If anyone has the time, any addition, small or large, will help me a lot. My first MMA fight will be a month or so after my 18th birthday, so I'll be fighting in Sept. or October. I'm finishing up wrestling season, which ends at the end of February. My plan is as follows so far: This week - Mid March: "Cutting" phase; get from 11% body fat to 6% End of March - Mid July: Strength phase, focus on building mass and strength I'm 5'11" and about 156 pounds. I have great technique but I seriously need to get bigger, especially since I'll be around 146 lbs. when I get down to 6% body fat. My goal is 160 pounds at 6%, but I think it might be a little unrealistic to put on 14 or 15 pounds of muscle in 15 weeks. If I am training MMA at an average of 2-3 hours a day, 5-6 days a week, and I want to lift weights to gain muscle, what should my calorie intake look like? Proteins, fats, carbs? I'm thinking of doing the 3 days on, one day off thing, to avoid putting on an excessive amount of body fat. I know I should eat a lot, but how much? Also, I know this is more a conditioning thing, but I'm aware it might be a little much cardio to expect gains. I'm planning on cycling my training; around the peak of the strength phase, for about 4-6 weeks, I'll cut down on MMA to several short, intense 1 hour sessions of pure sparring. I'll also roll and spar relatively hard, and I'll avoid long, 30-45 minute grappling matches (which I am notorious for in my gym ) So, if someone could please give me a good plan for eating, so that I can get the most out of the *much* needed strength phase, I'd appreciate it. Oh, and here's the supplements I plan on taking; let me know if anything here is B.S. or a waste: -CytoSport CytoGainer whey protein weight gainer -CytoSport muscle milk (for the casein, before bed) -BSN NO-Xplode -BSN CellMass Plus, for general health, -One A Day Active Multivitamin -CLA and/or Flaxseed Oil Thanks!
