V-Diet, then report after that or a new post. You don’t need to bulk at this point if you’re 25% bf.
-or some kind of diet.
You don’t need MAG-10/Anaconda. You’re not at that level of intensity yet.
How hum beta-a do you use and how?
Your strength can plateau or drop on a serious cut, which is what you just may need. You’re 16, you should learn to drop the ego if that’s an issue about the strength in lifts (if it’s an issue, just putting it out there).
You won’t have a surplus of calories to get stronger or stay at that intensity, typically.
How many cal do you intake? what kind (roughly)?
Last comment would be, why would you keep the training plan the same? Maybe it’s just my thinking, but shouldn’t you focus all your resources/energy on cutting? I’m not saying do complexes 5 days a week (though it may not be a bad idea to do some light ones here and there). I would drop some BS in your plan, either reduce the volume or the little exercises kinda just jammed in there. Lift HARD still, deadlift, squat, bench, military press, row, etc. Use a 3-8RM and kill it. This will make sure you don’t eat up too much muscle on a cut with heavy lifts. The rest of the volume? You guessed it, energy systems work. Or split it up a little and do some HIIT/complexes in the am after a light breakfast or just some supps then lift later.

hey thanks for your input! yep i’ve doing the G-flux diet(if you want to call it that, it can be used both ways). i wasn’t suggesting i was going to use MAG-10 and anaconda but i was just stating my periworkout with the resources available. i take about 3-4g a day, about 40minutes before working out and on non-training days roughly just about anytime.
i see what you mean on the strength area, i never thought of it that way. puts it in a new perspective. i guess its kinda like taking 1 step back to take 2 steps forward?
about my training, i just realized i got it the wrong way. haha when i finished typing that post i knew i was missing some details but i just couldn’t remember it. to make it easier to understand i’m going to train as per normal, but add in cardio maybe 2x a week, and slowly increase it to 4x a week. i’m currently not doing much crap in the lifting programs, heavy compounds and slightly lighter(still heavy) isolation stuff so i would think that part is fine. i’ll be eating relatively ‘‘clean’’, and the ratio would be 33/33/33 (i find that i eat this way naturally already) and about 3500 calories
You need to up the Beta-a. Mine is plain, straight beta-a. I add 1g in some water at every meal and during the day, getting at LEAST 8 grams. Get 8-10 grams or it’s not doing much of anything aside from giving you the tingles. There’s only good research (from what I have read here) showing benefits from that dosage. Also, you can just put the amount you need in a gallon jug and finish it by the end of the day. If you REALLY like the tingles, use the dose you need for that (2.5g maybe?) and use the rest during the day. That made a difference in my lifts.
Do you know how much cal you got before now? Seems like a lot for a cut I guess. Mainly high on the carbs. If you want to use ratios I would use half that percentage on carbs and add more to the fats (those are total cal, not grams, correct?). The lower carbs will help get your insulin sensitivity up some so that you can cut faster towards the end and and bulk with less fat later. I would take it down to 150g or lower (bc you’re getting about 300g carbs now if my math is decent).
On a related side note. You’re young, this is a lot of info too, especially bc you haven’t had a lot of experience in any of this. With that said, don’t make this seem like a diet. Eat meat, lots of it, get your veggies too. You’re going to eat like a king though, honestly. Oils on your meat, on your veggies (I even put coconut oil on my tea/coffee, it’s not bad I promise). You can have butter on everything, cream in your coffee. It’s not bad. Make it a habit, not a diet. It makes it easier to grasp and enjoy. If you need meal ideas and stuff look around for the anabolic diet ideas, they will help you with lower/no carb stuff and great meals that are FILLING.
