Hey guys, I'm trying to decide what diet to go on. I am 6'1", used to weigh ~160 and bulked up over 3 months to about 215. That was over a year ago. Since then my weight has stayed steady around there. I now weigh about 220.
I'm unsure of my body fat percentage but I'm sure it's 25%+ at this point.
Bench = 240 lb
Squat = 375+
Curl = 120
Deadlift = haven't been able to do it because of injury.
I've accumulated decent muscle at least compared to where I was. The only problem is that the fat is getting ridiculous. I don't want to be bulky anymore. I want to cut it with the least muscle mass loss as possible. That's why I'm weighing these two diets.
I bought all of the supplements for the 'Get Shredded Diet" and calculated out some example meals but I missed the part where it said you should be under 20% body fat. I'm guessing that it's because it's not a sustainable way to keep the weight down. That's when I looked into carb cycling. It seems easier and safer for muscle retention, but it might take longer.
Supplements I bought: Greens+, CLA, HOT-ROX, Creatine, BCAA, ZMA, and a food scale.
I figure that I could apply these to any diet, so they won't be a waste.
I workout 4x a week with:
Day 1: chest, upper back
Day 2: Squats, Abs, Lunges
Day 3: off
Day 4: arms
Day 5: off
Day 6: shoulders
Day 7: off
Any ideas? I'm kind of unsure what to go for here. Thanks for your time.
