    Yes counting calories. I was being a tad facetious and I disagree cardio is the most effective way to build a deficit.

    A mixture of HIIT and low intensity ie steep incline walk.

    Lifting weights doesn’t burn much calories at all but as your muscles grow so does your TDEE

    Edit: of course it all doesn’t matter if you aren’t in a deficit

    Used to get the chicken * from it but sometimes you would get them and they would smell a bit funky.

    For the sake of a couple of quid more I can get 5kg of chicken breast from a local farms butcher shop.

    Tried it again this morning, * me man why is it so hard going?

    Was 10 mins in and felt like I couldn’t breathe!

    My cardio has really taken a nose dive over the last year, I used to park up the truck at nights and blast through 10ks 3-4 times a week no bother.

    Been smashing the gym 4-5 times a week for the last few weeks and been eating clean also. Majorly needed after drinking beer and eating whatever I wanted for 3 weeks on holiday.

    Finally got a shot of one of those bod analysis machines in the gym. Metabolic rate if 23, not bad for a 30yr old who hates cardio lol

    My excuse, at least what I tell myself, is that as I’m such a unit it’s hard going shifting my 100kg frame up and down over and over again :giggle1: and I’m still sore from leg day

    I choose to ignore the fact I’m just not very fit

    Mon the weights!
