Cool man!

What’s your weight and bf% now?


(Chris - carnivoremuscle.com) #243

177lbs as of this morning but I haven’t had a BM in 30 hours or so. I would guess 15-17%. Might get an inbody scan first thing in the morning and compare to my last one, though I’ve lost and gained since that test was done, lol.

Right now I’m just eating and lifting and not worrying too much. Cals are 4000 to 4800 or so, 200 pro, at least 400+ fat.

Some updates. Changing up routine again. Lower volume but matched intensity. 5 days of lifting.


(Chris - carnivoremuscle.com) #245

I’m dropping this wack routine. I’ve learned (finally) that if I don’t tailor the volume and rest to my own body, I’m screwed.

Similar layout, different days, more volume, better results next week.

And a lat spread for you.


(Karim Wassef) #248

Looks like a decent leg day. How long did it take?

How do you take that back pic? Or did you get some help?


(Chris - carnivoremuscle.com) #249

I think it was about an hour. I ditched this program after a week though and tweaked it to fit my volume and recovery needs.

The mirror in the tanning room has a frame that just balances a phone, and I used the timer.


(Chris - carnivoremuscle.com) #250

Side note: I’m ending my honey experiment as of today. Despite Tommy DeLauer’s cycling study stating that 15g each of fructose and glucose with sodium would improve performance and not lead to fat gain, it did the opposite.

I’ve definitely muffin-topped this month and my energy levels were not increased at all.

(waist is still sub-29" though)


(Karim Wassef) #251

How long were you in it?


(Chris - carnivoremuscle.com) #252

I can’t remember but it was 3 or 4 full weeks of using it before the gym every weekday.


(Chris - carnivoremuscle.com) #253

Happy Anniversary to me!

Have some selfies.

New wheel shot from this morning…

Vacation training pic from last Friday’s A2 session: chest, shoulders, triceps, back width, back thickness.


(Chris - carnivoremuscle.com) #256

I’ve managed to put on some additional bodyfat in the past 5 months that doesn’t please me, and I’m fatigued with counting calories at the moment. The plan right now is ADF on certain days. On Monday, Wednesday, Friday, I eat multiple meals and feast HARD. Final meal ends no later than 7:30 pm. I fast all day Tuesday and Thursday, totalling approximately 36 hours. Saturday and Sunday are up in the air. May fast, may eat.


(Doug) #257

An excellent journey, Chris. :+1:


(Chris - carnivoremuscle.com) #258

The fasting wasn’t working out as good for training as I’d hoped. It’s just not the same as it used to be. So starting today we’re back on cutting levels of calories with lifting and cardio 5 days a week, and whatever I can for activity on the weekends. There is usually grocery shopping and other errands as well as a lot of housework that takes place those days.

Training split is Upper/Lower/Push/Pull/Legs


(Susan) #259

You have done really well, great progress, I just noticed your thread today. Best wishes on the rest of your journey.


(Ilana Rose) #260

Hey @Dread1840, what’s your fat:protein ratio these days and how’s it working for you?
