    I think I mentioned that you would probably be pleased after the refeed

  2. Think everything is going fine. I look leaner without losing much size.
    This is last night at the end of Week 2

  3. Looks like you are starting to lean out bud. Four more weeks should show a dramatic change.

    Keep that diet tight and it will go bye bye.

  6. That is my goal. Seeing how I respond this week. Planning on reducing carbs a little this week. Trying to stay in the 50-75g window.

  8. When I started to cycle carbs I had a dramatic drop.

  9. I'm trying to find my zone. I know from previous experience that >30g is doable but only for short periods and only for periods of time where i'm training 3 days a week.

  10. should not be any need for you to ever consider going that low on carbs daily, tbh
    50-75g ehhh still on the low side
    hell if you eat a large grapefruit that's like 40g carbs right there - but, they're good carbs, bodycomp friendly (among other plusses)..you would prolly be just fine and at accelerated fat-loss level at ~100g daily, as long as they were structured appropriately
    if you are rotating carbs and going 150/100/50 then up again, that is suitable and popular as well - but again, that is considered by some to be extreme dieting as well, I just happen to look at it as a lifestyle

  11. It's really hard for me, personally, to keep carbs that low. I really feel weak and tired when venturing that low. Even at 100g I get pretty sluggish. Amazing how different metabolisms can be.

    You must stay at 50g then.... ZING!

    One more reason to hate you.

  14. Fiber excluded from daily total.

    I felt pretty good at 100 grams. I was training hard last week and I wouldn't have been able to at a lower level. So far I havn't had a hard training session since Friday. Wife kept me busy all weekend and I'm in the final stretch of Spring Football. My thought was to keep Carbs in that range unless training. If I do have a good hard session today I will up my carbs with PWO carbs. If I don't feel I pushed myself too hard I won't.

    I already know I won't be able to train tomorrow so I will keep carbs down for sure.

    I'm just keeping my option open and seeing how my body responds.

  15. Squats


    I've been exhausted all day. Long days during spring ball. But I managed to get a quick 30 minute grinder.

    Superset
    Leg extensions - 15 reps
    Squats - 10 reps, worked up to 225(135,185,225,275, 2 sets at each weight) failed at 275 on second set after 5 reps so stopped there.

    Earlier during Baseball class I worked biceps. Just did as many slow strict sets I could while kids were lifting.

  16. I was going 150 100 50 with the carbs but I include my fibrous ones. The next phase to go 75 across the board only fibrous and a grapefruit.

  17. I just realized this morning something. I was weighing myself on a spring scale at home and it was showing consistently >220. I weighed myself on a digital scale at school and I was 5-7 lbs. heavier on that scale. So I used a different digital scale and got same result. So instead of losing weight I have actually gained weight or maintained my starting weight even after operating at a significant calorie deficit and carb restriction.

    Moral of the story. The Epibolin and Epi V are keeping me strong and lean while not sacrificing LBW. I feel significantly leaner but apparently I have no lost much weight if any. I going to switch scales at home to better track this.

  18. I believe this is what is referred to as a recomp.

  19. Yeah. I was afraid I was losing to much to fast. Glad I was wrong. My weight has been steady at 222-225. BF% on Handheld roughly 17%. Most of which is still in my belly.

    I don't trust the handheld one bit. I know what you mean about most of your fat being in the belly area. Hardest area to get rid of. Just gotta stick with your dietary ritual and make adjustments if you stall. It'll go away in due time.

  21. I only use the handheld to see if BF is decreasing. Not worried about the number as long is it is going down.

    The handheld told me I was 19% when I took the pic in my avi.

  23. Ha. Yeah it has a way of kicking you in the balls.

  24. I really felt a boost today. I felt much stronger than normal today. I don't normally train with a lot of volume on main lifts but today I was able to work heavy in the 8-10 rep range until m last set.


    Chest and triceps

    Bench worked up to 275. Each set was 8-10 range with good form. 275 I did for 5 reps.

    DB Incline 4x10. Good stretch.
    Flat DB Bench 4x10

    DB Fly 2x10

    Elbows out dips 3x10
    Tucked Elbows 4x10
    Band Tricep push downs 4x10

    Close grip Bench 5x6-8

    Jump rope - a bunch
