Lookin' great, dude. Pretty damn proportionate if you ask me. Wheels look like they have some more room to grow.

Yeah, they could. Just saying if I had to pick something to critique, that would be it. But as I said, overall you're very proportionate.

Thanks, I GHD them.
I dont follow the WODs as such, but I do the Crossfit warmup before every session, and I like to do 1 or 2 of the benchmark workouts a week, I did Linda on Sunday, and Im Doing Cindy tomorrow, maybe Fran on Sunday.

Doing great, don't be afraid to eat some pizza and junk. Take advantage of being young and lean, one day you won't have as many good foods on the menu.

Whats the lifts look like? and what did you start from?

As its a trend, id guess you started small and scrawny? Not so much fat?

Just wondering.

Wait a second... aren't you irish?

Surely just give you a few pints of guiness and throw you in the cage with any english opponent and you're unstoppable?

McVein
12-05-2007, 05:14 PM
I am Irish yeh, but theres one thing i hate more than the English, those damn Australians, if you see any around let me know yeh?

As lean as you are you get get those abs cracking through quite easy with just a little more work. The reason I say is because I am a fat ass and have a LOT more work before abs will ever become any type of reality for me.

Like the others said, take advantage of being young and lean.

Keep up the hard work!@

You are getting swole. Great lean gains, thats for sure.

I seriously think the crossfit guys just named workouts after girls so they could FINALLY sound like they were getting some: "I did Cindy yesterday morning, doing Dianne this afternoon but I'll have to rest tomorrow, after those two I'm WIPED yanno what I'm saying <wink>..."

That being said, you are looking mighty tasty - really nice and thick, quads coming along VERY nicely to match that back!

McVein
12-06-2007, 04:01 AM
Haha, I reckon so too, cheers bbbbbbbbbbabe never been called tasty before.

We are the same size; difference is though, I look and feel flabby. Not meaning to derail your thread or anything, it's just interesting to compare people of the same size. Here is me....

I would take your build over mine any day.

I would say McV has less fat in his chest area and is overally a little bit leaner. Morox still not too bad though mate, there are a lot of people far worse off then yourself ;-).

Why do I hear something along the lines of:

"Irish Revenge against The Commonwealth" etc etc

Im American, so sue me. Im at keast more up to date in forign affairs and geography then most of my compatriots.

And as a New Yorker let me say there is nothing scarier than a pissed of irishman. Look up the Draft Riots to see what I mean.

Nice job btw.

Im an American that rambles on.

The Draft Riots were a time in New York City during the Civil War when the Irish Gangs of the Five Points basically kicked the stuffing out of everyone.

When Irish Gangs basically stop New York City still, Id have to feel sorry for the Englishman and the Aussie that crosses ya in the cage.
