well...it's time to do it.
I certainly won't be the biggest, but my goal is to be the leanest. I've never been below 10%bf for an extended period of time. In the past I've wasted a lot of time not tracking macros and focusing on different things that conflicted with my goals (running, oly lifting, sports, etc.). When (not if) I get to a condition that I am satisfied with, I would like to compete. Giving myself plenty of time to get in shape. I get a ton of inspiration from guys like berto, eric (quelly), paul (fltallpaul), other paul (blazed), brett (baftub) and many more who have shown what it really takes to get in nasty condition. So, without further ado..
Recently moved from upstate New York to South Florida. I'm taking grad classes at night working towards a master's in Exercise Science, and I work full-time at a spinal cord injury rehab facility. (I love my job ) Started lifting after high school (wish I started sooner!)...started off just for general fitness to combat my Crohn's Disease and stay healthy, but I was bit by the bodybuilding bug and I've had an interest in competing for quite awhile now.
-Get as lean as humanly possible
-Be a part of the shredded glutes club
-Maintain lower offseason bodyfat to make this easier next time around
-Learn a lot about myself (mentally and physically)

Might seem a little low to start but I've never really had a fast metabolism. This should get me 1-2 lbs a week after the early drops. Refeeds will be every 10 days and move to once a week when I start to lean out. Using principles from Layne's precontest write-ups. If for some reason things aren't going right with the diet, I'll get in touch with the ivory latino to see if he has time in his schedule to fix my mistakes.
Here's a starting pic to show just how far I have to go:
Morning bodyweight: 187.0
I'm here to learn so any input along the way is much appreciated!
