I don’t normally social media on the internets but I’m going to follow this plan as prescribed so here is my forum post. I am nearing my 50th birthday next month and I have been working to get back in shape after ballooning up to 265 and 35% BF at 6’. I’ve been making slow and steady progress over the last 12 years but I want a lean, flat stomach on my 50th birthday.
My diet is as near perfect as one can expect in this society. I only eat whole, unprocessed foods, healthy fats, no sugar or alcohol and I try to get everything organic and grassfed. The food is not a concern for me but the workouts are. I’ve been doing a modified steady state workout since Jan 1 that spares my lower back and shoulders.
Anytime I go heavy I injure myself so I’m going to have to really focus on that balance between heavy and healthy. I’m not trying to get big, just lean.
I’m using this week while I wait for the Velocity box to arrive to experiement and find out what my Medium and Heavy loading weights should be for each exercise. I’m starting to transition to a mostly liquid diet now as well to take full advantage of the upcoming 30 days.
I’m supplementing with HOT-ROX, Micro-PA and Alpha Male. I’m optimistic and looking forward to the simplicity of the diet. I’ll probably be getting more calories than I’m taking in now so this should be quite doable for me and I’m willing to put slow and steady aside for now and get a little crazy in order to get those crazy results.
Here are my starting measurements.
Neck - 16”
Shoulders - 48.25”
Chest - 44.25”
Above Navel - 40.75”
Navel - 41.75”
Below Navel - 41.25”
Butt - 42.75”
Thigh - 25.75”
Calf - 15.75”
