Hello, I’m new and I’m changing my life starting 4 weeks ago. I too was a College FB, Lacrosse and always in shape and lifted. I then started MTB about 8 years ago and gave up on the gym. I then went back to school about 3 years ago to obtain a new degree, and thats were it all went down hill.
I put on 50 pounds, ride only once a week (due to a new son that we have, that’s not the down hill part) and just pretty much have given up on being healthy, untill about a month ago. I love MTB and I use to love the body I had and I WANT IT BACK.
So I’m now Lifting 3 times a week and riding a least once a week for at least an hour each time. I have a keg for a belly and my BF% is probaly in the mid to high 20’s. I’m lifting 3x5, 3x8, and 2x15 for M,W,F with good gains in lift weight. I’m already starting to see small improvements in mass from lifting 3 weeks.
My question is if I’m only lifting 3x a week and the little cardio that I can fit in, should my calorie intake be in the high range for muscle development, low range for fat lose, or somewhere in between
I’m 6’ and 267lb
Thanks for any tips someone can give
