Hi all, I just finished SSB1 Mid Volume and here are my results.
First of all, I’d like to mention that I while this worked for me, it may not work for you. I started this plan on January 22nd, weighing in at 221lbs with an FTP of 260. My goal for this year to be fit for Leadville, with an FTP of 320+ and weight around ~190lbs.
To help accomplish this, I decided to start intermittent fasting. My fast right now is a 16:8 ratio. Note that I worked myself up to the 16-hour fast. Each week, I went up an hour from 12 hours until I hit the 16-hour mark. This means most workouts are done in a fasted state.
My food intake has been very consistent, I’ve been trying to stay on the Paleo bandwagon. This means a lot of sweet potatoes, cauliflower rice, healthy fats, and protein.
I tried to follow the SSB1 Mid Volume plan to a T, except for 2 Sundays, the first Sunday instead of the TR workout I decided to go XC skiing(fasted) and the second Sunday day I opt to do a 30 min Dans(not fasted) ride. I usually do my workouts in the early morning hours, 5 times a week.

I will keep this intermittent fasting up for as long as I can and will keep updating you guys!
