    Yeah, I noticed my fasted cardio hurts more when I wake up in the morning. And I can go longer post workout.... I think I may have some left over glycogen


    Hey Sean,

    I did an arm routine you posted a couple pages back. I didn't know what 1:1:1 meant.... Can you explain?

    Fasted cardio seems to be a big controversial subject.

    I hate starting an argument, so please just take this as my input.

    When I did my first cut, I did fasted cardio about 3 times a week while in a caloric deficit. All was good, I saw almost all my fat gone after about 4 months. Thus, I was a big believer in fasted cardio.
    Then, I went on a bulk, gained some fat.

    I got into some discussions with different bodybuilders, eventually the topic of cutting came up. I asked about their take on fasted cardio. They laid it out pretty simply to me:
    If you were to take two generalized people, put one on a fasted cardio workout routine with caloric deficit, put the other on a workout routine ignoring when to do cardio (basically eat whenever, and do cardio whenever), they will end up losing close to the same amount of fat.

    So I mentioned that doing anything in a fast would make your body tap into its fat reserves for energy.
    They told me that the amount of fat used would not even matter, compared to the amount of fat you would burn off just being in a caloric deficit alone. It made sense. So I researched it. The science behind their claims seemed to back it all up.

    So I decided to experiment. I needed to go on a cut anyway to get ready for summer. But the science behind fasting is beneficial, if used correctly. Eventually, it lead me to IFing.

    Since November 28th, I have gone down from 215 to 190 as of today. Without cardio.

    The bottom line being that I don't see fasted cardio as very necessary. Going for a run whenever you want is fine. One of the main benefits of cardio is that it spikes your metabolism, which over an extended period of time, will burn off more fat.

    So last summer I was weighing 155 lbs. and could barely squat 135 about 8 times

    At this point I'm at 167 lbs and today I managed to squat 175 lbs for 10 reps :) did 5 sets. but on the 3rd set I only managed 8, rested a few seconds and pumped out the last two. Same for the last 2 sets.

    took a long unforgiving Christmas break that kind of set me back. Started incorporating more leg work outs on leg day.

    Most of the weight gain has been on my legs. My shorts and pants fit a little tighter in the thighs. :D

    Even a relative who I only see once every few months told me my legs look thicker. :D That compliment made my day. hahahha

    I've been increasing the weight very slowly on the squats, once a month I go up 10 lbs and use the entire month to get used to it, then I up it.

    Hoping to be squatting 200 by mid summer. But I probably won't have access to a squat rack as I use the one in school and I'll be taking this summer off. : /

    I'd be happy enough at 200 lbs. at 10 reps.

    How's everyone progressing so far?

    I'd say about 1 in every 50 ladies in the gyms around here comes remotely close to this. Maybe 1 in every 80-100.

    Marion, Alabama must be the place to visit then. At least for workouts? :spy:

    Girls at my gym are either highschool or college chicks, the really hot ones have the overly manly dad workout with them to keep dudes away, the fake tit attention whores are dimes a dozen, once a while you get a IFBB bikini model status, but most of them are above a 5 at least, but no fat bitches at my gym, I imagine too many in shape people that they feel weird there.
