Can I get an opinion? I am 17 and am 173 at 10.3% body fat. I just came off of Chad Waterbury’s Outlaw Strength and Condition program and received some good results. Now I am in basketball season and I am restarting his program was heavier weights but since I’m doing alot of cardio I think it is appropriate to cut.
Is it possible to have a successful cut when I lift for an hour then go to practice right after. I am on a high protein diet, lower calorie diet: about 2000. I was eating about 3500 calories but it seems to go to waste now. I’m trying to keep carbs under 100g, protein above 180, and fats fairly low but i’m not to focused on them. I use olive oil and take omega 3’s. I also take BCAA’s (about 12 a day) and drink Surge Recovery after working out and a low carb protein shake after 8 pm. Do all of these spell out success or am I doomed for failure?
Any help would be great. I also have a bottle of HOT-ROX Extreme that i could use but that thing scares me (gets my heart beating fast). And please don’t say “you’re too small to be worrying about cutting” or “gain some mass first” because im doing too much cardio to really get much success in the gym. Thanks again
