    bullshit! - fk the calipers - pop into a health equipment store and jump on one of those bf scales.

    They're not super accurate, but I bet you it will give you a better idea.

    My lowest was 12% - and you're at least equal to that if not a little lower

    Friday of week 14...


    I took a couple of photos of my legs at the gym last night. I also got on the electronic scales and they gave me a body fat reading of 11%. What friendly scales! I hadn't put any legs shots up so these are a couple of shots to show you that I do have a set, they just need some mass packed on them!

    Seems to be pretty common that one leg is visibly larger than the other, for me its my left that is larger and for you the right. Judging by the pics, i dont think its drastic but since ive noticed that observation its rare to see legs that same size.

    Yeah maybe. It could just be the way I'm standing/leaning when trying to take the picture. I gave up in the end. I'll get someone else to do it for me in the next couple of weeks. Overall my fat loss seems to have stalled a bit. I'm weighing 95-96kg at the moment.

    Have you ever done a detox? Somtimes free radicals and toxins prevent further fat loss as fat acts as a buffer to keep poisons away from vital organs. Just like how you pack news paper with your dishes. lol. Worth a look.

    I've never considered it. I'll have a search around and see what information I can find on the topic. Thanks

    you'll be surprised how much these skills stick with you. its imporrtant to practice some. like me with boxing I used to do it when i was 19-20. and last year I joined a boxing gym and still had it.

    also wrestled as a kid and had that as well(mma, ufc fighters) best way to test it out is like when you take a break from weight lifting or just for cardio join a mma place. Youll be surprised how much muscle memory on the skills is still there even though you havent touched it in years.

    good shape to the legs

    If you've been drinking your vege juices then you kinda already have.

    Start pounding away green tea with lemon juice and a bit of raw ginger, and if you're really keen start swallowing whole garlic cloves 3x a day

    The scales and I agree on your BF - well-fkn-done mate.

    The beginning of week 15...


    Body weight tonight was 93kg. So far, 11-12kg lost. I attempted to take my own pictures again, but was lucky enough to have someone come and train late just as I was leaving. I left him in the photo because the mirror shows my back. I think it's probably my strongest body part. I'd say my arms are the weakest. They really need to pick up some size if I'm going to get anywhere with bodybuilding. I can't wait to go on a big bulker. I'm pretty sure it will start in March sometime. That allows March, April, May and in to a bit of June to bulk. Then June through to October to cut for the competition. With this long to cut it also allows time for adjustments etc. It will be a competition diet this time though, which probably won't be as lenient or enjoyable. The price of beauty. So anyway, there were a few big boys at the gym tonight who estimated my body fat to be around the 11-12% range. I've NEVER been this low before and I can't wait to see <10%. I've still got a little bit of belly at the bottom so I'm going to play around with my diet a little this week and cut out sodium altogether. I'm also going to up my fats a little and add some vegetables that are natural diuretics. I'll also be taking some caffeine pills and drinking green tea. This will hopefully help get rid of some water I may be holding and strip a bit more fat. It may do nothing, but it's my body and I can experiment with it if I want to

    I can clearly see the improvement cub! Starting to look lean.
    Now here's a question I've been meaning to ask you. How much has your strength fallen off since this cut?

    It definitely has dropped a bit, but not too much. I've noticed that I can still push the weight I did before, it's just that my rep range is much less now. So, I usually start heavy and then drop the weight after a couple of sets so that I can keep my volume nice and high.

    HAHA! Thanks brother! It's funny you say that, when people speak to me in the gym they always say "didn't you used to be a powerlifter?" The bench is my passion, but I want to step on stage.

    That is awesome progress Cub! Lookin so much healthier. Like you said you are lacking a bit in the arms department compared to the rest of you - when you were training for powerlifting did you ever train bi's/tri's individually or was it always compound movements etc.

    We only ever did hammer curls and extensions. No real direct work for mass. I'm going to take you up on that dare.

    awesome progress cub

    I have it on good advice: drink your green tea with a slice of lemon and a little fresh ginger - and drink a lot of it.

    I've dropped 3.4kg since NY so far on that tapered carbs/vege juice diet

    I felt very skinny today. But, I MUST drop this last bit of mud before I begin my bulk. The leaner I am when I start bulking, the leaner I will stay during that period. The way it's looking now, March 1st will be day one of my bulking phase. I'm going to Thailand at the start of next month to chill out for a couple of weeks. I'm pretty sure a diet of chicken and vegetables should be easy to adhere to over there. Plus with the sun and heat, it could be a good combination.

    You missed the part about buckets of vodka redbull and pints of cocktails.

    The food is good and cheap though. Regardless of how hot the "ladies" are always put them through a grab test....you never know...

    HAHA! Nice one, TomCat.

    I got my skin folds done again last night. Three weeks ago they totaled 57mm. This time they totaled 37mm! So I've shed a considerable amount since last time, even if it doesn't feel like I have. Maybe I'm just not noticing it. The same person did the test for me so it was accurate.

    I'm going to keep cutting until the end of Feb. Then, beginning March 1st, I start my bulk. It will be a lean bulk though. So basically just the same food I'm eating now, just more of it and more in the carb department.
