Not bad at all dude. Gotta love the way you took those pics of your legs standing up on the side of the bathtub:D

Solid base you got going. Your shoulders are nice and wide, your traps look pretty good and your chest is starting to come in. You still need a little more mass throughout your whole chest.

Your quads look in good proportion to the rest of your body. Calves look especially good.

Just stick with it....you will be a large one.

Agree, you look great, just the chest seems a bit behind. Awesome though! Nice work

09-23-2002, 11:27 AM
woohoo! leg pics! :clap:

nice work. you've got a nice shape to ya, and some decent mass. I agree the chest needs work tho.

Nice legs. I wish my calves would grow. Kill me.

09-23-2002, 03:35 PM
I agree with the rest. I think from the pic that the legs and calves are you best attributes as of right now. The things that I do see you could work on are your chest(as everyone has stated) I think from the front view that you should work on your lats. I would also hit your shoulders alittle harder in my opinion but who the hell am I.

I think that you are looking pretty good but the chest is holding you back.

yeah, u look good man everything has been said, nice leg work, at least you havent neglected them like many seem to do

Thanks for the comments and criticism everyone, really appreciated!!!

What can I do for chest to improve?
Currently I do chest once a week, here's my routine.

Incline bb press 3x8
Flat db press 2x8
Reverse cable x-over 2x10

I mix this up with
flat bb press 3.8
Incline db press 2.8
Reverse cable x-over 2.10 or dips 2x10

Here's a thread on in the training section to help my chest....
Keep the comments coming!!

Smoothie, how long have you been working out? I ask only because chest is sometimes very stubborn for some folks. Others get more of their delts involved than they should. Then, you got some (like I was) that had/have both those problems.

I don't see anything wrong with the chest routines you said you were doing. The only thing I might do would be to forget that cable crossover move for now and incorporate some dips and DB flies into your chest day. Also, make sure you roll your shoulders in and back before lying on the bench so your chest is really puffed up and doing all the work (and not your delts). Other than that......I can only tell you it takes time for some folks for chest to come around. It will though. Stick with it and be patient.

FYI....my chest resembled yours after even 2 years training but has finally responded some. Patience my friend.

You're looking great. Beastly legs!
Your lats need work. Maybe a little in the chest too.

09-23-2002, 07:09 PM
BennettBoy, I've been working out for maybe 4 years now, but being more serious in the last two. I'll try doing weighted dips instead of the x-overs and see how that is. Whats your chest routine like? Not sure if I should go lower reps, or what.

Thanks for the comments everyone, keep them coming!!

good mass. work on chest.

09-25-2002, 05:31 PM

The question that I have for you is , " Are you just going to 8 every time on your sets? Do you have the strength to keep pushing out more?" If so, then go to failure try that. I even mentioned to BennettBoy maybe some pre-exhaustion with isolating movements before compounds.

Try some drop sets or giant sets. Just some suggestions. I think that you look great, and that you could be a beast, just trying to help you get there.

Yours concerned

usually some guy named eric or somethin catches that stuff!

and btw, are you natural?

I say hit your chest better, it's kinda small. For chest do this:

Bench Press (flat)
Incline Dumbell Press
Flye's (dumbells)

Maybe add one more excersize their as well, Dips or something good. Do about 3 sets each for desired reps.

GG, I try for about 8 reps for failure on each set.

Yes I'm natural and yes there is something in my underpants and if you want pics of that, just let me know!!;)
