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 1010 for a month, then 810 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…
