Just got a new digital camera, so of course the first thing I did was take a picture of myself, and I was pretty shocked....The before picture is the only shirtless picture I could find from before my cut, so its not that great, but you get the idea.

As the alias suggests I had been cutting for a Triathlon, but my doctor seems to think this is a bad idea, since I can't run long distances (combination of torn cartilage from wrestling and extremely flat feet). Therefore, I need a new, stupid hard sport that I can compete in. Any suggestions? I'm thinking about rowing currently. MMA isn't really an option because I need my pretty face for my job :). I'm toying with the idea of natural body building as well.

Good job on the cut. You have done what I would like to do for the summer.

If you're looking for a tough sport, rowing can seriously kick your a$$. It is one of, if not the best, full-body cardio workout. I used to row when I was younger and would have kept up with it if not for a serious knee injury. If you can deal with the early mornings then I would say give it a shot. There's nothing better than flying silently across the water with your butt only 4" above it as the sun comes up.

How much weight did you lose and how tall are you?

Great progress man.

How was your training/diet during the cut?

Training and nutrition are very KISS.

Training, lift heavy 3 days/week, 4 sets of 5x5, HIIT 3 days/week

Nutrition I try to stick to the "7 habits of highly effective diets", I eat around 13 calories/lb, or 2500 cals....1.5 g protien/lb, 0.5 g fat/lb

By my estimations I'm around 11-12% bodyfat now (Based of an earlier measurment of BF and assuming LBM stayed the same, so I'm not sure how accurate that is)
