Re: Deficit and then what?
Thanks for the reply, it’s appreciated.
I’m 41 so I should be happy at being able to get this lean but would like to see how far I can take it!
My training has gone from a push/pull split obsessing over numbers to a hypertrophic style concentrating on form and reps. Strength has dipped, but I’m not concerned about this as much as I used to be. The biggest hit has been strict pressing, my fat pb was 130 and now 100 is hit and miss. I can still, on a good day, shoulder press 62 dumbells.
I think due to being below 2k calories a day for a long period has lead to some metabolic adaptation which a weekly refeed isn’t enough to effect it.
I think I will have a diet break for a couple of weeks and go to 2400 calories (200p/70f and rest carbs sound right?) I’ll drop it 100 cals a week (.of carbs)and see what happens. I’ll time carbs around training so should I reduce carbs on non training days? Should I also stop fasting during the diet break?
I think ultimately reversing out of the diet makes sense, otherwise I would probably lose discipline and overeat ****.
