The Quest for 6% Body Fat by Halloween Part I

Halloween has always been my favorite holiday. This is probably due to the fact that my birthday is on Christmas Day. This year a few of my best friends are going to go to the Mardi Gras Casino Halloween Contest as “Dead” Wrestlers. Greg will be Macho Man Randy Savage, Dave will be Andre the Giant, and I will be Ultimate Warrior.

I was drawn to wrestling as a child because of the attitudes and the physiques of the wrestlers. My all-time favorite was the Ultimate Warrior. Over the summer I completed a lean bulk that has added me 10-12 pounds of muscle. My goal is the drop from my present body fat (12%) to around 6% to really pay my hero some respect.

I started the diet on August 25th. I am estimating that I will need to lose 10 pounds of fat. I’m hoping that my weight will only need to decrease by 6-8 pounds (I am hoping to add some lean muscle while losing fat). I currently am 9 weeks out. This will allow me to slowly diet down without crash dieting towards the end. It also gives me time to see what I need to do from a week to week position.

So what do you think? Do I have it in me?


I will be updating my progress every week.
