    am i leaner this time?


    so the first pic is before my cut.. it's at 179lbs..

    after that i cut down to 168.. it's taken me 6 months to get up to 182lbs.. do i look leaner than i did at 179? i'm hoping so..

    tell me if my bulk was a waste..

    Lighting is not so great in 2nd pic, but I would say you look leaner in the 1st - only slightly around obliques. Great progress man, looking solid no homo...

    well that would actually mean i made no progress in nearly a year's time.. the first pic was a while back before my cut.. i cut and the 2nd pic is of me halfway through my bulk

    You have made progress bro, look more full. Like I said you look almost as lean as before IMO.

    1st pic your leaner... But 2nd pic you look better more full looking... Like me... I'm 200lbs butt arms are very small for how big my lats and chest are... So it's like I'm never making progress but people tell me I'm super thick (no homo)

    I think both look good. I see a problem with the photos though. It's been said, the lighting is different, which, as we know, creates a huge difference. Maybe your skin is not as tan. Another issue, you're holding your arms differently. Looks like you're pulling your shoulders up in the second pic. That makes it difficult to really tell how you're looking, as it gives your body a more narrow appearance at the shoulders, which could make your torso look more wide. It is also pulling your chest up, which is taking away definition there. Looking just below your belly button though, it appears you DID cut some fat from the first photo. Again, you are looking good. You gotta have continuity as far as lighting and tan in order for us to make a real informed judgement.

    thanks everyone.. yeah it's hard to tell cause during the summer i'm outside a lot and get really dark... well it's january and that doesn't happen too often and i get pretty pale lol..

    another thing i forgot about is the before picture was taken in the morning and as everyone knows you're tons leaner.. the after was taken at night so of course i'm retaining a bit. i feel confident that i put on some muscle. my diet was TONS better for this bulk than for any bulk i've ever done so i figure it's impossible for me to not have gained muscle.. at least i'm hoping
