So, I stopped working on weight loss for a while because I wanted to get as strong as possible for my first powerlifting meet (now 15 days away) and wanted to put all my energy into that. Now I'm working on a program to shift to after wards. I was going to do a four day, upper/lower split. Do some conditioning work, like sled dragging twice a week and the remaining days, go hiking, swim laps, etc, just some active recovery to burn calories.
However, now I've allowed myself to get talked into doing a weight loss contest with a coworker. Now I'm kind of thinking that maybe I should do something with more conditioning work. Cut strength training down to a couple days a week. Maybe something similar to CT's transformation article.
So I guess my question, would the upper/lower split with only a couple days conditioning and lots of NEPA result in some quick fat loss? Or should I focus on lots of conditioning work during the duration of the contest? My only concern is that we have not yet worked everything out so I don't know yet how long the contest will be...if it was one month, I wouldn't mind the idea of cutting back on strength training to a minimum...however, if it's going to be say three months...I don't want to cut back on heavy lifting for that long..
