I'm new to T-Nation and need advise. First off, a little about my self. I'm 56 and currently weigh 242 and 6'2". I'm down from about 300. I guess you would say I was a former FAT boy.
I've been lifting for about one year. Five days on and two off. Doing cardio about three times a week(30 min.ea. day) after weight training. I don't know what my BF is, guessing, about 20%. I have been lifting as heavy as possible. Most of the time 5X5 up to 5X8 on all compound lifts.
My goal in a year. Enter my first contest. Talked to a trainer and he advised a good clean diet (which I've lost 10.2 lbs. since the 12th of July) and a new workout routine.
Here's my question, he has me doing sets of all my lifts with 12 to 25 reps. How can I maintain any size with this type of lifting. I know I'm going to lose size because I have soooo much body fat the get rid of. Hope this make sense. Any advise or information is greatly appreciated.
