Currently doing SSBMV and 6ft 79kgs (12% BF on scales) I’m trying to get back to race weight of 76/77kgs and am struggling.
I’m 49 so fat loss a tad more difficult at my age and am also doing a lot of body weight training (pull ups/press ups etc) I’m also not weight lifting due to gym closure and this has always helped me burn fat.
I am generally quite lean but have some excess stomach and waist fat that I want to lose, I think 2 to 3kgs is doable.
My plan is to add a fasted lazy Mountain-1 every morning, have a normal breakfast (porridge most days) and limit carbs during the day. Fuel the workout 2 hrs before with something suitable, my dilemma is do I fuel during the workout itself?
My rides are in the 1 to 1.5 hr range and I have been taking 1 bottle of beta fuel during them and tbh it feels great but I’m also taking a rego sachet after too.
I’m expecting a bump in ftp after next week’s rest but I have put on some weight during the first block (noticeable waist increase) which mabey water weight from weigh protein or fat, not entirely sure.
Anyone have any suitable advice? I know its a calories in vs calories out equation but I want to finish the plan strong but am really keen to shed the excess fat.
