So recently started taking up bodybuilding after 20 odd years of powerlifting and various other sports. Being 42 I needed a change. First show went ok, only had nine weeks of prep but was a good learning curve. Onto second and in a much better spot.
Now here’s the thing. My coach is obsessed with scales weight. Even three weeks left I’m literally not dropping weight, this is on 1200 cals a day plus cardio and weights. But every week I’m getting leaner and harder whilst not losing any size or muscle. I’m a trainer myself (new to the BB world though) so if I’m getting better each week do the scales actually matter? Surely it’s about the look right??
