Hmmm no I didn't. But I gave up the weights all together a while back.

 

Now its 55min. of HIIT, followed by a one mile swim 5 days a week. I should be skinney as a rail by now but I just can't seem to shake the weekend ice cream binges haha

 

Rewarding yourself one day out of the week isn't bad. We all have our "cheat days".

 

As long as you don't turn a cheat meal/day into 3 full days of booze, cake and candy bars.

If you keep carb & fat intake separate you can get away with more.

 

Did ketosis for two months with no change at all. I had the urine strips and according to them stayed in ketosis most of the time. Besides no weight loss, The biggest issue was drumming up the energy for the hiit- It was nearly impossible.

 

Did you carb up?

Were you going on weekend binges during this too?

Your weight is no indicator of ketosis working.

It shows in body composition.

Take measurements and pictures.

We should have a discussion about that shit. Hardgainers, ectomorphs, endomorphs, etc list of bro science shit.

 

I immediately stop reading articles written by any "trainer" or "coach" if they use any of those terms in a serious manner.

I started off thinking "oh, I'm an ectomorph" and the more I read I got to the point where I was like "oh, this guy is full of shit. i just need to eat food like a motherfucker"

Yeah, that whole theory is ridiculous.

People are way too complicated and varied to lump into 3 categories and call it a day on your study.

Genetic potential is one thing, but simply telling people what they are capable of based on some old, lazy, retarded theory is ridiculous.

 

I used to like (and still take ideas from) Christian Thibaudeau's articles, but he uses those terms sometimes and it drives me insane. How could you be so educated in physiology and have a hunger for more applicable knowledge in the subject and still use outdated schools of thought like that?

Haven't had a boozy drink in over 2 weeks.

Been sleeping and eating very well.

This week, front squat & deadlifts went up quite a bit.

FUCK YEAH.

I save Saturdays for my sub-standard eating days.

I might have a few sodas or candybars or some bullshit like that throughout the day.

If you can keep it all in one day it's usually not that big of a deal.

Chicken, Steak, Rice, Veggies, Potatoes.

 

All day everyday, br0-namethhhhh. I still manage to lose weight though, 1 hour run on that elliptical whenever I go to the gym, which is like 4 days a week.. 5 if Im not too sore.

 

The problem is, I need more fucking recipies. WELP.

 

 

 

 

Edit: I feel like I hit a fucking brick wall when it comes to pre-workout supplements. NO-xplode and Jack3d dont do anything for me anymore, recommendations are appreciated.

funny thing is - i've got a few of my friends into it as well (all cyclists).

we'll link up and destroy shit.

i always get looks from the waitress like "there's no way you're eating all of that". nh

 

amazing how much food you can consume when putting in so many hours.

Facemelt, I just take straight caffeine capsules when I feel like it.

They make me work hard as fuck.

I don't use them a lot though.

Maybe 1 or 2 workouts per week.

 

As far as food consumption, I pretty much eat between 10- 16 ounces of meat per large meal every day.

That's 3 times a day.

In between is shakes mixed with some olive oil.

My appetite used to be weak as fuck, but without a lot of carbs in it I can house whole chickens in minutes.

I love being a pig.

Meat + fat - carbs = fat furnace.

 

That is so fucking hard to do! There's so much food with carbs in it..

 

fruits

veggies

bread (obviously)

juice

even milk!!

 

---------------------------------

 

The best gym advice I've ever listened to is to not listen to gym advice. The line between facts, conflicting facts, and opinions often time gets so blurred it becomes impossible to figure out.

Obviously there is some undisputed knowledge out there like proper form, compound vs. isolation exercises etc.

The one thing everyone should pay attention to in the gym is they're safety. If you put 300lbs on your back and start puttin your knees ahead of your feet, someone needs to let you know that you're about to fuck your shit up.

With that being said..

I say do your own thing, figure out what works best for you and remember the bottom line is, the more work you put in, the more you'll get in return. Wisdom.

 

------------------

 

I'm starting to workout again after a solid 3 months off. I'm not looking to bulk up or get super trim. My goal is to be healthy and in shape overall. Cardio just as much as weights kind of thing.

 

Is there any potential back problems with wearing a weighted-down backpack while going for long walks or using the stair climber? I'd run or bike more, but want to try this new approach.

 

Also, is deli meat (sandwich meat) good for you? It's all I ever eat, but it's technically under the category 'processed meat' because salt has been added to it
