    "Intermittent fasting"?


  2. Yesterday I had a lil low food for breaking the fast thou, but it was ok.

    In the gym I trained Chest.

    Dumbbell flat bench presses: 30 or 35kg dumbbell for 12 reps.

    Dumbbell flat bench flyes: 10kg dumbbell for 17 reps.

    Incline wide grip bench: 40kg for 12 reps. Really could go like 60 kg for 10. Soreness has gone and I think I CAN try lifting a bit heavy.

    Decline bench press: 50kg for 12 reps. (over here again felt like I could go up with the weights)

    I am certain that I will take the weights up from now on...

    After the gym had like 200-300 gram of chicken along with 2 glasses of milk.

    and at 1am I was feeling a bit hungry, had a hamburger and some chocolate cookies :P

    The air conditioner is messed up! needs to b fixed!

  4. I'm trying "intermittent fasting" at the moment... It's great... I have gain strength, but lost a little size, fat included... Not a problem though cos I'm not planning on bulking anytime soon... Any tips?

    I think you should not have lost muscle while intermittent fasting... How's you diet like?

    My diet isn't the best as I suffer from ibs quite bad, as in I don't get enough calories(Average 1400cals per day) which is not good considering I'm a PT... I eat pretty clean... I need to start supplementing protein... This ibs is a bitch to work with as I get bloated quite easily when I eat too much & also certain foods... I take Kre-Alkalyn over Mono cos the bloat when loading... I take pre workouts... Drink plenty of water... I'm pretty sure I need to eat more...

    *& your right that your not suppose to lose muscle...

  8. the hodge twins are fasting..(youtube) and working seem to work for them

  9. I'm fasting as well and while it is difficult to only eat within a 6 hour window, I cant argue with the results. My strength isn't gone as long as I lift, but I've lost a decent bit of fat.

    Fasting for 16-20 hours has been shown to increase HGH levels in a man by nearly 2000%. Compound that with HIIT exercises and/or lifting and your body should be surging with anabolic hormones.

    I watch them too... That's what got me into it because I already workout on an empty stomach to burn fat...

    They are definitely gettin all kinds of gains from it...

    Eh bro wanna know how it's working for u. But here is some advice. Fast your days in a row because if u eat good then it's easier to fast in a row these to fast 1 day eat the second and fast the 3rd because your body has to adjust and it's harder. Just some advice I learned over the years lol

I am also haveing V less calories but still I manage to go to like 2000-3000 or maybe 4000 or more if lucky... and also I get bloated real easy also with certain foods.... I am also pretty sure that I need to eat more and clean :P

    nooo, he means that you should do fasting in a row... not like you fast 1st day, don't fast the 2nd and then again fast the 3rd. Like, be consistant with your fasting... don't break the fasting days cycle...
