Back should be fully healed after surgery earlier this year. Starting to get back on a 6x/week lifting schedule and will try to drop 10 lbs of bodyfat over the next month or two. Would like to be around 205 @ 8-10% bodyfat.

Over the next two weeks I will abstain from alcohol and try to limit anything with gluten.

Lifting schedule:
Mon - Chest/Back/Abs
Tues - Arms/Calves/Abs
Weds - Legs/Shoulders
Thurs - Chest/Biceps/Calves/Abs
Fri - Back/Triceps/Abs
Sat - Legs/Shoulders

Will do at least 20 min cardio and 10 min rehab exercises 6x/week.

Diet this week will look as close to this:

Meal 1 - 2 tbsp PB, 2 scoops protein, 1 fruit
Meal 2 - 2 tbsp PB, 2 scoops protein
Meal 3 - 8 oz meat, 1 fruit
Meal 4 - 1 scoops protein, 2 fruit
Meal 5 - 8 oz meat, 2 serving vegetables, 1 serving almonds
Meal 6 - 4 egg white, 2 egg, 2 serving vegetables, 1 serving almonds
Meal 7 - 4 eggs, 1 scoop protein

+ 1 gal water, 4g fish oil

Today: 30 min bike, 20 min treadmill

JC - Had a partial discectomy Dec 21st. Think the injury stemmed from an injury in 2002 due to improper form on deadlifting, compounded with working labor jobs for 6 years...

This week:

Mon -
Chest/Back + 15 min bike + 13 min treadmill (7 min @ 3% 4.5mph)

Tues -
Arms + 30 min cardio (15 bike/15 treadmill)

Weds -
Legs/Rehab/Shoulders + 20 min cardio (15 treadmill/5 bike)

Today:
Back/Triceps + 25 min cardio (25 min bike)

Diet has been on track around 2600 calories and only carb sources from fruit, vegetables, nuts, and protein powder.

Chest/Biceps tomorrow.

Attached is my current starting point. Lost some muscle and gained some fat over the last six months. Body should respond quick.
