This is a great forum, joined wbb last week and I love the concept of this online journal.
I'm a 31 year old male, 5'6'' 172lbs had my body fat checked a couple weeks ago at 18% ( I think thats a pretty conservative estimate, the PT who tested me did not seem too confident in the calipers or the equations)
I plan on using this journal to keep track of my diet, and to monitor weight training to make sure that I continually push the poundages up, I think alot of us continue to use the same weights year after year and wonder why we're not growing!
Here's my plan: Weight training four days a week.
Clean diet, high protein, moderate carbs, low fat.
Supplement with Omega 3's, creatine, glutamine.
30-45 min cardio, 4 days a week.
I would like to get my weight down to 155lbs, see a little bit of abs, and then start a bulking cycle at that point .
With a clean diet, hard training , a clean life style (no more drinking, smoking, etc..) tons of water and a great attitude, this should take just couple of months.
