I have a question regarding getting ripped with striations and the whole bit. Currently, I am 5’11 1/2 about 200 lbs. with 16% body fat. I still have nice ab definition, it looks like I’m at 11% (go figure!). Before working out I use to be 170lbs, so I’ve gained a bit of muscle. I started doing a walking exercise (because I don’t want to lose muscle and get skinny with hardcore aerobics) that has been reducing my body fat substantially, however, I’m greedy. I want MASSIVE cuts in my biceps and triceps arms, forearms, pecs, and so forth.
I was told by an ex-bodybuilder to continue to do what I am doing since it’s working (my goal is to get in the 215 - 225 range). --He told me to flex each body part for 15 seconds, resting 20 sec. at a time for at least 10-15 minutes.–He says that the rips, cuts, and striations will really start to show after about 6 weeks, that is, if I do this daily.
So far I have been doing this for 2 1/2 weeks (to save time I flex two to three muscle groups at the same time), other people are noticing differences in my physique( I don’t), but my concern is that It won’t really work that way he tells me it will. Regardless, I will be continuing with it for at least another 6 weeks just to see what happens. --Is He right! What are your suggestions on getting ripped?-- With all factors the same, will I turn into a ripped looking thermogenic machine?
I’m game for any other suggestions regarding body fat lose as well.
