    Not Your Typical Belly Fat Thread


    I know it's like a pool. I know it's the first to fill and the last to empty. I know, I know. But mine is out of line. My gut is arrogant and has an attitude problem. If you look at my face, arms, chest, cuts in my delts, you'd peg me at 16-18%. If I posted just my gut, you'd say "this belongs to a mind who is sitting at 35%." It's squishy, too. Not like the kind of gut that just protrudes, but won't shake much if smacked. If I smack my gut it goes for a while. Wtf.

    Haven't really needed to... I keep losing consistantly. Getting leaner everywhere else... and yeah, the gut's smaller than it was 90 pounds ago, but still so out of whack. Wonder if I just have to keep grinding.

    I would lower calories to 500 under maintenance and also do carb cycling + Sprints 3 times a week at 30/60 then bump it up to 60/120 by the third week also 8-10 Intervals.

    Just keep grinding, it'll come. Mine was the same way. I lost 35 lbs and my stomach looked the same, then lost 15 more lbs, which all seemed to come directly from my stomach.

    That does seem a bit strange... I'm wondering if you have a problem with your elastin production...

    What's your diet normally like? Also abdominal workouts? Did you lose a lot of weight recently?

    Depending on your posture, your posterior chain could be disproportionately stabilizing your upper body, and causing certain abdominal muscles to atrophy.

    Just a wild guess though, since I don't have much else to go on in regards to diet & training...

    Have you lost a large amount of weight already? It looks like your "gut" is just the aftermath of weight loss. Just keep working man it'll come. You need discipline and dedication. Take everyday and push towards your goals. You will get there.

    I've lost about 90 pounds in 18 months... and my diet has been... almost nothing. Lots of running, less than 1,000 cals/ day... I'm working on that now. I just started eating more. Clean, but just more. Started lifting again, too. Hadnt the entire 18 months. Ab workouts are non-existant. I always figured I shouldn't care about them until I'm approaching the leanness to be able to see them. :-/

    yeah seems, like more or less elasticity issues from what looks like a large amount of weight lost and your body is trying to catch up. Can't say for sure that this is it. A thought would be to see if you can find access to a bodpod or hydrostatic BF testing and get that done. It would give you a better understanding of where your actual bodyfat is and serve you well in adjusting diet and training. Also run it by your doc on your next check up I'm sure they could shed a bit more light on what going on. I know for me when I did my last cut from a heavy bulk I dropped around 40lb. of fat in about 4months and noticed that it took about 3 months after the loss for everything to really tighten up so....

    Honestly I would just keep on keeping on if you're still consistently losing weight. That elastic skin happens to pretty much everyone who goes through a big weight loss such as yourself. As you continue to dwindle down it may improve more and more. I don't know how much luck topicals will give you that issue, but if you look at this thread you can see what they did for firedrake:

    Availability of Abliderate and Eviscerate?

    It may be nigh impossible to find either product right now, but Dsade is bringing them to the Southland Performance line very shortly.

    I would recommend Abliderate Advanced first when it comes back on, but you may want to wait till you've dropped more to try the topical route.

    Well, if you're still losing weight that's a good sign; nevertheless, for localized fat burning, you should absolutely be incorporating an ab workout. My recommendation would be a core-intensive circuit for a few months, to try and activate any ventral obliques or stabilizers that may have atrophied.

    Also, some DMAE might help with your elasticity issues.

    Lot of good stuff here... I would love to find a bodpod up here... any North Jersey brahs get bodpod tes

    ts? Google has not helped. And I'll definitely start doing abs. My Wednesday and Saturday are cardio-only so now they'll be cardio and abs. I'll check out Abliderate as soon as it comes back.

    I thought it might have been a cortisol issue, but a bottle of LX really didn't blow my mind. Guess an work + Abliderate is the plan. Thanks, all.

    Definatly work your core, even if you cant yet see the results. A stronger core will enable you to lift more and generate higher forces, much more than a weak core can. You'll notice that if you throw a ball, for example, that your legs assist greatly in propelling the ball further. When you step or run you transfer that momentum through your core to your arms and then throw the ball. The stronger the core, the more momentum can pass to the arms from the legs.

    Of course this is only one example.

    Or a right cross, in my case. But you're right.
