Here's me now. Still trying to find a good before pic
Not saying I havnt gained fat because I deffinatley have, but I do feel like its about half and half ya kno. Tipping more in the fat and water direction like u said
Don't cut cardio completely man. I did that and its a biotch gettin back into it. As stated sprints are good, or just go everyday other day compared to everyday
Also don't overdo the bulk. That's easy to do, and you'll just be a fat ****. Made that mistake tio
Lol yeh me to last time I bulked. Ended up stopping mid way and went back to eating a Lil above maintenceOriginally Posted by jonesBones40
I like the idea of sprints. I may do them twice a week and go from thereOriginally Posted by jonesBones40
You could also have an extra day at the gym with about 300 calories below what u on now and do some cardio. Once per week is good, you can add some cardio throughout the week as well but not to intense.

Good idea. My gf insists that I spend three days with her with no going to the gym. Calls it "baby time" and those are my off days lol but maybe I can squeeze 30 mins light cardio in on the treadmill at my apartments or jus get a good ****ing in and call it a day hahaOriginally Posted by halfhuman
The best kind of cardioOriginally Posted by BigD89
Agreed. Thanks for all the help. Hope it keeps comingOriginally Posted by jonesBones40
The way I'd tend to do my training is either; 400m run follwed directly by 400m jog, then 400m run then 300m jog, 400m run, 200m jog, 400m run 100m jog. Rest 2 mins and repeat x 2 or 3.
But thats just my template. Sprints work real well also. Its just another option
The main reason you gained a belly would have more to do with just how much you ate over your maintainece. The body can only synthesize so much muscle (unless aided by exogenous sources) in a time period. 4000kcals is probably far too much of an excess in your case, although depending on your activity levels I cant really say. I would suggest keeping it as lean as possible by aiming for a 500kcal excess or perhaps a bit more.
And reading your other post about gaining 10lbs, just be mindful of what that 10lbs gained actually was. You will gain strength on an excess, so thats a good sign but just be mindful of body composition
Well my activity level isn't tht high so your prolly right saying 4000 is way to much. Would 3000 be suffice? I will begin to measure my body comp and tweak my diet if I start seeing too high numbers. What percentage should I stay around? Maybe 15%?
