    Former Jet Ski world Champ wants back into bikini shape

    My mom has been a athlete throughout her whole life and has been hounding me to set her up on a cutting cycle and training plan. She's kinda starting to get down on herself cause results in the gym are not coming as fast as they used to when she was younger. I was thinking of putting her on a clen/t3 stack and see how she takes to that.

    Her Stats:
    5"8.5
    50 years old
    175lbs

    Diet= moderatly low carb, and mostly chicken breasts, and red wine
    Cardio: Daily

    Any suggestions or advice would be awesome.

    Thanks,
    K.Dallas

    Lose the red wine & optimize the diet. Your results are only as good as the protocol you follow. I don't like the idea of playing around w/ self-medication w/ the existing program isn't already optimized. Sadly one part of getting older is learning to adapt to the changes in your body & metabolism. And to this point, I don't like the idea of setting the expectation of looking to self-medication to make up the difference. You can't then, rely on self-medication every time you want to see results.

    I'm in the same boat myself - I just turned 46 and I'm trying to cut 10 lb of lean muscle mass as well as my off-season fluff to compete in a lower category (bodybuilding to women's physique) and I am having to learn how to change up what I'm doing as the stuff I did the last 20 yrs ain't working so good anymore.

    I would suggest if you can, post up her diet. It may sound "clean" but it may be lacking in things that are actually hindering her from reaching her goals. The red wine is big fat red flag to me - even if it is intended to be just 1-2 glasses / nite for resveritol value. Also is she getting good quality fat and what are her total cals?

    Thanks, Here is some more info on daily activities and diet.

    Daily Diet:

    breakfast: turkey bacon, and 2 eggs
    Noon: Tuna, a cup of rice (white)
    3pm: Tuna , cup of rice (white)
    6pm: Chicken Breast, cup of brown rice
    9pm: Chicken Breast, Wheat pasta (usually no sauce)

    Daily cardio routine:
    Morning bike ride 3.2 miles

    Box Squats- Mon-wed- Fri

    I also set her up with a mild timed circuit to finish workout, consisting of assisted pull-ups, mason twist with med ball, jacobs ladder, and wall sits.


    Her motivation level is pretty good, and she seems to give good effort in gym. Will try to get her to let me post some pics.

    Thanks again

    I would personally drop white rice for brown, unless its PWO. I would also change up the training days to allow more recovery.

    I agree - that's a LOT of carbs. If you put that into a food counts program you'll find your around 240 g carbs. I have no idea what her metabolism is like, but that's a lot of carbs if you're trying to cut and are not engaged in anything that really requires fueling for endurance. I'd suggest a carb cycle instead. I'd also dump the pasta thing that late at night and go for more of a protein / fat combination and I've already made my comment about the red wine. I did that once for one of my preps cuz my trainer said it would help me sleep - I beg to differ. Personally I think it contributed to making that one of the worst competition experiences I ever had. I'd save it for a cheat meal / week and make it more of a treat.

    The carbs is the reason I'd argue against the t3/clen - that's like gorging on shit food and then throwing in t3 expecting to get results. You're sending your body two different messages - high carbs to build while throwing in t3 that is catabolic. It may get some results but nothing like what you'd expect for the effort of putting your body under the stress of a thyroid medication & clen.

    Also where's the veggies and some good fats?

    Also curious if she's had her thyroid checked recently? Age-related changes suck but particularly in women hypothyroidism can start to show up. Another reason I'd argue for not self-medicating just yet. If you want to play w/ your thyroid you need to know where it stands naturally.
