Hman's cutting up!

Looking good man.. In for this one. The strength loss, is depressing..lol
Same here, man. There is just something satisfying about being lean over being big. Now, if I could be 250lbs at 10-12% bf, I'd probably take it, but I don't think my genetics would allow me to get even close to that. I'll settle for 180lbs at 6-7% bf.

210 @ 10% would be nice too.

You're actually a lot more patient then I am. I inherently take the marathoners approach when trying to add muscle, but when it comes to shedding fat, I'm very ADD. I drop too quickly and I do pay the price, but my mind goes to a different place when I'm in a genuine cut mode. I become over-concerned with the fat loss and under-concerned about the muscle loss as a result of a fast acting cut.
I have the opposite problem, its easy for me to maintain 210-215lbs, relatively lean and damn near impossible for me to hold 190lbs, respectfully lean, and I prefer being in the 190's.
Keep it up Hman!
I agree with IC's earlier comment, your shoulders & bi's are looking stacked.

I think the no-carb thing is really messing with you. It makes you look like crap and kills muscle tone. I'm on the TKD thing right now and even with that I look a little flat. How's your strength?
Man, do everything you can to not lose muscle. I've cut down before drug-free with little-to-no muscle loss, so I plan on doing it again. You were with me for that ride.
I think often times people on a cut hit the weights way too hard. I think to preserve your muscle you need to take it a little easier in the gym. That's why I always do full-body a few times a week and only an exercise or two for each muscle group. Less hypertrophy and less recovery time. the less eenergy expenditure the better.

Think about it...
You're trying to lose weight, not gain it, so don't train like you're trying to pack on muscle. You're trying to KEEP your strength, not increase it (although it often happens in the process ).

~12-15lbs, maybe. That's basing off of 7%.
My diet last time I got real diced was basically what I'm doing right now, but not as restrictive. I had carbs in the morning regardless of if it was a workout day or not; however, I am pretty certain overall calories were lower than they are for me now.

Good day fellow am'ers! I am about to get to the gym and hit chest and tri's. I will be doing lower reps and higher weight to hold onto my strength but will keep the volume down a bit.Cardio after is a must and will be doing some later today as well since i didn't get mine in this morning. I have a good feeling about my progress this week.

I've yet to use suppress-c .
Lean Xtreme was my favorite. I loved the leanX DCP stack.

Alright guys I have a problem. I do this every time I try to get really diced. My weight keeps dropping but I don't seem to be much leaner in my ab love handle area. Thats were I hold the majority of my fat I have dropped 10lbs(+-2lbs) and it seems that that amount of weight dropped should have me looking much leaner than i am. I am not sure what to do. Am I losing muscle? Or do I just have a lot more fat to lose than i thought? I am sick of this, I can't seem to get this last section off. waist seems to be sitting around the same size but a little smaller. What should i do guys?
