Alright guys! here are the update pics. I last posted pics about three to four months ago and the general consensus was "work on your back". Thats exactly what I have done and I really appreciate you guys pointing that out for me. This bunch of new pics are basically me attempting to strike some poses, not sure where I got them from, complete with a variety of "LOL" stupid expressions. Feel free to have a laugh at my expense. ;)

Also feel free to offer me any advice/criticism that you have. The lighting wasn't the best and I promise to have better pics in another three months.

Back Pics:

Side Arm Pose. No idea what I'm doing, just striking poses. (http://members.shaw.ca/weenog/pete/pete6.jpg)

Front:

Most Muscular (http://members.shaw.ca/weenog/pete/pete9.jpg)


I just started cutting about two weeks ago, lost my little tummy and am now getting rid of those stubborn little lovehandles. I think another three to four weeks and I"ll be ready to bulk again.

I'd really appreciate some feedback, especially from people who saw my original pics. My main concern is symmetry, I want all my bodyparts to be in line with each other. Thanks guys.

You look a lot fuller now then you did with your last pics. Arms look like they are a strong point. Back looks like it's coming along, although I think you can still improve your lats in order to have more of pronouced V taper. Other than that, lookin good mate.

I added roughly 8 lbs in about two and a half months and then began trimming off the fat just over two weeks ago. I definitely upped my bf % during the bulk by at least 1.5% but after just two weeks of cutting, that 1.5% is gone. I definitely think it was worth doing a quick bulk. I plan on cutting down for another three to four weeks until I'm about 10-11% bodyfat and then bulking again from Sept to December. Next bulk I'm planning on gaining at least 10-15 lbs, but I'm going to do it much cleaner (I ate a lot of crap during the last year).

Thanks for the compliment!

I'd have to say great job. You look alot fuller throughout your entire upper body. I'm excited because I've never actually dieted down and then "bulked" before, so this fall will be my first real attempt at eating clean and huge so I can gain some size.

Congrats on the job well done.

RuLess: Thanks man. Usually I workout three or four days a week on a day on/day off split. Lately I've been doing chest/tris, back/bis, and legs/shoulders days. As for diet, when I'm bulking I usually just eat whatever and just make sure I'm getting alot of protein. After this cut I'm going to do my first ever 'clean' bulk.

cphafner: I just saw your pics man, damn you're lookin pretty good. Lookin really lean and chest looks deadly.

Manveet: I've been hammering my back with a vengeance every week. I've been nailing lats at the beginning of every back workout for the past three months, wide grip chins followed by wide grip pull downs followed by rows. They're definitely growing but they're growing slowly. Hopefully I'll have them where they should be in another 6 months.

Mystic Eric: :cry:

SoulOfKoRea: I appreciate the compliment, but I don't appreciate you getting me hooked on Tae-Hwan.

Supirman: I've never actually "dieted down" before either, this is completely new territory for me. I'm not doing nearly as good as you are, but I'm pretty satisfied with the results so far. I'm hoping to put on some serious muscle in my next bulk, maybe one day I'll be 2/3 as strong as you, you freakin beast. :thumbup:

I just compared the two back pics, you've made some very good progress for three months. Back looks a lot thicker now, good stuff.

Rastaman - if you become 2/3 as strong as me, you'll be one strong Mofo! lol. I've always been really strong, but not all that big for the weights I put up - at least I don't think so.

Keep bangin the weights, that's all there is to it.

Word. Lately I haven't really been training for strength, been doing higher rep sets and really mixing up exercises. I think that'll change as soon as I start bulkin again.
