"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

So I've been doing the Leanness program going on the 11th week. First 6-8 weeks saw results as predicted. The last 3 weeks though everything seems to be going backwards. My fat loss has almost halted, my muscle seems to cannibalizing itself. I'm losing muscle at a faster rate than I am losing fat. My workouts completely suck. I am going backwards there too. Not able to handle as much weight, amount of reps I can do is getting lower. Nothing has changed except the duration of the program. Diet, intensity, etc all constant. Does this program need to be refreshed and start back higher calories again for a while then gradually reduce again or what? This is massively frustrating. A baby can do more weight than I can right now.

Two words: Eat something.

Whatever calories you add, make 'em some clean protein.

Beyond that, take a few days to a week off from training. If you want to exercise, don't go beyond a nice walk before lunch or dinner.

It is interesting that your progress stopped at around 6 weeks. Some research shows this seems to be a stopping point for advancement in training. My simple suggestion would be to stop training for a week and then alter your workouts in some way to add a different stimulus.

That, combined with (and/or caused by)underfeeding.

Applex,

I'm unfamiliar with the Leanness program. We need more details to really help you.

What workout Frequency were you using in the weeks 8-11 time frame?

How many exercises? Is it the same workout every time or are you switching between A and B workouts?

How many total years have you trained? How many of those have been HIT?

How few calories have you been consuming?

Best Regards,

I agree. More info required to help. Sounds like a change in routine is required in order to maintain progressing. I usually go back to the basics and just focus on getting stronger on them. One workout with DL/BP/Chins and one with Squats/OHP/Row is all you really need! You can vary those exercises in so many ways.

Just my thoughts right now.
