I've read a lot about working out. I understand getting big and losing weight is impossible to do at the same time.
My question is can I gain strength and lose weight at the same time? This is what I'm planning. I'm going to do weight training (4 day split: chest/tries; back/bis; shoulders; and maybe legs, depending on how this will work in with cardio), and cardio after my weight training 4x/wk. I'm not trying to add a lot of mass at this point, just need to lose the beer belly. What rep range should I be shooting for? I've typically had good results with strength gains at 6-8 reps on most of my compound exercises. Should I be shooting for more reps on each set? Is it worth my time to try to gain strength while creating a calorie deficit?
If it is possible to do this, will the additional strength help with a future bulking cycle?
