So far so good, but it's only a week in, I'll probably give it about a month, judge the results, but I find switching it up from time to time keeps me extra motivated.

Wow gains look pretty good 12lbs in 5 months, looks like your halfway to your goal? 5 more months would do maybe? Awesome

Thanks... Yeah I'm projecting around September to hit the goal, just need to stay consistent and be patient. I know I could attain it in a months time, but that defeats the purpose of a lean bulk.

Great shoulder workout, feeling good, really widening my upper half. Unfortunately due to my surgery my left delt isn't developing as quick as my right, so I'll be spending some quality time, strengthening and targeting it in general. Differently kind of cardio today, loved it, got a good sweat going, hopefully burned some fat in the progress.

20 mins of Moderate Intensity Cardio on Treadmill

Today I set out to trick my body, this workout was extremely intense, but felt great afterwards. My bench has gone up significantly considering the first time I benched in 4 years was about 5 months ago, now I'm lifting heavier than I was before my two surgeries. Tomorrow I'm going to try to hit up some core and cardio, all depends on how much homework I can get done.

Quad workout was extremely intense today, by time I hit the hack machine I was struggling. Though my quads were looking insane in the mirror during the sets, just got to keep up the hard work. Arms will be hit again on Friday, as the current phase of my program has them twice a week for the next few weeks. Tomorrow will be hamstrings, forearms, and core.

Beginning to feel really strong on bench, I'll probably max out next week when I have a spotter. Once again calves were on fire. Feeling a lot better think I'll be over this cold in the near future.
