Dilla's Progress Thread.

Well, I've decided to start one too. My primary focus for the next 4 weeks is to try a cut. I have never tried a full cut before as I have been lucky enough to have a great metabolism and can eat whatever. I have decided to wait another year to compete in a bodybuilding competition due to the fact that I am moving twice this year, and changing schools to finish out my engineering degree. I think it will be better to build up more mass and develop my week points over the next year. I have been lifting for about 6 months now since I have had eye surgery. Prior to my surgery I wasn't able to lift for 6 months, due to the risk or my cornea tearing completely and loosing my eye. Prior to that, I was just recovering from my ankle surgery and a few months in to heavy lifting again. Now I have finally reached 180, from 160ish post surgery. I am currently at 10.3% +/- 3% bodyfat. My diet prior to this cut wasn't horrible, although I intaked about 4000-5000 calories a day, I ate red meat 3-4 times a week, but did have a bunch of carbs. Now I am focusing my diet to more leafy greens and chicken/fish, and also starting cardio 3-4 times a week outside of my weekly hockey game.

My goal by spring break is to maintain muscle mass while trimming all the fat I can to see all my abs and more definition, after that, I'll probably go back to a bulk, we will see.

Here was my leg workout today, it consisted of a primary focus on quads, next leg day will focus on hams.
