    I think you're being a little hard on yourself, from your picture I think you have good potential and could make really good progress in the next 12 months.

    The advice above is good. Also figure...

    Yes, that's know as recomping. There's nothing wrong with that, but as far as I'm aware it tends to work better in untrained individuals or those with a lot of fat to lose. I think after a certain...

    But muscle can't be built out of fresh air. I know you mentioned protein, but "maintenance" equals the number of calories your body needs to stay the same, not the number it needs to grow.

    Good advice. I've been thinking lately, I'm getting a bit podgy, should I cut? Then I think, the gym's closed, I can't lift heavy, if I cut now the muscle I have gained will waste away. I start...

    Thanks, it's interesting to know. I still have the lower belly fat, in fact it's worse now as I've been slow bulking for the last 12 months. But I would love to get rid of it eventually (planning to...

    Ignoring the squat, bit depressing if the OP's lifts are nothing more than average. I'm 20 pounds heavier, been training for 2 years, and my incline bench and curls are virtually the same as his (on...

    If we weren't told about it, I'm guessing a lot of older people who have the flu jab would mysteriously still get "the flu" (i.e COVID).

    And the idea of lockdown wasn't to stop people getting it,...

    Looking good as always!

    I know what you mean about the sunken look.

    I've been at 180 pounds for a few months now and don't want to cut until the gym reopens. Feel great in a shirt, but wish I...

    Those calculators are just estimates, nothing can tell you for sure what your maintenance calories are, apart from trial and error.

    You're profile says you're 28 years of age. If that's correct...

    Yes, to clarify I meant slow bulk when the gym reopens. In the meantime I would just do your best to maintain what you have.

    No sign of gyms opening here in the UK. People are saying it might be...

    OP, your physique isn't half bad. But as far as abs go, yes they're a bit weak looking. And I'm not being mean, since I have exactly the same problem.

    But since you aren't exactly "fat" I don't...

    Oats with either raisins or frozen fruit added, and a mug of coffee.

    If I trained the day before, then I also have a scoop of whey in either water or milk.

    Yeah that's fine really. Enjoy the extra food, eventually it kind of becomes the norm if you bulk for a period of time!

    Looks ok to me. You're possibly getting more protein than you need, but I'm 180 pounds and regularly eating 220 grams of protein a day, not because I believe I need that much, but because I like...

    I'd like to find a deodorant that doesn't leave crust marks on clothes. I know some are advertised not to do this but I get the impression they're weak.

    I often find wearing deodorant actually...

    When I was cutting I would religiously weigh everything to the last gram, even condiments such as a little squirt of ketchup. I wanted to be as accurate as possible and also squeeze in every bit of...

    Funnily enough I actually gave up working out and going to the gym when I became a dad, because I just didn't have the time or the motivation any longer.

    Fast forward 10 years and I was just...

    CICO, IIFYM, etc.

    I think where they become "bad" for you is when you eat mainly "bad" foods and don't leave much room for the good foods.

    If you eat 2000 calories a day and 200 of those are...
