Hi there everyone,
Been a religious member of this forum because of all the help from members and the threads. I'm currently having a dilemma about doing cardio and wondering if I should include it in my routines. I'm currently training 4x a week with weights and 1x a week just cardio and abdominals. and 2 days off.
My nutritional stats are tracked via myfitnesspal.
Background info: USED to be 185 20%bf
Now I'm about 172 seem a lot leaner from pics i've taken so I know i'm not 20% still, maybe 17 or 16. I want to get to about 165lbs and then bulk. Is cardio really necessary?
I eat 1600kcal a day with foods including: Protein shake 2x a day, oatmeal, 2% milk, natural kraft pb, brown rice, rice cakes, almonds, chicken breast and so on.
Approximate macro breakdown:
Monday - Saturday eat at 1600
Sunday eat at approximately 2800 (300 above maintenance from the calculations)
Do I really have to do cardio to speed up weight loss or am I just being impatient? I already feel like **** with the low carb and doing cardio will make me feel even ****ter.
Thanks for your input
