    10 lbs... is alot

    If I were to lose 10 pounds of pure fat, I would look that much better. I never realized how much (volume wise) 10 lbs of fat is.

    It really doesnt take much to look that much better (assuming your about 15% bf). Anyone else realize that?

    True. But 10lbs of fat loss from 15% is hard to do. The lower BF% you get the tougher it is to lose fat and retain muscle >.<

    I was actually thinking about that the other day. If I wanted to be 10%, I would have to lose ~5% bf, from 155lbs. That's like 8 lbs of fat. If I could cut that off, I would be pretty cut. For now I'm going to keep bulking, though.

    Good idea bro! Don't have much to cut down to at that weight!
