My current workout is 4 cardio workouts (jogging turns sprinting straights on a track) for 45 minutes and 3 cardio (same as above) for 30 minutes + weight training and 3 3 hr+ tennis games sprinkled into a week. I've been waking up early to do the workouts and the tennis games are usually in the afternoon. However, after a month of this I feel the results are a bit slow, I've only lost about 10ish pounds and I'm not sure how much of that is water. (probably a lot) I didn't adjust my diet.
I feel I can at most wake up another 30 minutes early to make the workouts 90 min total so I could do 90 min cardio 4 days and 45 min cardio + weigh training 3 days with 3 tennis games a week and start eat a lot less, will that help me make my goal?
Back story if you're interested:
I've played tennis quite competitively in high school, playing any amateur tournaments that were within my driving distance and what not. Since college I've been getting out of shape, I still play, just not with the same frequency and definitely not at the same level. A month ago one of my best friends who was my doubles partner back in high school invited me over to his house for winter break, he also mentioned there was a week long tennis tourney that coincided with this visit if I wanted to play, so of course I said yes. (haven't played tennis with him for a couple years now) I know he's been playing all throughout college though and know I've fallen behind so starting a month ago I've been playing 3 times a week and working out to catch up and so when we play it'll actually be competitive and fun.
