Day 103: 12th weigh-in, Improved Power Output


I did my 12th weigh-in today. I have gained back a touch more lean mass and lost a very small amount of bodyfat. The results are not as impressive as I had hoped: Possibly the Oyster Race and the two 10Ks last week were not conducive to muscle building. I am way stronger & fitter though. In addition I have gained back a little bit of fat since last week, so I'm guessing 20 blocks +1x fat is too much unless the work volume is enormous. For this last week of attempted mass gain, I'm cutting back to 19 blocks +.5x fat and measuring everything carefully. Next week will be back to the diet. I plan to lose 9 lbs of fat in six weeks, and stay strong eating 16 blocks of very clean food. That should put me close to 10% bodyfat.

Yes, I'm pretty sure, it could be a bit higher I suppose. Did you think it was higher or lower?
