This post is going to be long so bear with me:
I am a sophmore and a varsity hockey player, and am currently weighing in at 155 at 5'8" with 13-14% body fat. I used to be 5'7" 165 this spring at 19-20% bodyfat but was able to lose ten pounds of body fat. I started doing crossfit and the mix of cardio and lifting really helped out my body shape. However, I have been stuck in a rut trying to get down to 145 for hockey season (helps with speed and agility, no need to be big, also want to look better and leaner). Here is what I currently do. Can anyone suggest a way to tweak what I am doing to help me lose those last 10 pounds, I really want to look and feel good by hockey season (starts mid-November).
Typical Eating day:
1: 180 Calorie Chicken Apple Sausage, 1: 100 calorie low fat vanilla yogurt pack, 1 cup of sauteed spinach or carrots, 1 12oz glass of water
8-12 oz of meat (depends on school lunch, always chicken or some other lean meat, never read meat), 1 bowl of the vegetable dish (always roasted or steemed), 1 small dessert, 1 carton of skim milk. (I always skip the pizza and pasta entree).
Mid afternoon Snack (3pm):
Protein Shake: 1 scoop 170 calorie, 30g protein whey six star nutrition powder protein, 150 calories of "natural" peanut butter, 12 oz skim milk, ice in blender, I drink all of it
Usually some type of meat, either fish or red meat, around 300-400 calories, whatever the vegetable is for dinner, glass of water. Once a week I will have tater-tots or sweet potato fries for a treat, or we will go out to dinner.
I have completely cut out breads, pasta, grains, bagels, anything like that (I was addicted to them last spring and it was why I shot up to 165).
My Workout Regimen:
Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday: Lifting, 5x5 Bench, 5x5 deadlift, 5x5 military presser or barbell Over head press. then bicep and tricep workout, then calf-raises and shrugs.
Tuesday, Thursday, maybe Sunday: Cardio, usually 1.5 hr hockey practice.
Monday, Wednesday: High School Fitness Program at Crossfit Gym, squatting and sprinting and cleans.
I'm pretty athletic, can do 50 plus push ups, 80-90 situps, 6:40 mile, but I need to trim down. Does anyone see why I can't lose those 10 extra pounds? I'm no fitness expert so please help.
