Hello everyone Swoleheim here I am wondering what workout plans you guys would recommend for someone trying to cut while maintaining as much muscle and strength possible. I have been running DC training on my second training “cycle” currently sitting 199 down 12 pounds from a month ago but I cut out alcohol and crap food all together. I am sitting around a 1700 to 2300 calorie intake a day while working a flooring job (construction kicks your ass basically) full-time and hitting the gym 4 times a week in the AM, I’m running Push pull currently with fasted cardio beforehand.
Now to my issues, I have a fucked appetite and no matter what I don’t ever feel like eating especially in the mornings. As of the last few days I have been feeling lethargic and run down.
I am taking 12.5mg caradarine, 10mg RAD140, and 10mg Mk-2866; only been taking 2 days while continuing to eat and train the same. Planning on running this compound stack for 8 weeks. Then PCT and see where we sit in terms of overall BF% loss.
I am here to see what others think and recommend for me in terms of getting down to 10% BF, currently sitting around 20% I believe maybe even more, I have already lost 6 inches on my waist in the last 3 weeks and see the fat coming off I just want to keep it going.
OH and lifting stats bench is 225 for 1 squat is 225 for 3 and deadlift is 315 for 3, I haven’t tested anything heavy out yet, just from my knowledge this is my strength 3 weeks back into the gym.
Overall goal currently is to cut down then slow gain my way back up with a 3200 caloric intake (40%/30%/30%)
And of course put on as much LEAN muscle as possible
Should I increase cardio time to 1 hour sessions of low impact or increase my training to 5 times a week Monday through Friday with a different split? I also understand 3 weeks isn’t a considerable amount of time to see large progress, I just want to make sure I am setting myself up for success rather than failure.
Any questions please respond and I will answer promptly and to the best of my ability, thanks guys.
