Best time for cardio to preserve muscle mass??
01-12-2012 11:00 PM
I work security so I get a decent amount of walking in. Im 5 ft 7 on a good day.Im 25, when not training/ working im busy chasing my kids around.I dont have a six pack anymore but my stomach is flat and im roughly around 15% bodyfat at 243. I dont need to be shredded but I still like to look like I lift. Ideally I would like to be 12% at 250- 255 then I could cut 10-15 lbs of water to weigh in and bloat up to 260 and compete. We have 24 hour weigh ins so you have plenty of time to put the weight back on after you cut. Im just not willing to gain a lot of fat to be 255. So I want to gradually reduce fat while maintaining weight and increase muscle. I know its hard but I cant afford to lose strength along the way. Im benching 475 raw and I want the infamous 500 raw. My shirted bench is close to 650 and the increase in raw strength should help push me to 700.
