Just to get a little leaner for the summer, but primarily to have a leaner base to build from when I start putting the weight on again.

I haven't made a significant drop in cals this time, not like back in February when I dropped like 20 lbs over 8 weeks.



OK. I am doing the same now but that is just so I stay in a certain range of body fat before I start dropping and going to training twice a day again.

I would limit "dropping calories" to just cleaning up carb intake for now. That is all I am doing.

Is that the one with the "run for the bus" sprint work and the "spend 2 hours waiting for cab service" active rest...and the "don't know how I'm gonna keep my lights on" fatigue and the "they just repoed my car" stress work?


I've tried that actually.

Question.

From that front pic I posted, what would you guys say I need to improve on the most. Be honest, I can take it lol!

Like for instance, abs. I know they're not out all out yet. But should I try to make them bigger? I don't really train them much directly. Lots of heavy deads, presses, bench, squats, etc.

It's hard to judge your biggest weaknesses from that one pic. Post all the mandatory poses so the experienced BBers can pick apart your physique.

How did the first week go? How are you tracking your weight? Daily? Weekly?

This really does make it a lot easier to assess a physique.

I wouldn't bother tbh, your numbers are so high on your squats, deads etc that you'll have a fairly solid set of abs already
