Okay, so here's the skinny.
About a year and a half ago, i was a skinny little turd weighing in at 135. Today, I've become a slightly bigger, yet still pretty small, but still fat turd. I now weigh in at 200 +/-.
Obviously, I've gained quite a lot of fat during this period of time. And today, it really hit me, i need to loose some of it! My stomach for instance, is sticking a bit "too far out".
I'll post some pictures tomorrow, when I'll have a chance to take some.
In the meantime, here's my question. What can I expect of my training if i decide to go a slightly negative on my calorie intake? Will i be able to gain any strength, or do i have to settle for maintenance work?
As of now, i do 3/4 workout sessions a week, none of which are cardio. I was however thinking of adding gerilja cardio 3 times a week. So maybe I could just keep my current food intake, and loose weight with the extra cardio...
Maybe the best thing is loosing some weight, then start focusing on gaining strength? Isn't there a way to gain strength/muscle while not packing on too much fat.
Are there any good articles i should read regarding this?
(Also, turns out I found an image of my back, it's pretty recent. I'll get the rest up later, with emphasis on my fat fat fat stomach.
Thank you very much for any input!
And is running and training legs bad two days in a row?
Let's say it looks something like this.
Mon: High intensity cardio (running)
Wed: High intensity cardio (running)
Fri: High intensity cardio (running)
Will that be too much strain on the legs, will i be more likely to "blow out a knee" or something. Basically, am I getting enough recovery?
