I’m Steve. I was a pretty lean personal trainer about 5 years ago, but since then have been working in an office, and workout habits have fluctuated season to season, as posture and joint pains have gotten worse. I was 215lbs, and 12-14% bodyfat back then. Now I’m bigger, in a not-so-good way.
2015 was a particularly good year, though. I hit several strength PRs and was looking leaner than I had in quite a while.
But the year ended with a whimper, as chronic elbow tendinitis halted most of my upper body training, and my nutritional consistency began to fall apart around November. I was hitting lower body strength workouts a couple times a week, and keeping up with some yoga and cardio, but my intensity dropped considerably.
To kick start the new year I decided to try out the Velocity Diet. I’ll do the program exactly as planned, with Hot Rox, Tribex, and ZMA added. I ordered the package a couple days ago, and am hoping everything is here in time for me to begin on Sunday 1/10/16.
Here are my starting stats for the V-Diet:
Height: 6’6" (though I don’t expect this stat to change )
Belly above navel: 36.5 inches
Belly at navel: 39
Belly below navel: 40
Arm: 13.5 (straight arm, relaxed)
