Well good luck with your clean bulk and reaching your goals

yep just happened to me

was at 225lbs at 5’9 strongfat, hired shelby, ended up around 175 lmao

figured id be a jacked 190… NOPE

it’s humbling

This is what I am focusing on too for the next few months, not major ‘cutting’ just a bit of damage control so to speak, spent nearly 2 years going from 175 up to 242

Now I’m 6’2 235 lbs somewhere between 16-20% body fat if I am hazarding a guess.

Fortunately though being a tall dude I can carry the extra fat off.

Good luck man, spent many a night in Newcastle at that place that had the waitresses in bikini’s (Baha’s?)

Where you pretty jacked at 175lbs?

How was your experience with Shelby?

I am down 22lbs I look a lot smaller but probably need to lose another 22lbs lol or more before it starts to look ripped…

Its awful :S Feels like you work all your life to get big then all of a sudden you are just fat lol

Oh no

DoubleDuce, Paulie, how much strength have you gained or lost during the process of cutting? Just curious.

left, 225, right 170-175.

was a miserable experience, but it was my own fault for being so out of shape.

miserable, but it got it done, Shelby killed me, and im happier than ever before that i worked with him… can’t even tell you how happy.

4 years to get that fat… 13 weeks to lose it, thanks to him. Now im working with him in the offseason for 52 weeks and loving every second of it

guy is an incredible asset

…am I delusional, or were you not really that fat???

Paulie and Austin got pretty sloppy, and I think they would say the same. You, at least from the back, look basically like a dude who could stand to lose a few but is by no means fat.

haha thanks bro, i think it’s because my shoulders are pretty broad for my height (5’9) and my waist is pretty narrow (29)

creates a nice illusion was i was pretty chunky… could see 4 abs tho

Hey Mr. Walkway, how did you feel about losing all of that weight so quickly? 50 lbs in 13 weeks is crazy! Obviously it worked but were you concerned about losing a lot of muscle with such a agressive cut? Is all of this talk about losing 2-3lbs a week bullshit or what? Good job bro!

my head nearly exploded with rage at this comment lol…

sorry, everyone asked me during my prep “SO HOW MUCH STRONGER DID U GET???”

as if i actually got stronger just because my muscles were now visible… all the girls were like “wow you lost so much fat and gained so much muscle!!”… i just nodded and smiled… (they don’t understand these things)

strength always declines, id say it’s basically directly proportional to how hard you are dieting… unless you are natty before you start prepping, and jump on AAS during your prep.

but thankfully bodybuilding is a muscle competition, not a strength one

it was a miserable and painful process. Fortunately, i was on gear, so while my strength tanked (as it does when losing weight quickly), i didnt lose as much muscle as i would have, had i done it naturally.

all this talk about 2-3 a week is not bullshit. Shelby said my prep should have been 8 weeks longer at least (ideally). I honestly just wanted to push myself… it wasnt actually even for a competition, i just wanted to see how hard it would be.

and thank you (:

I’ve dropped about 15 lbs (~7 kg) since the start of December; the BMI measurement says I’m down about 6 percentage points. I took CT’s advice from his mutation series: dropped my carb intake to 50 g a day or less, having one cheat meal/day a week, adding intervals to my cardio. It seems to be working fairly well, but it certainly takes time.

There will come a point when you get sick of the diet and feel like stopping; you feel worn out and don’t think you look any different. Just power through it and keep your goal fixed in your mind. I hit this point a few weeks back, but now can see some changes peeking through in my midsection; this gives me more motivation to continue. Keep at it.

Personally I have never had that problem.

Lookin real good man.

You must have been starving by the end of that cut huh? So hungry that your butt decided to eat your shorts :wink: lol

But seriously, looking good. Are you planning on doing a show after this offseason work with Shelby?

I didn’t ask you because I knew you lost a ton of strength, but you also did what would normally be considered an inadvisable cut. I was interested in DD and paulie, who took a much longer time with their cuts.

As Stu says, “everyone should cut down at least once”.

Mr. Walkway, I’m seriously impressed.
It seems you lost no muscle on your backside (and if there was muscle loss, it must’ve been very negligible).
