5’10" / 170lb / 16%bf
Started lifting around 3yrs ago. Lift 3days/wk (1lower body/2upper). Lower body very strong; upper body average.
45min-1hour sessions (typically 6-10reps to or near failure).
I eat pretty good, and have a pretty easy time gaining or loosing weight.
I get between 130-170gProtein daily.
PROBLEM: when I try to gain or loose weight (goal to up muscle & loose fat), I always end up with the same approximate bodyfat%. per pound weight.
When I gain the bf% ups ~1/2 muscle,1/2 fat; and when I loose it drops ~1/2muscle,1/2fat.
I’ve tried massing slower & faster, with/without creatine. I’ve dieted through cardio only, cal restriction. All the same. The past couple of weeks I did the Tdawg/Atkins hoping to melt only fat; but had the exact same results.
Example: 6months ago I was 170 16%bf, massed to 180 18%bf, then cut with Tdawg right back to 170 16%bf.
Would love to be 180 14%, but no chance ever at this rate.
ANY HELP; I’M GOING NOWHERE FAST!!!
