I work to failure on most sets and change between heavy lifting and lighter workouts throughout the week
You have to decide that you want it more than anything else. More than you want junk food, more than you want to actually enjoy every meal you eat, more than you want to drink, more than you want to rest, more than you want anything. I try to stay enthusiastic about working out (which comes easy once you've made that first decision). You're not going to do something you don't enjoy right? besides go to work that is... The best way to start to enjoying and looking forward to your workouts is to make a little progress, and get hungry for more. I've learned that tightening up your nutrition and keeping patient with your training are the keys to that. When things get stagnant a new nutrition plan, or workout can get me excited about hitting the gym, or even a new t-shirt, supplement, running shoes, hat, water bottle, socks... you get the point. Want it, and be excited about it.

Tring out IF. Training will be performed in fasted state with the exception of a pre-WO drink, and 10 grams BCAA drink. I will be eating 3 meals a day starting at 1 pm and ending by 9 pm to allow for 16 hour fast each day. Meals occur post workout totalling ~220 grams protein, ~100 or less grams of fat, and carbs totaling ~140 grams taken in mostly post workout. As weeks go by I'll be monitoring weight gain, and measurements and changing macro percentages and adding/subtracting calories as necessary to keep up with ~1 lb. or less gain per week in order to ensure lean body mass gains and minimize fat gain. I"ll probably be throwing in some lower carb days also to keep fat down, and 1 or 2 planned cheat meals per week post workout.

After some research on Intermittent Fasting I decided that I would try it out for a while and see how my body reacts. After a couple of weeks of struggling with my previous nutrition program I started looking around for a new solution. One thing I have always struggled with in traditional bodybuilding nutrition protocols is getting up and eating breakfast almost immediately. As a commuter I already have to get up a little earlier than the average person to make it to work on time, and having to... Go to BodyBlog
