Hey all, I know this isn't the bodybuilding section, but I like the regulars in here better. First off, I'm weak and pretty chubby. 160ish at probably 18% bodyfat. I want to get stronger obviously, but I'd really like to lean down as well. I don't care about being bodybuilder cut but I would like feel okay taking my shirt off, ya know? So I've been reading about body recomposition rather than the tradition bulking and cutting. I got this article from a link in another forum and was wondering what you guys thought about this:
Regarding essentially body recomposition rather than the traditional bulk/cut routine. The author's basic premise is that rather than bulking or cutting one should should choose a target body weight and bodyfat % and eat as if you were trying to maintain that. It seems like there's some logic to that, but I don't really understand the details of muscle gain/fat loss well enough to tell if it's legit or not.
First goal is get strong, and I would like my diet to reflect that. But I'd prefer not being chubby anymore as well.
