If one wants to lose weight, how much will this effect strength levels. I weigh 195 @ 5’8" and bench 345 squat 425. I want to get down to my ideal weight of 170. How much will this effect my overall strength.
Anyone having experience with this please drop a line.[/quote]
If you want to KEEP your muscle and also your numbers in the gym; its going to be a long process.
I Pro bodybuilder I worked out with a few summers ago told me that a “safe” amount of weight (water weight and/or fat) to lose is no more then 1lb/week. So if your 25lbs off then you got a while to go.
If your loosing more then that your more apt to be losing muscle/strength
I dropped alot of weight this summer and that happened. I went from 190-170 in 6weeks. I was weak as shit (in comparison).
Now I’m back to 194 and feeling a shitload stronger due to my clean diet and Biotest. (shameless plug)
