NO LAUGHING...please
These were taken this morning, even though I just realized I got the date wrong. These were also taken with my new $20 webcam, so the pics arent very high quality, but it is something to have before I get a digital camera. I had to take these myself, no time delay, kinda sucks, so they are pretty rough...
I havent watched my diet in a long a$$ time, but I am starting my new diet now, so hopefully in about 4 weeks, I will look a lot leaner.
NO FAT JOKES!!!
...but of course you can say whatever you are thinking. Actually, I want to hear what everyone has to say.

Lots of size.

It looks as though you're probably a bit higher than 16%, though. I'd guess 20%+.

What's up with the calves? They look awesome from the rear, but from the side look as though they need some serious work.

Overall, though, you look good. Just diet down a bit and you'll look awesome.

Thanks guys, I know I need to diet quite a bit. The back pic looks like crap, but thats because it is hard to take a pic by yourself when you cant see the screen.
Yates: you're a crazy cracker.
B&I: I cant get my calves to thicken from the side, ah well... genetics.

Calves look great! Your upper body has some good size and muscle thickness. Diet right and you will look damn good after the cut. (Dont ya hate those cutting diets:)

Good size bro!

Also those are some good pics if they are coming from a webcam with no delay. Were you pressing the button with your pecker or what? :D

You look nice and thick, but your bf% is higher than 25%. I am a lot leaner than you and I am in the 20% area.
Cut up and you'll look like a beast.

Chest and calves look good man---back looks like it needs some work though.

SWOLE? Yep, I think so.

Calves look very good from back. Wished I could get mine to look that good.

Monstar: my back is actually my biggest strenght of my upper body, it is just hard to take a pic of your back by yourself.
Craig: thanks, maybe a little too swole... ah well, i have time before the beaches this summer. I havent seen your calves, so I cant say anything. but if you want, I can give you a killer calf program.
Big Geek: Some trainer at the gym asked what my BF% was, and I sad I had no idea, and he told me what he thought it was about 16%, he is probably wrong though.
Not So Big: Yes, I took the picks with my pecker.

Then your pecker must be SWOLE as well...:p


Anyway, you look like you have good size, and good genes for much more size.

Why did you get rid of the picture of your back?

My dad is a big man, so that is where I get it from. I hope I can get some more size to me.
I am trying to take a better pic of my back because it is really bad... so I will have my roommate take the pic so I dont have to try and flex and click the mouse.
thanks for commenting

I missed the back pic. I'd guess you at 18-20% though. Not over 25 though as one suggested. Good mass though.

Well,
I know I am a lot leaner than this guy, and when I measured my BF%, I got 25%.
Mind you I used one of those bathroom scales that can measure BF.

SWOLE
02-26-2003, 12:59 PM
El Pietro: I would say that is probably more accurate than 16% like that one guy guessed.
Big_Geek: thes are your calves http://www.wannabebigforums.com/attachment.php?s=&postid=411085
I would say mine are a little leaner.

I probably look really smoothed over too because before I started lifting again, about 2.5 weeks ago, i took about 7-8 weeks off. that does a lot to your body. so hopefully in another 3 weeks, my skin will be stretched out a little more.
I am going to start taking the same pics at the end of every month, so hopefully there will be some progression.

SWOLE nothing, my grandma looks bigger! j/k

Looking huge dude! Those calves are something else. I can definitely see that calf routine paying off.

Haha, ok this solves it then. Don't believe in those BS scales dude. I've seen your pics before I believe and you are nowhere near 25%. I'm probably around there and you are WAY leaner than I am. You are the guy in your avatar and I'd guess you around 13-15% if it really mattered.

I bet you could stand on those scales in the morning and the evening of the same day and get a 5-10% difference in reading, due to hydration levels.

The pics of my calves is when I just started working out my legs...and that was on my bulking cycle. I measured my bf% a month into my cutting cycle and that's when I got %25. The 2 top rows on my abs are showing, can you see yours?

I figured that scale was off, but I did not expect it to be off by more that 5%. To think I almost bought that POS

SWOLE
02-26-2003, 02:42 PM
I wasnt trying to be offensive Big_Geek... I can see 4 of my abs, that is it. Like in my journal, it says "I can see my abs, but not real well"
thanks for clarifying el pietro

Swole, you look, well... swole. :D :D Great shape to the calves, I believe I have a simular problem with my calves in that they look so thin from the side. You have lots of thickness and I too missed the picture of your back.

Big_Geek, some of those scales are really bad. It may also be different for different people. My caliper tests tell me my bf is 14-15%, however, my scale says 25%.

If you are still in your "bulking phase" you can work in on one of my 3.5 hour leg sessions, those are always fun. I will be happy to post pics of my legs when I have them out to play on friday. Would you like pics of the hack squat quad shots with 6 plates on each side, or a simple standing pose? LOL! hit it hard and good luck!

Calves look awesome man. I can't wait for mine to start growing. What is your routine?

i agree calves are awesome, whats ur routine?

Justin Armor
02-27-2003, 07:16 AM
pretty soon they are going to have to start using hydraulic pressure and rare african elephants to increase the resistance on the seated calf raise, H-U-G-E! I know you must get sick of loading all those puiny plates on.

I didn't mention, but your chest looks very thick in the side chest pose.

thanks!!! i am trying... I think it is my weakness of my upper body. Most people that do the same as me on chest that i see in the gym, i can usually destroy them on back, unless they only do back once a month. but just something i noticed.
