    Bulking but want loose lil fat in belly


    I'm bulking up right now and i'm trying to gain as much as i can. i'm eating as much food(good food) as i could.
    I got like a "beer belly" sorta that runs in the family, and i'm not at that stage YET. But i can see just a lil more fat around my stomach area; since i'm bulking up.
    i dont got fat at all, i think i'm at around lil less then 4% body fat.(yea its not alot).

    but in order to control that fat around the belly area, i dont want to do cardio; so wuts the best thing to do? just ab exercices?

    thanks,

    thanks,
    First... I wanna see pics to see if you are in fact under 4%. Second... It is highly unlikely you will be able to only put on lean muscle, without putting on a little fat, especially if you are in fact 4%. There are a number of approaches to the gains you want. In reality, it is going to be very difficult to put on any type of poundage when you are 4% bf.

    Actually, I think 4% bf isn't healthy at all! It's way too low. IMO, only bodybuilders in competition or marathon runners will have that bf percentage...

    If you used a scale, it is terribly wrong lol. If you are wanting to prevent belly fat while on a bulk? Cortisol blocker and fish oil maybe? You are still gonna put on some belly fat if you are bulking correctly.

    Also, ab workouts will not prevent belly fat. Strict diet prevents belly fat.

    How long have you been at 4% bodyfat? And how are your organs? Have you gotten any blood tests done lately?

    If you really are sub 10% bf and looking to put on a bit of muscle while losing fat (sans AAS) be sure to check out UD2.0. It's pretty intense of a diet/training program but it will help you with your goals.

    I gotta agree with Aggrivated, I call shenanigans on this. Even at 147# you would be utterly SHREDDED at 4% body fat

    THIS is what 4% looks like:


    And this is what it would look like at your size:


    Do you look like that? If not, you probably do not have sub 5% body fat. 10% is more likely if you have anything that even approaches a belly, 7-8% is six pack territory for most people.
