  • I would say that I'm pretty ripped... I'm just about 16 (I guess that has some to do with it ...). I was chubby though then I did P90X a few times which got me pretty lean. Now that I am Primal I've really build some more muscles from just doing a lot of L-Sits to Handstands and other Gymnastics moves during my summer job outside. I still do some P90X which helps. I eat pretty low carb and some higher carb days depending on how I'm feeling.

I had to eat a lot and lift a couple times a week to stay in the 170's and it just wasn't worth the effort for me to keep 10 extra pounds of vanity muscle. Climbing seems to have a way of restructuring you for better strength:weight. I haven't had an official body composition test done, but from the range my Tanita scale reports, I'd guess in the neighborhood of 5%.

      I've been restructuring my diet a bit to add in more carbs. Very lean composition + intense activities doesn't seem to give great endurance. Adding more fruits, sweet and other potatoes, beets, etc seem to be helping in that respect.

        • *bump*

          and no, i don't have that ripped, grok body. sometimes i think about striving for that, but then my breasts might shrink more than i'd like. i can certainly strive for strength, though, regardless of BF%.

          • Not far off. 12-13% BF now. Good musculature. I'd like to get to 10% and am starting a more disciplined bodywieght lifting and IF period with carb cycling to see what that gets me. Of course, being more disciplined about reducing nuts and wine consumption would help.

                • I'd say I'm getting there. Currently about 10% body fat. Started Paleo at 213 lbs on March 4th of this year (2012) and currently weigh 169. I've been 90% Paleo since the beginning and evolved an 80/10/10 approach to my weekly training time which seems to work best for me. 80% low heart rate jogging, walking or hiking (3 to 5 hours per week), 10% Sprint or Hill Repeats all out and 10% strength training. You can follow my Paleo journey from the beginning on my Facebook diary - link below. Good luck!

                    Do what you love and do it often. If you don't like something, change it. if you don't like your job, quit. If you don't have enough time, stop watching tv. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop, they will be waiting for you when you start doing the things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Some opportunities only come once, seize them.

                      Looking good. My husband has been doing it for approx 10 weeks and is looking great. His stomach has gone!!! Pretty much like yours. Annoyiny I have been doing it far longer with more compliance and no where near as good results.

                      • Thank you. I do train a fair bit as well though. That pic was taken in Chiang Mai, Thailand. I can assure you I wasn't quite so lean by the end of the 3 weeks
