    Hey guys I really need your help here in losing my love handles. To start with ever since I remember Iíve been having love handles so gained my name flubber in primary school. I have been working out hard for 3 years straight now but never have I been able to lose my flab of S*** around my waist, But I did gain lot of experience and knowledge from 3 continuous years of failure. Later I decided to stop trying to lose the fat and gain some serious mass apart from the fat. I did a 10 week cycle of test-e while carrying 18% BF which was again a terrible mistake but I did put on 14 Kg while gaining 2% BFÖAnd been able to keep almost all the gains after PCT while losing 2 kg.

    Well, adding more fibrous veggies to your diet would definitely benefit you. I say eat as many veggies as you can- they will only help you lose fat and provide a great amount of vitamins and minerals.

    As for your training routine: I would suggest dropping the one that you currently have, and starting up a 3-4 day/week full body routine. With your goal, you will likely see more results sooner by doing a full body routine. Doing compound movements every time you lift will help you lose fat much quicker. Squats, Deadlifts, Rows, Chin Ups, Pull Ups, Dips, Bench, Lunges, Step Ups, Clean and Press are all some great movements to incorporate into one's weekly full body routines. The more muscles a movement incorporates, the better it will be for burning fat.

    Lifting 5 days a week is overkill if you decide on doing full body routines. 3-4 days a week is quite sufficient. Adding cardio will definitely help with fat loss. I'd suggest doing HIIT Sprints on your off days from lifting.

    You could definitely take some kind of energy supplement pre workout to help you all the way through lifting and afterward. I really like X-Force- it helps with Mood enhancement, energy boosting and fat loss as well.

    I have been adding quite a lot of veggies now, the subway salad's seem pretty good (obviously no sauce).
    Thanks for ur input will throw in more compound exercises , frankly I have never been a fan of full body workouts, but I have been hearing this often to try full body workouts during cutting. I will look it up and lets see if it could get me where I want faster.

    Food will help for sure! You should really expect to be worn out after lifting. If you aren't more tired than when you started, your workouts probably are not difficult enough!

    On checking out the sugar free red bull doesn't actually have much carbs!so u think that would do?
    For some reason i think simple carbs after workout do wonders for me in terms of growth and recovery, but yeah will give almonds a shot.

    Have you ever thought of making your own intra workout or post workout shake? Picking up some malto dextrin and dextrose and adding some BCAAs will make you a great shake. I make my own intra workout shake every time I work out. It makes a significant difference for me.

    As it is I taken caffeine pre workout and it seems to do its job.As i'v already told after workouts I'm worn really bad especially on low carb days I literally see stars in locker room it starts to fade away once I consume red bull...
    And by the way I don't drink the big can of red bull, this is a classic tin one.
    And my protein shake consists of BCAA,GLutamine ...And on days i don't consume red bull I add dextrose mono hydrate..
