I have been basically training low volume for quite a while anyway with higher intensity, which I seem to respond pretty well to. I try to keep each session toWhenever I’ve trained keto there’s just no kind of endurance, so keeping sessions very abbreviated and keeping things heavier & lower volume is ideal for me. Get a stimulus and move on kind of thing.
Also, dry body weight this morning was ~187. Losing water fast, but expect that to stabilize here pretty soon and then see what we see.Legs
Calf Press: 180 x 11, 180 x 11
Seated Calf Raise: 115 x 7, 90 x 9
Leg Extension: 115 x 7, 100 x 8
Pendulum Squat: 70 x 8
Seated Leg Curl: 70 x 7, 45 x 9
Glute Bridge: 230 x 7
Had to nix the RDLs at the end. Definitely gonna split this into two sessions and move to:
Chest/Back/Quads/Shoulders/Arms/Hams+Glutes moving forward.
They make those ketone strips that seem pretty failsafe. I’ve never done keto but I did do carnivore for a little over 2 months. The first few days were hell with cravings. But I did eliminate the inflammation in my Morton’s neuroma, dropped to a new low bodyweight, and retained most strength. I was actually strongest I had ever been at that body weight. But I like pizza and being thickkkkkkk. A bold experiment though. I would highly recommend trying it once.I have been basically training low volume for quite a while anyway with higher intensity, which I seem to respond pretty well to. I try to keep each session to
I’m also not sure if I’ll truly hit ketosis? Not sure what the minimum carb situation for me to enter that would be, but I don’t expect to drop calories any further than they are now. Just hold this for 3-4 weeks before slowly increasing again. This was basically an immediate calorie drop from what I was eating while bulking, and a pretty damned significant one too, so I don’t expect it to be maintainable for long.
Just hoping to burn some fat off while my body fat percentage is high enough that the huge deficit isn’t a huge issue before trying to build some more muscle again.
Absolutely. Hopefully, I’ll be less small and weak then. And thanks man, it was an absolute slog for 7 straight years, but I finally got that part done. Still have to study my ass off for the next 10 weeks for the bar, but the end is in sight.@jimbuick Good stuff man, next time you are down here let's try to get together for a session or a meal or something. Would be awesome to see you again!
By the way, very proud of your efforts to get your law degree. I know how hard you had to work and the type of jobs you did to get through school so I know it was a ton of effort. AWESOME JOB JIMBO!!!!
Not much on that front. Ended up joining some friends in Rockport on Tuesday and just got back today. Also got the flu or something and came down hard on Thursday and am still feeling like death. Am hoping that I can kick this thing before Monday and get back on my usual schedule.Hopefully you can get those sessions in! I am sure you are craving them.
Unclear, but I’m gonna assume not well based on how poorly I have adhered to the diet lol. Lots of alcohol being drank and lots of bad order in food for the last week or two. I think last I checked I was hovering in the mid-180s and do look noticeably leaner, but kinda expected to have a little better predictability in my schedule and to better adhere to the diet.How’s the weightloss coming?
Honestly not that bad since they’re done with a tempo, but that’s also maxing out the stack, so I either need to switch machines or drop it to later in the session.Ow my knees hurt just reading about a 7-rep set of leg extensions
