It helps me to have a goal. Stay the same sounds, well, boring....
I had goals of decrease my mile time, I did and pushed too hard. Still recovering.
So my current goal is reduce body fat. I would like to loose 2% Body Fat.
Here is where input from professionals would help- I heard that reducing BF helps with loose skin. I also have been trying to increase definition. I am measuring BF by way of a scale. Not extremely accurate, but I should be able to see losing or gaining.
I am currently running 2-3 times a week, one of those for speed or intervals. And doing strength training by chin-ups, pull ups, and push ups. (3x week) And a recovery day.
My Goal has been to maintain weight and gain muscle mass. Reasonable I don't know. 2% BF would be 2% of my overall weight (67*.02 = 1.34 kg), right? So I would have to gain 2% back in muscle.
I have increased my protein intake. But I don't know what I should set my Calorie goal at.
Currently this month I have lost weight but my BF has been a slightly higher. :(
Looking for any input on a good way or even better way to approach this.
