Well, after much reading, research and deliberation, I’ve decided to take the plunge and tackle the v-diet. I’ve been training hard and eating well for quite some time, and I’ve gone from 14.7% bodyfat down to 12.6%.
However, progress has really slowed up, and I can’t face a lengthy wait to get some decent visible abs. At only 5’11’/82kg i’ve not got too much to lose, but this will hopefully get me to under 10% bf, and help to change my eating habits and tastes in the long term.
I’ve spent this week doing the intermediate training plan, getting used to the exercises and identifying what weights I should be starting at. I’m not used to short rests when training, and have found this to be the hardest thing.
Friday’s definetely hardest - spewed my guts this morning Got all my supplements ready (for those also in the UK, I managed to source all the products required at www.Bodyactive-Online.co.uk.
I plan to post all my mesurements and progress (hopefully) on this thread. Hopefully, this extra pressure and feeling of accountability will help me through.
I do have two questions:
- I have to cycle to and from work at the moment, which is about 25 minutes each way, not too strenuous. Is this and a half hour walk enough to cover the daily NEPA? and;
- Is it ok to change the front squats to normal squats?
Starting from Monday, hopefully I can shake off the flu before then!
