Im sure this has been covered before, but I cant find anything on the search. Here is my situation:
I am 17 and have been lifting for about 4 months (bulking). I have been eating mostly clean and getting the proper calories. I am not happy with my size gains although my strength gains have gone up a good deal. In the 4 months I have been lifting I have went from 145 to 170 (6 pounds in the last 2 weeks w/ creatine). But I have put on alot, I mean alot of bodyfat. It is to the point where I want to start cutting, but I dont have much mass as it is. I dont want to lose more muscle. My lifts are all going up still every workout, but I dont really see the size increses. ANd it's not like it is under all the fat, because all the fat seems to be on my stomach. I had abs at 140, but now they are gone.
There has to be a way I can still gain muscle while losing fat. I know most people bulk and cut sepratley, but since my lifts are going up still, could I pull it off. If it is impossible, than I will cut I guess, I cant live with all this fat on my waist.
Maybe If I still use the creatine while cutting, I will be able to shed some fat?
What im getting at is im sure I will be able to keep my strength gains up while "cutting" so if my lifts are increasing dont the muscles have no choice but to grow?
Anyone have any experience or scientific evidence that will help me with this, I am really getting discouraged.
Please help, thanks.
