All right! So I finished phase one of #fit4RTX 2017! I managed to go from 183 to 160 in terms of weight, but I've also got myself down to about 10% bodyfat. So I'm not at exactly where I wanted to be but I am also not quite done yet!
So here's the plan for the next four to six weeks: Get big. Only do it healthy, though. Still tracking calories, still giving myself a max cap, and still eating healthy food (clean carbs, healthy fats and lean proteins). On MyFitnessPal I've basically set it to the slowest possible size gaining option and am going to reorganize my workouts around hypertrophy. Then, in mid-May, I'm going to shred down again. Ideally, I'll have gained so little fat when doing my muscle that I'll be able to get down to my original goal of 9% bodyfat or lower.
Kinda makes me wish I had the time and ability to cosplay - I feel like I would be great as a "Savage" variant of Mogar or Broly if everything goes according to plan.
