Upper/Lower back fat, is it estrogen related?
I'm not trying to sound like an idiot, but I have some massive quantities of fat on my upper and lower back. I barely have any love handles and can pretty much see my abs, but my lower back is like having two 10lb sand bags of lard on each side. My upper back is not much better, and I have this weird glob of fat just below my neck. When I squat I just pop the bar on my fat hump and it stays there. I've used gear off and on for years and went through 4-5 years without access to anti e's. Is this what screwed me up? I'm already cleaning up my diet and starting to isolate my abs and lower back, but is there anything else I could be doing to get rid of this crap or just diet/cardio? I have plenty of Nolvadex and Arimidex on hand now. I'm currently just finishing my first week of a 10 week test-E only cycle at 500MGs weekly. Any advice is appreciated.
doesnt sound like estro. Buffalo hump is from corticosteroids - but I dont think thats what you are describing either. Probably just genetics. I store all my fat on my front chest and stomach - which looks like shit..
Yeah, probably just my genetics. Pretty funny, from the front I look pretty good but those ugly ass sandbags of lard on my lower back just kill the rear view. I'll take it off with diet and cardio, I was just afraid I made myself fall victim to female pattern fat distribution.
i dunno if this will work but, but in my experience i feel i definitely upped my rate of fat loss. i used one of those heat belts since the midsection area,to me, has the poorest circulation in my body. WITHOUT wearing a heatbelt (which is a material that seems like what a wet suit is made out of), i'll do cardio and at the end of the session theres no sweat marks on my lower stomach nor my back. WITH a heatbelt, i sweat from those areas like crazy. At that time i was doing 40min power-walkin treadmill and using NYC with .5mg ldex and yohimburn right after the shower. my body changed drastically i went from 217-183 in a month and a half. give it a shot, poor circulation sucks but im sure you can even out your back. and btw, now im using stacker2 (limited supplies w/ ephedra) and pure yohimbine hcl from www.supplementdirect.com they have 5mgpills/100 a bottle. but you buy ONE get ONE free. so its like 24 bucks with the shipping for 200 pills of 5mg yohimbine hcl pills..fuckn great deal in my opinion
Fatback McSwaney! sorry bro, dunno what to tell you
HaHa Ripper =) Should I be laughing at that though? And Explode I coincidentally picked up a couple of those belts last night before reading your post. I know it will come off it is just a very strange distribution of fat. IMHO anyway. Thanks for the advice, I haven't used those belts in about 6 years. I actually liked them.
genetics. just like flex wheeler held fat in his glutes in hams. everyone holds in a different place.
Hey Xplode, did you wear that belt while you slept? I've read several studies geared towards even the "compression wrap" factor. So thinking maybe I'll give it a whirl and wear it during workouts and while I sleep.
