At the moment i'm running SD at 30 a day for 3 wks over lapped into Epi at 30 for 4 weeks for a 6 week cycle.
Calories are around 2500 - 250g protein - 250g carbs - 60g fat.
I've put some girth around my waiste but my back has all but exploded in size, my pecs not so much. Any help would be great... I've been a thread stalker for a while now and a rare poster ... so be gentle.

Actually I just started looking into DC training and I plan to switch to it after my cycle ... How much more would you consider I eat ... I'm already turning into a great big fat ass.

doesnt matter. just eat high protein, high carbs. DC is very legit. make sure ur on your BCAAs, Protein, (other staples). if you need suggestions on those holla at me

No i'm not set into what I eat at all - I normally eat about 1900 calories a day but I have not been gaining any size at all so I upped it to 2500 for 4 months and I have gotten alot bigger and alot stronger - but also i'm gaining fat like crazy as well, abs are completely gone and I have a ton of back fat now. So I'm not to worried about it I just want to make sure that I'm gaining proper strength with all this fat so when i cut I'm not back to where I was before I upped my caloires.

take a look at your macro breakdown
2500 cals doesn't seem like a lot. have you calculated your BMR correctly?
just be sure that you're consistently adding weight to the bar

2500 and you weigh 189lbs i calculated that my body needs 4000 odd calories if i want to gain i know that everyone is different but i stuck to the general rules done the math and that what i got so if it works for the majority it should work for me im also about 5,8. I know i can push the boat out to 178lbs before i see significant definition loss in my abs.
