquid egg whites which are my main source (3-4 of my 7 meals a day and I drink em raw), ground beef(Super lean), protein powder, and fish.
My carb sources are: Brown rice pre workout 70g carb, White bagel post workout 90g carb
My fat sources are: Trace fats in already mentioned foods, 10-20g fats from olive oil daily.
In the last two weeks I am down from 212 at 14.3% to 205.5 at about 12%. I eyeballed the 12% (14.3 was callipers), but if anything I’m a lil leaner than 12% so 11.5%-12% currently.
Would love suggestions, comments, criticisms, anything from anyone really. I’m really hoping to get Stu’s support and suggestions/critiques and hoping to get Brick in on the thread as well.
I am brand new to the forum and just wanna say thanks for having me guys, I have exhausted the knowledge of other forums and am so glad I have found my way here, this is the beginning of something beautiful!! Can’t wait to hear from everyone!!
