Need some guidance. I’m currently 33 years old, 84kg, 181cm tall and sitting at approx.13% body fat.
I’m fairly fit and training for Alpinism. My targets at the moment is to get my AeT above 145bpm (its at 133 currently) and push my onsite grade to E3/Scottish Winter 4.
I’m a fair drive from the mountains (2.5hours) and have a 6 month old, but have a good home gym (incline trainer, 45degree garage bouldering wall etc).
My question is this…getting fitter, stronger, more efficient is one half of the battle but I feel I’m missing the other side. If I’m lighter I have less weight to haul up to summits.
According to Lattice training, a good BMI for me would be 20, which at my height would mean a drop of roughly 18kg. Im aware im carrying too much fat, but even if I trim to a healthy fat %…I’ve still got 10kg of extra muscle I don’t need!
So how do I solve this issue? If I continue my climbing based training and TFTNA max strength guidance, it seems to be promoting my body to hold on to muscle, not burn it down to something more efficient.
Anyone got any advice?
