I'll just get right to the point. I'm 18 years old, 85kg(187 lbs) and 1,86m(6"1). I've been inactive for quite some time but before that I was very active, 5-6 times per week in the gym so I'm not a beginner, but I've never actually been lean and never taken an effective cut. Now I've put on some fat and lost some muscle during the inactivity and I wanna get lean, get rid of that extra fat and reveal the abs. I have a deadline of 6 weeks, I'm going off on a two weeks vacation July 31st and wanna look good on the beach . I just want that long desired beach body but not huge.
So my question is: How is the most effective way to reach my goal in those 6 weeks? Should I work the whole body 3 times per weeks or so, or should I lift weights as usual and just add more cardio?
The idea is:
A) Full body circuit 3x per week and add in HIIT every other day or every single day(after workout on workout days) and abs every day.
B) I was thinking 4 or 5-day-split with HIIT and abs after each workout and on weekends some outdoor activity(I'd also do that in option A)), and of course lower weight -> more reps.
Can you also name some good supplements to use for an effective cut, maybe you have some experience and can tell me your opinion on them.
Thank you very much and I hope someone can answer all this
