That is tough dude. That's my goal as well but I usually keep it under 70 or so. I cheat though. My shakes and supplements have sucralose.

On a somewhat positive note, the whole "dietary cholesterol is bad" thing seems to have been disproven

i feel like i eat a lot of fruit but i'm consistently getting under 70 g. a good 80% of what I eat I cook myself so it's easy for me to avoid sugar though. That being said, coconut juice (with the attendant sugar) is the greatest Post-workout drink ever--my local grocery has 4 16 oz cans for $5 and I'll snag a few on my way back from the gym. Drink one and I feel like a new man.

For the past couple weeks I"ve been cleared to hit the elliptical and get a decent sweat on, which is a good feeling even if it's a little weinery. I reached the point where 20-30 min of cardio just feels good the way lifting feels good, which feelsgoodman. Knee gets sore but nothing terribad.

Cut is going well, maintaining a 500-750 cal deficit. I'm down to 161 (from 167) but a lot of that is likely water weight. Most importantly, my clothes are fitting again.

Is that before or after a grocery bag full of Red Velvet Oreos?

Just looked up my sugar intake. 40-75g at 3800-4000 kcal of which 550-600g carbs.
My carb sources are pretty much only oats, pasta, rice and bananas. Also get some sugars from dairy products.

I'm at Intermediate at basically every lift out of these that I do. I expected Novice at best, seeing how I lift like a small, sickly girl.

Regarding the sugar thing... I checked my MyFitnessPal. When I cut on lowcarb it's 5-20g, when I eat normal it's 30 - 80g a day except for that one day I found that I obviously slightly pigged out at 280g shog[1].gif

I eat around 100-200g of sugar maybe? I binge on cookies or cereals after training so it adds up quickly. Don't you guys like eating sometimes wink.gif

It was never ''proven'' but it's sure nice to see that official committees are starting to reconsider their advise to the general population!

8 Sets of four reps would be standard, but four sets of 8 reps is useless? Explain?

I've been doing less exercises, but either pyramiding or trying to get 3-5 sets x 10 reps for the last few months and it's been pretty decent.

basically shorter sets means you can do work at higher percentages of your max, which in my sport is very much the key thing. volume is built through sets not reps since doing huge loads of submaximal stuff is really not conducive to progress in weightlifting.

just fucking with eason really

Atleast for now, I'm more comfortable working in submaximal loads to work on form and overall strength before pushing the weights. That entire injury prevention thing.

However, if you never go past 80% and do multiple sets of them, how the hell do you know where your form breaks down when you actually have to work hard? Not saying you should be 8 sets of 4, but there is a reason why 5x5 is a good medium for newbs (don't remember if you're one or not).

I like 4-6 sets of 2-3 or 4 for two similar exercises. Basically Sheiko.
