I'm 5 ft 10 1/2 inches.
I beefed up to about from 145 to 178 lbs in less than a year.
I was wanting to cut to about 165 lbs or so and look incredibly ripped for the summer.
I cut my carbs a great deal and lowered my calorie intake.
I got down to 169. My girlfriend noticed that I lost weight, but I don't look incredibly leaner. I started to look skinny in my clothes.
I fatigue quickly with my workouts and can barely use my muscles.
What was wrong here?
My trainer tells me that if I actually cut, I will look like a stick and lose a lot of hard earned muscle.
He tells me with my body type(ectomorph), mass is hard to come by so I should keep beefing or "keep the ball rolling."
My new plan is to forget sporting the wife beater this summer and maybe sport it for next. In the mean time, I am going to work on my gains of strength and size. My goal is to reach 185 sometime this year. If I can slowly climb to 190 and maintain 12 to 15% bf, I will then start cutting down to 170 lbs. @ 7 - 8% bf.
I will then be a male stripper and sport the wife beater everyday and rub myself with body glitter.
