Today, I tried a full-body workout fasted. I have to say I was surprised. My energy levels were good, the workout was successful, and I got some cardio as well.
I worked Squats, Incline Press, Dumbbell Shoulder Press, Wide Grip Lat Pulldowns, Back Extensions, Calve Presses, Dumbbell Curls, Lying Tricep Extensions, Crunches, Barbell wrist curls, and EZ Bar Reverse Curls. I hit each exercise with 3 sets of 5 repetitions. This was all followed by a 20-minute Cardio routine on the treadmill using the Hill program at level 5.
Why fasted exercise? I watched a video yesterday that discussed the use of Yohimbine. The video suggested that Yohimbine’s effects on weight loss were most effective when working out in a fasted state. So, I ordered a Yohimbine supplement (arriving Thursday) and will give this a whirl.
Experimentation with different supplements and exercise routines is all apart of using the gym as a personal laboratory. Each of us is individual. Each of us will respond to different workout routines and different supplement regimens. The key is to keep trying so that we find the processes that contribute to weight loss and of course weight gain.
How do we find the magic combination? By experimenting, reading, researching, and sticking with what works for us and dropping the rest. Trust me, there is no “silver bullet” for attaining the body you want. You have to work hard, continually refine what you are doing, listen, watch, and read what others are saying and testing it out for yourself. Some of the things that are out there will be effective for you. Others will not.
I’m not going to name specifics. What I have found is that each of us is unique. We all react to supplements differently, diets differently, workout routines differently. Keep adjusting, keep evaluating, keep changing until you see the results you want to see. If you remain persistent, you’ll find the supplements that work, the routines that work, and the diet or eating routine that works for you.
Thanks for reading!
See you tomorrow…
