Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread
I used to be completely obsessed with all this shit and would drink 3 protein shakes a day, 5 full meals every few hours. I was putting on mass so I didn't have to worry about cardio as much. But it got to the point where I would be forcing myself to eat to keep that mass. And it worked out great, I floated between 200-205 but it was so hard to maintain. I can't force feed myself. So I changed it up and went with lighter weights with higher reps and converted it to lean muscle over time. I weighed myself yesterday, I was 185. Much easier. Lucky you that you can just do what you do and get the results you want.
Plus, with rolling BJJ you get a ton of cardio from that and I actually had my first muay thai session the other day so I plan on using that for cardio too. Just a word of advice: Leg kicks fucking hurt. A lot. Avoid them at all costs. I got dropped 3 times by them. I also have a tiny hole in my shin from kicking shit, you have to build up like a callous on your bones over time to make it so you don't hurt yourself while kicking.
