I use to weigh 83kgs (183 lbs) and then lost 11kg to get to 72kg (159lb) over a 6 month period using a low carb clean diet and going on the cross trainer for 1 hour 4 or 5 times a week (in the morning on an empty stomach).
I still wanted to lose more fat but noticed my muscles were getting smaller. Therefore I decided to start a hardcore weights programme to build my body. Have been doing weights 4 or 5 times a week for 2 months now with a high protein, moderate carb diet and now weigh 75kg (165lbs). Whilst I can definitely notice an increase in muscle mass I am still disapointed with my fat levels especially around my face. Even at 72kgs I felt I looked a bit podgy but at 75kgs I now want to go back into a calorie deficit diet which will no doubt affect my muscle gaining ambitions.
I frequently see people on here looking to get to 230lbs etc and want to know what on average a decently built chap at 5 feet 7 inches would weigh?
I am now going to go easy on the calories for a bit whilst continue training to see if I can get my fat level down whilst maintaining muscle. My body doesnt not have much fat only my face. However, at the same time I want to know what goal weight I should roughly be aiming to get to when I can control the fat levels. The sort of muscular build I am looking at is one like Jean Claude Van Damme back in his prime days. I dont want to look like Arnold or other bodybuilders as I think they are too big.
Anyone got an answer to my question or any tips for my situation?
I sometimes think it could be a genetic thing but I dont want a fat face if that is was bodybuilding will give me. The problem I have is that my bodyfat is fine.
