    thanks guys, it wasn't easy. I worked my ass off but ate around maintainance, heavy lifting 3-4 times a week, running a lot, HIIT running. My original goal was to get a 6pack but i'm still far from that, now my goal is just to increase my lifts, dont' care as much about being lean enough to get a pack.
