Haven't updated in a while but I finished the Berardi program. 6 months of training and diet at I'd say about 95% compliance (more like 100% when "cutting" weight for a BJJ match, less afterwards... I went down from say 28% BFP to about 24%. Workouts were weights for three or four days a week (three or four workouts repeating for fo three days of BVJJls each month) plus two to three days of BJJ plus all of the nutrition habits (they'd add new ones all the time), BCAA's, fish oil, multi and mobility work as a warm-up. Lost about five inches from my waist. The pictures were pretty telling. Felt a lot better physically and best of all managed to balance heavy training with weights AND jits with recovery.
So what's next? Trying to decide whether it's time to try to increase strength and gain mass or still try to lose fat. Trying to decide on the next program. Thinking of going back to NROL but have a few other options.
