Try it and see if it affects your lifting. If not, do it. If so, find a way/ time to fit some conditioning in that won’t affect your training. Because if a 20 minute walk wears you out, your conditioning needs work. [/quote]
I parked my car in a grocery store parking lot last night walked to the gym and back which was about 20 mins. It wasn’t bad at all and soothing actually. I’ll up that to 30-40 mins next then by the end of this week I’ll try and walk to the gym from my house which should be about 50 mins.
How old are you and how much training experience do you have?[/quote]
About 10 months of experience, all in powerlifting. I’m 24.
At 25% BF I would focus on getting that down. It is just unhealthy. If you are lifting 4x per week there is no reason why you cannot reduce BF% with just correct dieting. Nothing crazy needed. Figure out your total calorie requirement, macros and design a meal plan. Plan your meals, no more eating whatever. If you are lifting heavy you will recomp just fine once your diet is on point.[/quote]
I started tracking it since yesterday:
I go a bit over in my fats (+9 today) and carbs (+11 yesterday) but for the most part its all close, I need to work on it just a little bit more and get it all within my limits.
Also, I did start tracking my food and I’m doing the IIFYM with the numbers posted above, yesterday I ate healthy but today I went to pizza hut buffet (lol) but stayed within my limits for the most part, went +9 in fats.
5-8 and 160 at 25% bf? Means you are about 120 without the fat.
dude just lift and eat. nothing more, nothing less. [/quote]
That’s the plan, just won’t go over my calories/fats/carbs limit.
