    My wraps are ****, they only give me about 20lbs. I got them from the local sporting goods store. And my belt is a ****ty one from walmart I don't know if it adds any to my squat just keeps me tight. I'll be ordering some real equipment here soon before my meet on apr 3rd.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    So I'm done with my bulking cycle thank god, I'm so ****ing sick of stuffing my face all day. I went from 170 and finished at 197lbs with 13.7% bf. I stayed relatively lean through my entire bulk as I did a clean bulk. Took a lot of effort to eat 5500 clean calories a day. I'm down 9lbs so far and am at 12.7% bf. I compete in the 181 class apr 3rd hoping to make an 1150 raw total for my first competition. All of my food is weighed or measured and documented into fitday I'll probably drop down to 10% with just a high carb low fat clean diet. Then the fun starts with carb cycling!




    Front relaxed



    My quads actually leaned from gaining 30lbs lol! Well my squat went up about 100lbs in 3months as well





    Back isnt very impressive till I get very lean

    I'm glad I stopped in here, looks like a great journal... very impressive squat - with a cheap belt and cheap wraps you still owned that 465! It looks like you are very successful with training people which is great, not always easy to find what works for each person. Great stuff in here!
