Weekly weight in- 99.7kg, grand loss of 0.2kg in 7 days. That’s 2k calories a day, low carb, 3 x fasted hiit and 3 x resistance training.
After the initial disappointment I rationalised that I don’t actually have that much BF left to lose, there has been a degree of muscle gain and it’s still a loss!

So refeed was about 6k cals with 700 ish from mainly complex carbs (aside from large dominos)

Need to mentally get over being rubbish at pressing at minute- rapid (ish) weight loss and low cals/carbs do not make for pressing fun.

Pressing is still pretty strong mate! Are you just trying to maintain that strength as you drop weight then? Maybe more volume at the upper end of weight?

I would love to maintain strength as I lose weight but think I need to appreciate that it’s going to drop, get over it and then hopefully it’ll go up again as I gain weight in a cleaner fashion.
It’s odd in so much there is only about 20kg between what I can rep for double figures to what I can only double. Perhaps it’s just lack of practice!

I think lots of ibuprofen and heat/cold and hopefully I’ll be fixed a little in a week

I am guilty of the same thing mate. Only just started doing regular deloads in the last year.
 
Having said that I am overdue one myself but currently on a cycle so will postpone.

The problem for me is I just love training! If I could spare the time to do 4hrs a day, 7 days a week I would jump at it. I’m already twitching and wondering how I’m going to get through the week and it’s only been a day. But going to persevere and relax this week and also eat around maintenance.

Really need to come up with a plan next year what I’m aiming for. When I was doing strongman it was easy - competition on this date and weights to be lifted etc.
I don’t think I would ever do a bodybuilding show, but I do think with a water cut I would be in a reasonable ‘stage ready’ condition.
Hopefully after crimbo is out of the way I’ll get a clue what to do!

5 days into a week of rest. Not gone mad with eating but have been having a lot more carbs than normal. I’ve somehow put on 5kg in this time and feel so bloated. 5kgs in 5 days seems an inordinate amount of water to clap on?

5 is a lot. But then we are assuming you weren't dehydrated when you took your first reading, or didn't need a crap, too much salt etc. etc.
 
You will know if you've eaten enough to put on 5kg! See what it says next week and don't sweat too much.

I normally take readings at the same time every day (straight after waking and having a wee). The last two days I’ve been very low carb and drinking lots of water and was 100.7kg this morning.
I wonder if I’m developed some type of carb sensitivity as I really didn’t eat that much! (Under 200g carb- maybe 400 for two of the five days)
It had also told me that I don’t fancy bulking again as the bloat from the water retention made me feel ****e.

Back in the gym this afternoon after a whole week off, and can’t wait!

Another aimless session, really need to have something to focus on or at least an idea of what I’m doing it all for.

Anyway;

Seated rows to warm up

15” deads

60 x some
110 x 5
150 x 3
Add straps
180 x 5
210 x 5
240 x 3
180 x 5
200 x 5
180 x 5
This pretty much sums up my idiotic training at the minute, I only deadlifted three days ago and my lower back was still sore going into this. But I persisted in deadlifting as it doesn’t aggravate my arm/shoulder.

Chest supported rows
Pull downs
Straight arm pull downs

Loads of abs and core (because can’t think of owt else to do)

Five mins warming up in gym and then call from nursery to come and collect my little lad who had fallen over and bumped his lip.

Few ab circuits at home, the joys of parenthood!
