Yaaay . I'm not losing weight any more unfortunately because i'm still 220 something but I really don't want to lose my muscles. I absolutely dread cutting because when I'm low on carbs, the crazy really comes out of me and I feel super weird. So basically I'm doing as much cardio as I can and lifting occasionally. Guys, I swear to God meditation makes you stronger physically. I suspect it has something to do with improving muscle recruitment - making your nerves respond much better than average. I hadn't worked out my chest for a while due to a shoulder injury but I was feeling stronger than usual. Keep in mind I was used to barely doing 135 (1 plate). Anyway, I concentrated on my lower dan tien for a minute and felt the pulsing then moved the energy to my arms. Dude it was a bit scary but the adrenaline kicked in and I managed to do 2 plates. Yeehaw. The fucked up thing is that immediately after that it felt like the energy reserve I had in my ldt shrank by a lot and I was back to barely doing 135 again. Maybe I should just store this energy in my body in case of an emergency when I need it desperately. I do know that in time qigong masters are able to store enough so that in a crisis they can flip a car. Anyway, just posting my progress. How are you guys getting along?
