figure i should post something in here every now and then

finished a cut very nicely, bottomed out at 182.0lbs which i haven't been since high school! I was also very dry (as in, did a full water fast the day before, and then a dry fast on the day of my weigh-in). next week i binged. cutting a little this week to re-do that, and doing a slow lean bulk. currently at like 188lbs ish. Hard to really gauge my weight since i do a lot of fasting, both water fasting and dry fasting. freakin love fasting.

love using full day fasts for cutting. the benefits are amazing. i even did a ~65hour fast to finish off my cut with a couple of ~14hr dry fasts included in there. you don't even get that hungry. helps me sleep very well, too. it's amazing. minimal strength loss and i love not having to cut for months at a time.

lifts are like... squat 295x5, RDL 385x5, incline db bench 90x8 (pr is 100x6, goal is 100x10),
i miss playing basketball. i gotta find a qualified PT near me, get some MRIs of my knees, and take this SERIOUSLY. my cardio sucks man. i'm 26 now and i should start caring about cardio.

Whats my goal now? why do i lift? tbh, i just want to stay looking good and be healthy. i also hate having a fat face. after a certain bodyweight it's like boom my face is fat and bloated and it's a huge difference.

 my target strength levels squat 405x1, db incline bench 100x10, rdl 495x1, chin up maybe +100x5. if my knees seriously heal up, maybe ill go kingfish and just work back up to a 455 squat like i used to have and work on that 40" standing vert. but it's not so important to me anymore. would be cool as hell though.

thinking of doing some kind of martial arts in the future, God willing. men are the protectors and maintainers of women, and i need to get on that. i have the job part down (not a crazy salary but enough for me) and the physique, but i've never been in a fight in my life lol


work has been real good to me. been having a lot of work from home projects. got hotspot on my phone, i work on my laptop while driving with my friend, or local dunking donuts, sometimes i log in to check my mail while at the gym eating my preworkout clif bar at the table, etc. not having to commute saves so much time, and wakign up at 5:30am daily on top if that is just amazing. i wake up and have a few hours to kill before i have to sign on. can even take a mid-day nap as part of my lunch break without anyone knowing.

been really slacking on learning my arabic, but i'm picking it up here and there very slowly. very cool to listen to the dawn prayer recitation and understand some things here and there. what a sick language (at least the standardized Arabic is). i could go on and on about the very basics of the root system and how even individual letters have characteristics, so beast. i think i posted before about how when i started to pray 5x a day, all of a sudden i didn't need as much sleep. wide awake by 7am -- not just awake, but like fully functioning awake on 6hrs of sleep (unusual for me). i was guessing that the change was due to entering a deep sleep much quicker. i got a sleep study done for suspected sleep apnea and they discovered that within three minutes of falling asleep i was entering REM. They want to test me for narcolepsy now lol. kind of confirms my guess of falling into deep sleep very quickly, but to be fair i dont have this data on me from before praying 5x/day



some meals i've been having recently, home cooked:

some beef patties with olive oil, spinach, mushrooms, onions, salt pepper paprika cayenne, then i threw in some eggs on top and melted provolone and gouda in:





home made halal guys, thats cauliflower rice in there (tastes amazing) with some veggies and idn what spices. got the sauce from halal guys, this thing tasted incredible, probably better than the famous cart itself:



Then my other friend came over and melted some cheese on top and seasoned it more... the cheese melted even more afterward (not pictured):



meatballs stuffed with cheese, aka meatbombs. also some zuchini salad, tastes so freaking good:



steak with provolone and parm crust, cauliflower rice and avocado:





i don't eat like this every day. usually its a protein shake, some greek yogurt combos: fig preserves + crushed cashews, honey + granola + banana, strawberry preserves + black seeds, and some eggs with a bunch of random stuff thrown in

Incline DB press back up to 95 x 5
PR was 95 x 8 (or was it 10?) and 100 x 6

switched to chin ups from doing pull ups for years. Ever since i started training i was doing chin ups. switched to pull ups thinking it would help my posture more. but you know what, i keep cheating on my form anyway by making my elbows point forward instead of the sides. so i switched back to chin ups for consistency. and they feel much better anyway. currently at 70x4 ish

RDL at 375x5. now that i'm bulking and eating a lot of carbs (but more healthy ones, oats, dates, honey, not too much junk food) i'm having crazy fast recovery. i do an upper lower split and i'm thinking of working out 3 days in a row lol. i've never done an actual proper bulk before - usually i get more protein on a cut than a bulk lol because i eat like a fool when "bulking" in the past. this time i'm trying to bulk with 200g protein per day minimum, and be at a 500cal surplus on lifting days but 0cal on rest days.

kind of want to start focusing on incline BB bench. reasons: eventually DB is just going to get very inconvenient. the first rep gets near impossible to do without a spotter. and the dumbells can very so much from gym to gym that sometimes i have to use DB's 10lbs lighter than at another gym to get all my reps in. problem with BB incline is that i prefer a lower incline than what most gyms already have set up - and they're usually set up on non adjustable benches like my local gym. whatever, i'll aim for the 100x10 first before worrying too much about what to do

might start RDLing twice a week. right now i squat on on day and RDL on the other. but i may add RDLs after squats on squat day instead of doing back extensions. then i can do prone leg curls, abs, calves

omg at some of that food pron. i'm starving.

nice info about the fasts. I don't really fast, but I do try to eat less once I find myself becoming "overly addicted to food", ie when i become hungry too often/eat way too much/spend way too much on food. always feels great lightening up the diet, going longer without food etc.

work has been real good to me. been having a lot of work from home projects. got hotspot on my phone, i work on my laptop while driving with my friend, or local dunking donuts,

lol'd. can't escape the dunk game.

Lol damn i make a lot of typos. Lots of times they are grammar errors and really just make me look like i dont know english! Especially while texting. So eg the d is next to the s, so at times ill accidentally change the tense of a word. “He has saves the game” instead of “he has saved the game,” etc.

I have more food porn on my phone. Keto pizzza, lots of different greek yogurt combos. Greek yogurt with fig preserves and crushed cashews is heavenly. In the fridge i have greek yogurt with toasted oats n black seed, and honey right now. Greek yogurt with honey, banana, and granola is another tasty combo. Oh and also greek yogurt, strawberry preserves, and black seed
Just freakin love greek yogurt. Good casein before bed

some more food pr0n for adarqui:

greek yogurt, dates, black seed, honey:


Greek yogurt, toasted oats, black seed, honey:


panini made with a roll, chicken salami, bulgarian kashkaval (cheese), provolone, spinach, mushroom, vegeta seasoning, and some ajvar on the side:


keto pizza with ground beef and spinach:


cauliflower rice with veggies:


balkan desserts:






the greek yogurt and oats combo is unreal for appetite suppression. dat fiber, dat casien protein... and tastes great! easy to toast the oats in the oven
the cauliflower rice is like 250cal for that full piece of tupperware. also great for being full on less cals.
could have gotten a much cheesier  :o pic of the panini but whatever
