Intermittent Fasting + Keto + Weight Loss!
 
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

try a better workout schedule before playing with IF.

How about just a better workout?

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.
