What did you look like at 167? Thats the key IMHO.
I tell people to change the routine because its too late to “jumpstart” strength gains/progression with the same routine, without significantly increasing food intake IF he’s been stagnant AND very soft. Again IMO.
Big, soft and weak AFTER training a while is usually a recipe for recomp IMHO. Their metabolism downshifts at the speed of light when they drop intake AND they usually go from big and soft to small, in-shape (in clothes) and soft (out of clothes).
if you’re the kind who’s NEVER taken his shirt off despite training a while DESPITE dropping weight and despite looking reasonable in clothes, I’d recommend a dose of thibz.
If you’d like to listen to more insight, I’d prefer you email me, I don’t want to post in this thread anymore. \hijack
So I take it you like Thibs recommendations for recomping as laid out in “Refined Physique Transformation?” Lactate circuits, low carb etc.
I’m a soft 200lbs, up from 170lbs earlier this year. Looking to get rid of some fat now. I don’t eat much… rarely a day when I go over 2500-3000kcal. Still I gain fat easily, probably because I’ve spent many years as 230lb fat ass before crash dieting down to 167 lbs.
Yeah I know, cool story bro.
Anyway I was just wondering because of your “change your routine” comment there. Do you change your training around much for fat loss as opposed to mass gain?
