SUMMARY

During June l trained on 28 days and completed 32 separate training sessions. This has been my most active month in recent memory.  A high frequency month for me historically has been 16-20 sessions.    Combined with April and May I’ve accumulated a lot of volume at moderate intensity.  Last week I felt sort of stale.  I will back off some of the volume and introduce more exercise variation to ensure I’m allowing recovery.

Weight: 171.8
Body Fat Percentage: 13.1%
Lean Body Weight: 149.3

Compared to:

April 23, 2019

Weight: 175
Body Fat Percentage: 15%
Lean Body Weight: 148.7
Fat Weight: 26.3

SUMMARY

Almost 4 lbs of fat loss in two months.  Lean weight is almost the same despite my effort to gain lean mass.  I have a few possible variables to consider as I continue to pursue 9-10% body fat.

  • Insufficient recovery from high frequency resistance training
  • Insufficient protein intake
  • High volume cardio work

If I continue my current program I will likely continue losing fat but at a slow rate.  Ideally I want to add lean mass and maintain a body weight of 170 lbs.  Additional muscle makes it easier to drop fat.     I can’t add to my frequency of resistance training but I  can increase protein and recovery.  I can also reduce frequency of resistance training and increase the intensity.
