Baby Wifey's Bucket of Happiness
Hey! This will be the log where I post up my workouts every week, my fitness progress and my thoughts on various supplements that I will be taking.
Body Type: Mesomorph
Body Fat: 16%
Weight: 160 lb
I would like to focus on losing fat right now, but at the same time maintain/gain muscle. I am on a recomp. Thus far I have successfully recomped, going from 23% BF to 16% while maintaining the weight of 160 lb. I was able to make this progress in about 8 months.
As of now, I would particularly like to see more definition in my shoulders/arms, abs and thighs. I know this will come as I drop body fat.
I am currently doing circuits with my weight lifting. Usually I do 3-4 full body movements in one workout. I am working out 3 days a week, and doing light cardio on off days.
Right now I am trying out Intermittent Fasting. I eat all of my calories within an 8 hour frame during the day (always revolving around my workout on lifting days). Workout days I am eating about 2800 calories, while on off days I am eating about 1200 calories. Workout days are high carb, while off days are very low carb. So, I am carb cycling and calorie cycling. This past week I have had great strength gains and have seen good fat loss results. If I begin to see a negative change or lack of recovery I will absolutely be changing my diet. But as of now this is working well for me.
Purple Wraath (CL)
Maltodextrin and Dextrose (intra workout)
Assault (MP) I take this on occassion when I need a Pre workout boost of energy
I may start taking Forskolin soon as well as using a topical fat loss product made by RPN called Eviscerate.
Consider these my starting pics. They were actually taken today.

GG is a great product! I've never had any muscle cramps while using it. I use two scoops intra workout and I get incredible pumps everywhere. It is awesome when I am doing high rep Hammer Curls supersetted with Overhead Tricep Extensions.

I take 2 g intra workout to help suppress cortisol. I'll also take a few grams on my low calorie days for the same reason. Then it's great to have when I feel like I'm getting sick. It's just a good, inexpensive supplement to have all the way around.

Monday and today I have gone to the gym. My strength has increased significantly since last week in nearly all of my movements.
Clean and Press: 85x2, 90x2, 100x2, 105x2
Weight Assisted Pull Up: Body Weight-60, -70x2, -80
DB Lunges: 25 lb DBs
Dips: Body Weight, -60, BW x last 2 sets
Cable Curls: 40 lb
Circuits are very different from what I have done the past few months. I'm used to lifting heavy, low rep and high sets. Now it is really the opposite. High rep, low set and much lighter than usual!
I always do my Clean and Press at lower reps and higher sets though (as you can see).
Last week I was only Clean and Pressing 80 lb for all of my sets. My strength was really down last week, and very high this week for C&P.
Last week for Dips I was only able to do my full body weight for the first set. All the others I had at least 60 lbs of assistance.

Nice work. Good to see you doing clean presses, i absolutely love them as a all around muscle builder.

Didn't realize you were that tall, lady Also, 1200 calories is really low, even for an 'off day'.
You're a good logger, and a female that does things the right way. Much respect :dl:

The 1200 is the fasting portion of I.F.
My cals are pretty low on off days too, and in fact we were reticent to take them so low. But, we decided to give I.F. a proper trial and that means low cals on some days.
We've already agreed, though, that if strength and energy levels start to suffer in result that we're upping them back to a more "normal" level.
Oh, and "I'm Here" BW

Clean and Presses work just about everything. That being said, most guys will incorporate them into a back or shoulder day.
I, however, could do them as a workout by themselves practically. 10x5 and then just collapse!
