For 2 months now I've been back in the gym trying to regain strength and size. A year and two months ago I had arm surgery to repair a broken humerus and just recently I've been cleared by the doc's to lift weights again. My immediate goals are to build muscle and lose fat at the same time. I'd developed the worst case of skinny-fat you've ever seen and rather than either bulking up or cutting, I've decided to do both! Because I had lifted prior to the surgery, I haven't had too much difficulty regaining some muscle mass, and the fat has been coming off pretty consistently (according to the mirror). My lifts are still pretty damn weak though. I'm currently 6' 189 lbs at about 14%. Squat- 245X5, Dead-285X5, Bench-can't barbell bench press, shoulder is too jacked up. I can dumbbell flat bench press though, and I've been doing 80'sx8. By this time next year I hope to be 205 lbs at 10% and strong as hell. As for my diet, I am eating steak and a potato 3Xs a day and having whatever I want for my other 2 or 3 meals-Usually subway, eggs, tuna, veggies, rice, cereal...whatever. I don't count calories, and I'm not very strict on my diet- it's a vast improvement anyway. I am going to continue with this workout and diet regimen until I stop seeing progress, in which case, I'll start eating a little over maintenance and try to build muscle while maintaining body fat as best I can.
