I am around 6 feet tall, 240lbs.I gained about 10 pounds. BF probably went up to about 18-20 % Waist size went up by a little under 2 inches, some days it’s 39" others it is 40". My chest/back went from a weak 43-44" to a solid 45inches. My arms went from 16 and a half/16 and three quarters to 17 and a quarter/17 and a half.
I feel as though I have gained more, when I look in the mirror I feel as if I have gained more. But the tape says differently.
I have had a little prob with diet, I still have a weakness for chocolates and ice creams. There are women in my Department who insist on bringing choclate in all the time. I can hear it call to me in my office “Come eat me”. Sweets are my weakness!! I consume as much protein as possible by using a lot of powder.
I went from struggling with 205 on the bench to pressing 280 for 1 full and 3 partials. I am alot stronger than 6 months ago. I have had a few set backs in this half year though such as back probs and that set me back about 3-4 weeks. Back issues also limit your ability to do leg work, so my legs have sufferred throughout this last six months.
I started the year out not sticking with a program so maybe that is a factor. I have been using my current program for about a month. it is as follows:
I add five pounds each week to my bench.
Is my waist size and BF% telling me it is time to cut some fat and I may see results or should I keep on keepin on?
