Yeah, I want to be lean for November. I dont think 5% is going to happen, but thats my goal. Starting to up reps, cardio, and lean the diet a little more.
I think with three weeks to cut and 5 days to prep, I can change my body. The down fall is being on PCT. I dont want to cut carbs for the next three weeks because I have felt really strong in the gym, coming from lower carbs, I think it has helped to add a little more in. I am still on the low side averaging around 125-150. Last week out I was going to cut carbs to 50g a day for MON-Thurs, Friday Carb Load with 50g carbs per meal for 5 meals, and continue high water till 9pm as you stated.
Workout and Cardio are def going to play a role now. I have been just working to maintain for the last several weeks, not even thinking of competeing till next year.

Don't think like you won't reach the 5%, just tell yourself you will.

Very good to hear --- and honestly DermaTherm is perfect for a guy like you who is ALREADY LEAN!
Keep applying to the stubborn areas and the good news is --- you should technically be
holding water in the areas applied due to yohimbine's affect on aldosterone.
Once you cease its usage you will clear any water and see those areas lean and dry!
I try to get in good enough shape that EVEN while using topical yohimbine I still look dry

Started cardio 45 min ED on stair stepper. I was on fire Sunday after cardio. Also hitting 2 gals a day of water right now.
On work days, I hit abs for 10 min as soon as I wake up before getting ready for work. Off days I will still start with fasted cardio, abs, cales.

Yesterday went well, got off work, applied DermaTherm, Changed and hit the gym. Did back, rib cage, abs, obliques, and cardio.
My workout felt weak, I was disapointed with my back workout,
Started with Bent over BB rows, 3sets of 12 then Reverse grip 3 sets of 12 light weight 155lbs.
Then supersetted Lat pull downs and Row Pull downs on HammerStrength 3 sets each 10-12 reps
Next I tripple setted, Staight leg deads, Hyperextensions, and pullovers for the rib cage.
4 sets Deads 10 reps, Hypers 10 reps, Pullovers 12-15 reps
Then did some T bar rows with obliques
then abs and cardio.
I did 25 minute stair stepper and 20 minutes on the stationairy bike. back to back. Goal was 45 stair stepper but I was tired after work.
I wore a sweater while doing cardio, my midsection was hotter then ever. It was a very good burn.

I will train ABS YEAR AROUND NOW.
I used to only train them while dieting -- simply because I had them built from heavy lifting...
Well -- I had someone preach to me that abs always need attention all year for lower back support and lifting heavier.
Also -- who doesnt want deeply etched bricks? Mine were always good when lean, but I want them great.

Every other day...
Maybe I "appear' leaner than I am from more deeply developed abs...
Who knows -- but they look nice for my off-season
A good BB'r should NEVER be ashamed or insecure to peel off his shirt anytime of year.

That's seems to be a smart approach abs one day and calves another.
When should I cut out the DermaTherm pre show. A week out?

Well I changed my diet a bit, hitting very low cals, but still getting a good amount of protein. The 45 min. of cardio on the stair stepper is pretty difficult. But the hardest part is keeping the heart rate manageable. I am trying to stay around 130 bpm but it keeps shooting up to 140+.
I am sitting at 213lbs still but hopefully I will be down a bit by monday. Hitting about 2 gals of water a day.
Yesterday, I had a great chest workout. I was very surprised with what I benched. My partner was maxing so when he started with 315 lbs I did it first and was surprised I hit it 3 times easily. Especialy with the caloric deficiency and being on pct. I was actually surprised with the whole workout. I was pretty stong and had good endurance. I felt energized which is nice.

10 days left.
Cardio in the am , evening workout followed by cardio.
Plan on dropping at least 3 -4 lbs before water. I hope to tighten up a bit more before dropping water. Want to be 206-207lbs before I start to drop water.

Seems like you got yourself pretty in line for some impressive results. Nice work.
10-25-2012, 02:40 PM
I hope so!
Been practicing posing a lot, want to have it down perfect. Never actually realized the work it takes to get it perfect!
