This is the last time I bulked at the peak I was eating over 5000 cals daily about 6 months ago went from 150 to 180lbs in about a year. I tried to cut slow to save some muscle. I never want to get this fat again because It was incredibly difficult to lose that much weight.
Here I am now just maintaining around 148 to 150lbs. 3200 calls a day. Training 4 days week 531
Always been natural. Never been injured except cut my fingertip off at work and then I did smolov squat for 6 weeks (last year)
23yo 5ft 6in 150lbs
Squat max 315lbs
Bench max 260lbs
Can also do 100 push ups 15+pull ups full rom
(Side notes: I was only 120lbs when first started lifting and couldn’t lift much more than 100lbs on anything.
I also feel like I have a pretty stressful life between having 3 kids and working a hard manual labor job the past 6 years, but never miss a workout or a meal. Usually eat at least 6 meals a day. Hopefully i have provided enough info for you guys and not to much. First time post thanks.)
Just trying to figure out what I should work on and improvements my goal is just to just keep getting stronger and stay on track in life. And sometimes I just doubt my progress. I have really have put a lot of effort into this. Training has become my lifestyle but I still see a lot of people making a lot more progress than me.
At some point in my life I just want to squat 405lbs bench 315 and deadlift 500 all for reps. And without getting as fat as I was when I weighed 180lbs which maybe that is not possible for me while staying below like 20 percent Body fat.
