Trust me, at 6'2" you could afford to add 33.6 lbs of muscle. You'd also look damn good at that weight too. It's a lot harder to add muscle than it is to burn fat so take the easy route if you wish, but I don't think you're going to be happy with the results.

^Are you sure you understand what results he wants? It doesn't sound to me like he wants that much muscle. As a matter of fact:

Despite what you find best for him, he only wants what he's saying he wants, and that's to cut down some.

dawt

I mean, I do not want to look like an endurance runner or anything, I know that through my lifting (yes, I am lifting) that I am gaining some muscle mass, but no matter how much muscle I gain, there will still be some fat covering it, and I want to eliminate that fat.

That's assuming you don't lose any fat at all throughout the entire phase, which probably isn't likely if you're truly pushing yourself.

This isn't a very difficult thing to do. The only thing you need to do is get a grasp on what you're eating. Find out how many Calories you eat a day, how much protein, fat and carbs you get as well. Try to balance those 3 out with around 30-40% of your calories coming from protein, 20-30% from fat and 30-40% from carbs. If you're eating more than 2,500 calories a day then drop your caloric intake about 500 Calories. Wait two weeks and see where you're at. If you haven't lost any fat, drop it another 250 Calories. Once you start losing fat, bump it back up a little and wait another 2 weeks. Eventually you'll get to the point where you're just barely maintaining and you'll be able to keep as much muscle as possible while still losing fat.

If you're eating less than 2,500 Calories a day and aren't losing fat, you need to evaluate your food choices. Get more whole, read foods, and less **** from boxes and bags. Eat plants and animals, nothing else. If you're that low and still not losing a decent bit of weight, you need to evaluate the food you're eating.

This is all assuming you are training as well.

You really shouldn't ever go below 2,000 Calories. Just starving yourself won't do anything but make you look soft and small, so pick up some weights and go do something that gets your heat rate up.

I'd do a 30 sprint, 60 jog. Not as hard as you would think.

Just tried it.

First sprint I went at probably 85% full energy, but the rest I went 100%. I feel weird doing full sprints on campus; people run here, but rarely do you see someone sprinting, I was getting weird looks . By the time I was on my sixth sprint, my sprint speed was barely faster than my regular jog even trying my hardest, so I guess it really wore me down well.

SizeOn is widely accepted to be one of the if not the best creatine product on the market, but i fail to see why it would have any noticeable affect on your bf%.

I know and i agree, my bench went up 40 pounds in 6 months. I dont know why it would either, but ever since i started taking it it lowered. I didnt really change my diet but oh yeah it definitely has been because of football.

In my experience, women are looking for a man who is more "cut" that just bulky. Well defined obliques and lower abs are some of the biggest turn ons for women, trust me.

I'm not sure about up north, but I know down here *****es love biceps. Not to mention a big chest and big back. They want a man who they feel can protect them. Not one who can fit into their jeans.

It's called being lucky. But I will say I have a little bit of a stomach, just a tiny one, but because I'm so big all around it works. I have a defined chest and wide shoulders, big arms and a wide upper back. It just fits together. The smaller you are the more one part like that is going to show.

From my experience it's not going to help. By all means keep doing it because it's going to benefit you in things like the squat and deadlift and just being able to function day to day, but getting abs to grow really isn't what you need, you just need to get rid of the fat on top. Like I said before, let everything else grow and you'll find that you'll look more put together with a little pudge or not.

a good easy exercise for HIIT is a burpee you can do a few variations and it will kick your ***. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7MGljX4bbps

hiit is good, so is reg cardio, fact is it doesn't matter what you do as long as you end up in a caloric deficit, energy can not be created or destroyed(ty newton) and thats whats calories are, on average if you lose 4 lbs 1 will be of muscle. you can go to myapex.com to fig out how many calories you should be taking in and adjust accordingly, I would drop by 500 which in a week would be 3500= 1 lb of fat. upping your caloric expenditure is the second part, you could just drop by 250 calories and add on 250 calories of output about 2.5 miles, but i would drop by 500 and add cardio, simple math really.

I'm sure at least one person finds it helpful, not everyone is an expert like yourself.
