Ok, been reading my ass of since I found this website just a few days ago and I must say I am on a little bit of an information overload, so I figured I would ask a few questions in order to better understand what Ive been reading. But first I wanted to describe my situation. I am 31 about 192lbs and around 22%body fat.
I am lifting for about an hour 4 days a week and doing some HIIT for about 20-30 min in the mornings.....pretty much everyday, and taking one day off. I am currently taking about 175-200 grams of protein a day and taking creatine. I started an account on fitday and my daily caloric intake is around 2000. I have a couple of questions.
- Should I add or could I add HOT-ROX to help speed up fat loss?
- I have heard thats its not a good idea to do cardio after a weight lifting session. Is this true? Or could I do some HIIT after my weight lifting? Or am I better off to split it like I am currently with HIIT in the mornings and lifting in the evenings.
I mainly want to drop this body fat and tone up a little in the process. I have no desire to be 200 lbs and big. 165-170 and toned would be what I am after. Once I get to that point I will see if I want to try to add a lot of muscle mass, but for now its not my main goal. Please advise and explain recommendations
