Ok guys I've been doing this "low carb" now for 2 weeks and actually I've lost 2lbs in the process. So I've started to boost my carb intake up to about 200 like JLone talked about and see how that goes. I'm adding the carbs in the morning and pre-workout. I make a shake from oats, peanutbutter and milk. I'm keeping my proteins up and rather cutting down my fat intake. I'm not that worried about cutting my fats because I'm getting alot of good fats from various sources like mackreal, fish oil and herring. So for now the carbs go up and fat down and sticking with approx. 3200cal per day :-).
@cavaman101: as you can see on my previous post I've quit my previous routine and I'm doing 5/3/1 with Assistance Work #4: Periodization Bible by Dave Tate. This assistance work suits me well because I want to be able to rotate the kind of exercises I do.
I've done an Excel document so I can monitor my progress, both in the major lifts and also in my assistance work.
I worked with the program this week to find out where to start in weights and the outcome was rather disturbing to say the least. In my mind I was in a fairly good shape but that was sadly not the case :-). Having trained handball (for those who want to know: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Team_handball ) for 15 years on a competitive level , I really thought I had something left in me. But being out of the game for 10 years and a total hip replacement last April had obviously caught up with me.
As you see I've got some work ahead of me and looking forward to see how fast I'll progress, especially my legs, which I've not been able to use for anything else but getting me between A and B for some years.
If I would make a training log should I do it in this thread or make a new one somewhere else?
One more thing, I'm very impressed with the response to my questions here. Gotten good advice, pointers to start my research and so on and so forth, thanks guys.
I will for sure stay on this forum.
I wrote this in a hurry so my grammar might be a bit off here and there so bare with me (An Icelander living in Denmark :-)).
