My monthly pictures have been updated. I’ve lost 4 pounds of fat this past month, and it really shows in the pictures. Last month at this time I was right on the top edge of 8% body fat (perhaps I was even at 9%), but this month I’m at the bottom of 8%. It’s amazing how much just a few pounds of fat show at sub 10% body fat levels. Even though I’m cut up, I’ve lost quite a lot of upper body muscle due to my shoulder injury. I guess that’s what happens when you can’t lift for 5 months… Like I said yesterday, I’ve been doing my pushups again and am still 100% pain-free. I’m going to the doctor tomorrow and am very hopeful that I’ll be able to start my upper body training again within the next few weeks. I will have to be careful to not lift too much for the first few months, so I doubt I’ll be able to add much (if any) lean mass for a while. I just want to make sure I’m back at 100% by the end of the summer so I can bulk this fall. I want to add 2-3″ to my arms and 3-4″ to my pecs. Obviously my lats and traps need a lot of work as well, so they will receive particular attention.

Time for my cardio. Today it’s 9 miles or 50 minutes, whichever comes first!
