I am looking forward to experiment Fasting as part of my life style. I started keto beginning of this year, I could see results with fatty foods, I am consuming daily. Fasting will supposely give me the edge :)
Monday Chest / abs
Tuesday Back / cardio
Wednesday Fasting
Thursday Shoulder / Trap / cardio
Friday Legs / abs
Saturday Fasting
Sunday Fasting / cardio

During my Rest day's, I'll be Fasting from 10:00 Pm day before to 2:00 pm and have window of 2:00 pm till 10:00 pm to intake my daily maintence's and return back to my normal keto diet as nothing has happen day before.

My concerns:
Is this safe?
Has anyone else tried this diet & what your experience?
Should I still do carb up normally every 2 weeks?:eek:
Body stats:
5'8 161 lbs age 21

you're essentially following a typical bodybuilding program right now. if your goal is strength, i would advise against it. if your goal is to lean out, i would advise against it. if your goal is to appear inconspicuous in the gym by doing bicep curls instead of handstand pushups, then that is the only time i'd advise such a program.

the problem with your regimen right now is that you're isolating bodyparts. our bodies weren't designed to be used in this way. rather than trying to isolate muscles, try to perform skills.

think of it this way:
-a pullup is a motion from which you hang from a bar, and starting from a full arm extension, you bring your chin/chest to the bar.
-a pullup is not a method to burn your lats.

a bicep curl is not a complicated skill, if it's really a skill at all. many people can figure out how to pull their hand towards their shoulder with some added resistance in a very short amount of time. it would probably take that person a hell of a lot longer to figure out how to do an iron cross or a snatch landing in rock a rock bottom squat.

here's the PEMDAS (order of operations):
1. eat real, good quality food
2. get good sleep (this could be #1)
3. reduce life stress
4. keep your joints fluid and flexible
5. condition your body

At 5'8" and 161 lb's what exactly is your goal here? What do you want to get out of training?

I'm not anti-split training but it has to be for a specific reason and you should already have a good base prior to switching to a split method.

My goal is lowering my bf% down to 7-10% range ( first time cutting )

and I love to try new dieting methods

Son,
Yes, you can take supplements like those. You'll waste your money, but you an take them.

Hey guys, first time to the forum,

Son - you seriously need to get a better sense of what this site is all about. Everything that's been posted so far, is right on the money, but I'm just getting a sense that you're confused. Here's what I'd do:

1 - Figure out your one true goal (fat loss, mass gain, strength, athletic fitness, general health/maintenance)
2 - Take the time out to research your goal. Read forums, buy a book, go to a seminar(if you can). These are just some suggestions, but really research before jumping right in. Or just try to find a trainer or friend who know's what he or she is doing.
3 - Stop following diets and learn to eat healthy, based on your instincts. I love IF, but honestly the best approach is to follow a few simple rules (eat real, whol food, stay away from fast food, drink water, etc.), and take it from there. Dieting becomes easier when you think of it as a long-term lifestyle change as opposed to something you need to do to get lean or get big. Make it permanent.

Hope this helps
