    I did everything the same. Same order. No distractions, the weight just felt MUCH heavier than it normally feels (mainly from the bottom part of the lift). I honestly didn't even think about the...

    Over the past month I put on 5 lbs (172 to 177), but 2 of that was fat (14.5% to 15.5% bf). It was a dirty bulk. I ate whatever I wanted as long as I reached my protein and calorie requirements (170g...

    Been bulking 2 weeks and I'm averaging 1.5 lb/week. I think it will taper down to 1 lb/week b/c I had a 1-2 pound jump (water/glycogen).

    Is 1-1.5 pounds/week a good rate?

    Bulking and unsure when to stop.

    I'm currently bulking, trying to reach 180 by the end of the year. I'm currently at 172 and estimated 14.9% bf (calipers). At what body fat level should I begin to cut?

    Also, how long should I eat...

    Anterior delts seem fine. It's my lateral delts that are lacking. Any opinions on which is more effective, shoulder press (dumbbells) or military press (barbell)?

    Lifting alone would be beneficial, but would you rather work for $5/hour or do the same work for $10/hour? It's up to you.

    Nope. I am the same way. Some people use a lighter weight that will allow them to keep the same reps for many sets.

    Personally, I keep it heavier.

    It's closer to 3-5%.


    Muscle will show if bodyfat is low enough. Obviously smaller muscles will show up less than bigger ones.
