Well i was trying to build as much mass as possible before I start really trying to cut the fat. Running out of time before full fledged beach weather. So gonna start cutting up. Is there anyway to build mass at the same time?
Building Mass and Cutting dont go hand in hand. Just doesnt work. You get one or the other.
A good comprise, is that you will get some mass, while losing some fat, and simply alter your body fat percentage while staying about the same weight. This is what I end up doing. It can be frustrating because I want to lose weight, but gain more muscle mass at the same time. After about 4 steady weeks, the results look pretty good to me, and its a matter of holding steady for the rest of my diet.
If you just want to lose the wieght, Hydroxycut and a good clean diet (or Atkins), plus cardio 4 times a week will definately do it.
Cut up first, then gain mass. or vice versa. Which is more important to you?
Also, while taking an ECA (Ephedrine/Caffeine/Aspirin) stack on a diet, its been shown to be Anti-Catabolic, meaning your body will actually spare the muscle and force it to burn fat, not the other way around.
I personally believe every one of you who wishes to find more about supplements to check out www.elitefitness.com
and go to the supplement forums. Lots of good info from body builders and various other atheletes that have used them.
