Weekly measurements; Big day tomorrow!

It’s Sunday, and time to take my weekly tape measurements and body fat reading…

My scale weight this morning is 210.8 pounds. That’s a 2.4 pound gain over the past week. A 2.4 pound gain in one week may seem high, but it’s an artificially inflated weight thanks to the water weight from the Thanksgiving day feast. I expect my weight to drop another pound or two over the next couple of days.

Nine weeks of this year’s thirteen week bulk are in the books, and so far I’ve gained a total of 15.8 pounds for an average weekly gain of 1.76 pounds.

My body fat reading this morning is 13.0% (as measured by the Fat Track PRO Digital Body Fat Calipers). That’s pretty much the same as last week’s 12.9% reading. Considering that I started my bulk at 11.8% body fat, 13.0% after nine weeks is not bad. I’m very pleased with the relatively small amount of fat I’ve gained so far – certainly much better than my 2006 bulk!

This week’s tape measurements (as measured by the MyoTape) indicate a good amount of growth in several areas. This week my quads, forearms and arms are all up a quarter of an inch. I almost added a quarter inch to my chest, but it was just shy of the mark. I was a little disappointed about that. For once my hips measurement didn’t increase, but my waist is up a quarter of an inch. I blame Thanksgiving.

So, here’s my overall measurement progress report: over the past nine weeks I’ve added three quarters of an inch to my forearms, just under 1.5 inches to my arms, 1.75 inches to my quads, a half inch to my calves and just shy of 2 inches to my chest.

All my stats, past and present, can always be found on the stats page.

Tomorrow’s going to be a big day around here! I’ll be posting my monthly progress pictures and we’ve got a new sponsor starting! I know you all are going to really like this new sponsor. Also, don’t forget that today is your last day to register for December’s “100 Challenge”! Details are immediately below…
