5’6, 150, lifting for 5 years. Currently wrapping up an 8-week cut, and I’m curious how many more weeks people think I’d need if I were to diet down to contest-level conditioning. Am I eight weeks out? Twelve? Sixteen?
I’d like to compete after I finish grad school (3 years from now), and I’m hoping I can maintain something close to this level of leanness while slowly putting on another 3/lb of muscle or so per year before then. Also might help if I learn how the hell to do the mandatories.
