diet- im trying to bulk my way up to 200lbs. Only thing i have been counting is protein which has been a consistant 275-350g of protein everyday. If i had to ballpark fats 100-200g and carbs would be 300g or so. I am not concerned with gaining fat

weight was 172 which was depressing as my face is starting to puff out and ive lost my 6pack..but im at the same weight and stronger??? Might have to clean up my bulk, but ill stick with the quarter pounders atleast till 180, enough of them will get me there haha ;)

edit again: i have a hard time believing that weight. I think the scale is wrong, all other scales show me being 175-180 even though thats my normal scale it dissapeared for a few days in the gym i think they did something to it! My bodyfat is up, and im stronger than ever so i must weigh more...right?

So i just added up what ive been eating for the first time in awhile today was:

4,928 calories
82 grams of fat
557 grams of carbs LOL
452 grams of protein.

Really didnt expect that, every day has been similar. Could be a little off, but thats a pretty close ballpark.Today was a healthier day. All the carbs come from food, and very little sugar but they are high on the GI scale. But what the hell, thats what winter bulks are for right?

After that my back was so tight i was limping, took me forever but i made it to my car making an old man grunt with every step. Its a big issue now, when i injured it 4 weeks back deadlifting i asked my buddy how my form looked and he said it was fine, must be a case of **** happening?? any input on this or possible thoughts?

Im also switching my routine back to a 5 day split, i feel like i just do much better Size and strength wise on it, lower volume just seems to get me injured and fat.

It will look like

Monday- chest- 1 set of tri
Tue- Back- 1 set of Bi
Wed- Shoulder+ trap (if no deadlift)
Thurs- legs
Fri- arms

With this i've seen the most size and strength gains, though im also considering


Mon- Chest,tri,shoulder
Tuesday- Upper Back/bi
Wed- leg- quads
Thursday- Chest
Fri- Lower back
Sat- hamstrings

I've done this before too, and seen solid gains but im not sure if i can recover fast enough for this i may add 2 days off in between. Any input?
