It's really interesting here! Everyone seems to be quite friendly, interested and helpful. I made the experience that in most of the "ordinary" bodybuilding forums, there are a lot of idiots who write just crap or are mean or agressive with other members. I like the positive attitude of the guys here!

That's what I like as well, flaming and/or trolling is pretty much non-existent over here. If and when it does happen it gets taken care of pretty quickly.

I know, calorie intake is quite low for a man, but my personal experience is that it's easier for me to lose fat with a rather low calorie intake and pure weight training, instead of more calories and additional cardio... i always choose a pretty low calorie intake for my competition diet. From time to time i will do a little refeed to speed up my metabolism. As long as my training is alright and i can lift the same weights as before, i guess i'm not losing muscle tissue...

Nice to hear that. It´s hard for me increase cardio and it seems I got the same situation: increase weight training and going low into calories is the best choice.
I am so happy to hear that.

Thanks fot the tip

All the best

concerning cardio: as i wrote at the beginning of my log, i'm gonna stick to strict low carb diet and pure weight training as long as possible... normally that works best for me. cardio will only be added if it should pe needed at the end of the diet, to get rid of the last bit of bodyfat...
