    Pete - an early before pic

    OK.....NO laughing. Only a few folks here have seen this one, but I figured it was about time to let the rest of the family see it. This one was taken a couple of years ago. I did too much cardio, and really underdosed on carbs. As you can see, I was still at about 14-15% bf and had no fullness to my muscles. I believe I wieghed about 195lbs. Compare that to the next pic from late January. I will post some updated pics (when I feel I lokk good enough)

    Sicilian....test prop/EQ/winny

    MJ.....hair looks the same

    JJ....245ish....currently 236....and getting lower. BTW...I think everybody already knows this, but I'm currently on my 2nd ever cycle. I built my base naturally and I was an ecto-meso growing up.

    Wow Pete, if you can do it I can......well, lets not go that far

    I can still hope too though....that makes the eating chicken breasts and ground turkey, with tasteless rice and pasta all worthwhile. I think.....

    :sigh:

    LOL

    Yeah!!!!! I was hoping you would post that picture Pete - until these guys see that one that I saw when you started - they aren't possibly going to have the same respect I do for the work you have done lately. Pete is a true symbol of dedication and a model of someone who takes the game seriously and accepts nothing but the best for himself.

    EXCELLENT job Petey!

    Pete reveals all!

    I have to say Pete you still looked good in the early photo...you had a nice taper in the back and some nice guns as well!...Now if that other guy would get out of the way in the second photo we could ...OHHHH! S@#T that's you

    How is the cutting going Pete?

    Thanks everybody. I'm about half way through a cutting stack but haven't been as strict with diet and cardio as I should (kick my ass) but I have been training legs religiously. No excuses but there have been a few "personal" issues that hvae kept me from being as focused as I should be. Anyhoo, he's a pic of my arm, as you can see I'm beggining tp lean up a little. I have about 20lbs more before I reach my goal and I will post additional pics then.

    It's all an illusion Caines my friend. My arm actually only measures about 19" cold flexed...so when I get as lean as BK it will probably be 18-18.5". That's why I don't get it when some people inflate their measurements. Maybe I'm wrong but 18.5-19" looks pretty big to me....not "BK big" but big nonetheless.

    True, I don't get the lying either.....hell, you saw my pix...my arms are around 15.5 flexed, that's what they are and I'm sticking to it, and I can't lie about it.

    Well brother, keep up the work, I'm interested to see what you will look like in about 4 more weeks. Keep us updated please !

    Ohhh, lemme ask you this, how much "actual" weight do you expect to lose on this cutting cycle?

    Man Pete you look awsome especially in that last pic. Can't wait to see the end results! Personally I would have never guessed you had all that hair under there! You look a lot better when you were younger too so odn't be ashamed of that pic!
