Ok, so a while ago I decided to bulk and quit dicking around with just dreaming about being solid.
Now, this has been an extended bulk, probably more slow than others, but it seems to have done the job. I'd still like to add another 15 lbs or so before I level off an maintenance and hold for a while.
I'm 5'11, 23 yrs old.
Starting: 173 lbs, 155.181 lbs LBM
Today: 196 lbs, 173.26 lbs LBM
Now I know that those numbers are not precise, but I trust them enough to track my changes because I took them under the same conditions.
So according to my scale I gained 18.079 lbs of LBM and 4.917 lbs of fat.
Ok, so I could have done without the inch on my waist, but that was inevitable.
But damn, it's been tough to add the last few lbs. I've been eating 4500 cals a day and it's difficult to get that many in when they're mostly clean.
Would appreciate any advice or comments that you have.
