I don't know if it's the "best," but look into 5x5 routines.

do you have really dry skin? you staying hydrated? you putting on size really quickly? you taking vitamins? you drink a lot of alcohol? you tan? all of these things attribute to them.

No, I do not have really dry skin. I drink PLENTY of water (that's literally the only thing I drink all day everyday). I'm sure I'm getting my vitamins. I do not drink alcohol (haven't drank since like 2 1/2 years ago). I do not tan. And I think the putting on size quickly may be the answer, my muscles are getting much bigger than I expected in the amount of time I started working out again. You think it could be due to genetics?

used the IF diet, new supps, juicing and created my own diet... I have never seen such great results in my 10+ years of serious lifting/exercise

5:00AM - CRAZE PREWORKOUT
5:30AM - WORKOUT (BCAA WHILE LIFTING)
7:00AM - LOW CARB/SUGAR PROTEIN/MICRONIZED CREATINE
9:00AM - BCAA
11:00AM - JUICE (ORGANIC VEGGIES/FRUITS)
11:30AM - LIGHT LUNCH (LEAN PROTEIN/COMPLEX CARBS) FISH OIL/VITAMIN D/CALCIUM/LIVER CLEANSE PILLS
3:00PM - JUICE (ORGANIC VEGGIES/FRUITS)
5:00PM - DINNER (TRY TO KEEP IT CLEAN - FISH/VEGGIES ETC - BUT WILL CHEAT SOMETIMES AND EAT WHATEVER)

I first cut down weight, lost tons of fat, but now put my weight back up and kept my fat to the minimum... even my friends can't believe the transformation they have seen in the last two months smokin.gif

PM if you want the specifics of what I am taking/doing because it works for me, might for you nthat.gif

yes it definitely can be, so many skin issues, keloids..stretch marks..wrinkles, can be attributed to genetics. The elastin gene for example, is known to affect the integrity of the skin if it has defects.

I wonder if this is the case for my boy. He lost a bunch of weight pretty fast and has excess skin. Maybe he can't get rid of it cause of genetics?

 

I have a good size scar in the middle of my stomach from surgery. I wonder if i lose too much weight if it will get flabby or tone out.

What do you guys think about the "cheat day"? Do you think its necessary or it will just take you a huge step back from your goals?
post #8176 of 41486
^ give it up bro. It's a crutch. if you want a small snack here and there, do it, but it's silly to dedicate a whole day to being careless. You gotta have that discipline to refrain from what you want now to achieve what you want most.

Cheat day is important more for your overall morale & mental health. Eating like a rabbit 6 days a week is enough. Have a cheat day & enjoy it & no your not taking a huge step back...you may even take a step forward.

post #8178 of 41486
A whole cheat day is probably a slippery slope. Cheat meals where you kinda adjust the rest of the day around it is much better for progress. At the same time, some people need to gradually adjust to the lifestyle change. When you tell someone any cheat meal is terrible or a cheat day is a going to kill your routine - it could be really discouraging. People are wired differently.
post #8179 of 41486
If I have to "cheat" ill have a cheat meal and that's it. No sense eating like crap all day....first day of IF is done and it wasn't too bad! Didn't really even feel all that hungry.

A cheat day is a WHOLE day of eating bad/cheat meals. A cheat meal is just one meal then you eat healthy for the rest of the day.

Cheat days/meals aren't about being careless. It's about eating more than you normally would. A cheat meal doesn't need to be McDonald's. It could be 8oz of salmon, 6oz of filet, a baked potato, and a cup of veggies in olive oil. That's 1000+ calories, and hopefully a lot more than what you normally eat for dinner.

With that being said. Cheat meals spread through the week? or a cheat day?

I already know that having no cheat meal or just 1 cheat meal for 1 day are way way better. Just want to know whats better between the 2 choices.

Ah, well I guess I've been doing it "wrong" the whole time then. But my one day where I can have a cheat meal is what keeps me sane, so i'll stick with it.

Im kind of new to this so I need so help/tips with my goals.

I'm 5'11, 189 lbs.

I've already done some internet research and am working out 6 days a week.

 

What exercises/routines/workouts do you all recommend?

What kind of diet should I maintain?

I bought protein powder for after work out.

What else should I be do/be doing?

post #8186 of 41486
My cheat days are just days where I still eat at maintenance. It's not hard to adjust my day to fit in a cheat meal. I usually don't feel like I need them though.
Felt sorry for my maid, I gave that girl a raise. She said you got too many Js, I'd be cleaning for days.

So hit crossfit for the first time over the weekend, heres what I did and my thoughts:
Saturday- 930am session at Crossfit LoDo in Denver, CO
15 min AMRAP
200m run
8 hand release pushups
8 burpees
8 pullups

Overall it was a good workout. I was 8 pull ups short of getting 5 rounds in but knocked them out anyways after the timer went off. You really get tired during these workouts. Given the altitude and copious amount of drinks I had the night before I thought I did pretty well. Girl that brought me did 5.5 rounds but she was proud that I held my own laugh.gif

I'm in pretty good shape right so there was a group of 3-4 people who wanted to get some more in after and I was down. so then we did:
5 rounds
4 deadlifts +4 bar burpees
3 power cleans + 3 bar burpees
2 Clean > front squats + 2bar burpees
1 Clean and jerk + bar burpee

I had 135 on the bar and I could only do 3 rounds at that point. laugh.gif **** had me gassed and I wasn't trying to hurt myself doing those Olympic lifts while I was that beat.

Went back again on Sunday morning and my girl made up a WOD on the fly that has me feeling the effects today

400 air squats
Run 400m
300 sit ups
Run 400m
200 double unders
Run 400m
100 pushups
Run 400m
50 pullups
Run 400m
25 hand stand push ups.
Run 400m

**** was brutal. Those air squats then run are sick.gif . It took me a little over an hour.

Overall I really liked it. Great change of pace from my reg 4 day split lifting routine. Aside from the lifting, its a great avenue to channel that competitive fire you have from playing sports and build some camaraderie with the people at the gym. After I'm done traveling and working a **** load for work I might look into joining in April. I think if I were to go for a year consistently I'd literally be a beast. At the same time I think you can incorporate this into any lifting routine, its just harder to push yourself to that 'redline' solo instead of lifting in a group.

Haven't been that tired after a workout since my college football summer workouts in 2009.

Never felt so sore but jacked at the same time though. smokin.gif

Also about to see what that strict paleo life is all about. Kind of already eat a paleo diet but could cut some things out to make it the real deal .

Man i can't even do a cheat meal without my stomach hurting. Been eating clean for a few months and now a Mcdonalds cheeseburger be giving me problems. If i cheat, it's because i am eating an all beef burger with bread and some potato wedges.

I havent had a cheat meal in a long time, im fine with eating clean
