Hey fellas, this is my picture journal. Update every 10 lbs or so.
Oh ya, I'm not too concerned about looking perfect, being a powerlifter and all. Anyways... here's my plan.
Start off at 155 (you guys can try and guess my BF%)
Go up to 185, fast. I hope to be no more than 13% at that time.
If I'm still fairly lean, I'll keep going up until I'm "too" fat. If I'm already fat, I'll slow it down.
Looking to end the bulk at 214ish, then cut down to 203ish.
End result should be 200-204 @ 8-10% body fat. I'll compete in the 198s.
I'll start it off with my 154-156 pictures.
I'd appreciate body fat guesses, as I have no way of finding out for myself. They do caliper tests at my gym, but I got it done last week and it they said 15%? I don't think so.......
Here I go! I'm a pretty sucky poser!
Sorry about the lack of leg shots. They are like ~23 inches around the thigh.
They just look so embarrasing , I'll post the wheelz eventually though. When I have something resembling Fuzzy's thunder thighs, LOL.
You have a lot of potential with your frame. I would guess your bodyfat to be about 12% or so. I looked at your sig and you have some great numbers. Keep it up.
Why did you black your face out on every other pic?
You'll look pretty stacked at 205. keep it up, but keep that bf in a good range.
Thanks! 12% sounds about right... I will keep it up!
Lol, because I looked constipated from flexing so hard. Thanks man, I'll try to keep it in a good range .
you look great!
2000 or bust
I can see the effects of the fatty shakes ahhahha.
Hard to believe that you put on 10 pounds. Your lats look much better i dont know what youve been dooing but the wings are sprroutin baby. Your shoulder mass also looks better. Good work try not to puton too much fat eh?
haha, ill be updating my pics soon end of the summer pics pretty much.

We cant all have thunder thighs!
But the lat pop looks great! real strong all over.
Being a strong teenager means nothing.
My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.
Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.
Yes! The third picture is the first time I ever made it pop out, it hurt! Almost cramped up, lol. Thanks buddy!
Thank ya dude. Still got a ways to go!
Maybe I should start squatting 5 times a week? Lol, thanks Fuzz.
205 will look hellamean. Excellent work thus far Bako, can't wait for the conclusion.
You look so farnkn young, makes me feel old.

Very impressive lat improvement, and really your entire back overall. Just out of curiosity, how old are you? You look super young.
You look awesome bro. You definately look your age, but you put my lifts to shame!

Keith, my grandma puts your lifts to shame. No I'm just kidding bud...no im not.
Considering you don't really care to look perfect, you have a good looking physique. Good job on the steady bulking too.

Education alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.

Yeah, I thought you were older as well. Take that as a compliment to the responses and advice you give on a regular basis. Bulking to 214? Once you start getting bigger, you may want to push it to a nice 220 pounds and then cut down from there. You'll be amazed at how your strength comes along.
While we are on the subject of how you look - if you are indeed a "powerlifter" as you say, I wouldn't worry about your bodyfat percentage or how you appear without your shirt on. Don't worry, you have a long way to go before you get "too fat" as you pointed out. However, I completely understand the weight range and wanting to compete at a certain level.
Is it me or is your entire room painted in Denver Broncos colors?
