So I lifted weights this summer, stopped for a bit until I got a bit more organized, and now I’m starting up again. My goal was to get more muscle mass, so I started off with the starting strength program.
Anyways, according to a scale I just bought my body fat is 24%, thats quite high…
So if my goal is to get bigger, should I cut down to a reasonable bf% first?
My intuition tells me to just bulk and cut down all at once, but I know I’ve read somewhere its hard to bulk with a high bf%. Something about your insulin response being different. I can’t find that article anymore…and I’m not sure how high is high.
So any insight?
