Decided to throw this out here for folks to jaw-jaw on.
For most people who've been through body recomposition/transformation, the norm is to see a scrawny fella who gained 50 lbs while staying lean or for a big dude with high BF% to lose 50 lbs and become insanely shredded.
I am examining options for someone who is looking to recompose the body such that the weight remains about the same at the end i.e.
Now: 190 lbs, 20% BF
After: 180 - 190 lbs, 10%
** 12 - 24 months timeframe
I am interested in what you guys think about the following:
1) Cut to lose more fat than LBM until single BF%, then slowly add LBM
2) Bulk to add more LBM than FAT, then cut
3) Mini cut and bulk cycles , say every 5/6 months
4) Eat and train smart and let body slowly recompose itself
5) Any other
Please draw from your experience/knowledge and if there is any thread on here or elsewhere where similar issues have been addressed please post links.
Thanks a lot!
