Start >> Week 5 (beginning of last week)
Way over do guys sorry I suck
Week 1-4 macros: 1700 cals, 170C, 170P, 38F
Week 5 & 6 macros: low carb- 1500, 100C, 160P, 55F
high carb- 1800 cals, 180C, 160P, 38F. Alternating every other day high/low with two low in a row on Sunday & Monday.
As far as my lifting cardio routine goes, I changed everything completely at week 5 & am trying something I’ve never really done before.
Im lifting 5 days a week instead of 6 & staying heavy for the most part. The 6th day is for just abs & cardio (I don’t consider this lifting). I’m incorporating an arm day which I’ve never done & conventional deadlift day hitting both back & glutes. I’m doing fasted cardio twice a week as well as yoga. Also trying to sleep more butttttt… key word trying.
Can I telll a difference? Yes.
Clearly there are no drastic changes here. & for most people there won’t be in only 5 weeks. I’m not starving myself or crash dieting bc those methods don’t give you results that last. What I’m doing is sustainable and will be easy to maintain.
But overall my tummy is tighter & I think my waist is shrunk down a bit. I had to weigh myself in class the other day & was at 160, but have no idea what I was when I started. I am gonna guess roughly 165, maybe closer to 168 around Christmas.
I can say what I am doing now is hard. It takes a lot of energy & will power some days with my schedule. My plan was to keep my gym time about the same & make my lifts shorter to makeup for the extra cardio im doing, but I haven’t been doing that. So I’ve been spending a loootta time at the gym which is not necessary.
For this week I’m just gonna keep doing low/high & try to be 100% then may have a free meal next weekend bc diet feels are hitting me hard. Then after that I may switch up my macros a bit. Idk we’ll see 🤗
