So. Hi there, first time in the exercise forum.
I am low carb for the last 5 or 6 years, solid 3 years keto.
I do intermittent fasting and extended fasting in between things. I am highly insulin resistant and therefore have a hard time loosing weight, which is why I love a lot of exercise to get my estrogen/testosterone levels more balanced (not sure if that plays too much of a role for this issue)
I used to have a lot of calve cramps but I figured the magnesium part out, mostly.
My exercise routine:
Monday: zumba (with an tough instructor) followed by body pump every second Monday.
Tuesday: Functional Toning
Wednesday: rest, walking
Thursday: body combat
Friday: body pump (in case I am still able to move
NOW MY ISSUE:
I have loads of energy to do all those things, but my legs struggle to go up stairs, to jump, that stuff. They don’t hurt or anything, it just feels like deflating a balloon if that makes sense… At the same time squats are a piece of keto cake…
Anyone an idea how that could possibly be mended?
