Hey, help a bloke out!!
I’ve been low carbs for about 12 weeks (<60g+weekly refeed of around 160g) and dropped plenty of lard while still being strong for my weight (I pulled a 205kg dealift for 3 reps a few weeks ago) I’m around 11-13% bodyfat around 162lbs (age 31) and can see the top 2 row of abs but have proper STUBBORN lower ab/back flab. Would the paraworkout protocol change for someone lighter than the average joe?
I consider myself pretty strong for my weight, but have the bone structure of Gollum + wrists about as big as ET. I’m currently bumping my carbs up to 70-80g para - workout, training full body (AC’s Hugh Jackman routine) one day on one day off. I’m generally getting the recommended my 1.25g protein per pound (not including para w-out) 90g fat and low carbs the rest of the day. This come in at about 2500cals a day.
I’m thinking of bumping my para workout carbs up to 90g as well as adding 50g carbs for breakfast (quinoa+berries+a little honey) while dropping fat to around the 70-80g day. on my non weights days I’m doing some complexes + conditioning work (Surge WF+CH before and CH during and after, low carbs the rest of the day) I have a day off once a week
I’m of the thinkin that I don’t handle carbs to well, as the fact I can’t seem to shift the stubborn fat lower belly/back. I’ll be honest, I’m a proper paranoid of putting on any more fat aroung my belly (I’m toned in all other areas)by adding more carbs, but am stick of being a skinny weasel. I train HARD and don’t lack energy but am worried about obsessing/dieting and the metabolic trauma it causes the body.
My friends are no good as they’re all settled and get out of breath grating cheese. The meatheads at the gym are so geared up that the urinals have had to be re-enforced with titanium to stop them perishing - so their no good for advice. I had a go on the gear a few years ago, put weight on, got more zits than I could count, and lost 90% after I went off it. HELP ME OUT PLEASE. A little advise would help me out big time. I’m committed to building a better body, but just need some guidance.
Thanks in advance
