For weights, I stick with heavy weights, low reps. What builds muscle, will help to maintain muscle.

As a rule, my training remains the same...Most times i don't adjust my diet either..just increase my cardio.

Change one thing at a time and see what you can get away with. First clean up your diet and monitor progress, if not pleased, then add cardio, etc. I don't like changing everything at once.

i usually up the reps a lil bit. but thats mostly to give my muscle a change in routine

calories burned per cardio doesnt really mean anything! you have to be in your "target heart zone" to effectively burn fat!
and like jant said change up your diet! because thats like 99.9% of getting ripped up!

thanks for your advice guys.... target heart zone... your absolutly right i follow that when i do cardio. i stay at the high end of my zone but always in my zone. i know diet is everything it so hard to keep one i did it once in my life for like 6 weeks and it was hell... i give everyone credit who can keep a diet.
but i found just cutting down your portions work as well. i just eat very little portions (chicken, rice, pasta, suop, whatever) which keeps me hungry within an hour-hour and a half of eating. thats works for me for now.

I just change my diet and do more cardio, basically up my protein and down everything else. But keep the weights up or else I feel like I lose mass quick.

when i was cutting i was eating like 10-12x/day to achieve a greater thermogenetic effect! give that a try too!
05-01-2005, 11:16 PM #18
damb thats alot, do you count a protein bar or shake as a meal? how small was your portions?>
05-02-2005, 08:07 AM #19
