C’mon, surely you know better than to ask how to gain lbm and lose fat in 10 DAYS.
You said you have been lurking at T-Nation for a while, have you actually read anything on the site or do you just log on to look at the powerful images?
BTW your profile says 225lb. I am assuming you didn’t drop from 225 to 175 in that week off from training…
I don’t know too many mesomorphs that stand 6’1 at 175, that is smaller (slightly) than me and I am a skinny bugger. You may want to read recent posts (rants) by numerous T-mag regulars on already lean skinny bastards wanting to lose fat.
To paraphrase: you cannot lean down and get more definition when there are no muscles there to define.
Can I get an amen?
And no, I am not hyoooge by any means except in comparison to midget jockeys, heroin addicts and santa’s elves, so you may disregard my opinion if you wish, but I would stand back and cover yourself in preparation for the onslaught that will surely follow your post.
I am not sure even steroids will work fast enough for your 10 day timeframe. It sounds a bit like the fat girls (sorry ladies) that go and join a gym to lose 10kg 1 week before their wedding.
Actually, following that line of thought, I think I have the perfect solution: you could always try implants and liposuction.
Or, even better, I am sooooo clever, you want lots of lean body mass. By definition if you increase lbm whilst maintaining current amounts of bodyfat, your actual bodyfat % will go down. If you don’t care what the lbm is made of, you could just inject large volumes of mercury into your muscles. That should add some serious mass in no time at all, leaving you 9 days to prepare for whatever the hell it is you are preparing for.
Or, more realistically, you could follow Garrett’s other suggestion:
Get NEW GOALS
hope that helps
