    ok hey guys this is my first post.

    i'm 25 176cm and currently weighing 111kg i have tried measuring bf with a tape measure got different readings between 21-24 percent, i work a job where i do walk around quite often always on my feet with some heavy lifting.

    my training is made up of
    warm up sets first of each excercise then actual work with a rest day between 1 and 2
    i normally do 2 classes of kickboxing weekly which is a lot of cardio but i find it good for strength also

    day 1
    5x3 squats (130kg)
    5x5 bench press (90kg)
    5x5 bent over rows (60kg)
    as many pull-up/chins as possible

    day 2
    5x3 squats (130kg)
    5x5 military press (55kg)
    1x5 deadlift (160kg)

    my diet is 2000 cal diveded by 3-4 meals
    200g pro
    carbs and fat make up the rest of my cals in no real order.

    i'm still not shedding body fat
    can anyone recommend any improvement? or even a complete change, i have struggled with weight my whole life and i just want to get to that 10-15%bf.
    4 years ago i did get down to 82kg but i wasn't ripped by any means more skinny fat really..

    thanks lads and ladets,
    regards rookie muscle

    Hey man
    First thing is I am no expert at all but will offer my thoughts
    To me your training looks pretty decent in fact it looks great , so given that you need to look at diet , personally I’ve just started a keto diet in order to cut BF , I still want to build lean muscle too , since I stopped carbs and sugar I’ve noticed a big difference , it’s only been a week and my BF is down but my weight is still 85kg , I’ve got some BHB salts and MTC oil now too and Gona go hard , I know the consensus is carbs are needed for muscle growth but read plenty of good stuff about how your body adapts when useing fats as fuel.
    Anyway just some good for thought for ya
