ill try to make this as short as possible,i can get carried away...

2 years ago ( my Jr year in highschool ) i thought it would be a good idea to take a bodybuilding class, from day one i was hooked. day one, i couldnt pick up a 45lb plate to save my life, i weighed 98 pounds and was skinny as a tooth pic.


now, 2 years later ( last few weeks of Senior year ) i have 2 bodybuilding classes a day and i work out an hour before i go to bed every week day, im 5'8" 145lbs.

Flat Bench: 215lbs 5 reps
Incline Bench: 185lbs 2 reps
Decline Bench: 235lbs 3 reps
Shrug: 405lbs 5 reps
Bicep Curl: 110lbs 5 reps
Military: 230lbs 3 reps
Tricep dips with 70lbs strapped to me: 10 reps

Those are pretty good stats on your lifts, especially given your size. But what about your legs? Do you squat or deadlift?

Great to see that you're dedicated mate, though that does sound like an incredible amount of volume. You're gunna hear this from probably everyone else that posts on this topic too...
Eat more.

Those are nice gains over 2 years. Hit the kitchen and remember that recovery is really important, you don't want to over train.

Yes I do work out 15 times a week, 2 periods of body building a day at school ( 50 minute periods ) and an hour of body weight excersies every day before I go to bed.

I don't really work out my loer body like I do my upper boddy, I do calf raises and squats and lunges, just basic leg work outs.

As far as millitary lift, at school, the coaches call the machine " Jammers ". I put 2 45lb plates and a 25lb plate on each side. 90+90+50= 230.

I take a protein shake. I forget what its called, I think the guy at GNC said it was their brand... it has 60grams of protein per serving.

And finnaly as far as before pics, if you click on my name and go to " posts I've started " you can click on those threads and see older pics. I was re reading them yesterday and in one of the threads I posted my stats, and as I was reading them I was laughing at my self, I exaggerated a lot back when I was younger, I was trying to impress all you guys. But please belive me, all the stats in this thread are 100% true... I don't know what else to tell you.

Thanks

If it's on a machine it's probably nowhere near what 230lbs of real freeweights feel like.

I saw you didnt bother to post your squat and DL numbers. Why?

Do you look back at pictures of people in the 80s and wonder why they dressed so horribly?

Yeah, pull your damn pants up and stop using boxers as a fashion accessory.

The pictures arent showing up anymore I dont think? I only see a before picture?

Anyways, nice lifts for your size. 215x5 is pretty sick at 145lbs.

Wow.

Then that would be a jammer machine press, not a military press.

Glad to see you have dedication and put in the hard work. I would revamp the routine but keep at it man.

Spend more time eating and less time posting exaggerated lifts.

Man, this thread turned out kind of harsh. Just by doing any type of exercise, you're ahead of most of the people your age. Keep at it, and learn to enjoy the barbell and you'll still be ahead of most people by the time you're 20.

LMAO.

For those wondering what a Jammer is(like I was): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2DKsxlTZq6w

OP: Solid progress over two years. Just know you could've put on a lot more weight (muscle), at least I'd assume. You did stay very lean though, and you look way better than I did when I was your age. If I were you, I'd eat more, and switch to freeweights. Just FYI, you have almost zero chance of getting respect around here if machines are the core of your workout.

Now I feel stupid. OP if you put on 50lbs you are definitely heading in the right direction. I would continue eating like a horse and training hard.

I think his numbers may be alittle out there but people should atleast be supportive and help him. This thread is just ripping him apart.

Yea, I would stop working out 15 times a week though.

I'm going to guess all of those lifts are on some sort of machine?

I remember when I could rep 580lbs x5 in the Hammer Strength Decline bench machine and 360 x 8 in the Hammer Milt press one! I love those things!! too bad I got into powerlifting...but seriously training that many times a week is not a good thing to do.

ahh, stop giving him flack, he looks good.. he's just inexperienced, he got confused with workouts, i can easily see him doing 230x3 on the jammer press, thats a very easy exercise

I don't know why everyone on here hates on skinny people. I'm not going to name names but some people on here are fat and will always be fat and hate people who are naturally thin. The guy has obviously gotten a lot stronger, for which I say *good job man*. I don't appreciate the double standard. I see fat people on here all the time who post pics of themselves after loosing 20 lbs but are still grossly overweight. Never once have I seen someone post "good job, but you're still about 40 lbs too fat" or "Where are the cut pics?". This is exactly what you all are doing to those that are natually thin and I think it sucks.

OP - keep at it, you're young and from what you describe you are making great progress. If you had the same results + 20 lbs of fat everyone would be patting you on the back. You're not so everyone feels the need to make snarky comments. Don't get bigorexia like so many on here. Staying lean and fit at the same time is healthy and looks attractive. Gaining 20 lbs of fat to gain 5 lbs of muscle is not healthy, and doesn't look attractive.

Dont look too bad, but looks like you need to eat more. 50 lbs is descent, keep it up. You would get even better results from lifting free weights.

How do you shrug 405? Just interested.

I didn't read anyone call him skinny, he just doesn't look very muscular, and if your referring to the few that made the reference (eat) I believe that was more for MASS purposes. I am 6'0 298 at 18%BF so I may be one of the fat one's you are making reference to, But I dont think the kid is skinny but I do call BS on a few of the lifts and that's what most people are referring to. F**k his weight, throw that out of the window.. HE DOESN"T LOOK MUSCULAR ENOUGH TO BACK UP THOSE LIFT NUMBERS.

To the OP:

Keep at it brother, F**k what everyone says even me. Keep lifting, keep your goals in sight, and dont look back...

I have 22% BF but I am bulking. You should see me on a 35% BF bulk.

And he is 150lbs at 5'8" thats good dudes. And you guys who are a turd bigger than him,so what? I crap turds bigger than the 20lbs you have on him.


Give him a break, he just needs to eat more. A bodybuilder isnt born overnight, he is born from years in the kitchen.

Here, let me help you out Beast Genetics since you somehow missed the posts making fun of him for being skinny.
