Hi guys, I need some help with my current programming/dieting
I love lifting and want to increase but the only thing holding me back is how much cardio I do
I’m an elite basketballer (senior high school) training roughly 10-12 hours a week not including lifting, i would be in the weight room around 6 days a week for an hour each time.
I’m carrying around ~12% and have to reduce that but I want to keep up my strength and size while still getting bigger, at the moment I’m reasonably strong for my size and one of the strongest guys on my teams by far.
I always put in 100% on court and in the weight room and I just need a little help because all the articles I read say barley any cardio and I can’t find anything on elite athletes getting big,
Do I have to just have a very high calorie intake to cope with the cardio while getting bigger?
I’m sort of looking for a diet like an elite sprinter would have?
The supplements I’m currently taking are:
FIsh oil caps
Should I be taking anything different? Can you recommend anything else?
Don’t hesitate to tell me what I’m doing wrong or critisize me, I’ve only been lifting for about a year and a half and I’m looking for all the help I can get! No hate please
Thanks to anyone that can help me!
BF: around 12%
