I'm working on my late-spring training plan, and needed some advice on cutting. I've got about four weeks after I get back from my cruise until the swim club opens for the season, and I want to be ready for that speedo
I'm thinking four weeks for the cutting cycle? Is that right, too much, or too little? I know I'll need to cut out the dairy and the sodium, any other nutrition tips to focus on? I'm a bit confused about carb intake during this phase... I've read a lot about ketogenic diets during cutting, but wouldn't that cut into muscle with the higher levels of cardio?
Speaking of exercise, I know boosting the intensity and frequency of the cardio is a must... but how much should I change the weight training? I was thinking I would be on a three-day schedule during that period, working each body part HARD once per week (maybe twice a week for abs)?
Finally, any additional supplements I should be considering during this period? CLA? Glutamine? Hydroxycut? (just kidding on that last one Chappy)
