I have been posting here since 1-03 and have never been around a digi cam long enough to post any pics. But finally I got some. :)

Notes

1. I got one week left in my bulk
2. My current stats are in my sig
3. The pics were taken with a cell phone camera
4. I suck at posing
5. The lighting wasn't the best

I am about to start my first "real" cut and I hope to shed some fat and reveal this hard earned muscle.

If anyone could guess my BF% it would be great. Thanks a lot in advance



Here Are My Pics:

I think you're looking good bro! To be honest, I might even suggest a little more bulking before your cut. Some people will say your BF% is to high but I would guess 17-18%. Good work!

I got it tested when I was 170 and it was 10%. So it could very well be that high. I was thinking like 15-16% myself... but I could be wrong.

thanks though

If you are at 17% now that means you're up roughly 12 pounds of muscle. How long have you been bulking? Does that sound about right to you? 12 Pounds of solid musle sounds to me like 6 months of good natural lifting and eating. I also don't know how acurate your 10% check was when you were 170 so its really hard to say.

Those look pretty damn good for a camera phone. And you're looking huge, man. Hopefully in another year I'll be where you are.

I've already mentioned it in your journal Mic, but I will say it here again; I don't think you should be cutting.

well, i would love to continue bulking, but there are several problems.

1. my clothes are no longer fitting
2. my waist is 35.5 inches at my belly button
3. i suck at cutting and i would like to be a lot lower bf% by summer.
4. i said my goal was 16.5 arms and a 25.5 inch quads. both goals have been reached.
5. i feel pretty fat now everyday

once again, i would LOVE to continue bulking, bulking is easy for me and i love it.

but i feel like i've put on some quality mass, 30 pounds naturally to be exact, and i would like to see some of my work in the form of cut muscles.

but i'm always open to advice. thanks for the props fellas.

Mic, looking big there bro. Some huge arms you have. I think you are in that gray area of should I cut or continue to bulk. I guess it comes down to personal judgement. I would definetely be considering it at your BF and I am almost there lol. But there is lots of time til summer and 200 at 5'11 isn't that fat. I think Veet is the same height with 15 more pounds. He doesn't think you should stop. IMO also, you could go a bit further.

How big do you want to be eventually?

I understand your dillema - I couldnt decide whether to get cut with what I got or continue bulkiing -

To be honest, Id carry on, then you'll look even better when you do get cut.

Good work though, keep it up!

Great bulking. Reaching 16.5" arms is great news and they look it too. Excellent size Mic

Eventually I would like to be as big as i can get naturally. My ideal body would be something like this....

thanks for all of the compliments fellas. you are making me want to keep bulking. But right now I feel like my 35.5 inch waist is very fat, and I dunno if I want to get any fatter. But another half inch on the arms and legs would be nice.

By the way guys.... here are two pics of my before I started lifting weights. These were taken sometime in late 2002. I was in Florida at the time. I weighed about 150-155 and my arms were like 13 inches. I guess I've made a lil progress. :)

well, I'm wearing 38's right now. my waist at my belly button is 35.5, but lower down by my hips my sh-t is like 38-39

Soon I'll be wearing 40's :(

You don't look like you're wearing anything about a 36. Honestly. I would suck it up and bulk for another month. My BF% is higher than your right now and I really want to cut. However, I decided to push it out till beginning of march and I think it will be better for both of us to keep bulking a bit longer. One month isn't going to kill you, but when you do cut that extra muscle is going to look awesome!

u bastards have almost convinced me :(

lmao... i really want to keep bulking but being a fat ass sucks. Thoug, some 17 inch arms would be great too. I may continue to keep rolling. I'll figure it out before the end of the week.

thanks for the advice.

fat storage varies so much between individuals its crazy. i have a friend who has at least 5-8% more bf than me, but no matter, his face is still thinner, and i don't exactly have the fattest face in the world.

You look good. Your traps especially look good.

If you want to cut then you should. There is no law that says you must cut hard and starve yourself. Do a slow cut and maintain most of that muscle.

Id defo keep bulking mate, looking at your before and after pics you've made great progress, and Im guessing you've got the potential to make a lot more!

Chris is right, bulk for another month or two, I know it sucks having too much fat (trust me I know how you feel :) ) but its better in the long run and you'll look better for it when you do cut in April/May. You could maybe put 1/2 an inch or an inch on your arms in a month.

thanks a whole lot fellas. I measured my arms after working out my biceps tonight and they were right at 17 inches. It's my goal to get them to 17 inches cold before this bulk is over. :)

Good attitude! Keep it up till you tape 17 cold then think about cutting.

Mic Soloist
02-07-2005, 12:59 AM
hope so. I've made my final choice. I'm going to cut after V-Day. Hopefully I'll be close to 17 inches by then. I measured today cold and I was nearly 16.75

I'll measure again in a couple days.

I chose to do one more weak of serious bulking. My arms are now 16.75. I hope to get them even bigger before I start my cut on Monday.
