Just for shits and giggles, I get on the scale this morning and it states 17%, I don't trust this either. I grab the calipers, pinch again, just under 10mm.....I go to the interwebs and find the other chart posted below. Edit, the PDF is the original chart I was using, the one shown below is what I believe to be accurate.

SON OF A BISH!!!! This gentlemen is why it is important to have accurate information.

Check out that on the first chart age 41-45, that 8-9 =13.8, then 10-11 = 18.9, then 12-13 = 17.8. and at the same time

Have a look at this site and try the Jackson/Pollock 3 site method. Just put in your weight and age and those 3 measurements. It should get you very close to what your actual BF % is. I just get the guy that owns my gym to do a 7 site measurement on me.

A lot of it comes down to hitting the same spot consistently, and having a good set of calipers.

When I do these particular bent rows (feet on split platform, bar pivots behind me) I do it with my knees bent at about 65degrees, to take the standing pressure on my thighs instead of my lower back. I'm not doing anything any of you would consider heavy, but I am definitely bent at the waist.

Each time I step off, about 2 seconds later I get light-headed. It's almost as if the legs are cut off by the bend in the waist, yet are supporting the weight, and then when I stand all the blood rushes down there.


On the body fat, isn't the true test floating in water??? From the waist down I can't keep off the bottom of the pool. I would expect my belly would keep me afloat, but even face-down I can't stay floating. Last night it pissed me off because even after back/bi night, my arms keep wanting to float to the surface

I do some type of clean and press or power clean in my programming as a Tier 2 exercise. That means it follows a bigger lift such as a dead-lift or rack pull.

It's rotated into my workout about 5 days apart. Not doing them all during the same workout, but picking 1 and doing it. 5 days later it will be another 1 of these...but obviously different than the previous workout.

Same here...I always do them at about a 45 angle unless I'm doing Pendelay rows where the bar starts from the ground each rep. My knees are bent in a a position that if I were holding the bar standing straight up, I just bend forward at the angle mentioned above and let me knees rest where they land.

You can do a Bent Row almost standing straight up as long as you focus on pulling back and keeping your scapula retracted. If doing that, you will feel the muscles contract.

As for body fat....I know you can do hydro-static weighing in a pool where you exhale all the air out of your lungs..then get dunked under. It's supposed to be more accurate than most anything else. But I find calipers accurate enough to track progress. I just want to see numbers moving and not really concerned with what they say.

As JP10 says...the mirror tells all.

You guys talking about body fat, it always brings to mind Homer Simpson doing some sort of "jello jiggle" test at his Dr.s office.

After starting Homer jiggling, "Cancel my lunch and 2:00 appointments"

Also I was quite proud of the fat I have gained since starting my bulk.

I don't look like a veiny penis anymore!!
thanks brother. i feel like i'm lacking in the side tricep or maybe my arm is just fat veiny penis's haha! well it's almost winter so you know everyone bulks so you're okay!

I wouldn't be concerned as you have plenty of thickness going on.

Side triceps are one of those that don't develop a lot of size anyway, so it contributes very little to arm mass. The middle and long head provide the biggest part, and the side triceps will come in more and more as you lean out.

At that point it's creating an illusion. Your arm looks bigger because it's more defined.

And yes...it's slightly past 1:30am and I woke up about 15 minutes ago wide awake.

But I feel like I've been asleep for 10 hours already!! Guess I'll go browse the corvette forum.

I struggle with outer head as well want it to be larger and come down further but partially genetics. Mines decent but always a focus when I do tris.

Felt like all I did was eat this weekend, but doesn't seem like I put on any unwanted weight. Hit legs pretty hard and a lot of cardio (watch said I burnt 1000 calories in the gym yesterday) so that most likely helped. Had a wild back/tri day this morning, most likely due to the ridiculous amount of food yesterday.

Think I'm going to start a little cut this week until 11/23, see if I can lean out a little before Thanksgiving. Sitting around 195-200 right now going to shoot for 190, shouldn't be too difficult since I've been a surplus recently.

Lower back feels like it is back to 100%, but with that said I'm not pushing it too hard yet. Never know when something stupid will fuck it up. Although compared to the first time when I injured my back a few years ago and the 6months of recovery I couldn't be happier with only 5 days of issues!

Started back at the gym this morning after two whole weeks away from it. I felt like a pansy with the weight I was using.......but I learned a long time ago how important it is to ease back into things or else you pay the price.

I'm not worried though and just stay covered up. Plus "muscle memory" is a hell of a thing!

I'm hoping to be setting some new personal bests in the next 6-8 weeks!

I bet those joints feel great after that amount of time off. I don't know how you went 2 weeks without going, hell I miss a day and I feel lazy to an extent!

What're your calories going to be looking like the next 6-8weeks? I know last you talked you were bringing them back down after bulking.
