I’m 5’11", 186lbs with bf% somewhere around 20% I think. I look relatively lean in my lower body and arms, but I’ve got some horrible love handles and some lower back fat that I guess may indicate undesirable estrogen levels. I, for the first time, have actually come up with a solid eating plan, and expect to be able to stick to it. I will count calories if I don’t see a positive trend within a 4-6 weeks, but as of now, I had just planned on keeping up with protein intake, eating whole foods, and eliminating any crap. I can post pictures of what I look like if need be (please let me keep my shameful love handles to myself).
I need help on deciding on a workout plan. I recently came across Nutty’s plan for beginners and really liked what I read. I would probably do the 3 day a week/full body version. However, I was also considering a 3 day a week circuit that would like this:
Each exercise performed for a minute, with a minute rest after all exercises are completed, done for 3 sets, then a 4th set with a minute rest between each exercise.
I assume the exercises could be changed up for the next two days so long as the same muscle groups were hit.
I know someone will ask what my goals are, so they are getting down to at least 15% bf and of course hypertrophy. I imagine the circuit would help me to reach the fat loss goals quicker than Nutty’s plan, but with proper eating, maybe they would both work equally well.
