I feel as if I've read before doing rotator cuff exercises BEFORE you bench is a bad idea. Because you don't want to weaken/tire these smaller muscles prior to doing a major movement like bench. ...

The OP said to raise your cardio ability. I'm not sure walking really fits the bill here, unless you're terribly out of shape and walking appreciably raises your heart rate.

Walking is definitely a...

When my knee was bugging me and I needed to run less, I used the Elliptical. RPE always seems less at a similar heart rate when running, so you might have a better shot at getting more bang for your...

Not really a "bit longer", but double the time. Four months vs. eight months to reach your goal is a huge difference.

Which is obviously the main drawback of alternating dieting and maintenance...

I bet the intermittment group had better success keeping the weight off long term too.

Spending 32 weeks alternating might teach them better habits and how to actually eat at maintenance, and they...

Thanks for the clarification.

Have you lost any weight in the last 7 - 8 months? Do you take any caliper readings and/or waist measurements? Are you down a pants size or two? Have you maintained...

Wait a sec, you lost ~60 lbs. between pictures and people are saying it doesn't look like there's that much of a change? (I haven't seen your other pictures)

If that's true, something's wrong.

Yup, booze is the base on which you build your "diet". This will ensure any and all fat goes right to your gut.

I'd drink beers every night, craft beers due to higher calories/carbs, the sweeter...

Ohh.

When I was about your stats I think I was doing maybe 20K/day.

Off the top of my head, I'd say 2500-2700 should be a decent ball park figure.

15K steps PER WEEK?

So you only get ~2K per day? I might peg your maintenance even lower, maybe 2200?

Just a guess though, I've been roughly your stats before, but I was quite active.

One caveat. Yesterday's test was the first one done fasted. I have read non fasted tests can give lower testosterone results. But I can't imagine it would cause a 200 point swing.

Yup, pretty much all this.

Take it from someone who got fairly lean drinking about ~15ish drinks per week (craft beer, so heavy on carbs), with one day being in the 8 - 10 beer range.

Then when...

Come on guys, let's let him decide.

My serious answer is 12 - 15%, hard to tell with a smaller amount of muscle mass.
