    One Year and Fifty Pounds Later


    See if you can figure out which one is the before pic. I started off at 142 pounds around 7% bodyfat. I'm currently 188 pounds around 9% bodyfat. Four months ago, I got up to 192 pounds at about 13%, then I cut down to around 170 at 7% --- I lost a ****load of muscle in the process, due to a combination of getting sick (can't help that) and low-carbing it (never again).

    All of my bodyfat measurements were done with a pair of accumeasure one site calipers. They are relatively precise, but I think they put me about 2% below where I really am.

    By this time next year, I intend to be well over 200 pounds. My own evaluation is that I still need to focus on general mass, but criticism to the contrary is welcome.

    Good job man.

    Hope you hit that 200lb goal. That's what I'm shooting for before my cut in Feb/March.

When I look in the mirror, my brain sees the exact same thing it saw 1 year back.

    If it wasn't for measurements, I would have gone nuts looong ago.

    Thanks bioman; although if I had a proper wheels shot, you'd note that I'm a bit bottom heavy. 14.75 inch arms and 18 inch calves! Guess who's got the runner's DNA?

    You may want to assume your BF around 12% though--but I think you already addressed this issue.

    Overall mass is a good goal. You've kept pretty lean, so I wouldn't worry about leaning out just yet.

    Well, first of all, I really only put on 46 pounds --- fifty is rounding up.

    Second, I definitely didn't put on 46 pounds of muscle. I'd say about 8 of those pounds resulted from proper hydration for the first time in my life, coupled with carrying around a far greater quantity of food in my gut than previously. I'd also wager that another 8 or so pounds were fat.

    So, all told, we're looking at about 30 lean pounds in a year. This reconciles well with my arm measurements, which have gone from a little under twelve inches to a little under fifteen inches.

    Definitely atypical progress for the average lifter, but the average lifter isn't a newb.
