    Progress update
    Been eating at maintenance and trying 2/3 times a week and doing some bits of cardio and feeling bit leaner but long way to go

    What do you do for abs and upper body strength training?

    Not to change your leaning out eating but for the big reveal when you go below 15% bf.

    If your goal is to be lean, then you really should get in a deficit. You would probably benefit from losing an additional 15 lbs. Absolutely keep lifting and working hard like you are.

    That’s my aim. Start at maintenance and slowly lower calories as needed

    got to admit I wouldn't mind the bod you already have, but my plan is lower carb/higher proteins (for my diabetes), lots of walking (thanks to work and my love of photography on days off) and going into my very basic gym and throwing some dumbbells about alongside some bodyweight stuff and resistance bands

    Update. Training has been consistent but diet has been terrible and drinking too much beer lately. Diet will be cleaned up next week and hopefully see some progress

    First day back at gym today since March. Main lifts strength down so will slowly build up each week. Will be sore tomorrow!

    I'm a dad. I don't seem to have dad bod. Does that make my body a faux pa?

    Same🤣
