I am a swimmer and was excelling at longer distance events; however, I became a little too T-manly for this. Currently I am 5’8.5’’ and 170 lbs! It’s really difficult moving through the water fast now, my recovery time just about doubled, and I am a little sick of wakeing up in pools of sweat from the excess mass.
My goal is to reach 155, maintain strength(if not improve), and improve swimming. I know I can do the latter because about 3 months ago I could pace 56 sec for 100 yards and now it’s difficult for 60 sec. I have no idea how to do this as far as diet and lifting, and to complicate everything I still will be swimming 2-3 hours a day(it’s training I can’t cut back.)
I am fairly lean (I think about 10% BF) so I need to lose a lot of mass and density. Usefull help will be appreciated.
Thinking about useing a kettlebell because a lot of fighters seem to have it and they are relativly small, advice?
