5 weeks out

Things are hotting up now, feel very much pushed to the limit now, training performance is hanging on in there with everything I have, fatigue is very high with my current workload, sleep is disrupted & food focus is extremely high. All very normal "symptoms" that my bodyfat levels are getting close. A necessity without any way of totally avoiding. I'm glad I didn't grow up in the era of 0 carb diets & lots of fasted cardio, a recipe for disaster!

weighing in at 168.8lb now with evident fat loss in my hamstrings/glutes. Upper body is ready now, only a slight increase in fullness will enhance the look there. The last 4-5lb or so will be all lower body to bring the complete package.

Nothing will change in my approach, simply just keeping on with what has worked so far, with a drop in food if I feel i have stalled in condition for a week or so (hasn't happened yet)

this week of training has been very challenging, squats & deadlifts feeling pretty unstable with a smaller waist & looser weight belt, we push on regardless, being smart with loading of coarse, heavy but not dangerous.
