As you can tell in that last one, my chest/ love handles are pretty flabby and that is something I want to fix immediately. I was not on a strict enough diet for about 5 months. I didn't eat any fast food, but I also did not keep good enough track of my cals/ macros.

I'm pretty much only satisfied in my quads. I'll try to get some back pics up, but it's nothing special. My right arm looks so ****ty compared to my left. My left side is stronger but yet I am right handed. Weird.

Long Term Goals:
190 pounds, ~10% BF.

Starting /Current lifting stats
BP- 95/ 245
SQ- 105/ 275
DL- 135/ 300

Looking for comments/ critique. Please be brutal. I need a good kick in the ass.

Took me a little over 4 months to cut down to 165 but i didnt know anything about macros. I went on a drastic cut. Been "bulking" for 6 months now and hate how it turned out. Maybe if i cut my muscle will actually look like muscle and not tons of fat.

Keep up the good work man, I'd suggest a cut too. You look good so far though. I'm pretty much in the same boat as you though, kinda. I previously cut to about 173lbs which was way too skinny and now I'm at 218 (last week) trying to get down a bit.

are you just guessing your body fat?

Id suggest a cut by way of carb/calorie cycling.

Yes.

I started my cut last week, and I dropped 4 pounds already (I know it's mostly water weight). I cut the calories down to 2000, and I eat 200+ grams of protein, 100 fats, the rest carbs. I do HIIT 3-4 times a week, and do a version of BGB modified for a cut. So far so good.

I'd try a carb cycling diet for a while. Something like UD 2.0 or the Velocity Diet. You definitely need to lose some of that fat. There is no reason you can't weight 205 at a lower BF %. The key is to fix your diet (lower carbs and get protein from quality sources) and continue to lift HEAVY. There is no reason that at your size you couldn't get up to a 350 squat, 275 bench, and 405 deadlift fairly quickly (like within a few months) with the right program. If you hit those numbers I guarantee you'll look a lot different, too.

Could you help me set up a great cycle please?

Right. Stay with it for awhile. Closely monitor your nutrition and workouts and review them week by week to make adjustments. Lift hard and heavy and you will start to see changes.
