I know, i think i tried to say that. I lose my direction when i answer questions on here and ramble on saying other crap lol Happy
And yeah they will, but what if they lost weight slower? Less of a calorie deficit - less strength loss? Maybe.
Depends how quick they want to get lean i guess.

Correct. If you lose weight slowly, then any loss of strength shouldnt be to drastic. Its probably better getting lean slowly, as I find it easier to hold on to any of your muscle. If you hammer intense cardio for 5 or 6 days a week, you will ultimately loose some of your muscle and you will not have proper recovery to continue getting stronger.

Yeah true, but i dont think being heavy as fook will answer all your strength questions. If the only way to get stronger is to get fat as f**k, id address other issues with your training.
You may then reach a point where its necessary to bulk like hell to get strength increases, but i think that average Joe thinks that "oh hes heavier so he can lift more" not necessarily.
I say "you" i dont mean YOU lool, i mean people in general.
I certainly fell into the trap of "im a powerlifter, i can eat loads" (in my powerlifting days lol) and i didnt gain a great deal. Now im far fitter, and faster and stronger Happy

Well look at some of the strong guys on this board that dont weigh much. Shows you can still be very strong while being extra lean. However a lot of people have to diet hard and do loads of cardio to get lean, so they will lose strength if getting lean is their priorty.

i once was fat (95kg) and moderately strong (for age and stuff), Im now lighter, less BF and stronger.
Fat dont lift weights, muscle does Happy If i was 95kg at 10% bf (around the BF i am now) then yes, id be stronger. But thats not being fat Happy
Does that even answer your question? I dont even know. But yes.
If you dont care about bodyfat %'s then yes, eat loads because calories + rest + training = strength gains.

Extra weight on top of muscle will always be benifical for strength, but obviously some people can still put on more muscle while losing weight, so will probably therefore be stronger than before

Me too, 5/3/1 has helped my pbs out no end, I'm 16 cycles in Cool

It is good if you do exactly what it says. Im onto fourth training cycle now, so still very easy, i also started off a bit lighter than the 85-90% of training max. The plan is to try and run it for a full year, then retest my maxes then. Hopefully they will have gone up a fair bit

Simeon said:crikey. More and more insane raw lifts being put up these days

Big respect for any equipped lifters that put up huge numbers, but nothing beats watching huge numbers being lifted raw imo!

Time to Man Up

I’m going to have to give you some Tough Lust here (no lube or spit). First, I need for you to re-read this article, especially this part:

“Where performance and kicking ass are more important than how you look. Where people eat to live, not live to eat. Where trucks are pushed and sleds are pulled. Where reps and weight are counted, calories are not. Where running isn’t “cardio, it’s part of training and if you’re going to walk for your conditioning you best have something on your back or in your hands”

You admit that you are not strong enough (many of us feel this way but understand that it is an ongoing process and that THIS process is important). But please DO NOT be that guy who talks about where he holds his fat or how his legs or “obliques” are fattier than they should be. Where has our gender gone?

What I would prescribe for you is to get rid of all these silly, pathetic and disgusting notions of what you think a man should look like and start over. I’m going to give everyone a huge hint here: no one gives a s**t what you look like. Now I’m not saying being a fat slob doesn’t raise some eyebrows in disgust, but if you kick as much ass as possible in the weight room and conditioning field AND start OWNING the f**k out of your given “sport” (you better start competing and making your training count), you will not only LOOK better but you will feel better. People are not attracted to vanity – they are attracted to confidence and passion. No one owns a room by the way they look; it’s how they carry themselves.

There is so much more to this, but PLEASE don’t talk about your love handles. Talk about your passions in life, talk about how you’ve moved boulders, talk about the books you’ve read, talk about the world’s you’ve changed. You have the passion for training, start making this s**t count.

I know this is probably way off topic then what you wanted but I’m trying hard to get rid of all this bulls**t that is plaguing SO MANY men, young men and boys. So in conclusion, I recommend this:

1. Stretch 2. Lift 3. Sprint

Do this all the time – no bulking, no cutting, no bulls**t. Just training for being a motherf**ker. Don’t be that guy that takes shirtless photos of himself so other men can drool on them. That s**t is a disgrace to every man that has done anything awesome in his life – while they were busy “doing” these shirtless ‘tards were busy trying to look the part. Get off the bench and get on the field.

Great inspirational read!

I suppose so man. i dont get the whole genetics phenomenon though, im long limbed as f**k and not exactly huge with a tiny chest but i still have a good bench lol, (probably close to 180 right now)
i think thats purely down to wanting it lol

Your a determined guy then. If I was a coach, give me the guy that will give everything over the lazy talented guy who just doesn't want it enough. Genetics are only useful if you have the right mentality to push beyond your limits.
