Stats: 6'1" @ 183 lbs
BodyFat: I estimated 13%-14% bf (I really have no idea but from pictures posted on AM, people estimated 12-14%)
Body Type: Ecto (66%) / Meso (33%) - very thin growing up but have forced myself to gain muscle
Goals: Get bigger and stay lean enough
Goals Specific for this product cycle: Gain serious size and strength. I'm not too concerned with fat gain for 2 months. Also, to see if the Osteo-C can help with my shoulder pain. Nothing else has seemed to help and it tends to get worse when I'm on creatine or gain any weight.
Medical issues: none
Past Supplements: Some experience - multivitamin, creatine, whey protein, fish oils, , Drive, , Leviathan.
Current: Multi, Whey, omega3, BCAA
Diet: My goal is to take in 2800-3000 calories a day. My estimated "maintenance" is around 2200 b/c I have an office job.
Workout: Typically a 3 or 4 day split - chest/tris, back/bis, legs/shoulders, 4thday misc (more leg, abs, etc.)
Cardio: Will likely be minimal during this short bulk. Maybe 20 minutes 2x a week and/or a hike on the weekend, weather permitting.
Other: I'm just a regular guy but with good intensity and a good diet. I don't like to mix too many things b/c I like to see how certain supps affect me by themselves so I know what to buy again. I think this will be a good "real world" test for those people who are new to supps or for those who aren't looking to spend $300 a month to stack many items.

Pictures on Day 1 - Yes I flexed - I figure as long as I do the same pose for my after pics, it is fair
