Dread's Carnivore Muscle Thread

I posted a thread on brain in the recipes forum a few weeks back

Killer workout today.


(Chris - carnivoremuscle.com) #223

Love Mondays! Why? Because the gym opens an hour later than I arrive and I have to be as efficient as possible!

Day 2 of the raw local honey experiment. Going well. I’m not finding that the two tablespoons are affecting my cravings at all. Post-workout I’m looking for meat and fat.

Anyway, the energy gains are seemingly good. Unsure if it’s placebo but I definitely have more steam in me.


(Karim Wassef) #226

Can you see it in your training volume (reps x weight?) or other metric?


(Chris - carnivoremuscle.com) #227

Going by feeling right now. I’ve got a lot more left in the tank when I walk out compared to the last 6 weeks or so. I’m naturally a high volume guy and the current program I’d consider “medium” for me. So, hard to say. :smiley:

Link to program @Karim_Wassef in case you were wondering. People tell me it’s a ton of volume and I’m just like, you haven’t seen shit lol.

Still liking the raw honey. I’m feeling like it’s settling my stomach before walking in somehow? Kinda weird.

Can you measure a difference ?


(Chris - carnivoremuscle.com) #238

How do you want me to do that?


(Karim Wassef) #239

No idea…

increasing training volume vs. previous progress without honey?

Increase in single rep max weight based on rested rep x weight ? There’s a formula for that somewhere.

Duration of lifting sessions before exhaustion?

Just trying to measure if it’s better & then how much better?
