aight , here are a few pics taken from 2 weeks earlier (10 weeks outs out). I will have some more pics I plan on May 14 or so with some more progress.

What is the shoot for? I'm looking to find someone else training for fitness modeling so we can share tips and goals, etc.

I have a photo shoot in 11 weeks - and am concerned since I am at 11% now. Doing cardio twice a day. Photo shoot is for a Bodybuilding book

I could say u would lose 1.5 lbs a week and retain all/if not most muscle.. what are your stats?
05-05-2006, 03:13 PM
5'11", 200 lbs, 11%BF all clean foods in the diet: egg whites, cream of rice, brown rice, sweet potato, chicken and fish - (more fish as I get closer to the show). Been working out for 4 yrs - just coming off 4 weeks of SD - so going into PCT - with nolvadex & Clomid. Workouts have been good - but stress has platued my losses. (48 yrs old)
05-05-2006, 03:16 PM
By the way - if you are right - I would be at 184lbs and a ripped 4%. Which is perfect - exactly what I want to do. Right now I seem to be retaining a lot of water from stress. May take a valum - but that takes a couple days to ware off and get the metabolism going again.

TheTest, what supplemts so you plan on taking the next 11 weeks to serve as cutting agents? Also, please post pics within this thread so we can both compare results over the duration of time we have left to get lean!
05-05-2006, 03:48 PM
Hear you go - CLA (prior to cardio), Lean Out (prior to every meal) & 7-Keto (both from Beverly Int) - prior to meals 1,3, &5, L-Carnitine (prior to cardio), Lypo from enzymedica. No stimulants (other than some coffee in the morning). I also take Stamino2 prior to cardio - ok, that could be a stimulant - great stuff and you only buzz for a little while. I was getting a long term rush from some creatine/NO supplements but I am off creatine now - I think it causes some bloating. More important to drink lots of water - 1.5 gallons hopefully. I will get some pics over the weekend - all I have is some from a few months ago at 15% bf - not a pretty site.

I understand... I started out from 220... this was in January.. I have done it spread out so long to make sure I did not lose any muscle; it seems to be working great... Please post the pics when you get them, I am excited about this thread
05-06-2006, 03:18 PM
05-06-2006, 03:23 PM
Here is a couple months ago at 15.5%
I was about 212lbs, 5'11"
05-06-2006, 03:31 PM
I am working now on changing up my workouts - more focus on higher reps for quads to cut them. I got to 8% for my last photo shoot, has won a 3rd place at NPC at age 46 - definately needed to cut more.
05-06-2006, 05:45 PM
im curious how you guys got photo shoots and such, like how did you start off and what did you do.
05-06-2006, 11:29 PM
nice pics theTest// as far as me, I was noticed at a gym I work out at by a bodybuilder in my area/ He noticed I had great size and gave me some helpful tips to get lean. Eventualy, I met his personal photographer (bbpics.com) and I sent him test shots. It is all about connections in the industry and I am slowly working my way in
05-07-2006, 09:28 AM
In regards to the CLA, i love that stuff, and for me it works best when i take 1 gram after every solid food meal.So about 3-4 grams a day. It takes about a month or so to start really noticing it but once its kicks in it really kicks in. Also i've heard from some people that they hold a little more water when takeing NO2, just somthing for thought, good luck with the shoot bro.Originally Posted by THETEST

07-26-2006, 02:37 AM
Good progress there. The result was good, bud. Keep us updated on your progress!
07-26-2006, 06:12 AM
not bad at all, do you know what you will be doing for the next shoot
07-26-2006, 08:02 AM
Looking great - good job!!!! I have had to delay my shoot until after a show in Sept - I hit a plateau at 11.4 % and 10%, and am now at 9.4% - needed to go to two cardio sessions a day. I am also on some things that will make me hold some water - 5'11" 193lbs
07-26-2006, 09:27 AM
Hey the Thetest thanx... The last week of prep really got me dry as hell and made me appear very very lean. To anyone out there who wants to lose water for a shoot, I recommend dandelion leaf tea... I drank a gallon of that a day for the last 4 days before the shoot. That stuff is amazing.
07-26-2006, 09:29 AM
I will be doing a beach style shoot out in santa monica in march. It is 8 months away, so I know I will spend atleast the next 5 months doing a very lean bulk. I will aim to gain weight slowly so it wont make my last few weeks utter hell stripping the fat away.
07-26-2006, 10:39 AM
sounds like a plan. I also just started my bulking process. I will be trying to get to 225 for my wedding in Oct. I can't look like a skinny bastard in my pin stripe tux lol. So what is your calorie intake look like. I will be at 400 carb, 400 protein and around 50-75 fat
07-26-2006, 12:49 PM
wow ripped.. congrats on the wedding.. My caloric intake is a mirror image to your.. The carbs may be just a bit lower as I concentrate on my carbs (complex) pre workout, post workout, and the meal 2 an hr after the workout.. My fat is about the same.. I get most of it from natty peanut butter and ground turkey... mm natty peanut butter, I just got hungry, that stuff is amazing
07-26-2006, 01:19 PM
Ripped you tying the KNOT!!! Oh my congrats do you know what you are getting yourself into?
08-16-2006, 06:41 PM
Stay tuned... I have been selected as bodybuilding.com's transformation of the week and will have an article on their homepage either tonight or next Wednesday. When it is up, I will post a link with the mod's approval.
08-17-2006, 07:39 AM
Congrats!! Thats great - you deserve it. I had some delays in getting under 10% BF, and am in the 7s now - thanks for the advice on the tea. I am at 188lbs, and doing a lot of posing. Photo shoot is Sept 10th, so should be ready in time - eating Fish for most meals now and just cut the carbs in 1/2 yet still high in protein. Will post pics later. Take Care
