Progress pics taken 12 weeks out…

These are some progress pics that I took 12 weeks out from the 2010 Atlantics.

So far so good. I’ve been eating a low carb diet and it’s working really well for me. I can see my definition improving.

After taking a couple years away from the contest stage I’m super motivated to really hit my all time best shape ever for this show.

Here are the 12 weeks out pics below…

    Wonderful. Very very, very good Lee. Your progress is just mindblowing. You are the Scientist.

  • Andre

    coming along nicely lee, sorry to critique, but you still have to work on the definition of those quads. once thats done, you should be set for the gold

  • Chapman

    Looking good Lee! Hopefully the hams will come in the next 12 weeks, but man your calves and back are looking REALLY good to have only been shredding for a few weeks now. Keep it up man!

  • Thanks for the feedback, I know I still have a ways to go yet, but I’m happy with how things are going.

    I’m around 210 in these pics. I’m not worried about bodyweight, all that matters is that I get as ripped as possible. Generally, the leaner and lighter you get, the better you look on stage.

  • linda-allan

    lee you look awsome your my new mentor your emails are great look forword to the next one

  • ANDY

    AWESOME LEE !!!!!!!

  • Salvatore

    Personally, I think you look flat in these pics. It’s probably because you cut the carbs. Then again, what do I know.

    I’m really looking forward to seeing your physical evolution from your current condition to contest day. Thank you so much for doing this.

  • Sean

    Coming along nicely. It is cool to see the cuts start showing as you rip down. I try to stay at 10% BF year round and cut during summer months to 8%. The hardcore cutting phase is just too intense!

  • ettarrass

  • Amazing Lee…wow, keep it up. I wish I can get there some day…or even close!

  • Kris Hall
