So I’m huge into my powerlifting, current goals are to deadlift 220kg, squat 180kg and bench 140kg.
But another issue I have is that I’m huge… and not in the good sense. I got so into my head that powerlifters need to eat fuck loads and ended up doing so, and now I’m horribly overweight.
I’m confused with what I should do, because (and correct me if I’m wrong), but you cant gain strength without being in a caloric surplus, but you have to be in a caloric deficit to burn fat away.
So atm, I’m a little confused with what I should be doing with my diet right now. I’m on about 3000kcal a day, about 200g protein, 300g carbs, 100g fats, on a 4 day split, 2 bench days and 2 squat/deadlift days.
If anybody has any feedback, help, tips or whatever I would really, really appreciate it, coz I’m in a bit of a pickle about it.
