    Re: Dans gotta get looking awesome for his wedding

    All is looking swell bud... currently on a fasting for my blood test, just seen your selection of meats and my stomach gargled... only another 4 hours 'til food

    Training looks good though mate, nice to see the arms didnt give out on the previous session. I sometimes have random moments of shaking, weird eh?

    Re: Dans gotta get looking awesome for his wedding

    haha yeah mate sorry about that bud, they are mouth watering, gonna stick with the larger peperoni instead of the smaller one in future though as the small one smokes loads when cooked in the ommlette and the other didnt, plus after eating theres a proper film of fat in your mouth after having the smaller ones which didn't happen with the large one. Even though there is similar amounts of fat in them. Not tried the other stuff yet though, think it will be a frankfurter tomorrow mornin. Love keto!

    yeah the shakes are mental, proper elbows all over the place, not good when theres a bar hovering over the front of your face either!!

    - lmao... what are you trying to do to me!!!! *collapses in hunger*

    Does sound good though mate, personally prefer my keto to get its fats more from health sources such as olive oil, omega etc and have one meal a day with 'bad fats' as I call them. But tbh not a biggy.

    Them keto sticks started working yet? Should be in keto now though, nice to see you're monitoring your mood, some people find they become lethargic when going in to it. I was fine whn going in to keto, but any exercise or anything which required power excursion didnt happen too well lol. I changed my training for the few weeks to slightly higher reps and dropped the weights down.

    Lmfao, yea the shakes are never good, got a muscle spasm when trying for a 140kg 1rpm last year and saw my life flash before me as the bar seemed to speed up coming down

    Re: Dans gotta get looking awesome for his wedding

    sorry bud, yeah I know what you mean but as its only for 8 weeks then I reckon I can cope with some bad fats for a change, theoretically it should all be getting burned up anyway so healthy or bad shouldn't matter too muchly.

    yeah been using the stix a while now, somedays its 1 or 2 higher than the trace colour and others its back in the trace again. Think it depends how hydrated you are too though so not too worried.

    had a couple of comments that my face is losing weight so thats a bonus (although I do think its just cos I had my haircut)

    As for mood, I am a bit lethargic in the morning and find myself yawning alot, but again I think thats a bit of dehydration too as usually ok by late morning.

    Re: Dans gotta get looking awesome for his wedding

    Ok guys, pre keto I was taking the following:-

    IGF-2 Immediate Growth Factor
    http://www.appliednutriceuticals.com/product-igf-2.php

    Neovar
    http://www.appliednutriceuticals.com/product-neovar.php

    Since starting the keto I have refrained from taking these as the creatine (neovar) says to take twice a day with carbs, so as I aren't really having many carbs I've stopped taking those for now. Also stopped the IGF as I'm cutting I didn't expect to increase size or strength at all so thought I'd save them until afterwards.

    I'm currently planning on restarting the IGF until I finish the ones I have remaining and then I am going to switch onto these:

    HGHUp
    http://www.appliednutriceuticals.com/product-HGHup.php

    All reviews I have read have been positive and I'm hoping they will help with the cutting. I have 2 bottles of HGHUp and about 3/4 of a bottle of IGF-2 so I should be good until mid april.

    I am going to be including a bit more in my journal about my experiences with these supps and will copy them to a proper review if my crazed whittering ends up readable.

    I am going to attempt to monitor the following each day:-
    Sleep
    Mental Alertness
    Energy
    Motivation
    Mood/Aggression
    Stress
    Libido
    Joints
    Endurance
    Strength
    Quality of Training
    Pump and Vascularity
    Muscle Hardness/Density
    Body Composition and Look
    Appetite
    Overall thoughts of the day

    I have copied the categories from another thread so bear with me if one or 2 get removed if I don't feel they are something I can measure.

    I will be starting the IGF-2 again in the morning and as I've had a month off them then there should be some positives appearing.



    As for the keto diet, I am having no problems with it, my fats are not very healthy fats, but I'm thinking as its only for 8 weeks and theoretically it should all be getting burnt anyway then I should be ok. You've seen my most recent pictures so I don't think I need to take anymore just yet, I will do that towards the end of feb.

    Stay Tuned

    Dan

    Re: Dans gotta get looking awesome for his wedding

    10 x 30kg + bar
    10 x 30kg + bar
    10 x 40kg + bar
    10 x 40kg + bar

    Widegrip pulldown
    10 x 35kg
    6 x 80kg (pb)
    5.5 x 80kg
    5.5 x 80kg

    Closegrip pulldown
    6 x 80kg
    6 x 80kg
    5.5 x 80kg
    5.5 x 80kg

    Re: Dans gotta get looking awesome for his wedding

    Legs Today

    Squats - used a weight a bit lighter than last time as I want to make sure my form is right first before increasing, think it was better this time than last time but towards the 5th or 6th rep I was feeling light headed even though I was breathing throughout, any ideas anyone?
    10 x bar (warmup)
    10 x 20kg + bar weight
    10 x 20kg + bar
    10 x 20kg + bar

    Laying Hamstring Curls
    10 x 45kg
    10 x 45kg
    7.5 x 45kg

    45deg Leg Press
    10 x 100kg + platform
    10 x 130kg + plat
    10 x 130kg + plat

    Standing Calf Raise (Single Leg)
    10 x 30kg
    10 x 52.5kg
    10 x 52.5kg (done fast)
    7.5 x 52.5kg (done slowly)

    change of plan for the HGHUP as it requires 500 - 1000 cals over maintenance so will start on it in april instead of when cutting.

    Label attached to each bottle with the words:-

    IF YOU CAN'T GROW ON THIS STUFF, FIND A NEW HOBBY
    on the front and the words:-

    WARNING: Users will experience extreme strength gains and rapid muscle growth. Use with Caution, you may require a new wardrobe.
    haha, lets hope it works then.

    Re: Dans gotta get looking awesome for his wedding

    cheers matey, don't worry mate I know you're here in spirit anyway.

    yeah things are still going well although I don't feel like theres any weight coming off though, having read others comments on keto its always 'the weight is dropping off' or 'the weight is flying off' etc, I know its only been 3 weeks though so I won't get disheartened just yet.

    Has your diet changed much from the one a few pages back bud?

    Have you jumped on the scales over the past 3 weeks? I know its not the best indicator but it will give you an idea. Argos do a BF% reader with body muscle % and water % which reasonably accurate for £20... would be a good way of monitoring progress pherhaps?

    I bought one the other day which come up with 'Error 3' which in the book means too much body mass ... either im muscle bound or a fat bast@rd... im thinking the latter

    Re: Dans gotta get looking awesome for his wedding

    nah not changed the diet really mate,

    5:45 - 3 eggs, pepperoni, dbl cream, cheese
    9:30 - tuna & mayo
    12:45 - celery, chicken, peanuts
    18:30 - mince, broccoli, cheese
    21:30 - peanut butter

    I know a big gap in the arvo but can't split meals much more and don't want to overdo the cals.

    Yeah I got some scales from asda for 15 quid which do weight, bf% and water%.
    Gonna have a weigh on friday night, before the carb up on saturday.



    nah muscle bound obviously matey.

    Re: Dans gotta get looking awesome for his wedding

    aye well as said before scott if not pinning too many hopes on the readings but just using them as a guide from 1 week to the next then I don't think it matters how accurate they are. You're either losing % or gaining % thats all that really matters eh.


    Ok lets update some details:-
    Sleep
    Saturday Night - 6.5 hrs - pretty good, had a bit of falling out with the future wife on saturday night so was a bit annoyed when trying to get to sleep. Got Up at 7:15. 1 hr walk at 7:30.
    Sunday Night - 6.5hrs - She was still in a funny mood so took a little time to get to sleep but was pretty good once I got to sleep. Woke at 5, got up at 5:10, alert at 5:30
    Monday Night - 7.5hrs - Proper dead to the world, loo getup at 4, then just light dozing really. Woke at 5, Up at 5:10, alert at 5:20.

    Mood
    Sat/Sun - Pretty decent mood all weekend really, Sophie was out with her mum for most of it so I was left on the ps3 killing lots of nasty things haha.
    Monday - Pretty down in the dumps sitting at work from 6:30 til 18:00. Bleak miserable weather and grey skies didn't help much, had the feeling of everyday being groundhog day.
    Tuesday - Similar feeling of groundhog dayishness, but I guess coming to work in the dark and going home in the dark will do that. Least its a 15:00 finish today and then hit the gym for some push therapy haha.

    Hmmm bizarre, has there been much of a weight difference between when you started and now? When I was on it, I didnt initially feel like I was losing weight, but the scales were saying differently.

    Are you including fish oils in your diet too?

    Re: Dans gotta get looking awesome for his wedding

    There just had some now.

    Aye well I'll see what the scales say on friday, not overly worried though. If its not working then its not working plain and simple.
