Ok, I lose weight, stick for it for a while then slowly it starts creeping up again despite a lot of exercise. It also starts creeping up when I stop counting calories and creating meal plans and sticking to it....so I know I am responsible. Although my clothes feel the same, I do know I am gaining weight cause the scale says so!
However, I am quite confused as to how to maintain my energy level with all the sports that I am doing/performing for competition level and lose fat!
Here is my weekly workout schedule, please bare with me:
AM 6 to 7 paddle session outdoors with team, intensity 80% soon to be 100% with competitions approaching
PM: run 30-40 min and second paddle session, maybe 75% intensity
AM: 20 min run
PM: 60 min weight training: supersets, focussing on fixing imbalances, no super heavy lifting
PM: weight training: heavy training
PM: paddle session: 60 min, run 30 min, second paddle session, I am normally dead tired after this evening.
If I have energy: run 20 min, thats if I can get up
PM: weight training, circuit style, compound movements,
AM: long run try and get in 60 min if I don’t get fed up before
Interval training run (I prefer this one)
Road biking, around 3-4 hours with club, between 80 and 100 km beginning of season.
I’m planning on following Thibodeau’s carb cycling plan as low carb all the time simply does not work for me.
Based on my activity level, how do you guys see my eating plan cause I’m just totally not getting it lately.
Keep in mind that on my biking day: I have to consume 2 scoops of Surge throught my 3-4 hours as well as one protein bar that has 30g of carbs, below that I konk out during my ride and have a hard time following the guys!
What I am looking for is:
Your opinion on how I should be cycling my carbs if at all for now
Your opinion on losing weight/maintaing energy to keep up with training
I am open to any suggestions to help me out
