    So am currently at a sort of crossroad..I have built quite a lot of muscle over the last months, but also a bit of bodyfat...

    I do wanna have a sixpack, but at the same time want to get bigger, and develop more muscle.
    I'm currently focused on cutting down to a sixpack and about 10% bodyfat, but I'm afraid that you won't see that anymore when I bulk up after this phase...

    any thoughts?

    Normally you are meant to bulk over winter and cut in spring, but I would say you should cut from where you are now. If you have never cut heavily, use this time to decide what level of vascularity feels too much to you. I personally don't like to have too veiny arms for example.

    Jeeesh, you're beautiful with or without the 6 pack... =)

    *Build definition*
    Ab exersises for 2 weeks hardcore.... (50 x 4) (200 plus situps per day)

    &

    *Melt the fat*
    Cardio...sweat to melt any fat....

    Increasing body heat to get that midsection cut...

    Any cardio, jog, or use a sauna to sweat it out!!!

    Good luck to you hottie!

    If Abs really are your priority, I would cut and then bulk up in a lean way.

    It would be very hard to bulk up and reduce body fat if you currently have a higher body percentage (eg 15% rather than 10%).

    It is definitely possible to bulk up without gaining too much fat if you do it slowly and add your calories slowly.

    Wrong, wrong, and wrong.

    Raising core temp, via whatever means (over dressing, heat belts, etc.) KILLS exercise performance and causes dehydration.

    Visible abs are a function of body fat levels...not reps. Everyone has a perfect set of abs if they get their fat low enough.

    HIIT is vastly more effective than static cardio, and fat reduction..AND...improves cardiac threshold, has higher metabolic rate introduction, preserves lean muscle mass, and prevents sudden death syndrome from extended cardio.

    Your urine should be clear. Dehydration makes it HARDER for you to lose fat, brings your heart raise up (messes your heart preload up..your heart can't get filled up), decreases your blood volume, and kills your performance.

    Don't bulk and cut. You're not competing for a bodybuilding competition. So why bother looking hot for a few months and then look fat/bloated the rest of the year?

    Stay lean and gradually add the muscle mass.
