Just a couple of thoughts I had as I’m 1 day away from enterring the transition phase.
My plan is to phase in HSM’s as the plan says and work my way up to maintenance (around 2800 kcal) over the 2 weeks transition, and then spend a week or so at maintenance to get my metabolism up to speed before looking at a general weight loss diet of aropund 500 kcals under maintenance.
During the transition my calories will still be fairly low so would I be right in thinking to do just some steady state cardio rather than HIIT during the transition stage, until I am back up to higher calorie intake so I do’nt overtrain while my calories are still low?
Am I best reduing these in the transition phase, coming off them altogether for a certain amount of time or keep them going? Do they maintain their effectiveness if not phased in and out every now and then, or are they detremental to me either?
Thanks for any well educated advice.
