    Hey all,

    It's been a while since I've been to these boards. The last few years I've been lifting without a plan, and while I've gained considerable strength, my diet got out of control along with my bodyfat levels. I quit alcohol and fast food on 10/9/17 and along with continuing my efforts in the gym I've gone from 230 to 195.

    My short(ish) term goal is to get to low bodyfat levels and evaluate how much of this mass I'll actually keep when I get down there. The last time I went to "see all the abs" level of bodyfat I was about 150 pounds and I looked pretty skinny.

    My long term goals are:
    -Be at a comfortable body fat level and fit nicely into size L shirts. (years)
    -Join 300 bench club. also do 255 for reps... call it 255x10 (12-18 months?)

    Nice to see you back here. Are you still in a band?

    Hi Seltzer, thanks!

    No I'm not currently in a band. I had a good run with the last one, but life moves on. Now I'm excited that I can spend some time on regaining my practice discipline.

    Good workout yesterday. I could have pushed some more reps, especially on the bicep curl on the bar.

    Rest day today.

    Sunday my family wants to go to a chinese buffet. :eek:

    I was planning on having a nice fatty ribeye with some buttery potatoes on Saturday, but now that's going to be a normal non lift day calorie load.

    [​IMG]

    My last 30 looks OK. That 6/16 day is too much for a cut though. Sunday I need to keep it under 3k.

    Meals today:
    Chicken breast + Salad
    Eggs + Potatos
    Oats + Protein powder
    Jello
    ~1714 calories

    Yesterday went well enough:
    Jerk chicken & Rice
    Beef stew
    rest of the jello from Friday
    Around 1700 calories

    Today is
    Incline / Military Press / Standing Row / Lateral Raise

    Chinese food buffet today. I'm going to do 2 plates, no desert stuff. Going to log 2600 calories today.

    :eat: Good plan. You are a better man than me, I could never go to a buffet and get away with 2,600 calories.

    :confused:
    Not sure what standing row is.

    The standing was for the military press, and the row was bent over row.

    Thanks! I guessed at 1000 calories per plate. Who knows what the numbers really were, but it's not going to matter in the long run.

    Today - I did yoga / ab work this morning and no lifting planned for today.

    I just figured that standing row was a cable row where you were standing and pulling towards your chest. Guess that wasn't what you did. :o

    Ahh that makes sense, never done it though!

    Yoga&Abs in the morning ✓

    7/17/18 Nutrition:
    Calories 2053 Carb 51% Fat 20% Protein 29%
    Chicken breast / Broccoli / Cheese
    Protein / Banana / Strawberries / Blueberries / Dextrose
    Ground beef / Rice / Potatos / Broccoli / Cauliflower / Carrots

    I really pound the carbs on the lifting days huh.

    Weights: Legs :shifteyes:

    Confession: I haven't put any real weight on the bar for squats in a very long time. I don't plan to either really. My knees "hurt" every day with or without lots of weight on the bar ... and they buckle which is scary as hell with a bar on your back. I'm no athlete. There isn't a lot of reason to be pushing myself through that stuff if it has a possibility to fucking me up. I also struggle with using that as an excuse :confused: - inner voice will say "maybe you're just being a pussy" - I don't know the answer. I'm trying to find the right balance of pushing myself and not hurting myself.

    What's your opinion on pain/discomfort in joint areas? Everyone probably has bum knees, shoulder, wrist, etc.

    On a side note, I ordered a little mini stepper. Something to get the blood flowing the morning. I'm excited about that. :tu:

    To answer your question from the other day, I err on the side of caution for most things. If I feel something isn't right, I usually rest or do rehab type stuff. The only thing I push are my knees. I know I have arthritis in my knees so I keep them moving and push through initial discomfort. If they keep hurting or if it is a different from normal then I stop.

    :spaz:

    --
    Woke up this morning at 5:30 and felt wrecked. So instead of the normal morning routine, I drank coffee and got some guitar practice in and then came to work an hour early. Today and tomorrow: rest!! I feel like I need it really bad too which is weird because I just took a whole week off not too long ago.

    Steak tomorrow :spaz:

    Friday:
    Calories 1540 Carb 30% Fat 26% Protein 44%

    Saturday
    Calories 2020 Carb 36% Fat 31% Protein 33%

    I have no idea really about the calorie and macro breakdown of fatty cuts of beef. For the steak I'm logging 990 calories, 104g of fat and 75g of protein. Which seems like a ton. And I could probably eat 2 of them if I wanted to. Also with a dinner like that and a 300 calorie sweet potato, my other eating for the day is going to be minimal :angel:

    Thank you!

    I'm not sure exactly, but I think I would feel pretty good at 170 or 175. I'm not sure how lean I will be though. I'll find out in a few months I presume :)

    do you take any kind of joint supplement?

    check out some articles/videos from dr. quinn henoch. he's got loads of good stuff on working through/around pain and injuries.

    killing it on the fat loss!! good work!!
