    My Progression

    Hey guys, so about two months ago I decided to become more devoted to my physical development. I have a calisthenics background so I incorporate that along with resistance training and do cardio every other day.

    Here are some of my current stats:

    Height: 5'9
    BW: c. 125lbs
    Chest: 34.5in
    Arms: 12.2in (Flexed)
    Waist: 26in

    I don't go to the gym; so most of my workouts consist of body weight exercises and resistance training since I do own weights. My level of strength is pretty high for a person my size. Not really following a specific program at the moment, but over the past months I've noticed notable changes to my physique and my strength has significantly increased which I'm very happy about.

    I eat about 2100 calories a day, sometimes more to compensate for cardio. Currently in a re-comp phase, which my body has responded pretty well too up until now.

    If my progress does start slowing down significantly, or notice that I'm stalling, I'll evaluate the situation and decide whether I want to enter more of a lean bulk; but for now I wanna milk the re-comp, as I'm currently at the level of a novice, strength comes pretty easily at this point.

    I will continue to update my progress over the following months and hopefully succeed in whatever I'm trying to achieve, and I wish you all the same!

    Bellow are some progress pics that I took about a month and a half apart. (First on July 11, second was a few minutes ago.)

    9/12/19 Update

    Still sticking to the program! (Not an actual program). Although lately I've been feeling as if my recovery has been suffering more and more. I haven't been sleeping as much as I should be either. The re-comp might also be starting to stall..

    Nevertheless, I don't plan on giving up and the rapid notable changes are quite motivating.

    I've attached two pictures down bellow; one relaxed and another in a flexed state.

    Besides the physique aspect; I feel like I'm getting stronger by the day. Started including tricep extentions as I feel like it's a lagging area. I'm a lot faster in the cardio sessions and just today I managed to cover 3.5km within a 15 minute time-frame.

    I'll add a list of the exercises I do throughout the week if requested, but be wary because like I said, I'm not really following a specific program designed for muscle growth.

    Once again, I wish the best for everyone in whatever you're trying to achieve and let's keep milking those gains.

    Haven't posted in a while.

    Here are some pics from 9/29/19 and 10/5/19.

    My recovery had been suffering quite a lot lately, so I decided to slow down a little. Haven't been getting enough sleep either. Nevertheless, I do see progress, albeit really small because I'm still re-comping. Might decide to enter a lean bulk in December since it gets really cold where I'm at, and if I do I plan to take it slow.

    Arms went from 11 to 12.5in in the last 3 months, which I'm super happy about.

    So, it's been 10 days since I started my lean bulk. Taking things very slowly so my weight hasn't changed much if at all. Snow started falling so I might be doing less cardio from this point onward but that's okay. Even though I won't be doing as much, I'll make sure to maintain my hard earned conditioning somehow.

    How much are you eating in your lean bulk?
    You said you started with 2100, that is not enough certainly.

    Around 2200. So just a 5% surplus with the intention of gaining half a pound to a pound per month.
