Going for Shredded!!!
OK guys, here is the deal. I have been cutting since November, with a few weeks "off" in December... (oh vacation...) I have now just reached single-digits on bodyfat, 9.95% hehe. Ok i know the calipers aren't that accurate, so I am somewhere 10-12%. I have decided rather than try to bulk again, to try for 6% bf.
I have never been that lean before, and word on the street is that the first time you try to get really lean is the hardest. I intend to find out! For those of you that have done it, is it significantly harder to do 10%-6% than say 15%-10% ?? Will I need to change my training much?
Now I HATE cardio. ya i do it some, but not nearly as much as I should. I have had great results cutting with great diet and weight training only, do you think I will be able to get to 6% without adding more cardio??
Current stats: measured on 4/4/12
height : 5'7"
chest : 6 mm
abdominal : 16 mm
thigh : 9 mm
tricep : 10 mm
subscapular : 12 mm
suprailic : 7 mm
midaxillary : 14 mm
fat LB : 18.32
bodyfat %: 9.95
lean LB: 165.7
by the way, I HATE midaxillary fat.... that **** in your armpit that squishes like someone stepping on an ice cream sandwich when your arm hangs by your side. hate hate hate!!! If i could take that crap and move it all right onto my abs, or onto my arms and lose all my vascularity, i still would!! it must die!!!!!!!
so you ripped guys out there, I know the basics, I have lost a lot of fat while maintaining my LBM, I am just a little concerned about the last 8-10 lbs of fat and what it will take to get rid of it

You're going to have to be a bit more forth coming with what you've been doing diet wise. Myself, and other will be happy to help "clean" things up to help you out.
Carb cycling may be you're best bet (what works best for me when you're that lean) but after you post your routine, people can help ya out. Good luck!Serious Nutrition Solutions Representative

Thanks I'm new to this site. I just use the app for my phone during my free time at work. I didn't know about the 50 posts thing for pics or I wouldn't have said anything. Sounds like they need something like that for the anabolic section
