I love total body workouts. There, I said it. I love them. Working my entire body until it screams in pain and then pissing it off by doing a bit more is fun to me. It makes it so my routines are not boring to me as well.
Squats, deadlifts, bench, abs, sprints, cardio all in 1 session. If varies day to day but those are the core sets. Arms are done every 2 days or so along with the rest of the body.
However, I dropped to 197. I am around 12pct body fat. I can’t seem to break it and I wonder if my diet is off.
I intake around 2300-2400cal a day and keep my carb count to sub 200 and usually hovers between 150-200.
Now, here is the kicker…I work in a hot kitchen 8 hours a day on my feet. This expends calories like no other. I also have an urge every now and then to snack on random crap which I know I need to elimiate.
My average day goes:
Breakfast > TB workout + 15min rope + 15 min hit + 15 min swim (if time allows).
I take a pre and a during that consist of whey + sugar (fruit or sugar + aminos)
About an hour or 2 after my work out I have an oatmeal based bar or whole wheat bread and chicken breast + some veg.
I have not lost anything even after going on Cytolean for a month. The thermos felt nice but I just couldn’t break it.
I am starting to think that for my lifestyle I may need to increase my caloric intake. What do you guys think?
1.5 hours of gym time + 8 hours of almost manual labor a day. I am at the gym 6 days a week as well (not all of it is heavy lifting though, 1 day lift, 1 day cardio etc etc)
So lost right now. Akuma and I got together but we couldn’t really figure anything out. Looking for some help.
