Hi everyone…I’ve been reading t-mag for several months and think its the best source of info out there. And after reading the forums a bit i’d like to post a question.
I’ve been lifting on and off my whole life but really got back into it seriously 2.5yrs ago. Before finding t-mag its been pretty unstructured…i’m in the middle of doing the T-mag Beginner Blast just to get something foundational started and get my butt moving in the right direction. I’ve been eyeing the Meltdown Training for awhile and I think i may give it a go after i’ve been at the Blast for 6 weeks.
My goal is to lose 25-30lbs of fat…i’m female, 5’8, 37%bf give or take, and i log my nutrition and workouts. I take in about 1500 cals a day…but i may need to increase it b/c i seem to be wiped out after 2-3 workouts weekly. I’ve tried low-carb and i just can’t swing it…it leaves me with absolutely no energy. I tend to go high intensity every week with every workout and recently i’ve been warned against that. I plan on trying Biotest Classic GROW and i have a Prolab Therma-Pro fatburner and will be adding EFA’s to my diet.
Would Meltdown Training be ideal for my goal? since it’s short term what would be a good supplemental training method? i read MT is best when a strength program is completed beforehand. perhaps my question is broad but i’m trying to learn as i go thanks for your input and patience.
