Not a bad day…. but I don’t think these days are going to last.

Overall, today was fine. But what isn’t fine is the rate of my fat loss. It’s just not happening. After some discussions with Nick, we’re seeing how the rest of this week goes, and if there’s not sufficient reduction then we’re going to drop the food down a little more, and I need to pick it up in the gym — 4x week.

I’m totally down with that — I have to remember that, no matter what other goals I may have, the #1 goal right now is The Defattening Project. So all work must be chosen, selected, and done to support that goal.

That said then, I’m not sure what I will do. Will I keep on a Base Building-like approach? or will I adopt a more bodybuilding-like approach? I like the heavier, more reps, approach in Base Building… but it also lacks things like going to failure and other intensity techniques that are good for building (retaining) muscle, which is rather important. Plus with the reduction in food, better is to continue to up the workload, so that even means things like reducing rest, but Base Building supports that too. Plus there’s a level of work I get out of Base Building approaches that I just don’t get from more bodybuilding-like approaches.

So… I don’t know. I’m mulling things over. The bottom line: support Defattening.
