Measurement Sunday!

It’s time for my usual Sunday tape measurements and body fat reading.

My scale weight this morning is 214.4 pounds. That’s just a .4 pound gain over the past week, but you may recall that for some reason last Sunday I was holding about 2 pounds of water for some odd reason. So that’s a 3 pound gain in two weeks, which is right on my average. It all evens out.

My total scale weight gain on this bulk (after 13 of 17 weeks) is 19.4 pounds. That’s an average weekly gain of 1.49 pounds. By comparison, thirteen weeks into my 2006 bulk I’d gained a total of 30.6 pounds, which is an average weight gain of 2.35 pounds per week.

My body fat reading this morning is 13.1% (as measured by the Fat Track PRO Digital Body Fat Calipers). That’s identical to last week’s reading. Looks like I survived the holidays pretty well. I didn’t deprive myself, but I limited my cheat foods to Christmas day and I didn’t go crazy.

This week’s tape measurements (as measured by the MyoTape) are all slightly higher than last week’s readings, but I didn’t gain a full quarter of an inch anywhere. That’s actually not surprising because last week I added a quarter of an inch to every single body part except calves. There were improvements this past week, but I always round down to the nearest quarter of an inch for my official stats. The good news is my waist measurement didn’t change over the holidays!

Total measurement progress thirteen weeks into my bulk is as follows: I’ve added over an inch to my forearms, over 1.75 inches to my arms, over 2.25 inches to my quads, one inch to my calves and over 2.25 inches to my chest. My waist size has increased just over one inch over the past thirteen weeks.

The stats I’ve presented today would have been my ending bulk stats had I not elected to extend my bulk by four weeks. Everything from here on out will be a nice “bonus”!

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