    My trip from life long fat ass to muscle bound guy






    Dont know how good this will be but here goes started sept 28, 2010 at 279lbs today I just went 191. Doing back today and bi sat off. Eating 2300-2600 cal per day maint is 2900. Going on a 30 day bulk 3400-3600 cal 20/45/35 starting Monday. May not update a lot but will answer comments. Can't wait for Sunday normally workout alone but am meeting a bud to do chest so I can get a good spot hope to set a new pr for flat bench dumbbell. Eighty is the most I've done do far 6-7 reps.

    Just a thought. But if u don't have a spotter u could always switch up to.dumbbells. that's all I mainly use. I have a bad shoulder so most barbell exercises hurt.

    Ok started eating more today 3400-3500 cal goal 20/45/35. Well I've been under 200g carbs most days today I was at 250g when I hit gym did chest today. Started with flat bench dumbbells got 85lbers for 9 reps previous best was 80. Think I could have got 90 especially since my 2nd set with 85 was stronger than first set. Also did incline, wide hammer strength machine, ez bar pull overs, then dips wide grip and narrow and finished with 6 sets of cable tri moves with a couple super sets. Chest and arms feel tight. Look forward to the next 30days of eating big I hope to gain some muscle/strength if it is going good I might go longer on bulk just have to see.

    No pics will take some when I feel better about way I look. Ate 3326 cals yesterday 77-fat 365-carb 298-protien. All pretty clean. Should add up to gaining 1lb per week according to food program I'm using.

    I'm the same... my hubby always says 'take pic's before we start cutting' and we never do... then when we are lean, we pretty much slap ourselves up side the head and wonder why we didn't do the 'before' pics..

    Will follow along.. what's your ultimate goal? How long is your bulk going to be for?

    ultimate goal is to have a reasonable level of bf. and be much bigger than average. big enough to get respect and be noticed. if i had bf of 12-16 percent i would probably be happy. considering all of my life till recently it has probably been over 30%. im 5'8" 191 right now around 20% bf. probably bulk for 30 days just because i've below maintence for so long a change will do me good and make it easer to lose when i go back to a cut.

    Today was quads only. Started with squats got educated on proper form and going down in the bucket boy 180 feels much heavier when ur that low. Concentrated on form today weight will come. Did 7 sets 10-15 rep range then did sitting leg press went light 4 plates per side but used full range of motion going as deep as I could. One if the better quad days I've had. Gym is upstairs was worried my legs were going to give out on way down.
    I don't know if the fact my carbs have been high has anything to do with this but I've been stronger than normal this week.

    Did shoulders today 3 overhead moves and 3 different raises. Plus shrugs. Went up in weight on barbell overhead press added 10lbs over what I had been doing. Good week so far I've been stronger every day thinking it maybe due to increase in carbs. got to stay away from scale so any weight gain doesn't freak me out.

    I know the feeling man. Any weight gain freaks me out after a while even when I'm trying to gain weight. I've been thru a similar situation as you, mine was even worse off than yours was. I was like 300+ and now I"m down to mid 170s. Keep up the hard work brother.

    It's not as easy as you would think to eat that much. Adding 1000 clean calories a day is tough, but I feel better didn't realize that I was being effected by low carbs till I started eating more carbs. I look forward to the day I can just maintain a good size on a reasonable amount if food. Even though I believe I will probably always be on either a cut or a bulk.

    Well Sunday evening and my hams are sore as hell calfs are little sore guess separating quads and hams/calfs to different days was a good idea. Two days of rest will hit chest Monday afternoon. Plus step on that dam scale.

    Did chest and tri's good workout not as strong as last week but still ok. Hit the scale at 194 that's +3lbs at 500 above maint. Part of that is water and rest real gain. 3 more weeks then major cal cut and throwing cardio back in.
