Started bulking about 5 weeks ago. As you can see it doesn't take me long to put some body fat on, but my waist is still 33-34 inches. Bulking is hard for me because I used to be so overweight and I am terrified that I 'll end up fat again........
Height : 5'8.5"
Weight :199 lbs.
Enormous arms! What is your goal for the bulk?
D 435 / S 340 / B 305

oh my god. your arms are HUGE. lookin really big man, good work.
Been out the game for a little while, but jumpin back in
you look diesel man!
The Iron never lies to you. You can walk outside and listen to all kinds of talk, get told you're a god or a total bastard. The Iron will always kick you the real deal. The Iron is the great reference point, the all-knowing perspective giver. Always there like a beacon in the pitch black. I have found the Iron to be a good friend. It never freaks out on me, never runs. Friends may come and go. But two hundred pounds is always two hundred pounds.
I have short arms and am not that tall to begin with so I look bigger than what I am. I haven't measured in a couple weeks, but I think my stats are as follows:
Chest : 47.5"
Arms : left-17", right-16 3/4"
legs : lagging of course but I am working on them (lol)
Oh, and my goal is maybe 210-215 while keeping my waist at 34" or below. Which is getting hard to do now. I was goign to cut for the summer, but due to work I won't be going to the beach with my family this year so I figure I might as well keep on bulking.
Thanks man. And I always thought of my lats as a weak point. My middle traps area (??) is lacking a bit also as far as thickness goes. I want that 3-dimensional look to my back.
Looking good man! Arms look great!
Facially you look like a clone of this guy I know. He can't be much more than 90lbs though. Always wondered what he'd look like big.
Havin' a lil' fat trim.
lol at 90 lbs. I don't think I have been 90 lbs. since I was in the 2nd grade. haha. Thanks for the comments. Now if I can just get my legs up to par.
nice job man, arms are jacked.
2000 or bust
Dude your huge! You dont live in tennessee do you, bc you look like someone i see every other day in the gym.
Where abouts in TN, and what is name of the gym?
I envy your arms man! Hey it looks like you got some good size on you. You should try and do some shoulder shrugs so it does'nt appear that your neck is small. You look great man!
Fighters are teh bomb -Getfit
Test is test is test is test. It'll all bloat you the same! -BCC
Looking pretty good. Arms are huge - traps look like a potential weak point although the angle doesn't exactly favour them. It might just be that your arms are so big everything else appears smaller!
huge arms man! they're bigger than your head!
what height are u?
Wow, I'm very impressed! Good luck on your bulk, hope you get nice n huge (in the nice muscular way).
Thanks again for all the comments. Yes my traps are a weak spot. I just started doing power shrugs, and I think I may start doing Hise shrugs also. I do have some traps from the heavy deadlifts, but the traps aren't near what I want them to be.
Dyersburg, TN at Ultimate Fitness.
impressive. Better pics would help. How long have you been lifting?
Dyersburg, TN huh? Yepp. That would be me dude. I typically am in the gym 4-5 days a week, but it's always at different times. With a wife and 2 kids it is hard to get in there at the same time every day. I just do what I can - when I can.
I've been lifting off and on for about 5 years now. I have to put my family first so my progress isn't really what it should be for lifting for 5 years, but it's a lot better than nothing at all.
