Ok, I've been on the site for about 9 months, and as usual the information here is the best.
I started out by dropping body fat and then bulked up. I had virtually no muscle mass to start off with, so once I got to a certain point the fat wouldn't come off any more.
I then bulked up for 4 months and put on some decent muscle, as well as fat. Now I want to cut again to my leaaest yet. I'm probably at mid 20's body fat wise.
My question is, when dropping body fat I know you lose/maaintain strength and might lose some muscle, but how much muscle do you actually lose in the real world, not in theory, and can you/have you put on muscle while dieting?
I know many people do put on muscle regardless of diet. I also believe FREQUENCY is key, my cousin put on a ridiculous amount of muscle in 2 months by training heavy every day for 2 months. Please don't miss-interpret that statement, I know it takes a long time to get big, but his training is big proof that you need to just lift heavy often to get big, regardless of diet(within reason). His parameters were 10*10 for a month, then 8*10 for another.
Granted I'm fat ennough to not lose muscle initially, but I need to get thin before I bulk up again so I don't get to fat, again.
My stats are 1,83cm tall(6'0 I think), 185lbs. My diet is good - I believe I know enough about dieting to get into good shape as I've read tons of articles on this and had good results when putting them into practice.
Any comments appreciated..
