It’s getting harder to blog, between the intense training and caloric deficit I am wiped out and not my creative self. I am also sore all of the time now. At 10% body fat, I’ve lost a lot of intramuscular fat, that’s fat that actually supports muscle, adds to your strength and gives you the leverages you need to lift heavy. In light of that, for the final 6 weeks I won’t be using a barbell except for deadlifts and squats. Upper body work will be mostly dumbbells, cables and bands.
Finally under 162 but still have no idea what my stage weight should be since this is my first prep and first contest. I had no idea that this would be possible at 59!
