From what I've been reading in this forum for the past several years---and it's getting worse, not better---most posters here are, for some reason, missing the basics of fat loss, and instead, are looking for some magic bullet, or worse, putting their faith in some TV or youtube guru, or some...

Can intense bicycling preserve quadricep mass during a cut?

I've got knee problems and am prepping to do a cut. I don't want my quads shrinking. But the only way I can use more weight on my knee is if I don't go down far or if I use assistance once down far. Bicycling seems my best bet, and I can get them burning. If I lose 0.7% of my body weight per...
