Cheers Bill,
Would be good to get down to 95kg and take a view from there. Certainly feel a lot fitter, and the swim speed and fitness is coming back😎
Luckily I kept some clothes from before I moved up in weight so it's saving me from needing to buy new stuff😊 I want to drop the reps again though when I hit my goal weight.


Seems like a sound plan Mike. The strength will soon come back once you are no longer in calorie deficit.

That's the hardest part......always training in a calorie deficit and low carbs 😞

Do you use one of those tracking websites like MyFitnessPal to track calories?

No way Bill I don't bother with all that malarkey....despite my sports science background I keep it really simple...if I'm feeling hungry every day then I'm going to lose fat, and if I'm training hard on the weights I should retain most of my muscle mass.

I just focus on fruits, veggies and protein and some nuts for minerals. I do eat anything I want on a Sunday, so if we go out for lunch then it's the full monty with all the trimmings and pudding and a few beers Happy then back on the diet on Monday....keeps me (relatively) sane.

Still alive Happy

Weight down to 101 kg now from 117kg back in November.

Weights x 3 times per week, still training all beltless, deads up to 160kg for reps, squats 140kg for reps and bench 90kg for reps but the main focus has been fat loss and bodybuilding training, ie higher reps, supersets, really strict reps with pauses, loads of upper back work, leg press, weighted step ups, dumbell presses, cable work etc etc.

Also swimming 3 x per week with 2 x interval sessions ie. 500 metre warm up then 5 x 200m in 3 mins with 20 seconds rest, or 10 x 100m in 1min 25 secs with 10 seconds rest, then 500m swim down / drills etc.

Fitness is much better than 6 months ago, also much leaner. I have also brought my squat stance in to slightly narrower than shoulder width, and low bar which feels more natural to me, less stress on my groin and adductors, and I can sit ass to grass easily without struggling to get depth. It's also easier to keep the weight moving in a straight line in my center of gravity.

On Monday I'm starting 10 weeks of the Cube method which will have more volume of deads, squat and bench than I've been doing but also a lot of BB style assistance. May run another 10 weeks of this afterwards. I intend to stabilise bodyweight at around 100kg however focus more on strength for these ten weeks, then I want to drop another 7 - 10kg bodyweight by the end of the year. Would like to compete as a 93 lifter next year as I don't think I've lost too much strength when I get my top end back.

Work crazy busy and busy with the family inbetween so may not have time to log sessions yet as I haven't even been keeping a paper training log over the last few months.

Good to see you back and looking forward to your logging weights again. See you in the 93s
