    it has been about 11.28 weeks or 79 days, thought i'd put up some progress pics. unfortunately i went full dreamer during the first month (November) and gained 6 lbs, gained about 4 lbs in December, and 2 lbs in January. Calories were about 2800-3300... protein was about 150 grams. Lifts increased drastically bench 175*6 > 205*5
    dl 305*4 > 335*3
    squat 275*5 > 320*5

    don't think i gained much size though... if any at all. thoughts? should i continue bulking till the end of February or should i cut?? oh yeah im about 173.5 lbs atm

    two and a half months is not that long really mate, you would gain some muscle in that time but not all that much just cut the calories a little as you seem to be gaining too much fat and carry on for a few months and evaluate then if you need to increase them again depending on how much weight you gained.

    The fact you gained strength is a good sign your on the right track, keep up the intensity, but the strength gains will start to be a lot less the stronger you get.
