So I weighed in this morning at 83.8kg so a bit over what I was aiming for but happy with where im at. I want to get to around 82kg and I can up my calories and should be able to maintain 82-83kg week to week without to much effort.Last day of holidays before I’m back at work tomorrow. First day back at the gym this afternoon after 3 weeks off. Weighed in 87.6kgs this morning. Pretty much the same weight I was for most December. So I didn’t put on any weight over Christmas but was a bit heavier in December. My aim is to get down to 82.5kg by mid March in time for practice games.
How are you finding it?Age: 44
Weight: 78.8 (when I started trying to improve myself a couple of months ago.)
Body type: No idea, but I put on weight fairly easily.
Qualifications in the industry: None.
Supplements: Occasional WPI and WPC.
Diet: Breakfast is generally fairly good, with either oats with cinnamon and berries, a smoothie, or scrambled eggs (just the eggs, nothing added to them) and sourdough toast. It all goes to crap with lunch, dinner, and snacks though. I don't eat anywhere near the recommended serves of F & V.
Goals: Initially break through the 70kg barrier, and reduce body fat from about 33% into the 20s.
Achievements so far: None yet, but it's early days.
Sport played: None. At my age and fitness level, my body's telling me to call it a day.
View attachment 557491 Little
Age: 29 (30 in April)
Weight: 85 kg (have been between 82 and 88 since I was 18)
Body type: Meso.
Qualifications in the Industry: 0% but...
Former TAC Cup and VFL footballer
Trained in MMA and Boxing for 10+ years
Started semi competitive OCR last year and came 4th in the non pros at the Spartan Race World Champs in Hawaii for the 14km open age and 5th in the 7km sprint.
In short I have a lot of "experience" and know very well what works for me but I have no quals and wouldn't ever claim to be an expert in anything.
Supplements: Protein supps, BCAA and Creatine based pre workout (periodically, mostly in heavy training blocks)
Diet: Dieted in the xtreme all the years playing football so its fairly relaxed now, I generally eat healthy and know what works for me but I don't calorie count and if I want a donut I eat a donut.
Goals: Dipping a toe back into Football this year coming off a long layoff after a serious injury (broken neck 7 years ago) otherwise its just general fitness, running is meditation and weights/workouts are for fun and honestly aesthetics, we all want to look good with a shirt off.
Other: I just enjoy challenging myself and working hard, I do a little of everything and enjoy most of it, im functionally very strong and fit and reasonable out on the run/cardio stuff too.
Please... by all means be gratuitousIts absolutely gratuitous with the photo but the profile side by side is really interesting.
Ive put on 13(ish) kgs in 4 years and id say my BF% hasnt changed much if at all.
Im not training for anything in particular and not doing any supplements anymore. Most of my size has gone to shoulders, chest and legs.
