    How much volume 5 months out


    Fellas,

    I am 5 months out from my next contest, and hoping to figure out how much volume is enough without muscle wasting. I am not eating low calorie, but relatively clean for being on a Ship. US NAVY Here. I cook my own meals when I am off work. I am 6-1 233 give or take a few. I will be doing Cardio early am empty stomach, about 3 months out. I do Navy Physical Training 3 times a week. I train afternoons about 5-6 days a week.

    I do 3-4 exercises 3 sometimes 4 sets each. Not counting warm ups. I always shoot for 10-12 reps, but sometimes doing heavy squats or deads I do 6, but only on last set or two. I am interested in getting feedback on how much volume others incorporate pre contest.

    I am 34 years old.
    I will be starting a PH Cycle precontest about 8 weeks out. I will increase intesity at that point as well due to being able to better hold onto the muscle.

    don't wana hi-jack your thread man but as you get closer to ur comp, do u do fasted cardio daily?

    And if so, is it low intensity or high intensity?

    I don't compete so i'm afraid i can't help you out about the pre-contest stuff.. well beyond me for another 6 years or so.

    I will be doing fasted cardio daily. I will be doing 45 minutes on either the stairmill, or treadmill depending on how much fat I have on me to lose, and how fast its going for me.
