Hope this is the right place, I figure if I can log my diet somewhere it will help me to stay on track.
Bodyfat percentage: Circa 17%
Waist size: 91cm (35 inches)
Goal: 28 days on the v-diet, I aim to lose 12 pounds over the course of these days. A larger weight loss would be amazing, however as I have been training super hard (12 mile hike 4 days a week and 3 1 hour gym sessions a week) my body is primed, so this will either benefit me or hinder me.
So, I've been going to the gym for around 3 years now, I've got a fair amount of muscle mass, not an amazing amount but you could consider me a broad, big guy.
I want to lose the fat on my buttocks as I have a bubble butt and it always bugs me when either buying jeans, or wearing shorts. I also want to lose the slight beer belly I have and the subcutaneous fat covering my abs.
For anyone not familiar with the velocity diet, it involves 7 protein shakes a day instead of regular meals, I will supplement each protein shake of 200 calories with a fish oil capsule of 10 calories and my pre-bed shake will come with a serving of peanut butter, 15 grams of 100 calories.
On lifting days I will have a post workout shake with 50 grams of carbs and there will be one day a week (sunday) when I am allowed a solid healthy meal with 500 calories or less.
So far completed day one, workout was as follows;
Circuit 1 repeated 5 times:
Bench press: 60kg * 15 reps
EZ bar curl: 25kg * 15 reps
Tricep extensions: 15kg per tricep * 15
Circuit 2 repeated 5 times:
Arm Dumbbell Rows: 22kg * 15
bicep curls: 12kg * 15
shoulder shrugs - dumbell, 45kg each side * 12
Leg press machine for 4 times:
200KG * 25 reps
95KG * 15
And for cardio, one lap around a track.
How I felt:
After workout I felt a little irritable due to lack of calories. Protein shakes were hard to supplement for food during the day, but I seem to be adjusting and they now make me satiated.
Was a little hard to fall asleep, but dropped off in the end and had a good nights rest.
Today: Woke up at 11am, had a protein shake at 12am. I know it's a little long to leave it, but I had things to do that took priority. Today will involve walking round town a little, but no strenuous activity like the gym.
Will keep progress updated.
