View Full Version : My Current Pics!

07-11-2008, 07:48 AM
Thought I would throw up some pics, so you guys/girls can give advice or criticize on what I might need to give more attention to. I've been lifting solid since February. Only supplements I'm on, is MHP Trac Xtreme NO, N-Large for Protein, and trying to eat more and more everyday. I am 5'9" and as of last night 188.6 lbs. I started at 170lbs in Februaury. I maxed for 1 rep about 2 weeks ago, and got 365 clean (I know you probably want a video, and I will try to get one next time). Tried 405 just for the hell of it, but my lifting partner said he gave me a slight nudge when I started to push back up, so I don't count it. Just started doing Deads 2 weeks ago, and started a more aggressive leg routine. Haven't maxed out either yet, but currently doing 250 x 9 on deads, and 240 x 20 for squats( WBB 2 routine). So thats where I'm at, please feel free to guess my BF% and critique. I feel that my legs and lats need more attention. What do you think?

No Flex!

I think you look awesome. For just starting deads, you're back does not look like it's lagging to me.

I agree with the rest. You look great.

phenominal build, dude! and you can clean 365?!? omg, teach me your ways.

07-11-2008, 05:49 PM
Jed I think 365 deadlift cleanly.
nice work, being lean and good amount of muscle is hard to do... I agree about the lats (they are hard to flex to make them the most impressive though), and legs can hardly ever be to large.

07-11-2008, 05:51 PM
ooooh, that would make more sense :) im sure he could clean the house though!

07-11-2008, 05:57 PM
Very well rounded physique dude. You look great.

I think he is talking about bench when he says 365?

the one
07-11-2008, 06:09 PM
i thought shoulders looked a little weak....then i saw your back double bi and totally thought otherwise. you look good man. after a year of so of deads your gonna look sick man keep going!

07-11-2008, 07:00 PM
Detard your probably correct about 365 bench? OP?

07-11-2008, 07:42 PM
looking solid, man. nice work!

07-11-2008, 10:57 PM
damn dude, your lucky, you've got what a BUNCH of us here would love to have. you've done some hard work and it shows, keep at it.

07-11-2008, 11:24 PM
Damn I hope to look like you in the future. Keep it up!

Thanks for the comments. I appreciate it. I think it is hard to notice yourself changing or how you look, until someone else tells ya. Refering to the 365, that was my 1 rep max for bench. I haven't maxed deads, or squats yet. I am going to wait until I feel comfortable enough with those excercises' to max (aka - Get a lil stronger)

Bill - yeah the lat thing to me is kind of frusterating. When I get done with this WBB 2 routine, I am going to switch it up to more dumbbell rows, etc.

Any estimates on BF%?

Awesome pics dude. You are basically what I want to look like. Tats and everything.

07-12-2008, 08:49 AM
Excellent physique, props on getting to this point.

07-13-2008, 02:07 AM
Any guesses on BF %?

07-13-2008, 02:40 AM

Excuse Keith, he was severely wasted when he posted this. LOL.

07-13-2008, 06:34 AM
You look incredible!

Love the tats :D

Only flaw I see is overall thickness in the back.

Lol yeah, dont mind keith. He was very intoxicated lol:alcoholic:

07-13-2008, 11:01 AM
I'm a very sarcastic drunk. You look amazing, dude. Especially considering your experience. I'd say you're sitting at about 11% BF. And I agree with Tennessee Mike, looks like your weak point is back thickness.

07-13-2008, 01:53 PM
Looking real strong Mike. Keep it up!

07-13-2008, 04:15 PM
Your torso symmetry is awesome. Good work, man.

07-13-2008, 07:06 PM
Thanks to everybody for the criticism. I appreciate it. I agree with the suggestions on the back thickness, I feel the same. Hopefully after the next few weeks/months doing Deads, it will improve. We'll see.

Oh, Keith - No worries Bro its all good. 11%? I will go with that, thanks.

"Looking real strong Mike. Keep it up!" - Tuef.... Thanks Brotha

You look great man ..................................!

Any guesses on BF %?

Since it looks like nobody else is going to answer your question, I will. I'd say about 9-10%. I agree with a lot of the other comments - your physique is very inspirational.

07-22-2008, 09:09 PM
No offense Keith - didn't notice your estimate til I clicked send.

07-22-2008, 09:21 PM
so you just became dedicated since february or you literally started lifting in february? because that would be some sick progress...

07-24-2008, 04:04 PM
I've been lifting off and on, but I usually got into for a couple of months, then my schedule got jacked and never made myself get back to it 'til like 1 1/2 - 2 yrs went by. When I did my work up for Iraq, and while we were there, I got in pretty good shape. Then when we got back and I started a new job, I was gone from the house 13-14hrs a day, and just didnt have the time. We recently had a gym open up locally, then I got a membership and have been going ever since, but this time I wont stop unless I get into a freak accident with a llama.......what!

Eastbaylifter: Thanks for answering my question Bro, and thanks for the comments.
