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.

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

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?

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.

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.
