I said I wouldn't post alot of progress pictures but I did say I would post here and there. This is from three weeks ago. The following week for some reason I smoothed right out and lost all signs of cuts but I knew why that was happening. I have also lightened the picture and removed some of the shadows so it was a little clearer. Just keeping 💯. I'm much sharper today then then I was in this picture, and everyone has been saying my diet face is coming. I just noticed it yesterday.
2 Points to make. 🅰️Trust the process. Sometimes you're body is going to react and trip out and fight off burning fat. Sometimes it's going to fall off from what you think is "nothing". Your mood, your sleep pattern, your tempo of your workout, the little things you add in your food and switching sups are just some of the little things that can show up in your physique. So make sure you cross your Ts and dot your I's 🅱️This is the level of leaness of I'd like to keep in my offseason.
However, I believe (just my person opinion) that how lean you stay in your off season depends on three things. 1. How discipline you stay in your off season diet and your life balance. 2. How much cardio and how much you workout in your offseason. 3. How much mass you currently have and how much are you TRYING to put on.
The less muscle you have to put on the more you can focus on maintaining via diet. The more muscle you build, the more calories your body will naturally burn on its own. Therefore it's still possible to stay fairly lean while bulking but it's a little trickier because your muscles need a SLIGHT surpluse to continue growing. The bigger that surplus the more potential (*genetics,diet,your metabolic rate, daily caloric use etc) for growth but also you risk gaining more fat from the surplus your muscle doesn't use to grow. The question is when you diet down how long will you have to diet to keep those gains or how hard will you have to diet and potentially lose those gains. #balance #preplife #motivationmonday
