I've decided that my genetics are not superior as far as bodybuilding, nor am I truly interested in getting involved in heavy drug use to experiment.
I have nothing really to live for, so I've decided to join the Navy SEALs and at least do something respectable.
Here is my question:
To prepare for Navy seals, I need to work up to do all of this on a daily basis:
1) Running upto 5-6 miles a day,
2) Swim for 30-60 minutes,
3) Keep lifting weights to continually strengthen and preserve my llean muscle mass as best as possible.
I am also 233lbs, and 6 feet tall. The max allowable weight for Navy SEALs, is 205lbs. So I need to lose about 25lbs, hopefully of just fat.
So... I need to simultaneously build endurance, and cut fat... while keeping as much muscle as humanly possible.
I want to approach this like a cutting bodybuilder.... so I'd like to preserve as much muscle as I can. Hopefully I can at least go into SEAL school as one of the bigger & stronger ones.
Can anyone outline a basic eating schedule for me... to best preserve my muscle mass, while allowing me to lose fat? As far as when to eat in relation to my endurance and weight training... and a general break down of protein to carbs to fats?
This is sort of like a cutting bodybuilders schedule... since I'll be doing cardio 2x a day, on top of weightlifting. My cardio will just be higher intensity probably. I may require more carbs than a typical BB'er since my cardio needs to be fast paced.
ie: do I run on empty stomach, or after breakfast... or what? Do I keep taking dextrose & whey post workout? etc etc.
Also, what fat loss supplments can you recommend.... legal or non-OTC? Or any other OTC supplements that may aid in my unique goals?
I have about 4 months to lose 20lbs or so.
Thanks for any help
