Well, I've decided to start a Keto diet and I thought I would keep a log to keep myself motivated and hopefully chronicle my success. I'm new to both weightlifting and Keto, so I need all the help I can get
Over the past 4 months I've dropped from 235lbs at 33% BF (approx) to 200lbs at 22% BF (approx) on a more conventioanl diet, but I felt I was losing too much muscle so after a lot of reading I decided to try Keto. I will get some pictures of my current self including an avatar, up in the next day or 2 (I wish I had taken some pics of me at 235).
I don't have any specific goals for the next 90 days other than to reduce my BF by as much as I can while maintaining muscle and hopefully increasing strength (if that's possible on a cut).
Well, enough rambling and on with the show. Here is my plan which is by no means set in stone, and I am open to any suggestions and advice. One of the reasons I am here is because there seem to be a lot of experienced and helpful people here. I will try and keep my ratios to 60/35/5--F/P/C with one clean refeed every 14 days. My only supp atm is an EC stack twice daily and lots of water and diet green tea.
I am new to weightlifting, so I created a 3 day/week workout based on the Rippetoe guide. My workout M/W/F will be:
Leg Press 3x5
DB Squat 3x5
Overhead Press 3x5
Pendlay Row 3x5
Ab work (hanging leg raise, weighted decline)
Tues/Thurs I may do some light 30-45 minute cardio, usually stationary bike or elliptical.
Does this workout seem okay or is it too much? (I'm not out of shape, just got soft after leaving the military). Are there any problems I should expect? Again I am open to any and all advice and I hope to have some good progress to share with you all. Wish me luck!
