In March of this year I decided to get in shape. I am 35, 5' 5" tall, and in March I was 165lbs @ 23%-27% BF. After doing a full round of P90X, followed by using Insanity for Cardio a few days a week to help maintain my weight, I have been sitting at 150lbs @ 17% BF for a few months. I am now on a mission to get as close to 10% BF as I can by Jan 1st (roughly 10 weeks). Yes I am really trying to see the six pack I can see buried under that lovely layer of fat on my stomach (this is the closest I have ever been to having one so really trying to get there).
So here is what I was thinking in terms of a workout schedule...
Monday: P90X Chest, shoulders, & Tripceps + Insanity's Cardio Abs
Tuesday: 1 hour Turbo Spin class at my local gym (the instructor is brutal haha)
Wednesday: P90X Back & Biceps + Insanity's Cardio Abs
Thursday: 1 hour Turbo Spin class at gym
Friday: P90X Chest & Back + Insanity's Cardio Abs
Saturday: Insanity's Pure Cardio workout
A few questions I have....
1. Is reaching 10% BF (means losing 7%) in 10 weeks realistic?
2. Does my workout plan seem like one that will get me to where I want to be in that time frame?
3. Any suggestions on supplements that "might" be needed in order to hit my goal?
4. and knowing that with any weight/fat loss the larger numbers come off faster than the last few, what would be a realistic 5 week goal to shoot for?
Any and all suggestions and feedback on workouts, foods, etc, would be greatly appreciated.
