  • Strength while on diet.......

    I worked chest today and felt like a 15 year old school girl......

    I know most days I only feel like an 18 year old school girl, but for me thats good.......

    Anyway.... I was very weak today.... Could be the lack of sleep lately, but I am thinking it's the diet and low carbs..... I am on Tren and Prop....... Oh and ECA and T3.....

    So...... What do you guys do to keep your strength up????

    Think maybe I should add some winny in a couple weeks????

    I actualy got stronger for the first 8 weeks when i was dieting, due to the fact that i ate maintenance level calories for my bodyweight and size (bout 2500cal), but the fat burners in there did their work. I dropped from around 12%-6-7% in 8 weeks, got stronger, and bigger. You gotta STAY HEAVY, 6-8 reps, and a lot of big compound lifts. When i paused at 6% i had to adjust my diet and program, so i started droppin strength, but not a lot. Im no expert, but thats how it went for me.

      My strength is Ok-But my power is shit. Meaning-I can still get the same on curls or some isolation movement. But my max deads has dropped over a 100 lbs. Squats and rows too.

          Ive been "dieting" about 3 weeks and Ive lost some fat but my strength has increased and my workouts have actually been pretty good. Using a thermo, test, and tren.

          Might be lack of sleep..hasnt your schedule changed a bit with taking on a weekend job? Maybe that has something to do with it? (I have no scientific evidence here, just throwing something out there---something thats different/changed over the past few weeks)

            It will drop at some point, just try to keep intensity high and don't worry about the weight.

                Ideally, the strength should not drop at all until about the 4 week out mark before a show. I use strength as one of the main guides in whether my clients are dropping weight too quickly. If you are dropping weight but your strength is hanging the same, you should have little to nothing to worry about in the way of losing muscle mass.

                Just my opinion....

                  Thats a pretty good way of looking at it..... One problem tho.... Strength can go down purely just because your weight has..... Weight distribution is a factor in strength..... So even losing fat could cause strength loss I think....

                  I may bring my carbs and total cals up a touch tho.... just to be sure...

                    I like that gauge!!!! Have to admit I never thought of it that way.

                      Yes, and even losing water weight can change leverage so that you lose strength, also. However, I have used this "guage" for a long time and it holds true 95% of the time if the diet is where it should be and the calories are not being cut drastically, but evenly and controlled.

                        My strength suffers immediatlely during dieting. My energy levels lower and strength decreases when My carbs and fat are lowered. Always have. Give me a 20oz ribeye and a half pound of pasta and Im like brand new....hell my sexual "prowess" is even better with plenty of carbs...(albeit Im doing very well at the moment, Hah, cut off the cheapshots!)

                        Maybe its mental... but then , isnt everything?
