This isn’t probably a goal of very many here, but I was wondering if anyone has an idea of how to lose muscle mass ON PURPOSE.
I would like to start running and become more generally fit, instead of big and bulky.
Currently I’m around 240 lbs. and 12%BF. That’s just too much weight whether fat or muscle to pound on my joints when I run for long periods.
I’m dieting now, doing 3-4 days of high intensity cardio on the elliptical along with 3 days of weights. I’m making good progress with fat loss(as determined by the mirror and waistline), but my overall weight isn’t dropping much.
Diet is around 2000-2500 kcal/day with mod. protein, mod. carbs and low to mod. fat. I don’t keep track, but if I had to guess, 40% protein, 40% carbs, 20% fat.
I’d like to be at 210 and really 190-200 eventually.
I would seriously lower the volume of weight-training, but it isn’t high now and I don’t want to lose all of my strength.
