hey guys im new and have a question.
I am currently 5'7 168...
i am content with my size. i dont want to get bigger, i am looking to get leaner and lose fat. What i am doing right now is watching what i eat, i am trying to consume about 1800-2000 calories a day. and i also burn calories through exercise. I do plyometrics X.. play basketball for 2-3 hours.. and weight lift.. and sometimes i might even do all 3 in one day.
what ive been doing currently is this, ive been taking a scoop of muscle tech whey protein after i weight lift or do plyo's.
i know that protein is used to build muscle, but i also learned that whey protein is used for muscle recovery, which is why i take it after plyo's too because i usually get shin splints because of plyo's and basketball.. and i want my leg muscles to recover and gain stronger to increase my vertical.
i am content with being my current weight i dont want to get bulkier or gain weight.. will i be safe doing my current routine? protein after weightlift / plyo's. if doing this will make me gain weight or get bigger i will stop.
pretty much i am maintaining a 1800-2000 calorie a day diet with regular activities.. i dont go ham to try and get bigger.. i just want to lose fat and get toned..
i just dont want the protein shakes im takng to make me bulkier..
