Got some nice muscle and strength gains in that block. Have  also implemented depth jumps and sprinting regularly now. Will try get a bit more while keeping bw constant for a bit longer before changing focus.

Kinda miss doing regular posts but i like the clarity of having one post im updating to summarise where i'm at. Anyway the last two weeks of training have been amazing. Very different from what i'm used to. Finally gave up my addiction to backsquat and im focusing more on conditioning and fitness. Squat didn't take long to give up on me too so the feelings are mutual haha. But im enjoying pushing myself hard in a different way than i used to with the barbell. Lots of intervals as well as the staple of longer steady state cardio. I use plain sprints, aerodyne machine and c2 rower for intervals. bike for longer cardio. and weighted vest walking as a daily staple.

My goal right now is to lifetime PR my leanness end of october, hoping to get a lean chest and lower back but dont think i'll be able to achieve that though im gna try my best. Sometime this year If i get lifetime fit then i will be able to play full court competitive basketball properly for hte first time in my life b/c ive never been able to achieve even average fitness for a basketball player before. But that will take long term conditioning work which ive already fully commited to.  Mainly because ive never worked at it and obsession with squats/vertical did make that worse b/c id try to optimise training for strength and didn't leave much room for other things.

First time doing a 2 day refeed and wow. Not sure i wanna do that again. Lol. Back into it now for the final 3 weeks.

yep! i expect to be 75kg this week sometime. Feeling good. Looking .. worse? It's b/c the fat ive lost makes the remaining fat stand out more. But hopefully along the way once that too is gone then i'll look lean. It appears i need at least 2 weeks of dieting but beyond that i have no plans as yet. Will prob end up sub 75kg though.

Yes this is a complete mindfuck! You lose fat and initially look worse. Same thing happens to me. You're bloody close now though.

Messed up that refeed badly. Was trying something different (refeed over several days) and it just didn't work well. Sucks cos i was mentally in control prior to that experiment. Time to start over. It turned into a 10 day binge. I'm going to start over lol.
