View Full Version : Cutting Schedule - What do you think?

11-05-2009, 08:54 PM
First off, I wanted to say Hi to everyone here, as this is my first post to the forum!

So, here is the deal. Back in June of 2008, I was 19, 5'5" and 178 lbs at about 24%bf. I caught a horrible flu of some sort which lead to me dropping about 3 pounds. That flu triggered a 4 month motivational diet, in which I lost nearly 30 pounds (most fat, some muscle). I began to hit the gym harder than I ever had the previous 3 years and am still gaining some positive results. However, my weight has gone up a bit. Some of it is muscle, but some is not, as my face has gotten a little fuller :/. It is now November of 2009. I am 19, 5'5" and 158 lbs and at 15-16%bf. I am determined to make it to 8-10%bf by January so I can start building more muscle for summer, with gaining the smallest amount fat while doing so (I believe it is called clean bulking?). I really want to maintain the muscle I have made the past 6-7 months. My cutting diet follows a 40/40/20 scheme and as for lifting, I am following the P/RR/S program. and I would really appreciate as much input as possible!

I'd say that diet looks spot on as long as you're still losing weight.
