wow very massive and well proportioned upper body, how do the legs look?

also what bodyweight are you, must be atleast 225...

05-27-2004, 04:00 PM
Definitely a solid build and looking really good.

I would venture to think 225 is way over his weight though given his low bf. Of course, I have no idea how tall he is either, so he very well might be that heavy if he's quite tall.

Either way, looking solid.

Traps and Chest are looking quite nice from what I can see. Well done, keep it up.

Looking decent. What does your chest measure?

05-27-2004, 09:03 PM
You look great man, I'd say about 190lbs about, and 10-12% bf.
In awesome shape so far.

:thumbup: Looking big there. The Traps and Pecs are outrageous. good delts and tris, too.

I'm 6'2" and 225. Thanks for the compliments. I have no idea what my body fat is, I have never been tested. The leg shots were under some seriously bad lighting, bad shadows. I've been working very hard on bringing up my legs. My calves are nothing to write home about, and I didn't have space to take a full leg shot anyway. I have never had much success with my calves. It seems very tall people always have trouble in that aspect. I have included a bicep shot to see what you guys think. I have very long arms, and they don't look big when they are just hanging at my side, but all that muscle piles up into a little ball when I flex it. Its kinda cool.

You have a nice physique.

05-28-2004, 03:22 PM
You're awesome. And you're right - that's a cool peak on the bicep. Very impressive. What do you measure there? I'm guessing 17"+.

Also, how much do bench, curl, squat, etc. - anything you care to share?

05-28-2004, 05:32 PM
That bicep pic looks weird, hehe. You look great, though.

05-28-2004, 08:15 PM
Looking awesome. Great chest.

pfft, amazing dude im 6'1" and 155 or so, and you are about where i want to be when im done bulking... nice job dude.

You look very impressive. How long have you been training?

I would estimate your bodyfat is slightly higher than 10-12%, but it's always difficult to tell with pictures.

Your actual peak on your bicep is quite unusual.

I've been lifting at my gym for about 4 years now. I was 175ish when I started. Now I'm 225ish. I've never done a bulk, cut, etc. I just take protein supplements and nothing else. I lift because its fun. I try to eat as much chicken and pork and steak as I can, and I consume as many carbs as humanly possible. I have a horrible time putting weight on unless it's muscle. As far as best lifts, I have curled 115 for 10, 135 for 7, I can bench 315, and I'm working on getting that up to about 350 this summer. I put the 120's up on the incline for 4 reps. I do flyes on the incline with the 85's for sets of 8. I shrug 425 for 3 sets of 9 or 10. For my squats, I do them on the smith machine and right now I could rip off a set of 10 with 375. For deads, my best with 405 is 7 reps. My max deadlift is 460, though I'm tall and I do them the conventional way, not sumo. I wanna get that to 500. I wanna squat 500 as well. I can do bent rows with 225 for sets of 12. And I'm very proud of my bicep peaks....If I keep training my arms hard and heavy, I think I could get a very freaky bicep peak. I don't know what they measure. As long as they are peaked and looking freaky, I'm satisfied. In many ways, I think I look stronger than what I am.

sounds pretty strong to me.

Impressive numbers! I find the curls and inclines particularly awesome.

Some people are blessed with the right genetics. You're obviously one of them.

nice work man...

05-31-2004, 10:49 AM
Strong build! Keep it up!

Homunculus, my arse! Nice work.

(For the non-Latinists, homunculus means "little man").
