From today onwards, I will post a front photo and a back photo of me on daily basis until my fourth competition in Oct 15. It will be interesting to see the changes. I have been on a very high caloric diet (3,800 – 4,000 kcal/day) to put on as much lean mass as possible in less than 2 months before the 12 weeks cut. Hence, the chubby look but the six packs are still there vaguely. Back in the my head, the fear of being fat again is not as strong as it was when I was prepping for my second competition during my mass gaining phase and I was at similar weight with higher percentage of bodyfat.
“You’re fat with six packs” is more like a joke from coach Ben these days. I still remember than that ‘OMG! We need to fix this’ look when I was putting on too much bodyfat before the cut for my second competition.
Of course, with the high caloric, energy has not been an issue. I have been able to lift heavier from week to week. In some ways, PB some lifts.
Heaviest weight of the day: 81.9kg. I can’t believe I was only 72kg six weeks ago looking like this.
