Please help an early novice here!
I'm fat (28%bf, 170lbs, 5'6'') and am following stronglifts 5x5 with some arm, forearm work. S:B:D is 143:95:225. I'm planning to cut down to 140lbs so I can lean bulk over 1-2 years to 150ish. So during my cut how much gains can I really expect? (My S:B:D some months ago was 200:170:270). Should I even cut that much weight? Please guide me.
Goals are: To get lean and stronger OR to milk out as much novice linear progression goals as possible and reducing as much fat as I possibly can or wosrst case: staying at the same body fat.
