    A Review of Bobo's Cutting Plan


    Well, I've just completed 8 weeks on Bobo's cutting plan, and I am very happy with the results. As of right now I've dropped 12.6lbs, and my strength has actually increased. I'm seeing details in my arms that I never had before, and I've been this lean

    I am a bit disappointed in myself for what happened before I started with Bobo. I had what appeared to be a very successful Superdrol cycle before I began with Bobo. What I had not anticipated accurately was the maniacal rush that I went through in wrapping up my Master's degree. During approx. weeks 2 and 3 of PCT I barely slept (2-4 hours per night) and ate tons of ****. I lost more muscle than I'd care to calculate, and gained lots of fat

    I learned a lesson, and will never cycle anything while I'm that busy. I've had the busiest year of my life by far, and I've made it through while still posting significant gains, so I am proud overall.

    Back to Bobo. What I found to be most remarkable is the fact that I almost never feel any sort of hunger on the plan. Just once or twice weekly. I can't believe how many carbs I can eat and still cut Interestingly, I had a conversation with Bobo about UD2 back in February. UD 2.0
    I remember finding it hard to believe that Bobo's approach could work as well as Lyle's complex diet. I lost fat at roughly the same rate.
    Bobo


    • Felt great
    • Loved workouts
    • Felt well recuperated
    • Had consistent energy
    • Did not use a single stimulant
    • Minimal bloat
    • Shoulder keeps getting better
    • Became quite lean in a fairly short period of time
    UD 2.0
    • Felt like ****
    • Despised workouts
    • Felt run down
    • Dragged ass
    • Sucked down EC Mon.-Thurs 3Xs daily
    • Holy carb load bloat
    • ****ed up my shouler again from training chest 4xs per week
    • Became quite lean in a fairly short period of time
    Yet another lesson learned : Drastic approaches are not best. I gained a wealth of knowledge from training with Bobo, and I highly reccommend his services. I will always use Bobo's methods in the future, perhaps only changing things up in the final weeks of a cut for aesthetic purposes.

    If you are a very busy person, having Bobo tell you what to eat and when to eat it is indispensable (I'm talking to you CDB ). This is a great investment, the lessons from which you will carry with you for future cuts. We all know Bobo's debate style. It also resembles his training style, which is actually quite effective for getting you to stop whining, shut up, and follow the ****ing program

    I will be testing Ectotropin-6 for IBE for the next month, which means I will continue to cut. Then I will have a superlean base from which to bulk. I will then bulk cleanly for 6-8 months My goal is to hit a relatively lean 195-200 by late March 2006. I can't wait to start bulking with Bobo.

    Before and After Pics


    Shoulder problems, inflamed by UD2, have held back my chest development. I should also point out that in the first pic I have some creepy acne thing going on, which I believe to have been stress induced from the closing, sleepless weeks of my Master's.

    Obviously, the first one is the before. And I did a ****ty job on the lat spread.

    Sounds awesome man! Good luck reaching your goal, mine's pretty similar, I'm aiming for 200 and lean by next summer. If I could afford it, I would hire Bobo, but I may have to hold off for awhile. How much money did you spend / week on food for your diet he had you on, if you don't mind me asking?

    I really suck at keeping track of finances, but it's not too expensive. You'll actually save $$$ if you eat out a lot b/c you are preparing all your own food.

    Holy **** bro! That's amazing... What's the time frame there? Only 8 weeks?! The lat spread really isn't that bad, better than mine would look Awesome job man, keep up the good work!

    And dude, you look like Collin Farrel in the 3rd pic

    I just figured it out, and I typically spend about $10 per day on food. Not bad at all. Of course, I buy most of it at BJ's or Costco, so you can buy bulk and it is cheaper. Bobo also doesn't go nuts on supps, so you'll save $$$ there too.

    That is an 8 week time frame with zero stimulants I look better a week later.

    As for the Colin Farrel thing, its funny you should say that. I've been hearing that for about 2 years now. I've actually been swarmed on by girls when walking out of a club in Boston. Funny ****. I'm surprised you see the resemblance in that pic as it was takenafter I had beenup forabout 18 hours, and I was exhausted. We're both dark Irish (obviously the dark doesn't referto the skin tone )

    that's what 13lbs of FAT looks like.

    Scale weight vs. FAT weight. Big difference and excellent job.

    I'm looking forward to using Bobo in August after vacation and a few wedding.

    I should have mentioned that I think there was some recomp going on. As I mentioned, strength went up in several lifts. I've probably lost fat and gained muscle. I can't wait to bulk

    That's awesome, bro. Congrats to you on your accomplishment, and thats one more notch on Bobo's wall of successes

    Really...that 13lbs of fat with absolutely no muscle loss and strength gain (which, IMHO == muscle gain) is incredible...

    How did the food ... uh .. "taste"

    Thanks, bro.

    I'm chowing on some pre-wo deliciousness right now. Honestly, the food is not bad. You just get used to it. The benefits outweigh the negatives to such a degree that I don't dread any part of the eating at all. The key is being prepared so that you take all your meals on time and avoid that ravenous hunger that leads to disaster. A few non-caloric tweaks to the menu and it's all good

    How much cardio is involved if you can say? I'd say 175 for the weight.

    Hey, imprez cheated. Damn clients ruining the game.

    173.8 it is

    I was hoping someone would say 190

    Back to reality

    BTW, I'm testing Ectotropin-6 for IBE, so it looks like I'll be cutting after all. I would love to get my bulk on, but hey, this is a good opportunity to try something new. Looks like I'll be peeled by August .

    Can't wait to start bulking. As of this time next year I will be at least 195 lbs. with abs

    Just wanted to say great job on your cutting program, Bobo must really work you into shape to be able to loose that fat and still keep all the muscle. May I ask what kind of weight training program you were working with, or is this privite??

    Private. Sorry, bro. There is a way to find out, but it'll cost you. Worth every damn cent too.

    I'm hiring Bobo in August for a 3 month cut with emphasis on maxium fat loss. Will be stabilizing for a month or two and then hiring him again for a full 1 year bulking plan.

    I want to compete in 07 and being 6'3" I need to pack on more size than I currently have (about 222 LEAN) in order compete against other heavy weights at 5'8/5'9

    That is awesome. I'm pretty tall too, 6'0. I would like to compete in a few years, but I definitely need to pack at least 20-30 lean lbs on before I can do so. I might shoot for '08.

    Good luck with it

    Thanks. We'll see how it goes.

    It's all just a theory for now, except for the cutting plan.

    I want to get married this year as well which will throw a nice wrinkle into the pocketbook but if I can afford to do it all then I'll hopefully be on stage in 07.
