I would say it is almost impossible to exactly mantain body size. I would recommend to alternate low workout periods with higher ones (say, 1 month of aerobic and low intensity and low volume weight training and 1 month of higher weight training). In this way, you would lose a bit of muscle while reducing body fat and re-taking previous muscular condition at ...

Battle ropes can be made from various materials—the most common being Nylon, polypropylene, and polyester (Dacron, Terylene, ...) And their appropriate cleaning is therefore dependent on the specific rope. Generally speaking, however, ropes can be washed in cold or warm water with a mild detergent. They may be soaked, but should not be soaked for extended ...

Will I maintain my sets x reps? If you achieve AxB sets x reps on an exercise and keep at the same reps and weight but do it every week you will get good at doing that exercise. It will become easier and your body will adapt. You won't gain any significant muscle but you will most likely maintain your current physique (based on your regime). How can I reduce ...

I don't know what bodily functions are affected by a decreased energy expenditure but I have found two studies on the subject which I think you might find interesting. The first is on 3 days of fasting, conducted at Department of Medicine, University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry, NY. Six men fasted for three days and as a result their ...

48 hour fasts or prolonged fasting is awesome when it comes to increasing autophagy, increasing HGH, entering ketosis, curbing your hunger, refreshing your body and mind, spiritually, etc. If your goal is to maintain body composition then the 48H fasts will allow you some wiggle room with your calories. Post 48H fast, definitely refeed. If you're low-carb ...

Congratulations on what sounds like a successful integration of healthy lifestyle activities. If you're talking about maintaining your current physique, then no you don't need to do anything different. You'll still be keeping an eye on what you eat and participating in your normal workout, but your body will adapt to these workouts and diet as you've seen ...

If you're not training, no matter how well you eat... Your muscle is going to shrink. Without training it's impossible to maintain/build muscle mass because it's the process of breaking down the muscle tissue and rebuilding it. How fast will I lose muscles if I stop working out? This depends on the person, everyone is different. High intensity training ...

Your TDEE honestly sounds like it should be higher (2200 from what you’ve described is a cut). Also, stick with the same amount of calories each day, cutting every other day is silly. As far as intermittent fasting goes, if it works for you that’s fine, keep doing it. If it doesn’t, then don’t do it. It doesn’t seem to make any difference from the research ...

Keep moving without straining yourself. You're not going to want to do anything that's going to raise your blood pressure, but there's a lot of movement that can be done without exerting yourself that will nonetheless keep your body in the spirit of movement. Even doing something so simple as taking a long walk every night around your neighborhood, or doing ...

To achieve maintenance in place of gains, you can train at the same intensity, but reduce the volume to around 30 - 40%.

If you still like working out 4 times a week, try doing same compound lifts 2 times a week, and another 2 days spend doing something completely different. This way you space out your lifts, so that it takes 2 weeks to complete the cycle instead of one, and you have 2 more days to do something completely different, new, unique. Heavy lifts will let you "...

Here are my 50 cents. I would say, by reading your question, that it is convenient to remember that the 3 following things are totally different: When on a diet, mathematically absorbing less minerals, vitamins and other essential oils Being on a reduced activity (not moving = consumming less energy, != lowering your metabolism) Having an actual drop of ...
