I have got to say you are looking JACKED, especially compared to our last blog. Even though the numbers on the scale may seem strange, there is no question you gained muscle and lost weight. Your first two months back are always strange and I'm sure now that you've cultivated the habit, you will be able to control your weight much better. Your arms and shoulders seriously look way bigger! 165 is sooooo attainable it's crazy.
My stats as of today (April 12th, 2016):
215 lbs, coming in at approximately 20% body fat.
Bench: 225 lbs x 6
Deadlift: 315 lbs x 6
Squat: 225 lbs x 6
Main goal is to keep lifts where they are currently and drop body fat to single digit % over the next 12 weeks. Totally shredded by July.
I would say the bulk was overall a success, I really enjoyed not worrying about what I was eating and just focusing on lifting as heavy as I could. Unfortunately I don't think this is the healthiest way to live, so I'll leave that for the winter bulk season.

Cardio and Abs Routine
I would love to hear more about what your supplement guy had to say regarding your routine!
Also if strength and gains are your main goal, then we can definitely find a more appropriate routine for your goals!
Either the: Fierce 5x5
Or the: AllPro Novice Routine
Anyway, once again I'm so proud and motivated that you stuck to it for this long with me!
Love you bro :)
