you guys think my abs are underdevelped, or do need to lean out more, both? how much weight do y'all think i need to lose to be ripped?

Hey GREAT job on the fat loss and bettering yourself, for the ab question leaning out has alot more to do with visible abs then ab development but to answer you question, probably both, your definatly gettin' there!

Hey man, lookin great. Like LostUp said, good for you for bettering yourself. Dont know what your diet looks like so we cant critique, but obvioustly you know what your doing to drop 52 pounds! Some suggestions on what to post would be diet, work outs, measurements etc. Once again, lookin good keep up the good work.

dont get frustrated now,... you have come too far already to now feel that way,.. keep doing what you have been,..... and as far as the abs thing goes,... do you do a cardio program of any kind?.... or is the weight loss due to diet?....(cardio always helps me bring out the detail in the muscle and shed any extra fat)... when you feel frustrated look where you started,..... good luck..

i got down to 195 by july 03, then i tried to "put some muscle on", and ended up piggin' out and makin' excuses. went back up to about 212, then got back down to 197 in about a month and a half. up umtil this time all my weight loss was due to eating five or six meals a day, lean protien and complex carbs, and lots of water and ECA's. i hit kind of a plateau at 195-198, and looked to the owner of the gym i go to, and he put me on this diet:
1. 6 egg whites, 4 oz lean meat, 2 slices of nature's own low carb toast.
2. protein shake
3. 8-12oz lean meat, salad (2 cups lettuce, 1/2 a tomato, lowcarb dressing.
5. same as meal 3, but w/ 2 cups low carb veggies, and no worrying about the fat of the meat.
6. protein shake
lots of fish and flax oil, and water and some sugar free jello!
workout 3x a week- chest, shouldrs, tris/ legs, lower back, and traps/ back, bis, forearms
haven't been doing any cardio for a while, the owner of my gym says it' not necessary. argues the point of caloric expenditure not being enough to make a big difference, says it's basically a waste of a time for a guy my age because my heart gets all the workout it needs when im liftin' and ****in'! I do feel like i got results from the cardio i did earlier in my thing. so i think i might start back. what would you guys suggest for ultimate fat burning, and muscle retention? thinkin' about gettin swolgenix.

i figured i'd go ahead and post up my only body part that is bb status......forearms!
12-18-2003, 10:26 AM #11
Nice forarms! Mind me asking what kind of workouts do you do to them?
12-18-2003, 11:34 AM #12
i've had big forearms since i was 11. working out has just made them bigger. i only do a few sets of wrist curls once a week. masturbation has played a role, im sure.
12-18-2003, 11:41 AM #13
good lean look to ya, id def hit arms hard as hell, dont want those forearms bigger than the real part..lol. nice shape bro, keep it up, and i burn about 600cals doing 45 min on the elliptical, so id def do cardio if i were you.

Alpha, you are looking good bro. seems you have put in a lot of effort and time. All I have to say is keep it up, you have worked to hard to start slacking off. As most people end up. Keep up the hard work and you will end up where you want to be.

pumpseeker- i totally appreiciate you taking the time to give me some good advice! let me ask you a question....
are you saying that my diet should be the same ye*****ound? how many calories do you the diet above would be?
my short-term goal was to get rid of the layer of
fat around my midsection, have visible abs, then get really serious about trying to gain muscle. i figured i'd really know how to dial in my diet after that too.
i didn't get my goal by jan., so i want to make absoolutely sure that i'm there by the summer! would you say the above diet would be the best way to do that?
obviously, i don't know a whole lot, but that kinda seems like a lot of calories to get ripped. have you always been ripped?
i train at 6:30 am, mon, wed, fri.
