View Full Version : I am done bulking... guess my BF %!

After 3 months of slow and steady bulking I have decided it's time to cut up again... I am going away in 4 weeks and am using my trip as a goal to get lean... I will be bringing down my calories by 500 per week from 4000 now starting next week until I go away... Right now I am just a hair short of 200lbs (depending on the scale) so it's safe to say I put on about 20lbs in 3 months. I was taking an andro supplement up until 1 month ago and aside from that I am still clean... I am getting a BF % test done at my gym tommorow morning, I was 9% back in June when I hit my lowest weight of 177lbs... what % do you think I at now? In case anyone is wondering, I am 5'10" and 31 years old... Thanks!

Still looking pretty lean, maybe 10-12%? I say keep bulking!

20lbs in 3 months?!

That's pretty insane. I'm not trying accuse of anything, but it's pretty hard to believe you are natural. Excellent work.
Back shot looks awesome.

Yeah. You still look pretty lean. Why are you cutting so soon?

Well folks... the results are in... It’s official I am a bulked up 11% BF… I guess that’s a pretty poor attempt at bulking by most people’s standards… I am however very pleased that I gained almost 12lbs of lean mass in about 12 weeks… Gaining 1lb of lean mass a week is not to shabby in my book… my next objective is to get down to around 8%BF for my trip next month!

It may not be a good bulk by many people standards, but those people are wrong. You are doing the right thing by starting cutting now while you can still see your abs. Bulking up too much then dieting down, you loose too much muscle in the process. You did an awesome job. If you even just keep 6 lbs of those 12 lbs of muscle you gained, that's an awesome gain, keep doing that and imagine how much muscle you will have in a year or two! Great job man, you're doing this the right way.

The andro did nothing for me... in the past month since I got of it, I feel like my stretgth has actually increased... it's all about the diet! This is what my daily diet looks like... the fact that I am in the gym 7 days a week for about 5 hours a shot, does not hurt either! It is possible to get results without juicing... I could never be natural and look like the IFBB freaks in Flex, but there existed well built guys prior to the modern days of steroids!

You look pretty impressive. Nice job on the bulking. Cool Escher print in the background, too. I saw a collection of his originals,including the one on your wall, this past summer .

You look great.


To the Andro comment, Andro doesn't do ****! It is completely worthless as a bodybuilding supplement. 100%. End of story.

Looking great.

That's cool that you posted your diet. Can you post your training split, too?

And for cryin' out loud post some pics of your wheels already! lol

It's been 2 weeks since I had my body compositiion test done and I have been gradually bringing down my calories in order to try to get back into the single digit BF % range... I just took these shots today... what do you think.... Am I there yet? And yes, I know I need to get waxed and work on my tan :)

I say the next pic your wife takes she should aim the camera a little lower.

The idea is to see your wheels.

Here are my legs... still a work in progress!
