So I am a bit fat. I need to trim down. I have been carb cycling, I know its mainly diet.

I was curious what you guys do cardio ratio to / weight ratio. I don't want to overtrain and be tired always. I was thinking weights 2x a week (full body major groups hit) and cardio (sprints, jogging and rowing) 3x a week (20 mins sprints, 30 minute jogs and 20 minutes rowing). On the sprint days I won't do any weights.

Will be on test 250 week / EQ 500 week for 12 weeks.

This routine is totally made up and would like some input..

fastest way:


eat as little as possible, cut out all carbs.

do as much cardio as you can.

thats the fastest way, not necesarly the easiest.

the less cardio you do and the more carbs you eat the longer itll take.




100% accurate IMO

I like a lot of your advice. What type of lifting would you do while cutting? How many sets per exercise? Total sets per body part. How many exercises per body part? What rep range for various exercise? How many times per body part a week? Once, twice, or three times? I realize using a 3 on an one off example doesn't flow with a 7 day calendar week. Just like to hear other view points.

ripped fast... way easier to 'sprint' the weight off if you have a lot too lose... shouldn't run a caloric deficit for more than 12-16 weeks as a natty IMO... (too much impact to muscle mass)

I did something similar in high school. I quit the track team and drank gain weight shakes  lifting weights. I looked like a perma bulker and decided I missed the track team going back to the team. My coach saw me and he said you look so fat. I thought I was looking buff. I was so pissed off I ran and did bodyweight exercises like mad for two weeks and I lost 10 pounds of fat. I know many will say it's not possible but I did it.

No, I believe it.
There's a lot of things our bodies could do in HS that they could never do now.

for my 2 week fat-loss program i ate a legit 800 cals per day and i ran twice a day for 20-30 min for each run, and this was a true hard run, and not a "jog"

I was already drinking probably 1600 calories in gain weight drinks that I stopped. I also ate less and the runs were twice a day. Hard 3 miles before school then track practice with body weight exercise. The fat just came off quick.

As every natural knows without drugs some muscle is sacrificed getting lean. Using drugs everything you try in the weight room gives results. I often say drug users like to give advice when juicing. When they stop due to legal, health or financial reasons they can't give advice because the muscle is gone.

thx man, feeling humbled.
 
well, first i dont care about the training schedule fitting into a calendary week.i just go by feel.

the fastest way is to train every bodypart once every 5 days and then repeat the whole thing with no day off, but this will absolutely lead to overtraining eventually.esp a natty.
but the metabolism will be insanely speed up,atleast for me,it is.days off the gym i can feel how metaboism slows down a bit, no question.

but thats just the fastest way, i didnt say itd be the smartest or healthiest way Grin

now something sane would be 2 days train,1 day off,2days training,1 off, repeat.

i believe in working only one muscle group a day, it puts much less stress on the nervous system, you recover quicker,and get to work the muscle more intense,or precise,so to say.

i alternate one week "heavy" training, one week"light" training, sometimes i alternate withing days.

id do the very basic stuff, no matter whether diet or "bulking".

warm up, then base compound lifts first, pyramid up in weight, then down.something like 5-10 sets, depending on peds or no ped and energy levels.
then followed  by "isolation" movement, 5 sets, and then a machine of prefence or cables,5 sets.

basicaly, 3 exercises, about 15-20 sets total.i go near failure on all of them Cheesy

oh, and for reps, i try to do 12-15 on everything, but do go as low as 6 for some sets and as high as 20-25on others.the low andf high reps sets are maybe 5-6 total.

with no peds, frequency or number of sets is best decreased by,say, 30%.
for a natural athlete(which you are not, even though you look like one), diet works bit different, but you wouldnt listen anyway, so ill just spare my words.i have been nice 6% when clean and know how its done, and kept wuite some size.you may continue your diet for 12 year old girls and never improve an iota ever, even on gear, as it was already the case.

now for enhanced athlete, fast is the best way, why waste time, gear will greatly boost recovery and energy levels and prevent muscle from melting away, ped athlete can simply crash the calories, eat plenty protein and have no worries about muscle loss.everything he will lose will be fat and water.no reason to go slow.

Thanks for taking the time for your view point. I'm at a point in my life where I want to do a lot of cardio. I find that in my 50's it's hard or next to impossible to lift heavy when you are going for hard runs. Try ripping a hard 5 mile run and see how much is left for leg day the day after.

Witnessed quite a few guy's (lifters to make their class bwt and also BB'ers to booster their ego)  cut down on body fat and still keep the same lean muscle or even improve on it, with some slight increase in size. All without the help of chemical engineering. This eating style has also been used by athletes, who must preform and keep the energy level up for their chosen sports.

They never felt the need to cut calories to any drastic level, where hunger was always present. Why do so, that's not needed. Most all had a full stomach and a feeling of being well fed. Their collective calorie level was well above the basic 2,700 to 2,800 for the body's maintenance and daily repair requirements (mean average..depending on individual metabolism).

Their eating habits increase the fats and oils, meat, fish and fowl. With the restrained use of veggies (very large salads mostly or a good large anti pasta......my choice). No citrus of any kind.  Their was reduction in carbs  (both the good & bad kind). First at 100 grams in a 24 hour period. If that proved non productive or too slow, than carbs were dropped to 60 grams a day. 40 to 30 grams were the lowest allow. I know some BB'ers have used zero carbs per day. for a week or two, but that can do more harm than good to the health of the internal organs. Most all would have one cheat day per week (a few 2 days on the weekends) , where whole grains, pizza, etc where eaten. Of course, in moderation.

If feeling the urge for cardio, than would suggest interval training, rather than the long marathon style bouts of extreme running or anything else along those "endurance" lines. Which in the long view, can give even muscle wasting results, if the body is on a very low calorie intake. Some surprising studies suggest, that even at rest (away from the gym) fat is still used at a higher rate (burned) from serious interval efforts

Workouts would tend to be generally the same, with the normal rest between sets is 90 seconds. And between exercises, 3 to 4 minutes. Keeping the pace fast and with serious intend, as any workout should be.. Good Luck.

Che might be on to something.

Might also add, everything done in the gym, with the aid of drugs, does not (or never in a few cases) assures any kind of outstanding result, good or bad. Only kidding yourself if thinking drugs are the magic cure all for size and strength. Good Luck.

thanks man

i was trying to do it all at that time lol

i was doing bp comps, and also doing some print work (physique modelling if you will) and also training to compete in dual-athlons (like triathlons with running and biking but without swimming) so i lifted about 5 days per week concentrating on benching with a little lat work, and then i ran most days of the week

my running was anywhere from 2 to 5 miles a day and i'd run the 5 milers at a moderate pace (base training) while running the 2-3 miles at a very hard and competitive pace (AT threshold level training)

I'm doing a lot of cardio now. Trying to get into decent running shape for a 5K in May or June. My 30 something niece and nephew run in 5K to half marathons and I told them find a 5K in May and I'll run it with them. My nephew said something about, "No shame in walking when you get tired during a race. A lot of guys your age do it."  In my youth I could string 5 minute miles together but those days are gone forever. I just hope  I can string 3 seven minute miles at my age and hope to have him sucking wind behind me.

Don't you find that hard runs kill your strength especially in your legs? A runner who lifts told me that you can't be a good strength athlete and a good endurance athlete. He said in effect,  Use light to moderate weight and push your muscular endurance limit and you will find yourself ripped. You're not going to run 5 miles and do hard intervals expecting a max single in the deadlift the day after.

Thanks for the reply. I have always struggled trying to do both running and lifting. It's give and take so to speak. For me, lifting going great means running stinks. Running going fantastic then lifting stinks. Just a few times have both gone well with me. It's either one or the other.
