    Hi all, I am new

    Just picked up mark's book yesterday, but haven't read just yet. I am fairly familiar with Paleo and have been eating relatively low carb/carb free for a yr or 2. I am a month shy of 40yrs old. 5'6" currently around 220lbs. At my heaviest 2.5 yrs ago I was about 280 with a 46" waist. I am currently around 35" waist and BF scale at gym puts me around 20%. Goal is <10%. Should put me around 190lbs and 31" waist.

    former bodybuilder in my youth so have been back to gym hardcore for better part of 2yrs.

    So, no after pics just yet, but here is one from Sept of 2011 and the other from Prob around Oct/Nov. I would say I am probably 5lbs more muscle now and 5lbs leaner. NOT quite lean enough. I feel with my genetics and insulin resistance problem (big in my family but no one wants to listen to me), paleo is the way to go. I play on doing pretty much paleo with leangains IF and have started that this week.
    As you can see I carry A LOT of muscle, but leaning out has always been a problem for me. More so now that I am older.

    A lot of you have made incredible progress in short periods of time I and I am hoping to emulate you and contribute as much as I can.

    So, hello to all and please excuse my attire. 1st pic was an impromptu.

    Seriously, Mikey. You already look like a brick shit-house! In a few weeks/months, you'll truly be a tank. . . .wrapped in flesh.

    Looking forward to seeing your follow-up pictures!

    Thanks.
    I was always big, but has never been easy former to be lean.
    I will dig up a real before pic from when I was at my heaviest.

    Looking fwd to living a more Paleo lifestyle and getting that last 30lbs off.

    I have seen a lot of inspiring stuff in this thread.

    Thank you. I have Put some time into to gym. Now I want my 6 pack back

    And now here is a pic of me from Oct of 2009 just before I got back to gym and started to eat clean (far less carbs).

    I am really hoping to be 80% primal soon and thinking that should help me shed the 30 to get to under 10% bf. It better



    Still need to get rid of that distended bloated abdomen look. Still have it but not to the degree in this pic obviously when I was probably 275lbs.

I'm probably close to my genetic potential anyway , so any progress will likely be gradual. Anyway, I have lots more time for outdoor play and less boring time in the gym. ;-)

    One thing about the Big-5 and HIT in general. What you gain in time savings, you pay for in pain, if you do it correctly. The muscle burn is very intense , so this routine may not be for everyone.
    30mn in the gym 1x per week is no where near enough for a moderately trained person to gain muscle. I don't care what the book says
    Maybe good for a person with no training for about 6 months or so.
