Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Ketogenic diets, in my experience & personal opinion, are best used in cycles. I always carb-cycle, but that's a different method altogether. Whereas I manipulate, reduce, and increase my carbs on a day-to-basis now, with a keto diet, you're dealing with a bigger picture & a longer timeframe.

They can be extremely beneficial, especially for people who are holding a lot of excess water weight. However, if you stick with a keto diet for a great length of time, you also run the risk of giving up some serious amounts of muscle mass in the process. Personally, I dealt with that. Just make sure you don't restrict yourself too much, in regards to your carb intake.

Also, as Kamikaze noted, it's good for you to plan a cheat meal about once a week. Don't go overboard with it, but eat enough to satisfy any nagging cravings. It's also beneficial for your metabolism.

Some keto diets suggest eating a lot of fats, which I'm against. Healthy fats? Sure. But some have recommended that you take in (a lot of) fats to offset the amount of carbs you're giving up, in some sort of unhealthy balancing act.

Again, I know the keto diet works. It's good, especially for people that have hit a plateau with their bodyfat, etc. So, if it's giving you results, then that's great. But, as long as you're improving in the gym & busting your ass to force those numbers on the plates to go up, then there's no reason why a simple carb-cycling routine wouldn't bring you the same (or, in my case, even better) results.

carb cycing is like where you have 3 low carb days and `1 high carb day right? i know it suppose help you get ripped by lowering body fat %, i'am thinking of doing that down the road some time after i gain some muscle first though.

I am missing so many things right now like; pizza, pasta, chips, BBQ sauce and so on. It's hell but for the results it's so worth it.
Really? I never knew that. I've been going on a low carb diet for 2 months, and I've had like 5 or 6 real cheat meals. I've also had a few cheat snacks (kitkats, galaxy bar, etc.) I thought one cheat meal would ruin a week's work, but I guess not. I lost 35 pounds already and I seemed to gain a pound on the scale the next day when I would weigh myself . Thanks for the info. Although I don't think pizza and chips are the best idea for a cheat meal...

I personally feel more energized when I'm cycling my carb intake. I don't really buy into the whole "carb sensitive" idea, but I usually feel sluggish after any meal containing a significant amount of carbs. Even breakfast.

I really fucked myself over when I origianlly tried to cut with the ketogenic diet, and I went overboard. I was very restrictive, and it ended up costing me a significant amount of hard-earned muscle mass I had achieved over the previous winter.

Then, when I bulked again, I felt too heavy & bloated. It's been a see-saw ever since, until I've settled pretty nicely into my current carb-cycling routine.

Meh, I like it. And it works for me.

It's not going to give me what a full-on bulking diet would, but it maintains and keeps me fired up in the gym.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

I just gained almost 25 lbs on my close grip bench in 4 days and i have no explanation! Just last Wednesday i got 220 for 8,...today i got 245 for 7. Just straight up obliterated my previous PR. Through my experience i usually drop a rep for every 5lbs or so that i add so my goal was 3 and i wouldve been happy! I only had 1 workout in between and that was basically a hodgepodge that featured snatch grip deadlifting, some preacher curling, and some external dumbbell rotations. It had to be the rotations?! Cause it was nothing supplement related and ive never had a gain like this before.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Just started my long term work out plan today. All of it from the Snap Fitness website. It's really good. Even though my town's location is missing a few of the equipment, I can find suitable substitutes.

So does anyone else here work out at Snap Fitness and/or use their work out planner?

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Ok I'm kind of new to working out. Basically I have a bit of a flabby stomach. Its nothing serious, but I wanna get it toned up. Not necessarily like a six-pack, but something better looking. What are the best things to do?

I hear running is the best strategy. Gonna order a treadmill in 2-3 weeks. I'm eating fatty food less, but don't really wanna go on a diet, since like I said my stomach is not a big issue. I'm currently doing 50 situps, 20 pushups, 10 ab crunches each day. I don't know what its really doing, but I hope its working for something. What altercations should I make to my daily routine?

All of those sit ups and crunches will make your core tight but you won't see it because of all the fat so you need to diet. And nothing even drastic. Even simple things like switching from one pizza to another with less calories and fat.

This website has proved quite useful for me.
