just thought i'd mention that I'm trying to post here with "workout" related stuff, because bodybuilding.com is no fucking help at all! anyhow I've been working out a while and I tried to get up to 200lbs this year, i failed. Last year i was 185 about (may) and by december i had reached 200, but my waist was huge and i was.....fat. So I cut down and i'm 191 right now and my waist is still 38in (used to be 40). So in the next month I will be cutting down to 185, same as last year. I made no progress. I should mention however that I did make progress in the strength department. My question is, what is wrong when you bulk but all you put on is fat? not enough protein? i hope not cuz i get on average 300grms a day. I should also mention that i'm 5'9 and have a "smallish" frame, my wrists are about 6 1/2 inches around.
