    NICE! thats the RIGHT way to do it!! I lucked out and feel I didnt lose muscle! Good luck when you start your winter cycle! Are you looking to do a lean bulk, or taking a break and doing a dirty bulk?


  2. Wow - that's an amazing transformation in such a short period of time. You look great.

I didnt think it would come that quick for me either, but I guess my busted my chops enough !
    I think its critical for long term success to allow the occasional cheat, and then not overdo "making up for it". skipping meals the next day or other things like that just make it worse. You have to be able to have some cheat type meals occasionally just in doing family events or other celebrations or social events.

And anyways, the arms look WAY BETTER and bigger when they are pumped now !
    I am very pleasantly surprised that I don't think I lost too much mass at all!! Strength has stayed very close to normal! I guess these anti cort, anti e type supps really do work!! By the way, good luck on your diet when you start it, and hopefully you will be posting up some pics in the near future that will blow mine out of the water!
    Thanks for the words of encouragement brother. I'll definitely be recording my own diet and putting the end results up for the benefit of our forum members, like you have done here. I agree your arms do like siick.

    I'm curious what your average weight loss per week was in terms of poundage, and how much of a caloric deficit you had yourself in.

    PS- that back double bi avy is KILLER

  9. Great work, fatty.

    Seriously - great job.
    Curious what your stats are. I'm about 175 lbs myself. Not sure how tall you are though.

    Well I didn't guage the scale weight loss intially, but I have been guaging for a bout a month now. I weigh my self every Saturday morning before eating drinking anything. The average weight loss was about 2 pounds a week give or take. I am also weighing my self on Monday mornings before eating anything, to see how much weight I put on during my carb up. I have splurged a little too much on carb ups like 2 times by throwing in some junk food(Pizza ) etc., and have been disappointed because I added more weight than I wanted to. But by the end of the week, I was down another pound or two! So I guess it wasn't too bad, LOL!! As for calorie deficit......compared to what I was eating prior to me starting my diet...... a HUGE deficit!! Pizza, Taco Bell, Baskin Robbins, and things like that, REALLy tack on the calories! I was basically just trying to concern my self with the amounts of protein I was taking in, and keeping track of my carbs making sure they were low. The fats I was getting from Peanuts, Cashews, Almonds, Fish oil and CLA and didn't give it too much thaught.

    Thanks for the positive feed back! ( even though you called me fatty , LOL!!) I'm 5'10" and am weighing around 171-172 right now. I will be lower though by the weekend when I am depleted of course. Havent taken any measurements, but I'm gonna grab a tape measure today, and take down some numbers. How tall are you , bro? By the way, that arm in your avy is looking pretty big and lean!! How big are your arms?

  12. Great job bro, you diet is somewhat of a CKD plan, correct? Thats what i gto from it all.

    Yeah, I guess you are right about that! I thought about the CKD, but just went with my own make shift diet. But other than me watching to see if I'm in Ketosis, I guess it is the same as a CKD! My goal was just to simply keep carbs low and from complex/ fiber filled sources, protien high, good fats moderate to high.

    Cool, thanks for the reply. I myself am going to be cutting useing CKD and after seeing your results I have even more confidence it'll go smoothly. And I'll start looking more like Swole175, lol.

  15. When I last tried a CKD, I found it so hard to get enough fats in (even with the low carbs) to go ketogenic. Now with the hyperdosed fish oils, I think I can tho. hmmm

  16. Great progress Swole! How often did you carb up? and did you do a 1 day or 2 day carb up?

    Thanks bro! I carb up (usually) once a week. I do a 1 day carb up, but sometimes it kind of plays out into 2 days. FOr example, I might stat carbing up on Saturday night, and continue Sunday morning. Then starting Sunday afternoon, it back to the low stuff!

  18. Sick!!! Very impressive Swole!

  19. impressed here as well, not sure if you mentioned it but how many calories a day are you at?

    also you said full body 3x week, what kind of mix of exercises do you throw in, and rep./set range...

    Great Job

    Great Job
    I'm really not sure at what my caloric intake is, as I have been going by portions I'm gonna have to look into that now. Anywho, I have six meals a da, and right now my diet looks kind of like this

    Meal1- 7 eggwhites (1whole egg), 6.5 oz grapefruit, 2 tbl spoons natty peanut butter.

    Meal2- Chicken breast, 18 Almonds

    Meal 3- Chicken breast and either string beans or brocolli, 18 almonds

    Meal 4- 7 egg whites(1 whole egg) 2 tbl spoons natty peanut butter

    Meal5- chicken breast, string beans, 18 Almonds

    Meal 6- Chicken beast, Romain lettuce(Olive oil, Lime and Vniegar) 18 Almonds

    Sometimes meall 6 will have no veggies in it, just chicken and Almonds. I got this type of diet plan form the guys at Scivation, namely Marc, as this is kind of what he is doing( except a hell lot more hard core!!!)

    As for my workout, I was doing full body 3Xwk. It consisted of all free weights, and mostly compound movements! Example:

    Legs: (2 work sets) squats, two sets of stiff legged dead lifts.

    chest: 2 sets Incline BB press, 2 sets flat DB press(or 2 sets of dips)

    Back: 2 sets of bent over BB rows, 2 sets lat pull downs( or body weight+ 25lbs. pull ups), 2 sets behind back shrugs(yeah I do these with my back wo)

    Shoulders: 2 sets military press, 2 sets side DB lateral raises.

    Armsbiceps) 2 sets BB curls or DB curls, 2 sets preacher curls. (triceps) 2 sets over head press, 2 sets rope pull downs.

    My reps varied, as I would change my rep range around depending on how I felt. But generally, I would make one of the workouts a heavy 6-8 rep range, the next workout would be lighter weight, 12-15 reps, and the next would be heavy weight, high 15 reps, by use of drop sets or rest pause method. Now(just my first week soing it) I am following Marc's Hig Reps to Hugeness routine to see how that goes.

    great, how long does it take to finish your workout, do you feel burnt out by the end

    one more thing you eat alot of chicken breast which i did as well at one point, do you do anything to change them up as far flavor or anything else. when i used to be up to the third chicken breast a day it just tasted like rubber lmao

  23. awesome transformation bro. what time do you typically get to the gym? and what do you eat pre/ PWO?

  24. WOW.....you look amazing...........
    RIP Ryan, :(
