I have finally found a hardcore gym near where I live where I can olympic lift. And now I finally have the means to hire a coach that has experience competing state wide and nationally and has been certified as weightlifting coach.
I am about 7 weeks into my weightlifting journey and have already lost about 8 pounds so far just from doing the weightlifting workouts. I am very far off from competing but would like to drop down to the 109 kilo weight class and have about 18 lbs to go. Has anyone lost a significant amount of fat while training as a weightlifter and how did you go about it? What kind of conditioning is good for weightlifting that doesn’t have a detrimental impact on the lifts?
I have been tracking my macros more consistently and have an app that helps me track throughout the day diet wise.
