    Cut? Bulk? Body Re-comp?

    May 16, 2018, 11:24 am
    Hey Scott,
     
    Long story short, I've attached a couple photos and was hoping for some advice. Currently I am 6'0" 205 Pounds and unsure on my body fat %. I've been trying to stick to the PPL program but with crazy work and kids schedules it can be hard so Im working on a modified schedule. My goal isn't to be a hard gainer but more or less tone out my arms/legs and work on getting rid of the "moobs" and back fat which is where I think the majority of my weight sits. Essentially the goal is muscle definition without trying to put on a ton of bulk. I love doing HIIT on a treadmil and dont mind steady state cardio as well. 
     
    I started eating cleaner during my first month of PPL and within the past 2 weeks started really tracking my Macros with a 210 G protein, 100-150 Carb, 50 G fat goals for my day. 
     
    Any tips,advice,critique on figure, eating, or workout advice would be great.
     
    Thanks!

    Hey man. By my calculations with carbs maxed at 150g, you are getting 1900 calories. For a guy that is 6 foot tall.. it seems low. It looks like you have a good amount of muscle mass so you don't want to go into a deficit that is too big and start burning through it unnecessarilly.

     

    I think the macros are good the way they are split, but I would add in more fat in particular. Go to at least 70g probably. Have you used the calculator on the @mealplan page to get an idea of what you should be aiming for while cutting?

     

    What program are you doing at the moment?

    Scott,

     

    Currently I am working through my second month of the PPL program. I have stuck pretty well to the program with some modified days here and there due to my lifestyle. (great program by the way!)

     

    Reference the meal plan, I have watched your video and used the calculator and in order to lose a little bit of weight while gaining lean muscle my calculations are

     

    Protein:220

    Fat:74

    Carbs:175

     

    To me the carbs seem high (but you're the expert) so what do you think?? Since im about 6' Tall Im pushing to get around 185 pounds while leaning out a little bit.

     

    Is there anything to the Macro calculations you would change knowing this or should I continue the above listed suggestions? If I continue with the PPL program with some HIIT treadmill work 2-3 days a week do you think I'll lose the weight I want while shaping the muscle I need?

     

    Thanks!
