It is really hard to actually flex and take photos. I apologize for the shakiness and terrible lighting.

I was huffing it when i got to the gym. It got me pretty pumped for the workout though seeing as my warm up set for alternating hammer curls was 30sx30reps.

Is your raw oatmeal exactly that, or do you soak it?

I like to soak mine overnight with flaxseed but quite often I'll eat it cold the next morning. Delicious!

Came off a 36 hour shift and then had to errands, and then hit the gym. Fasted for 15.5 hours today. Todays workout was pretty good for the circumstances.

Ran to the gym (1 mile)

Stretch

BB Dead Lifts:
135x12, 225x8, 315x4 (tore a callous on my left hand OUCH), 315x2, 315x2, 315x2 (every time i got to two the pain in my left hand got to an almost unbearable point, thus no sets over 2 after that)

Seated DB Shoulder Press:
35sx14, 50sx8, 60sx5, 60sx6, 60sx7 (very happy with using 60s for three working sets, see last shoulder press day for reference)

Decline Bench Plate Pullovers:
5 sets of 45 lb plate x 15 reps (these were tough at the end, I think i only did 45 lbs at 5x10 last time i did them)

Then did some pull-ups/chin-ups on the assisted and lost track of weight/reps/sets because I just kept switching grips between neutral/chin/wide pull up/wide chin up (ouch) with little to no rest. My back is screaming already.

Incline DB Flys:
25sx17, 40sx7, 50sx6, 60sx5, 60sx5 (had help on last two reps of last set, glad i almost made it two sets on these 60s)

1150 jump ropes

Ran back home from gym (1 mile)

I think I need to cut my calories back a little. I have sort of stagnated my weight loss (3000-3200 kcal a day average), but this could also be due to other factors such as hardly any sleep at work on shift.

I am counseling with Derek Treesize for workouts/nutrition starting tomorrow to help get me to 8% bf. I will post some nutrition after the last meal.

Hey Matt, great thread you have here.
Just wanted to ask about the fasting,
why do you fast for so long each day?
What benefits do you get from this?

Not questioning what your doing just interested in what effect it has on your training

Visit the leangains.com site. It helps with staying lean or losing bodyfat while gaining strength.

01. Fucking nice Indecision shirt.
02. The fact that you run to the gym makes you that much harder.
03. Depending on how long you cut, you're going to be shredded by the end of it.
04. Holding your phone to take a picture while you're flexing is one of the most frustrating things in the world, especially if you're trying to do it after lifting to catch the "pump."
05. How long have you had your calories set at 3,000? I know when you start logging your intake was lower than that (if I remember correctly, I didn't look back) but since your activity is pretty high, I'd be curious to see how you'd do with dropping them back down.

I'm a big believer in fasting when done properly. I should get my arse into gear and have a go myself but I'm scared of it affecting my powerlifting training.

A few of my friends do it and they're definately not short on energy, they've always said I should give it a try but yeah... I guess I'm a bit of a pussy.

So far i actually find the daily fasting a lot easier than the traditional 6 meals a day approach. On IF i usually eat two large meals and a small meal or large snack. I dont have to cool alllllll damn day like i used to. I have actually been gaining strength and losing fat.

Thanks vegansludge, i am hovering around 15% bf right now and my goal is 8-10% bf for now. The original plan was 2000 which wound up being around 2400 a day, but with all the activity and working out i ended up eating around 3000-3200. I am going to try to start cutting back to 2500 and see what happens. Going to slowly bring them back down so i will probably do 2850 tomorrow.
