Hi! I am a 39 year old
guy and my stats are 5' 11" tall I weigh 225 pounds and am around 22% body fat
with 36 in. waist, 48 in chest.
Not ripped, but no belly
hanging over the belt. I am pretty strict with my diet and have a pretty good
balance of carbs and protein (I think). I supplement with a protein powder drink
after my workout because I am getting older and don't recover the way I did 20
I currently workout 4 days a week. 30 minutes of weight training followed by 30
minutes of cardio (intense elliptical). Monday and Thursday is chest, shoulders
and triceps. Tuesday and Friday is back, biceps and legs. Abs worked in through
out (more planks and ball work than actual crunches). Wednesday off, and an
active weekend with my family.
In the last year, I have dropped 20 pounds and look pretty good, but I have
plateaud. I have even gained a couple of pounds from my plateau which I am
thinking is muscle. I am trying to figure out where to go from here.
break my weight training out to 3 days a week (M-W-F) and do cardio 2 days (T-Th)?
Or maybe the reverse? Or should I stick where I am? Thoughts
