im 86 kgs(60 kgs when started weight training 20 months back!)
goal- strength, but dont wanna get fat!
Im following 5/3/1 3 days split.
Its summer time here in india and yesterday i wore tshirt after 2-3 months.
Now, i've gained 5-6 kgs in that period and some of that is obviously fat, but i was really repulsed to see 'pregnant lady' kind of belly!(i have lordosis too)
I knew i was getting bit fat and i even reduced around 200-300 cal but still i have that skinny fat look!(i dont even eat junk food)
I dont do cardio as yet.
I dont calculate fat and carb in my diet but protein is around 1 lbs/lbs bw, and i think i eat at maintainance level because my weight is around 86 kgs for a month now.
Im interested in following 'north of vag' template but here theres no hill nor prowler, and ive read that cardio after strength training affects strength.
Q1 - does it really matter fat and carb % when im eating maintainance and want to be lean?
Q2 - Wanna lose fat without hampering my strength level much. how ?
one more question not related to fat loss..
Q3 - here theres is nor GHR. I do partner assisted GHR. Is it good or is there something more productive exercise than that?
thanks for reading!
P.S - i desparately feel the need of a mentor as i train alone. I would be really appreciate if any of you guide me to that 300/400/500 numbers!
my current level is nowhere near it though 155x6/225x3/260x4
