Rob's High Intensity Training Log


Recommended Posts

Hey Mike, for me I find in fairly easy, gaining mass I go with higher carbs and 5-6 feeds a day, leaning out high fat / low carb with refeeds. I stick with Dr Dardens recommendation on protein of 0.5 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight, that may seem pretty low, but I honestly dont believe we need a lot of protein.

 

Totally agree!! When leaning out I go super high on fats and low on carbs but not quite keto. I don't know how people can do that aha you tried it?

Couldnt go keto mate, I still not about 100-150g of carbs daily, mostly around the workouts. Forgot to mention, the only time I have issues with my diet is when im switching from a high carb diet to a high fat diet, takes a week or so for the brain fog to clear, plus am peeing 15-20 times a day given that the water in leaving the muscles.

Hey Mike, thanks mate, I had one of the worst days of my life yesterday, had to have my wee cat put to sleep yesterday, she was 18 and had kidney failure, absolutely heart broken. But she had a great life and was treated like a queen, lots of great memories of her. I'll probably take some time away from the gym until my mindset returns.

Hope you have a great Easter too:)

Best Rob

I just want to take the opportunity to thank everyone and wish all here the very best of luck for the future.

Not sure if youll read this Rob you may have already left, but sorry your leaving you have been a huge inspiration to me over the past couple of years and ive enjoyed our talks and exchanging of ideas alot. Ive never 'met' anyone with so much knowledge and passion for common sense weight training before and you put in such a way that even i can understand easily. All the best with your future training and thanks for all the help you have given me. The forum wont be the same without big Rob!
