.  I think it's safe to say I am probably holding more lean muscle than Kevin Levrone is right now even looking as I do.

Adam is right you would need to drop 40lbs to find ripped lean muscle.  You don't carry enough muscle on your frame to cut down any less if you want to be shredded. You are going to lose muscle especially in your first go at dropping the body fat percentage in the 6-7% range and right now you are not carrying any more than 135-140 lbs of lean muscle and that might be generous.  Just the nature of physiology.  The body will gorge some muscle the first time around.

Earl, I'm not saying that as praise for myself, just to show that Kevin has drastically reduced in weight.

Also, I don't buy for a second that I would be under 140 if I got shredded.  This picture is from 2004 at 180-185.  I have been as much as the low 200s in the same condition if not better.

I would be utterly shocked if I had to lose 65 pounds from there to get shredded.

Realistically I would put myself in the 160s completely ripped.  165 or higher I would say.  That is even using TA's estimate of 40 pounds lost, if I started the cutting phase at 205.

Anyway, I'll post some clips from my digital camera to start with within a week.  I don't think that at that point anyone would honestly think I would be 135 ripped.

The back picture is from August of 2005.  The second picture here is also a bit older and at a lighter body weight.  That is about as lean as I am in the 200s, where you can see the outline of my abs.  That's the only copy of that picture I have on this computer.  Either way, I'll get more stuff up later.

Yeep!

Looking good.  You are right in confirming that you need to lose 40 lbs.  No big deal!


You have an interesting muscle shape,shorter than mine...I have very long muscles.

You look great Matt....Now Diet down or else it will just get harder and harder....No reason to carry that bodyfat!

Let me correct that.....It won`t get harder, it will just take longer.  That is all.

Now get on it!

Not yet Adam.  I would want to see if I could get to 205 before doing that.  Now I think that is a stretch unless I plan to gain a little fat too.  I think around 202 is realistic in the same condition I'm at as long as I do it slowly over the next 1-3 months.  Muscle memory is very real.  I'll know I'm good to go by the feel and by the strength.  If I was just getting fat I would just be able to tell.  Both mentally and in the gym.

Good delts, Matt.  Post your shoulder workout.

I'll do the next best thing and post some clips.  I'll have no excuse to not have a clip up of using the 100s for dumbbell presses all the way up and down to upper arms parallel to the floor for a good set.  All my workouts consist of are the basics: heavy dumbbell and barbell movements and a few machines thrown in for good measure.

haider - thanks for the info on chest.  I'll be sure to keep that in mind.  I know I have other weak spots, but to me chest is the main thing I have in mind.  I'll post some pics from the front in this thread in the weeks to come.

Looking good Matt.

With all due respect to others, I also would disagree with the statement you need to lose 40lbs to be ripped.

Adam is right when he says that people don't realise all the fat they have on their body but it is just plain stupid to call Groink "obese" or saying Matt has 40 pounds of fat to lose

Agreed, 25-30 tops. 30 and he'd be a roadmap.

However, I think Adam overestimates because of how much muscle he lost while dieting improperly. That would explain the 10-15 lbs he's off by.

Nope.

Nothing to do with that. I am going by proportions and the amount of visible fat.

What's all this talk of dieting off 40 pounds? You need more mass. I don't understand why you would even consider putting bulking on halt.

Great shoulders though.

No such thing as bulking.

What is the purpose of gaining fat?

Tell me again how many times you've competed?

Oh yeah, I forgot...you actually have ZERO experience in the area.

water weight as well.  If he lost 25lbs he'd be ripped but not contest ripped.

If he's dieting correctly, he'll gain muscle at the midpoint. Essentially, for a few weeks he will remain the same weight but get harder and harder.

Actually, yeah, that's exactly what you'll do. Although you stay the same relative weight, you will get harder and leaner.

This is generally followed by a burst in metabolism which requires dietary adjustment to maintain muscle.
