Actually, he may not be far off. I would expect a 225lber to use about 5-6 or so cals per minute walking casually.
That is aprox. 6-750cals and maybe you step on it for a minute or so every 5, you could burn off that kind of cals.
My bigger concern is the diet. I didn’t write it down, but if memory is correct you are only taking in about 2300cals. I don’t think that’s enough. I know you’re cutting, but unless you are speed cutting and not concerned with lbm loss, I would eat another 30-40g/fat per day. Possibly even 20-40g/protein more. I mean maint for a 225lber must be around 2300-2500 cals depending on composition. You’re starving yourself and your body will eat your muscle and store the fat. This is the opposite of your goals so I think you need to rethink your caloric intake to accomodate youe goals.
That said, I think a good am stroll is great when cutting. I would seriously reconsider adding any more wo accomodating extra cals for that. Even if you still leave yourself in a deficit, better to be deficit of 200cals than 6-800cals.
good luck brother stellar
Greetings sasquatch! I’m pretty much through with the double cardio sessions although today I had my BCAA’s, a scoop of whey protein isolate, taurine, trib, chromium picolinate, cayenne, forslean, and N-acetyl L-tyrosene. I knocked out an hour on the elliptical, snacked on a cookie dough Metabolic Drive bar, then went at it again for another hour.
Pulled out the Surge and knocked out a circuit of wide grip T-bar rows, hypers, pull-ups, and incline bench presses for 5 cycles. My strength is surprisingly still there but I’ve only been training as such for the past 12 days on a hypocaloric diet. As of yet, I don’t believe I’m being hampered. Maybe I’m deluded, lol. My goal is to drop to 8% bodyfat (currently 14%) - I’m currently “between jobs” and hellbent on succeeding with all the free time I possess.
Glad you all chimed in. Peace be with you.
