    prep for 09


    I found a competition with the organization OCB next year sometime in the spring did not get a date yet. This will be my first attempt at a getting low in body fat. I will d0 the competition if i do achieve low enough body fat while not losing to much mass. If i mess up by losing to much this will just a be an experience which i will be testing out. I have been lifting for roughly 5 years.
    I am currently doing a CKD diet right now and i'm trying to fool around with the macros to not to lose to much weight to fast or gain weight. I bulked up to 235 and i recently cut down to 213. I lost roughly 10 pounds of muscle when i was in the hospital. this is my diet
    monday:
    cal:2491 Pro:193 Carb:15 Fat:178
    tuesday:
    cal:2301 Pro:183 Carb:16 Fat:161
    Wed:
    cal:1994 Pro:191 carb: 13 Fat:121
    thursday:
    Cal:2437 Pro:186 Carb:12 Fat:177
    friday:
    Cal:2214 Pro: 187 Carb: 14 Fat:150
    saturday:
    cal:1884 Pro:190 carb:12 fat:112
    Sunday:
    cal:3432 pro:187 carb:531 fat:35

    lifting is 4 days a week with 30 minutes of low intensity cardio after workout
    supplements: orange triad multi, yohimbine 10mg a day, 400mg caffiene.
    i drink around 1/2 a gallon a day mnaybe a little more.
    i will post up current stats and picture once a week sunday morning before carb up

    stats
    chest 45
    waist 37
    arms 17

    Db curls 50x8 50x5 dropped to 40x3 45x5 dropped to 40x3

    I took out deadlifts today because I started a higher dose of medicine because it make me light headed going from seated to standing up. Overall good workout I'm starving every night which sucks, but I get through it.

    Great work so far! Can see a big difference in a short time. As you lose fat you can better evaluate your weak points and focus your training on those areas. At this point I would say work on your shoulders, they are not up to par with your arms.

    Thanks for the advice and checking out my log. I will try and focus more on my shoulders since I believe you are correct that my arms over power them.

    I think your low, low carb diet is going to bite you in the azz. I don't see a need to go that low. Up your carbs and up the cardio. Or if you feel you need to have low carb days, fine, alternate days (EOD, E3D, etc), but don't limit your carbs for days on end. I think that method of dieting is for old azz people that aren't concerned w/preserving muscle mass.

    Carbs should be LOW glycemic except for PWO....throw in a mix of high and low GI carbs for that PWO meal/shake.

    Yea I have been thinking about raising it. I don''t want any rebound by just upping the carbs, so I was going to bring it to around 50grams ( double what I taking in now) for a few weeks then work it up to where I will not put on weight.

    Ok i've been busy with school and lost track of my diet, but today I went back to being compeletly clean I decided to up my carbs to 50g for a few weeks. I will then bring it up more slowly so I don't get any rebound. Theirs seems to be alot of people who don't like keto diets, which I do agree with so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. updated diet stats.Daily


    Totals Calories Protein (g) Carb (g) Fat (g)
    Monday 2598 208 45 169
    Tuesday 2398 197 46 152
    Wednesday 2179 206 44 121
    Thursday 2784 201 43 196
    Friday 2201 202 45 127
    Saturday 1991 205 43 103
    Sunday 4212 202 704 41

    I pretty much kept it ckd style but upped the carbs. If you got any suggestions please advise. I will post stats this weekend when I get a chance.
