Who do I listen to?
Hi, y'all. I have an ultimatum: I want to get bigger (more than cut). I would like to get rid of about 20-30 lbs of fat. I am taking a weightlifting class at my college, where my coach has us do goal-specific exercises (big or cut), both using supersets. He has us do 8 reps and 3 sets. He discourages the use of isolation-type exercises, such as preacher curls and so on. Also, he says we should not do cardio too heavily-8-10 mins per workout, that the additional muscle will 'eat' the rest of the fat away. Then, I met this guy at Gold's, let's call him Gold. He is huge bodybuilding competitor! Gold is training me on non-school days. He suggests that I avoid heavy (training) weights, and do high-reps and low weights, and cardio until I get thin. Then, I should start bulking up. I have already started noticing results from the college program, but I don't want to lose the strength gains that I have made. Any ideas? TIA, John

I don't think the coach is really correct in what he is telling you as far as the why's of it. BUT what matters is what happens. Results speak for themselves.
Most of the time a coach is probable a better bet than some guy at Gold's....huge competitor or not.
