    Dude you have been cutting. Looking very good mate! You lat spread is very good. Wide. How much more are you looking to cut? You got me by 11 pounds right now.

    Nice job mate!
    peace-

    that is some sensational progress. HUGE difference. If you hadn't said you were natural I would have guessed you were on the juice. well done.

    Great progress d. I agree with Craig, you've got a very wide back. Nice V shape going. Keep up the solid work.

    Thanks, your comments are appreciated.

    Is there any bodypart you feel i need to improve or focus on. i feel i am fairly well balanced, i will also add some leg pics soon.

    I have identified my abs as a target area for this next year, i have never trained them so now there a peeping through i am going to hit them hard and hopefully have them popping out this time next year.

    That's very nice improvement. We have very similar BF% level, I only see the top two rows of abs. You're my height and you look just slightly smaller than me. Although, I am 200lb man, why is that I have 10~20-lb over some people at the same height and they look just as big
    Anyways, you look awsome!

    Thanks big geek

    This is the lowest my bodyfat has been since beginning training, so its also the 1st time ive seen my abs. Im aiming to keep cutting for another 5 weeks or so and hopefully reveal them lower ones.

    I've been cutting for 4 months now, I went from 218lb down to 200lb. I've seen my top abs for almost 2-3 months, but I still have the small "spare tire" around my lower ones. They are the hardest to get rid off.
    You have to be real strict about your diet and keep pounding the cardio.

    I guess i will just have to keep pounding away at the cardio and keep my diet as clean as possible.

    Not a whole lot to critisize here. Getting those lower abs to show is always a pain. I tend to hold water and fat right there also. Try pounding the lower abs with hanging leg lifts or decline reverse crunches.

    lateral delts could use some more definition, but overall looking good

    Good job. I can see the difference - big time.

    Just curious though. Are you doing light abs or weighted mid/heavy?

    Thanks

    I havent trained my abs until this last week. Ive never realy focused on them but now they are peeping through i am hitting them hard once a week. Not started any weighted stuff yet.

    Herc, thanks for your comments. I have included hanging leg lifts in my abs routine, they are excellent. Thanks for that. when you say lateral delts are you meaning my rear delts, sorry mate just want to indentify the exact muscle part so i can give them some hard work.

    Thanks to you all for your comments.

    Nope,

    Medial delts, my bad lateral raises is the exercise used to hit them (I think)

    Herc

    Remember, lower ab exercises won't "spot reduce" just tighten up the muscles below so hopefully the tire doesn't sag so much.

    A little cardio, some ab work and you'll be there in no time!
