28 Oct Danny Vega – Hypertrophy Experiment UPDATE
Training has been a little off…last week I was only able to get 2 lifts in. Balancing my online coaching, adding content to our KetovangelistUnlimited.com membership site, podcasting, our new YouTube, and my day job has been a challenge. But like always, I find a way to make it work. It’s all about organizing my time so that I can make the most out of every minute. This week was Deload week and I was happy to cut volume and just focus on blood flow and feeling good at the end of my training.
If you’ve been following my hypertrophy experiment, you know that I’m not a fan of this first high protein month. Consuming 260g of protein a day has made my ketones plummet, my blood sugar rise and I feel more inflammation and less recovery. I also don’t feel as “on point” mentally. Luckily, tomorrow is the last day of this and Monday I’ll be back down to 135g of protein a day but 305g of fat. Carbs will remain at about 5-10–mostly from eggs, pork etc.
Anyone who thinks you can’t add muscle and improve body comp drastically with keto is extremely ignorant. I still find it comical when people speak authoritatively on things they know nothing about. If you’re one of these people, you are a bad person and you should feel really bad. Jk sort of.
I will be posting a YouTube video with an update on the experiment and my observations so far in my next log. And if you’re interested in my training, next week my log will be business as usual. I’m really excited because today is the FIRST TIME I get to train arms on a Saturday this month. I haven’t been able to do that for several weeks straight.
Catch you next week.
