    I've been walking 7-10 Miles a day 4/5 times a week, and usually do dumbell weights 3/4 nights a week, biceps, shoulders, triceps, deadlifts etc, and I've still managed to put on a fair few pounds lol. The swally sat and Sunday, and the subsequent takeaways absolutely * my diet. Really need a weekend aff it... but no this weekend, weather's to be good.

    Been back in the gym the past couple of days, my shoulder is still * (no pain) just limited range of motion then pain if I do something daft.

    But walking around now at the highest bodyfat percentage than I have done in a long time do can't hack it.

    Have just been feeling my way see what I can get away with, tried some flat dumbbell bench presses with just a 7kg and nope shoulder was aching and starting to go.

    Just been hammering arms and legs and some back.

    Going to lose access to the gym in a few days so plan on hammering the cardio soon.

    Well that's me done a month of serious tracking of calories and macros. It was much easier than I thought it would be and I'm feeling great.

    Screenshot_20200611_093701.jpg

    Got a right buzz for it now and can't wait to keep cracking on. Been weight training 3 to 4 x per week and long walks 3 x per week.

    What's great too, is that amongst all this I've had Chineses, a chippy, pizza, few beers, and ate chocolate every day too. It really is as simple as being in a calorie deficit to shift the fat, whilst getting plenty protein in every day. Apologies for the self indulgence but firing it in here gives me accountability, and I'm pretty * chuffed.

    You need to do facepulls or resistance band pull-aparts.

    Facepulls:

    Resistance band pull aparts:

    It sounds like a problem with your rotator cuff. Focus on external rotation movements for your shoulder instead of internal. Bench incline might take some pressure off your shoulder, as well as doing floor presses instead of traditional bench. Make sure you're not doing things like chest flies as they put your shoulder in a dodgy position.

    Got myself a Weight Bench, 30kg Dumbell set and resistance bands - going to set it up in the garage over the weekend.

    If I was planning on doing 3-5km jog and Weights in the same day, which would be better for fat loss: Fasted Jog in the morning, weights in the evening or Fasted weight training, Jog in the evening?

    Fasted jog in the morning, as you're low on carbs and using your fat resources as a energy source. It would also be more effective for your weight training to fuel your workout with carbs.

    Definitely don't do fasted weight training. As Andy says you will need energy for that.

    The fasted cardio for fat loss for me, is a myth. I've seen competitors swear by it of course. But at the end of the day if you put more calories in your gub throughout the week than you expend you won't lose fat.

    A calorie is a calorie any time of the day.

    If you are to do LISS run for fat loss the theory is you need to get to about 45 mins at least before your fat stores kick in for energy use. Loads of debates about it, best thing to do is whatever you are comfortable with and can stick to.

    It's not intentionally fasted, just that I start work at 8 so it would be just as I woke up.

    But aye, I've done the gym in the morning before and didn't like it at all when doing weights.

    Your app there with the percentages, is that a body fat % scale that connects to your phone?

    No mate, that's my own spreadsheet.

    I take an average between two methods of body fat measurement (I don't have calipers or a machine)

    1) https://www.calculator.net/body-fat-calculator.html

    2)
    I have a spreadsheet to do the calculations for the second method, then I just average the two out :50:

    I actually have found fasted cardio pretty effective but only if done sparingly.

    I find when I start the day off with a fasted 5k, I’ll eat my normal breakfast (Porridge, banana, peanut butter and flax seed) afterwards to recover and then I won’t be hungry until later in the day. So I’ll get the fat burning benefits and keep my calories down for that day.

    Whereas, if I ate my breakfast first thing, waited a while and then went on the run I’d be likely to want to eat a big lunch afterwards to recover as I’ll be starving at that stage.

    I wouldn’t do it that regularly though, maybe on the week I’m planning a long run for time and don’t want to over exert myself in the lead up. If you’re looking to run for a time and get PB’s etc then you’re going to need fuel in you, and ultimately that’s how you’ll get fitter and faster.

    Day 1 of getting serious (been here before :84:) scrambled eggs for breakfast, chicken and rice for lunch and stew with broccoli for tea.

    Set up the bench and done some weights at lunchtime today.

    Weighed myself on the smart scale this morning and got the tracker app with body fat %. Just need to stick with it and only eat * as a treat at the weekend.

    Ran 25k today, longest run yet.

    Legs were still sore from playing five a side on Thursday and Sat (first time playing football in months so obviously took its toll) and the heat was a * killer so I did it at quite a relaxed pace. Was just glad to get it finished. Hopefully do a 27k at some point next week.
