    looks like you got it all worked out. yeah ive been concentrating on the quality of carbs ive been takin in recently and it has improved things, however ive gained much better results by adding another 2litres of water a day. seems to have boosted my energy levels and i dont shift in water weight as much as i used to.

    Hey guys i'm new here
    5'11 156lbs 24 years old

    I'm going for the Abercrombie Model look.I've been on a cut for about 2 months. Should i start bulking or should i continue cutting given my goals?

    Thanks, and have a successful day!

    You dont really have any muscle on you. So if you keep cutting your just going to look anorexic. I'd say find out what you maintenance calories are. Then eat about 20% above that while exercising correctly.

    that helps a lot i've just had a hard time really judging how i look in the mirror cause i see it everyday. Would you say to start eating more even if my goals were to look like an abercrombie model? cause all i see on those guys are ripped abs. not necessarily huge muscles. any replies would be greatly appreciated. thanks guys!

    Okay, that's about 8% body fat. You can do that if you like, but it will cost you a lot. A lot, that is, in terms of time, dieting, and some muscle loss. You may be wiser to start with some muscle building (hypertrophy) first, then cut.

    With more muscle you'll be able to lift heavier. That will help save your muscle when you cut back on calories. Besides, it will give you something to show off when you finally get down to 8%...

    You'd be better off being around 160-170 @ around 8% if you want the appropriate look. Your pecs are too small and you need more v taper which you will get from slightly bigger lats and delts. Bulk to probably around 180-190 then cut down to 170-160...

    You make a good point about being hard to judge in the mirror especially since things change so slowly. Since you’ve already started I would keep taking pictures at regular intervals, whether you want to post them or not. It’s much easier to gauge your progress comparing before and after pictures than just looking in the mirror.

    If you’re going for the look in the picture you posted then I wouldn’t follow any of the standard HST workouts. You want to focus on building some (not a huge amount) of size in your chest, shoulders, biceps and abs but not your back, triceps, butt or legs. In other words you’d actually skip a lot of the compound “mass” building movements and focus on things like Flyes, Curls, Front, Lateral and Rear Delt Raises and abs work. You might be able to get away with some Incline Presses but you don’t want to develop big Triceps. Some Close Grip Chin Ups might also work as long as your lats don’t get too big. You do want your lats somewhat wider for that look but not thicker. Definitely stay away from heavy Squats, Deadlifts and Rows as they will make you look more like a body builder.
