Last night before bed I weighed in at 231.8lbs. This was a nigh time low for me and knew it yesterday I was feeling sucked down. So, I was pretty sure last night I would do a refeed today, so I did take 100omg of Metformin XR prior to bed. I wanted to make the most of nutrient partitioning effects that Metformin can provide, 100omg is double my normal intake.
Sure enough today I hit 228.8lbs, a new low. I had some new detail coming through in my pics. I can see glutes lines, quads are more detailed, hams are coming through more. I do think in my side chest my whole shoulder to to chest area is flat. I will take pics tomorrow and show you the comparison. I did train hams and glutes, so maybe all the carbs are just going to go to my ass lol.
Last refeed I did 500g of carbs and that didn’t have much impact, so I bumped up to 660g. I added a little bit of fat through some postworkout muffins as well, to help the weight stick a little more this time. For the most part carbs are pretty evenly spread through out the day.
I had a decent workout. With my hamstring recovery training it just isn’t quite as fun not being able to go all out like I want to.
Ham/glute/calf day: (This was a neufit workout, so keep that in mind here)
