Notes:

First 4 weeks done after restarting 5/3/1.
Diet is usually a mix of LeanGains/Carb Back-Loading.
Fasting overnight and trying to keep carb intake either at night or post-training.

I honestly thought my progress would be a bit worst due to some fast food intake after work late at night.
To my surprise I actually have good progress this last few weeks.
One of the things I didn’t normally do which, I started doing this restart, is having a 20g BCAA drink I sip for a couple of hours post-training at work.

Looks like I gained some slight muscle mass while burning off some body fat!
So far goal is achieved for the most part.

Weights on my lifts are decently easy so far and as expected.
Focusing back on form to prevent injuries.
Also attempting to make my sessions shorter with as short a rest time as possible.

Otherwise a good 4 week progress so far and happy with it!
