I recently came off my bulk at 170 with about 13-15% bf and want to lean out for the summer and so I can continue my bulk without being to … bulky. My 1st goal is 10% then if I look to small/flat, I’ll start bulking from there if not I’ll go down to 8%. Since what I want to do is keep my bf constantly at 10% like the AD says.
I started Alessi’s Meltdown yesterday. Ill probaly go heavier, did 65% of 1RM without much problem, next time because I did the whole thing plus an extra ab exercise and 1 more set of compounds. This is what my routine looks like atm:
I am following the anabolic diet besides the fact that I do a depletion workout and only have a 12 hour carb phase because I have a tendency to binge eat, carbs just aren’t that filling any more, keep it clean unless I’m with gf then well usually bake something and thatll be it. Im taking in 1900-1800 cals per day except Fri when I carb up I shoot for 2400. (Strong Endomorph)
So the questions I have are:
Should I add cardio? If so what kind I really enjoy tabata/HIIT but I’ve had good results with any type of cardio.
Is it okay to do my 3 day split + Meltdown? Or should I make those my cardio days?
Does my diet look alright? Its mostly chicken, eggs, beef, cheese, jello. I do supp with EFA though and sometimes have olive/whey shakes.
How long would it take me to hit 10% just wondering about a time frame if I do everything 100% correct no cheat meals, No skipped days.
