Default Getting There - Bombflower\'s Diet & Training Journal

Welcome to my *new* diet and training journal. I want to get back into the habit of posting in one again. This will be my third journal attempt (mods., feel free to delete my old one[s]).

I now have a training partner, my boyfriend Mike. So, not only do I get someone to help push me more in the gym, but I get to test out my lifting & nutrition knowledge on him [img]/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img].

I've already created a base diet for him. Something for him to start off with and am also having him starting to use the same program I am, which is the 24 WOMB. I just love those workouts! They allow me to push myself harder with each workout. I never get bored with using the stuff here at ABC.

Starting Monday, I will have a new goal of losing 2% body fat in four weeks. My boyfriend wants to lose body fat as well, so I told him we should set that goal for 2% in 4 weeks and we can help each other stick to our diets and workouts.

I'm not concerned with losing muscle right not, just body fat and upping my strength as much as possible while trying to lose body fat.

I just found out that I have been measuring my body fat wrong for a year now, so I'm a little nervous to find out what it really is...

I'll post the results when my boyfriend and I measure our body fat (the right way!).

Anybody, feel free to comment and critique my diet and workouts. I love getting advice, tips, and criticism.

What mistake(s) were you making while measuring BF? I should be getting calipers soon, and I prefer to learn from other people's mistakes rather than my own. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] Enjoy your cut.

Pressing too hard. You're not supposed to pinch until it hurts, but until it clicks.

So the calipers will give you a "click" sound when you're pressing hard enough, and that tells you when to take the measurement? This is new to me. Remember, I've existed on a mainly pizza diet up until a few months ago. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] I am assuming you have to have a partner to take the back measurements for you, too.

Yeah. I heard you should use one for the bicep and tricep measurements as well. I've always done them by myself though.

<font color="blue">When taking the measurments for the arms using the calipers you need to have somebody else take them for you. This is the only way to get an accurate reading. Always remember, make sure the variables of each fat test are the same. Have the same measuring partner assist you with each test to make sure that they are taking them in the same fashion. I really don't see how you took them yourself. That is almost impossible. I know I cannot even come close. So, if you can get somebody to measure your arms and back for the nine point test. The rest you can get on your own. </font>
