    Lightbulb HELP NEEDED! Regarding my current workout

    Hi everyone

    Could really do with some help on my current workout, so many thanks in advance! Context: I've been invited to a pool party for New Year's, so the pressure is on! I know I shouldn't be so vain -- it's stupid -- but I can't really help it, either.

    I've attached two pictures below. Honestly, I'm not unhappy. But I'm also not happy. It could be so much better.

    I wonder if you could advise me on what I can do to really push it for the next eight weeks before New Year's? Specifically, what has always bothered me is the area near my belly button and below, which always looks a little bloated. What can I do to really make my abs pop, like, getting me to Christiano Ronaldo levels, haha.

    I have a PT + macros that I stick to already and have been doing that for a while. What my PT has told me could be better is to get healthier sources of protein (I relied a lot on shakes) and carbs (less pasta and bread, more healthy carbs like vegetables).

    I should also note -- and this is important -- that I am super dedicated: last year, for example, I was at my lowest ever body fat of only 8%, but I still (!) had that bloated area around my belly button, so simply losing body fat didn't do the trick.

    What I'm thinking of doing is to just really stick to my healthy nutrition and no drinking whatsoever, and hope that that will help me. What do you think? Thanks so much guys!

    Josh

    The names of the foods you are eating are far less important than the number of calories you are consuming. I suggest heading over to the nutrition section and reading the stickies there.

    You've asked for help with your current workout but haven't posted anything about it?

    If you want to be leaner, eat less and do a bit more exercise.
    That's Litterally it get enough protein then its just, cals in cals out.

    The right answer is usually "it depends" And those that talk in absolutes should almost certainly be ignored unless you want to buy their stuff.

    It looks like you are trying to achieve the Mark Mussler/David Forrest look. You're getting there. But like he said ^^^, get enough protein and cut back on calories.

    You going to cite any sources? What is a "protein diet"?

    OP ignore dumb comments like this one.

    Caloric deficit is the key my man! As long you eat 0.8-1g of protein/lb of bodyweight you are good to go! Btw you can't spot reduce btw so you just have to diet harder than last time to make those abs pop!
