Weeks Data – 22.nd May to June

Week 12&13 of Contest Prep

Week 1 Summary/Averages:

Getting back into the groove with a drop in kcals and reduction in cardio. Hunger levels have alleviated and I’m feeling much better. However, I feel that my performance in the gym is going down the drain, which isn’t a good sign, especially not at already at this level of leanness. It was my deload week and I really took it light this time to make sure that fatigue levels are coming down. The “diet break” really didn’t feel like a break at all tbh…

  • Weight: 175.4 lbs (up 1.4lbs last week)
  • Sleep: 7 hours

Week 2 Summary/Averages:

We did it! The Mike Israetel seminar in London is behind us and the awesome weekend caught up with me afterwards. Most awful week of the contest prep so far. I guess, the stress of the weekend, coupled with being in a deficit for a long time has given me the rest. Strength levels in the gym were hilariously low and I was extremely fatigue throughout the whole week. Constant brain fog and couldn’t really concentrate. Still, I saw the lowest weigh ins so far.

  • Macros: 211p | 328c | 52f – 2622kcal

Latest Physique Update

Too much has happened in the past 2 weeks but I was feeling so much leaner. When I was over in London, veins started to pop up all over my abs.

Taken first thing on Saturday morning (pump, no food)

  • Light source side on to camera, to give as realistic updates as possible (no half natty lighting)
