Hey everyone, what’s up? I’ve been reading these forums for probably 2 years… I’ll give you guys the long story short. Last January, I was at my heaviest, 222 pounds. I did Lean Eating by Precision Nutrition and I’ve lost a significant amount of fat. I’m now 152 pounds. According to the trainer I’ve been seeing for my body-fat testing, I’m 8% body-fat via 7 site calliper.
The program ended in January and I was a winner! I was $1000. Not to bad, right? lol
Well, here I am now… I don’t want to get flamed but I’m expecting it… Yes, I’m small. I’m in this situation where I have stubborn fat in my love handle area, lower abs and chest. The love handle fat still really bothers me… I just feel like I’d have to cut way too much more and end up at 140 pounds… and I don’t want to get that low. I would say ultimately, I’d be happy at 8% body fat at around 175 pounds.
Cut? Bulk? Lean Bulk?
I know as soon as I ask this question, most will rip me a new one but I’m hoping someone has some advice for me. I was heavier my whole life. I don’t ever want to be fat again. I’ve never been on this side of the fence, wanting to gain weight.
Does anyone have any tips on how to gain lean muscle while keeping fat gain to an absolute minimum? I’m willing to put the time in. Training has become a part of my life… I love it… I love the nutrition that goes along with it…
I feel like I should start a lean bulk on a very lean foundation… I understand I’m lean, but like I said, I still have those annoying trouble spots with more fat than the rest of my body. If I lean bulk, what am I going to do about the stubborn fat I have…
I’m basically looking for any good advice or information. I don’t want to **** this up. I NEVER want to be fat again so I’d take a clean, lean bulk very seriously…
Thanks in advance!
