  1. Supposed to do legs today, but I can't even think about that right now. My summer job(landscaping, mowing) is killing me and i hate it. Can't wait for school to start back up. I will resume workouts tomorrow.

  6. 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.
    Irish, you seem to have some solid genetics man. How hard is it for you to stay that lean? I just want to be 210 @ 10% or so.

    I am liking it so far I think it is helping with the trouble spots like stomach and lovehandles!

    It's not REAL hard for me to stay lean, and I seem to thrive on a cut as I make real good, quick progress; however, the trade off is it's more difficult for me to try to add LBM without putting on a decent amount of fat. I've found that the "slow and steady" approach works best for me.

    210 @ 10% would be nice too.

    I feel the same way. I feel like the human body (or at least for most people) has very little problem getting big. However, it does have a problem with getting big and staying lean. Therefore, I also like the slow and steady approach to bulking.

    Low & slow, like cooking ribs.

    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 am the same exact way. I can diet and after 12 weeks be down only about 15lbs bc I've kept my LBM but bulking is a different story. I'm too impatient about adding mass bc it SHOULD be easier! You usually hear people bitch about not being able to lose weight,lol.

    For me to stay under 10% for a long time, id likely need to be eating 1300cals, and doing 5hrs of cardio a week(maybe more)

    Man that sucks hard. I could stay at about 8% taking in 2k cals/day and doing no cardio. Gaining LBM is real hard for me, though. It comes and goes. 170-175lbs seems to be the sweet spot for me; meaning I can hold that weight and be pretty lean relatively easily. Anything above that is hard for me to hold on to.

    Same once I get lean I can eat alot and stay that way, but to stay super lean cardio is neede at least 3x a week.

    NOW THAT'S THINKING WITH YOUR DIPSTICK JIMMY!!!!!

  19. Ok well the weight keeps dropping. I have lost about 10 lbs since the beginning but it seems that it can't all be fat. I hate losing muscle or the thought of it. what is everyones out look on this. I have lost bodyfat but but it seems that if i had lost 10lbs of fat i woul be looking alot leaner than i am. What to do?

  20. 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.

  21. 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 ).

    Dude strength is dropping on some workouts but not hardly on others. I think that the carbs just gives me not enough energy. It seems that everytime i cut strength comes back quickly once i introduce carbs back in. I am just wondering if i get down to the real leaness that i want I might lose some serious size. What was your diet last time you got really shredded? Check out my pics again irish and give me your idea on how many pounds you think I would need to lose to get down to 7-8%? (doesn't have to be spot on but just a ballpark idea)

  23. ~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.

    What were the amount of carbs in the morning? also was that your only carbs in the day? postworkout? I might try this tkd diet but we will se.

    I think it was around 60-80g, and yes, those were my only carbs during the day.

    I got real lean again around this past Christmas, but I still couldn't lose that bottom layer of fat around my lower abdomen. I hope to rid myself of that on this cut.
