As most of you advanced lifters already know, planning is the key to success and in the past I have been spinning wheels when it comes to bodybuilding and get fit. After a lot of research and hours reading I have come to the following plan.
My plan is to body build and look good. At the moment I am 155lbs (70.5kg) and 5ft 9 (175cm) and 23yrs old. I have used a very rough body fat measurement using calipers and I think I am around 22% body fat (will verify later with my brother taking measurements for more accurate results).
Anways my plan is to cut to 140lbs (63.5kg) and reach approx 15% body fat at 0.55lbs per week (0.25kg per week) lose. This will take me around 28 weeks (7months) to reach this goal.
While I am doing this, I will be using the 5/3/1 strength training program with Boring but big assistance work out to improve my strength. So thats the normal 5/3/1 program + two assistance work outs tacked on for 4 days a week
I have read it is better to start with a strength training program and then switch to body building (hypertrophy) program, 6 months down the track. Hopefully my beginner gains will offset the cut and improve my strength and once I reach 140lbs in 7 months, I will start a clean bulk with a hypertrophy program for god knows how long till I do a final cut. What do u guys think of this plan? Anything I am missing or fucked up bad?
