gokix's summer kickoff!

  1. I refuse to give Romanians any credit for their deadlifts.


  2. Would substituting RDLs be more beneficial than DLs? So 3x12 RDLs? I think at my highest I was dead lifting 135lbs 1x5 and that was about 3 months ago.

    Yesterday was an off day but I still followed the IF schedule and got all my prots in! Yeah!


    Pretty good workout today. Nothing like sweat pouring down your face as you hit the last few reps. My shirt was soaked. Had a mild headache after my 1st meal and for about an hour once I got back from jogging. It was a bit of struggle trying to find my rhythm... once I found it the last half of jog was much better and I was able to finish strong. Glad I decided to wait until later in the evening because by then it was actually quite nice out.

    Squats are a great lift for glutes already! I've definitely noticed a change in mines, so I wouldn't be opposed to adding in Romanian DLs. I do like that DLs are a total bodywork out. Would I just replace it with Romanian DLs and drop DLs altogether? Or add them to my program?

    You can add them as a Hamstring and lower back exercise . It helps with learning proper DL form too!

    Would you advise 3x12 RDL and 3x12 DL on the same day or is that too much? I plan on incorporating RDLs next week.

    Perfect to do both in the same day. You could use RDLs as a warmup to the heavier DLs or do the opposite; blast your hammies w DLs and follow them up w the lighter-weight RDLs.

    I once again refuse to give Romanians credit for that lift.

  11. Bit of a different lifting mechanic for both exercises, so if you tend to be tripped up a bit by muscle memory, split them up on different days.

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    My feeding window is from 1:30-9:30 pm:

    ~20% first meal: prots + fats (e.g. cold cuts + skim milk string cheese)
    ~20% second meal: prots + carb source (e.g. plain greek yogurt + banana)
    ~60% post-wo meal: prots, fats, carbs (e.g. protein shake w/water + additional protein source like chicken, turkey, lean ground beef + side of veggies + can of tuna, no calorie dressing, romaine salad ... as long as I get my protein in I usually finish off the remaining macros with a slice or two of low carb bread w/pb for example*)

    *increase my carb intake on lifting days

  21. SAT LOG
    --------

    Front squats 3x12 w/barbell
    Box squats 4x10 @ 60 lbs
    Squats 4x10 @ 50 lbs
    RDL 4X10 @ 50 lbs
    DL 4x10 @ 70 lbs
    OP 4x10 @ 30 lbs

    I was going to do cardio, but opted for a light lifting session since it started to rain. Slept very little + training fasted = no energy. Deloaded the weights a bit and added an extra set. Also added in RDLs as advised by Caesar and sidious! My first time with RDLs so I'm starting off light. I could have added more weight to be honest, but either way I felt a nice stretch in the hammies.

    DAY 5 OF IF
    Been losing weight steadily since Tuesday, 4 days in. Yesterday was my HIIT day and I had ~40g of carbs in my last meal, making the day's total carb intake ~50g of carbs. Woke up today weighing the same as yesterday, so I guess I'll save the majority of carbs for lifting days since it seems I am carb sensitive.

    Gonna shoot for ~1500 cals today. If I can get a jog in, then maybe up the cals ~100.

  22. Lovin' the workouts ... keep it up girl!

    If you don't love it I will be surprised ... RecoverPro is my absolute favorite. Which flavor did you go for?

    I went with Red Raspberry

    So today will be my 6th day on the IF diet. The first three days (T,W,Th) I was dropping weight steadily ~2 lbs overall. No weight loss on Fri or Sat, just maintained it. Wake up today (Sunday) and I'm up +2 lbs. Let's see, last week my schedule went like this:

    Sun - Lift
    Mon - HIIT
    Tues - Lift
    Wed - Off
    Th - Lift + Cardio
    F - HIIT
    Sat - Lift

    I've been logging in my cals daily and eating within my time frame so... What the fudge? Not sure what I am doing wrong?

  28. Maybe do a kcal spike mid week. Trick the body.
    Carb cycling. AK gave me good ideas by eating low carb low cal 5-6 days week, then 1-2 days, smash the carbs and calories. But still yield a net deficit

  29. MON LOG
    ---------

    Front squats 3x12 w/barbell
    Box squats 3x12 @ 80 lbs
    Squats 3x12 @ 70 lbs
    RDL 3x12 @ 65 lbs
    DL 3x12 @ 75 lbs
    OP 3x12 @ 35 lbs
    40 min walk

    First day training fasted with BCAA. First impressions... tastes like sour candy. Added some ice to it and that seemed dissolve some of the tartness. Overall, I like it I just need to get used to it. Didn't like the taste of Whey Protein when I first started using it either.

    Added some weight to RDLs. Still working on form, because my lower back felt sore after I finished up. From RDL straight to DL and my grip kept slipping... probably due to sweaty palms from RDLs. Gotta work on that.

    DAY 7 OF IF:

    I didn't mean to work out so late, now I have about a 4 hour window left so I'm gonna get my eat on.

  30. TUES LOG
    ---------

    40 min walk. Dull pain in my left hip, so I tried to walk on the grass along the sidewalks when I could. Kind of weird considering the pain didn't hit me until after I got home from work. Also experiencing mild headaches throughout the day. Ah, there it goes again. Not cool. Yesterday was my carb up day, maybe my body is just responding to that, I don't know. Changing off days to LISS (after reviewing IF thread) with 1 day reserved for HIIT once a week.

    DAY 8 OF IF:

    1550 cals
