I've been on a cutting cycle now for going on a week. Doing the Total-Body Training plan published here on T-Nation. My goal is to drop 16 lbs by March 10th (~1.9 lbs / week). I am doing cardio 3x a week, lifting 3x a week and having a rest day 1x a week. Just wanted to see what else I can do to maximize my results. I'm trying to increase my non excercise activities by walking my dogs at night and just generally trying to be more active. I know I could take my HOT-ROX, listed below, and use them but I am actually pretty curious to see how much I can lose on my own determination and effort, minus the HOT-ROX. But I am always open to ideas.
I have about 1/2 a bottle of HOT-ROX, 3/4 bottle of Methoxy-7, along with Low-Carb Grow!, protein powder etc. I am following Berardi's 7 principles as I think they make a lot of sense. I mainly eat whole foods: oats, veggies (spinach, peas, carrots), cheese, olive oil, some bread, chicken, beef, salmon and tuna.
Usually weight days are the following:
10 minute warmup
50-60 minutes lifting
20 minutes medium paced walking on a hill circuit on a tread mill
Usually cardio days are the following:
25-40 minutes medium paced jog on a hill circuit on a tread mill (will be outside once spring rolls closer)
Any comments or suggestions are welcome. If I need to up cardio time, that is not a big issue, etc,etc. Hit me up with some ideas ladies and gents,
