Sticky Thread Sticky: Don't look past the basics

From what I've been reading in this forum recently, 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 online 'trainer' who's only trying to scam their $$$. ...

New to Forums - BULK or CUT? :)

Hey everyone thought I'd start on the forums by asking for some advice. I'm 18 and have been training for 1.5 years. The problem is that I used to be very overweight and I'm kind of at that middle point of not knowing wether to bulk or cut. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

dumb question - is bodyfat amount literally just your weight times the BF percentage?

If I weigh 187 lbs and just got a 20% bodyfat estimate does that mean I literally am carrying around a grand total of 187*0.2 = 37.4 lbs of fat, with the remainder (149.6 lbs) being everything else I carry around: my bones, my hair, my muscles, my cartilege, anything that's not literally fat? ...

Going down to 12% and losing it almost immediately

I'm on my 3rd cut. On both prior ones, I hit 12% and lost it almost immediately when the water / other stuff came back (abs softened back to 14% or so). I'd like to actually have the 12% look when I resume bulking (I know it'll slowly soften). Does that mean I have to cut to 10 or 11% to...

I've been following Fierce 5 for about 5 months and I wouldn't say I am amazed with my progress. I haven't been making much strength progress and my muscle progress is mostly around my back. I notice overall definition but not much size. It's really demotivating, especially when most of this...
