How easy is it to work out the balancing if your diet,the % of carbs/protein/fat? Is it fairly straightforward?
Yeah pretty much mate. For cardio start working some hill sprints in once or twice a week. They are hard but so much better for your aerobic fitness than 30 minutes jogging. At the gym, get your technique down on squats, dead lifts and bench press then hit a weight you can just about do 5x5 on for each. Strength gains will be excellent and it'll help burn fat quicker as will the sprints.Nice one cheers.
I'm gonna try to lose around half a stone ish pre season starts in couple of weeks. So as a guideline on days of cv shall I not worry to much bout the carbs and then on days of weights workout a little less carbs more protein?
Porridge on a morning.I know its not healthy, but to lose a few lbs quickly, it works (for me anyway). The Paul McKenna diet is basically eat what you want but chew your food and eat as slowly as possible. By doing this you get full much quicker and you find yourself leaving a lot of your food that would normally have been stuffed down your throat and finished within minutes. When you are full, you stop. If you are hungry again in an hour or two, you eat again and so on. I lost 3lbs a week on it for six weeks eating what I normally eat (Junk food) but I went on holiday and it all went tits up lol. I now want to lose about 30lbs but don't want to do it again though even though it works because I want to get away from junk food which I've eaten my whole life. I want to eat clean food but it's really hard with me being such a fussy eater.
@Screech your username indicates a balletic bent, you are advocating ballet to this lad, yet on the [MENTION=636]Buff Orpington[/MENTION] thread you state you are not a ballerina!!I would recommend diet and a regular stretch/ballet class... strenghthens and tones.. restores flexibility and a good core muscle workout..
