View Full Version : Herc’s Pic update

07-26-2005, 12:13 PM
Well, I’ve been cutting for almost 6 weeks now after my monster bulk earlier in the year. I feel pretty good with where I am now, but want to loose some stubborn “back fat” before going back to bulking.
I started my bulk at 196 lbs, got all the way up to218 and today am at 205 with lower bf% than when I started, so I am counting it as a 10lb gain in LBM.

Here are the pics. Got inspired to do some record keeping after I squatted 405 for 6 for the first time last night!

Does anyone know why my pictures look stretched when accessed through the site? When I pull the same file up side by side on my computer the one from the web is distorted wider than the one in Photo editor.

Sorry it took so long to reply. Been a crazy week and weekend.

For all the nice comments, Thanks!

I'm 33 years old, been lifting for 5 years, correctly for 2.5.

I'm 6'2" tall and when this pic was taken 205 lbs. My lying sack of $hit Tanata tells me I'm between 12% and 16% BF depending on time of day, hydration, etc. The good news with that is after my bulk it was telling me 16% to 20%.

My training for cutting is fairly heavy 3 days a week with 3 days of cardio in between. Diet is semi-low carb high protein.

I would like to loose another 5 to 8 lbs of fat, which will hopefully get me to single digit BF%.

ElPietro- If these were shopped, I can guarantee I wouldn’t still have love handles and my arms would be HUGE :D or you would just see my head on Chase’s body. LOL

Dude with the exception of the orange hue of the entire pictures (making me wonder if Willy Wonka knows that one of his oompa loompas has escaped....) NAH I'm just kidding you man,you're looking good and throw away the B*tch tanita and get a cheap set of calipers,you'll feel a whole lot better and get a true indication of your real body fat%.
