BTW Excellent progress in a short timespan. Pic looks great. You have excellent motivation. Keep it up. I still think you should put some lean mass on now.

Hey, Scotty I don't mean this in a crappy way. It is more of an observation. I noticed that, although all of us made postive comments you only responded to the positive comments that came along with what it seems like you want to hear. I just want you to understand that since you asked for honest feedback, we have pretty concrete reasons for advizing what we did.

If what you wanted is to know you did a good job, etc. Well, hell yes. And good luck.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

Hey Eric, excellent observation and no offense taken. You are right. Unintentionally, I think I fixated on the positive comments and not on the critiques. I think it's human nature (or at least my nature) to do so.

I agree with everyone who said I need to put on some lean body mass. I definitely plan to do so but I did set out with the original goal of sub-8% body fat and I'm not one who sets a goal and then changes it half way through.

I have adjusted my diet somewhat in an attempt to preserve lean muscle mass while shaving the remaining fat. I have seen incredible strenth gains thus far (which should translate somewhat to muscle gain) while cutting my fat drastically. A lot of people say that can't be done but it worked, at least, for me.

So, I have tried to glean some wisdom from the comments here but I'm not wanting to disregard my cutting goal and go on a full on bulk to gain some mass.

Scotty

Scotty, it's definitely human nature. I wouldn't have been able to make such an observation if it wasn't. BTW, I wouldn't take any of the comments as critiques. There is nothing to critique, IMO. Just suggestions as to ways to proceed.

Let me point out that 8% fat is not such a bad place from which to proceed gaining muscle. Also, I don't really consider that "cutting" so much. I see nothing at all inherently wrong with you goals and I am not personally a guy that goes around telling people this or that can't be done. Everybody has different goals and they should indeed be encouraged to do what makes them happy.

Your observation about strength is right on the money. Absolutely.

However, I myself wasn't really encouraging you to go on a "full bulk". All I was saying, really is that your bf level at this point, IN GENERAL, could be taken as a good level for gaining lean muscle. I didn't mean you should start putting on appreciable levels of fat in the process.

Just wanted to clarify that.

Thanks bro, I appreciate you taking the time to respond. You definitely have considerable "rep" around here and I appreciate you taking the time to help out a noob like myself.

Well I hope my "rep" is deserved. I'd hate to think this is all about popularity

BTW, a 7 month old and doing all this? Kudos to you!
