    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....

    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!

    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...

    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.

    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.

    Okay cool. I'm at about 3 sessions a week, but felt burnt out very quickly last week. I like the positive thought brainwashing part! Whatever you're doing, it's working!

    This week i will hit 12 total sessions between cardio and weights... My cardio is not that strenuous outside of the 15 mins of hiit....

    positive affirmation time:
    i go over all my day, all my cooked meals... What i will be doing at work... All that i want to get done that day while cooling down... Think about any slip ups the past couple of days and just figure out how to avoid them...

    Same. I have been sticking to mostly sprint stuff and tire flips, but don't recover as quickly. LISS just makes me sad. Might give epsom salt baths a try. That's a good affirmation.

    That's about 40 lbs in 4 weeks? Unless my math is incorrect.

    Side note: I purchased Trutein PB Chocolate. It's much more mild than I would have liked. Still prefer Cinnabun!

    Squats are in the dumper but everything else is ok.... Anything over 400 on squats just feels heavy, its hard to explain... Going to start adding back some calories in a couple weeks now... I am sure it will come back with a vengeance...

    Nope I totally understand the "feeling heavy" thing. Squats are the main struggle for me when I'm (rarely) in deficit. First to go, last to come back.

    Oddly my bench and DL really don't take a hit.

    It's really no surprise actually. The leaner you get the more cheat meals you may need. I ran a prep where I had two heavy cheats a week deep into my diet and I never stalled losing fat. They're very important for many reasons.
