So it's been a month or so since I've been on LeanGains. I started at around 221 lbs. This morning I weighed in at about 204 lbs.
My energy has been good. People keep commenting on how good I look. So no complaints there.
Problem has been my strength has been going down. This morning I was supposed to squat 360 x 3 or more reps... barely got 1 rep and had to rack it. Waited a few minutes to try again. Same result.
Shouldn't be having any problems with 360 lbs! Should have at least gotten this for 5-6 reps.
Last week my bench sucked too. Was going for 280 x 5. Got 3. My spotter sucked (public gym), and claims I got 5 on my own, but there was no way.
2 weeks ago could barely even deadlift 405 for a rep.
Anyways, you get the point. Numbers are going down, and I'm not happy about it and looking for some advice. I like the way I'm looking though so don't want to stop with the IF.
Few details on my eating and training:
-Eating from 2pm - 10pm
-Training fasted at around 12pm - 1:30pm. Just have some BCAA's before. Sometimes after as well depending on the length of my workout.
-Training days my calories are at 3390. Rest days 2160. I also do fasted cardio on rest days for 45-60 mins.
-Training days my protein is at around 250 - 300 g. Carbs are at around 250 - 300 g. Fat is at around 100 - 120 g. Rest days the same except for carbs that are kept at basically whatever I happen to get in from my main foods, so usually ends up at around 50 -70 grams.
-Training program is 5/3/1. Strength train 4 days a week, so main 5/3/1 lift plus about 4 other assistance exercises. Assistance exercises usually 3-4 sets at 8-10 reps.
Other than that, don't know what other info to give.
I keep hearing about people on LeanGains losing tons of BF, but keeping and even increasing their strength. I want in on that too!
