    im currently weighin in at 173lbs and 5'10. i am going on a beach trip with my gf and her fam in mid july and want to do whatever necessary to be in the best shape when her fam sees me in my bathin suit. i want to lower my bf yet at the same time i want to gain muscle mass.. im thinkin about going heavier and reducing the amount of reps i do on my workouts and incorporating cardio as well.

    i currently workout 4-5 days a week. how many days and how long should i do cardio for? my bf right now is 13% i have good abs but i need to reduce my bf to get better definition.

    thanks!

    muscle gain + fat loss = not possible, if you want to get cut, lower cals, do cardio three days a week + lifting 4 days a week and win at life

    I hate to say it, but you should really read the stickies. There is a ton of info in there.

    That being said, I'll answer your questions:

    Option 1: Go back in a time machine a year or two and start then.
    Option 2: Stop caring and go as-is, projecting an attitude of confidence and high self-esteem in who you are, regardless of your physique.

    Novel idea. Not sure if anyone around here has tried that yet. Check back in and let us know how it goes!
