I have been a long time lurker on here but very rarely post. I have finally decided to get in borderline competition lean condition after a year of cutting. I started out this time last year at 250lbs and currently sit at 202. It has been a long but steady process and the knowledge I have gained from the experience is priceless.
My goal is to reach around 185lbs and slowly bulk from that. I am going to attain this weight while retaining as much muscle mass and strength as possible in 10 weeks or less. This would put my fat loss at 1.5lbs a week which I feel is very attainable.
As far as training goes I mainly follow a Mountain dog style approach. My diet is basically an IIFYM approach with a focus on peri workout nutrition. By following this approach I eat about 500-100 calories more a day then I did at 50lbs heavier. I also have done virtually zero cardio which is changing.
I will update tomorrow with before and current pictures as well as a diet and training log. I just wanted to post this tonight to make sure I do not back out from doing this. I train at Orlando Barbell which is owned by Brian Schwab who is an Elitefts sponsered powerlifter so I have access to all the chains and bands a man could ask for.
