My goal is to gain 5kg of lean muscle and to lose the fat around my mid section and back, by end December 2006!
Do you guys think this is a realistic target or am I aiming a little too high?
My son and I started working out 2 months ago. Out of those 2 months I was ill for 3 weeks where I couldn’t train at all.
I am 6′ in hight and my weight was 90kg when I started out. My goals then was to lose the access fat around my mid section and back as quickly as possibly (lol, that’s what we all want…everything must be as quickly as possibly). Today I weigh 85.5kg and my stomach has come down in size from 104.5cm to 97.5cm.
I have till now followed a low calorie diet (RMR + about 300 – 400 additional calories/day with a split of Protein @ 30%, Carbs 55 – 60%, and the balance fat – that was about 2300 calories/day). I have been working my backside off in that I have been doing cardio every morning, currently am doing interval training for 50 minutes (where I burn an average of 600 calories per session), and am on a 4 day split with my weight training (I won’t bore you with the calorie consumption per session :lol:). My training routine is the one given by Cashman over at muscletalk.co.uk at present.
But there is still too much fat….YUCK!!!
I seem now to have reached a limit in regards to my weight reduction, which I’m thinking is due to the weight training and maybe, just maybe a little bit of muscle that has been developing. My goal was to reach 84kg but this has now changed.
What was really disappointing was that I have been using Redbak WPI and then, in my effort to lose the ugly stuff around the middle, read in the forum that those who had used this in the past had gained some extra fat!
I am now trying Myopure 😆 and expect delivery tomorrow.
I should be receiving my fat measuring calipers tomorrow and will only then be able to tell you what my current body fat percentage is.
In an attempt to remove the stuborn uglies that are still around, I am upping my calories to RMR x 1.2 + 600 (for cardio) + calories burnt for each training session and going to train hard. I will continue with my 4 day split program. I will be following a carb cycling diet for the next three months and will monitor my body fat etc…fortnightly. I will try to maintain my protein levels between 30 – 35% and my fat intake up around 20% if possible. I have also decided to use createne during this period. I guess I am hoping to let the extra muscle assist in the fat attack!
I hope that I am approaching this correctly?
Anyway, apologies for the lengthy post on my goal and hope you all achieve what you have set out to do.
To be 90kg (from 78kg currently) for my birthday December 3, 2006, i know its possible with adequate nutriton , rest and weight training. I started at 66kg at 5″11 height, i gained a bit over 10 kgs in a little over a year, but my diet and sleep wasnt in order for full potential, if only i had it in good order i would have gained more.
I have to say if it wasnt for myopure i wouldnt be where i am today, you sacrifice a bit for taste and make your own mixtures, but the results speak for themselves, even a steroid using (test/deca) competitive bodybuilder friend of mine keeps commenting on my change. I like it how he balloons then shrinks depending on the cycle, and i stay the same all year round 8) .
I like that approach !
I’m hoping to continue on my return to serious training which has tended to go strongly for 6 months or so and then peter out in the past. If I can get a good 12 months of steady training this year I’ll be very happy.
I’m currently sitting on 104kgs at 181 cm with some kg’s of fat to lose….
Would be very happy to be a leaner (than now) 110kgs at the end of 2006.
I’m actually very happy with my weight, BF% etc so my main goals for this year are mainly all strength related.
I’ll be turning 35 this year so I plan on getting as strong as I can before age eventually catches up on me (which hopefully is still a few years off).
Work interfers alot with training so another goal is to train as consistant as I can.
I plan to gain 10 -15 kg by the end of the year. Tall order?? Maybe. I used to do martial arts years ago and put on ten kilos in just over a year just from general training, not at all focusing on mass and gains.
I am pretty cut as I can be (I have an accelerated metabolism), it’s just a matter of lots of eating and hard work! 😀
