YOU'RE SCREWED !!!
A short, pseudo-article by The3toedSloth
Relevent info jacked from Chris Shugart
Ok, so perhaps screwed is little harsh, but this is gonna be tougher than you thought. I took the liberty of PMing Chris Shugart to ask him if I have missed an article about
'SkinnyFat' somewhere. There is alot of mention of this affliction on the forum, but I have never found a solid solution mentioned.
I think that the proliferation of new guys posting their skinny fat pictures, holding a shoe, with the thread title
'Should I bulk or should I cut?' is due to the confusion of just how the hell does the skinny fat guy get rid of that gut?
So, you've dieted down, and lost about a kazillion pounds, and everyone is telling you how Fucken GREAT you look. With your shirt on . But you know the truth, when you take that shirt off at night to get into your
flannel pajamas, you see that remaining blubber hanging right in front of you, just below your skinny chest.
Maybe you've been going to the gym
for awhile, and you see some progress. You can flex in your mirror, when no one is looking, and see little bulges you think may be biceps, but still... there's that biafran belly. And you can't diet the fucken thing off, and it seems you can't work it off, either.
Well, apparently, according to CS, you have to WORK it off. You just have to be very patient.
Here's the quote in BOLD from Chris Shugart
[b]Skinny fat is tough to beat, and it can be caused by a lot of things. I think most people think they can get into ideal shape quickly, but it's tougher than that.
I think eating a lot of healthy food is a good first step - don't "diet" but
don't eat crap either. You can get enough muscle-building calories without eating junk.
Also, no aerobics. Use interval(fartlek) training instead. As for weights, - big compound movements, deadlifts, squats, pull-ups, dips, rows, bench etc.
The rest is just putting in the time and finding the balance in your diet. [/b]
I wrote this spurious little 'article' in the hopes that maybe Chris will add some more words of wisdom to it. Since 'Write a Skinny Fat Article'
didn't seem to be floating at the top of his 'to do' list.
I think the first question a skinny fat guy might ask is, 'How do I know when I've dieted down enough, and should start eating normally if I still have the gut?
That's it for me.
