    If you're going for pure aesthetics, it's almost not worth trying to get big if you are way over 10%. I'd rather try to fluctuate between 6-10% bf. Be beefy when I'm 10% and trim when I'm down to...

    I guess 1 lb a week is good. I'm going to keep doing what I've been doing and be patient. Someone at the gym already told me that my shoulders look bigger. When I was 4 lbs heavier, no one said a...

    No.
    Unfortunately, working out made me such a vain person.
    I've become very obsessed with my body and the way it looks.
    I must look good sporting a wife beater for spring break.

    Trimming fat off slowly is hard.

    How slow are you suppose to cut weight in order to not lose too much muscle.

    I started off at 182 lbs. I'm @ 178 lbs right now @ around 10%
    Should I shoot for 1 lb lost a week?

    Since I plan to be in the 165 to 175 range for life,

    It depends!!!

    If you're extremely ectomorphic and looking to lean up like crazy,
    doing circuit training 5-6 days a week will do you some good.

    You could have a big frame but be a toothpick and not weigh much either.
    I'm hoping that all my training would offset my bone size where no one would know if my frame is small or not.

    Bone Structure.

    I think I have a small frame.
    I'm 5 ft 11 180 lbs.
    Is it more aesthetically pleasing to have a large frame?
    ie big wrists and elbows?
