    I am going to do this quick and dirty. I am just going to post the increase in weight since starting the cycle

    Chest
    bench press-20 pounds
    incline bench presss- 15
    incline dumbell press- 20 pounds (per dumbell)

    Biceps
    barbell curls-20 pounds (I think I could have done more but the pre-made barbells only went up to 110)
    dumbell curls -10 pounds (?!?!??)

    And will update the rest later tonight or tomorrow as I just realized I am late to meet someone. OOOPs

    I am finally starting to taper off on the weight gain. I have sat at 207 for the last 3 days. I was starting to wonder when that would happen. Tomorrow will be the end of the 2 week. I cant wait for the strength gains from the test. I still have several more weeks for that to happen.

    Lookin good face. What other support supplements are you taking? This could lead to the eating portion. I havent pinned or taking hormones, but when i get in the groove of a cut then a bulk the same thing happens to me. If supps arent the problem, its problaby ur body used to the old eating habits. Try mixing some stuff up.

    I am taking creatine, milk thistle, and waxy maize. I bought some iso mass gainer. Just so if I am coming up short on my calories a day I can drink some of that to ensure that I get that # of calories a day. I think it is probably that I cut for so long that my body is not used to consuming that much a day.

    You pics looked decent, but you have yet to reach your full growth potential without the cycle. So why juice so early. Don't get me wrong not trying to judge your actions, but IMO, you could have easily went another +2 years with a solid bulk & cutting cycle prior to even touching a cycle.

    However, you have started it, and I wish you the best of luck. As you may or may not know, the cycle on works with a solid post-gym plan. Make sure your clean food intake is up, and be you study/ and develop a post cycle plan. Many people come off the cycle and lose everything, due to them not cycling off properly, so they immediately do another cycle (which is bad IMO, unless they are competing)

    Also, I see in your meal plan your carbs are WAY TOO LOW. Bump them up tremendously bro.

    I think faceman has a good base, low body fat. All about what you want at that point in the game.

    tomorrow is my last day of d-bol. :-( So I will be starting into the 5th week tomorrow. I am still looking forward to the bread and butter of this cycle to kick in its strength gains. Although I the strenght gains have been great so far. I am still at 210 pounds. Will get my bf% checked tomorrow.
    Last week I traveled back to arkansas to visit for a week. So my diet was not like it normally is. I mean I still ate good but was not able to get as much of my protein from chicken breast and was not able to eat complex carbs all the time.
    Was still able to work out.
    Although my parents were like, "i think all the weight you lost left your waist on went to your face". ( water retention ) ;-) Ha ha . Oh well

    Are you saying yoru 8.9% BF in these photos? you got a good base but those pics look around 15% to me most people have a clearly defined 6 pack at right around 10% Not trying to knock you and wish you the best of luck just an honest critique

    10-11 % is still not bad though at all !!!...Go by the mirror more than anything I have had friends that could get checked with calipers be 9% but they looked like 12%.

    BF test are IMO just to make sure your on the right track...To me the mirror is a much better method to follow....Great progress man.

    Id say about 12% in those first pics{but he could be lower}.Caliper test alot of times are not dependable due to the person doing them....However some people store more fat in there mid section and not so much elsewhere so they very much could be at a lower bofyfat and not look it.

    I like to check the bf% just as a physical measurement of progress. I am an engineer by trade and we always have to have a stated path to measure success. So I guess that I am the same way in regards to this. My mid section is the absolute last place to loose fat and first place to put it on.
    On another note on this cycle I can tell the most strength gain on my back days. And my back has definitely widened out.

    Yeah, Id say 12-13% no more. Thats bad lighting in those pics, and he looks as though he doesnt have thick abs that "pop" out, so he will have to get down pretty low to see the abs.

    Anyone remember the wrestler Buff Bagwell? That guy held his fat equally all over and had abs that just stuck out through his fat. I bet he was 12-13% bf and you could see all his abs. Some people are just lucky.

    here is a question. If you retain water would that fall under your lean mass or fat mass in a bf% test?
    I finally started to take the adex. I wanted to hold off until I thought the bloating was getting significant. Well after 3 days I dropped from 210 to 207.

    sorry I could not get the same exact pose and position of the camera. I did not have anyone to actually take the picture. So I had to sit on something at run and jump in front of the camera.

    Its hard to tell from the pics but my back has really widened out. That is really where I have had the most strength gains.
    And my triceps gain size pretty well but my biceps always progress pretty slowly. (slower than I would like for them to. )





    And man I dont go to tan for a week and a half and go back and get burnt. WTF?
