    Ok so as most of you know I got a bad case of colitis in late December, got out of the hospital on January 7th and didn't touch a weight for 8 weeks after that. Now I am going to show you my progress since I started lifting and bulking hardcore.


    Ok I went from a lean 215

    to an abysmal 180


    [​IMG]


    back to 215 but not as good looking :(

    Well I plan to keep on eating everything in sight through summer (fuck a beach body this year) and hopefully hit 240 or 250 fairly soon before I cut again (may run Superdrol soon). I have been doing DeFranco's "Westside for Skinny Bastards" routine the whole time and have liked it but have thought about switching over to a CP plan for bodybuilders. If I were to do something like that, what exercises would you recommend and what type of split? I'm pretty new to CP but apparently it's the best thing since dbawlz so I want to try it out. I also would like to hit the gym more than 3 times a week, if possible because I feel like my body responds better than if I were only going 3 days or so.


    So what do you guys think? Sorry for being such a skinny bitch :hs:

    just be careful with the bulking, hubby had colitis last year and he is really sensitive to certain foods now. :( He's never been the same.

    edit: looks like you're doing great though :bigthumb:

    Damn, what a way to pull it back up.

    That's shitty about the illness dude but the fact you've managed to come out of it and still find time to pull back your training is amazing.

    I'd have a hard time knocking that progress, congratz

    Yeah I was mentally devastated afterwards seeing that I had lost like 35 pounds of almost pure muscle. Getting back though :bigthumb:

    or was it 8 weeks to goto the 180 to 215?

    wierd, the typical side effect is to drastically increase appetite.

    Ya, unfortunately it makes you gain fat and it kills off muscle. So you must have lost all your weight before you got on it eh?

    Yeah getting someone , doctor's not knowing the cause or whether or not it's going to be persistent is pretty frustrating :o :hsd:

    Welp a week of laying in a hospital bed and throwing up everything I ate tends to make muscle disappear apparently.
