There is a lot of views, but no responses. Hey tell me it str8 up. If its bad tell me. Only way I grow.

Not bad at all. Perhaps some background information on yourself? Training experience, stats, ect would help.

Have been training for a while. Was a wrestler and football player in high school, went to the Marines, came back. Been losing weight and muscle on and off cause of the military. But hoping to compete in 2004.

Can't see crap except you have calves. Your traps are decent, but the rest is prety much impossible to tell from the horrible angle of the picutres.

It is hard to tell based on the pictures. In fact, if I were to be bold I would say the measurements you posted and the pics do not coincide. Take some better pictures and make sure the measurements you have given are correct. If they are, then it looks like you have a great base based on the number alone.

Yeah the calves could use some work but then so could mine. lol! Not bad though. You definately need to take some better pics bro so we can give a more accurate opinion.

Take some better pics please.

Those measurements don't jive with the pics I see here.

Looks like everyone agrees for me to take better pics, and for the stats there all accurate. Ill take some pics with tape measures around everything. Hey thanks alot of the opinions. More to come then.

Well from what I can see you need some work on both the calves & the back. With the pictures, you sure dont look like what you say your stats are. I weigh 198pounds during powerlifting season & a lot of people compliment me on my chest & especially my lats. My chest is only 49.5" & that with my lats flexed. I'm 5'11" so I'm not much taller than you either...

Yes. Get them shaved for sure.

Again thanks for the comments

Mik: Yeah man got to lose those black socks forgot to take them off in that pic.

Big J: Of course I need work, Im not competing in stage yet, but bro stats are dead on accurate. Good for you if people are complementing you on your progress. Have a beer for me today.

PizDoff: Dude I cant believe you remember that thread. But yeah need to shave them for sure.

Hey thanks you all for your comments. I will post my progress pics. Hoping to compete in Summer of 2004 in Miami.
