The first pic is me 2 months ago at the height of my bulk at 215lb. The second is me now at ~187lb. I'm 5'9". Yes, I know I am white, but give me a break... I'm in Indiana. :p
I think my cut is going well so far.

That is an awesome job! It's funny how dropping a little fat can actually make you look bigger in some cases. Shoulders, obliques, taper...everything looks great mang. Good job.

GF: Thanks, hot stuff.

Rene: Yeah, dropping fat definitely makes you look bigger... it's all about the definition. ;)

Brian: Thanks.

Mase: Thanks. I've definitely been hardcore with diet and training.

B-R: What's up, bud? Couldn't take a pic of my back since no one was aroudn to do it, lol. Thanks for the kind words.

Skinny: For the first 4 weeks I just reduced calories by a lot. For the past 2 weeks I've been doing carb cycling.

Speed: Thanks.

Looking great, Beast! Are you using anything during the cut (clen, ec, DNP :D )?

Beast

coke: PM me whenever you want.

Wocky: Thanks a lot, bro!

Jeff: Thanks, man. Ugh, I just thought of how much 28 pounds was, lol.

Jason: Thanks. I've been using clen for 3 weeks now, although really it should only be used when you're almost to your goal. I just had a lot of it so I started it early... it's good stuff.

That's only halfway?

Competing?

(looking very, very good, btw.)

looking great Beast congrats! how has your strength been affected by your dieting?energy levels? Just asking because i've never done a full on cut...

Beast
02-19-2005, 02:01 PM
500: Thanks.

bill: Thanks, but I know I have lost muscle.

Org: Yeah, I want to be leaner. No competing for me. :)

SirTest: Strength is at about half it was when I was bulked up... It sucks, but it's worth it since I don't care for strength anyway. Energy is actually really high. For some reason I don't need as much sleep as I used to. I'm glad - and surprised - I haven't burned out at all, especially since I work out twice per day, every day.

Beast, looking VERY lean. That's awesome. Natty cut?

Beast
02-19-2005, 04:01 PM
Hey Justin, good to see you around. 100% natty cut, besides the clen. Although after spring break that will change. :evillaugh

Looking very good bro, especially for a natty cut, props to you on that. But lets see the wheels.

Beast
02-20-2005, 09:03 AM
cp: Thanks a lot, bro.

Cocoa: Yeah, I know... I'm just too ****ing lazy to do it, lol.

Gabe: Thanks. I'm just looking for defined abs in any type of lighting, so probably 7% or so.

tt: Thanks, big man.

smalls: Couldn't get a decent pic of the wheels in that mirror, but I promise they aren't twigs. ;)

With your size I would imagine your legs are anything but twigs. But eventually we must see the wheels, lol. Keep up the good work bro, seriously impressive.

I was thinking the same thing... Beast, you look like you're 210+. :cool:

awesome job man, i can't wait to the cut phase myself... hope i get just as good results...

Beast
02-20-2005, 06:54 PM
Manveet: Thanks a lot. Yeah, less bodyfat makes one look way better!

no regrets: Thanks.

smalls: One day, man. I actually had to stop squatting during my last bulk because they were getting too large... made my upper body look small. :(

Jason: I wish I were 210, ripped! Thanks.

LOL.

Well, when I sat down on the toilet I had to spread my legs out kinda far, otherwise I'd pee some place other than in the toilet.

Looking much leaner and it's already been said BETTER. Awesome work! What BF% are you now and what are you aiming for?

Beast
02-23-2005, 10:41 AM
Thanks, muscle chic.

Wikkie: I never use calipers to guage my bodyfat, although I probably should. I'm guessing I'm at 12% or so. I would just like to get down to the "defined abs" level, whatever bodyfat percentage that might be for me.

Looking good there. Nice delts, traps and taper. You look good lean.

Beast
02-24-2005, 09:16 AM
Astro: I have no idea. I'll probably try to just stay lean for a long time... I'm not sure if I'll be able to go hardcore anymore, especially since I'll be going to medical school in July.

Chase: Thanks, I think so, too.

LOL.

Sitting down to pee is obviously part of your problem

Stand up to pee! Be a man! Sprinkle a little around the bowl to mark your territory.




Oh and your progress pics look great. Definitely looking sharp as you get leaner. Careful you don't lose too much muscle mass in pursuit of the 6-pack. That's a mistake I've made in the past.

LOL well I thought saying "pee" would be better than "taking a dump." What man sits down just to pee? :p

Thanks for the compliment, and I can very easily see how one could lose a lot of muscle in pursuit of the abs. I'm trying to be careful, but I just can't get my mind off of that goal right now.
