I wasn't really comparing… just interested in the ratios. For example, the fat intake is basically the same. I'm not a big eater anyway… could probably eat for a week on that shit.

wut?!

Just watched furious. The Rock legit makes Vinn Diesel looks like a weekend gym warrior who doesn't diet. And I LOVE Vinn Diesel, but damn Rock is a specimen.

30 rep sets of ezbar curls (as in just the bar) actually bringing the gains lol. Elbow pain is much better as well

Im not really that fat, but still have a bit of a belly. However, flexing abs really flattens this out, suggesting to me that that the issue is more weak abs than fat . Does this sound reasonable, and is the cure horrible tonic type abs work like planks?

I have a feeling I'll see way less ripped guys with six pack abs than expected... which makes me way more relaxed about looking mediocre cool.gif

As a positive comment next to all the "mate y'all are fat slugs!" bashing that we had over the last days, I think it's great how we all strive to get better, be it now strong, shredded, good at statistics or buying the best rice cooker in the world.
I'll go to the gym now and cry because I bench so much less than you guys... until I realize that most people at my commercial gym bench less than me.

Actually I've hit my "weight goal" this morning. Still have a donut around my waist. Weight goal adjusted. Get ready for my "ethiopian goddess" look for June 1st worship2.giffacepalm.gif

Do you mean flexing abs as if you would take a punch to the stomach? If so, its not really unexpected that your waist gets smaller. If you relax your abs the stomach tends to get bigger.

Training the abs is not the answer for a smaller waist. The abs will grow just as any other muscle, so the waist gets larger. For me this has especialy been the case for the obliques. My waist is not very thick, but a lot wider than when I started.

Losing fat and good posture will decrease the waist circumference.

My macros when dieting are 10% fat 60% carbs 30% protein. Quite a lot of guys on gear run low fat high carb when they diet because you don't really need the fat for hormonal function and you can take much more volume so more carbs are helpful.

I fully expect to lose this contest but it's a great opportunity for me to actually have a reason to cut for the summer. Also I don't need to be fat as fuck when I propose to my girlfriend this summer.

Waiting for my CFA books to get here so I can eat breakfast, lift, eat again, take amphetamines, go to the library and spend all doing studying then go home eat and sleep. Easiest way to cut, no way to snack.

Oh, didn't think about that.

Perhaps that is the case.

 

I do know though that an anterior pelvic tilt makes the stomach appear larger. Women often have APT which can make their stomach stick out even though they are actually thin. My previous APT has almost vanished completely from strengthening the core and the hips/glutes. So I think it can be related to your hip alignment and hip strength as well.

The fat intake is often made in relation to bodyweight. Usual numbers for fat intake are 0.25-0.5 per pound of bodyweight (you can go higher of course).

Considering that The Rock weighs a lot more than the average guy, his fat intake is actually not high at all, while it is relatively higher for the untrained, regular weight guy.
