However, the added 10lb. of mass REALLY helped my numbers in the gym. I finished that back in march at 185 and 12% (almost 13%) bodyfat. I've been able to maintain at 180 and about 10% BF. All of my max effort lifts have shot through the roof.
I'm doing my first ever powerlifting meet this weekend (RAW) and will exceed a 1,000lb. total.
I just read your post at your blog. Good stuff bro.
