I’ve got a huge update today, and lots to cover. Let’s jump right into it!

I took my monthly progress pictures this morning, and I’m pretty pleased with the progress I’ve made so far on this bulk. Over the past two months I’ve made noticeable improvements to all my muscle groups, and my fat gains have been far less than any of my previous bulks.

Over the past two months I’ve added a total of 15.8 pounds, of which 11.4 pounds is lean mass. That’s only a 4.4 pound fat gain (for more detailed stats, check yesterday’s update).

I thought it would be interesting to compare my 2008 bulk starting picture to this morning’s pictures.

The face-on shots show an overall increase in size and some nice growth on my quads, lats, chest and shoulders – even my stubborn traps have shown some improvement (but need a lot more!) The two inches I’ve added to my chest over the past couple of months are very apparent in the profile photos; this is something I’m extremely happy about because my chest was looking pretty weak. The profile photos also shows some nice delt, arm and hamstring improvement:

I feel that this has been my most successful bulk yet, and I’m going to work my butt off for the final four weeks and finish very strong. If I can hang on to the mass I’ve added (and the mass I will pack on this month) while I’m getting my six-pack dialed-in on my upcoming cut, I believe that I will attatin my most balanced and aesthetic physique yet.

I’ve got a very exciting announcement this morning! Over the past few weeks I’ve made mention that JSF has a new sponsor coming aboard. This gentleman needs no introduction to many of you, as he’s been on the JSF forums helping people for years. I’m, of course, talking about Aram “Mastover” Hamparian!

As many of you know, I’ve already had the honor and privilege of working with Aram several times. In fact, it was under Aram’s wing that I achieved what was by far the best physique of my life. You may recall that my 2006 bulk was successful in many ways, but I also ballooned up to 236 pounds and 19% body fat. The first time I worked with Aram was my post-bulk 2007 cutting phase. My goal on that cut was to reduce my body fat from 19% to 6% while preserving as much lean mass as possible. Six months and 50 pounds later I reached that goal. Aram was the mastermind behind the diet and training program that allowed me to make this transformation:

January 1, 2007: 236 pounds, 19% body fat

July 1, 2007: 186.6 Pounds, 6% body fat

Aram is a USBF & NBI Professional Natural bodybuilder with over 25 years experience. His depth of knowledge and vast experience are only exceeded by his humility. Over the years our trainer/client relationship has evolved into a genuine friendship and a very strong mutual respect. I can tell you from firsthand experience that when you work with Aram you can count on friendly, knowledgeable and professional assistance without any attitude or “chest pounding” – you have my word on that. I endorse Aram and his training services completely, wholeheartedly and without any caveats. Want to lose fat, pack on muscle, get ready for a bodybuilding contest or undergo a complete body recomposition? If you are willing to work hard, Aram will get you there. Aram has the knowledge and experience to help anyone from total beginner to seasoned veteran reach his or her physique and/or health goals. Each person’s program is 100% custom and unique to that individual and his or her goals, and you will receive the personal attention that you deserve. I know who I’ll be hiring for my next cut!

Aram’s rates are already extremely low, but during the entire month of December he’s discounted those rates by 15%! Please check out his web site at www.mastover.com for details on all his services.

I’ve placed the Official “Personal Training with Aram Hamparian” Review and Discussion thread in the Fat Loss forum, so please feel free to drop in and join me in welcoming Aram aboard as an Official JSF Sponsor!
