Alright... I got a problem here. It's the shape of my body and the problem it is creating with bodybuilding.
waist: 34.5 @ bellybutton
waist: 37 @ thickest part by hip bone
As you can see... my love handles and obliques give me an hourglass shape. This is not a new problem. When I was 165 @ 10% BF I had the same problem. I store 99% of the fat on my body in that one place. So when I started bulking my body got bigger overall, and the problem has gotten worse. Now it bugs the hell out of my because I am happy with my whole body except for that. My chest is big (though not incredibly defined), my arms are solid (16 inches), and my legs are looking swole now too. But my love handles and back fat give me a look I do not like at all.
I plan on bulking up another 10 pounds through the holidays. By that point I will be pretty swole, but I'll also be a certified fat ass if this keeps up. Then I plan on cutting down to a lean (hopefully) 180.
My question is... how do I get rid of that sh-t. If it was a problem at 10% I don't know what I can do. I plan on cutting down to 8-10% but I want to be ripped and I want my abs to show. What diet, supps, cardio, and training can I do to give me a V-shape instead of an hour glass shape? It should be noted that I have an anxiety problem and I know stress can cause extra fat storage. But this sh-t makes me mad as hell. I know other cats that are 15% BF but still have a solid V-shape. No matter how thick my back and chest get, I can't have a v-shape with 37-inch hips.
How the hell do pro bodybuilders and others get so big and keep such tiny waists? My body seems to grow all at once. I have the same dimensions now I had at 155-165, just bigger overall.
