Thanks for reading this note from a long time reader, first time poster.
I am a former university offensive lineman and strongman competitor who has decided that it is time to lose my excess weight and get more involved with team sports. I am 6’5" 335 lbs and I am not sure what my body fat percentage is. I have made some progress on the following nuitritional/excercise combo.
All training is done first thing in the morning in a fasted state.
4-5 times per week circuit training/GPP
skip rope 300 times
body weight squats
swiss ball situps
dumbell push presses
I attempt to limit the time between sets to ensure an elevated heart rate for the duration.
repeat 4-6 times finish with 5-10 20s treadmill sprints with 40s rest intervals or equivalent on stationary bike dependant on machine availibility.
I have been told that the reason I was hanging on to weight is that I was not eating enough, so now a typical day looks like this
can of tuna on rye bread
x-lean beef chili
I have had some success with this program, but I do feel that a person with a large amount of muscle under his fat should be losing at a faster rate. I have lost roughly 12lbs in the past 6 weeks. I would appreciate any honest feedback on this. I am open to adding supplementation, so your thoughts on that are welcome as well. Thanks so much for your time.
