So I started this cycle at 195 and a 32" waist (at the belly button, relaxed). Now I'm nearly 12 weeks in and I'm at 230, but my waist was 34" this week. I can still see abs pretty well, so is it possible for the abs and lower back to grow at this rate, or am I just a fatass now?
Idk why I made this thread, but I was all psyched about how well this cycle has gone, and then I measure everything and now I'm on the edge of going anorexic/bulemic because I can't tell if I'm swole or just fat from eating 4500 cals for 3 months.
Moral of the story...don't get too excited over numbers skyrocketing in the weight room because there's a good chance that they're skyrocketing in other areas too.
stupid bulking theory.
