  • Trainign advice for Fat Loss

    Hello,

    I'm looking to set up a diet and training for a Fat Loss phase. 44-year-old male. 220lbs, 5'6". Lifts are Squat - 295 x3, DL 335 x5, Bench- 170 x5 , Press (seated) 112.5 x5.

    A bit of back story: at the top of 2018 I was 270lbs and had been very overweight my entire adult life. I lost approx 80lbs through a very calorie-restricted diet (approx 1500 per day) and a rower. In late 2019 I started lifting, in my first LP run I went up to about 195lbs. We got locked out of gyms in late March, and I put on my COVID-19lbs. I've restarted training and ran an LP the last 12 weeks at home. Now ready to lose some of this excess weight and get my waist back down to 34".

    I've been running an SSLP and it's been great but lately as the lifts are getting heavier I feel like I am grinding a lot of 5th reps and 3rd sets. As I've only been lifting for 3 months almost a year ago and now again the last 3 months, would you suggest I try the BBM Beginner Perscription? Or another BBM program with my Fat Loss goals? I plan to train 3 days a week with 2 GPP sessions on top.

    Thank you for your insight.

    The Beginner Template starting from phase II would be reasonable or The Bridge. Either would work.

      Thank you for your responses Jordan.

      I think I'm going to go with the Beginner RX. I think I should still be focusing on the main lifts, getting better at the overall technique and building on strength.
