Hi I am new to this site and I am in a bodyfat cutting period in my training in order to prepare myself for the upcoming football season. I am not really concerned about getting into contest shape, but would like to be arond 10% just so I can move well. I am a tight end. I am currently 6-4 and 240 pounds. I am around 18 percent bf, but that is a guess. I am a 36 3/4 inches around the waist but I have discovered I can get much leaner, probably around a 31 inch waist . My upper body is big as well asl my limbs. I just seem to carry my fat in the midsection. My arms are 17 and torso is 47. I am starting my cutting slowly so I don't lose much muscle. I do a 4 day split, Monda is shoulders/traps/abs, tuesday is back/bis/calves, wednesday off, thursday is chest/tris/abs, friday is legs/ calves, and saturday and sunday I am off as well. Every week I will add something as far as speed and agility. My meal plan right now is as follows:
Meal 1: protein bar, 20 oz milk
Meal 2: 4 eggs, ezekiel bread(2) or ezekiel tortilla, 1 cup lf or ff cottage cheese. ketchup
Meal 3: ezekiel or ww bread(2) luncheon meats( really lean), 20 oz. ff milk, fruit
Meal 4: 50g of some lean meat, salad with ff dressing or veggies
Meal 5: 3 eggs, luncheon meats, 2 slices ezekiel bread or ww bread, 1/2 cup lf or ff cottage cheese
What do you guys think of this for an athlete trying to get ready for next season. I am also taking creatine monohydrate, and ZMA. I plan to add maybe glutamine to the mix and some whey protein. I am also going to take my second cycle of M1T after I cut some fat and I can tell a difference in muscle.
