Size 38 Levis? Try 34 bro.
Keep up the great work man, you've made a pretty big difference in 3 months. You're gonna want to throw in some middle delt work though. Cable side-lateral-raises are good. Bench and rows have your front/rear delts covered, but you don't have much in terms of middle-delt work and it'll limit your growth and mess around your shoulder posture if you don't hit them a bit here and there.
You'll find the next period of fat loss will be a series of stalls and splurts. You'll lose nothing/gain a little weight in the next few weeks as muscle growth balances or exceeds fat loss but then this will flip and you'll find yourself suddenly losing double digits of lbs for a few weeks in fat as the muscle beings eating it up (Just like Easy said before).
Keep it up though.

search here. You can also look in to DC training which I hear is pretty good. But the main thing is to forget isolation work and build a strong foundation. Everything else will fall into place. Squats, deadlifts, bench, dips, rows and chins. These are your friends.

And if neutral grip chins are something you can't do at the moment and you don't have an assisted chinnie machine at your gym, just go for high weight lat pulldowns. You'll be doing chinnies with the best of us in no time.

I recently drifted back up to 34s being snug and no more 32s in the process of bulking from 200-230, but already back down at 225 the 34s are getting loose. and some 32s just about are back to fitting. snugly of course.

Just remember dude bulking doesn't = eating like ****!
Keep your food clean when you're looking to increase your LBM.
Great work so far.

Right now I'm at 235 and my arms and legs feel dense. However I still have love handles and belly fat. I need to get a tripod so I can take some pics of my back and a couple of poses.

Awesome work dude!
Remember that you can either be building muscle or losing a lot of fat. I'd say you're probably at the cusp of wanting to put on some muscle now rather than just smashing fat, so in that case don't be afraid to be carrying a little podge around the mid-section. Once you're happy with the amount of muscle you've built you can start cutting and losing fat then.

Started bulking two days ago. Eating like crazy right now. The goal is to bulk up for 60 days then cut till summer shows up.

still at it. i've backed off the calorie restriction lately however I'm still hitting the gym at least 3x per week. Started running. I'll post some pics soon.

OK after letting my eating habits get all out of whack I took a picture yesterday and all I can say is ****. OK starting to log again and post pics every two weeks.
