Ok some details:
-About a week and a half ago I started into a cut to help rid me of my flabby mid section. I started around 186, and am around 183 right now.
-I have been consistently working out my chest, lifting heavy, to little avail. I do incline/flat bench, dumbbell flys, and pushups and am seeing very little progress.
-About 3 weeks ago I finally started doing squats. I don't know how I lifted without them.
-My poses suck...meh
-I am fairly pleased with the progress on my shoulders but the lighting hardly shows it...thus the last picture.

Comments, questions welcome! If you would like to view my other progress pics through January, just search my name in members pics.

Thanks
Tyler

You haven't been doing squats?

Your legs must have crazy potential, they already look fantastic. Keep at it man, I'm in the same boat chest-wise so I feel your pain. But your arms and shoulders also look great and your back looks good.

about the chest, what are you benching for reps?

I start with a warmup of 135 at 10 reps, then i move to 185 at 5 reps, 205 at 5 reps, and 210 at 5 reps.

Thanks for the comments.

not bad, but I would go all the way heavy for all the sets. like maybe 210 for 8,7,6,5.

3 months ago I was doing 135 x 8,6,5,4. using this technique I am now at 255 x 8,6,5,4 and chest development is pretty nice. Not as good as tri dev but not bad either.

i find it a little hard to believe your reps have gone up 120 pounds in 3 months unless you werent trying before.

believe what you will or believe what you wont but my reps went up that much and keep going up. when I started, I could not push 135 for 3 reps on my fourth set and that was three months ago.

I attribute it to three things

1. dextrose
2. l-glutamine
3. my notebook -for keeping track of my exercises and making me push myself to always improve- either in weight, or in reps.

overall looking good, but one critique is that your arms (which look great) are too overdeveloped compared to the rest of your body, work on chest and back development as well as leg mass.

With that kind of vascularity in your arms it's weird (to me) that your midsection is kinda flabby. Either way, it doesn't look like it would take you long to get ripped. Good luck :thumbup:

Well I started all my healthy living lifestyle last June (05), in which i weighed a very soft 240lbs (look in my Jan progress pics thread for an old pic), so I have been fighting against my old flab for quite some time. If I hold the skin on my stomach down, I can see some BADASS strong looking abdominals. I can't wait to get rid of the extra flab/skin :). Thats most of the reason why I am cutting right now. Once those abs come in strong, its back to bulking!

My diet consists of at least 200 grams of protein in a day, but besides that its pretty random. Lots of fruits and veggies, plenty of meat, occasional cappuccino (im addicted) etc...

I do abs on legs days and generally do the crunch machine for three sets of 20 with 40lbs resistance, then I also usually do the decline bench holding a 45 lb weight at three sets of 10.
