    I don't do HIIT at the moment, but since I started doing serious IF my boyfriend is telling me I'm starting to look cut in the shoulders, back, and arms. I can find my abs, and if this keeps up they will be clearly visible pretty soon.

    He's starting to ask me about exercises for hypertrophy.

    IF, seriously.

    Can you add a weekly sprint WOD once a week? How often do you IF?

    Are you responding to me?

    I might do sprints when summer comes, or something more like calisthenics. At the moment I am concentrating on flexibility and upper body strength.

    My normal eating pattern is 19/5.

    I lift weights to gain lean muscle mass everyday.

    I do HIIT on a treadmill - Run at 12MPH for 45 seconds and rest for 2 minutes with about 8 reps.

    I do IF's 2 to 3 times a week. But am scared of loosing muscle mass.

    I lift weights on the weekends in fasted state.

    Just seems to me that my waist fat lost has plateaued.

    By I do see more of the abs when in fast state or when I flex.

    I do not believe in spot reduction of body fat.

    I do no abs workout but focus on compound movements like dead lifts, squats.

    Thank you folks.

    God Bless

    Maybe a small piece of the puzzle, but how often and in what quantity do you snack on nuts?

    also wondering if there is something in the protein supplement to which you might be sensitive?
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

    Sprints will help with the belly fat. Also, are you doing lower body work as well?

    45 seconds is too long for all out sprint. Shorten the time pd to 3o seconds and go all out. Also, everyday is too much. You need to recover longer so you can put more effort into your work. It sounds like you are over training.

    You won't lose muscles mass from IF if you eat heavily during your eating block. Great that you don't believe in spot reduction as it doens't work. What really works more high intensity (CrossFit-like) metabolic workouts. Let me know if you want to try some and I'll program some really metabolic stimulating WODs for you.

    No much nuts but a hand full maybe twice a day.

    I only do HIIT training 3 times.

    Is there any HIIT metabolic body building training you would recommend?

    Thank You All

    How do you IF?
    I would cut the nuts.
    Also, do you eat dairy? It could be that you have some kind of food intolerance
    that results in bloating.
