Thanks fellas I keep forgetting to update, organic chemistry is kicking my ass! Anyway after a 4 hour study session I did chest/back for some relief.
Honestly I only feel like highlighting my workout. So I got 65x10x4 on incline db bench and in was feeling so good. Also on db fly's I did a drop set, after every set, of a weight 20 lbs lighter. It really tore.my chest up. I've been taking that approach for my arms and my arms have grown so I applied the mechanism to my chest and boom! Success.
My lats were just flaring out from pull overs it felt so good. Great.pumps today.
I think its time I start carb cycling. I'm at that point where eating low carbs isn't doing as much as it did. So every 4-5 days I'll carb up slightly with 200g of carbs. Nothing crazy. I have veins in my lower abs and yet the definition isn't where I want it to be -___-. I lift abs with a good amount of volume and weight 4-5x a week at 10-15 reps and higher for obliques.
Any suggestions? I feel like if I have veins in my lower abs my bf % should be low therefore my abs shod be seen correct?

My abs are visible at high bf percentages, seems like when i cut down they dont get anymore visible

As an NPC Competitor and an Andro Factory sponsored athlete I definitely like weighted ab exercises but for higher reps 20-50 reps per set.

Ah today was a rest day so I decided to carb up and hit legs hard tomorrow with some cardio/abs and arms aux work. Going to hit it hard. Most likely swimming as well so stay tuned.
Also I'm about to increase volume, heavily. I'm ending my summer semester and can add huge volume to the last 3-4 weeks on lean cut. But **** I'm excited for pct as well! Great stack going on there as well!
All in all I may have to look into bulk up for the winter :]

Sounds good man. Hit it hard or not at all!
I definitely recommend Bulk-Up. I'm starting my 3rd week tomorrow at 9 caps a day. My strength is through the roof, up 3 lb at 3,500 calories as per my contest prep coach's plan and I'm leaning out so my calories are going up to 3,750 starting tomorrow.
Keep up the good work.

Strength is going up. I'm loving lean cut. My arms were exploding today. I don't know if its lean cut or not but I'm getting mood swings. I woke up angry, came home tired and now I feel almost depressed with highs and lows o_O lol maybe just a bad day. I'll update with pictures tomorrow!

Just take a look at progress pica from your worst condition to now. That'll cheer you up. Keep it up man!!! Good times await.

Ups and downs come and go but overall you're all good! Great place to start at btw, you're already lookin lean!

Thanks fellas. My diet yesterday : 90g of fats, 220g protein, 110g of carbs. I had an ice cream down at the beach which consisted of most of my carbs lol.
Today I'm crashing my carbs below 50g and its an off day so after work I'll hit cardio and abs and post the n00dz up after my session.
Once my summer class finished I'm going to swap over to the CKD diet and take it from there.

Ah very cool. I cycle my carbs when I get about six weeks out from a competition. Three day cycle high moderate low.

Let's get ready to rumble, finally out of work and ready to hot the gym and then study on this 95 degree day . Oh well. Anyone else find that hitting the gym hard before a study sesh helps them to dial in on what they're studying ?

So the power upper day was a success. Even though I'm quite congested I managed to increase the amount of reps on flat db press I did 85x5 for 3 sets as opposed to last week I could only get it up for 2-3 =D. My.pump was insane. When I was finishing my lift doing curls(lol) and dips my biceps hurt so bad I couldn't even move them o_O.
From my power lower day yesterday, I felt like sh1t . ended up not wanting to go to the gym so I forced myself and ended up PRing 285x3 on squats below parallel. Then also PRd on leg press, easily put up 500lbs of slow controlled reps and super settled them with 25lbs lunges. My legs are sore to say the least.
I'm glad this allergy cold I have is gone. I woke up feeling a whole lot better. Which is good because I hate the brain fog and being lethargic from congestion.
I weighed in at 172lbs this morning. Still looking lean, I'm looking to get to 168ish but of course the mirror is the true scale for us.

Killed chest/back. Ended up doing 70lbs on db incline which was also a PR. And all other weight has gone up. More progress pics taken in the morning before breakfast.
My arms and traps have grown a good amount and my back is getting leaner as well. Abs are popping out, however its hard to see in the picture for some reason.

So im down to 171 lbs, came out of a bulk at 185, so im doing pretty damn good. I actually gained lean muscle and lost a hefty amount of fat o_0. Doesnt get much better than that fellas. Yesterday was a rest day so i ran sprints (lol "rest day") and did abs today it is upper body power, time to murder that bitch!
Im really loving lean cut, im going to be sad when its over lol.
Question. Once my cycle is over do i start PCT the next day or do i wait a week? Also how shall i dose out everything (4 week PCT)
Erase 2/2/2/2 or 0/2/2/2(should i do 2 caps right off the bat or should i wait to add this in during week 2?)
Coq10 1/1/1/1 (in the morning)
usuall fish oil, multi etc.
I was actually just thinking my PCT is going to be a really fun natty test boost lol. actually cant wait for it
