I'm a 4'9 woman, my highest weight used to be 122 pounds and I've lost this weight over a span of some months. But my belly fat is still there and just refuses to budge.

Fullbody fatigue

So I’ve been running fullbody for a few weeks and realized a couple of things. I’m not growing as I did in the past with this routine. But also I noticed I’m more mentally fatigued vs physically fatigued. Like I don’t feel that I got workout in but I’m tired. Anyone else experience this?

How do bodybuilders do it?

Okay besides the injections of all kinds of stuff, how do pro bodybuilders get to such low body fat? What can a natural adopt from their programs ? I am stuck at 20% or so.

Does replenishing glyocen slow down fat loss?

When I take a week or even a day to eat at maintenance I feel more energized the days after. This is also true at the beginning of a cut. I understand this is because the body isn't glycogen depleted. I have some disclarity here. If I'm eating at true maintenance I'm not gaining weight. But if...

Question Weight loss, 1lb, 2lb, or percent?

Pretty straight forward question here. I have heard so often about losing weight "you gotta lose 1-2lbs a week, anymore and it's bad". Personally it does not make much sense, a person who weighs 200lbs and someone like me at 350, 2 lbs for them is a lot more percent of total body weight than for...
