I’m a beginner, so to speak. I just joined T-Nation after a friend recommended it. I mean, I’ve lurked and read the articles before but never really though to join.
I’m 5’6" and 176 pounds. I want to cut fat, but not really sure where I should go in my goals.
I want to be strong and lean.
During the summer, I was relatively active and dropped 11 pounds. Gained the weight back when I got busy with school and my eating got away from me now. It’s May and I’m prepared to really buckle down and lose the weight.
I have been playing roller derby since January. Two practices a week, but am now attending three. They’re about 2-3 hours long each. My practices are M/W/Sun.
I just recently joined a private gym that specifies in strongman and powerliftingesque training. I lift Thurs/Sat/Sun, and it’s pretty much what my Strength coach tells me to do.
We deadlift thurs, bench saturday, and squat sundays along with accessory work and sometimes some conditioning thrown in. I also want sometimes go for a walks and rollerblade around my neighborhood. I’m also going to be starting some BJJ/martial arts training soon and also want to try out Bikram Yoga.
I average 1500-1700 calories on my non-lifting days and 1900-2100 on my lifting days. I haven’t been super consistent in recording my calories like I was last summer, but I’m getting back into it.
Pictures are here:

Also, am curious to roughly what you think my bodyfat is
