I’ve done this twice before in it’s earlier incarnations, with some success. I injured my back and spent the last 2 years getting back up to speed. For 12 weeks prior I’ve been lifting 5 days a week to get back in shape (yes I know, round is a shape).
So my stats that I care about are:
Waist: 41 inches
% BF: 26% (by calipers)
I’m camera shy and don’t care about the other stats. My primary motivation is Ruthlessly practical. When I weigh more than 185lbs, I experience chronic low back pain!
My long term goals are to get to <185 lbs. My back injury doesn’t flair up when I keep my body weight below that.
I’d like to get to single digit %BF some day. So we’ll see how this goes and plan accordingly.
I’m following the V-Diet strictly as advertised with Biotest supplements only. (I once tried the diet with knock off stuff and got $#!++y results).
I’ll post weekly updates and let you all know how it’s going.
