I've been real happy with my progress lately and just wanted to get some feedback from you all. Build me up, tear me down, get jealous :D, help me out, whatever floats your boat. Critique away.

Edit: Doh! You might want some stats huh. 5' 10.5" and 217 lbs.

Edit again: Some links to my pics from August of '03, was 205 then.

Two more. One is of the wheels, but is also a full body shot of sorts. The other has my side kick jumping in for a posedown ;)

Great pics Bruteman!

You should link up some of your old photos. I think you've made a lot of progress. Managed to stay pretty lean, too. :thumbup:

Thanks man. Maybe no glaring weak points, but also no stand out strong points either. Well, I do have a killer left hook and straight right, my opponents might think they are strong points :D

Allyrulez
Thanks. My back has probably benefited more than any other bodypart from me starting to come to WBB.

bill
I hope so, but my waist line is telling me otherwise :p

Reinier
I try :)

staggard
Well look what the cat drug in, lol. Thanks bro'.

Max-Mex
And I almost cropped her out. She's just too cute though, I couldn't do it.

ryuage
Thank you SIR! *salutes superior officer* ;)

wibble
Thank you my Canadian friend. And I'm sure someday you will show me, just no time soon :evillaugh

Nice improvement!

Its very tought to tell where a person has "improved"
bf changes + lighting + pose + water weight = 2 tough 2 tell

if you want legit feedback on growth then look to the tape measure...it doesn't lie nor fluff the truth...

rather than lather you up with compliments I offer you some feedback (in order) that I would focus on:
traps/rhomboids, compared to your lats, these need some serious attention
abs, at your bf levels u should see them all clearly, it appears that they are underdeveloped)
calves, relative to your quads., are disproportionately small
spinal erectors/lower back, relative to your lats, look to be neglected
hammys, overshadowed by quad (possibly because of selected pics)
fronts delts are MUCH larger than side/rears

Thanks :)

geoffgarcia
Now that's what I'm talkin' about! I wish I had taken some measurements before, so I could see how they compare to now. All I have to go on is weight and pics though. I agree with you on everything but the abbs. They just don't pop out like most peoples. Even when I'm ready for a fight and my bf% is low, they just don't stand out. Everything else you mentioned is exactly the stuff I have been trying to correct. Most of them have gotten better, but are still lacking. I might try and get a decent side leg shot so it's easier to see how the hammies are doin'.

man you filled out a boatload! i think that even though you look a little less ripped, you look a lot better with all that new mass! good work man.

Rastaman

Wow, great gains on your back. You have an impressive amount of muscle mass, you're looking all around thick! Killer job man!

Thank ya', thank ya'!

Thanks bro'! I like the added mass for sure, but I want abbs d@mnit!

Rastaman
Thanks dude!

CanadianHomer
That's about what I weighed waaaaay back when I started lifting. Just be patient, you'll get there. Probably a hell of a lot faster than I did. I fumbled my way around for the first few years, you have a huge headstart on knowledge since you hang out here. Use it to your advantage and I'm sure I'll be seeing your pics of you at 220 soon enough ;)

Anything and everything can be attributed to deadlifts. :)

You are partly right. I believe other than changes in my diet, that trying to improve my deads, squat and to a lesser degree my bench, are a huge reason for my improvements lately.

Awesome job, filled out nicely. I don't know if its just me, but the added mass seems to make you look younger.

Love the pic with the little one.

Doh! Didn't realize someone had posted in here lately. You're just jealous cuz you ain't as preaty as me :D . LOL, if only that was what I ate. Alas, I'm an old married fart that can only day dream about being a young single male doing such things.
