    lose skin problem!!!

    So I've worked my ass of for past yr and dropped from 238 to 189 now.. The problem is tht I'm leaning up a good bit but now I'm seeing lose skin in my lower adominal area. Am I still not lean enough to worry about it or should I b hitting abs hard now to shrink skin. My bf is about 15% so still have fat left

    1) The slower the drop in weight the better
    2) You'll be surprised how much tighter the skin gets sub-12%
    3) GH will prolly help with skin elasticity, but it'll take some time

    Re: lose skin problem!!!

    Yea the loss was over a year so wasn't crazy fast.. put on some decent muscle size which I think helped in other areas.. I plan on doing gh this winter with my bulk cycle.. so guess there's next spring to b shredded.. was looking to do a show later in yr but this def holds tht to a hault..

    Good shit on the weight loss. The skin is the hardest part to get right. Surgery is necessary sometimes depending on the look ur going for
    Stay consistent!

    Re: lose skin problem!!!

    Yea bro I have this issue too. bottom of my belly has just the last bit of loose skin it sucks..

    Use lotion with Vitamin E in it it seems to help.

    Do heavy weight abs this will make them pop even more abs are a muscle just like any other train them for strength and they will get bulky. Some guys say they want that tight look you get from massive amounts of reps I feel that does not work for me since there is loose skin I am gonna try and fill it out with some muscle just my thought on it though

    That loose skin also is probably fat bro skin is mad resilient it snaps back unless you were morbidly obese like 400lbs it will come back you wont need surgery to fix it . You need a even better diet . Its all about how bad you want it bro .. I am willing to live with the "loose skin" (fat) b/c I dont want to give up my cheat meals and beer. I am one good diet away from shredded and I guess I just dont care enough (yet) do u?

    I was told by a trainer that if you hold back and low belly fat like we do a carb cycling diet could help with it .. I would say if your gonna go that route talk to someone who knows there shit like spongy to get on a strict diet and get what your looking for
    Enjoy Your Ride!

    Congradulations on losing the weight.

    For me, It took about a year for the skin to tighten back up. I have read that the older you are, the longer it takes. I've also read that the amount of weight and the amount of years that you carry the weight are factors. Obviously, if you are extremely heavy for many years you may not be able to acheave your goal naturally and at this point surgry maybe the only option.

    Congrats on the weight loss.

    At your current BF, I would guess it's more fat than loose skin. When I went from 18 down to 13ish, the skin around my oblique area got pretty tight but my abdomen still had loose skin.....aka fat

    If its still flapping around at 10% I worry about it then...Lol

    Re: lose skin problem!!!

    it takes time to tighten that skin up but in most cases it will. your body fat is still too high for it to go away. 8-12 weeks is all it takes on disciplined diet, and cardio. its still summer you still have time to drop your fat% and tighten it up some more before a bulking cycle. then diet down hard in the spring and you should be where you want to be by next summer.
