Bodybuilding Physique Update 6. (Taking Measurements To Track Size & Progress).

In todays physique update I wanted to share with you where I am currently at, as well as what I will be implementing over the next month along the journey to 165 pounds.

Last month we discussed that I would start using MyFitnessPal to track my calories.  I have been eating around 2700 calories on workout days and 22-2300 calories on rest days.  This has resulted in some muscle gain with minimal fat gain (pretty much just enough for me to notice) over the last month.

This next month I am going to stick to 2700 calories on lifting days and 22-2300 calories on abs workout days.

I am also going to start taking measurements of my legs, arms, waist etc. to track my progress and make sure I am actually making consistent gains each month.

My current measurements:

Arms: 12 in
Legs: 19 in
Calves: 14 in
Waist: 29.5 in
Chest: 34.5-35 in

Overall this month has been successful in moving toward my big goal of 165 pounds by 2024 while maintaining a pretty lean body fat percentage.  However the past couple days I have been bloated from pigging out on my cheat day this past weekend.

The biggest problem I have actually noticed from myself this month is there were multiple days where I forgot to track and update the weight I was lifting while in the gym.

That being said, I was still able to make consistent and noticeable gains this past month.

Where I want to be within the next month.

Over the next month I also want to see if I am able to get all of these numbers (except for my waist) up half an inch as well.

Closing thoughts.

I have still not been having any luck with the body fat monitor at the gym, but as always I will continue to keep trying to use it and see if it eventually works for me.
