Depends on how long you have. Kunk's right but a lot of people don't have time for that first thing in the morning. I try to do a little something if I can. I have high ceilings so I jump rope for ~10 minutes with some green tea & 5-10g bcaa's

Increase low intensity cardio and stop doing squats?
or Increase cardio low intensity (or HIIT) and squats with very light wait for 4 sets of 25 reps?


Thanks a lot in advance for your time

Are you very lean already? Even guys tend to carry an appreciable amount of fat in their thighs, 1-2" worth sometimes. If you're above maybe 12% bf or wherever level of leanness you'd like to stay, that might be the best place to start.

Yes im lean enough, i was doing some squats and legs training for the past year and a half (to become a fireman) but i stopped, muscle in the thigh is bothering me to wear pants i like, so it's really about kill, burn, destroy muscles every where but especially in the thighs.

Thanks a lot for your answers if you got anything to add i would be happy to hear more about.

there are plenty of ways to catabolize, but the most effective one in my experience is too much cardio and not enough protein.

I'll get some good ribbing for this maybe, but honest questions.

How do I tell the difference between a love handle and a muscle?

How do I determine my body fat percentage?

Maybe a push/pull split to change it up. But tbh, unless your routine is absolute garbage I'd chalk it up to diet or (lack of) intensity. Doing 7 reps when you can push out 10? Do 10. But it hurts? Good.

Wouldn't worry about getting too big - it's a slow process that doesn't exactly sneak up on you.

Play with rep ranges. 8x4 seems to point primarily to strength gain - maybe 3-4x6-8 and see how it plays out for a few weeks.

This is random, but I didn't see any rear delt work and I think it's an underappreciated muscle.

Does it jiggle when you tap it? can it be flexed?

it's probably a love handle.

bf: just get it tested. rough guide ~ 10% unflexed abs. if you're not around here, again, it's probably a love handle ^_^

Unless he starts running marathons, simply not doing anything with his legs and cutting calories a lot will work much better.

He's bald and has a high-pitched voice?
post #640 of 962
^haha. would have been bald anyway as my mom's dad and mine are bald but it accelerted it. also, my balls temporarily shrunk, i had major crashes coming off, even with PCT. i probably did 3 short cycles a year over a period of 8 years. have been off for 2+ years now. oh yeah, and all this annoying muscle i might not have otherwise had.

So your advise would be to not even do running as a cardio?
Should i prefer rowing for example over running if i want to destroy muscle in the thighs?

I think the biggest destroyer of muscle will have to be the reduced caloric intake, especially protein. This might be a bit painful though.

Does anyone supplement their workouts with running to keep the fat down? If you do, do you do run miles or interval sprints. My goal is to gain muscle but not bulk up too much while keeping the fat to a minimum. I lift 3x a week and go for a run after the gym. I usually do interval or superset full body routines. I weighed 187lbs. 6 months ago. Im down to 160ish. Ive lost the weight but cant seem to tighten up the mid section. I am 5'9" btw. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
post #644 of 962
^i do 4 days/week cardio. 2 days of HIIT done as 1:30 walking, :30 running. i repeat 10 times.

on steady-state days, i walk 30 mins at 4.0 speed and an 8.5 incline

it's probably a sign of a diet gone too far when you have guilt over half a grapefruit
