Looking for my 6 pack......
Well I have been working out now for 3 years. I have bulked from 165 up to 218 over the last few years. Well I have never in my life had a 6 pack and that is my new goal. I am seriously considering a Test E cycle this winter and would like to start out as lean as possible. In March of this year I was over 215 post Havoc cycle. Currently down to 195 with increased cardio and playing with carbs a bit. So now the plan is CKD and ECA to help me find that 6 pack. I really dont wanna get below 190, but I guess we will see what happens. Pics to follow...Any advice and any criticism is welcome and appreciated...

something that has been getting me closer to that is doing a combination of DC training, along with doing carb + calorie cycling. so following DC training which is EOD, on workout days i'm taking in around 3000-3500 cals probably around 45 pro/45 carb/10 fat with no carbs after 5pm, then on off days taking in around 2000 cals as more like 40 pro/20 carb/30 fat, and try to have no "primary" carb food sources after 12pm.

On duty at the fire house again today and too busy with work stuff to get in the weight room. Off the next few days to hit the gym hard.
Well I end of day 2 and I just Ketosticked my piss and I am at 15mg/dl....Atleast I know I am starting to enter ketosis
seeing keto sticks or not isn't much guarantee of being in ketosis. if you are in ketosis but burning all the ketones created then very little will be going out in urine. so if it shows any at all you are probably good.
on a keto bulk they are valuable
i doubt your in ketosis, it takes anywhere from 7-14 days to fully be in, but your on the right track, just cut down those carbs, I make my macros 50/20/30...

Diet---Did not track macros due to computer issues,,,but it was in the norm of around 1500 cal...
you have a good physique, and obviously some good motivation. what's your detailed diet like? cardio routine? judging from your physique you are very close to getting what you strive for, and I believe it's just a slight adjustment of what you are doing that can get you there.
i have a thread in the pics forum where I revamped my physique in 2-3 months, and I was a lot farther off than you are in these pics.
i didn't need any prohormones or the potentially dangerous EC stack so maybe the same can be said for you since you are close.
I am not crazy about restricting calories or being hungry. I gained a considerable amount of weight around my midsection because I quit going to the gym for about 1 year. Even though I have arms, chest, shoulders that many crave for my midsection was starting to look like ****! So I have focused on running the treadmill burning 500+ calories per session 5 days a week. My upper & middle abs are starting th show again. I may be wrong but I am hoping this type of cardio will get me back my six pack in a way that is sustainable & healthier rather than manipulating my diet or starving myself. A trainer nce told me our metabolism is like pushing a car....once we get it moving it's easy to keep it going.
Workout---Another day at the firehouse that screwed my schedule all up. We spent all day out training, ofcourse it was 90 degrees with high humidity so I sweated my arse off all day. After that was call after call and now its 2230,,so no routine today....
