    Weightloss while keepin muscle


    I have been in the weight liftin game for awhile. My body is so weird tho, when I cut I have the hardest time keepin muscle mass. I cut at around 3000 calories a day (clean food of course) and even at that calorie intake my muscles still seem to shrink damn faster that my belly fat. I usually drop my carbs during cuttin a little under my protein intake, keepin protein around 300g a day. Anyone got any tips?

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    Is this true even if I go to bed about 1 or 2 hours after lifting?

    If you go to bed not long after your post workout meal you'll have to do two meals prior to your workout each around 25% of your total calories and still have the remaining 50% of your calories post workout.

    To maintain muscle mass, try supplementing Ostarine... I've found it super effective as an anti-catabolic (it's also slightly anabolic itself, and is non-steroidal so requires no support supps) Iron Mag Labs sells Osta Rx or you can buy it as a peptide-type liquid from companies that sell that stuff.

    I've been eating one meal a day and drinking coffee/water and that's been helping me drop some pounds. Good luck!
