rkcvyuawad2d
Currently down about 1.5kgs (whoop)
snxefxoges2d
General strategy is, no food before 6pm and doing HIIT / Calisthenics in my bedroom 4-5 times a week
hhihjjjlmk2d
in principle itโ€™s also no alcohol - but Iโ€™m not sticking to that very well
wtsumtem2d
I feel like I put on 3kg in the last 1 month.. snuck up on me, I wasnโ€™t paying attention until my shirts got tight
hwpljwsbnbgfkqd2d
My strategy half my portions and make up the extra calories with olive oil
hpddslddtgywuzy2d
Halve, even
ffrkeqshvuasqke2d
Keeping me in ketosis
eohmpcixzzvod2d
I'm hearing eat the same portions and also more olive oil
knafchexerpcy2d
I'm all for it
alrbvrcs2d
did anyone say eat the same portions and drink a glass of olive oil with cup of bulletproof coffee?
umudpsxuxbf2d
Good article, thanks for sharing!
rjswurskxgvbl2d
Someone get this man a stick of butter!
abgntkkdax2d
Definitely been boredom eating here. Did a two month cut just before my gym closed and all the kiloโ€™s are back in just 3 weeks.
dndinmtr2d
I suggest you all get scales and weight yourself every morning. The perspective it will give you would make you do needed adjustments way more diligently :)
gnjidwob2d
And dont buy food you should not eat
azrsngemdt2d
Been weighing daily for years now, the last 6 months on a scale with a body fat meter too ๐Ÿ˜› definitely helpful! I can fluctuate 1-1.5kg on a daily basis easily
fkjnisgg2d
Now, I think I havent double checked but one of my personal trainers from the past would say the body fat measures trough skin would change depending on how much water your body holds that day as it used impedance/resistance (pardon my french here) so more water more resistance? Can you anyhow confirm you have noticed that? I havent adjusted all those on my scales yet, been lazy.
scrsmfolpp2d
Body fat measurements are really unreliable, it definitely fluctuates a lot depending on how much water my body holds at that moment yes.
kcsedgoyly2d
For long term trends I have definitely found my scale useful, I wouldnโ€™t trust the exact number though. But when I did a 2 month cut and my average dropped ~3% on the scale I could definitely see a huge difference in the mirror too
nrohbmeb2d
Calipers vs scales gave me almost 30% difference in body fat % being higher on the scales when I did both back in the day
ukrjbvyz2d
The calipers guy was really good, I dont even question that part
aywubwpy2d
So what does it do - shows more or less fat when more water in body?
wfzgaodgpw2d
More water = lower percentage for me
zbhkaqvsop2d
When Iโ€™m really dehydrated my scale gives a higher body fat percentage.
hucbevstyk2d
I just googled, seems to confirm what I just said โ€œThe problem is that hydration plays a major role in this reading. A person who is not adequately hydrated may show a higher body fat percentage than is actually accurate, and a person who is overly hydrated might get a number too low.โ€ (source www.revolutionptwl.com/about/blog/53/How-Body-Fat-Percentage-Can-Trick-You)
nitlmvccxs2d
But yeah thatโ€™s why I like to measure daily, I care more about the trend than the actual number on a day itself
asbwdwxnhlfyg2d
You shouldn't weigh yourself daily, you'll go mad over inconsequential fluxuations. Weight should be measured weekly at most imho
jdsttzulxmsqw2d
Scales for cooking and calorie tracking however, very useful
akgymyap2d
And when you do weigh yourself it should be at the same time of day, like right when you wake up or right when you get out of the shower or something.
eylvmxhiscqck2d
Not before and after each :hankey:?
jnrvikso2d
That too
hatghhpks2d
I would say better do it daily than weekly, that way you would know "OK so it can fluctuate between X and Y" while I think if you do it weekly you might be sad about gained weight because you did it on the wrong day ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ
ifcbddnn2d
Iโ€™m going to have to buy a new pair of scales soon. I think my current one has suffered from my treating it like travel scales when they really prefer to not be banged around in a suitcase. They were cheap so no biggie. Are there lightweight ones that arenโ€™t expensive and automatically store the data somewhere?
jgnjniwnjfd2d
Weight yourself daily will plausibly give you anxiety over it
neakwelstxc2d
I know I've gained weight in the last few weeks because I can feel the difference in my fatty bits
mzxnomajido2d
I'm not fond of this :(
vonzzpkxqplotso2d
My scales are my pants. If they're feeling tight, time to lay off the beer.
ouyjncaqktz2d
The problem is I don't wear pants ๐Ÿ˜‚
gtfghffuw2d
ffzpapufdyuy Underwear could probably have the same use for measuring
rqhuruoscsg2d
Nah, underwear is meant to be stretchy
kxwixjafgpq2d
If my underwear gets too tight I'm very far beyond "have gained weight"
prebpyepl2d
Maybe get into some BDSM gear or something, I think they are supposed to restrict, also neighbors will have a much better time looking through windows ๐Ÿ˜„
opyptohx2d
a belly chain might be easiest
pjpjcgzf2d
but then you might end up with a set of different sizes after awhile.. could be annoying
objzdnoc2d
unless you can find one that's easily adjustable
ibftlubfoj2d
Yeah the trending is what matters. Scale BF% arenโ€™t accurate and neither are calipers. But if used consistently they can both produce a trend of up or down which is what matters.
llbnyduj2d
Calipers not accurate too?
byhlxpnr2d
Oh wait, fat under skin and fat between organs, makes sense...
idimgvldcq2d
And people hold weight differently
cetefvxzzq2d
Some more belly fat, others in their lower body, etc.
werovcxllsrgqap2d
I surprisingly distribute fat pretty evenly
zarqfhrqtxfypxa2d
Which is a blessing and a curse?
grhfplq2d
i did ragbrai one year and someone in my small group had a bike cage flask mount
pkvfkai2d
fully approve of such usages of bottle cages ๐Ÿ˜›
xzdisyt2d
got more morning in ๐Ÿ˜„ www.strava.com/activities/3263090218
agjvrwb2d
ybpezerwmzt yeah; don't know if its anterior or posterior; I don't really sit in chairs as much as I slouch on a couch; either way hip flexors are tight; and I have troubbel touching my toes and need more ab work, and quad stretches
qwbhowoceb2d
most people are anterior
luitlpxyianhwqf1d
I've always wanted to do ragbrai. I lived for 2 years in Iowa City and I remember it was just a straight party. Did you do a part or go across the whole state? uiumiutu
pnilfyv1d
whole state
pxipxmq1d
did it with a small group and we had our own van/support driver (the mom of a two riders in our group)
xbofebu1d
super fun, would jump at the chance to do it in a similar group again
wyhxksfxhudhurz1d
how long did it take?
vwciknl1d
was just really great not having to deal with the big gear bus or having to figure out where to camp (the person driving the van would pick up food and then claim space for all our tents before we arrived)
ybcmrlflzjyjzvc1d
The time would be my problem. I'd like to but don't know if I have a week to ride even though I would
qgnbmaa1d
it's like 7 days or something?
mbqqxuc1d
yeah, that's the tough part, 6-7 days of riding, then logistics of getting to/from
tcmdkzgfggnnfux1d
You ride road bikes mostly?
spckwnr1d
for ragbrai it was like everything imaginable haha
bllkggt1d
but i was on my road bike
mnptggfrgcughax1d
gotcha. I prefer a hybrid just because I'm a child and like to jump off shit like sidewalks, grass, etc
tirjaqdctziokan1d
I borrowed my friends carbon frame road bike for a race once and I can put some miles behind me with that. I have to work a bit harder on my hybrid
knnnbzg7h
nxbwrluhjzestkoc a hybrid would be great for it, honestly you have all day and there's no pressure to ride fast. comfort is priority, unless you've had the misfortune of going with people who want to ride faster. there was a bit of gravel/dirt (connecting roads/parks) and with the ability to ride over curbs or some grass coming in and out of camps/towns it's handy.. i did all of that on my road bike but i saw some less comfortable cyclists having trouble in a few bits.
sktpyrazjsycnez5h
Yeah I saw a guy dressed as a banana doing it once. It seemed like something that you can take it as serious as you want. Looked more like a party but I'd imagine some people are a bit more "hard core" about it.
tvnwzle4h
exactly
feqoiolhsorjb2h
In fitness news, Iโ€™m down to 8% bodyfat and havenโ€™t lost more than 1kg. Highly recommend rings.
jcovrevhleolc2h
vdkkler2h
Just got!
eluixsssinfrg2h
You've almost sold me on that
owxeije2h
What exc. Do you you rec?
hmkushcmbbanx2h
I'm not sure where I'd put them but we're doing some building might have a place for them when it's done
gfsjauafgujng1h
I bought a pull-up bar
ofbcvretmulvh1h
and I hang them from the bar
dxupdfq1h
How does the bar stay in place?
pyhqdkmjqtnss1h
Drilled into the frame
mcsoyorfngmoz1h
Screwed, rather
mbufbwv1h
Ah
qcppgvgqsyxyu1h
only thing I havenโ€™t solved yet is leg day
yjmpsfxwfeooe1h
Dig the decor btw, nice style
uquloqsf1h
ifagujhizyhmjj maybe flip it upside down.. upsidedown leg day
xidyipvvuxavq1h
Problem is Iโ€™m 92kgs. I need a lot of weight to do leg day ๐Ÿ˜ž
eoezmabkeetmy1h
Cat litter wasnโ€™t enough
nvuuzsl58min
ahnfpuakqlladr you could do some plyometric workouts for legs, looks like your ceiling is high enough...only problem might be unhappy neighbors with the noise ๐Ÿ˜…
iakuqyg54min
You could also do wall sits and put find some heavy things to put on your knees to increase the difficulty
fgfdwlq53min
You could also do some Suspension Single Leg Squats using your rings, add a hop at the end of extension to make things a little more interesting.
yjqjxpu52min
You could also use your rings to do a Suspension Bulgarian Lunge, again with hop at the end to add difficulty.
hewosrdeeehht46min
I've been doing the last 2. Problem is it doesn't really build mass/strength. I've been focusing on strength for the last 6 months. Need to find a way to continue that.
toxmxgtgtn6min
Leg day is a problem for me too. When you squat 100kg+ it's hard to replicate that without a barbell :/
dwonczsmon6min
My chest starts to feel saggy already lol despite doing quite a lot of upper body resistance band exercises ๐Ÿ˜“
wupuwoik4min
Bring on the man boobs
cihvqobrjr1min
8% is insane btw xoxegnammrnvvn wow. I was ~14% and back to 16-17% now ๐Ÿ˜‚ boredom eating non stop
