DISCLAIMER: THERE WILL BE FLEXING IN THIS THREAD
So, this is going to serve as my recomp journey. Anyone and everyone on a journey to physical self improvement is welcome, regardless of goals.
This is me getting ME back
In the 90’s, not only was I was a successful personal trainer, I was training for the 1995 Miss Fitness competition. Unfortunately, my addiction killed that dream. Maybe I’ll train for some geriatric competition now lol.
For those that don’t know what a recomp is:
Body recomposition is the process of reducing body fat while simultaneously increasing muscle mass. Consistent nutrition and workouts are essential.
I’m working out twice daily and for 60 days trying the following macro percentages:
Everyone’s body is different, so there is no exact science on what macros you should be incorporating into your diet. I started these percentages on July 15th and will continue until September 14th. At that point I will experiment with a different set of percentages. That is yet TBD.
Start Weight: 117.3 lbs
Start BFP: 16.7%
Current Weight: 115.5 lbs
Current BFP: 16.2%
Goal Weight: 130 lbs
Goal BFP: 10-12%
As you can see I’m going in the wrong direction weight wise. Yesterday, I added weight gainer to my diet.
For the first 4-6 months I will weigh daily to watch for hormonal trends etc. and record the data. After that, probably weekly. It’s very hard for me to remember to weigh myself so I had to put the scale out where I practically trip over it. Please note this is NOT an obsession thing, it’s a data thing to understand my body. It’s a common practice in training.
LET’S GET SWOLE!!!
