So I am a relativly new powerlifter ( Done my first meet over a month ago ) and I would like to lose some weight. I know this is an age old question of how to lose weight whilst maintaining strength but I would like to know if any of you have been able to do it? At my last comp i weighed in at 92.6 kg. I know to most of you that does not seem like that much. However, since we compete in a weigh class sport and the fact that the weight classes are due to change I would really like to cut some weight to stay in the 93kg class. Right now I am about 18% BF possibly? I would really like to cut this down a bit.
So what types of diet/meal plan do yous use to maintain/gain a low fat physique? I do know this would possibly be suited to another part of the forums, however I dont want to lose rediculous amounts of strength and weight.
I do know I need to start doing cardio ( as at the moment i do none apart from skipping on sundays ) So I know i need to start doing some Complexes and Cardio etc. However help from yous would be great.
Before I got into strength sports I used to weigh 210 pounds with no muscle and managed to cut down to around 153lbs. However, I was still relativly skinnyfat and I think I went around the whole procedure wrong. Now I weigh around 205lbs roughly. I am really happy with the fact I have been able to put on about 50lbs in less than a year and havent got stupidly fat.
Anyway all help would be appreciated!
