Dont flame me on here yet- I bet this is a discussion that has been beaten to death on this site, but I am a strength athlete (hammer throw) and looking into more of a powerlifting/bodybuilding image now that the end of my career is upon me (I’ll graduate from college in May, that is).
Anyway, We dont do a whole lot of cardio, as you can imagine- we only use 7 feet to get our throw off, but I am just carrying too much weight. At 6’3’’, I think I’m too heavy at 265. I think I’d be a medium lean at like 240, and probably be my leanest around 220. I want to be around 245 by may, and then perhaps try to stay at 245 and keep burning the fat and making it muscle. For the next 5 months, do I focus more on diet or cardio? If diet, how should I eat in order to keep my energy up, but my fat burning at a high? If I go the cardio route, where do I draw the line between maximal fat loss and muscle loss?
Thanks in advance!
