He and the wife are both coaching the Huntsville Highschool Powerlifting team. I met him at one late last year that was in our area and I sat with them. He said he may only enter one more PL event.

Iambigmike66 is off to a bad start
Default Hello all...

I am a 26 y.o. (about to be 27) from CT. I am of the larger frame or build as some would call it...I am 6'6" 275 with a 20% body fat. Lets just say I got a little to work with. I am a power lifter and a runner (I know those dont mix but I run marathons for fun, and in decent times too!) but I need to trim down. My knees are taking a beating!

This is my first time taking Animal and I am mixing it with Gaspari Superpump 250 & SizeOn along with general BCAA's, aminos and some raw creatine. I am looking to get down to a solid 245-250 but keep my strength. I lift 5-6 times a week (varying heavy, light, kettlebells, etc) and I run 5 days a week (equalling 15-20 miles).

The biggest draw back and my biggest issue is diet. I need the cals and carbs to keep this big body going throughout the day.

Any ideas on diets that wont negate the purpose of taking Animal cuts and help me shed weight at the same time?

You said you maintain at about 4000. Any thought of eating maybe around 3000 on non-training days and 4000 on training days? This would give you about a pound deficit each week and still give you more fuel on training days.

How do you feel on days when you eat around 3000?

I feel ok...its once i break that 3000 mark when it gets tough. When I keep it around 3000 I usually use supplemenation at first to make up for the difference while my body adapts.

hey mike enjoy the forum!

and as far as your runnin maybe its a little odd to see a huge man ran a marathon but i got a really good friend that is 6' 4" 240 and he's doin the same thing. he's not quite a power lifter yet but he's workin on it. so you got company out there even if its miles away and you don't know him. good luck with the diet!
