Weight : 15.2% ~ 9.39/52.41 = 61.8 kg
Training : rest
Month #1 target : 31 Jan : 14.9% ~ 9.10/52.0 = 61.1 kg
Due to the creatine [I think] I have gained scale weight again but my BF% has dropped half a percent. I have now decided [after spending the last 2 hours doing endless maths] that I am going to concentrate on FAT loss rather than a scale number to determine success.
My goal is to be carrying only 5.5kg of fat while maintaining 50kg of LBM one week out from the competition [around 10% BF] . Last year I came in one week out at 11.4% BF which is 6.3kg of fat and 48.9kg of LBM. So I am aiming for approximately 1 kilo less fat and 1 kilo more of everything else. There is no point relying on show day stats because depletion and loading screws with my water balance which is how my scales read BF%.
I know it is all rather complex and the BF% numbers from my scales are comparative and not absolute but I can tell that I am getting leaner every day and relying on just scale weight which is all over the place is doing my head in. I also realise that it is not an exact science and I will lose LBM [not necessarily muscle] along the way but my primary focus is on the fat component.
Bottom line is I am well on track to hit my revised January target which is now expressed in FAT loss rather than WEIGHT loss.
