Hi everyone, I started yesterday (Apr 5) on the v diet and am posting for some extra accountability. Four years ago I was FAT. I woke up one day and decided it was time to change that and dropped about 80 pounds through diet advice I found here and lots of brazilian jiu jitsu training.
Fast forward to this last year: I teach during the day and am compressing two years of grad school into one and have had to give up (temporarily) the jiu jitsu training I love so much due to my obscene classload (all done by July). Figured I would do this diet to undo my laziness (up to 213 from 200) and hopefully go a little beyond where I was.
MEASUREMENTS: 5’10 1/2 213 lbs
navel 38.5 (my softest area)
hips around my butt 43
Thigh L/R 25/25.5
calf L/R 15.5/16
Ankle L/R 10/10
upper arm L/R 14.45/14.5
upper arm flexed (Id like to close this gap) l/r 15.5/16.25
Without furtho ado: Day one was fine, all the shakes left me plenty full all day. Worked out with the following results. It seems i’ll have to go a little heavier next time as I wasnt sure where to begin (I usually lift with heavy sets of three on squats, deads, shoulders and bench variations)
DB squat 110lb db, 10, 9, 9, 8, 6
DB bench 75lb dbs, 10, 8, 8, 8, 7
Bent-over DB row 40lb dbs, 9, 9, 9, 9, 7
Off to the gym for workout two. Have a good day, Josh
