im looking to get into a seriously hardcore training routine, and cut alot of excess pooundage, and show all the muscle i know i got
if you could set one up for me itd be much appreciated, thx
hey there..I'd be glad to help you.
First off with you being in construction and working out at night for a couple hours means you are burning at least 1,000 calories a day just from exercise...not to mention the basal metabolism of at least another 2,000 calories. To be completely honest...I think what you need to do is the following to achieve your goals:
Cut the carbs out after you get home from work. After work, no more carbs except from vegetables. I know the pasta at night is good, but you have to eliminate that from your diet if you want to cut up and burn that fat off. Also right before bed start drinking a protein shake or eating cottage cheese to help keep ur metabo up during the day. Also try to drink caffeine (coffee or tea without sugar, or take atrophex/jet-fuel which are caffeine based fat burners). With all that in mind, make sure you take in a lot of EFA (essential fatty acids) to speed up ur metabo and help burn fat and keep your blood vessels clean. EFA's come from HDL fats like olive oil, eggs, fish, flax, avocados, etc.
After the diet in place, you should also begin to start doing focus training. An example of focus training would be -
Monday - chest + abs
Tuesday - back + abs
Wednesday - Legs
Thursday - Shoulders + abs
Friday - Arms + abs
Saturday - Abs
Sunday - TOTAL REST
Also make sure you're getting PLENTY of sleep (at least 8 hours) each night. IF you arent that can definitely hinder your progress. Also make sure to drink at least 1-2 GAL of water a day (preferably ice water to help boost metabo further).
Ok hope this helps man, good luck,
If you feel like donating, It's always appreciated.
Thanks, and good luck BE SAFE!
