Unwrap Your Abs For Christmas! Annual Holiday Weight loss self challenge thread.

Page 3 of 7 First 12345 ... Last

  1. Anyone care to post up how they plan to achieve their goals?

    For me, I'm lifting two to three times a day, 2 days on, 1 day off. Averaging about 15 workouts a week. Diet wise i'll be doing fairly high carb and high protein, low to moderate fats. I will be doing pulse fasts, pulse feasts, and regular eating days. Pulse fasting, is just pulsing protein/ bcaas only throughout the day. Pulse feasting is similar to Lean Gains except with a really short eating window, and pulsing protein/bcaas throughout the day. Should be pretty effective.

  2. Sure!

    Atm i am lifting 3 days a week and doing active recovery daily (narrow push-ups, pull-ups and lunges PLP style). Diet is pretty much leangains style fasting whenever i can ( i am chef so it messes things up little bit), training days high carb and protein little bit over maintance and offdays high fat and high carb 1700kcal daily. Starting cardio next week.

    2,5 Weeks from this moment i start lifting 4 days a week and make my diet go over maintance on training days and offdays are little bit under 2000kcals daily. Active recovery la PLP stays, im just switching to chin-ups and wide push-ups elevated.

    Im aiming to hit something like 78-80kg, i am 83,3kg on picture posted above, and on pictures inside my photobucket profile.

  3. I trimmed my hair up this week and it is obvious to me that in order to get down to where I need to be not to end up in a diaper I will not be able to do any relaxed dieting. I am going to really have to keep better track of my intake and macros in order to succeed here. Today I will take some time to write up a few meal plans for myself and then stick to them pretty strictly only really allowing for some cheating on Thanksgiving. The fact I just found out I have to travel in mid December and my diet will be hindered is not going to make that easy either. I will be lifting 3 times a week 2 full body circuits and 1 DC Style lift on Saturday. I am doing the lean gains 16/8 split for eating and going to lower carbs not gone but a good bit from what they have been as of late. Macros willl look a little more like 40p 40 fat 20 carbs, and a higher carb day on Saturday after the DC lift. This is just a general idea of how I will run it except a few days here and there. May add my lunch time walks back in as well.

  6. Well, this past week and a half has been pretty much useless. I've had some pretty severe turf toe, that was really hindering walking, let alone lifting... Its almost completely healed up now, so i'm going to be back at it starting today. Still expecting 7-8 more lbs of fat loss and 1-2lbs of lbm gain.

    Just wondering, what are you eating for most of your carbs?

  9. Yeah it can be done. My roof was literally caving in back in 09 when I was prepping for my show. I didn't have money to pay someone to do it and had to do all of it make shift style on my own. Didn't get in anywhere near the amount of posing practice I needed and was basically unprepared for my peak weak but I showed up in kick as condition.

    On the burn days pretty much blueberries and whatever is in my almonds and green veggies during the day then some ranch style beans at night. On build days whole grain pasta or bread, oats, banana, sometimes rice, ranch style beans again cuz I love them. I also have some waxymaize I will use on occasion. On saturday it is just more of the same but i can cheat a bit. Saturdays I may even go up to 4000 calories. It is a heavier build day. The others are for my lighter circuit days but I am doing a full body DC Style workout on Saturdays and I eat to grow. Sundays I have all my carbs in the morning for the family pancake day. I will have like 2 big whole wheat pancakes with sugar free syrup, then eat pretty low carb the rest of the day.

    Love pancake days, lol. Is unbleached enriched flour white bread(I always hear stay away from white bread) a type of bread you shouldn't eat?

  13. You know I don't know. I can't really stand white bread anymore. I don't even like the really airy wheat breads. If my loaf of bread doesn't feel heavy enough to hurt someone with I just don't care for it. Most of the breads I eat have 3-4 grams of fiber per slice. I go by that. Now my pancakes just are the Aunt Jemimah whole wheat ones.

    On another not I overtrained my leg and the back of my knee is messed up so I haven't been able to do cardio or legs this week. Not helping with my goals but I still seem to be leaning up a little just slowly. I have also decided to do drop sets instead of rest pauses while I am trying to cut. Keep the pace faster and will be less frustrated not concentrating a pure strength while trying to lean up.

  15. That would be post number 1, October 27th. I have lost some fat but I don't think you can tell in my abs. I will take some pics this Saturday. I have gotten some of my vascularity back in my arms and my waist is smaller but I don't think my abs look any better yet. I am 2-3 lbs lighter was going kind of slow at it thinking my hairy self was covering more fat than it was but I trimmed up and was not so happy with what was under the hair.

  16. Okay here are the pics from yesterday. Like I said I dropped some weight my waist is smaller my arms and legs are getting more vascular again but my abs haven't even budged. I will be dieting pretty hard and doing a lot of cardio over the next month but I kind of doubt that I will be able to achieve my goal. I do however have time to at least look really good doing it... Either way I need to start looking for a make shift diaper just in case... LOL

    If you think I am buying an entire box of depends to put on 1 you have lost you mind. LOL Thanks by the way. I am hoping that is some left over Thanksgiving food but either way I am on the way to the gym. Considering you have gained 4 lbs that means you need to drop 14 before Christmas... You buying depends??? By the way everyone who signed in on this is definitely getting a call out to honor it. Oh Yeah!!!!

  19. Well its good to know that I'm not the only one having trouble on the way to their goal. Keeping my ABS by Christmas doesn't look like its going to be a problem. The more I have dried out the better I have been looking. The downside is trying go keep that 10 lb gain in there. I'm up 11 right now, but I'm sure to drop 3-5 lbs sometime into PCT. So I need a couple more security lbs by Christmas. Because of that I've added Cal's into rest days...we will see!

  20. **** it. I'll be 154 by Christmas and under 13% bf. Currently sitting at 144 at 12-13%. Got a lot of work. I'll be happy if I can hit 150+ in all honesty though lol.

  21. Fack how did I miss this! Great thread so far.

  22. You are making great progress Chris, keep up the good work man.
    If my direct and cynical approach bothers you, just ignore it. I'm just saying what you need to hear ;).

  23. Thanks Matt, It is hard for me to see much of anything but I notice the vascularity. I have a quad vein coming out and my arms too. Those pics are unfed on Saturday so not much vasclarity in them. That and the lack of a tan has me washed out. Yet I definitely have my work cut out for me. Lean Gains is an awesome lyfestyle diet but I am going to have to count the calories and what not now. I will still be using Lean Gain but just counting everything to make sure I don't go over my marks for the day now. I was just eyeballing things and recomping but I won't make it to my desired level of leanness without actually counting my calories. At least not in the speed I want too anyway. I can do it slowly without counting and doing lean gains but with any speed it is going to take actual attention to detail.

    The beauty of of it is, you don't really need to knock your "food selection" to boring status, just like you said, make sure you are hitting your calorie targets, macros, etc.

    You have made visible progress so far, and once you do that, the gains are going to be much more RAPID, no doubt about it.

    If I would have seen this I would have joined up just for the ride. I love little things like this, they tend to keep you on your "A" game.

    With that plan you will be there Chris....I know it!!
