previous stats (2003): 281LB , waist:42
LOWEST (2007): 190LB-195 but my body had the same structure in the pics but a smaller frame...love handles never went away
BF: didn't know
waist: jeans 34 slacks: always 36
CURRENT: 212 and I just turned 30!
waist: 36 jeans and slacks: 38
Problem: I've lost 91LB at one point and honestly, it was all done when I was when I was entry-level at work and more active(cardio 3-4 times a week). With time, responsibilities grew along with the waist line at at this point I've tried many workout routines, diets and with an ON and OFF relationship with the fitness world and gym.... I think I'm ready to take my goal very seriously.
I've read bodybuilding forums and the V-Diet, I know the rule of thumb for fat loss is 80% diet and a combo of lifting and cardio but looking at my pics can you please suggest what would work best for me given that I CAN ONLY COMMIT to the Gym 3 days a week ! Also, I absolutely enjoy full body workouts.
- What is my approx bf?
- Given I can do 3x a week(due to work), should I workout high intensity circuit training with moderate or heavy weights?
- Diet: What kinda of macro split should I use?
- Should I primarily focus on diet and cardio or diet and lifting for my transformation approach?
- I've read a lot of articles, Body of Fire, HIIT, V-Diet but what would work best for a person who can workout 3x a week at 6-7:30 AM only.
I SINCERELY APPRECIATE EVERYONES HELP!!!
