LOL at “creatine bloat”. Anyone telling you to cut right now has their head up their ass. This isn’t about whether you “looked better” when you were lighter. It is about what your long term goal is and whether what you are doing will help you reach it. Keep eating and lifting and hit us back in another 20lbs.
Oops, I mean 50lbs.
Just making sure I look like I am bulking correctly and how I should look after a little under 2 months of “clean bulking”. I have no desire to cut until maybe a year or more of this.
Dude, two months isn’t enough time for ANYONE to be making any judgments…which is why your comments about how lean you look right now only show how little you actually know and possibly your fear of gaining much body weight to begin with.
Yes, there are guys like “kingbeef” on this site who can gain 50lbs yet look like they are one month of dieting away from competition. Most people are not going to experience that though.
I have ok genetics for growth, yet if I had tried to remain under 10% body fat the entire way through, I would probably still be stuck around 200lbs or less.
I do not care about lean ness for the time being, I just wanted to see if I was putting on any muscle or not
…and once again 2 months is not enough time for us to see much change in pictures.
Let me make this clear for you…in pictures, the only way changes will be visible in that short a time frame is if you gained in excess of 10-15lbs of muscle (more-so around 20lbs) or lost significant body fat. fat loss shows much more quickly in pictures than muscle gain unless that gain was very substantial. Your two month time frame isn’t long enough to be judging progress by pictures. You should be relying more on whether your strength is going up, whether your sleeves fit tighter, or whether you get remarks from others who haven;t seen you in a while but are also into weight lifting.
I can gain 10lbs of muscle but unless someone has a very sharp eye, they likely won’t notice that gain in a picture unless I also lost significant body fat along with it.
