My journey to cutting

Page 6 of 6 First ... 456

  1. Still making fantastic progress.
    If you are concerned with your strength loss,
    You might want to consider carb cycling.
    Great job so far.
    Peace


  2. You might also be a little fatigued and overtrained. Maybe just talking a week off will get you rested up. Just do some light cardio or something

  3. What's your diet looking like on a day to day basis??

  4. I'm averaging about 2300 cal about 50% carb 30% protein 20% fat. I have thought about taking a week off but I might not enjoy that. When carb cycling about how much more would need to consume ?

    By my calculations your only getting in 172g protein. You need to bump that up to at least 1g per pound of bodyweight. That will ensure that your muscles won't get broken down for for fuel.. Also carb cycling is when you adjust your carbs daily in regard to what your exercising. Higher carb for leg and back and lower carbs for shoulders and arms etc.

  6. Do you consume the extra carbs the day before your workout? I workout fasted @ 4am. And I do try to consume about 1 gram of protein per body weight some day I hit that mark some days I'm off by 10-15 grams. Sometimes I find it a bit challenging getting all my protein in and still staying below my calories. I was thinking of going up to maintenance calories for a few weeks to see how it gose then go back on a cut.

  7. Well due to a foot injury after yesterday's karate tournament I guess I'll be taking this week off after all . I'll report back Monday see if a week off help.

  8. Ok been really busy the last few weeks had no time to update my log. So as I mention I took a week off from the gym I also for the last two weeks have brought my calories up to maintenance level. It's been amazing not only have I kept my weight at 180 but my muscles are starting to look fuller and leaner. My strength level is not back up to wear I like but overall happy with my results so far. But the journey still continues. This weeks log
