    I’m a bit the same.
    I run 3x week and skate 4x week so can’t really afford to be completely thrashing my legs in the gym.
    Have one day where I hit a heavy single, some light accessories and GTFO. The second day has (substantially) more volume but it’s all sub-maximal.

    This a totally individual thing, I’m 5’10 and 87kg my calorie intake is different to a 6’6 135kg monster or. 5’5 60kg jockey. Even people of similar sizes still have different BMRs

    Some people who lift weights don’t even want to cut. But it takes a lot of discipline to get down to low percentages of body fat.

    Right, will be different for everyone.

    But just looking at how others go, are they able to drop below 2k for reasonable periods.

    Are you hitting the whole lot in the one session?

    I hit hams and quads on thursday, and do calves on friday, along with forearms, traps and abs (basically stuff I can't/won't fit in elsewhere)

    I'm not an instagram model, so glutes need to work themselves in with quads and hammies.

    I tend to do everything, yes.
    Squat variation (long femurs so second day I've been doing goblet squats, higher reps. First day is back squats, will switch to front squats shortly).
    Single leg work (walking lunges at the moment)
    Calves (no seated calf machine so single leg raises on a platform superset with squatting calf raises which targets the soleus well)
    Hamstring exercise.
    Sit up bench (get a bit of upper quad in there as well as lower ab).

    Often start with a 1km warm up jog and a couple of kms run as well depending on how long the session has been.
    Higher weight lower reps first day, lower weight higher reps the second day.

    Day after the second day I'll deadlift on the day after (Friday) trying a wider stance recently, getting close to sumo style.

    Not for me - I calculated my maintenance at ~3,100 a few times now on different websites, I'd struggle at 2,000 or below on non-training days let alone any day I train/cycle.

    Well that's pretty conclusive. Other reasons include:

    1) squatting for toiletry purposes
    2) squatting instead of sitting on dusty and dirty land

    Also Vonn did you note Christines initials? CX?

    To try and stay consistent I wouldn’t go below 1800. Maintenance would be around 2800. That’s based on my size and metabolism.

    I've done 1500 for weeks at a time, everything was logged so I can show you what it looked like if you're interested

    Not after the specifics just the total calorie numbers. Don’t know if I could get to 1500.

    I've been on 1500 cal for the last six weeks. I'm a short arse though.

    Geez that's low.

    I'm running at about 2200-2500 at the moment, and burning around 3000 (according to my fitbit). I could stay under 2000 if I wanted to, but under 1500 would require a total rework of what I currently eat.

    Not keen on running at a huge deficit for a prolonged period anyway. I suspect my body would accommodate and I'd feel crap a lot of the time.

    For memory you are over a 100kg?
    2200 would be low. Without being an expert someone around 70kg on 1500 calories would equate to more calories than you

    LBM is the real driver behind metabolism though, not overall body weight

    So i've been having blood tests done lately. Seeing a specialist in Jan, apparently my Creatinine levels are very high and its affecting my kidneys. After doing some research it could come down to a high protein diet or too much creatine.

    Whats interesting though is I only take one protein shake only on the days i weight train (6 days per week), its a MAX's Bulk one so its a bit higher, and i run a pretty standard protein diet for my muscle mass level (around about 160-180) grams protein per day.
    With a creatine supp i take one normal scoop on the days i train, then when a tub is finished will have around a month off before going again.

    Wonder how proper bodybuilders go who would potentially take more than me, or your average nuffy who takes 2-3 shakes per day because they feel thats the way to get big.

    Has anyone read Never Gymless by Ross Enamait? Haven't seen a bad word about it, seems like a good investment until I can afford a gym membership. I nearly signed up for Snap's 'pay nothing till 2019' deal but have to redo the budget after starting a new job.

    :$ That's what the internet told me to do to get swole.

    Do you have to dump the supps/stop lifting until you see the specialist?
