Hey guys. I posted a topic before and i wanna thank everyone who helped. But again what i feared the most happened i got 12 people with 5 different opinions and not a solid 1.
anyway, im gonna cut straight to the point , lets assume i follow a healthy diet similar to T dawgs diet , i drink protein shakes (enough) and i do 1 hour of some sort of cardio daily.
Obviously im gonna lose lean body mass , yesterday i came to the realization that i suck at lifting weights (free weights) because im too used to the pussy machines , anyway do you think i should diet and do dips , pull ups , chin ups , pushups for a couple months until i strengthen my muscles enough to do weights ?
or is weightlifting the end all and be all of preserving muscle while on a restricted calorie diet ?
Just a simple question. And if anyone has advice on what exercises to do so i can learn proper form and some exercises to help me retain muscle mass while losing fat weight id appreciate it alot. I find that doing dumbell presses is alot harder than it looks because ill raise one arm faster than the other , i start moving them from side to side , its a disaster HAHA.
I would like to do something that will help me maintain muscle and help me gain strength for the bigger exercises like benching , since i cant bench much.
Also i heard something from someone stating that as long as a weight is challenging to a person it doesnt matter if its 15pounds or 100 pounds. as long as its hard to lift and the muscles are worked hard it’ll be the same effect.
