    that is pretty good, i know love handles are a real bitch to control as i get older. i am starting to see the same thing with the 7-ke-it didn't happen overnight and it's not extreme but any help is very welcome.
    GOD, FAMILY, COUNTRY!!!

    face pulls 160x10x10x9
    hammer machine preacher curls 80x12x10x10
    cable reverse curls 40x15 50x15 60x14

    I kind of wanted to go heavier on deadlifts, but don't really want to strain or injure myself on a friday
    I think we all have that mental spot where you feel fat or too small. If I go sub 180 no matter that it's fat dropping I feel tiny. If get up around 195 I feel fat even if I'm not. Mind games!

    Love handles are my biggest problem right now. I'll take any help I can get in that area.

    If you're lean everywhere else, it's time to start nitpicking your nutrition, especially if your training is as good as it can be. Adjustments every week based on progress - with either nutrition and/or training, until you get to where you want.

  5. Oh yeah, I had meant to add that over the weekend (as a part of entering primordial performance's contest) I calipered myself a few times a few different ways, and everything came up between 11- 11.5 which I find hard to believe as I was thinking more like 13-14 from the mirror

    Interesting. Maybe you have more muscle mass and less fat than you think, Eric. How many skinfolds did you do?

    I did 3 sets of 3 sites and they all came out the same, then separately did just the suprailliac which also came out the same as far as percentage. A piece of it may be that the calipers are marked at 2mm increments so rounding errors could be there, but by chance they all came up right about on the markers. The 3 sites I used were the chest, abdominals + thigh, with the chest + abs being my most visible fat areas.

    Considering that three skinfold sites is not really enough (6-8 skinfolds preferable) IMO to get close to a good guesstimate of what body composition one is, not to mention doing the measurements yourself, so these are both highly likely where your estimate of error is. That's not to say that it might not be close, though, and if this is the way you have been doing it until now, then it's still useful as a good indicator of your progress, Eric.

  9. Yeah, its hard self-calipering more sites than that, which is why I just use the 3. I could try getting my wife to help since my gym just uses the goofy impedence ones. But i'd be just as concerned with accuracy then too

  10. Looks good in here man

    I know what you mean, and I'd take most trainers at the gym who did one or anyone who uses BIA re body composition with even less salt than you doing it yourself, honestly. As long as you do it the same every time, it will indicate progress or not.

    That's the key to me right there. Accuracy isn't the biggest problem. Consistency is. If you're measuring with the same thing and in the same fashion you should be able to track progress and that's all that's really important.

  13. Yeah, particularly as i'm entering the primordial "who can lose the most % of fat in 4 weeks" i'm hoping my measuring remains consistently wrong on the low side

    LOL. Make me a good deal on those calipers? I could use a little mental pick me up this week!

  15. Ok, heres an end of log picture



    this is at 198-200. I can see that i've dropped a bit of chest fat, and gained a bit more vascularity. I may try and take another picture tomorrow, or use the flash as the lighting seems different enough to skew looking at the 2 pics.

  16. Today as per standard operating procedure I blew off doing legs. My inner side of my right hip joint was achy and I didn't want to push it. definitely last day of 7ke today. So here is my final review.

    7ke is one of the better values I've seen as a fat deterrent/fat loss product. I basically started and ended the log at approximately the same weight, but have a good bit of visible difference in definition + vascularity. Calf veins in particular (which is a body part I've worked once in the last month) have become far more prominent. That is with having at one point (the week around easter) having gained 4-5lbs through eating like a total slob all week and too much beer to go with it, and then having lost that since then. The product lasted over a month even with high dosing, and at its price its hard to beat.

    I see the most difference in your hip area re fat loss, Eric. Although lighting definitely makes a difference in how one looks, this to me is very noticeable.

    7-KE is definitely a great product and one that should be in any fat loss stack; even as a staple (regardless of body goal/s) for some of us
