The stats for the week are in. Despite getting decent results, I'm going to experiment with the Vince DelMonte method of cutting. Here are the results for the week:
|Mission 2 – Stats|
|February 3, 2008 thru May 13, 2008|
|Date||Weight||BF %||LBM||Fat Lbs||Chest||L. Bi||R. Bi||Abs||L. Thigh||R. Thigh||L. Calf||R. Calf|
While I agree with the concept of bringing your calories up to your maintenance level gradually to repair your metabolism, I am hearing Tom Venuto's response to me as I see these results. I've lost LBM 3 weeks in a row and that means I'm not losing fat fast enough. Thus, I am going to make a decisive and immediate change. Effective this week, I have my calorie target on my accountability log. The plan is:
I will begin with a carb rotation cycle of 3 days low, 1 day high. The low days will be 2250 calories. The high days will be 2700 calories. I will begin with a ratio of 45/35/20. I will reduce the carbs each week as follows:
|C %||P %||F %|
As I hit the lower carb percentage of 10% it will be very much like Metabolic Surge. Carbs will be around 50 grams each day at that point. The objective is to incinerate as much fat as I can as fast as I can. This is a routine used by Fitness Competitors as they cut down for a fitness contest. At the same time, I will be training as hard and heavy as ever.
