I'm good strength wise though. I do a lot of heavy lifting at work, but use my right thigh to assist in lifting things above my waist. The bags typically weigh between 65 to 100 lbs each. It's kinda pissing me off cause everyone else has "medical problems" which prevent then from helping me out. Really, they're all a bunch of lazy ass mother fuckers. Just got done with 4 of them right now. I'll save the rest for tomorrow. I don't owe these fuckers any more than what I've already done.

Destroying my abs again tonight. It's getting easier and easier to ignore the burn.

Weighed myself again for the first time in ages this morning. It seems I'm down another few kg to 78kg, it's amazing what a slight portion reduction in just a meal or two throughout the day can accomplish. It's extremely hard for me to believe I was 95kg 3 years ago now. Photos of me from back then are awful. :oops:

To celebrate, I did a marathon of 75 squats of my new bodyweight in the gym this morning. Can't really walk now. :D

It's getting difficult for me to keep my abs shredded. Used to be fairly easy, now I can't eat a fuckin bag of chips without 2 of them(my lower 2 abs) instantly disappearing. I gotta eat either keto, or just super low cal in order to have visible abs at all. Can't eat any of the stuff I really like.

I need to start eating keto myself. Cut out the bit of bread, potatoes, and rice out and double down on butter and nuts.

Although bread does come in handy as sandwiches are easy to pull out of a lunchbox and eat at work.

It's been a couple weeks since I posted an update. Got rid of my annoying side fat. My waist is back to 25.5 inches.

Finally squatted 405 lbs for 1 rep below parallel! Also restored my bench press back up to 300- 10 more lbs to go and it will be back where it was. I recently bent-over rowed 275 lbs for 1 rep using a mixed grip, as well.

I've been filled with so much rage at my weakness recently. I was yelling like a fucking Dragon Ball Z character before and after that 300 lbs bench press, and when I powered up to the top of that 405 lbs squat I screamed out in pure rage.

On a side note, there is actually some evidence that a DBZ-style "power up" actually works:

I've said it before, and I'll say it again - you've a funny definition of the word "weakness", as that's a very nice number for a squat. :P

What weight and height are you out of curiosity?

My next experiment come early Jan will be a strict low carb high fat diet. I'd love to get my bodyfat closer to 10% or even below it. If nothing else though, eating a higher fat diet will mean that everything I put in my mouth will have less than 3 ingredients.

I disagree :) I will always be weak. I do appreciate the compliment though, and it definitely feels nice to have finally broken into the 400's!

I'm 6' 0". I haven't weighed myself in a little while, but the last time I did I weighed 193 lbs.

That's something I definitely have experience with :wink: I was actually on zero carb when I first started lifting back in 2007, and I ate a strict zero carb diet all the way until last October. I've done periodic carbups since then, but in between carbups I still eat strict zero carb. I'm interested to hear how low carb goes for you!

One of the benefits of eating this way is definitely its simplicity: so many dietary variables are held constant that really all you have to focus on is when you eat and how much you eat (as in, eating enough to fuel workouts and maintain or grow muscular development- as far as gaining fat, it is extremely difficult to do so on a zero carb diet; most people can eat as much meat and fat as they want without gaining bodyfat). When I started doing carbups, I ran into the problem of having to decide what kind of food to eat for the first time in years- it was really hard, having to consider all those different options!

I've started my new low carb diet; I'm getting nearly 50% of my calories from fat now. Slapping large quantities of butter on everything does take a bit of getting used to. :)

I also want to go completely dairy and gluten free, I've reason to think I may have allergies relating to the former. Diary free protein is easy to come by, but finding a butter substitute for fat will be a little tough, but there's always Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Peanut/Almond butter and Nuts in general. The second my current bag of Whey is done, I'll be phasing all dairy out of my diet.

Just got my "TITIN Force™ Shorts System" yesterday; which was on back order for the past month. I'm wearing both the "TITAN Force™ Shirt System" (Size: Small) and "TITIN Force™ Shorts System" (Size: Extra Small) now; which puts me at 128 lbs. I'm at 118 lbs when I'm not wearing my TITIN Force™ Gear.

Well, I can definitely say a Keto diet works very well. A few months later and my abs are really starting to show now. :check:

I'm getting my Fat mainly from Olive Oil and Coconut Oil, but also Beef Tallow and Lard (when I have it), basically every meal for me is Meat/Fish, vegetables and one of those fat sources.

Hmmm, we haven't had this thread bumped in awhile. Might as well do it with Natalie's current state.
