Guys, I need your help …
Ok my situation:
I have been training seriously for a little less than 2 years. I am 21, 74 Kg and 174cm tall. Around 18% BF if I had to guess.
I have been doing 5/3/1 the whole time.
DL ~105KG BP~65 Squat~75
DL~150 BP~90 Squat ~125
So I used to be quite happy with this, but lately I have been wanting to do everything at once. Get stronger and lose fat while gaining muscle…
I only have 6 more weeks to train before I will be traveling for 2 months (3 weeks of which will be hiking (Annapurna Circuit) and one I am expecting to be hard labor (volunteering in Nepal).
This somehow fucks with my head I kind of started thinking that all the strength I gain now will be lost (which I realize is completely stupid) and I decided to lose some weight instead.
So I started with the following 2 weeks ago:
Fasting (some nuts and peanut butter during the day) till around 5-7 (until after the workout) with eating roughly 2250 Kcal a day. I honestly love it during the day, but it makes the workouts soo weak.
The workouts were so shitty that I even stopped writing them down. Deadlift went down to something like 1203 (from 12010 a few weeks before).
1 and a half weeks ago I started doing the 10.000 Swing KB challenge (I thought I just wasn’t used to training fasted and since I had read so many good things about it I wanted to give it some time and the conditioning/cardio felt very good, fasted)
Today I felt great on the way to the gym and decided to do some Squats before the swings. I missed the 2nd rep with 100Kgs… I had never missed a Squat in my whole life and did 100*8 just a month ago…
Honestly, what I need is just someone to tell me what to do. I think what my goals are, which started to become clearer to me whilst writing this, is just to Ã¢Â?Â?lean outÃ¢Â?Â? but donÃ¢Â?Â?t lose strength in the process. That just makes me crazy.
The best progress I made was last December when I ate 3.500 Kcal a day (around 220C, 185F,200P a day). I didn’t gain a pound but got quite a bit stronger, then it was Christmas and I couldn’t keep up with the training.
I quite honestly donÃ¢Â?Â?t know what do now. I think most importantly I need to get my nutrition fixed. But I donÃ¢Â?Â?t know how much to eat. Eat breakfast or not? (I like it not eating bf, before I always had oats and milk and stuff)
My nutrition itself is pretty good, pretty low in carbs (maybe too low) and pretty high in fat (I eat a lot of ground beef). Something like 40/30/30 I would say.
The reason why I am asking you guys to Ã¢Â?Â?just tell me what to doÃ¢Â?Â? is that I feel like if I start looking around again I will just do the next stupid thing…
Training wise I thought it might be best to do something like 5/3/1 with 5 progression (I think AMRAP sets will just make me go crazy until I get a bit stronger again) and Swings as conditioning after each workout, I like 2 days on, 1 off. If I feel like I need it I take a 2nd day of from time to time.
Writing this down has already helped me organize my head a bit and made me a little less mad (I was furious before, after missing that SquatÃ¢Â?Â¦) I just want to emphasize that it wasn’t just a bad day.
Any help would be appreciated! If I was a writer I’d say I have a writer’s block atm.
