  1. 12 wk leaning out progress



    Thanks everyone!! The gym was insane today. January resolutions wooooo!

    Did legs today.
    4x80 stiff legged deadlifts
    4x 135 Romanian deads
    4x 85 front squats
    4x90 smith back squats

    I would normally do some leg pressing ,hip thrusts etc but I was feeling to lazy

    On a good note, I'm stoked that my metabolism is going strong and is healthy considering this is currently wk 15 of my shred. I've currently lost 14 lbs total in a tad over 3 months. I'm losing weight while doing 0-1 hr total cardio /wk, no supps, and my average weekly calories are almost 1700 calories.

    Hopefully I'll be happy with my state of leaness in about 5 more lbs (1-2 months). The maintenance dream!! I want to go to maintenance so badly.

  7. the thread skyrocketed my test levels
  8. 12 wk leaning out progress






    So I've been off the bandwagon. I know it's the 18th now but I'm still at the same weight bc I had too many nights out, too many pastries. I'm back on the wagon though. Those last 5 lbs are such a pain

    P.s. I've seen so many January women showing up to the gym looking like this . makes me want to put their hair up for them and throw extra plates on their machines.

    Now that I think about it, I might have misnamed this thread. This is more like a 6 month shred haha. So here's current progress vs overall progress from the beginning.



    Today was legs.

    Deadlifts 135 10 reps x4 sets
    Leg press 155 10 x4
    Hip thrusts 135 10x4
    Stiff legged deadlifts 90x4
    Hanging leg lifts 10x4

    Cardio: what cardio

    I've had a history of leaning and bindging for years. This is the longest I've been on a diet for with the most control. The difference this time around is I spent more time /money investing in foods I enjoy and indulge in my cravings more often but moderately. Cravings meaning real donuts, ice cream, stacks of cookies , cake etc vs before I was too strict with it. I'm amazed at how easy it's been and how happy I am during this process. Usually I'm about to quit any day, in a foul mood and dying to eat the world.

    Things have been annoying lately. I have been making slow and steady progress for months and now I've hit the bloody plateau. It's always disheartening to hit those plateaus. Makes me want to just binge my way through every donut shop and fk my lean diet for good .

    I've actually gained weight now despite being on the same caloric deficiit, sleeping better, same gym intensity, etc. I added creatine last week. I know that can add 1-2% body weight from water retention. I'm going to just keep my diet extra clean, push through this bleh time and re evaluate in two weeks. If things are still stagnant, it may ne a sign to carb cycle or take a week off and rest. I despise carb cycling .

    I'm pretty lean now and I know my body starts to fight to hold onto the last few % of body fat when I get lean enough. If this is the case carb cycling... maybe some cardio. Both sound hideous.

    Random 1am frustrated rants ftw.

    About 30 f/30 c/40% protein with most of my carbs post workout and early to mid day. I eat about 4-5 meals daily.


    This was this morning. I just need to lose my last 5 lbs

    Add in some fasted HIIT sessions. At you're caloric intake and weight you have a lot of variable wiggle room. You're not doing much cardio, correct? 20min fasted HIIT would be a game changer, imo. Women have a crazy tolerance for hoarding glucose so anytime yiu can innate glut-4 and EPOC, you're winning

    I was putting off cardio for as long as possible. I agree with u that it might be time . I managed to lose 15 lbs without any cardio. I was hoping /dreaming that I could hit 10-12% without any cardio or carb cycle.

    I wish moving the weights faster would count as cardio. Cardio is for hamsters.

    That has been my cardio for my entire 6 years of lifting.

    I'm praying to the anti cardio gods that I'm not really plateaued

    Thanks @SFreed ! It's been a long time and I don't want to repeat a 5-6 month shred again !!! I swear I'm going to maintain this...
