Hey guys, got a quick question for you on the speed of weight loss. Let me start off by saying I’ve been lifting seriously for about a year and started off really really skinny, therefore, I eat like an elephant to gain. Thing is, I don’t eat 100% clean and over a year I went from about 9-10% bodyfat to roughly 12%-15% bodyfat.
I’ve made significant strength and lean muscle gains relative to where I was at initially, but now the bodyfat is becoming too much. My plan is to clean up the diet a bit and toss in about 30-45 mins of extra cardio 3 days of the week. That and/or do circuit training at the end of my workouts. Right now I’m sitting at 197.5lbs and im thinking if im somewhere around 12-15% right now I’ll have to lose a good 10 lbs of bodyfat to be where I want to be or at least close, which is about 8-10% bf . I have a grappling tournament in ~2 months and I’m wondering if I am able to lose that in that time frame. Keep in mind I have a pretty fast metabolism. Any thoughts?
