    What do I need to focus on now to achieve my goal ? (pics)

    Hey guys, just want to start off by saying hi, since this is my first post. I have been working out for about a year and a half and have made some improvement. I I'm going for the extremely ripped look rather than big muscle and mass.

    This is what I started at:

    Then these are the two most current ones:

    This is where I want to be: (Yes, the infamous skinny Tyler Durden)

    Where do I need to improve in? What should I concentrate on and how can I change into what I want. Should I just concentrate on fat loss?? I'm getting confused.

    Yeah remember in those pics of brad pitt he is in perfect lighting. That helps a lot. You are about 10-20lbs away from where he is in those pics.

    You'll need a ciggie and tussled hair. Some bruises and blood wouldn't go astray either.

    But seriously, I'd say you need a bit more of a bulk and mainly in the arms, Brad Pitt's arms and shoulders would have been worked on specifically because idiots just look to the guns to gauge strength.

    Don't forget either that he is:
    A: A sex symbol.
    B: In a movie where they have people devoted to the lighting so you get the warm and shadow-thrown light, which works a treat.
    H: 5' 11" ____Squat: 95kg ATF
    W: 72kg _____Bench: 80kg
    BF: lowish _____Deadlift: 130kg

    You're like, already at your goal?

    Maybe work your abs a little bit more.

    And please do not make the mistake of doing 1000 crunches a day.

    Abs are made in the kitchen. (Abs come from your diet!!!)

    Good job on practically achieving your goal.

    What is it with guys wanting to look like "Brad Pitt from fight club" ??

    I've seen this reference a zillion times on this board. Oh well whatever blows your dress up.

    I think you look as good if not better. Get oiled up and and dehydrate for a couple of days. Don't forget about this guys budget and ability to acquire who knows what kind of help to get a ripped body. I think he looks too damned skinny.

    If we need a Brad Pitt reference, I'd go with Troy. Looks very good in that movie, could just be a bit more cut.

    To the OP: You're actually almost there as most people have said. A bit more muscle, a bit less fat and you're done. With some work you could be there in like 2-3 months.

    No gym for home, work out floor with 30, but is it for 20 like 30 lb when you no lift it to be for men, for 30 lbs instead? or half is 10 for 20 pounds?

    When I realized that I had bitch tits, which was in the first pic. I started to cut fast, I hit the gym with a basic 3 day split (chest and tri's, bi's and back, shoulders and legs), at the same time I was playing hockey once a week with martial arts 3-4 times a week for about a hour. As for in the kitchen: I ate around 1500-1700 calories a day, obviously cut out fast food and sugar. This continued for about 4-5 months were in that mount of time i lost about 20-23 lbs. Then I was here: 003.jpg picture by floods7 - Photobucket

    Then I knew I needed some muscle so I started and anabolic diet for 5 months where I put on a lot of muscle. Then, unfortunately I broke my jaw and had to have it wired shut for 6 weeks and lost a lot of weight. After that I tryed to eat good carbs, high protein, and a good amount of fat and that brought me to where I am today. I always have a lot to eat after a workout, and 2-3 meals throughout the day. I know I should eat more but I just don't have the time nor the appetite. Today I am on a 5 day split with less cardio.

    If anyone can give me specific help I would really appreciate it!

    You look good, skinny as hell, but still good. I would say you are fairly close to your goal already.

    My personal opinion if I wanted to ever look like brad pitt it would be in troy. he is a little more built in that movie and not such a bean pole.

    But then again I would rather look like Leonidas than Tyler Durden. I wonder if we hear more about looking like brad pit in fight club or Gerard Butler in 300? Those are probably the two most sought after bodies that I hear about

    Yep, you're there if that's your goal but based on your question it seems as though you don't believe that.

    Could be you're self conscience because of what you use to look like or you're falling into the trap most of us do. The "I will never look good enough" trap. It's certainly not a bad thing if directed in a positive manor.

    Personally you have a great foundation to pack on another 10-15 lbs of muscle. That's the direction I would go, but to each his own.

    I known what your both saying. Im not like one of those girls that say im fat when they clearly are not. Im just wondering what to do to really nail that look. Thanks for all of the responses. As for working on abs, Obviously loose a % or 2 of BF but should I work on upper, lower abs? any specific movements/excersies? I would also like to get the line down the middle of my chest and definition at the top. I have pretty cut out flat bench and just do incline but is there a better way to improve on the upper top and upper middle of your chest?

    No, the muscle grows as a whole. Cutting out flat bench isn't a prudent move.

    But that's not really his goal or he wouldn't have posted... I mean who really really wants to be a skinny botch like Brad Pitt? lol

    No seriously dude, wanting to be small doesn't compute with me but yeah, if that's what you're looking for you're gonna have to lose some muscle cause you're looking tons better than him right now.

    I would work on your shoulder mass, that's the only real thing. Could add some arm mass while you're at it too and some ab size but otherwise you're about 4 months away from perfection for that physique

    To clarify why I want that look... I am a model/actor and my agent says that my face works with the extremely ripped/chizzled look and not the bodybuilder look. She says I need better abs and have smaller obliques in order to get a from straight line down my sides. Right now my obliques seem to poke out from too much muscle or maybe even fat.

    it's probably fat because I find that's the first place I put on fat I find. You don't have like a crystal clear 6 pack either no offense so this suggests that there's still bf that could be lost
