    @ryan I do have some 1.25 # plates I can use if needed.

    I've tried lifting fasted before and boy that was rough. Even on just an ordinary caloric deficit or very low carbs I often want to go take a nap after a few sets.

    I do incorporate some carb cycling in my diet already, but I'm wondering if I should cycle calories, or just eat at a deficit every day? I could go above maintenance on lifting days but then go much lower on rest days.

      Keep them handy and seriously, try avoiding any carbs for several hours after weight training. Google 'carbless post workout' you'll see it on a lot of bodybuilding forums but it's very much not bro-science but real science. It's thoroughly discussed on a private forum but this one Carbless post workout info by conwict has a brief write up on it with the logic.

        After doing some reading am going to experiment with some alternate day fasting (sort of Leangains-ish) and see if that helps. I'll eat a surplus on lifting days but then a large deficit on rest days. If I can make slow but steady strength increases while losing fat I'll be quite happy with that.

        SS and the constant eating in a caloric surplus has burnt me out anyway, so I'm looking forward to a change.
