It's amazing. Didn't do back squats for 2 months. When I finally got back to gym 1.5 weeks ago, my legs were weak as f, and sore in middle of my workout. I've had 3-4 leg days since, so now my body thinks it's business as usual. But the middle of the workout burning soreness thing was new haha

People have always thought me strange in that I love leg day. I just have to be careful as they are my fastest growing muscle group.

When I first started training, all I did was legs since I boxed and thought that training upper body would impede my flexibility.

So for about a year, legs were all I trained.

I'm right there with you, big fan of leg day. Usually hit them twice a week ontop of 30-45mins of cardio each day.

This morning was leg day actually, I took it kind of easy since they were pretty damn sore. Was able to get into the gym every day last week, so that was nice. Think I'm sitting at around 185lbs now. Fiance says I should go a little thinner for our wedding, so I'm experimenting with that. Probably going to cut this week since I have a wedding to go to this coming weekend. See where I end up after that.

I need to work my legs more. I actually enjoy leg day, i just don't like walking like a new born giraffe for 2 days after. The gym starts their 24/7 schedule again today thank goodness. Closing at 7 pm on a Saturday was not ideal for me.

THAT'S where those extras came from

I did "backyard" workouts all weekend, hope to try to get to the gym tonight and maybe do anything except legs.

It takes awhile. When you do decide to get back to business.....you will kill it!

Started my cut last week to lose the covid fluff from a full on 12 week bulk.....if you can call it a bulk when you weight 146 pounds. Already down 6 pounds in a week and half. At this rate my cut shouldn't last too long. Hopefully I can go back to eating and progression soon. I will say that it's nice to see my abs and my "V" again. Shitty thing is, none of my clothes fit....again.

Speaking of, this raises the question how am I losing it so quickly? I'm honestly trying to do it moderately at a rate of a pound a week. My maintenance calories are roughly 1900-2000 as of now and I'm trying to hover around intake of 1600-1700/day, but this shit is just falling off of me. Don't get me wrong, there are worse problems to have but I'm also not trying to lose what little bit of muscle I've gained at the same time. I am making sure to get 1g /lb of protein in each day and actually cycling protein every 4 hours throughout the day to maximize protein synthesis during the cut. It's crazy though at how only after a week, aside from the love handles that are left, in certain light I look shredded, veins popping out everywhere and can see the striations in my muscles.

Even with the girlfriend, work stress and normal everyday life; all I can think about is getting rid of these last few pounds of fat so I can start adding calories & progressing again. This damn lifestyle has consumed me.....and I'm loving what I see in the mirror. No one told me that doing this would lead to a mild onset of vanity.

Your body is just more efficient at this process now. Remember how we discussed the longer and more times you do it...it gets easier.

You've set new baselines for your insulin sensitivity and partitioning ratios!

Agree with Rmtt. I'll add that you could probably up your protein intake if you want to.

Weighed in at 182 yesterday after work yesterday. Had my suit for the wedding show up for a test fitting and everything was too big. So I'm basically going to tell them to drop a size on everything. Suit will then show up 2 weeks prior to the wedding, so hopefully everything fits then lol. Need to hold this size for the next 3monts FML.

Also had engagement photos on Monday, they turned out really solid. Girl does some good work for sure!

Anyways, lifted legs today before work. Threw in a lot of cardio since I'll be driving back up to PA after work today. Not looking forward to 9hrs in the car lol.

I did notice on a TDEE calculator yesterday that my recommended protein intake should be around 179g/day. Seemed a little high to me, but that was with lower carb intake as well. I think I'm going to play around with my macros this go around and see what happens. Thanks for the advice gents!

Getting back into the gym 2 weeks ago definitely hurt (physically & mentally - no strength/endurance), but that was expected. I'm usually around 210-213, but fully clothed on my freight scale, I'm down to 198-201lb (I'm 6' 2.75").

Since my strength and stamina are trying to build back up, I'm working on that with extra cardio to slim down a smidge more, then will work on the bulking. Being extra slim during summertime in FL doesn't hurt, and the wife isn't complaining.

Agree with JP10

When I lower carbs....I up protein. Carbs are protein sparing so you don't need as much when your carb macros are higher.

But when you lower them, your body can convert protein into sugar if needed by a process I have described on here before. It's rare that it happens...but still could happen.

Made it in last night, chest/bi. This morning my connective tissues are what are sore, despite me keeping it light. Blood was 45 when I woke up too, despite the midnight 20g of glucose tabs, and the series of handfuls of cheerios at 9:30 before I fell asleep. Might have to lower the long-acting insulin dose a few.

I'm sorry Moddie, I did NOT capture your lost pounds, I weighed in at 192 last night. That means I lost AT LEAST 10 of muscle because the belly certainly isn't any smaller than the last time I went.

Myself and one other "more senior" member of the gym crowd were the only ones with any face coverings, and his was around his neck. Because I ran with the gators on, lifting isn't any challenge aerobically
