Another Blasphemous "Help Get Lean" Thread (…but for good reason)
Second time on starting strength. First time was brought to a stop by elbow tendonitis from squatting. Fixed it up with ecstatic stretches on a flex bar.
In the last three months I've worked back up to (all 3x5):
BW: 160 > 175
No cleans > box jumps instead
For professional purposes, I must have the leanest most banging'est body in ~6 weeks. No really.
Also, my elbow tendonitis is coming back (ahhhggggg it's so irritating!), so I want to give it a little time to rest before I get back into the heavy squatting. It seems I simply cannot low bar squat heavy 3x per week without developing it, no matter what I do with my grip.
So I'm thinking about doing a LeanGains style intermittent fasting program for 6 weeks. Here is my inspiration: http://rippedbody.jp/2011/10/08/lean...t-by-yourself/
Work out days: eat above caloric requirement, more carbs, 8 hour eating window.
Rest days: eat below caloric requirement, fewer carbs, 8 hour eating window.
Mon: Deadlift, Overhead Press,
Wed: Bench Press, Dips, Box Jumps
Fri: Squat, Chin Ups
My goal is to preserve strength while losing a few pounds. I will do reverse pyramid style with all of the above barbell excercises, meaning that I will do one heavy PR set of 5 followed by two progressively lighter sets of 8.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
I am presently about 15 to 18% BF and I'd like to get to 12. Yes, for the six pack. Is that possible in 6 weeks without losing much strength?
After my commitment, will I be able to just crank back up the calories and jump back into linear progression? Or will this somehow interfere with that?
Thank you all,
