I am looking to start cutting shortly and I was after some advice on the plan I have so far.
A few stats: age 24. I have been training for about a year and have one cycle under my belt. I'm not sure of my exact bf measurement, but I would guess it's about 25%
When I have cut in the past. mainly Ketogenic diets, I have found that if I keep the carbs too low without a re-feed, after about a week, workouts become an absolute pain and I feel like my metabolism drops considerably, so I have decided to go with a CKD type plan with re-feeds every 7 - 10 days. It will look something like this: Calories will be at about 1500 - 1800/day, protein at about 200g+/day, carbs will be kept very low (up to 20g/day) and fat will also be kept low. Workouts will consist of full body glycogen depletion on days 1 & 2, whatever cardio (HIIT) and workouts I can fit in thru days 3 - 5, and then a high intensity workout day 6 ahead of the re-feed and possible anabolic re-bound.
The meds I have available are: Sustanon, M1t, t3, clen and ECA.
Although I have androgens to hand, I'm not sure if I should consider using any of them initially. Although I want the cut to be as fast and effective as possible, my thinking is that with a bf so high, the weight should come off pretty easily without that much help, so I should probably leave the androgens for a few months down the line.
I plan on running clen and ECA throughout the cut, alternating each every two weeks.
I am not overly concerned with loosing a little muscle, so I have been toying with the idea of a low’ish dose of t3 (50mcg/day), without any androgens, in the hope that it will keep my metabolism ticking over while on the CKD - Is this a good idea? Will the muscle loss be worth the additional increase in metabolism?
I also remember reading somewhere, someone suggesting taking m1t but only for the re-feed. This was in the hope that it would boost the anabolic rebound and that you would pack on a small amount of muscle each week (at least put back any lost throughout the week). Anyone have any opinions on this? I like the idea…. but would there be any major HPTA effect from taking say 10mg (5mg 12hrs apart) of m1t once a week?
Any advice/suggestions appreciated.
