    To be honest not much difference for just three weeks. But then again, it's only been 3 weeks. Are you cutting? What is your diet like, cals and ratios. What kinda of split are you doing?
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    Too much cardio, IMO. Personally I'd drop the cardio after your leg day to give your legs thier needed rest time. Remember, too much cardio can be catabolic.

    cardio expends more energy which=calories. It is still a good cardiovascular workout (heart,lungs,circulatory system) but not good for bulking phase.

    If you're going to be critical of somebody at least let him know where he could specifically use improvement- especially if it's your first and thus far only post on WBB.

    As for my input, I don't see much of a difference if any but that is because it's only been 3 weeks. My reccomondation is to NOT post progress pics like this in such a short time frame. Try doing it every couple of months and weigh yourself once every week (at most). It's easy to get discouraged if you constantly try to see where you're at.

    Cardio 2 times per week is plenty, especially with a lifting routine. Give yourself at least 1 day completely off from training, no abs, no cardio, no weights, just dieting. Add some more healthy fats to your diet.
