Just a suggestion...you might want to replace the whole wheat pasta with a green veggie in meal 5. That's a little too late in the day to be eating starchy complex carbs. Since you're cutting, you may want to consider cutting out the pasta and wheat bread totally.

Also, how long have you been cutting? It seems that to drop another planned 4% body fat you're going to have drop your calories way too low to maintain or support lean muscle mass. If you're at a plateau you might want to try something like carb cycling. Do you currently cycle your calories on a daily basis?

How long do you plan to cut? Just until you reach 9% or do you have a deadline?

Also, just a suggestion, you may want to cut out one of the weekend HIIT days and give your body a total day off to rest.

Other than all that, things look good! Nice detail on the plan and diet too!

Good luck! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Been cutting off an on 5 months. Started at 200lbs and god knows what bodfat and worked my way down. I have ate at maintenace and over my maintenace off and on to give my body a rest.

How long do you plan to cut? Just until you reach 9% or do you have a deadline?
I don't really have a deadline I guess, I need to set one. I do know the weeks I ate over maintenace I would feel guilty so I don't think I am ready to bulk mentally just yet.

I have thought of trying out carb cycling, having a HIGH , LOW and NO day. The only problem is I get lightheaded if my carbs are extremely low and my energy levels go into the toilet so I have never really digged cutting carbs.

As far as my current lifting routine .. I am wanting to re arrange it to where I do legs twice a week to I can get them to catch up with the rest of my body. Do you think that would be to much to do legs twice in one week?. Or just keep current routine and do a blitz on legs once a week?

something like this:
Current routine:
Monday: legs/abs
Tuesday:Chest/Tricepts
Wednesday: HIIT
Thursday:legs/abs
Friday: Deltoids/traps/forearms,Back/Biceps
Saturday:HIIT
Sunday:HIIT

You can successfully bulk if you eat clean. Tuf's journal is proof of that. I think she increases fat by half a pound over an 8 week bulk! Don't be too afraid to bulk!

I would highly recommend you NOT carb cycle in the way you mentioned. Having zero carbs can be dangerous, especially if you get light headed with no carbs! Check out Fireproof, Schless, and soccerchick's journals. They all are carb cycling. You may have to go back several pages, but they all went into detail on how to plan it.

Three days is not enough time for the to recover before hitting them again. You could do calves this way, but not quads and hams. It's also unlikely that you'll gain a whole lot of mass while cutting.

I'd highly recommend that you set a time frame for your cut. Then start a squeaky clean bulk to minimize fat gain. You have to remember that the more muscle mass you have, the easier it is to cut muscle.

I think it's time for a bulk, actually. 5 months is a long time to cut. But, it's your decision. You know your body and mental state. Do what's best for you!

Again, you really should take at least one day off to let your body recover.

Welcome to ABC, Ace. It looks like Nozzle is giving you great advice! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Regarding your above question, I would replace the bread with oats or a sweet potato.
