Default Week 5

Week 5 and had a pretty good week.

Average for the week was 98.6kg. I hit a new low also at 97.6kg. Had a bit of a rebound today but its all good.

Other highlights. PB clean at crossfit just before the open comp. 120kg. Pleased with that just before doing the open workout for the day. Burpees felt pretty comfortable over the bar too.

This week would like some more wiegh ins in the 97kgs...and to compound that.

Looked good in the mirror at 97kg. Would be amazing at low 90kgs.

Week 6 Update

Definitely looking leaner in the mirror. The "V" taper is visble first thing in the mornring and the top 2 sometimes 4 abs are starting to come through.

Been consistently training but also allowing a bit of freedom to enjoy myself at the weekend and not get too caught up in the "diet".

Weight didnt budge to much on this week. Average is 98.5g. so only 100g difference.

Highlights. first ring muscle up at crossfit which was pleasing.

low lights maybe one too many nights out.

Good luck again Neil (We started a diet at a similar time last year I think),

I'm dieting again too so all the best and hope we both sort it out. I went bulk gone bad when trying to push for some new PB powerlifting numbers, now trying to fix the damage lol.

Default Week 7 Update

Been a good week this week. Lost some weight with a fair amount of socliasing too. Golf day on Thursday, birdie and eagle on the scorecard. Also the 8km walk pulling a golf bag in 30 degree heat helped.

Training has been on point - got a bit love for it back.

Highs.

Low weight this morning 96.7kg
Average now in 97.7kg from 98.5 kg the previous week.
Moving into my own apartment
Been pretty flexible on the diet.

Lows
Need a chest shave to see the change in abs a bit better!
Achilles is still a little dicey so carefully having to manage that.

Hovering around the low 97kgs and stable at that weight. will be doing another push shortly to 94kg over 4-6 weeks. Changes are a lot slower and harder now.... need to dial it in.

Good work!

Especially for incorporating diet and social life... After all those diets I believe this to be the hardest part. Suffering and hunger are ok, but staying home when others enjoy their lives to get shredded... seems just wrong. Balancing both aspects is so tricky, so congrats!

Agree - great job dude!

And well said, Schlansky. I feel like Neil has some wisdom to teach here, like hang out with friends who surf and golf instead of sitting in pubs. If only I didn't live in the land of ice and snow lol

Got in a new relationship but managed to maintain weight at 97.5kg. Time for another push. One / two days drinks allowed. 5 days dry during the week!

Crossfit and surfing will be go toos but will also do the odd run.

Default Change in strategy - RFL

I've decided that the flexible approach doesn't really work for me. I seem to get carried away with good meals out and socializing and a kind of "f@ck it" attitude, Ill try and catch up next week. This has led to no really consistency and no progress just a lot of frustrating fluctuation.

With 8 weeks to holiday, it is becoming borderline in looking to more drastic measures. the rigidity of RFL and UD2.0 appeal to my mind and also just seem to work.

I plan to run RFL for 4-5 weeks and dependent on results will then take a diet break for a week or two before running a 2 week stint of whatever appropriate programme to the holiday whether it be RFL category 2 or cat 1. I will use the forum as guidance to where I am at.

I have recently come back from a 5 day holiday freely eating and drinking so it is a good time to start as my hormone levels should be ok.

I estimate my LBM at somewhere between 175lbs and 182lbs 17% to 20% BF at 220lbs. So that is around 220g of protein a day for weight training option.

Diet - Chicken and will rely on soups they are more satisfying.

Is 20lbs lost too much to ask? I don't know. It should be possible in the 8 weeks.

I have attached a starting photo and will do weekly photo updates.

I am going to try and adhere to the training strictly 3 x weight training with 20mins LISS post plus an additional 2 cardio sessions.

Wish me luck.

Default Week 1 down

Day 0: 100.00kg / 220.5lbs
Day 7: 97.6kg / 215.1lbs

Lost 2.4kg / 5.4lbs

Highlight:

I dont find this too hard to stick too.
Free meal was a Thai Meal with 3 beers and block of chocolate.

Low lights

A few too many this week.
- had a virus lingering and has meant that have almost done almost no training.
- was also travelling and didnt have access to a barbell, 20kg weights were the max.
- No cardio has been incorporated into this week.
- A couple of travelling meals were low carb but not necessarily low fat.

Things to look forward too.
- Back to training 3 x weights sessions a week, plus 2 additional cardio sessions
- Carb up today - target mid range 350g of carbs
- Friday free meal is at an italian with some friends.
- Saturday - walk off the free meal with the GF.

Target for next week is 96.6kg.
