A little background information on me first.
I’m 27 years old, 5’ 11", and weigh 173 lbs… bodyfat is 17.3%. I’m Former Air Force (read: I know the effects of pushups, situps, and running all to well). As far as body type, I believe I am an ecto… hard to gain etc.
I’ve been a long time reader and decided yesterday to join up on the forums. Anywho… I have planned out the following schedule for myself with a high proten (200g+), low carb (60g-), high calorie (3500+) diet spread over 5-6 meals.
Sunday: Chest / Back
Tuesday: Biceps / Triceps / Shoulders
Thursday: Legs / Abs
Workouts no longer than an hour, going for strength over size but will take size as well
My question is, with this schedule and my moderate diet should I increase my caloric intake because of my HIIT training? I’m worried that I’ll be burning a lot more calories (fat) than I am taking in for muscle (size+strength).
My goal is to break 200lbs, with lean muscle, and between 9-12% body fat(give or take). I’m also concerned that I might never make the 200lb mark because of the HIIT training (although it’s designed to burn fat/cals).
