    At 290lbs a guy can carry a ton of water. Shoot I have even seen sub 200 guys manipulate water to gain/lose 10-15 pounds in a two day period. Agreed though, 27lbs in 2 weeks is a lot assuming water manupliation was not part of the equation

    I was definitely holding a ton of water, was eating pretty free trying to set some Deadlift and squat PRs... Lost no measurements off my arms or legs....

    How does the PB compare to cinnabun?? CB is so good I order it every time.

    And how's the transformation coming along?? I think you might be beating me! 20+lb loss?! Beast.

    chocolate peanut butter cup might be better....atleast equally good...

    Transormation is going good... averaging 10 workouts (am and pm) every 7 days...

  11. Are you doing cardio am & pm!

    AM:30-45 Mins liss or sometimes 15 mins liss, 15 mins on the battle ropes or flipping the tractor tire for 20 second rounds... I always have atleast a protein shake 30 mins before i start my cardio...

    PM: Weights.... I literally start and end my day with a meal, if you count the shakes its about 7-8 meals during the day... Getting zero calories because my blood sugar is constant... I am not saying this is an optimal way to eat but it is keeping my from shooting myself in the foot by making a bad decision because my blood sugar is low....

  13. On a related note, i have never been this lean before.... i got down to about 10 lbs heavier and did not have this mass..... I am getting myself calipered again saturday, looking forward to seeing where i am at...

    Damn! Keep up the good work!
    Good to know that this is working for you so well.
    Keep us posted!

  18. What are you doing for HIIT! Great progress! Is it the battle ropes and tire flipping? How often a week! Most suggest sprinting for HIIT but obviously what your doing I'd working well!

  19. Havent read though whole thing but I personally, as a trainer, feel your beginning was no good at all. There are a lot of things that are taken into account but I personally would've had you start with a maintenance level of only clean foods just to see how your body responded to that alone with a 40/30/30 split (pfc). This way the possibility of metabolic damage down the line is reduced or nullified. At the beginning of a recomp my clients complain about being full all the time yet still lose weight consistently.

    I was shooting for a quick 6 week trim down for the cellucore challenge... Once the six weeks are over we are going to add more calories (over time) in and go for a slower approach. i have about 3 weeks left...

    I watch all the biolayne vids, i would not continue this low for too long..

    Thanks, been killing it... Averaging 10-11 separate workouts per week...

    The one thing i am amazed at is the eating every 3 hours thing... There is really no scientific evidence supporting that it is any better than eating less meals but it is working for me... It is helping me consume more protein than i ever have (350 grams per day)... No cravings at all due to constant blood sugar... I am really impressed.

    Everything is easier, i have gotten a bit weaker due to the sever cut but i will fix that when this 6 weeks is over...

    Hoakie is my split:
    i just came off about 6 months of hitting everything twice a week... I am enjoying working out each part once a week now...
    sun: back day, its also my cheat day... big meals after my workout
    mon: (am) liss/hiit | (pm) off, usually grilling my food
    tue: (am) heavy bag | (pm) legs
    wed: (am) liss/hiit | (pm) shoulders
    thurs: (am) liss/hiit | (pm) arms
    fri: (am) liss/hiit | (pm) off
    sat: work out once, hit chest, sleep alot

    I do hiit on the ropes alot... as the week goes on i tend to increase my time off in between rounds because i am burning off the stored glycogen from Sundays cheat meal.. Stress tends to drive my hiit as well. If i am angry or upset over something i have to do hiit to release the pressure. I do all of it in a violent explosive manner after a 15 minute warmup on the precore machine... I try and get a 10 minute cooldown after a 15 minute hit session..

    I really need to get a more sensible system for HIIT in regards to my leg day, my squat is in the dumper, i know its mostly because of diet but my legs are dead...

  23. one more thing... I looked like dried dog sh!t in the high 250s Friday morning.... I weighed myself upon waking... Ate a steak and potatoe (with salt) put on about 8 lbs and looked and felt completely different.

    I am looking forward to this 6 week drive being over so i can start to really examine how carbs are effecting my mood, performance and looks... The clean fats and proteins are easy... Its the carbs/salt that are wicked.

  24. Great info! I really appreciate the breakdown!

    I feel you on that. I'm prepping for a show and am now under four weeks out. I'm trying to drop into a lower weight class and am continually looking leaner but not losing weight. Drives me bonkers, but unfortunately I have to weigh myself nearly every day to monitor how my body handles my twice per week refeeds.
