LISS Cardio 4 Weeks Out from a Meet?


#1

I'm trying to cut down to the 165 class and I'm way too fat right now. I will be using the water shedding technique but it's not enough. I need to lose some bodyfat.

Do you think LISS cardio will significantly affect my strength? I only plan to do 10-20 minutes of walking on the treadmill or walking my dog every morning.

If I can't cut down in time I'll just compete in the 181's

How much do you weigh now?

That’s a pretty big drop. Personally, I’d go 181 unless you have experience with bigger weight cuts.
