If you dont track and know were you are at you have no idea if what you are doing is working or if just your arm to mouth is.

In my oppinion adding more than 20 lbs of fat weight over show weight (the natural pro BBer norm) is just adding fat cells that you will never ever loose and just that many more to shink down when you want to trim down or get cut.

There is no way I will burn threw 20 lbs of fat energy in one 35 set work out and tap into muscle.
So does that mean whilst you have sufficient fat to maintain you through a workout your body doesnt start breaking down the muscle. You hear so much of the you're body will go catabolic after an hour and the workouts will be counter productive, as the muscle starts to get used not the fat... and that you shouldnt do cardio after weights as that will burn the muscle away too...
