ok, here’s the deal : 11 weeks until summer vacation. Current weight around 270-280, of which about 80 pounds is fat (so there’s a lot of muscle too since I am 5’1" tall).
Goal : extreme fat loss within this time frame, willing to sacrifice a bit of lbm (which I don’t lose very easily).
I was wondering has anyone here even considered the idea that could it be beneficial to NOT weightlift during this period but to TONS AND TONS of HIIT.
I have recently started wrestling and trust me, at this weight the workout is inexplicaply hard and intense, but somehow I am hanging there. Since I wrestle 3 times a week I can’t go to a zerocarb diet (or anything that would be considered as such with a small amount of carbs).
So if I don’t weight train, maybe I can have up to 7-8 super super intense HIIT sessions (like wrestling) combined with some early-morning-empty-stomach-cardio training a few times per week?
What do you guys think about this?
I know that in the LONG run I hamper my fatloss if I loose LBM but in this case I am in a BIG hurry.
Also, what kind of a diet would you suggest with some “normal” (but limited) amount of carbs in it? How low can I go without stopping my fat loss?
Any help greatly appreciated. TIA.
