View Full Version : 2.5 years progress & Current

12-12-2010, 11:12 AM
Hey guys.. the first two pictures are a comparison of before I joined the Army and current(today) pictures. As you can tell I was somewhat fit before the military,then joined and worked out off and on once I got to my unit. Currently deployed to Afghanistan and the last 3 months been hitting the gym pretty hard. I think I've made decent progress.

Some general info:
Weight: 183lbs
Height: 6' 0"
Bench: 240 (sets)
Squats: 260 (sets)
Deadlifts: 375 (sets)
Standing Curl: 50lb DB (sets)

Don't have any max weights.. since I workout alone.






Lighting is kinda off to the side so it makes my muscles look unbalanced, however they are.


Legs are weak, I know. Been doing squats and stiff leg deadlifts trying to get them bigger. But having to run a lot in the military seems to be keeping me from actually building mass.

upper body is awesome, great progress. however, i am puzzled as to how you rep 360 on squats with those legs

Simple explanation. Typo. Sorry about that. :bash:

Upper body is superb. Legs are lacking big time however.

I think better leg shots will give a better picture on things or a full body shot to get a good idea on the legs. A simple quad shot makes it tought to critique or compliment.

Well pretty much what you see is what I got.. a body shot wont make them look any better I promise. Really only been squatting for 3 weeks now and I'm using a full body routine, not a split. Out here I do convoys a lot and having your legs cramp up while driving because they are sore is really not a good thing! lol But I'm working on them harder now.. got over that killing soreness of beginning to workout a new muscle group so I don't get as sore anymore.

Really don't wont to be seen as an upper body kinda guy with no legs.. so it's definitely something I'm going to concentrate on. Other than that thanks for the compliments guys!
