    Impressive! Great conditioning, low bodyfat. Proportions look good, but could use a bit more size on chest and traps compared to everything else -- same exact things that I am currently working on. Great progress thus far!

    I think you're much less than 10% BF to be honest. I could be VERY wrong though, but with all those veins, plus the well defined abs, I'da guessed about 8% or less. Again, I'm just guessing wildly though!

    Eating. Thats it. I know how much people and prolly yourself stress this factor. Its all in the food man,it might just be cuz its easier than hell for me to bulk,but its all in the food. For instance when im bulking,for my carb source i might just eat Sweet Potatos,and some rice,and its not really that i try to "Clean Bulk",i just ****ing bulk bro,if its more of a clean bulk so be it,i think people stress too much on that,they try to make sure there "Clean Bulking",so hard that they deprive thereselves of what they really need for a Bulk. If i feel i have to eat sloppy and not clean at all for a successful bulk,i just do extra cardio. I dont know,it always works out for me. I also eat 6-7 meals a day when bulking. Usually my daily meals will consist of beans,fish,fruits,vegetables,w hole grains,some type of lean meat, and low fat dairy product. You just really have to stuff your face,even when you dont feel hungry,still get those 6 meals in at least. Like i said,this just works for me,everybodys different,but it really bulks me the **** up.

    I can see the improvements from the avatar. Put on some good weight in the chest and shoulders. Youre waaaay under 10% garunteed. I feel that your tris need to build to even the arm. Bringing your traps and shoulders up would do big tings for your back physique. Good vascularity, especially that power vein! Garden hose status. All said and done a quality improvement.

    He's secretly take tren



    But seriously though (from seeing those pics your gym took) 350 is good for your size, you're not small it's just that you don't look like a hunched over benchpress hero

    no, he is def not taking tren... lol hes a D1 wrestler (lock haven)

    thank you ( i guess that was a compliment? ) lol... most people who have big benches are stocky for their frame.... ie, thick torso and short compact arms...

    i have monkey arms... hence the big deadlift
