Well, it was fun while it lasted. 🙂

I am NOT making progress on the fat loss. It’s actually really mystifying to me because after over a year of doing this I have a pretty good handle on my body rhythms and flow of how the weight fluxes happen, and I just haven’t been seeing that same pattern. It’s quite strange and I don’t know what to make of it.

And frankly, I’m annoyed. I was aiming to be maybe 210 by now but I’m not…. 216 still…. still… still. grr….

So yes, going to drop the food intake, and up the work. I have a new plan set up that I’ll start on Monday, so today ends the 3x/week Base Building. The plan is my own, but still trying to be in the mold of Base Building. That type of work, that sort of focus, but 4x/week. Monday bench/chest, Tuesday squat/legs, Thursday deadlift/back/biceps, Friday shoulders/triceps. We will see how long I can keep it up, because with the reduction in food and increase in work (and stress), recovery needs to be on-point. So… we’ll see.

That said tho, today went well. Every deadlift rep I worked that new approach I stumbled into for my setup, to help ease the knee issues. It worked quite well, especially the warmer I got. I shall keep working on that.

And the v-bar pulldowns. Man, I like. Never really done them, and the chins just didn’t happen… but here on pulldowns? I can have less weight, fuller range of motion, and really work the back… I felt muscles working and getting worked in ways I hadn’t before. It was quite cool.

Otherwise, a good day. And while I’m annoyed at my lack of progress, I’m looking forward to where things will go.
