I'll try and address some of this:
Ok cheers for the replies guys.
I do think my diet needs some tweaking, as I feel like I'm plateauing. I'm having one egg currently for breakfast, so I might up my fats in breakfast and decrease the carbs slightly.
ONE egg? Unless that's an ostrich egg, you can do better. If, like me, you struggle with eating a large, solid breakfast in the morning, you could always just drink a protein shake.
and cut down those carbs!
Definitely keen for some feedback on my routine, I know it does look like a lot, and I train hard when I'm doing it, I'm very aware of looking for the signs of over training, and to be honest I really don't feel them...
Olympic athletes overtrain, and it's super rare. Somewhere along the line the internet became polluted with people thinking they are overtraining, but the reality of it is they are just eating like $h1t. Charles Poliquin, who's coached about a zillion Olympic medalists believes he's only ever seen overtraining a couple of times. Don't worry about it, just make sure you're eating properly.
but I really try focus on my form, so my weights aren't that super heavy, but I'm not that super strong.. so yeah.
heavy is relative mate, don't worry, if you train properly you'll surprise yourself at how much stronger you're getting.
I know I'm definitely doing a lot of exercises but my theory is that I'm looking for anaerobic exercise for weight loss, not a routine that is going to bring me lean mass gains (yet). I might change up to that 4 day split workout and bring in some HIIT on the bike.
that's not a bad theory, it's called circuit training and it works great for fat loss, but the effectiveness depends on the exercise selection. Big exercises like squats and pull ups will work, but a circuit with a load of different curls and shoulder raises won't cut it.
As for the water, I know I drink a $h1t, I literally have a 1.25L bottle of water with me all day, and am constantly refilling it, as soon as I wake up until I go to sleep and even in my sleep! But my pee is still a light yellow, so I think its fine. I know for sure that I'd look leaner if I drank less water, but that doesn't bother me yet.
meh, if you're thirsty, then drink. Don't sweat the small stuff...
I'll spend some time putting together a 4 day split routine based on the above link and post here it later on and see what you guys think.
by all means, but remember that fat loss is 80% nutrition so you might want to give a bit more info on your diet too
