OMG I agree this prep things are not moving like the did last prep part is my own fault my focus is not near what it was last go around. I am missing meals way more then I should and my cardio disipline is not consistant either. If I am not ready to show in June then I am not ready there is always contest later in the year but I will just have to requalify for Ontario's next year.
Anyone objecting to me pinning this? I know we have a lot of pinned threads, but I think this would be a good and inspiring one to add to the list. I'm going to do it, but n2, if you think it just adds clutter, I'll understand if you unpin.
Hi there...I've been away from the site for awhile but I have done really well with my fitness level and I can finally see definition in my arms! Too bad my chest has gone away
I do have a question though...I'm wanting to cut the last 8-10lbs of body fat.
upper thigh 21"
I carry my weight in my thighs and bum, a bit in the stomach still...frustrating!! I train 6 days a week, schedule looks like this:
3 x week I'm doing circuit training for legs and abs - higher reps between 15-25 reps 2-3 sets. This is 2-3 times a week for 45-60 minutes (sometimes I do 90min)
2 x week Upper body circuit, but heavier (I mean I'm super setting, higher reps, very little rest inbetween. My front rows (with a bar on cable) are 40lbs, 50lbs, 60lbs 15, 12, 10 reps etc. chest press 20lbs dumbells (40lbs total) for 10 reps max.
4 Cardio is either HIIT running, Hills or Biking 20-30 minutes
1 long run 8-10 miles/week
tennis 1-2 times a week for 2 hours
On average I'm in the gym right now for 90-120 minutes
My question is on my macros and if I'm undereating.
I eat between 1250-1500 cals a week
120-160g carbs (average)
80-100 g protein
I seem to be losing 2lbs a week right now but sometimes at night I'm rediculously hungry. But I have had the problem of not losing any weight when I eat closer to 1700-1900 cals a day and train this hard.
Any advice? I want to be as healthy as possible, see the definition and just cut the last of the fat off and then up my calories (hopefully) to maintain. I also won't have the luxery of time to train this hard in a few months, but I will still work out 4-5 times a week for at least 60 minutes.
Any helpful words would be great!!
