    Losing fat and waistline expanding

    Weird as hell... two weeks ago I had a 34 inch waist with a superiallic fold measurement of 12 mm. Now it's 34.5, is noticable in a shirt, and 10 mm. The entire ab area is hard as a rock.. a lot more firm than it's ever been. There's barely any fat to grab onto (compared to a few weeks ago). I haven't gained any weight but I have incorporated a lot of 1 rm based lifting principles, especially core hitting like DL, and thrown in some low rep intense ab work once a week and am theoretically running at a slight caloric surplus. My girlfriend has begun teasing that most guys get beer bellies not muscle bellies.

    Endo genetics barrel shape reasserting itself? I don't mind much as long as I'm not gaining much fat and putting weight on the bar but I admit I did like not looking like a fatass for once in my life.

    Maybe you're bloated.

    As an aside, by 'insane genetics' do people mean 100% meso?

    That was my first (second, third, fourth, and 10th) thought... I blow up like a blimp because of my digestive problems, after all. It's just been really consistant and not accompanied by the feeling I associate with being bloated.

    Steele: Yep. 100% meso genetics would be sweet. I'm textbook endo... short stubby fingers, wide stocky waist even at average body fat, stumpy legs, broad shoulders. If I bulk 5 pounds I expect 4 to be fat no matter how clean I eat.

    Considering you are my weight and body fat and likely 4 to 12 inches taller you aren't pure endo.
