First fasting day of this year..

Post by Guitar_maniac on Tue Feb 12, 2013 3:08 am

aaaaaaand... it's horrible! Got 11 hours to go still. I wouldn't have a problem if i weren't at school, people asking to spend the lunch break with them at Rita's place (great food!), people eating sandwiches. School is almost over, and afterwards hitting the gym for some deadlifts. But this is still one form of hell.

Deadlifts on an empty stomach are brutal. Nothing reminds you how hungry you are more than heavy deadlifts and squats. Except maybe burpees. And pullups. And dips, and.... yeah the list goes on doesn't it...

Riding a bike uphill is very brutal on an empty stomach.

I actually lose my hunger when doing something heavy. It was a slooow day at school today, we were short on wood again, so it was mainly sitting around. I was hungry, really hungry though we were just cleaning around. On my way home, i decided to do a bit cardio and started biking faster and trying to keep it up for some time, and my hunger went away. Don't have any uphills on the routes that i use, have to try that at summer when i'm bicycling a lot more anyway.

Sitting at home atm, soon starting to play guitar a bit before going to the gym with friends, Guess the hunger sits in again soon.

The key to fasting being something rather easy as opposed to constantly thinking about it is keeping yourself busy. I fast for ~24 hours once a week, and I'm either at school, studying, or playing badminton or something, so it's not on my mind. If you just sit around and do nothing though, it's going to be a lot more brutal.

Also, in regards to working out, I find that I have MORE energy when I work out on an empty stomach, irrespective of the main exercise/theme of the day (DL's, B Squats, lower body, upper body, etc.). If you're going to keep it up on a regular basis (advised) it gets easier and easier each passing week. I don't get hungry at all on Thursdays. It's just a matter of 'retraining' your hormones and altering their rhythmic release, which is essentially what fasting does.

It is a mind over body thing. The stronger the mind, the stronger the body.

If you let the body rule, you will never be as strong as you can be.

Cold Showers! I can't do them :D Once in elemantary school we were at a local public swimming pool, and there was a cold shower next to the pool. I took of course since all the other guys took it too! Couldn't back down, but not my thing :D Maybe i should take them often to get more discipline, but still... :D

I don't know what it's called in english but in the winter you cut a hole on a ice on the lake, and jump in, after you have been in the sauna! You just run buttnaked from the sauna and jump in the freezing water. It's this finnish craze that my gf and her family absolutely loves, and most other finns too. I haven't tried it.. :D

You got me with that one, Dave! :P
At least when you're fasting, it doesn't hit you all at once!
