@destraht Yeah brother, I hate cardio machines.
So much about fitness/lifting is finding what works for you. IMO, it's exposing yourself to all the different advice/programs/'science' etc and pulling together what suits you.
Like, for me I hate getting fat. Some guys can do the big bulk, put on lots of body fat but stay the course long enough to put on muscle, then shred.
If you can say 'it's winter, fuck it I'm going to bulk', that's awesome if you like doing by the Winter season and can stick it out.
For me, ALL my fat goes straight to my stomach. It's a fucking bitch. I can't do the higher body-fat bulk, because my stomach bloats like a motherfucker and I just feel like shit.
So this time, I am taking @Whiteindia's advice.
I'm going to get down to AT LEAST 15%bf (hopefully more). Then very very slowly add calories, adjusting if I'm putting too much body fat on.
Hopefully I can hit 3100 calories a day whilst still being in the teens for bf.
Then I'm going to cycle bulking with 'leaning out' periods. Bulk for a little, then when my bf has risen...drop to like a -100 deficit and shed some body-fat whilst still eating enough to maintain muscle or even build a little.
Hopefully I can stay lower in bf this way, or have wiggle room to not go over 20%.
I have absolutely no idea if you give a fuck about any of that, lmao. But I was almost finished writing so kept going.Read More
@INNASKILLZ2K20 I'm bulking now because I can't run since there is slippery ice everywhere. It just makes sense to pass the time in Winter by eating more. I would die of boredom putting in 30-45 minutes on a cardio machine. 10-15 minutes is all that I can bare.
@tchower yeah, I'm cutting down a bit again.
I got down to 18%bf, but didn't track my bulk and put on fat way too fast.
Fucking sucks. Can't wait to bulk again. Slowly this time.
But yeah, you look big and....thick #NOFUCKINGHOMO
I can't find any non gay way to say that last bit.
@INNASKILLZ2K20 Thanks bro! Just a lot of compound movements and finishing it off with isolation movements honestly, sometimes light weight high reps, other days heavier weight low reps, really push for that last rep on the exercises if you can get it in, and I typically take supplements such as Glutamine and I drink a lot of protein shakes and Green Tea. If you can, try out all your B complex vitamins such as B-12, B6’s and see how you feel. Creatine I do off and on.
