    My 3 year journey...


    The first pic was when i was about 7 months out of Basic Training early 2006, weighed about 145 in my uniform. The second was sometime in the early spring of 2007, about 160lbs. The third pic was New Years eve 2008, weighed about 175lb. The fourth was September of 08 around 185. And the last couple were pretty recent a couple months back, weighing around 210-215 in those shots, currently sittin just under 220 as of this morning.

    im sure he's used creatine, which is comparable to other staples such as fish oil

    PH's are a whole different story

    Yeah creatine off and on, normal supports supps, i.e. joint supps, fish oil, protein etc.

    Didnt think i would ever get big for the longest time, ill be 24 this Tuesday. I just kept eating and eating, and finally started to grow.

    Do you do anything on the rest days(abs, cardio) or keep it strictly resting?

    Pretty much just rest, sometimes my physical therapy (sprained shoulders, strained trap, and rehabbing a torn quad) days fall on rest days but they have little impact, replenish my body w/ moderate to high carb, high protein meals. typically in the range of 3500-4200 calories, supplements ~10g of glutamine, 10g of creatine

    Dam you're huge bro nice work. Thats incredible, even for using ph's, I don't think ph's are even THAT useful since in many cases gains are lost. But 3500-4200 cals doesn't even seem like that much for your weight. I'm eating around 3700 and I'm only 183 and slowly gaining.

    im on a maintenance point right now, although i tend to make gains w/ very little caloric increase, since i have some injuries that are somewhat limiting me not to mention i work 12hr shifts, but my diet is extremely clean, no cheating anywhere in it right now, very lean and very spread out

    those cals seem right...
    most people don't need humungous amounts of cals to bulk, unless they are hardgainers...and judging by his pictures, he is not.
    i can lean bulk on 2700-2900

    Here is an example from my food journal last week (i labeled some of the supplement brands i take):

    31Dec

    Meal 1: 12 egg whites, 1 whole wheat bagel, 2 slices of baked ham, 10oz of
    fat free milk
    Meal 2: 8 oz chicken breast, 1 cup brown rice, 1/2 cup chopped broccoli
    Meal 2: 2 scoops EAS 100% Whey, 1/3 cup whole almonds, 1/2 cup
    cranberries
    Meal 3: 4 oz chicken breast, 4 oz 97% lean ground beef mixed w/ 1 cup
    jasmine rice
    Meal 4: cesar salad w/ spinach leaves, olive oil/ balsamic vinegar, 1 serving
    Iso Max Exteme Gainer
    Meal 5: (Post workout) 2 scoops EAS 100% Whey, 10g glutamine, 5g
    Universal Storm, 1/2 cup jasmine rice
    Meal 6: 8oz chicken breast, 1 baked sweet potato w/ cinnamon, 1/2
    cranberry/ strawberry mix
    Meal 7: 6-8oz lean sirloin (cooked rare), 1 cup of rice
    Meal 8: (Snack) 1/2 cup whole almonds, 1/4 cup walnut halves, 1/2 cup
    cranberries
    Meal 9: 1 cup fat free cottage cheese, 2 servings whole grain couscous, 1
    serving mixed veggies.

    All meats were prepared using 1tbs olive oil, 1tsp lemon juice, 1tsp balsamic vinegar, 1 clove (chopped garlic), fresh ground pepper and sea salt, and basil measured to taste.

    Supplements not included were Animal Pak, 10g fish oil, 600mg milk thistle (not on a cycle), RPM and Drive, Purple Wrath, typically Animal Flex but currently out of stock.

    I dont have an official review/log, but it is by FAR my favorite creatine, 80 servings, and only like $30, you cant go wrong in my opinion. I have been taking it for 2 years now, and it has worked wonders. My skin starts feeling tighter after using it for 2-3 weeks.

    Trust me the more you eat the more your metabolism starts to ramp up, and after each meal youre hungry 30 mins later.

    That is a solid review, may have to consider Storm in the future. Thanks for the details on your progress, can't believe you got to where you are in that short a time, very impressive.
