    Exclamation Cut and Bulk Simultaneously??

    I need help and some advice on a rather different situation. I’ve been contemplating whether i want reduce my body fat % to any 15%. I float between 172-175 lbs, with roughly 20-22% body fat, but most of my weight is in my thighs. I have relatively skinny arms, but they’re sorta toned.

    My goals are to increase the size of my arms and shoulders, have visible abs, and reducing the size of my legs. I’m not sure if it’s possible, but i am looking for some advice or tips. Here is where i run into some bumps: i have mild patellar tendinitis in my left knee, and since i’m in the military, i have to do physical training during the week for 60-90 minutes, so i can’t have rest days from monday to friday. i also have to maintain my ability to run 2 miles within 15 minutes. I’ve been doing a push-pull-legs schedule (push-monday, pull-wednesday, legs-friday). I run after my workout every other day (when i can since my knee has pain), and the days that i don’t run, i do some sort of cardio machine or swim after every workout. What would be the best program, ideas, or any advice that you can give? Anything would be appreciated! Thank you all 🙏🏾

    I wouldn’t run a push pull legs routine. Your schedule is perfect for full body 3x a week. Fierce 5, GSLP, Vikings etc. At 20%+ body fat I would definitely cut. If you’re fairly new to weight training you could get away with body recomp.

    From what I can see, this looks fine to me. You seem to have a good handle on the working out part and are you resting the whole weekend then? What's your nutrition like? And on the days you lift, what exactly are the exercises you do and how many sets/reps?
    Progress, not perfection. One day at a time.

    Nothing different here, you just genetically carry fat on your legs. You still need to train them BTW - this is not an excuse to avoid lower body training.

    Otherwise, same as everyone else, run phases of fat loss and muscle gain for the whole body.
