I'm a bit late to the party here but, Christ mike! Looking huge man, whenever I bulk for a while I start getting a bit of a belly ahha although I'm pretty sure it's just bloating.. Any tips in how to avoid that? Hope you haven't died from Saharan dusted air pollution ;)

Ross my friend hows things? looked like you had a nice holiday! cheers mate im getting there slowly its hard work training around some back problems but i seem have found the exercises that dont mess with it so ill just stick to them for a while! as for the bloating i know what you mean i get that sometimes, i tend to go by how i feel and adjust my food as i go along......eg..if i go out for a veggie chinese i usually feel a bit bloated and fat the next day so i just go low carb and high protein till i feel better again. Im all for high carb diets but when bulking its really easy to over doit and feel like a whale, so i usually eat a load of carbs for my first 2 meals then calm down a little for the rest of the day and keep it high protein lower carb, but due to the morning carbs still have all the energy and less cravings than if you eliminate them altogether. i think salt has a alot to do with this also, it can make you look and feel bloated. I used to bulk by just eating all and everything in sight but im a bit smarter about it now and have learned how to read my body a little better. i hope this had made some sense to you mate and doesnt just look like a paragraph of nonsense :lol:

Ahha yeah I see what you're saying bud :) I have a solution I sometimes use but it doesn't always work, instead of a meal I'll have blended fruit and protein powder. But I think you're right in regards to higher protien! Anywaysss yeah holiday was awesome thanks matey! Properly back to regular training now ;)

fruit and protein is great, nothing tastes and makes you feel as good as fruit in my opinion! you going back to bodyweight stuff mate or are going to get back on the deads and so on???

And to answer your question, I'm gonna start doing both I think, nothing quite like a moderate combination of bodyweight and barbell :)
