    Dr. Jekyll/Mr Hyde are some of my favorite too. I just got some Pulse though, some new one by Dymatize (cotton candy) and another I can't remember right now. Still like Dr. Jekyll though, will always keep a tub on hand

    Over the past few weeks I’ve been able to add on some mass and start to get a little more definition. The gut however is resisting the process lol. Guess it’s time to add in some hiit.

    Only one way to tackle actually getting lean: track your food. You'll never outrun your stomach

    Very true. I don’t run though because it sucks lol. Eating clean is definitely necessary to leaning out, it’s just hard to stay disciplined doing it.

    I am 26 and was doing HIIT 4x/week along with my workouts, and eating a healthy 3000-3400cal/day expecting the good food and extra cardio would lean me out while I built muscle to get up to 200lb and defined. For 6 months I just got heavier and puffy looking, I thought for sure my decent genetics and young age I'd be able to pull this off but realistically you just can't.

    Stopped cardio altogether, got into a calorie deficit, switched to lifting just 4x/week, slowly lost ~1-2lb/week and got under 10% bodyfat. No cardio. I f*ing hate it so I was happy that just through a steady deficit I was continuing to lean out.

    Yeah hard to stay motivated I definitely understand that one...for me it was just an internal question of how bad do I want it, and why do I want it. I want to be in excellent shape even at 40, and still lifting. I don't want to be out of shape and playing catch-up at that point, cause I know it'll be harder. Reason enough for me to put in the effort using MFP, learning/buying shit to meal prep, doing it every week, and find healthy recipes to mimic all the delicious food out there. That was key for sure. Really helps kill the cravings.

    Pretty interesting how your body can do crazy things like go into starvation mode and slow down the metabolism if not enough calories are being taken in and make you either gain or maintain weight. TDEE Calculator can help figure out your bmr. It can be tricky to find out the best way to get to where you want to be, especially after your 20’s are over lol. So many variables, and everybody’s body is different. But one thing is for sure though, eating right is at the top of the list. What’s your height?

    Yeah there's tons of calculators out there, but like you said everyone is different. The most accurate and relevant way is just religiously start tracking everything, and then if you're gaining or losing weight, cut/add cals by 100/week until you are eating a consistent level and weight isn't changing from week to week. 3 weeks of no movement is a pretty good indicator you found your maintenance cals. Then just cut or bulk from there, but usually everyone wants to cut down some first.

    I'm 6'0"

    Hardest part is wanting to bulk but needing to cut at the same time.

    Yeah, the decision is tough. I'm not sure how my reverse diet is going to go while trying to build back up towards 200lb. Hoping I stay this lean.

    You could always just use the excess calories now as a good buffer/safety net to help as you get used to eating the right nutrition and bulk about 10-20lb heavier than you want to be, and cut down from there.

    @357sig how do you feel about people going from once piece of equipment to another one between sets? Like doing bench and then over to the squat rack for something after and then back to bench? It low key annoys me cause other people gotta wait on you lol
