Wait what?


Those numbers are fucking unreal.

If you're looking to shed bodyfat the key on weight training is keeping your strength to keep muscle tissue, there's no rocket science on it.

It would be more interesting if you post your intended or current diet in which you plan to loose n pounds of mostly bodyfat I assume (that's another question, what's your goal? current bodyfat percentage and intended weight and bodyfat percentage for the cut).


here is my current diet

830am oatmeal/eggs/protein shake
1030am chicken breast/white rice(im asian -_-)/vegetables
1230pm almonds/rice cake
1-215pm workout
230pm pwo shake
330pm steak/white rice/vegetables
530pm turkey breast sandwich/apple
730pm chicken breast/vegtables
930pm cottage cheese ( gross )


training is fine
if your goal is losing BF its all about diet, you cant out train a bad diet(i tried to for years lol)
