Well, I just finished taking final pictures this morning for a 6month recomp contest over at bb.com. First four months I bulked up, hit 200, and last 2 months I've cut down to around 179-181 @ 8-9% BF.

Here's the before/after pics:

you've made great progress! I'm sure the shaving, lighting and tan helped, though I'm taking away from your accomlpishment at all :)

Thanks man, overall, it's not the size I really want, so I'm happy the cutting is over.

Obviously the tanning/shaving helped lol I just wanted the biggest difference between january/now for the judge panel (Layne Norton is one of them). I'd be happy to place top 5.

Thanks man...had a hard time building the calves up and dropping the last little bit of water for the abs.

It was a spray tan that I bought in a bottle, I thought it came out pretty good.

Yeah man, deadlift is actually my favorite exercise..gonna work on taking some vids in the next few days. Bench eh...it's overhyped :p


nice progress, dgabe. looking good, bro.

Thanks bro, it was fun to cut down and look ripped for a little, but it's time to put on the slabs of mass.


looks good, very defined!

Thanks, was a pretty tedious diet, and I really only cut down for 7 weeks. So one day, when I cut down for a solid 16 weeks...we'll see what I can do ;)


Here's a few more photos that I didn't post yet.

LOL no it's not :confused: It's because my right arm was back further, pushing the trap down and to the back. It does appear that way though if you ignore the arms, and just look @ the traps

Hey Dgabe. I was wondering if you could tell me exactly where and what you bought as far as the spray tan goes. I was thinking about getting one myself but I've always been worried about then since I've heard nasty stories about people turning orange. But yours seemed to turn out great. You're looking much more defined and harder.

Actually I went to a local tanning salon and bought one of their spray tans. When I go home this weekend I can get the brand and product name for you. Turned out better than I hoped for! And thanks for the kind words man..was my first real contest prep, and I learned a lot. The bulk is going quite succesful and I'm back up to 195ish already...got about 30 more lbs to go and then we'll see what I do from there :D

Ha, thanks ! I'm looking to really throw on some mass so that when I cut down I don't end up so light!!
