Anyway you can separate your lifting & cardio? I sometimes do cardio after weights but I also do very short training sessions. You get more bang for your buck with cardio when your blood glycogen levels are low & the 2 best times are after weight training & first thing in the morning. I have always gotten a little better fat loss by doing cardio in the morning and been able to maintain/gain strength better while dieting by separating the two. By my count your last training session had 22 sets which is not a short session. Let's say your weight training is 1hr followed by 1hr of cardio so that's 2hrs which to me is too long and I bet in your case it's even longer. If you were to continue this for a long period of time without the use of any anabolics the combination of the long training sessions and the low calorie diet would cause you to lose muscle mas and strength. Speaking of which if your strength drops increase your protein intake or shorten your training sessions or both.

Myself, I like shorter, more intense cardio sessions. I'd rather do 20 minutes of intense cardio than 1 hour of regular paced, boring cardio! This is my personal preference! Go hman!!

Don't quote me here because it's been a longtime since I read the specifics but I think under normal circumstances it takes 20min or so before you start to burn fat. After a workout or first thing in the morning you will start to burn fat faster but I think it is still something like 10-15min before this happens. If you are only doing 15min that may not be enough. I do 30min sessions but 15-20min of that is fat burning where as in your case it's 0-5mins. High intensity cardio will burn more calories but only a little more fat than low intensity. I used to do a high intensity version that was like wind sprints and it was very effective. Now I only do low intensity cardio and save the high intensity for the gym. Both high or low intensity are fine; high intensity little faster results, low intensity more consistency & longevity which can equal better results depending on a persons dedication. Classic tortoise and the hare scenario. lol

Cardio tonight was not good. I ran for 45 mins but it took everything I had to keep going that long. Not sure what is was exactly. I think it was a little mj I had early. Whatever it was it hard. Weight losses seem to have slowed down alittle.

I just had a little something to mention here. in the 3ad logs, they mentioned their recommendation of 20g of fats with 3ad dosing. I've been trying that the last week or so as I went into a strict CKD, and I think its made a difference. just wondering what you think, and what you are taking it with

interesting. yeah, I started while doing TKD, so breakfast + PWO included some amount of carbs, and so breakfast also was lower fat then.

Thats a toughie. Basically the point of methylation is to provide oral bioavailability, so in that way it shouldn't make as much a difference. But I think even the methyls are more lipophillic than hydrophillic, so they should help as well. Patrick Arnold talked about it a lot (taking fats with compounds) but then again I don't think he ever sold anything methyl. I gotta go look around Definitely it can't hurt if you are doing it like thundergod, high dosed fish + 3/6 oils during most methyl cycles are just good insurance for your cholesterol levels, as well as joints on dry compounds

Thanks Easy and Bassgod. I always take the 20 grams of healthy efa's everyday whether on-cycle, PCT, or even afterwards. Just wanted to know if it helped. It was my own opinion that it does. Thanks guys. THE THUNDERGOD
