Heyy, quick question. Is it alright to do a workout program, for instance, the slim and trim boot camp. But I'm afraid I'll lose muscle mass as well, so I'll throw in isolated exercises in between days to work my muscles. But of course leave Saturdays and Sunday out to let my muscles recover. Will I reduce my body fat percentage, as well as build up muscles this way?
So you want to slim down without losing muscle mass?
Try strength training, this could very well help your muscles to grow and also helps with losing body fat, just stick to maximum of 2 "junkdays" concerning food. I would suggest to do bootcamps with strength and endurance.
Hope this helps, good luck!
What I did was drink lots of water. Where I live the tapwater is drinkable and I drink a glass before and after every meal, when I get up in the morning and before I go to sleep at night. This helps your body to keep on working so slowly but certain it will use the energy in your fat reserves to process the water. Eventually your bodyfat percentage will be balanced if you use your body the right way.
Combine this everyday drill with training the largest muscle groups that need the most energy to recover(quads, back, chest), which they will take out of your bodyfat and you have a very good chance to see your abbs. You can do abb training if you want to get the definition to pop out, just remember to also keep the balance by training your lower back. I don't do very much abb training myself, I just try to be aware of what I eat:-).
I wouldn't know what my fat percentage is...
if you lose weight (cut) you will lose some muscle mass and if you but muscle mass on (bulk) you will gain fat, there is no changing it.
it is all about finding mediums like taking enough protein and building/maintaining muscle while you are on your cutting cycle also when starting a bulking cycle making sure you are at or below 10% body fat and bulking on a diet with little to no fats so when you reach your disired muscle mass (keep in mind the muscle loss during your last cutting cycle)
so as i see it atm you are wanting to do a cutting cycle before a bulk and want to do intence cardio without loseing muscle mass, sorry but it will not work but you will be able to not lose much if you continue to lift and take diet serious
remember count cals, drink the right water and have the right daily protein.
