So, this is a question for you Coaches/Trainers out there:
Many times T-Men want to get more muscle, in fact, thats kind of the point of this forum. But, I am not a proffesional bodybuilder, and maintaining large amounts of muscle is not realistic, or desired. In my case I am a former athlete (just finished wrestling in May) looking to change my physique. I want to get smaller. In High school I was about 217 lbs. when I won my State Championship. After that I gained 50 lbs on mass, and wrestled Heavyweight (up to 285) in College. Now that wrestling is over I have been dieting down and am about 230 lbs. One issue that I am having is that my lower body is not proportional to my upper body. This is largely due to the fact that it was an advantage, as a wrestler to have more mass in my lower body because I had heavier hips. I look like I weigh about 200lbs with my clothes on.
So my question is what are some techniques and strategies to slim my lower body down, while not loosing a proportional amount of upper body muscle or even building more muscle in my upper body?
