    Approx 73 1/2 days..

    But seriously, I was focus on adding some muscle before you even think about cutting, you won't look ripped yet because you don't have much muscle to begin with.

    it will take 1-2 years of bulking and hitting heavy weights then 6 months of cutting.

    you cannot be ripped without muscle you can just be skinny. if that is what you want then you could do that in probably 2-3 months

    I think it's hard to say just by looking at the picture. It would help if you posted your weight and bf %. Abs start to show up when your body fat drops to under 10%. You could probably make very noticeable progress in about 3-5 months if you're training hard and eating right.

    Why do you need an exact timeline? Give your best every day in the form of diet, exercise and rest. Nothing happens overnight. I started lifting weights back in January. I know my goal, and I set a timeline of 3 years. I'm already happy with the gains I've made, but to get where I want, I know it will take a while.

    EXAAACTLY!!!!!


    FAT IS ESSENTIAL in your diet, especially for natural test production. Yep, google it. Healthy fats ARE GOOD FOR YOU!!!

    Honestly, I think the cave men had it right. when you kill an animal eat all of it. Or in the case of modern times, when you buy a chicken at the store, roast it, eat the skin, the dark meat, etc.

    If you're "cutting", well then you will want to curtail excess calories.
    Obsessed is a word used often by the lazy, in order to describe the dedicated.

    For what you want, I put you out at 5-6 months. You can be happy with your results before summer hits if you dedicate some serious time and effort to it.

    Right diet + right workout + right rest = profit

    Don't worry about putting on a few lbs of fat throughout the winter, just work your muscles hard and do a short cut in the spring to lose a bit of weight. You probably won't take long to lose a couple lbs, if you want to to see some nice abs at that point you may have to do 1-2 months of cutting. Best get started now, we're into the middle of December bro.

    Hit it hard if you're serious about it.
    16 week cut: Start 165lbs 20%. Target 145lbs 10%

    1/17/2011 = 165 ~20%
    1/24/2011 = 163.5
    1/31/2011 = 162.9

    2/7/2011 = 162.8
    2/14/2011 = 159.7
    2/21/2011 = 160.7
    2/28/2011 = 160.1

    3/7/2011 = 159.1
    3/14/2011 = 158.1
    3/21/2011 = 157.3
    3/28/2011 = 155.5

    4/4/2011 = 153.9
    4/11/2011= 154.5
    4/18/2011

    U said u only want to be moderately big with good chest & abs. Dude, that goal will make you look all out of proportion. Lift for every body part, not just the ones you want to bring up today. And ditto what others said before re: packing on some mass/pounds.
