I honestly can't see much difference between the 2 pics. The good thing is you don't look to have gained any bodyfat so you must be sporting some new muscle somewhere. Did your leg size increase dramatically?

Well that's a very solid improvement then. You do look bigger, I just would have thought that 27 lbs on a 5'9 frame would be a lot more pronounced.

I am a little bit fatter :)

But when you spread 27lbs all over the whole body, then it's not that dramatic I guess

I definitly see a difference in your shoulders.

I see it in your chest. Overall, you look a tad bigger. Not trying to belittle your gains or anything, you still look very good. Progress will look even more pronounced as you continue to add mass, keep at it.

Hmm, it honestly doesn't look like 27lbs, especially considering you have small joints and frame, but maybe it's because your body fat has increased, like you said. When your bf is 16-20% it's harder to see the size increase. Anyway, good job, getting bigger. Maybe time to shed some fat? When you start gaining at a lower body fat you'll get more LBM gains.

Yeah everything looks a little different. Hard to believe that its 27 lbs. Good work, though.

Blitz, you are the victim of b.s. advertisements... I can see a big difference in your chest, shoulders, and traps. The people who say they don't see a difference is because they are used to looking at Muscletech etc. ads which show these dramatic changes in people. Unfortunately, the ads don't mention that the people are juicing their brains out, and gaining back muscle they purposely lost.

A 27lb gain with a minimum of bodyfat is great.

Now, you have posted other pictures where the difference was less noticable, but in this picture, anyone should be able to see the difference.

I agree.

Your bodyfat looks like it has barly changed and yet your shoulders, traps and chest look significantly bigger.

Shoulders have definately come on, lets see a back pic though i have a feeling that your back has come on from then by the way you talk about it, that may account for quite a few of those 27lbs

keep it up blitz :thumbup

I agree as well with Mason, Rob and Ron. I can really see it in the delts, which are wider and fuller now. The front delt is showing much more then before. Your chest larger and deeper, arms are larger and those legs are really looking great. Great work.

First of all, I want to take nothing away from Blitz, and that was never my intent in either of my first 2 posts in this thread.

That being said, Mason, I'm not comparing his transformation to a Muscletech ad. I'm well aware that Muscletech transformations are b.s. I also agree with you that a 27 lb gain with minimal bodyfat gains is great. However, have you ever heard of the 10 lbs per inch theory? (The one where for each inch taller you are than someone you have to have 10 extra lbs on your frame to be comparable.) I'm not saying I believe this is completely true because there are a variety of factors that affect how you look in comparison to someone else, ie., frame, where you carry the bulk of your muscle, etc. Just using that as a ROUGH guideline though, I, being a good 2-3 inches taller than Blitz, would need to gain considerably more than 27 lbs to see the same body composition change he did. To be overly conservative, let's just say I would have to gain 40 lbs (the number should be higher in my estimations, but we'll leave it at a conservative estimate). All I know is that if I gained 40 lbs, with minimal fat gains, there wouldn't be doubt in anyone's mind that I got considerably larger.

There may be flaws in the way I'm thinking, but I know from experience that a 5-10 lb gain on a shorter person is very noticeable, whereas a 5-10 lb gain on myself, or others of a similar build, is ALMOST negligible.

Vido, I think we need to see what you look like. That might help me, and others, to understand your viewpoint. If you are around 6 feet in height, a 27 lb gain in mass is absolutely huge. To say anything else is stupid. Now, I think he has added more mass to his lower body, but the changes to his upper are obvious.

Blitz,

You look alot bigger man - but of course, I see the most pronounced change in your legs, crazy : p.

His arms just went up a little over an inch, but his legs went up almost 2 inches. Now if it supposedly takes 10lbs of LBM to add an inch to your arms what does it take to add almost 2 inches to your legs. We are seeing just the smallest bodyparts from blitz in this picture. This arms, chest and delts. Now if we could see just how much his back and legs grew then we might have a clearer understanding. To add mass like he did and still add minimum bf is very good. It doesn't appear to be quite 27lbs but I don't doubt that it is. Especially with his routine focusing so much around leg strength and explosion.

With all that said you also have to consider the frame that all the mass sits on. I'm slightly taller than blitz but my frame is tiny. If you compared me now to 20lbs ago you would almost have thought it was 40lbs. Put 20lbs on someone with a large frame and it takes a more trained eye to see the results.

How tall a person is can be deceiving until you take into consideration their bone structure and size.


All that said... nice work blitz!

I've said from Day 1 on this site that I will not be posting pics...that's just personal preference.

I'm not trying to argue here, but I think you missed my point. A 27 lb gain in mass IS absolutely huge, even at my height. It is an even greater accomplishment at Blitz's height. That's why I would think that the gains would be more noticeable than they are. I've looked at his pics numerous times now, and each time I see more and more improvement. At first glance, I saw a marginal difference. Now I see fairly substantial changes, but NOT 27 lbs worth, that's all. I think the biggest problem is that a rather large portion of that 27 lbs was added to his legs, which are quite impressive, but they were not included in the original pic.

I don't want to take away any from your progress either man, because 27 pounds in a year is absolutely phenomenal all natural. It's just that I'm also 5' 9" 153 pounds and all the guys I've seen who are 5' 9" and over 200 are huge as hell. Keep up the good work man, like I said, 27 pounds in a year is amazing.

I don't see a 27 pound increase, however it would help to post a full body shot showing a frontal and back shot. Your arms aren't that much bigger in the pic but your chest, trap and shoulders are much bigger. As for fat gain, I see some in the abdominal area. You are making a great amount of progress each time you post yor pics. You're making asians all over the world, proud.;)

Pro, the people who can not see your progress are blind. You look to be much bigger and at about the same BF level. Keep up the good work.

All I know is that last year in May I weighed 80kg, and now I weigh 94kg - and my strength is just about doubled in everything:)



Ok guys rear double bicep which shows most of the upper body muscles. Pics were taken with different cameras, hense the slight differences in lens look and colour balance.

Big difference there. Your neck, lats, and trap are all much bigger and thicker.

That second pic does you a lot more justice Blitz. Your back and shoulders look like they've grown quite a bit.
