That stubborn layer !!

Hi folks. Fairly new to serious weight trainiing, though not to endurance stuff. I'd like to hear your opinions on the best ways to remove that final layer of fat that just obscures the six pack we all secretly have. I'm used to running/rowing/cycling medium distance and know this is a good way of fat stripping combined with diet, but would like to keep my little bit of hard-earned muscle mass. I'm using weight gain shakes/whey isolate and eat a high protein/low carb diet, and would like to keep increasing lean muscle.
What are your opinions on "fat strippers" versus increased cardio and low carb diet ??

    Hi mate, welcome to MT .

    I hear you bro, that last bit of stubborn fat can be quite difficult. When it comes down to it, diet and cardio need to be in the right format to lose fat, but if you have that sorted, then it can be very hard to wait for those last bits of stubborn fat to come off. I don't know what your diet is like, so it might be worth posting it in the diet section for critiquing, but if it is sorted, there are some other options. Here are a few:

    - Switching up the diet. For example, low carb, introducing re-feeds, etc. Carb cycling, TDK, etc.
    - Moving onto supps, the best things are going to be an ECA type stack or even clenbuterol (see 'Other sports enhancing drugs' forums). ECA can kick start that stubborn fat loss if diet and cardio are sorted, and can also help a bit towards holding onto muscle.
    - Other more OTC supps, such as lean Xtreme by designer supps, sesathin by avant labs - both have fairly good reviews.
    - HIIT (high intensity interval training) - introducing this to your cardio regime

    These are just a few I can think of now - I'm tired so brain isn't all there! Good luck, and hope this helps.

    Cheers for the response ! My diet does suffer from the fact that I work offshore and the "healthy "options are not always that, and I'm partial to a fry up. Other than that I keep carbs to a minimum .
    I think I'm going to try the HIT and maybe a little more running, though I would be keen to hear what people have to say about fat strippers, their effectiveness and their effects good and bad.

    this looks like a good deal:
    http://www.supplement-select.co.uk/product/asp/ProdID/1185/CtgID/1040/af/page.htm

    I had bin running Dicana along side Hydroxytrim and was going great guns, but HT started to mess with me a bit, weirfd moods, some shrinkage and temporary loss of full function downstairs, girl freind not impressed with either side effect. I hear sida is not as strong, never tried it myself tho. but i recon that stack, maybe some melting point(can't wait) would be the icing on a cake(metaphorical only) of clean diet and cardio.
