i just got a copy of kelsos shrug book and there are a lot of really nifty movements in there. i will probably end up doing something like

The drawing of the guy on the cover of kelsos shrug book is so disproportionate it makes me uncomfortable.

Did you deload to lower than 50% in the first place, or is that just where you are at now?

50% deload at 195 5x5? So you're squatting almost 405 for a 1RM? Then I'm very jealous.

Bah meant 60%. 325 Max. 400+ squat is my goal for my next meet. I have to find one first, I'll be traveling during a local one in March frown.gif

Nah, just took a week of a standard 5/3/1 deload of 60% on all my lifts. Then decided to do 5 x 5 with it.

Ah gotcha, was thinking of doing a deload myself, but with a month left of bulk does not make sense, should have thought about it earlier

Looks like i'll end up between 210-215, started at 180 last February 2012, with a couple of indecisive bouts here and there. So pretty much put on 30-35lbs in my first year of lifting.

If after my cut I retain 18-20lbs of muscle i'll be happy for the time being.

At this point I think my body is so accustomed to being a fat fuck, that i'm experiencing diminishing returns on my gains, though I definitely AM still getting stronger, it's coming at a slower pace than even 2-3 months ago.

In hindsight, I definitely got ahead of myself on this bulk, and a lot of folks here advised me against that; but I did it anyway, and i'm glad I did to be honest. I could have been smarter and ate at a 500 surplus and done a very slow controlled bulk, but I don't think I would have learned half as much, nor would it be as much fun.

My goal weight is to get back down to 180ish, and see how I look. Going to be very interesting.

Also, call me a phaggot but I really miss having a defined face + jaw line haha, i'm almost more excited about that then the idea of potentially having a 6 pack or whatever.

Talking about 6 pack, first place I gained weight was my stomach, then face, have a feeling that the fat deposits everywhere else will go relatively quickly, but stomach and face will be stubborn as shit. It's weird cause my shoulders/chest/traps/forearms are still pretty lean, but stomach, ass and thighs are thick as fuck. Like looking at this picture you'd never think I was as fat as I am.

And for shits and giggles what I pretty much looked like pre-bulk after lifting for a few months and losing the skinny fat look

How did you size?

My knees measure 16.5" at the mid patella (widest point).
