So I'm finally posting a couple pics, I'll post the wheels later. My arms don't have a lot of definition, my triceps are definitely dominant over the biceps. I've been back into lifting for about 6 mos after a 3 year hiatus. Any feedback, good or bad, is appreciated.

Eric says you look great and he thinks your handsome.
Seriously, keep hitting the weights hard.

nice afro, mate

You look like you have some decent size coming in; keep growing and then spend some time cutting up

Erin go bragh!

I don't feel so bad anymore.
Like me you need more cardio.

I'm bulking right now, so I'm gonna hold off a couple more months on the cardio until my cutting cycle.

You look good, especially considering you're just getting back into the swing of things after such a long hiatus. You're definitely higher than 15% bodyfat, though. How did you have it determined? Bio-electrical impedance?

It was tested at 15% with both Bio-electrical and calipers. Of course, that was about 3 months ago when I was 15-20 pounds lighter:p so I'm sure you're right, that I've gained some fat since then (but I've sure as hell gained some muscle too). I plan on bulking until I'm 195-200 and then start cutting around january.

I think you'd have easier times packing on the muscle after you cut abit - If I were you I would not pack another 15lbs before cutting off some fat - just my humble opinion.

You look like yo have a thick foundation to restart on. I'm 5'8 also but I have about 2 year hold, however I got skinny and gained a lot of body fat, but I cut down before I started bulking up that helped me go through a cleaner bulk and now I don't have as much BF to last I probaby would have. I under stand bulking because after i get my six pack I'm going on a clean bulk to reach 200lbs. That way when I cut down I might way about 180lbs and I can look like STAN MCQUAY:thumbup:

Yes, they are my pics, and yes, those are my actual stats. If I was going to exaggerate, then I'd say my bench was a helluva lot higher than 205 x 3.
:rolleyes:


I know a chick at my work who can bench 200 for god's sake.

Hey hold it there Sparky, nobody is accusing you of anything. You just seem a bit small for someone to be doing PROPER tricep pressdowns with 35 Lbs less than you weigh is all. 150 LB pressdown at 185 Lbs is impressive, but you can do it for 10. That is very impressive. Your triceps must be growing well. Congrats and keep lifting.

Yeah, my Tri's have always been my strong point. I do press downs w/ a full ROM and proper form.
