Hi all. Motivation a little down at the moment, although im seeing the weight slowly tick away on the scale Im struggling to see it in the photos/mirror. Oh well, keep persisting.
Went for a 2.5km run today and did some bench press at 210lbs in the gym. Was meant to be an off day but i was bored. Did some bench cause my chest feels fully recovered from monday and wednesday and I have legs tomorrow and just felt like pushing some weight :P. Good to see my strength isn't falling.
Going to have a refeed tomorrow, diet has been good this week probably around a 4000-5000 deficit for the week, so i should be good for a refeed about 1-2k above maintenance. Hopefully that'll give me some energy + help me drop some water weight in the days after.
Current weight sitting in the low 87's so not much change there, about 5kg down from starting weight. Next mini goal is to get down to 85kg in 4 weeks.

Barbell Squats: 220lbs x 8 x 7 x 7
Tricep pulldown: 6 plates x 19, 7 plates x 10, 6 plates x 11
Bodyweight dips (below parallel) x 15 x 13
10 minute treadmill run at 11kph
Squats felt good will be upping to 230lbs next week.

This is a good log, i'm naturally skinny fat and have been thinking about trying lean gains as well. I'm 250lbs right now and my calories are so high that I can't have a social life during my bulk :/ .... I've gained 100 lbs and i'm super afraid of switching diets and losing my gains

Leangains fits so well into my lifestyle, ive found it to be an absolute godsend in terms of being able to stick to it and enjoy my food while still hitting my calorie targets etc.
If your wanting to bulk on leangains, i think it would work well with say a 0/+20 approach, but its definately more suited to recomps and cuts by nature. If your trying to lower bf% and not lose your hardgained muscle then I'd say leangains is perfect, intermittent fasting has repeatedly been show to not only be healthy, but to preserve muslce mass and strength while cutting fat.
Give it a go man it'll free up your life again, and you'll be able to get those calories in a few giant meals which gives you less time to worry about eating and more time to have fun

Ok during the week i did a few HEAVY labouring jobs eg lifting 40lb rolls of turf probably 5-600 times over 5 or 6 hours up a muddy steep slope. Was totally exhuasted/muscles aching during the week so I stayed out of the gym as I knew it'd be messy. Feeling better so went for a 3km fast run yesterday, today was in the gym doing back/bis.
Pullups x 10 x 7 x 6
Deadlift 240lbs x 8 x 7
Cable seated rows 10blocks x 11 x 10
Bicep curls 66lbs x 12 x 10
Felt a little weak. Want to get more pullups out and increase the deadlift.
Have really hit a plateau the last two weeks. No weight drop at all. Diet has been ok but a few slip ups. Feel like i really need to get on song with the diet and up the intensity of the cardio to see if i can keep progressing before i consider cutting the calories down more.
