Cutting fat while gaining muscle/ size - Page 2
But I am a lean 165-170 10-11% percent right now with casual working out 2-3 times a week now and running 2-3 times a week.
But I also drink more than I should and don't eat enough...
Then senior year came around and I just decided I wanted to enjoy myself.
I still enjoy it but not as much, i don't even take protein pwo because I am too poor haha. Rent is 50 percent of my income every month.
If you want to gain size, just nut up and do Starting Strength for a year and you'll make huge gains. I did it for a while and then wrecked my knee playing basketball, so I had surgery for that back in February which stopped all my gains. I was able to work out again at the end of April after 6 weeks on crutches - safe to say my legs shrunk considerably. I went from a bodyweight of 190lbs at 6'2" to 210lbs currently. My lifts have also shot up and I'm definitely more filled out than before. You'll put on some fat, but you'll also build a lot more muscle. If you want to/have to do a BB split for some reason, at least do it properly and track everything. The reason so many BB splits seem to fail for the average lifter is because they think they're easier to do and never up weights between workouts.
No matter what program you do, follow it to a T, don't miss any workouts, and give it 100% or you'll fail to achieve anything. A poorly designed program performed at 100% (increasing weights, not missing, recovering properly) is better than a perfect program that you half ass the whole time.
But personally, I'd say go balls out on Starting Strength for a year and you'll get a hell of a lot stronger and put on some serious size.
How did you measure?
At those numbers you'd almost be world champion
For calorie counting this app is pretty hard to beat. Apart from being able to manually add things in there is a barcode scanner which has most items pre-saved in it already. Not sure if there is an iPhone equivalent though.
Lots of research recently regarding weight loss recently seems to indicate that diet is the most important factor in weight loss rather than exercise (not that it's not important). I guess you are what your eat.
