    Another BF Thread, Input Wanted **PICS**

    So, in April I had just gotten divorced, and weighed about 198lbs at about 25-26% BF. I used to be in really good shape, I was Army MFT; but my ex-wife was as lazy as it gets and well, I became just as guilty.

    In July I decided to get back into shape, read the stickies and changed my lifestyle. I've been trolling F&N for about 7 months now.

    I know these pics only show about a 6 week difference, but in January I decided to cut down even more (going to Jamaica in a month) and was wondering what my BF% is?

    I know I'm a total newb and can't pose for shit. But I'm looking for a) BF eyeball and b) areas I need to work on.

    I'd also like to say thanks to everyone who contributes to this board, lurkers like me are really appreciative of the help.


    Edit: these pics were all taken after cardio, so I'm not "pumped" at all in any of them.
    Double Edit: I know I'm whiter than a f'ing ghost, you try getting a tan in Afghanistan during the winter :dunno:

    areas to work on...lats, delts, traps are the things that stick out to me. Just keep workin at it and hitting your back hard to widen it out little by little. Good work so far :bigthumb:

    ~ 15/16%

    Not much muscle going on there, so I think bodyfat is higher than a glance at the pics might be thought to be.

    :dunno:

    I haven't been eating enough for the last three months to gain alot of strength, I still lift 4-6 times a week though.

    I'm benching 205 3x10, squat 225 (weak lower back), DL 315x3.

    I know my lats and delts need work, I beat the hell out of them everytime, I haven't changed up my workout in a while and like I said before I'm not eating enough to get a ton of growth at this point.

    I plan on cutting through mid-march then staying at maint. levels until September. September I'm going for a clean bulk with the goal of putting a good 15lbs through the fall and winter.

    Should I take post-workout pics too or are they as useless as getting dark lighting and trying to pretend I'm bigger than I actually am?
