Am I really a type 1b??? Idk …
I recently took the thib army neurotype test in dec 2019 and March 2020 because I wanted to be sure. In dec 19 I was going through some family issues, and in March I was a little less stressed out. I won’t consider myself the cliche super confident like the articles suggest because I honestly don’t give a shit about dominating every situation… only want to dominate when it counts. I guess I see myself as silently competitive… waiting to pounce on an opportunity with viscous malice …then chilling out as of nothing happened.
Motivation during workouts has never been a big issue for me. I maintain 10-12% body fat year round. Currently #1 at my sales job and doing decently well for my age (24).
BUT I HAVE A HUGE PROBLEM
Some days I can’t seem to be motivated during work (7am-2pm)…I’ve tried everything… Ltyrosine in the morning, macuna puriens… cordiceps militaris…Still nothing. My coworkers call me the most inconsistent hard worker they’ve ever seen. Some days I literally set records… & some days I just chill out and Don’t give a shit. How can I make my performance more consistent. How can I BOOST dopamine without relying on increasing caffeine (I drink one cup a day)…
PERHAPS I AM NOT REALLY a type1B and should change my approach? I’m literally considering getting blood work to see if I have hormone issues.
I have plans to start a business but I must unlock the next level of consistent focus otherwise my goals will not be reached. I plan on working on my side business after work/working out but the energy / focus is just not there sometimes (it feels like it’s in a cage waiting to be unleashed)…
Random notes that might help:
Body weight : 185lbs
Body fat: 12% ??? (See attached image)
-Breakfast : high protein (80g protein, 20g fat, 20g carb)
-lunch: (40g carb, 40g protein, 20g fat)
-post workout (50g protein, glycine, taurine)
-dinner (40g protein, 20g fat, 20g carb)
** 2200 calories per day usually …
**I have the weirdest cravings. I usually crave steak or something very meaty. I’ve never craved carbs or sugar…
I know this was a long post but I look up to thib army’s advice because it is properly researched. I just need to find a way to maintain motivation everyday without blowing my adrenaline receptors up
