i need some advice regarding my planned recomp.
i started a bulk last August last year, it started off clean but then became dirty during late Nov and early Dec (i failed to become strict and disciplined). by late december i started a 6 week shred using HIIT programs and modified warrior diet. (i had to fit it into 6 weeks since i was gona go on vacation)
the cut was a success from 187 lbs - 155 lbs in 8 weeks. the most ripped i've ever become out of any of my previous cuts. yes i know i've lost some muscle because i lost some strength (roughly -10% based on BP,DL, and Squat loads).
i then had a 5 week vacation, was able to lift occasionally, tried my best to keep a clean diet, and in the end i gained 10lbs. (which for me is pretty fair enough since i normally can't hold back from pigging out).
now that i'm back, i want to plan everything precisely. honestly i'm tired of bulking up and gaining more fat at the same time in the end, then spending too much resources and time on cutting back down. i want to make big progress while on a budget.
i've been reading around and i'm planning to do a recomposition at -20/+20
the thing is i've never really counted calories. i usually base my diet on hitting my macros correctly. but now i'm gona start counting!
attached is the macros and cal intake i plan to do for the first week and then adjust accordingly.
i'm also going to incorporate the P/RR/S training 4 times a week. i tend to plateau very easily and this system seems like the best way to go to gain quality muscle mass. as for the training i haven't done much research and planning for this one (yet) will try to post the template for this tomorrow.
i wanted my diet to be the key since i know i can push through any type of training.
supplement wise, since supps here are damn expensive and not that diverse, i can only make do with whey (ON or MET-RX) and a pre-workout (jack3d/1M.R.)
any advice, comments, negative or positive appreciated!
