    Had some fears of CHO before but honestly I do much better with a solid amount. If anything CHO + PRO are most important on cutting for me as I have to keep CHO pretty high or things get iffy.

    yeah i'm not trying to be too finite here, because there are many roads that lead to Rome
    but - the body is an incredibly adaptive organism..i will espouse that, given the proper timeframe to adapt body and the proper approach, carbs are NOT needed to build muscle, nor are they needed to "keep" muscle when cutting bodyfat
    it is just a more common approach, and yes easier, all things being equal

    your post brings to mind another thing bolt..i have long scratched my head at the designation CHO for carbohydrates
    yes i realize we are referring to chemical formulation structure of a carb (Carbon Hydrogen Oxygen), but we do not do this with either protein [NH3CHRCOOH] or fats [CH3(CH2)xCOOH] ....

    CHO always makes me think of cholesterol

    that's okay

    i'm rambling..
    but my essential point here being: the main function of carbs is energy, pure & simple; not musculature accrual
    the body can utilize other chemicals for fuel, than just carbs
    again, not poo-pooing the idea of carbs here, just playing devil's advocate and clarifying

    oh no man - i love to inspire, but i'm not trying to inspire anyone to hide out with me!
    there's enuff pics in my thread to hold you guys off for awhile

    funny thing is - i got three computers, but one is packed up, and the other is a brand new laptop i just bought, still in the box haven't set it up yet..i'll get around to it sooner or later, but for that reason i'm not in a hurry to have this one looked at
    (it is hardware issue btw guys, not virus or anything)

    non-pictorial update: weight ~197.5 this morning, more shredded..think i may have me a slight carb-up this day, some unplanned alterations
    (that means i am way ahead of schedule)
    training has been changed to a 3-day split, like this

    chest/shoulders/abs
    legs
    back/arms/abs
    off

    then run the split again, but vary the exercises/reps/weight

    repeat from beginning


    this is my long-standing preferred contest prep routine

    60mg of Epi Snags? I'm shocked you can tolerate that dose, its very very high. What brand is it?
    If my direct and cynical approach bothers you, just ignore it. I'm just saying what you need to hear ;).

    No not looking to compete for the most drastic changes. I am far from lean enough for a few lbs of fat loss to make a drastic improvement, as to where Snags was already pretty lean last pics I saw of him and a few lbs makes a world of difference.

    yeah i was just playing with ya..not in your best interest to try to shed fat quick right now, slow & steady as she goes man..i wanna see you hold as much muscle as possible while you get down there

    as for me - man i'm not trying to lose weight either! figure i'm doing pretty good, holding roughly where i'm at
    we'll see how these last few weeks treat me, but rough guesstimations i'm looking at - may have added a good 4-5lbs of actual muscle tissue (and possibly as much as 6-7) since last august

    Yah I am just shedding slowly, funny I am down to 201.5, which is 5.5 lbs in the last 4 weeks and by my calculations I am only about 900-1000 cals below maintenance per week. Not complaining though if anything I look bigger. I have the last adjustments we talked about pencilied in. Things are really looking clean, I think these content adjustments will enable me to keep cals steady for a couple more weeks.
