hey guys whats up.
I was reading this article that i found browsing on the net about this bodybuilder's cutting phase. In his article he states that their is an offseason to his program and then their is a cutting phase for about 3 weeks.
Here is how it goes:
offseason: 1 cardio workout per week for 25min 50% intensity
week 1: 2 cardio workouts per week at 30min each at 55% intensity
week 2: 3 cardio workouts per week at 30min 60 % intensity
week 3: 4 cardio workouts per week at 35min 65% intensity
Anyways: i have a few questions about this and cutting in general.
Goals: I really want to have nice abs. But i don't want to have lean muscle. I want to have big arm muscles, chest, and just get big overall.
Question 1: After my 3 week cutting phase will i lose just fat and maintain my overal weight. I don't want to go any lower than 5'9 175lbs.
Question 2: How do i not lose muscle but lose fat. Is it all about high carbs/high protein with low calories or what.
Question 3: Can i still weight lift and if so, when would i fit my cardio sessions into my weight lifting schedule. I lift weights monday-friday with wednesday off.
How long would i do my cardio.
I know everyone is different. But can i kind some general advice on the CUTTING PHASE.
