looks like a successful bulk. legs might be trailing a bit, but nothing serious. keep up the hard work.

Thanks any other comments or thoguhts?

lookin pretty good bro, hit those weights harder tho!

You look good for 18, but I'm not sure what to advise without knowing what your routine and diet are like. If you share that with the group, I think we can give you some specifics.

You look good. We have similar physiques.

I'd just say keep doing whatever you're doing, its working.

Ive been working out hard for about 15 months..started from about 165 i think. But I really started bulking hard from New years and so far I've gone from i 187 to 205. My routine would look somewhat like:
Day 1- Upper Body-
-3 X 5 reps Bench
-about 6 other sets for chest (dips, pec dec, whatever)
-3 X 6 Pull ups for the lats and about another 5 sets working the lats (Bent over rows, whatever else)
-And another 3 sets for shoulders (Lateral raises)

Day 2- Lower Body (and sometimes abs)
-5 or 6 sets of Squats X 7 reps
-3 sets deadlifts X 6 reps (some weeks I will leave out deadlifts)
-3 sets Leg Raises and 3 sets Calf raises

Day 3- Rest

Sometimes Ill throw in isolation exercises for bis and tris, I try and go for low reps to increase strength too.
This is pretty vague but kind of an idea of what my routine looks liek right now. I'm trying to get as big as possible.

What do you guys think?

Your two-day split has worked to get you where you are now. My recommendation is to move to a 3-day split, include lots of compound exercises (squats, deads, etc.), go heavy, and eat a little more. Your chest and back look good, but I'd say your arms and legs are lagging a little. Get them stronger and your chest/back will benefit as well. But overall, you've done well and I think it's time to change it up a little.

Thanks man, I was thinking the same about needing to switch it up..what would you suggest for improving strength on my arms?

04-18-2008, 12:47 AM
lift heavy weights with your upper body.

follow a good routine, train hard, eat right, and the strength will come.

Please. You definitely look like you weight 200+lbs. Looking good.

That said -- I'd change up your routine a little. I can't recommend the BGB (Baby Got Back) routine enough.

Thanks mang, haha whats the baby got back routine? Todays workout I just spent on arms (did a few exercises for the bis and a few for the tris) :s...I'm gonna take a few days off though for some much needed rest too.

10-08-2008, 09:07 AM
I was at about 205 before..and now I'm about 190-195

10-08-2008, 11:20 AM
Wow, I can already see that your abs are HUGE. If you drop a few more pounds those suckers will look really really nice.

10-08-2008, 12:52 PM

Good job on the bulk and the cutting - excellent progress!

10-08-2008, 05:53 PM
good bulk, i expect you to look cut by summer :P

10-11-2008, 03:08 AM
Looking great. Looks you leaned out a bit and gained some muscle. Whatever you are doing is working

10-15-2008, 04:15 PM
So much for leaning out..I wasn't seeing my strength go up much from what I've been eating..so just the other day I started back to eating like a beast.

10-16-2008, 10:19 AM
You're back development looks to be you strong point keep it up!

10-20-2008, 01:29 PM
I noticed the same about the back, too. Even in your earlier bulk shot, your back didn't look nearly as soft as the rest of you. And now, in your cut shots, your back seems to have maintained most of its mass while the rest of your body looks MUCH better.

Good maneuvering.

Just need to keep it going!
