First a bit of stats and history. Im 32, 179cm, 80 kg, i think about 9 % bf. I have been lifting for 3 yrs and not happy with my progress. Actually im pretty sure im a hardgainer.
In the last 9 mnth ive made more progress than in the previous 2 yrs of lfting. I attribute everything to Charles Poliquin diet and training style that ive been following. Following his diet principles i got to 82 kg and 8% bf (i got biosignature done and was instructed what to eat by poliquins practitioers). However, after that for the next 5 mnths i couldnt put a single gram of muscle on. Thats why i decided to increase callories and carbs and in a mnth (while doing gvt) i put 3 kg on, but everything was fat.
Now i want to try smth different. My goal is to shred to 6% bf and put some muscle on. I know many of you will say its not possible, but i actually did it before and it worked. Now im pretty keen to do anabolic diet. I am in my 8 day of high protein/high fat/less than 30 g carb diet.
I have a couple of questions and i would really appreciate you help. Since my bf is around say 9-10%, after 12 days of no carbs, should I do those 2 days of carb refeeding? Im kinda thinking, coz im still reasonably fat, maybe it should be better for me, maybe i would shred fat faster if i do only one carb meal on the weekend rather than 1-2 high carb days?
In next post ill put up my pic so you know approx what stage im at now.
Help would be greatly appreciated!
