@TomJAlready have a log over at TNation that I won't transfer over, but I'll start a log here as well to see if it helps with adherence (a weak-point of mine).
Currently running Jordan Peters Full Body 4x per week, on week 2 - will progress into his PPL when 4 weeks is up.
On TRT at 182mg/wk Test C.
PR's (not a powerlifter):
Bench: 285x7 (I know it's shit)
Jan-Mar: cutting from ~215lb to sub-200lb (Semaglutide is en route to help)
Apr-Jun: maintenance/reverse diet
July-Sept: mild bulk OR cutting phase, depending on success of 1st cut.
Oct-Dec: cut fat gained during bulk and specializing OR maintenance and specializing
Current picture at ~215lbs, estimated 15-18%BF.
lol... I recall you're in your late twenties, why our gen says we are old. It's gonna become a meme soon.I’m an old fuck
I wonder why such low calories, you have a deadline to be in such a rush?Food
Yes and no. I want to be done with my cut before March is over, but the end goal is more important than when I get there. Aiming for 195lbs, currently ~210(ish) so 15lbs in 9ish weeks... should be doable.I wonder why such low calories, you have a deadline to be in such a rush?
Terrible lol. It's never 'good' but Semaglutide is known to reduce energy a lot, and so does a harsh deficit... fair points that going too low on calories are not helping the matter. I'm doing okay with the gym, hoping for 4x per week but usually hitting 3x (which is actually on-program); only missed one day for being too tired but I think I was a little sick that day too.How is your energy?
Quite the opposite - I'm happy to have the input. I didn't come here to have folks cheer me on, I needed a group where I wasn't among "the big guys" anymore so I could get pointers from bigger guys. I appreciate the critiques.If you don't mind me critiquing
I will fight you to the death for your delicious nuggets……. 30 pc nugget is my go to fast food road trip meal. I like the fries but I can pass on it.I managed to fit a 30pc Chic-Fil-A nugget and Large Fry into this… fight me.
I have a really expensive bed that auto adjusts temperature to improve my sleep. I got it to help me keep cool during the summer.what is measuring your recovery percentage? Or what is it based on?
Ah ok cool, I’ve seen those. I considered buying an 8 sleep bed or ooler matress, both of which do not do that. Ended up not though.I have a really expensive bed that auto adjusts temperature to improve my sleep. I got it to help me keep cool during the summer.
As a byproduct of this, it also has a lot of sensors that gauge movement, resting heart rate, breathing rate, heart rate variability, tossing/turning, sleep schedule, wake time vs time up, time to fall asleep... you get the picture. Anyways, all this creates a composite score, which I use to help catalog my Recovery vs performance. It's usually pretty accurate.
