Hey! Sorry about no response for so long, I haven't stopped training or lifting but my buddy who I took pictures with was gone for the summer and I was pretty busy working, thus no time and help to take model photos/bodyfat percentages. Now that my semester's in full swing and my lifting partner is back, we've been making GREAT progress. Pics to follow soon.
My cut wasn't the best, but I'm happy I did it because I understand how my body both puts on and takes off fat so much better now - the knowledge I gained will be immensely useful next time I decide to cut. I only got a handful of non-serious photos of me at my lowest weight (around 192 lbs, roughly 5-6% bodyfat. I'm a heavy, heavy boned guy). I'll put those up with my next ones.
I started bulking again mid-August and am trying to do it as clean as possible - I've got goals to reach by the end of the year.
Hoping to weigh a good and heavy 215lbs by the end of December! Right now I'm at 198-200 lbs, so so far so good! I started a new routine too (Y3T by Neil Hill - very intense 9 week program you can find on bodybuilding.com), and the stress of it has already paid off.
In terms of competing, I plan on doing a quick cut to get my feet wet at a novice Men's Physique show at the Arnold next year.
I REALLY want to do an absolutely clean bulk after that into the summer and hopefully do an amateur show by the end of July/August.
