So right now I’m on a 5 day routine,
Mon: Chest Tri
Tues: Plyos and HIIT
Wed: Back Biceps
Fri: Shoulds Traps HIIT
Sun: Squat and Deads
And my diet looks something like:
8:00- 3 eggs, wheat toast
11:00- grilled chicken breast sandwhich
1:00- Varies, usually a lean grilled meat with veggies and rice
6:00- Varies, usually chicken/pork with rice and veggies
Post workout: 200 cal protein shake
Pre bed: Banana and 1 1/2 cup of milk
This totals up to about 2300 calories, which is around 300 more than my BMR. Right now, being at around 10% body fat, I’m looking to get down to 7 or 8 for the entire summer. I’m around 195 lbs at 6’1" so I have a fairly weak amount of muscle, but I’m looking more for leanness. I’ve hit a plateau at 9.5-10% and can’t go much lower. No matter what tweaks I make to my diet I can’t seem to take any calories off, and I’d be nervous to lose even more muscle.
This seems like a problem that could be solved by HIIT, but I need some help.
I’m doing 10 intervals of 30 burpees with a 1-1 ratio of rest and activity. I do this 8-10 times and then I’m done.
What can I do to make this final plunge of 2% ??
