My first pics..I just wanted to clear this up, ive been working out for nearly a yr i was sooo tiny before but i have never worked out to look good i work out for power and explosion because of football..it looks in the pic as if my chest is lagging but i weigh 170 roughly and i bench 290..im 18, 5'11, 170 as stated above, dont know measurements and i dont care yet..after football season im going to start trying to thicken out.. Legs are excluded due to knee injuries and i dont want to flex my knee brace..enjoy and critique me !

Dude, your chest is not lagging. I would tell you it is a strong point. Great width

Yeah, Id say chest and delts look strong.

At 18 you're looking like you have a strong base to build upon man. Good Job. :cool:

for not being a bodybuilder that's pretty good man...

Man, you have a great physique to build on if you ever decide to take up bodybuilding. Good chest and traps. Good job man!

You've got a nice build, like others have said, your delts and chest look like strong points.

Looks like someone has very good genetics.

Just like everyone else has said: chest and delts look ace!
I would suggest you focus on back more. Some more tickness would compliment chest and delts.

Keep it up.

ight will do as soon as footballs over..plus a local guy wants me to box for him..hes goin to the toughman finals and may go pro to fight on HBO's fights and ****..soo back work would just compliment my punching power

I cant believe you said that your chest was lagging. Maybe if you put the effort you put into your chest training into the rest of your body, the rest of it would be 'lagging' as well, if you catch my drift. I'd pray that my arms would lag like your pecs.

Add some weighted crunches and hard work to your arms and back, you'll do quite well to even that all out and look great.

shet, your chest is mofo big :eek: .. hehe

yah i agree that ur chest and delts are strong points...

Whether you lift for looks or power you are still doing the same exercises, if you are training correctly. The difference between the two is that bodybuilders tend to focus on diet more extensively than powerlifters or others.

For instance, working your back will help you with punching power, stability in football, etc. At the same time, it will build your back in much the same way as a bodybuilder would build his back.

Just so you... the two aren't mutually exclusive. Why not kill two birds with one stone?

Nice strength with the 290, and make sure you are eating a ton for both football weight and to help build some mass.

Also, you're head looks really big. ;-)

Every one has said it really well. Arms look strong, not huge. The pecs and delts show good development. On the back the upper back trap area looks good for your size and goals.

To help one must also point out what they feel does need improvement. Considering your goals and football, I would suggest more lower lat and lower back work... Dead lifts and Good mornings etc. All in all for having no goal toward bb at this time, you are looking good.
