    need to lose belly (visceral) fat

    i'm in the middle of my first blast right now, even though i'm only 170 and pretty much lean all over pre-blast i was 15.74% BF (tested underwater) all my fat is in my belly, i think i last measured it recently at 34" at night when i look bloated it looks much bigger. right now i'm in the middle of a blast 500mg/test and i started var a few weeks ago, i have about a month left.

    i've heard var is supposed to target the abdominal fat (i'm taking 50mg/day for 7 weeks) but, i have a feeling it's going to be difficult for me, maybe from the years of drinking and bad diet etc. so after this blast i want to try to get rid of this belly fat before I start on my 2nd blast.

    which would be the best compound for fat loss for my situation. couple things i wanted to note, i've heard of clen and there are mixed thoughts from what i've read some say its' dangerous some day not depending on the dosage. i don't want to risk any cardiovascular issues, it's possible i might have pre-existing issues when i was younger i was used to do a lot of recreational's, coke etc. and so i get chest pains around my heart sometimes, and i guess they are called palpitations i'm not sure. though when i started taking 81mg asprin daily it seems to have helped a lot, and they are pretty much gone now.

    i still want to play it safe as possible and want to take anything that could have an effect on my cardiovascular (if there is anything out there like that). also i don't want anything that is going to make me look like a crack head, any shaking etc. because i'm high strung as it is, and have anxiety issues, am shaky sometimes from the drinking in the past, so i dont want to make any of these issues even worst. like i've heard on clen you get the shakes etc. ?



    so is there anything that would still work for me based on what i said?

    also lastely, i want to keep bulking obviously since i'm only 170 pounds so i know for cutting your'e supposed to go into a caloric deficit but, technically i dont want to cut because really i don't have much to cut i'm only 170. once i bulk up big then yes i want to do a real cut at a caloric deficit etc. but for now i want to continue bulking and eating about 3000 clean calories a day to put on muscle. i just want to lose the belly fat (speed up fat loss) is this possible?

    if none of these options will be possible for me based on what i said. should i just continue bulking as is and hope that the muscle will start burning that fat?

    thanks

    I wouldnt count on a compound to do that for you. Focus on diet, eating clean, cardio and training. Clean diet and sustained Ab work got rid of my gut long before I ever pinned.

    yeah but, I'm bulking and planning on bulking for a while since I'm only 170 and in order to diet down I'll have to be at a caloric defeciet. Right now I need to eat on a caloric surplus to gain mass. So, should I just continue bulking and then do an actual cut later on? Only thing that concerns me is if I'm continuing to bulk and if my stomach keeps getting bigger but, it shouldn't if I'm eating clean? My next blast I want to do NPP and I know it's supposed to have less bloat than deca but, if for some reason I do get more than usual bloat I don't want my stomach to look huge.

    Re: need to lose belly (visceral) fat

    Short answer....if you want to bulk, your going to have to wait to cut. If your eating "clean" you should not have excess fat buildup.

    If you decide to include compounds that make you bloat in this cycle or the next, you will just have to be patient and deal with it. The bloat will subside but you can keep it at a minimum (diet, E2, etc).

    If you are MORE cocerned about the body fat, don't continue bulking, cut. Continue to eat clean, cardio, etc. You don't necessarily HAVE to be in caloric deficit to get rid of fat, but bulking, while trying to cut fat will be a difficult if not damn near impossible achievement.

    The var should help a bit but DIET is going to be #1 in accomplishing your goal! Obviously cardio too, but again bulking and trying to cut at the same time just ain't gonna happen.

    With that said, I am currently on a test only cycle. Will be starting var in a couple days to finish off the last 6 weeks or so. I have been eating VERY clean and gainig mass/weight with little to no change in BF.

    If you are actually eating clean just continue to bulk, keeping BF down or the same, and shred thyself in the future brother!

    BTW...how's the high BP been?

    Re: need to lose belly (visceral) fat

    Im bulking also, but eating clean. But my BF wasnt as high when I started cycle. with training my gut gets tighter. And Im on TPP/NPP. so eat your surplus, but clean, train and dont forget cardio (i like low intensity post workout or AM fasted- about 30mins) and ab work. Bulk up then cut...Even with bloat from the bulk youre stomach wont look huge . At the cut you can consider var, mast, tren (If youre ready), test prop, increasing cardio, etc. I would drop the var at the moment. Not doing anything.

    Another option, and amybe a better one, is continue to eat clean and finish this bulk and get whaterver lean results you can..then focus on busting your gut and getting lean and dropping that BF. At that point you might want to consider a leaner bulk before considering a cut. No one gets their ultimate results after one bulk and cut, so wouldnt look at it that way.
    Wont be easy after youre admiited years of drinking and bad diet, so will take time and hard work. Might also consider Spongys help..hes planning my diet as we speak.

    Re: need to lose belly (visceral) fat

    That is a good point by piro of the shorter estered test for cutting....You should consider that for the future.

    I am actually using test prop now, but for lean bulk.

    EOD injections gets old quick but it has helped the success in my LEAN and CLEAN bulk thus far, with less bloat (than a longer estered Test), and keeping my BF at around the same %.

    I also am a fan of short esters eod when doing lean bulks...keeps BF in check very well and makes cutting later easier

    Re: need to lose belly (visceral) fat

    Thanks for the replies and helpful insight. I figured that might be the case, that I wouldn't be able to do both, get rid of the belly fat and bulk. I am eating clean, I am with Spongy and have been following his plan, my weight is going up but my stomach size is staying the same, my strength is going up in the gym and I'm putting on muscle in my arms, back etc. my stomach doesn't bother me in the mornings when I wake up but, I guess by night/evening I look quite bloated, then by morning it's gone again. I don't know if it's from all the food I'm eating throughout the day or in the evening before I go to sleep I drink about 3 liters of water, maybe that's the reason.

    But yeah I was hoping there was something like clen that I could take after this blast and inbetween my 2nd blast that I could use to burn fat. However, I guess just like for bulking there's not a chemical out that will just "bulk" you up, it has to do with diet and so cutting and losing fat must be the same, clen etc. can help you burn the fat but, you still have to get all your other ducks in a row.

    I think I'm just going to stick with bulking then, it will probably be a while though our goal with Spongy is 185 so it maybe until next year sometime. I guess I can only hope that putting on muscle will start burning more fat, and that area will start to slim down. I used to do the treadmill daily that's pretty much how I got down from 180 to 160 and then I stopped it for a while since I was trying to put on LBM but, now that my training is right I'm wanting to maybe continue cardio again at least on Tues/Thurs. it should also help with my BP since I have been having issues with it lately.

    I'm keeping a log of my BP, actually I should probably update it in that thread but, wanted to wait another week until I have some more numbers since I think taking these supplements and adding the cialis etc. may take a couple weeks to take effect. So far I'm hovering the same numbers in the 160's but, a couple days ago I saw a 138/75. I wasn't sure if if I tested myself correctly or messed something up, maybe the cuff wasn't on tight enough but, I do it pretty much the same way every night and am getting 160's. I got that powder supplement 3dranger had suggested for lowering BP, he said it took him a couple weeks to lower his BP and I just got it in a few days ago so will wait a bit to see how it goes and then will update the thread with my progress.

    Also that's good to know that shorter esters are better for leaner bulks? I'm planning on NPP next blast. Only reason I'm hestiant to try shorter esters is because I've heard the pip is a lot worst? Like I know with prop there's a lot of complaints until people get used to it etc. I don't like pip at all, I don't like limping around and it effecting my day to day. Or else I was considering NPP/TPP. I may still consider it though if it will help in staying lean.

    Also I think the var is helping, I'm definately seeing strength increase in the gym (then again maybe it's the test, it's hard to say when you're running both at the first time but, I'm making lean gains my weight is going up consistently and reps/weight going up in the gym as well). Var isn't only for cutting many people use it for bulking (lean bulks) as well. I hope it will help with my belly fat also, I think I started it about a month ago so I'm probably about half way through, maybe by now is when it should be kicking in.

    hard work is needed for this, not another compound...diet and HIIT will get you there in no time!

    ^^^^^^ This ^^^^^^

    I will add that doing compound lifts - specifically Dead Lifts and Squats do great things for abs. Remember leg day you are working your LARGEST muscle group.... get your money's worth on leg day... back day is number two.... wear that shit out. Only muscle burns calories... build it. Meanwhile... DIET is 75% of it....

    Much Respect,

    When you reach a point where conventional methods no longer work stepping up the intensity has a tremendous response. Try wind sprints in 20 - 30 second bursts.
