I’m sort of a newb to bodybuilding but I have been lifting weights for some years by now.
I’m 5’8’’ 174lbs and 16% BF and 20 years old.
What I would like to ask is if I should I go to 10% and build from there so I don’t get too fat?
Or should I go up from here and then diet down? Also I don’t know a much about fat loss either. My english is still in the works so maybe my question sounds a little stupid. Anyways if you can help me out here I will really apreciate it.
*This is the first time i’m over 12% bodyfat since I can remember.
*I have already attained the “basic” numbers in my squat, deadlift and bench.
*I was already 183 @ 11% before when I was in a olympic weighlifting team in a university in Mexico 2 years ago but I have no idea how I got there because I was coached the whole time.
*I feel less energetic and slower since I got a little fattier and I feel it has been a factor in me losing some muscle.
*This is my first year living in U.S. and since I don’t have a lot to do besides go to college I eat unhealthy foods all day, something that I have been correcting these past 3 months.
I will upload a couple of pics in a sec.
