The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    help on bulk/cut decision

    hey i didnt get any feedback last time i think cuz of the way i wrote it i made it hard for ppl to understand but anyway ive been lifting for a year and a half and i stopped liftin during summer for about a month and a half and increased weight but lost muscle...
    im 5 7, 173 and around 15-16%bf(gained around 5 lbs during the non lifting time)
    if i wanted to lose 6% bf, how long would it take, generally?
    and...will i somehow be able to get back the muscle ive lost during the time of this cut?

    Throw a lot of bulk in the bowl and ad a sprinkle of cut.

    Provided you're lifting heavy and your diet is on target, you shouldn't lose much muscle while you're cutting. Check out the stickies for more info, particularly Built's sticky on cutting.

    nah, i was asking if maybe the muscle that i had lost could somehow just come back while im cutting since now its shocking the body all over again, i know im in a caloric deficit but i thought since i was shocking the body again it might?

    You can still gain muscle while cutting...so go on a cut and lift hard and you will be fine.

    To small to cut, end of discussion. Recompose your body if you feel its needed.

    Too small? he is only 5'7" and weighs 175...for his height that isnt too small. If there is some flab to be lost and wants too look good for the beach then why not go on a cut diet and lift like a madman at the same time?
