    Sometimes we just have to put in the work, let the boss make the macro changes and go with the flow. I also was having some issues with losing weight (mentally) than anything the first 2 weeks. I checked my weight daily and would freak from 2-3lb fluctuations after all time lows. Even though I know it would stil bother me now, I quit jumping on the scale so many days in a row because I realized that was not helping me overall. Now I am just taking in week and bi weekly weigh ins and that helps a lot. I can see the changes from my pictures that I am doing pretty well moreso than judging solely by the scale.

    I agree with you on the weighing frequency thing. I have been doing bi-weekly weigh-ins in the morning after waking this prep and I feel that I'm not quite as hung up on weight as I was in the past when I would weigh daily.

    Weight: 189.2lbs
    Current Pics: http://sports.webshots.com/album/582172059KZQcBp

    Really disappointed with this set of pics. They still look like I haven't lost any size; however, I feel like I still look really smooth. Layne has also made some adjustments so I'm optimistic I will see some solid improvements heading forward.

    I think their is definition change especially around the midsection from what I see. You are still at the beginning of prep, I am right thier with you on worrying about weight loss even though i've done it plenty times before. I am just thinking we are really just fine tuning things before things get deep, so why worry now when this is the easy part.

    Thanks for the support. I think things are moving in the right direction. Doing things slowly so I preserve muscle mass sometimes just leads to me being impatient.

    5. 10
    6. 10
    7. 10
    8. 10
    9. 10
    10. 10 (Century mark! Volume PR)

    DB Bench:
    1. 90x10
    2. 90x10
    3. 90x10
    4. 90x10
    5. 90x10
    6. 90x10 (this has got to be a volume pr also)

    Lying Rope Pulldown:

    2. stack x15

    Great high volume workout. I've had put in 12hr days the past couple of days and was running on less than optimal sleep. That plus the gym being really cold inside was making it difficult for me to warm up and get into my workout so I decided to mix things up a bit. Really happy with this workout. Alternated bw pull ups with db bench then crossovers and had a pump everywhere. Did a couple more lifts to get some more volume for my crappy back and called it a night. Really kept things moving also. Got 28 sets done in just under 1hr and 10min, however, it was cold enough in the gym I really wasn't sweating much, but I still had a really great pump.

    10x10 on pullups that's awesome, Pete! I think part of the non sweating thing is prepping. Wait till you're that dude in 80 degree weather lifting while wearing a hoodie, complaining that it's cold

    Pics looking good and that pullup / db press high volume workout was nasty! You've retained great strength for being down to the 180s.

    Thanks! I see myself in the mirror every day (trust me, I pose in the mirror multiple times daily) so I don't notice much change. It is always reassuring that others are seeing my progress.

    I have been really impressed with the way I have maintained strenght this prep. Other than some of the lifts where I can tell my waist is smaller and I have less stability, my strength really hasn't gone anywhere.

    It's good that strength is still up! You're much stronger at this weight versus last prep from what I remember. Wait till you're about 2-3lbs away. That's when even db work is daunting because carrying the damn things to the bench is like the hardest thing ever

    I feel like I am much stronger this time around:

    Start of 2008 Prep (190lbs):
    Squat: 365
    Bench: 275
    Dead: 455

    Start of 2012 Prep (195lbs):
    Squat: 425
    Bench: 320
    Dead: 515

    Hopefully the strength continues to stay up and hopefully my increases in strength will show onstage.

    you started really lean...hopefully i can be as lean as your pre-cut pics by summer lmao

    anyway the lighting in the first set of pics is different than in the others, but your upper abs/serratus and erectors and middle back look noticeably leaner.

    Thanks. You better hope to get leaner than what I started out. I wasn't all that lean and even now I still have quite a ways to go, but I'm slowly making progress and will get there by June.

    Solid workout considering I had put in a 12+hr day and cardio Wed and wasn't too far off of that before this workout on Thurs. I ended up not getting to the gym until after 7pm and it was fairly dead so I did my thing and got a good workout in. Legs Friday and then I'll be taking my next round of progress pics on Saturday and doing shoulders/arms.

    Really long day on the research side of things. Things aren't going too well for me on that side of things right now. I just keep making stupid mistakes and kicking myself afterwards. I got to the gym in time to get this one in before it closed and actually had a really good workout and got a really huge pump. 21 weeks until I hit the stage.
