    Good to know that this is working for you so well.
    Keep us posted!
    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...

  3. 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.

  4. Great info! I really appreciate the breakdown!
    Lets Say you do everything that you are supposed to do. You check all the boxes. You Believe, you prepare, you work, you fight, and you know your why, and Life still catches you on your blindside..... Just remember Failure Is Never Final !!!!

    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!

    249 lbs before my cheat day.... The fact that i have been losing this weight while maintaining at least one cheat day a week is pretty cool... It has to be the hiit....

  24. and i have switched to a 93%lean ground turkey as a staple (chicken was killing me).... Mashing up a yam, tossing that in with the turkey... Soooo goood!
