Hey new here. This app has been very helpful as a type 1 diabetic and learning my calorie maintenance to achieve my mini goals. Gained about 19lb of mass this year while keeping body fat in check.

    Very impressive. What was your workout routine & nutrition over the last year to help increase in size?

    Typically I train 3 on 1 off 6 days a week with progressive overload and varied intensity techniques. Every month I’ll have a deload week based on my recovery. I do a typical bro split because I like high volume. My current split is legs/abs, chest, back, shoulders/arms, repeat. However I’ve tried everything from Layne Norton’s PHAT program to DC training.
    Right now I’m taking a 2 week diet break since I feel run down from cutting and I’m not competing or anything.
    if anyone has questions on diabetes, diet, training HMU since we have to do things a little different. I love to discuss things I’ve learned over the years for optimal blood sugar control while building muscle or shredding.

    Brilliant! I’m a type 2 diet and exercise controlled so what I have to do isn’t nearly as complicated, but I imagine it must be quite tricky dealing with glucose fluctuations and that volume of heavy lifting! Would love to hear how you handle it. Do you get lows very often?

    I do get lows just about every other day in the 50’s or so after training then doing cardio. I prefer to steer towards lows vs high since high BG is more catabolic for muscle tissue. Lately I’ve been eating a few glucose tabs as I walk in to the gym and adjusting my long acting insulin (trujeo) by dropping 1iu if I’m low 2 day’s in a row. I use insulin pens troujeo long acting, novalog for fast acting and Regular insulin “R” medium acting that you get at Walmart for high protein meals since it has a slower onset.

    Lucky to have a gym at the hospital to still lift. No gains lost during the corona holocaust. Full home gym will be completed in a week.
