        Thank you guys for the feedback! I'm pretty critical of myself so I'm already looking forward to making improvements to my physique.

        Update pics...squatted for a ton of volume on Monday and hit back pretty hard Tuesday so I was having a hard time getting legs and back to pop as much as I'd like. I normally take pics Fridays instead of Wednesdays as thats when I feel I look the sharpest. Weight isn't changing much lately.

          Awesome quads man. Your back is pretty thick as well. You should be good to go in 11 weeks. Keep killin' it!

            Ugh, that damn scale If there's one thing I try to remind myself during prep, it's that the scale isn't always a reliable tool. I worked with Skip for my last prep and only lost about 10lbs through the whole process. My weight didn't budge at ALL for the first 5-6 weeks, yet each week I continually looked leaner.

            When you are done with prep, look back through your pictures, starting from 17 weeks out - that's when you'll really notice how well you improved week to week.

                Thanks a ton for the kind words guys and the encouragement...I appreciate it! I gave myself some time because I am on the road...a lot...for work. My company puts me in the Residence Inn everywhere I go so I always have a kitchen and a grill which makes it easy. With training, I stick to just a few basic movements because I am always in different gyms so it helps to keep things simple and I can track progression that way.

                    Thank you!

                    I've been having pretty good workouts the last few weeks despite being on the road and living out of a hotel. This morning was a "Pull" day...snapped a couple RDB's post-workout when I got back to the hotel to see what my back looked like with a little blood in it.

                      First thing out of bed this morning, before any food, water, or cardio. Weight is around 185 empty stomach/bladder. Strength is holding out but feeling flat. Today is a refeed day so I should fill out some.

                          Thank you! I have work to do yet, lots of it, but I feel like I'm in a good place right now. I'm starting to get excited for offseason so I can add all the size possible as that's what I need.
