Majority of the time I was 225 lbs so 159.75 LBM down to now 156.56 LBM. Not bad.
Thank again for the help, I definitely see where you are coming from since I always heard the same thing about too much body fat hindering muscle gains.
No problem Arian.
If you have questions along the way, you know where to find me.
And if you only have time for one, read the first article.

I am going to have to rethink my flat bench days, I feel it so much in my front delts.
I really enjoy my incline bench days, ironically, I feel it more in my chest on those days inspite of the incline which you'd think would make it more delt.
