6 foot 3 inches
Those are the basic bigs…what others are you interested in? I am pretty worried about losing some mass and strength on the diet, but if I can put my pride aside and finally reach a single digit BF%, than I hope to regain the strength with less bodyfat. As a forum wide inquiry, is a major loss of strength/LBM to be expected?[/quote]
Done correctly, there is no loss of LBM.
And while I wouldn’t recommend any fat loss diet to someone chasing PRs, many actually report strength gains while on the V-Diet… or at least they feel more “functional” in push-ups, dips, pull-ups etc. where extra body fat is impeding.
Overall, you shouldn’t be concerned with lifting numbers at all right now. This is a radical fat stripping program. How much you lift for one rep, at least for right now, isn’t the point. And even if there were some losses in strength, they’d quickly return after the diet.
Remember, chase two rabbits and both will escape. Your “rabbit” right now is fat loss. Think of car shopping - you’re a speed freak let’s say, and your goal is the fastest street legal car possible. Gas mileage isn’t the goal. You can’t have both… at least at the same time, for now.
