That was on holiday when I was 14, I decided to do something about it (like push-ups), but only started bodybuilding about a year ago.
These were taken yesterday, I'm much more confident about myself now, and I am actually pleased that I have a fast metabolism where before I hated it. Criticism appreciated, thanks

Nah unfortunately its the camera :)

I dont tan easily but hopefully this summer it will be sunny enough for me to give it another go. I'm off to uni in september and I've applied for halls next to the gym, so i'm looking for more gains in the next year.

Precisely what im doing dude, it mightily blows being that skinny

I remember a couple of my meaner friends sometimes laughed at how they could kick my ass, or just be rude to me when i was a stick.. Now im ~45lbs heavier and dont hear that typa crap no-more





Ohyeah damn good work, very impressive

I'm 17 now, I didn't start doing any exercise until I was 15, but as I say that was only push-ups. I did them before I went to bed and repped until failure each time, started around 25 and when I finished with them a few months later I was managing 90. I realised I wasnt going anywhere apart from getting pretty good at counting

Hey, don't knock on pushups... :) What do you do now?

It was getting late here had to get some sleep, but my routine is generally as follows:
All sets are 8-12 reps, abs are done every other day

day 1: chest and tri's
incline BP 4 sets
flat BP 3 sets
decline BP 2 or 1 set depends how nackered I am
skullcrushers 4 sets
standing tricep extensions (not sure of the correct name) to complete failure

day 2: bi's, posterior delts & rhomboids
DB curls (I have no preacher bench so I just do it against my knees) 4-5 sets
BB bent-over rows 5 sets
DB rows with opposite knee on flat bench 3-4-5 sets (until total failure)

day 3: legs (I'm not a great fan of legs :idea: ) and obliques
squats 3 sets
quad extension (?) 4-5 sets
DB side bend 2 sets (I dont want to appear fat in that area, just a bit of definition)

day 4: anterior and medial delts, trapezius
military press 3 sets (sometimes I leave these out if my tri's are still sore)
DB side raises 5 sets
DB shrugs 4 sets
DB front raises 3/4 sets

day 5: rest

day 6: repeat day 1 etc.

Why don't you try WBB1, you may find you have better gains with rest days.

Good shape by the way, keep at it and keep eating.

Never mind i've found it! Looks pretty good I might give it a try when I start uni, I dont really have all the necessary equipment here at home, hell I dont even have a pull-up bar except the local childrens playground!

That's good motivation, since I was in the same shoes as you were, but am slowly making progress.

What was your diet like? How many calories did you take in per day?

Hey there Phlab, thats giong back a while now!! I wasn't really too knowledgeable about my diet when I was starting out, I just used to eat as much meat and eggs as I could, and guzzled down pints of milk every night. I was probably hitting the gram per lb sort of figure (145, 6'1" at that time!). I remember buying my first whey powder a few months down the line, It was "chocolate" but it tasted like I had just taken a **** in the blender, seriously! I'm far more conscious of what goes ino my body now, which I have to be due to a history of heart problems in my family tree.

how much do you weigh now?

Same height, now 12 stone (170?). Aren't British lbs slightly heavier than US lbs?

edit: UK and US lbs had the same mass as of 1960. 1 stone ~ 14lbs.
