Been lifting with WBB 1 for the last 2 and half weeks. I don't know if I should be bulking or not, but I am eating a lot of protein, with the good carbs and cals. Around 2600 every day. I am taking creatine as well.
5'9
167lbs probably little bit more now that I am bulking.
I am just afraid with bulking that I will become a fat ass, as I am not exactly thin by any means.
Anyways, I have never posted pictures of myself anywhere before, and I hate my man boobs, runs in the family(moms side). Girlfriend of three years broke up with me, so I decided to improve on myself for once. So don't be to cruel.

Your "man boobs" don't look like too much of a problem, how old are you? they may even go away.


As a :newbie: , you shouldn't get too concerned with bulking and cutting. The main thing that you need to focus on is getting enough protein and enough food to pack on some muscle. If you're showing some dedication at the gym, chances are you won't really put on much fat in comparison to your strength gains.

After a while your gains will slowly start to slow a bit, and you'll feel really comfortable stepping into the gym and having at it. That's about when you should consider bulking or cutting. The problem with cutting from the get go is that there's not much muscle to work with and you'll look awkwardish cutting away fat. A strong clean diet should take off fat and add muscle for any newcomer :D

Hope that helps!

damn I should have cleaned that mirror. I am 22. Junior year in highschool I was a fat ass weighing in at 200, got down to 150 for a while as a senior. I should have started lifting then.
Thanks for the advice!
