And that whole period from 208 to 231 was supplement free no creatine no nothing

I think the 208 pic looks really good.. you look like you've put on quite a bit of muscle though in the 231 pic compared to 208. What increase in fat have you noticed?

hehe... i was just asking thats all. I did something similar ish last year. Went from 200 to about 240 ... even though i packed on some fat i felt much better. Then i started to play football again and realised how much easier it was to run being smaller :)

Keep doing what ya doing, looks good and good luck in ya quest.

Good job man. How long did it take you to reach that weight from 160/170? I 'm starting my bulk at around 165 hoping to hit 200 in a few months.

Was this all in one bulk? Or were there cutting periods? If this was one straight bulk gj on not packing on much fat at all between 160/170 and 208. How was your diet here?

Your back looks beastly at 231. Im hoping to get back up to 200 soon enough, I love eating :D

this is over a 2year period at an estimate my memory's not the best.
I have cut twice but that was 1 year ago so from 190ish it was straight bulking.

You looked awesome at 208, but you're just massive at 230lbs. You have a small waist too and a nice v taper. Good work. All this without any supplements of any sort? That's amazing progress.

How tall are you? and How long was this bulk? I think BF asked a similar question above

Dude, like Jay Dub said, you have great potential. If you train seriously like you have been for the next 5 years you'll be a monster.

I'd like to see some pics in the future.

Good luck with your goals.

Thanks stump nice to here from a beast like you. My chest has never been the best. just measured my waist and its blob on 35"

I think the rest of the body is probably in line looking at some of your lifts. Honestly even from the lightest pics 160, until now you can tell you've got some good genetics for this stuff, be it bb or power stuff. Most impressive progress.

I personally think your back looks better when it was more defined (around 200 ish) but kudos to you man... Im having hard time growing my lats

Everything looks better with lower bodyfat. I think he still looks great considering the weight he's put on.

Damn, your lats were already impressive at 160/170. Great separation, nice shape. At 231, they're totally insane! Seriously jealousy-inspiring.

How's the front? Do you have similar progress shots?

Keep up the good work samj, you're a beast.

Looking really good great progress, what about your chest is it as developed as your back. I'm also just about at 240lbs, but i'm holding a bit more fat than you. Also how long you been training for, what sort of time is there between the pics.
