2017-11-17 training log

Bottom line: had to make it a short one because of an early morning appointment. But I’ll be curious if doing less will equate to gaining more.

In other news, I’m thinking about doing a formal defattening again. In the past when I did it, I might do some meal prep, but I’m thinking this time about doing a formal meal prep. Like Sunday spends 2-3 hours cooking ALL my meals for the week and truly every meal I eat comes out of a plastic container. This way I can be meticulous about my macros, and if it doesn’t come out of one of those containers (or whey powder), then I don’t eat it.

My trouble is figuring out what will be the best gym approach to help support this. It will have to be a hypertrophy focus for sure, to fight to retain as much muscle mass. Part of my debate is if I want to try Renaissance Periodization again, both food templates AND maybe then lifting templates too to help support it all. Don’t know.

This is what I’ll be pondering on over the coming days, planning it out. I really would like to see if I could drop 20 pounds in 12 weeks or so.
