Seeing Haley at 237lbs makes me wonder how much I would need to drop to be contest ready.
only one way to find out…
I know, I know, but this shit takes time. Eating like CT recommended actually put muscle on me and kept my weight constant instead of allowing me to drop body weight. I know that is “ideal” but it may take longer than in the past when I dropped cals much lower (and lost more muscle).
My goal is to be noticeably much leaner by November (date is only significant because I am going to WATCH a local bodybuilding comp and I want to be in shape in the audience). People around me say they can see a difference now but I am always last to see a change.[/quote]
This is pretty unrelated to Marcus Haley, but I have a question in regards to cutting.
Why is everyone (who is not competing) so afraid of losing muscle when they are dieting? I know it’s ideal to hold on to muscle, but any muscle lost will be regained quickly once a few more calories are added back in the diet, no? Muscle memory should have any muscle lost back extremely quick so if you lose a bit more muscle than optimal, who cares, right?
