Hi. I am starting this log because to track my progress as I try to get leaner.
I. My stats:
- weight: 209 lbs
- body fat %: around 20% but then again I’m only guessing so I could be way off track.
- height: 5 '10
- training age: 2 years
- previous training:
- 12 months wasted my time and money doing high rep isolation exercises
- mixed pyramid training
- heavy low rep multi-joint exercises periods followed by 8 -12 rep multi joint and isolation exercises periods (my best gains may I add - doubled my bench during 6 months)
II. Why I am doing this:
Bulking gone wild and my gut width is getting out of control (too much visceral fat).
III. What I indent to do:
In the past I tried the “all perfect” approach to fat loss. Calculating calories, training time, supplements, cardio sessions bla bla.
But all attempts failed it failed ( there were a lot may i add :P). The thing is that I was trying to hard to fast and I got burned out early.
So now I am taking a different aproach. During a span of 12 weeks I will be setting goals for each week and only pass to something more hardcore once the goal is achieved. Each week will have photos.
Also I will be adding motivational photos to the thread (an attempt to lure you in ;)).
Goals for week #1:
STOP DRINKING JUICE AND SODA AND STOP BINGE EATING LATE AT NIGHT.
Lately I have been very busy. I confounded a business and to get it up and running requires a lot of hours of desk work. I don't drink coffee so soda was a replacement to keep me awake. Also working till 2-3 in the morning lead to some late night trips to the refrigerator. Eliminating this two will cut calorie intake considerably. Also the sugar in the soda raises insulin levels and makes fat loss impossible. So cutting it out will be a critical to me being successful at getting lean.
pictures will follow shortly. A motivational pic will do for now ;).
Thanks for reading this!
