    We will wait...
    Because I am no longer 8% BF. I am bulking and trying to acquire information for my next cut.

    Yeah , its a continuing learning, by posing over and over and seeing what looks best on you and the help of an outside eye.

    Very understandable, that's the best way to add muscle from year to year. Got to gain some body-fat make muscle gains. After a certain point, additional fat doesnt help muscle, and actually bad for it, causing insulin sensitive to decline, and its much more difficult to get it off .

    Do you hold all your fat on your stomach? So you could be at 8% overall BF, but have less body fat everywhere else and more on your stomach?

    Donít get me wrong, I wasnít saying your posing was bad by any stretch, just that it wasnít geared towards showing maximal ab separation.

    In my opinion I do, yes. For example: you can see the separation of the different vastusí of the quads (so good leg definition), smaller calves (need work) but can see veins throughout and good definition, decent bicep/tricep separation and definition (can see bicep insertions) veins extending from forearm to shoulder, upper chest has quite a few veins (hexagon-shaped like Orgo Chem), lower chest holds some fat, stomach holds some fat, and lower back has the trademark ďChristmas treeĒ.

    I realize that sounds very conceited, but is that helpful at all?

    At 8% BF, you should have great separation and definition EVERYWHERE. And depending on your size you should see some decent ďstriationsĒ on your delts/chest/quads as well.

    And I canít see any of your claims, as you havenít posted any pics lol.

    Thanks you too! I had to actually cut out cardio for a few months because I could not gain any weight. Ready for the summer shred again so I can get tan. Hoping i can improve even further on this next cut. How? Iím not so sure. Thatís the best Iíve ever looked. But I was miserable because of how hungry I was all the time. I kept that ripped look for about 6 months before starting a very lean bulk

    My waistline in those first two photos was a staggering 24 1//2 inches. At that point veins were rippling out of my abs. Honestly my parents thought I was too thin and worried about my health to a degree.

    Your conditioning was as solid as one could reasonably want. So Iíd say aim for similar leanness with more mass? More size on your chest at that level of leanness would really pop.

  16. 24 1/2, WOW! Thatís crazy!

  17. Dont have enough muscle mass for sure.. I'm 5'9 and bulked up to 215 and cut down and my abs begin to pop around 180lbs, shredded at 170~175
