  1. How low do you go?

    Do you guys ever eat more on a day when you've done more exercise? Like I usually diet on 2000 calories a.day. but today I ate maybe 3000 or a smidge over. But I did run 14 miles today which will have burned off the extra 1000 and some more. Im too hungry on high cardio days to stick to my usual numbers
  2. Can you run?

    Usually do about 40 miles a week. Making.cutting loads easier. I dont enjoy it but been fitter just makes.work life easier for me
  3. Do you add on the calories you've burned doing cardio

    Today I've ran 14 miles and had a large pizza (all I've eaten bar a post run shake) Good thing about doing that amount of cardio is the sheer deficit its created.means a pizza hut pizza and a 300 calorie shake still leaves me in a deficit
  4. Do you add on the calories you've burned doing cardio

    Yeah thankfully it's less than a stone away now. Looking forward to been able to slowly bump these numbers up soon
  5. Do you add on the calories you've burned doing cardio

    My weight loss.has.been about.1kg a week or so. Sometimes more or less. But I've dropped.in total 10-15kg and I'm not down to my last stone to lose until I've hit my goal I figure.the closer I get.the slower it will be week by week
  6. Do you add on the calories you've burned doing cardio

    Yeah usually around 40 miles a week. I'm 6ft and 89kg currently so I imagine sticking to 2000 consistently would be a bit low which is why I tend to go towards 2500 on high mileage days if need be
  7. Hello guys I'm curious about this. So let's say you're on a cut eating 2000 calories a day. On the days when you do cardio, lets say you've burned off 800 calories in this activity. Do you still stick to the usual 2000 or do you eat up to 2800? I'm noticing on days when I'm doing my more calorie consuming cardio that im struggling to stick to my usual limit. I usually do allow up to 500 calories on top of my usual if I've ran 8+ miles
  8. Binge eating

    I find it hard to stick to my 2000 goal on days when I do alot of running. Like today for example I ran just over 9 miles but ended up eating between 2300-2500. However I'm not too fussed as surely the exercise still negates the extra calories and still leaves me.in deficit? But overall i dont end up binging much or often and usually doesnt end up too bad due to cardio picking up the slack
  9. How are you filling your time today

    12 mile run. Gardening Then a pizza hut
  10. Sandbag workouts.......

    I've been filling a daysack full of bags of stones/ water bottles and other things I can find to make up weight can manage most sorts of exercises this way with some improvisation
  11. Resistance bands

    Hi guys I'm looking at picking up a decent set of resistance bands to use with my home workouts since the gym is done Just for things like seated rows/ facepulls/ straight arm pulldowns/ flies Dont really want to spend a fortune if avoidable Can anyone recommend a set?
  12. Losing weight and gaining muscle? 2nd time round

    got a update on this. Been a few.months and still training hard. Obviously weights wise I'm now home workout with weighted body weights. Cardio wise I'm alot fitter and can manage 8 miles at about 7:15 per mile. I weigh 90.7kg now. I'm wanting to get to Maybe 83-85. I'm hoping to be lean at that stage. Then that would give me a good base to start a slow bulk so I dont get unfit and can try.maintain a relatively low body fat I'd like to think since I re started weights I have put some muscle on. Given I've been eating 2000-2500 a day (higher end only on days if I've done a big maybe 7-8+ mile run) with 150g protein a day or so my weight loss has only been 1-2kg a month while seeing more difference in the mirror then scales. Here's a few current pictures of me I know theres a noticable size difference in one side to the other I had reconstruction surgery so hopefully getting back into training will even out soon
  13. Routine while gym is shut

    Hey guys so gym is shut obviously so I'm having to make do with weighted bodyweight exercises. My.question is would I need to increase the frequency of my workouts? Like say usually I'd do legs/back+bi/chest and tri/ once a week. Now with the lack of weight would I need to do it 2x a week to maintain similar results or minimal loss in this time
  14. Hey guys, long winded story.. When I was about 20-21 I'd been really into my weightlifting for years and maxed out at 140 bench 180 squat and 235 deadlift. Since then I've joined the forces and nearly been in 5 years. Then I got lazy stopped weightlifting and training and had surgery. About 3 or 4 months ago I woke up and have been doing alot of cardio getting ready for a promotional course next year. Now I want to get serious back into my weightlifting aswell. I've got about 10kg to lose I'd say. But along the way I'd love to put some of my old size back on, I've read into muscle memory and wondered if it would be possible? I'll be doing my old weight routine along side maybe 35-40 miles running per week on a calorie deficit. Maybe eating 2000-2500 a day depending on days activity and making sure I'm getting a good amount of protein in Is it possible to gain some.muscle back while losing the weight and getting fitter?
