    Wait, what? That sounds really, really uncomfortable.

    C3:W1 21/9 Deadlift Still no PR. Ugh. I don't mind the weight too heavy, it's just I have no energy to complete the reps before wanting to pass out. I'm going to scale back the volume going forward and build back up once I have some level of normalcy again. Warm up: 1x5 50kg 1x5 65kg 1x3 80kg Main: 1x5 85kg 1x5 100kg 1x5 110kg (ugh. UGH) BBB: SQUAT 1x3 60kg (I knew I wasn't making it to 10, so I stopped, increased the weight and scaled back so I could still get in a decent workout. 3x5 70kg Accessories: Lat pulldown: 3x10 80 No more. Went home because ugh. Calories: 2073 36g carbs (12 of which were sugar) Steps: 9460

    This might be my new favourite gif Oh and I completely understand this at the moment. Everytime I go past a petrol station on my drive home I find myself slowing down and thinking of pies or chips, or something.

    20/9 REST! Diet: 2100 cals 55g carbs (23g sugars, so I'm on target, right?) Steps: 7500ish (Had a 2 hour meeting with the bank, so didn't get to walk, eh. Whatever. Still pretty good considering) I'm still getting used to this diet so I'm just overall a little fuzzy at the moment. Pretty sure I need a bloody holiday. Tonight is deadlift and squat BBB. I'm definitely NOT feeling pumped up for it. Last working set is 110kg AMRAP so I should hit that PR but it'll be the only thing I progress in the near future I suspect. I know it's a goal shift, and I'm on a caloric deficit but I was really starting to get used to actually progressing every week. Right now I'm at work and about to go office space on a couple of printers. May not need to work out later. Will post pics if I go postal. Edit: down a kg in 3 days. Dat water weight!

    Normally, same! It almost seems like a silly fad but it is pretty great for getting in extra fats and stuff. The rest of my coffees (very many) during the day are all black.

    C3:W1 19/9 BENCH I won't be hitting any PRs anytime soon. Warm up: 1x5 35kg 1x5 45kg 1x3 50kg Main: 1x5 55kg 1x5 65kg 1x5 75kg (Just had no strength. Still getting used to no carb I guess?) BBB: Overhead Press 5x10 32.5kg Accessories: Close grip bench: 3x10 50kg Tricep rope pulldown: 3x10 whatever 3/4/5 means. Pretty sure each step is 10lbs Cardio: Tabata ropes Diet: Monday: 2144cals 49g carb Tuesday: 2174cals 50g carb So far so good. Definitely feeling beat to shit lately and I'm pretty sure it's because I went from 200g of carbs to 50 with no turn around or warning or scaling down. Though last night I did have a work emergency with lead me to sitting at the table with my laptop eating quest bars and coke zero until 1am so I should probably log that for today... Also had a beer because I was pissed off with the whole thing. Beer is advertised as low sugar/carb so there is that? Right? Rest day today. Everything hurts and I need it. Last random thought. First time I tried bulletproof coffee I hated it. I was looking forward to it this morning though. Acquired taste, or doing what I need to?

    haha funny! If you check my wearable history you can see when I first got and when I got over Pokemon Go. Average steps went from 13000+ to 5000 a day. I might have to give it a second chance. When I'm not so starving. I'm currently looking at a protein bar and wishing it was banana bread.

    Additional Goal: Try to walk a minimum of 8000 steps every day, and if I don't a 10 minute walk every day. Pace doesn't matter, just trying to up the step count and the low impact cardio.

    Diet and goal update: Today is the first day of Keto (Proper Keto). I am going to be doing this for the next 3 months, longer maybe depending on results and cravings. Me and the wonderfully supportive better half are going to be doing this to drop a few kegs in the next few months. I'm going to be calorie and macro tracking and I'm going to try to add it to the log. Like a lot of other people in these parts I can't promise to do it every day but I may bulk upload the diet stats once a week. Aiming for 2000-2200 calories a day and keeping under 15% carbs for the first fortnight as I get used to this again. My aim is to be under 70g a day. From previous experience from Keto and peeing on sticks this'll be fine to keep me in ketosis. I'll dial it in over the next few weeks to under 50g and will hope to go lower if needed. This obviously changes my goals, but truth is I've been eating to gain weight for the last 6 months. I lost 5-10cm from my waist(Not sure I didn't track properly), I can see my lats again and my legs are a completely different shape so I've bulked reasonabnly successfully without changing my weight in any serious way. Starting weight was 105kg and now I weight 109kg. I'll start a cut and change my calories up depending on strength and stamina loss. This entire process is going to be a trial to learn what works best for me. Last time I did keto, I didn't make many gains, but I did lose a ton of fat without losing any strength, so if that happens again I guess I'll be pretty happy. Then again I was doing a really crap bro split in the gym last time too... So my first goal. Mini goal is to just be under 100kg and my main weight goal is going to be 90kg. I'm not putting a time frame on this though because I want to also be 15% body fat. I suspect there will be another mini bulk in my future to get to this. Maybe. I should properly get an assessment done on my lean body mass vs fat vs whatever the hell else it is that people find out about themselves. TL;DR I'm starting keto. 2000-2200 cals -15%carbs for the first 2 weeks. -10% the next 2 weeks. Assess with sticks from there. Drop from 109 to under 100 for first mini goal 5/3/1 update: I'm going to continue the way I'm going. It's not recommended to do BBB while cutting which I completely understand, but I crave the volume, and if I go down to 40% 1rm and focus on speed, that plus my tabata battling ropes should be great conditioning to lose fat while at the very least maintaining strength. I'm going to play it by ear and see how I go. If the DOMS increase too dramatically from lack of food and carbs I'll obviously have to reassess. I'm giving the next month a trial and I may have a goal log next month with this in mind depending on how I go while finding what works and what doesn't. TL;DR Nothing is changing in my weight/conditioning routine

    Everything hurts.That was the least deloady, deload week I've ever done. Tried to wake up early and hit the gym for my last day of the week but that didn't happen. Unless I get an uncontrollable urge to work out tomorrow during the day I'm going to call rock climbing making up for the overhead press day and skip the workout on my app.

    Hey all So after a fair amount of lurking the forum I've decided to try and keep up a log. So, I'm 31. Weigh 106kg and am looking to drop fat while maintaining (building if I'm extremely lucky) muscle. I have no idea of bodyfat % but I'll see how I go with posting and may throw up some progress shots. I'm sure someone will have a much better idea than I do. The backstory is I haven't lifted for 5-6 years, but when I did I was damn strong. Unless anyone is curious I don't think the numbers are that important, and besides that, they just make me sad to look at now. Current Program: 5/3/1 BBB Current Lifts (Haven't truly tested my 1RM): Squat: 95kg 130kg Deadlift: 110kg 140kg Bench: 75kg 95kg OH Press: 55kg 62.5kg Diet (As of 18/9/17) Ketogenic 2000-2200cals < 50g Carbs a day Goals: Drop 10kg by end of the year (ish. This can happen much sooner, or on the date. First goal is to weigh less than 100kg Feel free to drop a line and let me know what I'm doing wrong, or suggestions and such. I'm going to try and get in all my workouts and the odd random thought, rant about whatever I'm watching on TV, meme. We'll see how things go.
