I’ve been taking my training more seriously for the past 5 weeks. Prior to that it wasn’t always optimal because of a lot of travelling for seminars. But I decided to really focus on my progress for some time.
Started a structured fat loss diet for the first time in something like 6 years! 5 weeks done so far (5 or 6 more to go). I’m down 15lbs but my strength is the same or even up on some movements. My energy is actually better than it has been in the last 2 years.
I will detail my training approach once I’m done with my new transformation. The diet is fairly simple. It’s basically a low carbs diet for the whole day, except peri-workout which consists of PLAZMA. I also have some pineapple post-workout. But besides that only protein and fat.
I’m also doing semi-fasted walking (I take 1 scoop of MAG-10) early in the morning (4:30 since I workout at 7:30) for 50-60 minutes and also walk 45-60 minutes with my dogs in the afternoon.
I like walking since I can relax and think about projects. And I find that it is the only form of “cardio” where there is zero chance of any muscle loss when dieting. It doesn’t burn a ton of fat, but it eventually ads up.
BTW I’m 210 at 4:30am on an empty stomach, was 224-225 when I started. My goal is around 195 which would put me pretty darn near contest condition. At 5’8" the heaviest I was in contest shape was 190, so I would be very happy with 195 considering my health issues over the past 2-3 years and my old age
