Can somebody here help me out a lil as im confused as to what to what would give me better results.

I've been consistently losing 2.5p every week but the problem is I'm concerned that i may being doing it the wrong way (from what i read online). I lift 3 days a week and do HITS after my lift (mon//wed//fri//). I also do HITS with core on tues//thurs//sun. Main thing here as well is that I'm on a low carb diet and i no longer eat any source of bread, pasta rice (mostly carbs would be from my veggies with a lot of protein).

I was on bodybuilding.com and one guy was saying that if i do fasted training and/or low carb, i shouldn't be doing HIT's but i should start on a walking program.

Im reluctant to change as im getting results right now, what do you guys think?

Thanks in advance.

I am assuming that that guy was recommending a walking program in hopes of an easier maintenance of muscle mass. Though, you haven't mentioned it being a problem, at that intensity it is a lot easier to lose mass especially at the frequency you are training at and at a carb deficiency. If it doesn't seem to be a problem then keep up with it. 2.5lbs a week is great, good job man.

If your focus is on weight-loss. Keep your focus on that.

Hit your ideal goal weight. Then focus on strength or whatever you plan on next.

Can't have everything.

Results in constant dis-comfort, cracking/grinding/locking. It's come to the point where i refuse to do any upperbody excersies, all i do now is cardio, and legs
I've gone to see the doctor, X-Ray's say nothing. He says to "excersise full range of motion/shoulder rehab excersises, could be joint/lingament" problem. I take glucosamine already. Can Anyone else recommend anything?
Err, tried benching again today, no-go. Anyone got a solution? I'm thinking of asking the doctor to refer me to a sports-med/physio.

Reading your posts, sounds like you and I are in the same boat. I'm also losing about 1-2 pounds per week, pretty much lifting and hiit same amount as you. I was also second guessing myself a few weeks ago because my lifts were not gaining that much, but we can't forget our main goal: losing body fat. Once we reach our desired body weight/fat, we can change our diet and bulk up/ lift more.. Atleast IMO.


How much weight you lose so far??

No. The bar should most definitely not bounce off your thighs. Close to your body yes, but not touching it.

I was at 240, hit 205 which i was stuck on for a while (lost my car and didnt do any sort of exercise anymore and went back up to 215). Since i started the HIT with my lifting on july 1st, i hit 194 on my last weigh in (sept 1st).

Im about 5"6-5"7 so i think i want to hit 170. How bout yourself?

Lol ya, I steered clear from cameras back then. I have some pix, but no real "before" pics.

Why are "before" pictures so much easier than "after" lol
