I have to take my shirt off this weekend
So, I'm going to Texas this weekend and I'm going to have to take my shirt off. I am not where I wanted to be by this time of year, but I am not that bad either, about 12% bf. Is there anything I can doin the next few days to maximize what I've got. maybe firm up just a little more.

Note your 12 rep max for front squats, chinups, push presses, and romanian deadlifts. Do this 3-4 times with 15 seconds rest in between exercises:
9 front squats
9 chin ups
9 push presses
Do this on relatively low glycogen stores (don't eat a lot of carbs beforehand). Don't eat for an hour afterwards (unless you feel like you're going to pass out). Try not to throw up on anyone during your workout, and be well hydrated.
Also, stick with lower carbs and sodium through to the weekend.

eliminate sodium from your diet, restrict your water intake, and possibly add a mild diuretic. not the healthiest approach as this can play havoc on your kidneys and mess up your electrolyte balance but it will make you appear sharper and leaner than normal. if you do something like this, make sure it is short term (2-4 days).
sigh, i always look for a reason to take my shirt off but i never find one gotta impress the ladies:chick: i find that many girls are shallow and i do significantly better with them when im dieted down.

Sorry, but I feel obligated to defend the ladies.
So I guess what I'm saying is if you must take your shirt off, don't worry what other people see or think. I mean, still follow a plan to reach a goal for your physique, but it's also important to just learn to be secure with yourself. Maybe just practice by taking your shirt off for no reason and walking around outside until you're comfortable.

Carb up and restrict sodium. That's all you can really do in a couple days, but it will make a big difference.
Seriously, don't worry about it. They like 'em big in Texas anyway, and at 12% you are probably leaner than the vast majority out there. As long as you don't have b!tch tits and a hairy back, most girls don't care.

my behavior has changed since then, i treat girls much better. i dont know why, but many girls i know prefer to date a-holes and dickheads.

like has been said restrict sodium now and water 24 hours out.
you could try a 48-72 hours high lean protein carb free diet and the morning you have to strip carb load quality carbs.
the time is short so this may not do much.
My best advise is shave and tan.
Tanned fat looks leaner than pale fat.
tanned muscle looks better than pale muscle.

and if you did lose significants amounts of bodyfat in 2 weeks, it was likely very detrimental to your muscle mass as well. that being said, if you wanna crash diet for 2 weeks, go for it. i doubt anyone will recommend it for the above reason.

dude just take your shirt off no matter where you are at. If its girls you are trying to impress your attitude and personality has way more impact than being at 9%bf as opposed to 12.

i know that you can't losse lots of body fat in two weeks i said that in my post but was just going to see waht everbody else does when it gets close to what you have been working for is close going to the beach,a show,class reuion etc.i work out year arround for the last 15 years i am saying what would be best to look your best for somthing coming up in two weeks or so lots of cardio only,lots of weights only .i have been cutting for about two or three months and am looking good but would like to al ways find ways tolook beter thinking about just doing lots of cardio for the two weeks no weights but am afraid of loosing muscle what do you guys think i am taking retain2 it is kepping my muscle hard.

for quick 2 day loss, what does everyone think about taking an AI and a NO product. the AI would reduce the water weight temporarily and the NO would give you a veiny look. 12% is lower than most. I would concentrate on cardio if looking lean is more important than looking big.
