  • Zach vs. Knifegill, body fat race!

    Let's keep it simple. Starting photo, plan of action (food, workouts), and occasional updates.


    Starting photo:



    Plan of eating: steak and eggs, warrior style, about 1600 calories a day, duration approx 1 month from now, or whenever I think my abs are popping enough to WIN!!! Bwah hah! This is a RACE after all. :P

    Workouts: Something every day. Greasing the groove, no strict plans, just go to exhaustion for a few days in a row and then rest for a day or two in between. Today I bolted up 7 flights of stairs, did 10 slo-mo L-sit overhand pull-ups, rested 2 min, did 7 more, ran down the stairs, did 15 dips, climbed down the ladder into the stairwell, clocked into the time clock and hit the gym for two minutes of curling 40 pound free weights, slow and steady, got about 30 reps out, with rests between.


    Start date: 9-4-13

    Plan of eating: sugar! Hummingbird style? Macros are something like 60c/30p/10f. Lots of liquid sugar! Staples are orange juice, milk, fruit, the white stuff, coffee, random animal proteinz, gelatin. Calories around 2500-3000 most days, no fasting, nothing primal approved about it. :P

    Exercise: similar to knife, lots and lots of random shit. Mostly calisthenics throughout the day, will try to get to the gym for heavy lifting maybe twice a week. No cardio!

    Will update more when im not on phone.

      Yay!! Revival of the steak and eggs! I am commenting just so this is easier to follow on my phone app.

        Except in *most* races there is a clearly defined endpoint, not just when one competitor calls END at the moment he thinks he is winning.

        Oh Knifegill you are quite the character

          Surely it has to be decided by an arm wrestle
          Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

          Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

            really, an arm wrestle is like the manliest option
            beautiful
            yeah you are

            Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
            lol

              I am actually doing that from now on at work. A cardio queen here thinks he's super fit and healthy because he logs miles on the treadmill, and he tries to give out advice. Repeatedly. Next time, it's show time - arm-wrestler winner is right. lol.

              -Yes, of course, one month from now - not when I happen to be lean and want to claim a win, ha ha.

              Just got in some light, short runs around the building to get stuff done, and popped into the gym to do 4 quick 50-pound dumbbell curls + overhead presses. Is it 100 pound if you're holding 2? Because that's what I do - 50 pounds per hand...

              Having a cup or two of green tea, might try to switch my coffee out for green tea if it will carry molasses well. I recall being leaner when I dropped coffee once, maybe bloat as mentioned in that other thread. And I know green tea is DEFINITELY anti-inflammatory, and does cause me to dump water weight. Another tool in the toolbox.

                Hello Knifegill,

                Try this: “BarStarzz: Increase your Pull-Ups” - BarStarzz
                Should be quite efficient.

                  I was watching that barstarzz and it's just too complicated, seems like a drag. I can incorporate some of those principles, though. I do like the 1 rep, wait, 2 rep, wait progression. Might just throw that in there.

                    It's not complicated after you try it once, and you get results in 3-4 weeks!

                      Tried my first deadlifts. Got to 330, and there weren't any more weights in the gym to try...

                            I remember. I was very impressed with your, ahem, set up.
