A lil bulking update:
Weighted myself for the first time since I started this bulk 6 weeks ago. Up 5 lbs so far. I've got visible lower ab veins some days when I'm not bloated so maybe I'm still sub 10% bf? I don't look much fatter but I'm def bigger.
Either way, lifts are going up. Set a Squat PR today for 2 sets of 5 and thought it wasn't hard enough, so I did my first 20 rep set afterwards. Very low weight but it'll help me dial in my form at the very least.
While all lower body lifts are going up quickly, I'm struggling with the pressing. Bee pressing roughly the same weights for some time now. Thinking it has to do with my form, since the other lifts are increasing. Or is it common that upper body progress is slower?
Stronglifts suggests weighted pull-ups use similar muscles as the press and should help a lot. It did for me.
