Hi /fit/ , i bulked like a retard and now i look like shit even if i got stronger in compound lifts. What should i do to reduce bodyfat and retain all the muscle ? im 6ft6 and 110kg.
Everytime i try to cut and lift on deficit i end up having a softer look like i didnt lose any fat but my muscles underneath are more flat and it looks horible and depressing..
>pic related me
Eat at a 500kcal deficit like EVERYONE ELSE. Calories in=Calories out. By the looks of your physique (ew why would anyone dirty bulk these days) You need a good 4-5 months of cutting. Good luck!
Madcow 5x5 and aim to hit your current max in 4 weeks. After that, try to go for 2.5kg increase and then do it again. Don't blame yourself if you didn't get that increase, because if you can maintain your strength, you'll be stronger in weight ~ bodyweight ratio, which is already an accomplisment on a diet.
Madcow 5x5 is low volume high intensity, so its good for a diet.
you dont get it. How long will it take til the cutting will worth it ? i mean getting past the flat and flabby look induced by the deficit ...Id try a recomp diet but i dont want to make very slow progress too..
this is a back shot. Im sad because i also ended up having strechmarks all over my body and my skin looks unhealthy now too. Fuck my like /fit//...
your muscles will actually look smaller when u are cutting cause of the lack of glycogen in your muscles, but it will come back once you start eating more carbs
depending on how long youve been lifting u can deffo make gains while lose body fat. in your position id go for maybe 4 months of cutting with a 300-500 cal deficit
1.5 years of eating like i didnt give a fuck. I just ate my protein grams (150 on average) and filled the rest with watterver i wanted. I think i did an exces over tdee of 1000 calories or 700 idk
This is actually happening to me right now op. But if you have a large meal your muscles start showing again right after. That's just proof that they're not actually gone.
Also just remember you look like shit when you're fat and muscular anyway. So just cut, you got nothing to lose.
