I’m a 16 year old power lifter. I’ve been training for around a year in weight training, it wasn’t anything serious to be completely honest. I did 5x5 for 6 months while I played rugby. Now, I want to be be serious about powerlifting, I’m currently doing Jonnie canditos 4 linear progression program, I don’t do any cardio (I am a power lifter after all… ) and my nutrition could be improved. And I plan on making it far better that what it is now. I plan on doing a bodybuilding sort of diet, not as strict as the whole plain chicken and rice sort of thing, I don’t want a single digit fat percentage. However I do want to lose around 5% bodyfat (I’m roughly around 20%).
So the plan is I eat around 5 meals a day, one every 3 hours . Eating around 190g (1g per pound of bodyweight) of protein a day with veg and clean carbs such as some sort of potatoes and rice. I’d rather not do too much cardio, as I just don’t enjoy it too much, I know it’s important, but I want to be sustainable in what I’m doing. So I might add it in later on, if I want to lose a little more fat.
I currently take animalpak and omega (one pack each a day).
In summary, I’m just looking to be pointed in the right direction. I’m fairly new to this, and I would really appreciate the feedback!
