You don’t cut fat and then gain strength. Just not how it works, but I kinda know what you mean. We get people saying that a lot. What are your current stats - height, weight, general fat level (not bodyfat percentage, but are you kinda pudgy, average/undefined like the pic you posted, sorta lean, etc.)?
Um, that dude looks like he spent all of 6 weeks doing nothing but lateral raises and barbell curls. I wouldn’t use that as any type of reference, other than as a starting point.
Let’s drastically contrast that with, for example, Georges St. Pierre above. 5’11" and a lean 170 in that pic, and he usually walks around 195-200ish. He obviously doesn’t train to be a bodybuilder, but I think it’s safe to say he’s “fit” in the sense that he’s a combination of strength, power, speed, agility, endurance, and flexibility. I’m not trying to tell you what to shoot for, though.
