I do carb cycling/keto below 10, that's why I track.

First month or two of a cut really suck, then u get over it. My only suggestions... manage energy during a workout as thats key, will keep up metabolism, morale and lifts. I still feel my BCAA + HBCD cocktail is unfukkwiddable and is also stimulant free which is key for me. Breakfast is a waste, u dont need it to sit at a desk. Drink coffee instead. Macro priority should be, IMO, slow carbs, protein, fats... u dont need a ton of fat, shit is generally empty calories. Cardio mite be good at the start to jump start metabolism and allow u to eat more but Im 13 weeks in and havent ridden my bike since March, still dropping fat. Etc. etc. Key tho is consistency, dont bitch out and have a damn pizza 1 week in lol.

*EDIT* O yea cheat days arent necessary IMO.... occasional cheat meal or IIFYM daily indulgence is better IMO. I have a candy bar like 3-4x/week. Sometimes I might replace a sweet potato with some cookies and milk. Pigging out the whole day, thats some Honey Boo Boo chile shit, unless u are bulking IMO.

Try PB Lean from myoatmeal.com. Tastes way better than PB2 and something like 22 billion? possible flavor combos

I wonder if thats "better" than push/pull/legs the same amout of days? Wouldnt mind doing deads 3 times a week really.

 

This is gonna sound pretty dumb, but its not like its impossible to squat, bench and deadlift every single day (although it can be questionable). Sure, it will suck in the beginning, but that's why you increase the frequency slowly, going from 2x a week (for instance upper/lower twice or P/P/L twice) to 3x a week with whatever setup or split you want. Just don't jump from once a week to 4x a week or twice to 5x. That can def mess up your knees, shoulders and elbows.

 

Its absolutely doable to do upper/lower 3x so you train 6 times per week. I would just rather do three fullbody sessions plus one upper. My progression in programming been over the last two years has been:

Upper/lower 2x (4 sessions) => Full body 3x => Got coach => Full body 3x + 1 upper => 5 sessions (bench on all five, squat on three, deadlift on two) => Now 5 sessions per week (bench, squat and deadlift every session, apart from one per week with no deadlifts).

 

Now I often go 5 days in a row without problems. Just adjust the volume per session down so you hit the same weekly volume as before with the lower frequency. Its mostly volume that causes fatigue, not frequency. Also lower the weights somewhat and you'll be fine.

I'd argue that intensity causes fatigue more than volume IME

I second this. My volume is way up and i hit the same muscles 2-3 times a week

Been doing full body workouts every day for the last 2 weeks. Squatting every day, benching or dumbbell pressing every day, rowing every day, hamstring curls and calf raises ever day, and shoulder stuff and triceps and pull-ups every other day.

Still only deadlifting once per week though.

I'll see how it goes for a month or so. I don't mind if it's one step backwards two steps forward. Linear progression has stalled anyway and I want to see how much frequency I can get away with.

One thing I have done in preparation is to narrow my stance as much as possible while still hitting depth. My hips are where niggles happen and I find a narrow stance somewhat preventative.

Same thing with bench. Gotta protect the shoulders.

God damnit.

Ordered a pair of Allen Edmonds and when I autofilled my shipping address, didn't realize it changed cut my apartment number off. Fedex tracking says it was left at my front door, but the address they have technically doesn't actually exist. I'm hoping they left it at the leasing office instead of some random apartment, otherwise they might have gotten swiped. baldy[1].gif

I always like to start my workout with something close to 1rm and then everything else is high volume and trying to feel the muscle I want to work.
