Well, track season began this week, and obviously since I’m posting about it, I’m running.
I’m doing shot-put as well as the 400m.
My coach alternates between hard/easy recovery days, so at least he’s relatively edumacated as opposed to those coaches who run hard everyday.
Anyway, the past 4 weeks I have been using T-dawg 2.0 diet frames, keeping carbs under 125/100 on workout/nonworkout days because I was doing cardio almost everyday to get in shape for track. I’ve lost 6 lbs, and I cant see any muscle loss yet, but these past few days I’ve upped my carbs to about 250 since I’m running for about an hour a day.
Does anyone have any ideas on what my protein/carbs/diet splits should look like? Any previous experience?
I’m 176 now, started dieting at 182.
Also, any suggestions on a workout program? I’ve suggested to the throwing coach that we incorporate oly lifts into the week, and he said he’d look into it.
I was thinking something like 2 compound movements on a monday/wednesday/friday split using 3x3 or 3x5 or 5x3 rep schemes.
