is it possible to lose the weight on my mid section because that is the only place that is soft and lose, while at the same time gain some size to the rest of my body
no its not.
it is however possible to lose overall body fat while you make modest total body muscle gains.
if you try and focus on losing weight around your midsection, whilst working your upper body for hypertrophy…you will get no where.
instead, do a full body training regime, using big movements like squats, deadlifts, rows, dips, chinups.
these done with intensity will make your body a fat burning furnace, which will (eventually) start to trim your waist (subject to correct nutrition)
the best you can hope for whilst losing the fat is to do some strength work to hang on to what muscle you have…if you do everything as perfectly as possible it is achieveable to make muscle gain during fat loss…but it takes an iron will.
id do the full body fat loss intense style workout for a while -
search for the article ‘real fast fat loss’.
this took me from 18% to 14% body fat, and removed a layer from my midsection, while at the same time i went from an 8 rep chinup set to 3 sets of 15.
suppliments: fish oil - read up on this
multivit, green/white tea.
good protein powder
there is a hell of a lot more to this (especially seeing as ive said nothing about nutrition)
hopefully what ive told you will have you doing the right stuff in the gym to start with, and in the mean time, read as many articles and forum posts and clinics as possible to gather knowledge, as this will be your best avenue to success.
