Body Beautiful

Posted: April 10, 2012 in Uncategorized

When I first came to London 3 and a half years ago, I weighed in at 17 stone (238lbs). Although I had a lot of muscle (300lb bench, for example) I was very fat. I’ve been dieting for months now and am down to 13 stone 8lbs. I’ve lost a lot of muscle, but I’m also at around 14% body fat. So I’m not a lard ass any more.

Although this is good news, it’s occurred to me that my progress is a bit on the slow side. I’m not losing fat fast enough and I’m losing too much muscle. I’ve come to the conclusion that the main reason for this is that my goal in this endeavor is too vague. It’s simply to get to single digit bf. So here’s a proper goal:

8.4% bf by the 1st of June 2012

The 8.4% makes sense because it’s already on my bf chart. Given my current weight and bf %, this means I will need to lose around 12lbs of fat in the next 50 days. Not easy considering I don’t have loads of excess fat, but still a realistic goal. Strategy to achieve this is as follows:

  1. Only one cheat meal a week for this month, no cheating at all in May
  2. No sugar except when eating fresh fruit
  3. Never miss a workout
  4. Increase number of kettlebell swings (what I do for cardio) by 50% each week
  5. Never miss a protein shake

Oh, and I number closed a stunning Finnish Blonde hair / blue eyed student (at least an HB8) in a bar on Saturday night. She answered when I called and we should be day 2ing on Wednesday. She wouldn’t let me escalate on Saturday so I’m not sure how this one will go. Will keep you posted.


Stats since 1st April:
2 number closes
1 kiss closes
0 f closes

    How many swings do you do each week?

    out of curiosity, Im a brazilian guy, Pua fan, also kettlebell fan.

      Less than 200 at the moment. Will work up to about 1000 over the next 7 weeks (with 32kg).

      It’s a good exercise for getting more stamina when fucking a girl; it works all the right muscles in the right way.

    8.4% by June 1st is pretty big goal. Can be done if your on point with things but watch out for hitting a plateau

    Are you drinking when going out as well?

  3. Jim says:

    You could bench 136kg? That is a fucking good effort in anyone’s book.

    It is possible to lose the fat and retain a decent amount of muscle natty, but it has got to be easier with some chemical assistance part of the time.

    My roommate and I used to work out together alot. We had opposite problems, I was skinny and couldn’t gain, he was more your body type. He kept track of each meal by calories, ate raw veggies, protein shakes. If you do that and go jog+lift+jog for each workout you will be able to do it, you have the willpower.

      It’s not just willpower at the moment. I think really low bf % is actually quite unnatural for most people, so I’m really having to almost fight my own body.

    Hey mate, why don’t you get some pics up (hide your face). You might not have read it but there is a body improvement contest on the LSS right now. I’m not suggesting that you enter that, but your pictures should follow the format of that contest i.e.

    – front on picture with biceps flexed.
    -picture of back with biceps flexed.
    – picture showing legs.

    I’m also going purely for weight loss (as I am too unwell to work out). I’m currently skinny-fat (I have pretty thin arms and shoulders but a fairly large beer gut). You can see my photos on the LSS.
