Alright, in the past 19 months, I've been training for mass hoping to get big enough to play football. I managed to pack 37 lbs of muscle + 8 lbs of fat. Now I have exactly 7 months to pre-camp and 11 months to summer camp. The problems are various :
Body Fat of 16%
40 yards dash of 5.1
Weak@$$ strenght (BP of 245, Squat of 365 and Deadlift of 405lbs at a body weight of 207 )
Body Fat of 11%
40 yard dash of 4.7
Become a lot stronger.
1- Try to lose fat for 14 weeks (December) then work on speed/strenght until the season begins.
2- Train for speed and strenght while eating very clean to make sure not to put anymore fat.
3-Train for speed and strenght until May or June and then lose fat before the season begins.
4-Try to gain strenght and speed while trying to lose fat.
1- Sounds good, although I wont be in the best shape (strenght and speed wise) before March pre-camp.
2- Demands great discipline and more money for food/supplements.
3- I might lose a good amount of strenght and speed while trying to lose fat.
4- Is it possible? Gaining strenght while doing cardio and cutting the calories sounds impossible.
Option 1 sounds better although I'd rather do option 4 if it was possible. That fat is starting to bother me because of my fatty genetics. But everytime I tried to lose fat, I started to catabolyse muscle like crazy which kinda pissed me off.
Any inputs to get the best of each worlds?
