been missing a lot of workouts lately.
weighed myself at.... 201.8lbs dry fasted. WHAT! That was fast weight gain lol.

Lots of volume today. Lowered the rest times on shoulder work from 90sec to 60sec since it's getting easy and I'm missing a lot of dumbells at my gym.

Cut starts Friday (today at the time of writing this). Planning an all day fast. Afraid my squat will suffer tomorrow due to not squatting since last week plus cutting, but oh well.

Slight decreases in strength. RDL went from 365x8 to 385x3, but I think th 365x8 corresponds to a higher max, especially since I couldn't imagine pumping out 8 reps of it today.

We'll see how much strength I can keep on this cut. Of course I'm low on muscle glycogen and all that stuff from all-day fasts so my strength noticeably dropped almost immediately, but hopefully it doesn't drop much further.

Lowered the volume since I'm cutting hard. Highly doubt I could have done one of my higher volume workouts today.
Again, strength is down probably due to way lower muscle glycogen levels. Basically I'm working out every other day and doing and all-day fast on my rest days.

Ideally i want to workout every other day and fast on the rest days, but that can't work since my gym is closed sundays.
So i'll probably do just 2 completely fasted days per week and eyeball a maintenance eating day on workout days. Workout days consist of pre workout meal 8am (usually some whey, oatmeal, banana and coffee), post workout meal 11am (more whey, some fruits, cottage cheese, etc) and then dinner 6pm or later (varies, an actual meal and more protein)

Trying to avoid processed sugars and get in complex carbs and casein.

Looks like my strength may have stabilized now after losing the glycogen.

hah nice @ the graph.

Haha yeah, i think it's nice to see numbers visualized for easy trend spotting. I'm guessing after the sharp drop in muscle glycogen and water weight, the weight loss should more or less slow down at about a pound every 4-5 days.

Ate again at night since I was invited to have some food... slowing down the progress but maybe it's for the better so i don't drop too quick

pretty sure my weight is "stabilized" now meaning any further weight loss is “real” and not just continued water and glycogen weight loss

Worked out at a different gym. Also had to work out while fasted (usually those are my rest days), yet I was still able to increase from 100x3 to 100x5 on the incline db bench. Goes to show how much it helps to have proper dumbbells to lift with, and a proper warm up scheme (lots of dumbbells missing at my usual gym).

Makes me wonder if, when I was at 100x5 at my current less than decent gym, would I have hit 100x8 at this gym?



Did not expect to drop another 2lbs. Probably due to lifting while fasting today - dryer than usual.

Had a bit of a re-feed after that 194.0 weigh in. Not sure if ill continue the re-feed the next day or what

Re-fed the same day of the 194.0lb reading (after weighing myself), and the following day.
Currently doing an all-day fast again, and should hit lower body tomorrow.

So I went from a 201.8lb dry fasted weight (after being carbed up) to a 196.6lbs dry fasted weight (after being carbed up).
That's a 4.2lb drop in 12 days. Pretty good. Haven't lost much of any strength yet either. In fact, my RDL increased.

I feel so much better eating less. I can't stress this enough. Much less laziness throughout the day, I don't sleep through entire mornings, etc. Of course it makes weightlifting progress stagnate, but I think this should provide me motivation to only do very slow lean bulks moving forward if anything. I don't want to lose this feeling of being light and awake.

The mornings after which I don't fast I am just wide awake. Even if I wake up in the middle of the night, like 2-3am and go pee... I'm very alert and aware. Not dragging myself back to bed like a zombie.
