first time cutting help
Hey guys,I just started spring break from college and am using my time at home to cut down on some fat weight I gained after a mini bulk diet. Before I left for school I got my BF% measured through water submergement at our schools kinesiology lab and am currently around 10% give or take a couple tenths of a point with most of my remaining fat being around my lower abdomen/hips. Ive been bodybuilding training for roughly around a year but have four years of football training and conditioning from high school. I plan on losing about a pound a week by cutting my caloric intake from around 2800 to 2300 keeping carbs down to around 120-130g a day with of course upping my protein and fat intake. I currently take Universal products mostly because a customer at my grocery store where I work at works at one of their distribution centers they have down there and hooks it up for a ridiculous low price but I am open to any supplement non-hormone relating. I am open to any suggestions on routines, diets or supps because I am here to learn as much as I can in order to achieve my goals. I just started John Meadows Mountain Dog Training and was thinking about fasted cardio in the morning while drinking BCAA's to prevent some muscle loss. Also was thinking of doing slow rate cardio after my workouts also after my post workout shake to further enhance fat loss or is that too much?Hope I can hear from some of you guys!
Current stats: Age:18
BF %: 10-11%
Target weight: 185-187
Supp Regimen: Animal Pak, Universal Iso Whey, Universal Casein Pro, Nature Made Fish Oil, Optimum Creatine Monohydrate, Universal Atomic 7, just ordered PES Alphamine as well.
Training Split: Roughly five days a week with a sixth day for extra cardio/ lagging parts such as calves and forearms

I like the fasted cardio and low impact cardio post workout. I used this last summer to cut up. Look into Purus Labs Fat Smack. It's getting great reviews and that would definitely help knock off a few extra lbs.

Maybe a few sessions of fasted cardio. Ultra low carb on rest days and higher carbs on lifting days having them post workout. Don't cut dietary fat too low. Awesome training program I have been reading his articles on tnation.

Cutting is all about getting in a caloric deficit at the end of the day. At 2300 cals you'll most likely be in a deficit, so the rest is making sure you get enough protein to maintain size during the cut. I'm prepping for a show right now with little to no cardio, so it's really up to you and how your body reacts the best. From personal experience, I got my best results by training with weights hard and maintaining a low carb/high protein diet. BCAA's are a great supplement to use during a cut. I'd recommend having a higher carb or calorie day once per week for a nice metabolism boost.
