    Well, I will tell you this. There are people out there getting paid BIG money to figure out the best way to get athletes to reach their goals. Proven programs work because they are actually proven, lol. If muscle hypertrophy was as simple as doing a little of this and a little of that and being okay with it as long as you can lift more the next week then people would be getting paid to figure out other things. Progression, rep schemes, volume, tempo, periodization.....all of these things factor into programs that have been intensively studied and used.

    I don't understand about picking the "best" program. Unless you try it, how do you know what is "best"? And what is good for one goal one year may be different for the next goal six months down the road. You want one that looks like what you already do, right? If you always do what you have always done, you will always get what you always got. Or something like that lol. What is the purpose of the idea "if I do an upper body thing, then I make sure to do a lower body thing to balance it out"? That doesn't really make any sense to me at all. If you are doing a FULL BODY day, then do a full body day! Chest, back, shoulders, legs, abs.

    Also, at least do your big stuff first and the iso stuff last or not at all. Butterflies are an accessory, not a compound. They actually don't do a whole lot for your chest compared to the myriad of other things out there but you always have them first. Step ups are a compound, not an accessory. Leg extensions are WAY inferior to compounds because a leg compound exercise hits more than your quads (it hits, adductors/abductors, hams, glutes as well as quads).

    I just see so many women be all wishy washy with their training and I fervently urge them to take the bull by the horns and really ride it! Those are some of the chicks who spin their wheels, in my opinion. Do you ALWAYS have to do a program? No. Once you can train intuitively, programs are not a requirement. But the upper level bodybuilders often PAY for specific programs, they trust them that much.

    Just because you are still progressing in strength gains does not mean you couldn't do better, especially with hypertrophy goals.

    Off soapbox! But that goes for you Vanessa, too, lol. If WEG were here I would be waving at her as well hee hee. Pick something and stick it. I
    haven't been in here in 3 months or so, hows the physical progress coming along? Just something to ask yourself.
    ya I am aware leg extensions are not compound and that butterflies are an accesory..I just added leg extensions for the hell of it to see what I could do. I am trying to up my bench so I take turns doing the bench press, doing butterflies, pec/des, iron cross and tricep work to strengthen it up.
    compounds first for the day ya mean? hmm..sometimes I alternate with other stuff while I am resting in between sets..also the order I list them on here is just the order I got them written down on paper and NOT the order I do them..
    I always do a compound Row..always..and design the rest around it.

    What is your desired number on protein ?

    It does seem tough to get elevated levels but keep calories down. Looks like you are carving out room by limiting those carbs. That demonstrates a heap of discipline. Impressive. I'm trying to do the same. Doubly impressive is that you are doing this and lifting hard.

    I've got to locate some of those no-carb Monsters. I wasn't aware of them.

    Gritty determination for the long haul > momentary frustrations. You are doing great.
    oooh about 180 grams..protein but that may or may not be possible at 1800 calories a day..

    That is about 720 calories, so you have 1100 still left. It is totally possible. Eat more volume carbs to fill you up. You may want to take some of your fat cals and allocate to carbs, it might make you feel better/more full. Or not. That part takes experimentation. I wouldn't eat bacon, for example, because its basically empty calories, but alot of them. I would put that towards something more macro-valuable that will help me with hunger and protein levels.

    If you are going to have a back day that has deadlifts, you need to move it away from a leg day. I am not sure if you are doing full body or a split here, its confusing. Some days appear to be an attempt at full body, others look split?

    I eat for living, not just lifting.

    oh like I know anything about most of that stuff Row..I have been systematically moving up in my weights all winter long while eating more calories..I have gotten stronger and can lift a lot more then when I started with just the bar last fall..on some days I lift sets of 12 with lower weights or til exhausted..on some days I may only do sets of five if lifting heavy..ya i know its kinda nuts and all over the place..I have this idea in my head that both will work together to produce growth..I am not saying I am right...sheesh just saying it is what I have been doing so far..ya I know its a hodge podge and impossible to figure out..
    If I do deads at the beginning of the week then I cannot even attempt to do say, squats til two or three days later..til my legs feel strong again. so on the in between day? I fill it in with other stuff..sometimes its bench or shoulder work..so if it looks like mostly upper body that is because...uh..it is

    what do you mean by volume carbs...carbs worry me ya know...ate too many of them for too many years and got really fat doing it..you mean veggies?

    worried about this cut...
    worried its not gonna work
    worried I'll do something drastic and jinx myself
    worried about all the ED issues I carry around with me
    this is the end of the third week. I dont feel or look a d*mn bit different
    ya..my calories are getting lower then 1800..I see it and dont really care.
    see this what I do to myself..
    if 1800 isnt working then 1600 then 1400...
    sticking to the diet is not the issue
    i have starved myself as punishment many many times before..
    I hate that my stomach sticks out more then it did last fall
    I dont care how much abs I built underneath..
    what good is if I never get to see them..
    ya I am stronger
    so what..like I need to be a bigger me..
    what if it just never happens? what if this is as good as it gets?

    I know what you mean..I am in the same boat. It seems like i take one step forward and go two steps back.. I will lose a few pounds and then gain them back and the thing is i am doing nothing different. I have been gaining and losing the same 5-6 pounds for months..I am wondering if this is as good as it gets too. Some mornings i wake up and think screw it I am 46 why am i killing myself. I look around and i see people my size and bigger who seems so happy and at peace with who they are..why can't this be me..I just can't see being 135-140 pounds at 5'2 ..the tummy/hips thing is what is driving me mad.

    LBM you made a good point in one of my posts - about having an image in your mind of what you want to look like and not feeling satisfied if you haven't reached it. Now I get to return the favour.
    Remember this advice:

    when it comes to that nasty voice that creeps in your head...
    the one that likes to tell you things like
    you're too old
    too weak
    too dumb
    too out of shape
    you will never look like------ no matter how hard you try
    you know that voice? It is not your friend. it is the enemy
    tell that voice to f*ck off! now practice it over and over til you mean it!


    Lately when I feel like this I've been trying to focus on the process, the journey if you will, rather than the end result. I've come to realize that I have perfectionist ideals with average ability. I will never attain the level at which I feel successful, so now I try to find satisfaction in the little victories. The battle contributes to who you are. Small consolation on those frustrating days when you look in the mirror and are dissatisfied by the image you see reflected back at you, but I try to latch on to the inner you. Wouldn't it be great if our outsides were a reflection of who we are on the inside? I've read your journal. You've been through so much and yet you've given of yourself so much to your family and you continously provide support to others on this board. You should be proud of who you are, whether you lose the weight or not - but you will.

    You need to trust in the process. It will happen. Trust me, I've been through it twice.

    Don't sabotage your success by cutting your calories too low. Stick with the plan. It will happen, but it is slow. It's kind of like 2 steps forwards and 1 step back. So many things can disguise the progress you are making to the point that you think it isn't. For me trying to see changes in the mirror is useless. I see myself everyday so it's hard to see the progress. What I found kept me motivated was tracking my measurements (and realizing that while some may not seem to be budging others are, so progress is being made). You can also try taking progress photos every 3 months or so. Then the progress is more visually aparent.

    haaahaaaa
    quoting me back to me...I love it!
    yes, the enemy in my head is a strong one
    one I have battled my entire life..
    some days its hard to ignore it..
    I am impatient by nature..I dont wanna wait..I want it to happen right now!
    yes, I was using the scale and the measurements before...but I bulked up a bit this winter
    so I have avoided them both for right now..
    just mad at me today..happens sometimes..
    always better at giving advice to others then listening to it myself
    I am my own worst enemy.

    Nice pyramids.

    How do you feel eating that low carb?

    When I was eating at a deficit, once I hit my protein and fat macros (usually didn't hit the fats and still don't) I didn't have much left over for carbs. I averaged around 100-120g Mon-Fri, and I tended to go higher on the weekends (at the expense of protein). I've been slowly increasing my carbs with my cals and while I'm definately retaining more water, I'm not sure I feel any more energetic than I did before. I guess I function pretty well without them, but I know other people get really lethargic.

    ((hugs))

    This is not as good as it is going to get, promise!! I know how you feel, but I know that how I feel and what are truths are two different things. You are determined and it is a process, doesn't happen overnight....BUT think of all that you have accomplihsed in the past few years and when you started I bet you didn't think you would get this far either...and look at you, in my eyes you are an inspiration and reading journal you are human as well.

    I am looking forward to following your journey
    I would never say this is easy, but it is doable and within your capabilities!! - Nutritional Coach - CocoonFitness

    today was an odd workout day just because I did squats on thursday and will do deads on monday so this is my in between workout..
    leg extensions: 170lbs x 50
    did some tricep work today because I hate that old lady jiggle going on in my armpits
    tricep overhead extensions 37 1/2 pd dumbell
    3 x 8
    skullcrushers 50lbs
    3 x 8
    tricep cable pushdowns 50lbs
    3 x 8
    dips on bench count of 50
    how is the cut coming along? who really knows..last night was my night at my brother's visiting with the kids so we all
    ordered pizza and I had some greek salad with mine. I dont chart my cheat meals. One a week.
    today I have had: two cups coffee, a shake, two spoonfuls of peanut butter, a shake., a glass of iced tea.
    I will eat a chicken breast, brocoli and salad for dinner.
    I am not weak. I can feel the muscles underneath this fat. I know they are there. I know I am strong. just would like to see them ya know?
    wonder how much of this is a mental battle...we do to ourselves. how many of the reasons we 'fail' are because of our emotional eating issues..
    I have been the queen of this in my life..if I was unhappy, I ate junk to drown the pain. If I was lonely, unappreciated, sad, angry..depressed..I ate and then felt horrible for doing so...punished myself by not eating for awhile then it would all begin again..for years and years and years and every year? I got just a little bit fatter.

    This is what I like to call swallowing my pain instead of dealing with it.
    Now? I eat less..yell more.
