I hired Alex Viada on here to get my strength in the big 3 up over the next several months. From there, I want to lean out while maintaining that strength then transition into BB mode. I would like to hit 3/4/5 for reps before leaning out. But the biggest thing is I want to KEEP that strength, so I don't care if it takes a year to lean out as long as the strength remains. I am fucking tired of leaning out and losing all the strength I work hard for.
I figured I would log here since this is his primary site.
Just a quick background..
Got 3/4/5 pretty easily 2 years ago on the big 3, but I was a fat 245-250. I am 6'5". Leaned out to 210 that same year and it has been a struggle to get the strength back, so I hired Alex. I have been fighting lower back pain since I hit my growth spurt in middle school from 5'8" to 6'5". I took time off from lifting heavy the last 2 months and it actually made my back worse. I am convinced I will just live with it forever, so I may as well lift heavy while I still physically can.
I am currently 223-225 in the morning. A little smooth, some belly fat, but not nearly as obese as I was at 250.
