Ramadan is coming soon. That should help with that soon. Unless you start binge eating once you break your fast.

I already do nafl fasts here and there. Also helps that we eat 3 dates and then go into magrib prayer - gives the dates some time to settle in the stomach before having the real meal so you end up eating less overall. Also eating the sunnah way when possible seems to help: sitting on floor, using three fingers to eat instead of silverware, and eating small morsels at a time

Good Job Man. You are more consistent then me.
Man. I am unable to do all that. But it's good to see that it's helping.

Which part looks tough for you? Are you referring to having just a small iftar before maghreb and you just go all out on the food or what lol


Weighed in at a dry fasted 192lbs yesterday, or maybe 193lbs i forget
Crazy how much water weight one can actually hold

I def go all out then regret it after I can't breath lol. Strange how fasting effects your stomach and makes you feel fuller quicker than normal.

Fasting probably shrinks your stomach or something. But yeah man just eat 3 dates drink water and pray maghrib in congregation, make dhikr, and then 2 sunnah rakats. Should be like ~12min time total. Enough for the dates to settle in a bit and so it should curb going all out after that for the main meal lol

Incline DB benched 100x6!!! That ties my all-time PR. I think i weigh heavier than the last time i did it though

Binged today again. Freakin halal guys...

Squatted 315x5 as well. Been about... a year since i was at that weight? Also RDL’d 405x5 earlier this week. PR is 445x6 i think, somewhere around there

I cant believe squat singles of 405 used to be my bread and butter. What the heck. Thats so unreal to me. Not trying to say its impressive, but rather just the fact that it feels so out of reach for me right now yet i used to be at that level. It feels unreal that i used to do it.

Got some more food pics   :ibjumping: lazy to upload and post now. 2:34am, time for an hour or so of sleep. Had too much tea.

ya it's ridiculous how fast we lose strength. it's one thing with strength & vert training that bothers me.

anyway. might be out of reach for you now but, you always making big progress when you really focus. but also no need to rush it either.

^ Oh yeah if I go back to my squatting 3x a week no doubt i can get back up to 4 plates quick. I'm just thinking long term. Don't want my hamstrings to fall behind and cause any imbalances. I remember this program being the most effective for me for squats:

monday - squat x4, x7, x7, 90sec rests
wednesday - squat x2
Friday - squat x4, x7, x7, 90sec rests

if i hit 4 reps, increase by 5lbs. So that was about 90% of my max. Same with the 7 rep work. If i hit both sets of 7, increase. The wednesday squatting for 2 reps was the same weight as the Friday following it.

The combo of high frequency, intensity, low volume but still some metabolic adaptation from the short rest period seriously boosted me

RDL at 405x7 now. Did not expect to be gaining strength tbis ramadan. Not even getting much protein. Weight is around 194lbs fasted. Looking to cut afterward. Hard cut, get down to a fasted 187 or so and go back to my clean bulk

Incline db has dropped to 100x5 for a few workouts now. Rdl went up to 405x8 after a day of pigging out. Those glycogen stores really make a difference
