I'm 6'2", 87-88kgs. I don't want to do a drastic weight cut and compete any lower than 80kgs. I want to compete at either 80 or 82. However this is months away. In the meantime I want to continue gaining strength, for which is may be necessary to gain weight. I've read the FAQs, I know it is extremely hard if not impossible to lose just fat. However I get the impression that if you're only making a small weight cut, there'll be less muscle breakdown as a percentage than there would be for more drastic cuts. In any case I want to maximise the percentage of weight I lose as fat. If possible I'd like to lose 2-3kgs as much of that being fat as possible. Problems: Based on the FAQs, I can't work out how I can go about this, given my cardio sessions are basically my 90 minute skills classes. I read the FAQ thread with a long lists of ways of losing fat (HIIT, LSD, fasting, tapering off carbs etc) and their efficacy and 'risk'. I didn't see anything in there that analysed the type of cardio I do. Within the 90 minute class there are HIIT periods, moderate duration moderate-hard periods, aerobic, anaerobic, times spent holding the mits are also very active times. But you see my point. Given that I do 2-3 of these classes per week, and 3 weight sessions as well, I eat like a beast. I have gained 14kg (30lbs) since March, I was 9% bodyfat before I gained this weight. Not sure right now, but I am not 'flabby'....yet. I'm very happy with the % of my weight gain that has been muscle, but obviously I've gained fat as well. I couldn't guess what percentage, but I'd hazard somewhere between 3-7kgs. Given my caloric needs, and style of cardio, what options are there for me to try to drop a couple of kgs, as much of it being fat as possible, without losing strength? What can I do to decrease the fat to muscle ratio of weight that I gain?
