    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.
