STS first time

STS first time
I'm here to make an effort to document my progress. Being an avoider of the scale/tape measure/camera this is something I'm not going to enjoy but I know in the long run it will be necessary to be able to see my progress or lack thereof. In addition I have been motivated by other people's progress pictures so I feel it's only fair that I share mine too.


Just a few back ground basics:
Age: 30 years old
Height: 5'8"
Weight: at last weigh in I was 147lbs, but that was about 4 months ago...I'll have to get back on it at some point I know. And yes, I hate that it still scares me.


I started STS at the beginning of January 2013. Owing to the afore mentioned reasons I failed to take measurements of weigh myself prior to beginning but I do have a few pics I took in late November 2012 and I'm pretty sure there weren't any changes during the weeks between then and starting STS. Apologies for the bad light / angles too. I'll be sure to get some assistance next time!

So that was me before starting. I'm now just one workout away from completing M1 so I'll put some new pics up shortly. Rest week happens to coincide with TOM though so I'll be waiting a good few days to allow the bloat to subside wink

Whoa that's me up really close and personal! Sorry they're so huuuuge!

Wow, I can't wait to see your pics after Meso 1.

Are you eating TDEE?

RE: STS first time
I was eating TDEE through Oct/Nov/Dec. I've been on a 5-10% cut through Jan. I'm going to attempt a bulk when I start M2. thinking

So I'm starting my bulk tomorrow along with M2. I'll be averaging 3000 cals per day, although will be zigzagging a bit to balance lifting days with non-lifting days. I'll be weighing once a week to keep check on things and will drop cals a bit if/when I get to rest week.

Bring on the muscles!!

RE: STS first time
Having just done a lot of online BF% calculators, I am currently ranging between 22 and 26 depending on the calculator. I would certainly say I'm at the higher end of that range.
