At the end of August I was 153 lbs. or so at around 13-14% bf. A few months later my lifts have jumped pretty nicely and I’ve gained about 12 pounds but my bf% has gone up to about 16-17% depending on the day. Basically a 50/50 muscle/fat split…not good. Being a skinny kid most of my life obviously a 16-17% bf scares me.
My question: should I continue my current goal of adding some more size with the understanding of maybe even an 18-20% bf level, or would it do me more good to try to shed some fat and then hit the gaining again? And second, am I just being a winey little beyotch or does this make sense to anyone else?
I read that Phoenix Theory article and I understand where they are coming from. I have been the scrawny kid my whole life and I’m trying to do something about it…I just dont’ know which to do first at a current weight of 165 with 16% bf. It is easier for the fat guys who have muscle and jsut need to lose fat…but what about us skinny kids with little muscle but fat as well?
