    The above pics are a timeline starting July 2011 until now. I've alway been under the impression that results appear for those who lift the most weight. Not the case. Begining Jan 2012 I change my whole workout regime to include range of motion and HITT(High Intensity Interval Training).

    I started daily lifting around July 2009. My goals at the time were to lift as much weight as possible. My personal best was 500lb deadlift, 350lb bench, and 255lb military press all weighing in at 210lbs . I really didn't diet at the time. Just took a whole bunch of supplements and constantly ate and ate and ate. My workout partner was doing the same amount of weight so that helped alot with the motivation factor......always trying to one up each other. I've completed Tri-Phase three times which gave some impressive gains.

    Fast fwd to 1Jan2012.......while deployed I decide it was time for a six pack and to get rid of A LOT of excess fat. So I cut carbs and sugars. No more deployment desert line. I got with Sean266 and he gave me a some tips and pointers. Dude is has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to bodybuilding.

    EDIT: WORK IN PROGRESS

    Aewsome results!

    Question:

    Obviously you gained size first while Lifting heavy. And then you shredded down. Would you recommend going this route? Or if you were to start over, would you do HIT first?

    I've always been a husky guy so getting size is easy. It's keeping the strength and shredding down that's the hard part. From my experience gaining size first and then shredding down gives result. Whenever I deploy most co-workers bulk up the first three months and then shred down the last month with great results. The key is to always keep your body and muscles guessing. I will prolly bulk up a little once fall comes around. Just so I can shred it for spring. Kind of like a bear.

    Thanks dude.

    Box Squats: 45x15, 135x10, 185x8, 225x5, 275x3
    Barbell Lunges: 135x10, 145x10, 155x6
    Good mornings superset with deep squats: 95x10, 105x8
    Leg Press(5 lower half, 5 upper half, 5 full leg press): 180, 230, 230
    Single leg curl(Hammer): 60x10, 70x10, 70x8
    Then ended the day with 15 mins of ab work.

    I work out in the morning so my first actual meal of the day is after the gym which is usually around 1200. I always have egg whites and toast. Eggs are organic Costco brand. Sometimes I'll throw in one yolk for the extra calories. As for toast, sprouted wheat or brown rice. I spend the extra money and get the hippie stuff in the frozen section that way it'll last a while. My favorite is Ezikiel bread.

    For a while I was a brand whore buying the whole "stack" when it comes to supplements. Started with BSN, then Gaspari, and onto Universal's Animal. Don't get me wrong, I got good results. And I believe 98% was placebo. After throwing dollar after dollar at these large corporations I decided to cut cost and actually read the labels and compare price per serving. I found a stack that's affordable with good results for me. Once again, it's still 98% placebo, but I'm willing to pay for it.

    Preworkout- I currently use Noxipro. Caffeine, creatine, and beta-alynine along with other proprietory crap makes for a good pre-workout first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Noxipro has been banned by the FDA so after this is done I will switch to Craze. I also mix in a scoop of BCAA's.

    During- I've been using BCAA's during my workouts for about two years. It keeps me from getting muscle fatigue to quickly along with everything else the label says. I used to use Scivation Xtend which tasted amazing. Only down fall was $$/serving. So I made the switch to Allmax non-flavored BCAA. No frills just BCAA's.

    Postworkout- Of course protein. Since $$/serving is important to me I found that Designer Whey Protein is the best value for what I'm looking for. I buy it at the base commisary for $19/2lbs.

    Also, other stuff like ZMA, Fish Oil, Flaxseed Oil, Glucosamine Chondrotin and Animal Pak multi-vitamin are thrown into my daily regime. And the Metamusil is for days when I'm off my "schedule".

    Fat Burners- Yeah, I've tried them. Personally I think they are a waist of money. I found proper diet has gotten me 20x better results than weight loss pills.

    It's funny cause the quick metabolism guys are always "man I wish I could put on weight". My response is always, "I wish I could take off weight."

    Thanks.
