Lean Bulk Progress – 1 month and 20 days in

It has been 50 days (7 weeks and some change) since I started this lean bulk on September 30. I started at 173lbs. After 7 weeks of a dietary surplus, I currently weigh 182lbs. Below are pictures of me posing from each week on this lean bulk.

Week 1: +2lbs

Week 2: +1lbs

Week 3: +2lbs

Week 4: +0lbs

Feels:

The added calories has been helping with the pump in all my workouts! I feel strong, healthy and surprisingly leaner than when I was at 173lbs. I definitely feel like my muscles have a “fuller” look to them. Overall, I feel great. Some weeks have been hard on my diet due to my schedule, and not getting enough food in for the day.

Thoughts:

Weight has been slowly going up, about 1lb per week. My weight has been going back and forth between 179-182lbs depending on water intake, and food intake on certain days. This lean bulk has definitely been going the way I want it to. My strength has gone up, and my increased volume per workout has helped my muscles grow.


I have two more weeks of this lean bulk before I have to start my prep for the Upper Midwest on March 24th, 2018. I am hoping to gain another 2-4lbs! I will update this blog in two weeks after I’ve finished this lean bulk and have started my prep!
