Sorry everyone, after going to Puero Rico I have been playing catch up with clients and fell off on the blog posts. So, lets catch up! I had been floating around 219lbs in PR and this was with no cardio and limited moving because of my torn rec fem. Sunday was my flight home and it was a long day. I did have a 3 hour lay over in Orlando, so I just walked laps in the airport for 25 minutes just to get some type of activity. That next day, Monday, I woke up at 216.4!! WTF. I dropped nearly 3lbs traveling. This was fairly shocking for just sitting on a plane and barely moving all day. So yesterday and today I have introduced some high carb days. Basically just double my carb intake and lowered protein down. After day 1, I dropped another 0.4lbs, so high day number 2 is today. I have never been this lean on this much food and this little cardio. Also not to mention I can still sleep a solid 7 hours and I feel great lol, its crazy. Having the longer prep and planning in more rest and high days as worked like a charm. Listen to me here overestimate the fat you have to lose. Plan a prep that allows you to diet 5-7 days on deficit and 2 days at maintenance and keep a slow rate of fat loss 0.5-1.0% per week. This will minimize you metabolic dieting adaptation and hold lean mass the best that you can.
Update on my partial rec fem tear, it is healing extremely fast. I have been doing two Neufit session a day on it. I have full range of motion back, there is no bruising and no water under the skin. I also get a better contraction in it after each session. This won’t be a limitation at all for this prep, so I am really encouraged here.
