Yeah I was about to say with all the lifting you say you're doing sounds like you need some more cal intake man....1500 calories while lifting AND running? Jeeeeez. I'd be doing at least 2000-2200. You're not getting much nutrition at 1500/day with that workload. Your muscles burn more calories while rebuilding too.
You can never do too much cardio. But lifting does increase endurance. Before I started lifting I tried running to get into shape. I could barely make it 10 minutes and it absolutely killed me. I'd be tired all day. Now I can run almost 20 minutes and fully recover from it within 5 minutes and still have energy the rest of the day. I think I could do 30 if I wanted to. Lifting as much as you can and with only 30 second breaks inbetween sets is almost as effective as pure cardio.
Edit: Oh and MAJOR props on losing 110 lbs. That's fucking awesome!!
Well i started my diet before i weighed myself, but when I weighed the first time I was 6'3 @ 362 60% body fat. Now I am 6'3 250 28% body fat. But If i had to guess my starting weight.. I was 375-380.what were you and what are you now?
lol I'm scared of the bikes!Seven miles on a mountain bike is about an hour of cardio. I just did it yesterday (first time ever) and I thought it beat the shit out of staring at the wall on a stairmaster.
