Please accept my apology for not immediately getting back to this thread. I really can't stand it when someone makes a topic and abandons it, so I hate to be in that position. A few things came up in...

Thanks for the response, but why would I do that? There would be no point in such a test. I'm sure that my T levels do drop significantly when I'm at 8% body fat. Simply having confirmation of that...

Body Fat level and normal libido. Do I really have to choose?

I've read most of the articles on the main site that pertain to bodyweight regulation, caloric restriction, et cetera. I understand that there are issues of hormones being downregulated and...

Also, please note, I'm not asking for help losing fat. I can do that just fine.

I'm curious about the mechanisms involved in the phenomenon I'm describing.

No, I'm burning about 500. I typically adjust the times necessary. I'm not going by the machine.

Cardio not doing anything on a cut?

I'm motivated to bring this up because I recently spoke to another person who claimed to experience the same thing.

Over the course of several different cutting cycles, I have noticed that cardio...

As an aside, the other option I was considering was switching to a strength routine for cutting (Madcow/Starr 5x5), because I like very intense low-volume stuff, but I don't know if this would be a...

Thank you, that article really piqued my interest; argh, now I've spent most of the morning reading through studies on this stuff.

I've got a bit of an (very, very) amateur interest in psychology,...

Several fat people I know have said something to the effect of "I don't actually eat that much."

I was pretty taken aback by that. The fact that an obese person could say that indicates to me that...

Thanks! That makes good sense. It would seem that working legs 2x per week causes more glycogen / water storage than 1x per week. Especially since deadlifts and squats hit the legs a bit...

Two weeks ago, I started doing the routine as written. That is, I added another lower body day. I figured that I've got a lot of time anyway, so it'd be better if more of the extra calories went to...

Thank you for your advice.

I'm not completely sure if I need that much - my bodyweight tends to jump by 1-3 lbs in either direction every morning. So, gaining at 3,500/rest/4,000/workout is based on...

Thank you for the reply. Sorry for the lateness of my response (holidays in the US and all of that).

I'm pretty sure I am. My weight fluctuates by +/- 1-3 lbs every day, even though I weigh myself...

Thanks for the advice. This does sound sensible.

I'm still going to try to make progress on the lower body, but it will be a lesser goal.



Thanks, just needed to hear that. It felt odd to leave...
