Toby, I'm honoured you have used some of the ideas and even more of the fact that you've taken the time to watch me Wink

Upper body session today

Ohp
13 x 50kg
8 x 52.5
13 x 40kg

Barbell row
5 sets of 8 x 75kg

Incline db press
8 x 35kg
13 x 27.5

Superset
Bb curls with Reverse Bb curls
5 sets of 13

Reverse pull downs
3 sets of 13 x 45kg

Triceps pushdown
1 set of 21 x 50kg

Very quick pace despite the volume and lack of sleep (which I place the blame squarely on my son's Wink), certainly feeling it now Smiley. I probably overdid it on weight on the ohp as I wanted to go for more reps and focus on the movement which I couldn't do on the 2nd set but ya live and learn.

Chocolate milk and fruit for recovery  Cool

Good to see you back  Smiley
I really enjoyed the freedom of IF and also the feeling of content and relaxation at about the 16 hour mark. I used Leangains 16/8 in my last contest, it was by far the easiest contest diet I've ever followed, however I caught a nasty bug about a month out which makes it difficult to compare my show condition to a standard diet.
I wasn't hungry until I had that first meal, then it got difficult to contain my appetite  Shocked
The science seems to back IF, however I do wonder if the stresses of the last month coupled with fasting are too aggressive on the body? I could be tempted to start with fasting then switch to a standard diet once body fat goes below 10%? Without more people trying it I guess we won't know.

Hey Keith Smiley
I have used leangains, adf, warrior diet, renegade, combined if with carb backloading and ketogenic diet but I like eat stop eat best as it has no rules, no set foods to eat and for a simpleton like me I feel its the easiest way to drop bf.
I know what you mean as you get sub 10 percent it does get difficult and one becomes lethargic due to the lack of calories.
Have you thought of reverse taper diet. Basically at the beginning of prep you would reduce calories and increase fasts when you have more fat then slowly reduce the number of fasts and increase calories as you get leaner to sub 10 levels

I like the sound of that and it's something that I may try in the future.  Smiley

Thought I'd outline what I've eaten today.

Post workout
1litre of chocolate milk, a pear, orange and 4 pieces of weetabix

Meat and potato (covered in gravy of course) with a side of veg

Next feed will probably be scrambled egg on toast and maybe a pint of milk.
After this I will set my fast and aim for about 20-24 hours.

Biceps and forearms are in agony today, I cannot straighten them fully. Worked out how many Bicep and reverse curls I did and it added up to about 260 reps in 2 days. 339 if I include the barbell rows and reverse pull downs.
Plus I have still 2 more upper body workouts this week to go.

Faye will have to carry the little man who weighed 14 lb yesterday Smiley

Final session of the week

Is that hack squat in a machine Joe?

We have just had one added to the gym last week, my first session tomorrow and I tested it and was surprised how hard it was with even no weight on it!!!

Is that 100kg added or 100kg total? Our is apparently 40kg before loading.

Nice deads too, raw too mainly. Top effort

Thanks Toby, I have such a fairy grip so need to test it as much as possible.
Yes mate its on a very old machine (probably older than me)I was surprised how heavy it was without any weight added.
The weight was 100kg added, no idea how much that weighs lol. Probably about same as yours!
