no amount of muscle is gonna make you suddenly slim...if you dont want fat then you gotta cut
23 yo 6 2", 258lbs
Feb' 06......................................Mar' 06......july 06

Eat less and move more
Squats work better than supplements.
"You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei
"You're wrong, and I have a completely irrelevant pubmed abstract that may or may not say so." - Belial
I has a blog.
I has a facebook.
iight man... before everyone starts postin smart ass comments.... all i wanted to kno is what the differnece in terms of lifting when it comes to what i am doing now and cutting. i kno u have to eat less and obviously lift more..... but i am lifting more and more but my flabby chest is still there. so all i am asking is someone to just tell me specific instructions on how to cut instead of bulk.
Search first, all the answers are here already.
You need to eat fewer calories than you burn. There's no change in the way you lift, it's all diet.
he did already tell you. Eat less , watch the calorie intake and just be more active and lift. Itd not an over night thing.
lately all i have been eating is a lot of protein.... rotiserie chickens, low fat meats/ steaks.... and a lot of protein bars... is that good or do i need a change?
It's probably the right stuff, you just need to eat less of it to lose weight. It's up to you to decide if you want to lose weight to get rid of the fat chest or just continue to gain weight and put on muscle.
Lower your bodyfat... It's the only way. Doesn't matter what or how many different exer/sets/reps you do for chest. If your bf is high, your chest will probably not be defined.
... will not make you lose fat in and of itself. It only creates a caloric deficit. Losing bodyfat comes from eating less and lifting hard to tell your body to keep the muscle.
1. You don't need that many exercises for chest, 2-3 is sufficent.
2. When your cutting, stick with your weight routine, train heavy and hard as possible. Basically stick to the same routine that worked in gaining strength and size.
3. The rest of the ppl are basically saying there is no spot reducing, but that you should use diet to lose bodyfat to get the look you want.
4. Conclusion: Keep training heavy and hard, and use the right diet procedure to reduce bodyfat levels.

"The only easy day was yesterday."
i only directed that to jordan cuz he posted that dam i'm with stupid sign. all you other guys have been very helpful. thanks.
thank u, i just have one question. u said that i should stick with my routine, but said to only do 2-3 exercises for my chest. should i then cut out all the machine presses, and just stick to bench presses- incline, flat, decline?Originally Posted by powerrack
plus... should i follow the same and only do 2-3 sets for every other area or is it good to do more sets for different areas? i hope that made sense.
I would suggest less caloric intake and maybe throwing in a little bit of cardio into your workout

i mean i really dont thinki eat a lot of calories during the day....
im now in school, and i eat a chicken sandwich, and some days drink an ice tea. then i come home, eat a salad, then w/e i eat for dinner whether its some kind of lean meat, or chicken again. once in a while i eat a piece of pizza in school only cuz i get sick of chicken. on the days i work out i eat a clif bar with somethin like 250-300 cal's. is it good to eat protein bars everyday?
i also have been tellin myself to start running, and doin knuckle pushups and situps everyday, but have yet to start that. i must motivate myself better.
Plain pushups and sit ups, are pointless. Don't bother us with wondering "what I'm doing wrong" when you aren't even counting your calories. Calories = everything. And no, stop eatting bars. Supplements are a last resort. Eat real food, read the articles.
This isn't a brain science, only a determination of will power.
i do eat real food. some say to eat bars some dont. who do i follow.
Then read the articles scarz posted. Get a pen and paper. Keep track of EVERYTHING.
what do you think that sign mean?Originally Posted by yankeekd25
It means the poster above him is stupid, duh.
