Help With Burning More Body Fat!
New to this forum & site & new-ish to the world of weight training.
I'm hoping to shed more body fat to expose more of a defined/ripped look.
I'm currently doing the P90X workout plan & into my 7th week of it. Since this time, I've noticed a visible difference in size & muscle mass but I'm struggling to shift a bit more body fat.
I'm 5'8, weight 11.2 stone & I'm an athletic build. My body fat is currently 17.7% but I'd like this down to around 8 or 9%. Is my BMI % different to that of my body fat %? Sorry if that's a stupid question. As I say, my diet is the new thing to me & I want to get it right as I know how important it is.
I started out at 10.1 stone but have since gained around a stone in weight but changed this into lean muscle.
I'm happy with my weight but want to drop body fat.
My question is, do I put on more weight to change this into muscle or stick with my weight & concentrate on sculpting the muscle I have?? What I'm hoping to achieve is a defined/ripped/carved look, that of Brad Pitt in Fight Club.
I'm seeing results but feel the body fat is not going.
I eat well & stay away from all the wrong foods (processed, fatty etc) I have a high Protein based diet & I work out with weights 3 times a week & the rest of the week is broken down into doing Yoga, Plyometrics (jump training), Kenpo. All of these being high CV workouts.
My meal plan works like this:
Porridge with Skimmed Milk
2 x scoops of Protein shake
MID MORNING SNACK
Yogurt, Protein bar & a Banana
Tuna or Chicken salad with New Potatoes, plenty of veg & a Light salad dressing
MID AFTERNOON SNACK
Oat bar or some form of Carb intake. Half an hour before workout 1 x banana
Grilled chicken or grilled tuna steak with veg
