Still considered a newbie to the forum, been a member for 2 months or so just never posted. Let me explain a few things about me and what I THINK i'm trying to do. I don't know anything about measuring body fat, but I DO know my 220 lb. frame isn't all fat, just loose skin from dropping alot of weight in a short time. I used to be 267 pounds, yes a **** bag basically. Since I started lifting weights and running on the treadmill 3 years ago, I've gained alot of muscle in the process and it looks pretty damn good, got alot of compliments...anyways I've never had a set routine, and now i'm getting very serious about lifting. I had a piece of **** bench for all that time that didn't have anything for legs, and I couldnt even do inclines or declines. Needless to say I just threw that P.O.S out in the garbage, and bought a high quality bench. I've set my routine to Mon. biceps/forearms...Tue. chest/tri's....Wed. cardio/abs...Thurs. shoulders/back....Fri...legs....Sat. OFF..Sun. cardio and abs again starting all over on Monday . Is two days out of the week good enough for losing my stomach and some excess fat/loose skin/whatever? I don't want to lose any of my mass because I like my size/muscles but I DO want to lose my gut and get even bigger muscles at the same time, is this possible? I know somewhere down the line i'm going to have to start CUTTING and eating alot better for the cutting season and I know i'll lose some mass when I begin that phase, but it's ok. Right now i'm really focusing on getting my excess mass more built up solid. When I lift I go for the high weight and low reps everytime and i'm seeing good results. I've done searches on all this ****, but everything in the forums say some**** about Body fat % and I don't know how all that works into building my body. Hopefully with this new routine my weight will do something. It has been stuck at 220 for 2 months or so. Went from 267 to 208 and now i'm stuck at my current weight of 220. Being 5'10 and 220 isn't THAT shabby, i'm a decent size. Last question is, i've seen something on NEEDING fat in a diet, I was wondering if there was any "good" fat? Enough psycho babble, any tips would be appreciated.
