    Some update photos

    Haven't posted photos in this section in a while...so some updates. Just finished my second bottle of Results. I went from 172-186ish. For full disclosure, I was 187 in 2005 when I started cutting for my show. Since then I had been sitting around mid-170's for the most part. Pulled some lower back muscles about a year ago deadlifting, and it keeps flaring up, so I haven't concentrated on deads or squats in about a year. Starting the TNT diet for the summer. Then back to bulking in the fall.

    You look great bro. I messed up my glute/ham doing deads and I havent been able to do them for atleast 6 months, and I've had to do very light squats as well. I know how you feel. Whats the TNT diet?

    Mike: Thanks. It's actually a PUMA bag, and a piece of crap.

    Kev: Thanks man.

    GF: Thanks! Too kind as always.

    Jay: I miss deads and squats, but just trying to get 100% TNT diet is basically low carb with refeeds.

    RBB and Jake: I know there are a lot on the board that want me to keep bulking. I'm not looking to cut. I really just want to maintain for the next few months, and then go back to bulking in the fall.

    Lookin' good bud... Jealous of the arms and shoulders as always. I like your idea of maintaining for a bit and continuing with the bulk in a few months... Gives you a bit of time to pack on more LBM to make you more comfortable with blowing up over the fall. Pretty much what I'm doing this summer, also.

    You look great. I say keep bulking.


    I still don't see how you have a 36in waist. I'm at about 38 or so, and I'm a whale compared to you.

    Look great, slow tight bulk until 195-205 going to look huge and still be lean.
    Remember, to get big, you have to get strong. The two are interconnected. Lift heavy, work hard, and size will come. Like night follows day. It works. Arnold

    OR, you could recomp for 3-4 weeks dropping bodyfat and gaining about 1lb LBM, then once bodyfat is where you want it, go back to bulking..

    BoB: Thanks man. I'll trade everything for your bench.

    Killswitch and Mik: thanks guys.

    RBB and Jake: that is the concept behind the TNT diet. Low carbs during the week, and refeeds on the weekend.

    Bill: I'll get there next fall/winter. Content where I am for now.

    BJ: Just put the tape measure on it, and it's currently 35.5 It's swollen from eating. I know the big guys will tell me to suck it up.

    Looking great bro.

    Ederon: thanks dude. You getting back on stage anytime soon?

    Jordan: thanks. always been the one thing I had going for me.

    Nosaj: thanks man.

    I'll probably try to keep this as a little picture journal while I try this TNT diet. Maybe I'll update it every 4 weeks or so as I start to progress. So far, so good. Weight has remained exactly constant in the the last 2 weeks, but seemed a bit leaned out.

    Didn't really post a leg shot, so here.

    Ryuage wannabe! :P Looking good, you squat pretty heavy if I remember correctly. Do you squat in hypertrophy range out of curiosity or more for strength?

    Nosaj: Thanks dude. I actually have really done squats or deads in about a year. Nagging back injury from deads. Mainly just light high rep leg presses, extensions, and curls.

    Coke: thanks man. I think them being lean is a big deceiving. I can promise they are smaller than they look.

    Week 4 updates:
    Just finish week 4 of the TNT diet plan E. Scale had dropped a few lbs as of Friday, but I was at the end of a 5 day low carb run. For the most part the scale has remained steady. Fat seems to be slowly dropping, muscle mass seems to be preserved. Strength has been steady. These were taken last night after a bit of refeeding, also a couple hours of tanning.
