The purpose of this thread is for my own benefit and to help me stay motivated. I would like to look at it as my personal log =D
I'm currently working a lot, and busting my ass off at school, and I don't want my main priorities in life to go against my goals in fitness. I almost gave up lifting about a month ago after I injured my wrist, and I felt like I was wasting my time doing this. And then I realized I was wrong, lifting is my passion, it's basically the only hobby I have in life.
So since this is basically my personal log, I will be updating it with my Diet and workout routine, and upload new pics at least once a week! I plan to reach my goal in exactly 5 months from now, so sometime in May.
I will post my recent pics: Starting from oldest to latest.

December 2012 180lbs 10.9 %
Demember 2012: Current: 180lbs at 10.84% bf

good progress, no homo, if you want a critique then it looks like your shoulders don't keep pace with the rest of your arm progress in the recent pics and your traps need more work. And you didn't post legs, so..Lifts:
Weight: 180 lbs.
Don't have heroes; look up to no one. Because as long as someone's leading the way, the best you'll ever be is second.

With your "refeed days reaching 4000 cals, aren't they just going to average out your weekly intake?
Ie 3500 cals in a lb.
Eat 1500x4 3000x3= 15,000 cals for the week
Eating 1700x7= 11,900 cals for the week.
Person 1 will lose 1/4lb
Person 2 will lose 3/4lb
So why would you rapidly increase and decrease your cal intake, isn't it widely known you increase or decrease your intake gradually regardless of goals?
If you bulk 500 over 1 day, cut 500 the next bulk 500 the next and so on you won't increase or decrease your weight.

Thanks guys! appreciate the comp.
Just added Neogenix Supremacy to my diet.
Supremacy® is a synergistic matrix of specialized herbal extracts designed to optimize endogenous hormone levels for enhancing muscle growth while accelerating fat loss.* This is systematically done by modulating estrogen levels, indirectly increasing testosterone production, freeing bound inactive testosterone, and reducing prolactin levels while improving nutrient utilization.*1rd Rule: Have more than you show.

It's been two weeks since I've been on this Tboost, and I must admit, I do feel a bit stronger. However, my stamina has increased a lot. I usually balance my energy throughout my entire workout. But since i've been on this TBoost, I feel like I can go HARD on every repp. Muscle discipline baby.
Also, ever since i've been on it, i've been feeling more energized overall during my days.
2 week stats:
-Strength Increase: 6.5/10
-Stamina Increase: 8.2/10
-Overall Energy: 8/10
The only thing I don't like about it is that it is suggested that I take it 15 mins before a meal. I tend to forget and take it after I eat, and I'm not sure if it makes that much of a difference.
Major power stats increase:
Chest Press: 5%+
Shoulder press: 16%+
My shoulders were always the weakest part of my body, and at this rate, it will no longer be my weakest link.
Incline DB Chest Press: 110lbs for 6-8 <-- =D
Deadlift: 455lbs single <--- Can't budge half a pound.
DB Shoulder press: 90lbs x 6 <-- big difference with shoulder strength
Squats: 185lbs x 12 (Ass to grass)
I'm going on a two week cut starting tomorrow.
Current Body Fat: 10.34%1rd Rule: Have more than you show.

Reverse Extensions: Burn out at 80lbs
