    What was your diet like on the bulk?

    It doesn't look that bad at 230, and it looks like you retained quite a bit of muscle mass on the cut.

    thanks very much, i am pretty happy. strength is WAY down right now.. but muscle has stayed so i should bounce back once im done. bulk diet was the following.. scaled as time progressed.. but when i was wrapping it up, looking through my old fitdays.. it was this

    pre workout
    maltodextrin 50g
    dextrose 50g
    whey 30g
    creatine 7g
    12oz skim milk

    breakfast:
    2 sandwiches consisting of
    2 cinnamon raisin bagels, toasted
    4 egg whites each
    4 turkey sausage patties each
    4 oz of cheddar cheese each
    16oz skim milk

    lunch
    16oz 97% ground beef
    9oz rice
    10oz cheddar

    dinner
    16oz 97% ground beef
    9oz rice
    10oz cheddar
    16oz skim milk

    before bed
    30g whey
    12oz skim milk

    just remember... when in doubt, add more cheese

    What the hell, you must have bird bones or something to look like that at 180lbs. Looking awesome.
    22 - 5'10@236lbs!
    Bench - 325 (old)
    Squat - 455x2 (old)
    Deadlift - 500(old)

    Total: 1280lbs 100% raw




    The key to my exercise program is this one simple truth: I hate my body.

    The strength will definitely bounce back. I agree about cheese, it seems like I can eat so much more of something if it has cheese on it.

    total cals were on that day
    5718 cals
    141.5 F 23%
    451.5 C 33%
    600.0 P 44%

    i should have mentioned above.. i used part fat free cheese and part full fat to keep satty fats under control. the above looks deceptive.. dont eat 28oz of full fat cheese per day lol

    I saw Alex posted these up over on Pro Muscle. Awesome job. He definitely knows his stuff when it comes to getting shredded. From the title of this thread you must not have liked his diet too much?

    Haha thanks Jay. Initially the macro setup was a big adaptation... but once I got used to it, it wasn't a problem. I can say for sure that I enjoy getting fat more than getting lean

    There is so much to say for this. I greatly respect your discipline! And, obviously it paid off.

    Just pick your worst. I wish I could at least manage THAT. You look like I wish I could look. One day maybe

    I like the looks of the macros. Im thinking that macros were my downfall. Too much carbs. in my bulk, then Id also end up with simple carbs in the diet. The extra good carbs were like the explosive and the simple carbs were the ignighter.
