CoachPalfrey: Thank you for your input. I have not had my BF measured by calipers or any other reputable means. I've used the 'online' calculators where you dump your measurements & weight in, and it miraculously provides a BF #. I suspect I am less than 21% BF, but not exactly where where I am.

As per your situation, I'll revisit the PB workout recommendations. Again, my constraint is that I am unable to lift really heavy in a gym due to this disc challenge that I have.
What are your thoughts on the LeanGains programme? --- perhaps approaching PB and Leangains as a hybrid?
And lastly, is it possible to get really cut while adhering to PB exclusively?
My frustrations in not seeing results as quickly as I'd like may be to my detriment -- but that's something I need to deal with on a personal level.
