“It’s more than clear to me that things have paid off. I’m about 10 pounds up from starting again, and I’ve loved it all. I let go (within reason) the past couple of weekends as I’m trying to enjoy more of life now and probably put on a tiny bit more fat than before. Either way, while I’m more than pleased with my progress, I’m more excited about the future as I feel very comfortable taking over from here.
I definitely didn’t think I’d be squatting twice my bodyweight (especially not for reps) or deadlifting ~350 pounds for reps. It’s been an exciting three months! – Brad”
Weight: 5’10′′, Weight:147.2lbs -> 156.5lbs, Stomach: 29.5′′ -> 29.9′′ Squat: 225lbs x 5 -> 315lbs x 5 Bench: 170lbs x 5 -> 220lbs x 5 Deadlift: 255lbs x 5 -> 345lbs x 3
This is the second time Brad hired me. The first time was for a cut which you can see in the first picture. He then finished the cut on his own and hired me to take care of a bulk for him.
Part of my comment to Brad: Here we find a classic example of what happens when people are patient, progress things in incremental, logical steps. Week to week the changes may have been unnoticeable in the mirror, and this usually leads to frustration, and stupid things quickly follow. You trusted in the process unquestioningly and got the results. Thank you for that.
12 weeks then and around 10lbs gained. Do you have more total body fat than before? Possibly. But there is no denying that despite this your abs look more defined as your whole body has grown.
