So in my journey from 130lbs to my current weight of 192lbs, I have put on a little fat. Not much, but just enough to start to blur my abs. I think I've finally made the transition from "ripped" to "lean".
This will never do! So as of today I have started a recomp. Not really a cut, just trying to add a little muscle while burning a bit of fat (not everyone believes you can do both at the same time but I definitely do).
Currently, my diet is eat as much as I can of everything, all the time (but mostly clean). I drink a weight gainer shake for breakfast and eat a double cheeseburger post-workout (that's the dirty part). I eat an unholy amount of carbs, all through the day, and generally have one mega cheat meal at the weekend.
My new improved diet will be CBL style a la John Kiefer. I will be drinking a whey shake for breakfast (no carbs) and eating low carb until I train, which is usually about 18.30, then once I've trained I'll drink a carby mass gainer shake, and then eat loads of - mostly clean - carbs until bedtime.
I'l do this for the next 8 weeks or so, and depending on the results I might start skipping breakfast (so it's more of an IF style protocol) and may even add some fasted morning cardio! (gasp!)
So my question is this: who's with me? Someone else must fancy a recomp. We could keep each other motivated, use this thread to discuss our chosen methods, spitball ideas on how to improve etc. We could even have some kind of challenge like we do with pull ups every January.
Anyone up for it?
