Hello everyone. Figured I’d drop by and start a thread to keep myself accountable as I make my 6 week journey. I’ll be starting next week when my sups arrive (ordered them today) and I’ll take some starting measurements/photos this coming weekend.
After reading several logs, I’m wondering if this is right for me. While I know I’ll lose fat, I don’t think I have that much to lose overall. I’m just at my wits end with trying to get down to 6% or 7% BF and looking to get there once and for all. I’m currently 178 and I feel like I only have 5 or 6 pounds to go before I get to my goals. Will I lose too much on this?
Anyway, a little bit about me:
Like my tag states, I’m late to the game of fitness. Two years ago I found myself sitting @ 220 and extremely unhappy with my state of mind and overall appearance. A rupture of my Achilles prompted me to begin getting fit so I started running & lifting weights after I recovered. Here I am two years later, much healthier, much lighter, but still not where I want to be aesthetically. I hope this does the trick.
I plan to follow the nutrition to a T, but my workouts will be full body workouts with the Olympic lifts at the core of my routine which is as follows:
Squats 5 X 5
Bench Press: 3 X 6,8,10
Seated Row: 3 X 6,8,10
BB Shrug: 3 X 6,8,10
BB Curls 3 X 8
Squats: 5 X 5
Military Press: 5 X 5
Deadlift: 2 X 5
Weighted Chins: 3 X 8
Weighted Dips: 3 X 8
Squats: 1 X 5
Bench Press: 5 X 5
Seated Row: 5 X 5
BB Shrug: 5 X 5
BB Curls 3 X 8
I’m interested in your thoughts on this particular routine with the V-Diet. I’m currently following a linear progression and adding weight to each lift on a weekly basis albeit at a slow pace as I’m not looking to compete, just get fit.
For example, my BP gets 2lbs/week, squat 2.5lbs. DL 10lbs etc.
Anyway, enough for now and I’ll be checking in each day and logging progress.
Looking forward to taking the journey with all of you.
