I am going to the beach next week, so there should be a good picture of how some cutting worked out for me...
Lol, ah the typical 'beer chug' pose!
I posted in this last Feb, but it seems to be gone.
Currently still 45 yrs old, still 5'9" . Weight is up to about 214 (just got back from a Carribean cruise), bf about 16%. Arms 18.75. Also, bench is doing well again, got 360x1 two months ago & 325x7 this week. I don't do 1RM often so my 1RM could be more also I am starting the 5's this coming Monday.
PS, we need to see more pics from those that post in this thread over in the Pictures Everyone thread.

The beer bong pose is great! I should do another one this April!

Started my cut 3 weeks ago and came off the Creatine Monohydrate.

I'm guessing at the bodyfat haven't had any tests done. Top 4 abs are still visible, most of fat covers lower abs and back.

Wow, Icars, you just set some good goals for me, excepting for the shrugs. We're the same weight (I'm fatter tho) and I think, height, 5/11.

Once again an update:
It's now april 10 and I'm 240 put the last 10 on in the last 27 days so I'm not sure of the muscle fat/ ratio of the gain , but I look pretty "swole" if I do say so myself and strength is accelerating more rapidly.
So to recap: I've gained 15lbs total since feb. 1rst.(69 days).
I started in September 2006
BF 24% (according to a scale not sure how accurate it is)
Didn't have measurements back then too bad would have liked to have seen the difference.
BF 19% (according to the same scale not sure how accurate it is)
But My shirts did get a little tighter and my pants got a lot looser!!
Here are my measurements:
My arms however are a piddly 15" (Flexed).
This is also assuming that I measured everything properly...
Ultimate Goal: 10% BF by my birthday (Aug 24).
But I will be happy if I get to 10-14ish.
I`m small and weak...but I like ponies, so that makes me ok, no?
5'9" at about 165 lbs with ~13% bf. Hoping to get to 175 lbs with a lower bf%
6´4" 192 lbs 11% body fat 32 years old
waist (navel) 33.5"
Bicep flexed 14.6"
forearm flexed 12.2"
I got a lot of trouble gaining muscle, i had earn some the last year, but thru a lot of effort. I think my arms are too thin comparing to my back width and shulder wideness.
My legs has allways been my worst point with the arms (they never want to grow)
Hey all, I'm 25 yrs. old and I'm a Spc. In the National Guard, currently deployed to Iraq. I am 5"10" and I started HST about 6 weeks ago (2 more to go in my first cycle). Sooo when I started I was 206 lbs the only measurements I got were waist and neck (army body fat measurements) Waist was 41 1/2 Neck was 16 1/4". Now I'm up to 211 neck is up to 16 1/2" Waist is 41 1/2" still. So Thank you HST. My goal is to get up to 220 lbs using HST before I cut.
Okay, I got my hands on measuring tape, and get sizes for my Chest/Biceps So heres, everything I'm monitoring (I'm working my legs, but don't really care about how much bigger there getting, there pretty decent size)
L/R Bicep: 14 1/4"
Waist: 41 1/2"
