I am currently at the middle of week#2 and was wondering if the amount of muscle loss I’ve experienced should be expected. Granted, in the overall scheme of things, I think it’s an acceptable amount of muscle loss in relation to fat…I just don’t want to wither away too many of the gains I’ve made.
Starting Stats -
15.7 pct bf
Lean Body Mass - 163.96 lbs
Current Stats (as of this morning) -
11.2 pct bf
Lean Body Mass - 160.72 lbs
Total Overall Weight Lost - 13.5 lbs
Total Lean Body Mass lost - 3.24 lbs
My admitted faults on the program thus far:
Missed my Monday workout this week. Haven’t been lifting as heavy and as low a rep count as prescribed (due to recovery from shoulder injury) and haven’t made time for NEPA walks every day (but have tried to compensate by performing as much NEPA as possible - parking far away, taking stairs, etc).
I am not concerned about losing 3 or so lbs of Lean Body Mass, but don’t want to lose too much more or risk getting back to the scrawny state I was in post-SLAP repair of my right shoulder…UGLY thin arms). Thoughts?
