    Hello, starting a new log FAT - Fat Adapted Training (see old beginner log here: Fat Adapted Training - Journey To 1000 lb).

    My training is pretty simple, a 2 day split as seen below:

    Day 1:
    Squats 2 sets RPT
    Press 2 sets RPT
    Core work

    Day 2:
    Deadlift 1 set
    Chins 2 sets RPT
    Core work

    I usually train Mon/Thu, or Tue/Fri depending on availability of work. I started out with high reps (15+) and am slowly coming down to 5s and eventually go toward triples, doubles and singles. My diet is mostly ketogenic/carnivorous with the odd cheats here and there before winter hits hard. I practice ice baths for recovery, and I only eat 1-2 meals a day (Intermittent Fasting).

    Goals are to get as strong as possible at my current bodyweight of around 155 lbs.

    You are a strong lad. Keep it up.

    Why not bench?

    Thanks carson. I have read about the dangers of bench long term, and it also just doesn't seem like a good idea. My instincts tell me not to bother with it.

    I love lifting, but my main focus is on health and longevity, and I know if I want to do this long-term, I need to take great care of my joints and connective tissues... Lifting barbells is not natural for humans, but my compromise is natural movement like squat, deadlift and presses. To keep my inflammation low, I have my body burning fat primarily (less ROS generation in mitochondria), and use cold therapy for recovery. As for diet, I try to consume lots of gelatin from bone broths, and eat organ meats to get the nutrients I need for collagen synthesis. I do things very differently than most people.

    You are certainly correct about the dangers of bench. However, what are the long term dangers of doing the deadlift?

    You seem to know more about burning fat and less ROS generation in mitochondria than most people. What is your background, if I may ask? What is your vocation?
