Well i got about 8 weeks to get into comp shape. Im gonna enter a contest on july 10. I hope to cut about 15-20 more lbs for the show which would put me at about 145. Heres my current pics. Yall can laugh at my white ass legs
the last couple. I know i need to get a lot leaner. Once the cut is over im going to focus on traps and legs.
It doesnt look like you have 20lbs of fat on you man, maybe 10-12(?) and you will be really cut. I dont know anything about competing though so you may be right. You look pretty lean though...

btw a 3 point caliper test had me at 8.6..but ive heard there usually low by up
to 3 %????
If you can see you abs you have less fat. Very lean. Not competition lean, but on the right track. Look very good Nic. Whatever you are doing, keep at it.
thanks bro..i just started a low calorie diet for my comp..how many % away do you guess i am..in lbs??
Dont know what you`re doing or how you do it, but keep it up. You`re certainly on the right track. Keep posting pics on your improvement and let us know how it went at the comp.

Nic, I don't trust any of the bodyfat percentage testing methods that would be available to you. Forget about that. You should also forget about losing a certain number of pounds. Go by what you see in the mirror and your waist measurement. If you measure your waist first thing when you roll out of bed in the morning, it can be used as an excellent guage of your fat loss (smaller waist = less fat).
You are quite lean now and losing 20 lbs on your frame would involve the loss of a lot of muscle.
I think you should lean up a bit more, but be careful to lose that fat slowly and to minimize your loss of muscle.
I assume you will be doing a teen show? If so, you are not far from contest condition. You have to understand that you cannot look like the guys in the magazines without taking drugs (varying from steroids, to growth hormone, to thyroid medication, to diuretics), nor should you want to as they are very unhealthy at the point they get onstage.

You're looking excellent, bro. You're definitely on your way to looking ripped and big for the contest.

ROFL, oh man - I usually wait until I'm on the freeway to do that. What an idiot! -teufy doing what he does best.
You aren't strong enough or pretty enough to train in the evenings with us...better stick to noon workouts with the rest of the geriatrics. - pup

Getting lean... but if you lost 20 lbs there'd be nothing left of you. After this show, I'd certainly consider bulking for a LONG time to get some mass.
Big? Not really. I'm 5'7" 196 lbs.
Strong? Like a bull!
Bodyfat currently at : dropping
Bench - 440 (raw)
Squat - 600 (belt & wraps)

It’s a bird… It’s a plane… nope, it’s me soarin’ past everybody.
