Kenneth Gives 'Er

#1 Postby KennethB » Sat Jul 04, 2009 7:03 pm

So here's where I'm at as of July 4th. It's been a real journey from a 6'2", 165-pound stick (in 2005, compare with a family photo from 2004, shortly after I went vegan and initially decided to eat nothing but fruit until noon - the Harvey Diamond diet, not recommended for reasons that should have been obvious at the time, but I digress) to a 245-pound gym buff with a gut to lose.

The weight-training part is getting way more effective with faster results, but the fat losing part remains a challenge. I'm not making much progress there. I already know what to do: cut out junk food and booze, but truthfully it's a battle. Any advice is very welcome.

A few stats (min 5 reps):
Arnold Press: 65 lbs (x2).
Deadlift: 4 plates.
Bench: 200+ lbs.
Calf Machine: 5+ plates.
BB Shrugs: 4 1/2 plates.

I'm working with a dip belt now for dips and almost finished with chin-up assistance. The end of the summer should see me with the dip belt for chin-ups. We'll see what happens! I'll update in a couple months.

Thanks for the advice and support. So glad to be part of the community.

Peace and Love,

Good base to start with you've got there!

We're in the same boat, it seems - within a few lbs. of each other, have put on some great size bit now trying to shave off some fat as well. I'll keep up with your progress, for sure!
