I've been reading your articles for a while and I've finally decided to be part of the community. I've got sooooooooo many questions for you guys, but first I'd like to get some background information on which you guys can base your answers on.
Bodyfat Percentage- 20
I’m currently doing Starting Strength, but I feel that I started the program too heavy and will be stalling within the next two weeks. I want to do a whole Weightlifting Make-Over. I’ve been uncertain of how to eat and how to lift for a while and I think it shows because my physique isn’t good without a shirt on. Because I’ve done some seriously fail bulks, I want to do my first cut so that I can start over fresh and try again with StrongLifts.
Given my weight, strength and body fat percentage, what is the best way for me to approach a cutting phase that would allow me to keep my strength/muscle as much as possible? Please be as specific as possible, I’m unfortunately one of those folks who need things spoon-fed to them when they’re new at something.
How would I approach lifting and cardio during a cutting phase? I am content at just staying at 225DL, 215SQ and 145FB until I’m lean enough.
I’ve included a recent, crappy picture of me.
Help a new guy out please? I feel so confused…
