MAKING weight and being as strong as possible can be a dark art but here are some strategies that may help you progress and some strategies to avoid.

Energy In vs Energy Out

This is the primary factor that will determine your weight loss; in essence, your caloric intake is king. It is very important to establish how you are going to lose weight:

  • Lose weight through a dietary calorie deficit
  • Lose weight through high intensity exercise whilst staying at maintenance calorie intake
  • Lose weight through a calorie deficit and exercise
