Hi Mike, I’m going to be working long hours this summer as a carpenter trimming platforms and painting them(can be very taxing and sweat is involved), and I was thinking of trying Intermittent Fasting to lose some stubborn fat that I have had around my waist for quite some time, is it ok to do IF along with my work days and treat the work as cardio? the main thing that is on my mind is that working in a fasted state could cause catabolism, and make me lose the muscle that I have built up so far. What is your opinion? and do you have any tips of losing the stubborn fat while keeping most of the muscle?
I totally understand what kind of job you had. I work at a Wally World distribution center. Started in shipping, loading about 3 to 4 full semi’s a day. Didn’t know how much weight I loaded. Then switched to non conveyable. When in dog food, I’d stack about 60k/lbs in 12 hours. That was MUCH easier than shipping. My first year, I struggled. Then I talked to my bro-in-law, who is a personal trainer, found and I started to do good. I was taking creatine and C4 prior to work, and took an Animal Pak with UniLiver every break, while eating protien every 3-4 hours. This brought me to Muscle for Life and The Books. I’m in maintenance department now, and are about to join a gym. I’ve been wanting to get the Legion multi’s and switch to Legion supplements. I’m about done reading BLS, and are gonna start the year one challenge. I’ve aready bought BBLS and Shredded Chef. I get excited every time I think about my goals.
After several weeks of vignettes , Angle made his televised WWF in-ring debut on November 14 at Survivor Series at the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Michigan , defeating Shawn Stasiak .  He began using The Patriot 's entrance theme " Medal " for his ring entrance, which became associated with Angle for the rest of his career. In his initial push, he remained undefeated for several weeks, eventually losing to the debuting Tazz by passing out at the Royal Rumble .  Angle's television character was an "American hero" gimmick based on his gold medal win at the 1996 Summer Olympics. In his promos, Angle presented himself as a role model and stressed the need to work hard to realize one's dreams, stressing the 3 I' s, "Intensity, Integrity and Intelligence". In his promos and ring entrances, Angle would always wear replicas of his gold medals around his neck. While he stood for many principles that are associated with "good guy" wrestlers , Angle was noticeably booed in his debut match and even the next night on Raw Is War in his match against The Godfather . which took place in his own hometown of Pittsburgh. The fans in general did not react positively to his billing as the first "real athlete" in the WWF, which ultimately led to him being portrayed as a villain , talking down to the audience and behaving as if he thought he was better than the fans and fellow wrestlers, usually taunting them with the question of, "Where are your gold medals?".
