For those of you who have done IF before, if you could chime in with your thoughts here…
I’m going to be doing a 3mo volume cycle, so I’m looking to gain a few LBS but want to remain lean. I’m currently in the 9-12% area depending on the usual (day of week, stomach contents, holiday cookies lol)
I was considering doing the 16/8 protocol on my off days and eating normally on my training days. So it would look like this from a time perspective.
Monday (Training Day)
5am-8pm: Awake & Eating
*Fast 8pm-12 Noon Tuesday (16hrs)
Tuesday (Non-Training Day)
12 Noon - 8pm Eating (8hrs)
I’d repeat that for the rest of the week. I lift M/W/F
I don’t want to think too much about this just yet because I’d just be convincing myself that it “looks good” since I want to do this.
So what do you think? Would this work to keep my lifting gains moving while keeping the fat accumulation to a minimum?
