Today is the end of the third week of my bulk. I’m very happy with my gains so far, and I seem to be adding very little fat: as of this morning I’ve added 5.4 pounds. A small Today is the end of the third week of my bulk. I’m very happy with my gains so far, and I seem to be adding very little fat: as of this morning I’ve added 5.4 pounds. A small portion of that weight is fat, but for the most part it’s lean mass. So far I’ve added 1/4″ to my forearms, 1/4″ to my arms, 1.25″ to my quads (I know that sounds crazy, but my legs have always been like that – they grow so fast it’s a little scary), 1/2″ to my calves and 1/2″ to my chest! I think most of these initial gains are due to “muscle memory”: I was a little bigger than I am now at the end of last year’s bulk, but back then I weighed 225 pounds and was around 14% body fat. Right now I’m between 9% and 10% body fat, but my muscle measurements are at, or very near, the measurements taken at the end of last year’s bulk. I expressed some concern to SwoleCat about the amount of fat I added last year while bulking, so he made some adjustments to my diet. It seems that this year’s protocol is right on the money: I’m adding size and gaining weight, but keeping most of the fat off. If this continues, and I expect it will, I’m going to bulk for 4 months this year instead of 3 months.

Reminder: As you probably know, there have been a whole lot of upgrades and changes to the JSF servers over the past week. For the most part everything is running fine, however there are a few lingering issues that I’m still working on. As I resolve these last remaining issues, you may notice periodic outages over the next day or two. These outages should be very brief (lasting no more than 3 or 4 minutes) and will only be done when absolutely necessary. I apologize in advance for any inconvenience.
