The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    A cut from above

    Stats and Numbers:
    Age:16
    Weight: 193-195
    Bodyfat estimate: 15-18%
    Height:5'6"
    Lifts:
    Bench:285X1
    Squat:425X1
    Dead: Been untested for quite some time but 315 for reps
    Time lifting: 3 years
    History: I've been bulking up since dec. of 2005 until now. I've gained some quality muscle mass as well as some fat. I'm still a natty.

    Cutting plans:
    My calorie intake will be 2350. I was thinking doing 40% protein 40% carb 20% fat. Making protein intake be 235g a day. Carbs will be 235g as well. fat being 53g.

    Cutting goals:
    I don't need or desire a six pack I just want to get into the range of 10-12% bodyfat. With no strength or muscle loss.

    I need to know what you people think. I am very open to suggestions as this is my first cut. PLEASE and thank you!

    EDIT: Also I only have 6-8 weeks to cut then its bulking time. Which basically mean I would like to get as lean as possible given the set timeframe.

    i think personally you will struggle to drop from between 15-18 down to 10-12 in just 6-8 weeks without loosing any strength. however you do have very good genetics and are strong as hell for your age. if you 15% it could be possibly if you 18% i dnt think so. also those fats seem awfully low. i myself have tried at the start cutting with fats around the 50g mark believe me having them higher really helps control my apetite. i woul;d definaly substitute some of those carbs for fats. get them over 80g a day.

    Understood and taken into plan: Hows this?

    40% protein 30% carbs 30%fat ?

    Making Carbs stand at 176g a day
    Making Fat stand at 79g a day
    Making protein stand at 235g a day.

    Also to add my routine will look like this: Should I throw in a rest day between legs and shoulders?

    Chest and bis
    Legs and calves
    shoulders and tris
    back and traps
    off
    repeat

    yeh i would throw in a rest day between legs and shoulders definatly. will you be doing any cardio. i wouldnt do any for the first couple of weeks if at all. see how your weight loss is at those cals first i think you may loose enough weight just like that. Is their a reason why you are just wanting to cut down for 6-8 weeks. is it just for the sake and a test to see how you find it as its your first cut. seems like a sensible approach actually

    Accually there is a reason. But that reason would be frowned upon. So I'll just leave it at that. It is partically just a test cut to see how I can do.

    Thanks alot man. My pain and hell starts tommorow. I figure starting with a nice 6-8 week cut will give me a taste of what it is like to cut for a competition. Which I plan on doing early next year.

    good luck with your cut, gutz. you may strength may suffer a bit if you're trying to lose that much bf in such a short amount of time. shouldn't be too bad, though.
