Yes, I know... but I am very hectic with all this, really... I do, more or less, what I feel like doing depending on my mood and the time of the year I am in... Summer here is burning hell so I try to go as short as possible while working out, so HIIT is great... then I discovered that it is what I really like for cardio (except for swimming I hate, truly, all "convencional" forms of cardio... running, eliptical machines, steps/stairs, cycling... I get bored to death and end up quiting because of it, and they take too much time of my schedule).

 

Reading you guys and some other forums on this matter I know I am completely anarchick in my training and my eating but it seems to work for me... don't know, maybe good genetics or something...

I really think HIIT is an individual thing. I am back on the cardio train as I'm stalled in my cut, but I dialed the intensity back a ton. Before I was doing an hour at as fast of a pace as I could maintain, and it absolutely nuked my recovery. This time I am going at a much easier pace for the same amount of time, and so far (which is like 2 days) I feel OK. A little hungrier but not too bad.

One thing that helps me get through the mind drain of cardio is a tall ass table and my laptop. Medium pace I can just ride and watch Youtube and shit.

Moved into the new apt in Chinatown, pretty nice place but one of the bedrooms is tiny which our roommate didn't tell me and we're pissed about. Whoever gets it is definitely going to be paying less, you can fit a full size bed and maybe a dresser in there and that's it, and it's right off the living room with sliding doors that have a gap beneath so you'll totally be able to hear everyone in the living room.

Heard the NYU gym gets really crowded at peak hours. Any recommendations on a gym around Chinatown/Little Italy or NYU, or maybe off the D?

Restarting the cut tomorrow now that I'm getting settled in. Excited to shop around for cheap food. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

so I just randomly squatted and benched 4 days straight last week then took 3 days rest while overeating, and today hit PRs in both lifts. Real or fake progress?

Is spinning a good way to lose weight. I know spinning blah blah, but my girl has a bike just sitting gathering dust, and if i can exercise in my living room while watching tv im down.

Has it been effective in your cut?
post #54747 of 57266

Any form of exercise can be "effective" in a cut if sustainable

What do you mean by fake?

Of course its possible to train very often with success.

On this one, I dont know yet. But I was at my leanest in NYC when I was biking into work 2-3 times a week.

Problem Im having now is my willpower is shot/shit. After my ride yesterday I rationalized killing a sleeve of graham crackers w/milk. So I'm gonna try cardio w/o eating after and see what happens. But I lost 25lbs or so w/o cardio.

TL;DR its worked for me in the past, need time to see it work now.
