My 8 week HST routine on the CKD/AD diet
03-21-2008 02:37 PM
Get it done bro and congrats on getting through the first week! No lie it honestly gets easier, im to the point where only once in awhile do I actually want carbs. I even feel guilty refeeding on the weekends because it feels like im cheating - when its actually an important part of the diet!

I go to the doctors on tuesday so im going to have him do a hormone panel so i can see what were looking at after about 8 weeks on the diet.

Alright now I havent updated in a little bit so here goes:
I had my 10rep max day and boy was it intense. I felt like puking about 3/4 of the way through because of how much it drained my body, I ended up hitting all my maxes and then some. Couldnt even go to the movies w/ the girlfriend because of how drained I was from being carb depleted and maxing out on basically every body part
Started my refeed on Friday night w/ dinner with the girl and continued right on through sunday night. This was the longest refeed i've done yet but it was easter weekend so i thought i'd just enjoy myself. Only drank on saturday night but I ended up getting hammered while bowling - oh well
Solid 5 rep workout, felt pretty good and moved right on through
Skipped cardio because the girlfriend is home on spring break
Got 3 hours of sleep the night before and ended up pounding out with the g/f about 30 minutes before the gym ( I never do this - always after or well before ). Even so I ened up having a really good workout until I got to hammer curls, while picking up the DBs I felt a real tightness in my chest. I took a second after doing my first set and walked over to get water and I felt like my heart skipped a beat :-(
I then got real light headed, did my next set of hammer curls and then decided that I wouldnt be finishing skull crushers or calf raises today.
Not sure why this happened as the day before I had a physical and the doctor told me my BP was 122/70, that I had a very strong sounding heart, and that I have excellent circulation. I did take RPM/Drive samples that were sent to me before working out ( I believe I took 3/3 ), this is honestly the only thing that had changed since I started this routine 5 weeks before.
Been pretty solid and I've stayed right on track still taking in ~2200calories a day.
This week I've decided to up my calories and took in 2500 on monday/tuesday and 2700 on wednesday.
Im going to work on keeping my totals around 2500 to see if I can make gains while still dropping the fat ( which I believe i've been doing but its hard to recover while doing full body - Im 209lbs and taking in 2200 calories, its taking a toll on me )
Super impressed with the change in my body, my girlfriend is constantly telling me how I look like im getting bigger ( muscle wise ) and losing my fat.
My chest is more solid than I can ever remember and my back seems to be getting freaky big freaky fast!
Guess the pics I posted really dont do my justice but Im happy and I am the one that is really important to me

Sorry I havent updated in awhile but the diets stayed right on ~2200calories a day and I've been crushing the HST routine.
Took my weight yesterday and it was 205 which means im down 10lbs since starting my CKD/HST and I've actually kept almost all my strength ( even went up on my incline bench )
I know I must have lost some muscle but I really think it was minimal, 10lbs in ~6weeks
The tri-lean system is amazing, i've really started dropping the weight after I started using it. I noticed the biggiest difference when I added the T-X.
I'll post pics again in 2 weeks
