5 months had passed and I am really grateful to be in the "best shape"(fitness can still be improved though) of my life since I was born. Even though I used to weigh in lighter and with less %fats in the past, but now I can see distinctly better muscles shape and definition. This should be the effect of bulking and building up muscles to weighing over 90kg and then now cutting. I am really glad to make it this far just in time for my wedding photo shoot in 5 days time.
Today I weigh in at just over 75kg, dropping about 2 more kg from 77kg last month. I can roughly begin to see my abs line forming. For the past month, I continued with running, except this time I started running shorter distances of 2.4km, hoping to build up fitness for running and also sprinting. I was told that sprinting does provide much more afterburn effect then just slow jogging. My current 2.4 timing is at about 13mins; 1 min off the target I set for myself at the beginning of the month. However I have to say that it is considered a good improvement from over 15mins to below 13 mins. I also started doing more pull ups this month after I bought myself a pull up bar. Some pictures below.
6 pacs starting to form
Comparing progress since day 1.
Can really begin to see the significant difference from day 1
Ok for the month of November, I will continue to work hard to up my fitness and get to run my 2.4 in below 12 mins. I will also aim to do 26 pull ups by the end of November. I think now I have officially end my weight loss phase and time to start on my lean muscle building phase; time to hit the gym more. On a side note, I still did not get a chance to play soccer =(
