updateIt’s been almost 4 months since my last update.  I’m not going to go into details as it was basically the same ol’ same ol’ lost of focus and determination.

The good news is, I haven’t gained anything since then, in fact I’m a couple lbs lighter.

Weigh-in: July 15, 2014

Weight: 263.8 lbs
Body Fat: 37.1%
Lean Body Mass (LBM): 165.9 lbs

I’ve been on testosterone replacement therapy for 5 weeks now, FINALLY!  I can already see the difference – I don’t feel like falling asleep in the afternoon, I’m sleeping better, etc..

Anyhow, Phase 1 started Monday July 14th and ends September 28th (11 weeks).  This is a fat loss phase with a goal of dropping 30 lbs (yes this is very aggressive) and 6% body fat.  It will be followed by 1 week at maintenance calorie levels to rebuild the metabolism.

Phase 2 – another Fat Loss phase – will begin October 6th to December 7th (9 weeks).  That phase I’m shooting for 18 lbs drop and a 4.5% drop in body fat.

Since I’m only interested in maintaining my LBM for these fat loss phases, I’m following a basic compound exercise routine known as the Wendler 5/3/1 which is focused on strength rather than bulk.

That’s all for now.
