Maybe it's because I'm smaller and my results are smaller? Or maybe it's because my body likes to make everything difficult for me!!! It really helps when someone pushes me. I have more motivation when Troy is yelling at me to keep going!
    Well, to me it's all about the mirror... I know that unless I am motivated and work my a$$ off I will not see the results I want, and then I realize that Summer is around the corner and I will have plenty of lake / beach weekends where I wanna feel good about myself and not have to hide behind a shirt or sit back and be jealous of others.

    That gives me the extra will to go out and murder that treadmill as I think why oh why did genetics f0ck me over so hardcore.

  3. WOOOOO! Sorry been super busy this week! Spring work started up! Which means ive been doing cardio all day! hahaha

    Got in 2 lifting workouts this week and trying to get one more in tmoorrow.

  4. Sorry guys! didnt mean to be MIA! I am upset with my performance last week! Worked out 3 times but ate like ****! I am back on track now!

    I do have a question though... Ive always low carbbed it.. but im thinking about doing high cards on lifting days and low to mid on cardio/regular days.... maybe aiming for more a recomp

    I lifted today and Im probably at about 2500 cals already with a pre bed meal to go yet and usually i dont break over 2000-2400 cals due to my maintenance being 2800 so im thinking maybe higher carbs with complex carbs would benefit me on lifting days

  5. contrary to popular belief, unless you are talking about extremely high carb amounts there really isn't any significant clinical evidence showing low carb being better for fat loss, particularly not at double digit bodyfat levels. So go for it.

  6. Im guessing im at about 200g+ right now... 1 cup oats this morning with a bananna, 2 cups milk, and protein (80 to 100g)

    burritio with 1 cup brown rice at lunch (50g approx)

    1 whole wheat cousins 2.99 sub (haha) (44)

    post workout shake blended with greek yogurt, protein, and frozen fruit (about 50)

    puts me at 220-240 and pretty much all good sources except my pwo and morning which was inteded for the insulin spike

  7. yeah, thats not bad at all. Since most people perform better with at least 150-200g of carb, whatever slight benefit there is from lower insulin levels usually is lost with the lower performance. So keeping the carbs in ends up with better net results.

  8. Now i just need to get my greens! thinking bout a small salad tonight and tomorrow im having a turkey wrap with lettuce for lunch... so do you think around 150 on a non lifting day is ok? id prolly keep the lunch a little lower with the wrap instead of having brown rice... or maybe brown rice later... im still up in the air about having a pwo after cardio... necessary or not?

  9. not really necessary, although there is some clinical evidence that taking in a moderate amount of carbs mid cardio helps with fatloss basically in the end there is so much conflicting or at least not supporting each other evidence out there that you are best off figuring out what makes you feel good, and go with that.

    Gotta hate when that happens - but, it's your body telling you something. Take the day off and get stuck back into it tomorrow. Hope you feel better by the end of the day!

    Ohhhhh. My bad All good, though. My first cycling coach used to tell me that, "You know you've pushed yourself as hard as you can when you throw up!" LOL Funny thing is, I know I push myself hard, but throwing up has never been an indication of it - if I throw up during or after training (which I did a few times for the first time ever last year), I know that something is wrong!

    Hahaha that reminds me of when I was in the Marines...boot camp specifically... the drill instructors used to tell us that in no way were we to stop during our pft 3 mile run and if we had to puke... "You will not stop, if you need to puke, you will do it while running" and I saw this more than once... as well as a guy diarrhea while running lmao

  16. Quick last minute poll! Yesterday I did back, triceps, and a little shoulders...

    Tomorrow... do I....

    1) Workout at home for bi's and chest with a combination of chin ups, db moves, and pushups

    or

    2) Jog to the park... at the park rotate between doing sprints, monkey bars, chin ups, and other bodyweight exercises... as well as... if I can pull it off with gloved on... climb the swing chains

  17. Quick update for week 4. I am going to take better measurments when I run out in 2 days but for now Ill let you guys know that my weight is down from 218 to 208.8 on a empty stomach. Still been working out but skipping cardio due to being back to landscaping for the season

    Still making progress (and lack of cardio is no biggie, since it's more a "want to do" re fat loss than a "need to do").

  19. Beginning of Month 2

    So month 1 dropped me 10 lbs and approximately 1.5 inches on my widest point. As much as I was enjoying my training I decided to switch it back up and go back to doing some heavy lifting... and damn did it feel good last week to do that.

    Usually after neglecting heavy bench for awhile I lose a ton of strength and since I was doing p90x workouts with pretty much all high rep push ups I thought for sure I was screwed on my flat bench... so last week I decided to start low at 205 which I thought was going to be more dfficult than it was since last time I was benching was for 220 for 3 sets of 10. Here is what I hit last tuesday with ease

    205 x 6
    215 x 6
    225 x 6
    235 x 6

    and I still probably had a rep or two in the tank! Dont as me how but it sure as hell makes me happy! Benching again today, we will see how it goes!

  20. glad to see you're still at it, homie!

    like you, I also seem to lose strength very quickly when I stop moving heavy weights for a little while! was surprised when I came back from my 3 week business trip to asia last week, and I could still db press the same weight I was doing before I left...that never happens!

    keep it up brotha!

  23. Today I did

    235 x 5
    240 x 5

    and I got ballsy

    275 x 1

    Then I did weighted chin ups with a 10lb weight 3 sets of 5

    Decline pushups supersetted with heavy (for me anyways) bicep db curls. 35 x 6, 40 x 5, 45 x 6

    Workout got cut short because before my workout I ran for like 20min, then did some full court suicide drills, and then did about 6 minutes of HIIT jog sprints

    Nat is doing well! Our weeks have been crazy lately. We both stood up in a wedding so we got a little out of control but in spite of that we have both continued to lose weight even with missing a few workouts. She down about 6 lbs and she decided to continue AT2 another month as well
