  1. 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


  2. 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.

    One more reason to hate you.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

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

  10. 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.

  12. 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.

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

  15. 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

  16. Sounds like everything is starting to get going. Time to see the Freak come out at night!

  19. Deadlifting in the morning.


    Woke up to a beautiful Texas summer day. Opened up my garage and lifted some **** off the ground.

    I have started warming up with a snatch grip on DL. It provides a deficit and really makes my lats work. Did 2 sets at 135,185,225 with snatch grip.

    Conventional DL 275x5, 315x5, 365x3, 365x1

    Back down 275x10x2

    RDL 3x10,135,185,185
    Leg curl 3x10

    Now I'm back porching it. Did some yard work. Got the smoker smoking and the pit lit. Today is a good day.

    Hope everyone else is having a great day. We all deserve It.

  20. It is officially summer in Texas. It feels like Hell. I tried to workout around 10:00 this morning only managed 10 sets of 8-10 pull-ups with different grips. The heat beat me down and took the heart out of me.

    Planning on pushing the prowler and pulling the sled before dinner. Gotta fight through it.

  21. I can swing a handheld by 5-10% in one day by increasing sodium and water intake. It measure the impedance (speed the electricity travels through your body) Increasing your state of hydration and electrolytes will totally fool the that hand held by increasing the speed the electricty travels through your body. The faster it travels the lower it thinks your bodyfat is since muscle is 80% water it assumes your LBM is much higher. If you are lean and dehydrated it will read a much higher bodyfat level due to slower electric conduction, and on the flip side if you are a little soft but well hydrated it can read much lower than you are. It is probably as useless of a device as the old school BMI charts since it relies on such an easily modified method of measurement.

    You would probably be better off just taking progress pics, and or getting some calipers just to make sure the pinch measurements are moving down. The actual formula is not needed so long as you see the pinch measurement getting lower your bodyfat is too.

    You look like you are kicking some ass and should be happy with your progress.

  22. Yeah. I got a bunch of handhelds this year for class. So I just use it for convenience. Have some calipers as well. Need to take ten home though.

  23. Prowler

    40 yard sprints x 9

    Quick hard and effective.

    And now I'm gonna eat some carbs.

  24. Leaning out. Look a little skinny. Still have a good deal of belly fat. But other areas are losse ing up. Before I had a hard time pulling a skin fold in my belly now I can.

  26. I think the years of bad choices are all collected there.

    Measure with calipers today. All sights were under 10 but the belly. It was over 25. Average was 13.5.

    The work has shown the most in my live handles. They are now second leanest area.

  27. 13.5 is really decent.

    Agree here. 13.5 is athlete level. Can't complain about that too much. Way better than average.

    Not looking skinny, looking more and more fit. Making good progress boss. You're on the right path.

  30. Thanks guys. Helps to get reassurance. I always fell I'm looking emaciated when I diet.

    I've been movin up on the scale and leaning out. So I'm satisfied. Ending my Epibolin run this week. So how I respond.
