    Tonight I did Dead lift, cleans, calf raises, some shoulder exercise, traps, and abs / push ups


    What I eat would be something like Oatmeal in the morning, or just a protein shake / almond milk, and eat lunch in the middle of the day like veggies, nuts and turkey breast, and for dinner I would eat brown rice and Fish


    That's all I eat, I drink water and munch veggies through out the day. While I am typing this I am realising how much calories I am missing out on! (my lifestyle is super active)

    Time TO BECOME A STRONG AND LEAN MOTHA FUCKAAA!!
    As expected you eat little (in comparison to how much you train), move a lot, have good cardio, and you still have trouble losing fat.

    If I were you I would take a serious look at the metabolic damage videos by Layne.

    Most probably your body has adapted to low calories and you would really have to mess yourself up in order to cut some weight.

    If you raise your metabolism gradually, maybe you could cut weight and look better naked easier.

    Monitor your intake weigh everything and raise just some 50 cals per week.


    See how it goes, what do you have to lose, right?

    That's just a glaring example, and the people in the article weren't newbies like you're implying.

    It feels like you hit the bullseye. This sounds just like me! alright adding calorie each week it is! (followed by resistance training)

    thanks : )

    I'll be more shocked if you provide some evidence outside of one hearsay laden anecdote. And let me know when you connect it to frequency rather than intensity.

    You have road ahead of you.

    Starting strength then into a good 5X5 (I like madcow) and lots of calories (500 surplus is about right) for at least 6 months. A year is better. Rebuild your muscle and your metabolism, then focus on stripping away fat. Lay off all the jogging.

    Getting "cut" is a very different animal.
    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

    Frequency vs intensity is relevant why?
    I was responding to this:

    There's no such thing as over training BUT there is such thing as under eating and under resting.
    So now you're moving the goalposts.

    But anyhow:

    I have some experience with over training.

    I trained 6 days a week, judo and wrestling in the PM (very intense) and lifted in the AM for a while, eating little over 1000 calories because I wanted to look "cut".

    As expected I didn't drop any bodyfat even with the grueling training.

    I ended up throwing up after wrestling one day and was unable to eat or do anything properly for a good 3 weeks, couldn't concentrate on anything, I was literally sick from training too much, felt like ****, man.

    Over training is possible, but not as common or easy to get as people think.

    Of course this is just a story not scientific evidence or anything.
