    Weighing in at 185.6 here are the bulk pictures. Up from 170lbs. I've been eating clean about 5-6kcal per day. I've pretty much platued on my diet. However, that's not a problem as I'm not even close to my strength potential at this weight. My goal is to maintain this weight(or gain without eating dirty) till my competition.

    I don't have very many pre bulk pics here they are


















    I'll get some pics of the wheels and back up soon as well.

    Pics are good. You do look like you are built for more size and could easily make further gains imo, especially depending on height - how tall are you?

I dropped to the floor and just start squirming in pain. Anyone who has ever had one of these knows there not fun at all.

    I didn't see your old journal but will definitely sub to this one from the start! Your lifts are strong & you're looking lean! On a serious note from someone who's brain has literally exploded, you should go get that headache checked out straight away! You've had it for days! I had warning headaches before an aneurysm ruptured & ignored them. I just thought they were bad headaches & nothing more. Not trying to worry you but better safe than sorry, especially seeing as though the headaches are triggered by exertion & an increase in blood pressure. I hope the pain has eased. Best wishes.

    Hey thanks for stopping by.

    Yea, if it doesn't go away next week I'll talk to my doctor about it. I used to get these then they'd just go away after a couple days. I pretty much know what a doctor is going to tell me though. "rest" nothing more nothing less. Which is inevitable what I'll do if they don't go away. It's only jumproping intensely and benching that give me the headache so far, nothing else...
