DesktopWeb FormText   brawn : bulking month overSun, 24 Aug 2008 19:36:37 GMT # 

hit 225, so i added 5 lbs. bodyweight had been bouncing all around, but its been a constant climb this last week. i take that to mean that i'm back into an anabolic state (which was the goal). bodyfat has bumped back up to around 15%. that means i probably added a couple pounds of muscle and a couple pounds of fat. probably have some stored glycogen and water weight too. measurements seem to agree with this. thighs are up an inch and arms are up a 1/2 inch. on the other hand, waist is a 1/2 inch bigger and belly is an inch bigger. at least strength is up too, mainly in my legs. workouts have been great since i've had alot more carbs to power them. was able to handle 10 to 12 reps much easier with a caloric surplus.

now i've got a week at maintenance calories (3000). then the plan is to go back to a caloric reduction (2500) for 2 to 3 months. in that time the goal will be to get down to 10% bodyfat. estimating that my bodyweight will have to be 210 to meet that goal. supposedly, if i'm at 10% bodyfat, then it'll be easier to put on a higher percentage of lean muscle mass for the next bulking phase.
