Running is something to watch... it is the most recovery hindering form of cardio with regards to 'complementing' weight training goals that there is. Especially for a heavy dude


Yeh which is why I’m keeping it to short bursts.. you won’t see me doing any marathon running anytime soon.

And weight training goals seem to be falling to the wayside recently. Although I’m still training harder then ever, it’s more of tool now for continueing the transformation. Lose the weight and get functional and fit while keeping an above average level of muscle mass.. I’ve been thinking a lot about strength goals and I just don’t think I can chase them again without abusing the food. I know I could get fvcking stupidly strong if I didn’t care what it did to my body . Whether I’ll ever be able to get over that I don’t know. At least with having body composition and fitness goals, I’m forced to justify every bit of food which is good for me. I don’t want to get fat again, I want to lose the rest of the chub strength goals just don’t allow that for me right now.

Moving well here mate. That is a good milestone to hit with a min at 10 speed. Bang on keto again as well?


Cheers mate. No I’m having some carbs and cals have gone up 15%.

This is my eating plan for next 6 weeks (one cheat meal a week)

I’m doing a 2 on 1 off split.
I’m doing a 16 hour fast every day.

On rest days (day 3) it’s strict keto. I had 8 grams’of carbs yesterday. (Mainly steak, eggs, cheese, olives, nut butter, avos and cowbutter!). Only one meal on rest days so 24 hour fast.

Today (training day 1) I woke up and fasted till 3pm.

First meal : chicken salad on rye bread and pineapple.
Prewo : protein shake and banana, can of monster!
Pwo: 5 moam sweets and some peptopro
Dinner: steak mince and jasmine rice
Bed: Low carb PHD protein bar and pint of milk. Tomorrow’s
Will do this for 6 weeks then get back on the Strict keto

Training day 2 will be done fasted and then follow standard keto diet.

Keto days I’m in a deficit, high carb day I’m I surplus. Over a week I’m at maintenance.

So basically it’s a high carb day every 3 days but those carbs are timed bang in the middle of 2 weight workouts. Carbs will help recovery quicker from day 1 and tank will be full for day 2.

The plan is although I’m at maintenance, the extra output and macro timings/ calorie manipulation should keep in a fat burning state the majority of the time but I’ll be able to put some muscle on espeicially with the extra dose.

I know this type of manipulation works over an extended period (a few weeks) so will be interesting to see how it works over a shorter period (3 days) . As with everything I do, it’s a marvellous experiment!

Shizzle has def started minizzling. Princess Di never disappoints. Day 5 and feeling stronger and more powerful and weights and reps increased all round. Running felt excellent too. I could have done 15 intervals tonight but got chased out the gym at 10. It’s weird although my legs start out very heavy when I run on Leg day, it’s the day the treadmills feel the best. If I haven’t trained legs it just feels off.. weird.


Got 9 more planned workouts all ramping up before I go away for a week for my birthday so will use that as super-compensation/deload week. Although we’re going hiking so it won’t really be a relaxing week off! And I have kung fu Grading in 2 weeks so that training is also being ramped.. Until then, 2 on 1 off and smash it to pieces!

Wow, 6 minute mile would be cracking going.
When you say morning run, Is that the end goal for treadmill or road running?

Back when I was 17/18 I needed to be able to do 1.5 miles in 8 min 30 (as well as far longer runs) for a job role. I used to smash out the practice in a nice gym on a treadmill watching the tv and the hottie in front.
When it was time to do it in the 'real world ' it was a huge eye opener at how much harder it was.


You had run for a Job role? You weren’t delivering ballots to be counted in Newcastle or Sunderland were you haha!

End goal would be road/trail run. But that’s not going to happen anytime soon with my knee until I drop at least another 15-20kgs. It’s perfectly fine on a Treadmill , but yeh as you say, real world is a lot more challenging, both in difficulty and in impact. Soft grass would be next step and I want to see how a springy tartan track is. But for now Treadmill it is. Safer and more consistent for my rhino like gracefulness. Im no gazelle!

I've been alluding to the strength goals for a while mate, they're just not healthy for you, neither are the blasts. I think if you blast in the future you should just increase test.

Yeh. My blasts now days are like a third of what they were (dose and length). 6 weeks high test, low tren, with a 3 week low oral kicker to get the party started. I like tren and only doing 200 a week which is very low gives benefits without hardly any sides.

I’m noticing a much better response this way.

Strength goals, if I ever was to go down that route again, I think I’d have to try hypnosis.. something to break that connection between strength and food.

I remember when I was at the peak of my strength, I used to go Tesco’s for my preworkout meal of choice which was a whole tiger french stick, a whole rotisserie chicken with unlimited mayo and a litre of milk Probably 3000kcals. And it never touched the sides! Fvck sake

That's exactly why I don't do cardio!
(at least its what I tell myself!)
 
Some great work going on mate. Yeah the old saying was 'mass moves mass' but at the end of the day the little ants that are fooking strong lb for lb are more impressive I think.
 
Also did you say dbol? What dose and brand mate? How much more muscle building do you think dbol adds to test? I read it's supposed to be 2.5 times as anabolic?

You think ants are more impressive then say Grizzly Bears or Gorrilas?

One of my favourite sayings is “there are no weightclasses in the jungle!” Everyone should strive to be as big and strong as rhey can be as the biggest and strongest will always win every time! (I just need to do it with less fat!) .. and on this subject .. people who shout body weight PB’s! Your maxes will always be your maxes, whatever you weigh, that is the ceiling you should be aiming for at whatever weight you find yourself. You could in theory get a Bodyweight PB everyday lol.

Brett

Sis. 20mg. Only a small dose . I have run it at 50 before. But I’m a lot more cautious these days.

Dbol stacks muscle on and fast. And with the test running with and after, you can really allow that muscle to settle on your body. You don’t lose half as much as if you were running dbol solo. I think all blasts should have a little 2-3 week oral kicker. You’re going deep anyway .. you may as well go balls deep!

Very lethargic and tight lower back this morning. Hamstrings are also Doms central Early start this morning went into work.. I’ve done about 20 hours extra overtime at work each weeks for the the last 2 weeks and I can really feel the difference from the extra sitting around! Probably a combination of this, the higher volume and blast but body is not feeling as limber as I have been!

Good weights session ..

today is a the first time I’ve ran a mile on the treadmill ! 6 x 1min intervals at 10mph!
Now I just need to get rid of those 1min rests to get my goal of constant 6min mile.

To the runners? What would be the best way to approach this? More intervals to build fitness? Slowly decrease rest periods?

There always has and there always will be the debate on what's more impressive. Overall max lifts or lifts in comparison to body weight.

The general consensus is that it's spilt down the middle. 'Larger' guys will claim overall strength is superior and more 'in shape' guys will make claims like 'do you want to be the strongest guy in the gym or look like the strongest guy in the gym'.

If the larger guys are happy within themselves and can show their dominance in the gym for 5 hours a week then that's great for them. The guys that look impressive can obviously strut their stuff for every other hour of the week.

We are generally vain as a species and although self fulfilment is a more important to some, most seek others peoples approval or attention.
I will always say if you think of the zenith of both then Mr Universe will get much more attention stood next to the World's Strongest man. Obviously that depends on the makeup of the audience but in general that would ring true.

Personally I've been far stronger in the past than I am now however this week I have

- ran 10 miles including a 5k in low 20 minutes

-cycled 34 miles yesterday

-swam 2000m

- bench pressed body weight in sets of 10 reps

- done a set of 17 strict pull-ups

- dipped for sets of 12 with an extra 35kg hanging off my waist

- squatted body weight for 20 reps

I can only speak for myself but at almost 37 I am far happy with that than any other week from my last 10 years of training.




As for running, I'm not sure I'm qualified to comment as I'm a crap runner but it depends how often you are running. If 3 times a week then increase the run part by 5 seconds and decrease the rest part by 5 seconds each session. If running once or twice a week then you could get away by doing the same but with 10 seconds each time.

My body copes incredibly well with running. It doesn't hinder recovery in the slightest, even running off trail in the hills. Blowing my own trumpt here, but there's not many folk as big as me that could match my endurance.
 
IMO You need to be building your endurance first and then slowly ramp up the speed. C25K is worthy of a look. I did the 5K after week 4, so as long as you're consistent you'll do well.

When I was a runner I ran 10k races and would run most 5 times a week ad lift weights 4/5 times a week. Phycially I could handle it but was at a standstill between gaining strength and size. Just got leaner tbh. But on the flipside I was a gym bro rat who hated leg day and squats and was all about upper body so my experience wasn't the best.
 
There will be a good compromise between the 2 but I think its a slow build on them both.

Make me stronger!

Not true. Nature has come up with many ways to ensure that smaller/weaker species survive. Poison for example, or spines, or even flight! When we are talking an even playing field strength and power will win for sure, but on the same even ground if the ant was the size of the bear then the mighty ant would surely win!
 
Ever had any estrogen issues when using dbol and test in combo? Both aromatise particularly dbol. I would be keen to run dbol on my first test cycle as you say if I'm going to do it might as well do it properly. Don't want to go through the test cycle for mediocre gains.

(I just need to do it with less fat!) .. and on this subject .. people who shout body weight PB’s! Your maxes will always be your maxes, whatever you weigh, that is the ceiling you should be aiming for at whatever weight you find yourself. You could in theory get a Bodyweight PB everyday lol.

Also did you say dbol? What dose and brand mate? How much more muscle building do you think dbol adds to test? I read it's supposed to be 2.5 times as anabolic?


Sis. 20mg. Only a small dose . I have run it at 50 before. But I’m a lot more cautious these days.

Dbol stacks muscle on and fast. And with the test running with and after, you can really allow that muscle to settle on your body. You don’t lose half as much as if you were running dbol solo. I think all blasts should have a little 2-3 week oral kicker. You’re going deep anyway .. you may as well go balls deep!



Not true. Nature has come up with many ways to ensure that smaller/weaker species survive. Poison for example, or spines, or even flight! When we are talking an even playing field strength and power will win for sure, but on the same even ground if the ant was the size of the bear then the mighty ant would surely win!
 
Ever had any estrogen issues when using dbol and test in combo? Both aromatise particularly dbol. I would be keen to run dbol on my first test cycle as you say if I'm going to do it might as well do it properly. Don't want to go through the test cycle for mediocre gains.




Am I the only one thinking about ants on Dbol now?
