Ain't no one going to gain 3" on their arms and lose a bunch of bodyfat in 10 weeks, no matter what you're on.

Optical illusion, ya dummies.

Measure your torso where? Chest? Waist? Both?

I am one of the slowest cutters in this thread. Most other guys here cut faster than me and seem to just want it to get over with. I don't have that approach. The whole reason I am so calculating is to ensure everything will go as planned (according to what other experts advice) and to not risk becoming fat deficient or get some similar health issue. He had initially planned to cut on way lower calories than what I gave him, which could end bad. Remember, I lost fat very slowly while gaining or maintaining strength on my cut (which btw were more of a recomp by the end) while many other guys lose strength or stall out. You and I are fundamentally on the same page about this.

Why would you suggest a program to someone when you had problems on it. Mark wants to be big and have a low bf percentage. if losing 30 pounds takes 15 pounds of muscle off of him hes literally where he was a year ago. We definitely are on the same with the slow cut approach, i can agree with that.

Once again, not to be rude but i saw your before and after pics and you definitely didnt lose 8% bodyfat and you literally could have picked up 10 pounds of noob gain muscle doing push ups, bodyweight squats and curls in your room.

Knucks is/was natty. But yea, I think powerlifters especially make great before / after photos. Just because they are strong as hell and under that bloat and a bit of bodyfat is a ton of thick muscle fiber just waitin to get pumped up. (at least that's what i tell myself in the mirror)

Ask any bodybuilder or anyone with a respectable amount of muscle on them and they'll all tell you that losing bodyfat will make you appear big.

Yeah i know im doing it right now. look closely at that picture. its not even close. the first picture had no deltoid development at all, the second one looked like he had been repping 225 ohp.

I follow the advice i read from i think it was John Meadows. i meausre rightt below my sternum, right at my bellybutton and at my hips. i am mostly concerned with the bellybutton area for aesthetics but thick measurements above your navel area seems to correlate with having a lot of visceral fat, which we all should worry about.

He probably could rep 250 OHP easily

I had problems gaining muscle on it, but that was prob just due to too low calories. Anyway, I found it effective and easy for cutting so I recommended it solely for that purpose. 

 

Bear in mind that there's a big bulk in between the first and second pic (no lifting to end of cut) in those pics of my transformation. There's no pic there showing how I looked after gaining 20 pounds or so. I was def a prob around 14-15% t the end of that bulk and I was ending my cut about 8%. So yeah, 8% difference was maybe an exaggeration, but there's still a big cut which isn't shown.

On another note I started carb cycling yesterday. I'm pretty sensitive to ketones so can tell exactly when ketosis starts. It sort of feels like the opposite of going Super Saiyan.

Is greg nuckols actually knucks then? I swear knucks was pulling like 500lb or something.

Find me the cycle that has you lose twenty pounds raw weight while gaining significant muscle in ten weeks and I'll pay you 100 bucks.

knucks isn't greg knuckols. I tipped off greg about this place on reddit because I thought he was knucks, but he's a nice guy so i'm ok with my mistake.

iham do you have resources for your recommended course of action?

I'm sure he can, but that before picture was definitely not taken ten weeks ago, more like 3 years ago.
