Ok, I need some help identifying whether or not my workout and dieting routine are proper for a cut I wish to begin.
I'm 6'1" and weigh 240 lbs. I'm anywhere from 15 to 20% body fat and hope to cut down to 10%. I have no way of telling exactly, but I know I need to cut.
As for my workout, it consists of a 4 day split. I've consulted about that here earlier and cut down the volume.
Bench Press- 4x6
Incline Press 4x6
Skull Crushers 3x12
Hack Squat 8x3
Leg Press 8x3
Pull-ups to failure x3
Seated or T-Bar row 8x3
Bent over BB row 8x3
Barbell Curl 8x3
Military Press 8x3
Seated Calf Raise 15x3
Standing Calf Raise 15x3
Dumbbell Shrug 8x3
I hit overtraining last week when my full body was sore and slept 12 hours a night but was still tired. On my off days I plan to do 30 min. of cardio, either steady state or HIIT depending on the mood.
As for meal plan, I'm consuming 2500 calories in a day, at 39% Protein, 36% Carb, 25% fat. Mind you, my metabolism is extremely slow. Should I increase/decrease carbs?
