5'11 @ 165lbs. (my goal would be 175lbs, maybe 180lbs).

showed also with different light setting for the critics.

p.s: last time i checked my body fat, was on one of those electronic thingies, where you hold it, for a certain time and it determines the bf%. not sure how accurate those are, but it said i'm 4.7%

P.S: MOST RECENT PICTURES ARE ON LAST PAGES.

You're amazingly lean. You do alot of cardio or are you naturally like this? Good Job.

Looking great antek. If I may make a suggestion, I think your arms could use a little more tricep to balance them out.

Good work, you must work your ass off staying that lean. ANd if you dont, at least pretend you do!!

its obvuis youve gotten bigger and added more weight yet it seems you didnt gain an ounce of fat, did you stay this lean the whole time? congrats, looks pretty intense, you really should start a journal

How much weight have you put on since the last pics?

bro your ****ing ripped, lol

you look like brad pitt from fightclub in the pose at the end.

im new here so i couldnt tell you if you improved or not, but if i were you i'de work out them traps dude. you'de look nasty with some thick traps.

JTyrell710
07-17-2004, 09:44 AM
yeaaa you really neeed to start a cut dude... 4.7%? i wanna see you at 3.1%-
uhh anyway you're lookin lean as hell, bigger than last time, and the only thing i noticed is that you really need to work your traps to comeplete your body. dunno bout the legs but if you got some traps you'd really look more complete.

BigNic

Nice pics man. I think I said this in your last thread, but if I were gay Id definately hit it :hump: :hide:

Wow, your abs, arms, back are still ripped, and now look "fuller", especially your arms and chest. I would have to agree with others though, your traps are lagging. Not that mine are that much better. And yeah what about legs? But man, really impressive, I've got a lot of catching up to do :)

How are you staying so lean and ripped while putting on weight? I appear to be same lean build as you but am a little shorter. I've gained about 5 pounds in past 2 months, most noticeably in my arms and chest, but its been at expense of bf. But you seem to have got a nice balance going?

kazzy: I play a lot of football, volleyball, swimming, soccer, almost every other day on the beach. :)

Scott S: i'm kind of happy with my triceps, I gotta take another picture of triceps, they seem to be doing well. thanks though.

FAngel: that seems galaxies far, far away. i'm lucky if I can look anything close to that at about 180lbs.

TripleP: I took leg shots before, they seem to be lagging a bit, but not as much as traps.

Allyrulez: there's this new pull-ups routine i read in men's fitness (not new, but it's new to me), seems to be working well.

bentkarnes: I am not sure if i gained any fat, i've been eating fairly clean, and i wasn't sure what my bf% before now was, so i can't say for sure, but thank you, I wouldn't be able to maintain a journal, as I don't usually post a lot on here.

Darcy Tucker: only about 7 lbs. but for me it was hard. so I'm kind of happy with that.

sh0es: that's funny, he is my inspiration to work out. thanks, yeah I'm working on traps.. they are coming along, somehow.

JTyrel710: haha, hey is it possible to have 1.5% bf? i read somewhere this ordinary dude had that much bf, and I was surprised. thanks man, yeah i agree with you on traps, gonna get to work.

Y2A: haha :) well good thing we are both rational heterosexuals.

rafe: depends on how you diet I guess, I'm always sport active, and eat clean, some days I only get to eat 2 times a day because of work. i think it took me over 3 months or so to gain what I gained. :) thank you bud.

Yeah, I'm caught trying to balance eating more to bulk and eating clean, the two don't really get along. You're lucky to still be active in sports, between work and personal life, I'm lucky to squeeze in some swimming or running on my break days from lifting. I was a hardcore swimmer growing up, that ended right after college, only 3 yrs ago now, seems like a lifetime ago though.

And I took another look at the pics, man those back double bi shots are sick, nice lats giving you that V shape. Just curious, what do you do for your delts and back? You have ok traps, they just look small compared to those big shoulders. If you don't already do them, shrugs hit them good, at least they do for me.

And dude, brad pitt in fight clud has nothing over you now.

.

its possible. but living would be a tad difficult seeing as how 3% bodyfat is ESSENTIAL BODY FAT... for someone to have 1.5%... they might have to have random bits of skin missing.. like their nipples :omg:

-sin-
07-17-2004, 05:19 PM
Yeah I think 3% of your bodyfat makes up your vital organs and what not. You might want to keep some of that.

Yeah, I definitely agree that you look better at 165. No offense, but I wasn't digging the skinny look that you had before. Keep up the great work. I look forward to seeing you at 180. That's going to be awesome.

McFerret85
07-17-2004, 10:47 PM
I think you've definitely gained some in the deltoids and lats. Chest is looking good and biceps look thicker. All around awesome job gaining weight and keeping your freaky cuts.

P.S. You said you gained 7 pounds since your last pics, but you probably actually gained 8 pounds of muscle since you lost a pound of hair. :)

HahnB
07-18-2004, 12:20 AM
Your shoulders look much improved. I agree some added traps would really make a big difference, they will on anybody but especially on someone as lean as yourself. I think you could afford to add 10 more quick lbs. I wouldn't worry about fat gain, it doesn't seem like you can keep any fat on you anyways.

Slick 25
07-18-2004, 01:03 PM
Antek, I always admired your dedication. How long did it take you to get to 165? You taking anything or what? You look amazing man, way better than Pitt in any movies of his. Nice work man, really aspiring. Keep it up. I wish i could get to where you are at.

rastaman: every now and then you know i always show up here.

mggeek: i said "sometimes" i only get to eat twice a day, key word is sometimes. all other days I eat about 4 times. yeah I was pretty much always lean.

idaman: hey if that fat ass jared, or whatever his name, from subway can do it.. i think it should be a piece of cake for any gym enthusiast.

rafe: I do shurgs once a week along with my shoulder workout, should I do it more? for my shoulder workout I do: 1. behind the neck presses; 3setsx12reps / 2. front laterals & side laterals superset; front laterals (8 reps) switch to side laterals (8 reps) x 4 sets / 3. upright rows; 4setsx12reps / 4. shrugs; 4setsx12reps.

JTyrell710: hah, sheeit, i need my nipplets, better keep 'em where they are at.

Saint Patrick: thank you dude :)

debussy: none taken, i wasn't diggin' it either.

McFerret85: haha, damn that hair. it was a lot too. so happy i got rid of it.

HahnB: a trip to McDonalds it is then. heh.

Slick 25: thanks man, sicne the last time I was here, I think it took me 3 months, from last update. I just drink Optimum nutrition 100% whey.. I don't take anything else. it's not hard to get where I'm at, just keep at it :)

i appreciate the feedback guys. thanks.

I guess you are right. I certianly have the drive and desire to do it. I also plan to work hard at it too. I just have to figure out a diet that will let me lose the weight without losing the muscle.

Thanks, and no wonder your shoulders are so ripped, all those laterals and then upright rows. My shoulder workout centers on presses like military presses and arnolds, I try squeeze in side laterals when I can and then only 2 sets. I think I may do more of these and add upright rows too and see how they feel.
Personally, I do shrugs on shoulder and back day, so at least twice a week, but hey man I'm still new at this, and looking at you I have no right giving you advice! Keep doing what you do because its obviously working!

IdaMAN: cut out the sugar from your diet, and leave a relative ammount of fat. drink lots of water. check with a personal trainer at your gym. :)

bricktop: the before pics wouldn't upload they are too big, when i have time to resize them I'll upload, or if you can find my older thread, they are in there.

rafe: eh, new shmew, post your progress and let people critique. i like doing 4 excersizes for each part, but i'm probably gonna start doing shrugs twice a week.

Jezmason: damn .. him.

HahnB: I actually don't do deadlifts, because i don't think I have the weight heavy enough for that excersize, but I'll try it. thanks.

JTyrell710: I'm really curious to know his stats when he was filming fight club, do you know them?

cphafner: he's a brick.. dun dun dun.. hOOUSsee.

bentkarnes & Allenronm: thanks guys, I had my routine up earlier, I don't know where that thread went. you can look for it, see if it's still up on this board. yeah I use 4 sets of about 8-12 reps for everything. almost.

Good improvement, Good lighting. The tan brings out alot of definition, and your lower abs look like they might have a little fat gain. Keep it up, you seem to have no problem staying on a tight schedule and should be at 180 in the shortest time possible. Your back looks most improved, but being that lean still makes you look like a stick at 165. Post some pics of the legs on your next improvement, and do some squats will ya? I think pitt was about the same size as you are now, I believe he is 5'11 and looks about 165 for FC. Maybe around 180 for Troy.

:/

Anyway, lookin pimp antek. You can definitely see the added mass. The fat-gain appears to be minimal if any in comparison to the gains.

The traps don't seem too bad, however they look somewhat smaller in porportion to your shoulders and arms, which seem to have gotten bigger imho. Shrugs (DB & machine) worked well for me personally.

Two words... f****** scary. :p

Grats.

Damn. Talk about some inspiration. Do you have any before pics bro?

I've seen Antek's last thread and he put up a "WAY before" pic. I don't know if he was working out at that time, but he looked pretty average, good for someone who doesn't work out. I think he then got ripped after watching his diet and working out (see his first series of pics), and now he's bigger and still ripped. Is this the story, Antek?

Great inspiration, especially if he was somewhat active in his very first pic, as it shows what really dialing in your diet and workouts can do.

antek
09-14-2004, 10:47 AM
Big J: going back and forth bet, 165 & 170. thanks man. :)

Sithy: appreciate it, but this is wannabeBIG though, figured all you guys would wanna look like ronnie or ruhl. ;)

ebrunner: almost true, I have been working out in my before pic, but it was on and off, nothing serious, doing random stuff and full body workouts when i felt like. after i got the program in check, things started looking a bit better.

sorry for the late replies. :thumbup:

You are talking about that single pic where you are in the Bermuda shorts, right? By the time you put up your first "series" of pics, you were ripped but skinny, if I remember it right.

Did you change your diet a lot to get ripped? How so?

Don't mean to grill you, but that first pic looks a lot like me right now, and I would be thrilled to make the same kind of improvement you have. I'm trying to pick your brains so I can make the exact changes to my program that you made to yours.

antek
09-20-2004, 12:40 PM
ebrunner : honestly I can't remember which pic you're talking about, is it when I had blond hair still?
I was on a strict diet, for about 5 months, after that, I've been trying to bulk.. so I've been slacking on the dieting. like many others said, what worked for me, won't necessarily work for you.

eviscerationx : chest is one of my main priorities, it's hard for me not to overwork it, because i want that motha to grow!

crussow : thanks bud :)

fixationdarknes : thanks, to reply to your private messege, since I'm here anyway, yeah I used to run, now I don't have time. I used to play basketball a lot, and this summer lot of volleyball and swimming.. pretty much all activities you can think of on the beach, jogging, football.

i posted legs in some other thread.. but I guess it's gone now, I don't wanna embarass myself again, haha.

I remember in your first thread you were ripped and had great abs, but you were skinny. When I first saw those pics, I thought that you simply had great genetics, and that was that.

However, later in the thread you posted ONE pic that looked like it was very old, before you got cut and before you had abs. I think you said it was before "Fight Club," and before you got the motivation to work out. The pic was probably some random pic that you had on your computer, and was probably from before you joined wannabebig.

I am wondering what changes you made to your workout/diet to go from that old pic (where you didn't have abs) to skinny and ripped. You made a huge improvement, and I'm wondering how you did it. Finally, I'd like to know what you did to go from skinny and ripped to big and ripped.

The one where my hair is all spikey and i got my hands on my hips? I think i know which one you're talking about, i had abs back then, they just weren't as visible.
I never said nor implied I was big, ripped, maybe, but I'm still skinny .. 167lbs..
but just hit the weights as often as possible, with rest days included of course and eat a lot. I'm cardio active durring the day, I play sports every other day, so I burn calories really fast, besides the fact that I have a high metabolism, that's where the lean look kicks in I guess. :)

stop being modest, your bis are a good size for your physique, imo. those abs are blinding me, you're one ripped stud. keep working the chest and traps, and good luck with your new goal, you'll be a huge beast at 190.

not in my opinion, but i do appreciate the positiveness. yeah chest and traps are the slowest growing parts, bleh.

Don't get me wrong, you have a decent chest from what I've seen. I've read chest development/shape depends a lot on genetics. I'm in the same boat, I have a similar frame as you with a chest that's also lagging other areas in growth, though I'm probably a year behind you in progress. I'm lean 5'10, 150lbs, yeah I know, skinny, but its a 10lb improvement since I started lifting seriously in march, with little noticable fat gain. :)

Once I finally invest in a digital cam, I'll post pics, I have yet to part with my "old" 1999 trusty 35mm cam.

And yup I know that bar, hoboken is a small area. Interestingly, there's also a 'bar none' in the east village near union square that I used to hang out with my ex gf when I lived in manhattan. You're in brooklyn right? which part? I have two friends in brooklyn (williamsburg and prospect park areas).

Well I'm not gaining much weight. i guess just balance the diet and keep up with the cardio.

Don't get me wrong, you have a decent chest from what I've seen. I've read chest development/shape depends a lot on genetics. I'm in the same boat, I have a similar frame as you with a chest that's also lagging other areas in growth, though I'm probably a year behind you in progress. I'm lean 5'10, 150lbs, yeah I know, skinny, but its a 10lb improvement since I started lifting seriously in march, with little noticable fat gain. :)

Once I finally invest in a digital cam, I'll post pics, I have yet to part with my "old" 1999 trusty 35mm cam.

And yup I know that bar, hoboken is a small area. Interestingly, there's also a 'bar none' in the east village near union square that I used to hang out with my ex gf when I lived in manhattan. You're in brooklyn right? which part? I have two friends in brooklyn (williamsburg and prospect park areas).

haha, leave that '99 camera behind, it's a fossil.

Hmm not sure, i've only been into lifting for a short time, and lost time during injury so i'm not the best person to say if it is or not. Seems this time around i'm making faster progress though, changed from a 3 to 5 day split seperating certain compounds from isolation lifts by 3 days to save overtraining, but it seems to be goin well. Chest gets hit on Monday(chest/abs) and thursday(shoulders/tris) so i guess that would account for my gains.

Damn I wish I was that lean. I think if I lost 15-20lbs of fat, I would look similar to you. With smaller shoulders but bigger chest. :)

Your shoulders are HUGE for your size.

Look at my profile. Where you ever close to as "fat" as me.

I want to be about 10% something thats not too hard to maintain. You look like <5% that just seems like it would be superhard (for me) to maintain. (if I could even ever get that low of BF)

chris6969 : well the fact that I always was a really skinny kid, I don't think I would be able to gain much fat now even if I wanted to.. my dad was a gymnast, so perhaps the genetics play a good part in what I look like right now. also, most recent picture i posted is totally the light's fault.. about how the abs look :)

my ab routine is nothing special. I used to do weighted crunches, leg raises & leg lifts, now i just do regular stuff 2 or 3 times a week.
4 sets of 12 reps concentrated crunches.
4 sets of 10 reps concentrated leg lifts.
that's about it.

12-04-2004, 07:01 PM
JTyrell710: I'm really curious to know his stats when he was filming fight club, do you know them?

Somewhere between 155-165.

You're there, right here, right now. You just don't have his face, not that we care.

You have a build that's similar to mine.....basically small-framed with narrow bones.

These guys are right.....at 180 and ripped, you WILL look like a badd-a** mother, especially on film/pictures.

One trick that Pitt uses in his recent films, is that he's got ultra-fitted clothing, especially in Ocean's Eleven. You can't buy button-down shirts off the rack with a standard cut and fill them out with his frame.

If you're a lean guy, there's no shame in wearing fitted shirts. I tried an Arrow brand button-down shirt a couple years ago, but my chest (my strong-point) made it look like I was showing-off, like some Chippendale's dancer or something. Although I was still carrying more bodyfat than you are....

If you're like me (5'11", 175 with noticeably more bodyfat), then you look smaller than your workout pals when wearing a t-shirt, yet *better* than them when wearing a tank-top. The key is the ratio of "puffiness" in the back /front of your shirt, compared to the size of your sleeves.

Majestic
12-04-2004, 08:14 PM
it just really seems like a delusional superficial kind of thing to consciously think about and actually aquire skills for... i mean... puffyness of shirts lol..

I'm going to dial-down my typical intensity here, and spare you some pain.

I'm going to assume you've never worked for a corporation, or that you're nowhere near Antek's stats.

If you've ever had to wear a shirt & tie, and you're a thin-framed & lean guy, you know that most business shirts are tailored for a "business" cut, or even an "executive" cut.

When I started my first (post-grad) job at an office of 2000+ people, I was easily one of the 10 youngest there, and it was incredibly difficult to fill-out any part of my office shirts other than the chest and shoulders.

Business-cut shirts are tailored for middle-aged men with back fat, and a gut. Antek has neither.

Next up: dress shirts. For a lean, "less bulky" person, which is what Antek is, at 5'11" and 165 lbs., he may (or may not) need a "fitted" shirt, or "sport cut" shirt. If you had his dimensions, you'd probably understand that regular cut button-down business shirts (and sometimes dress shirts) can make you look less fit than you really are.

These shirts can be bought in any major department store. Some brands use the term "athletic cut".

Rastaman

Are there any brands that you recommend? I've been having the same problem with the business shirts that I'm required to wear at my firm. The shoulders, chest, and arms are always fairly tight while the waists of the shirts are waaaay too big. Essentially they're tight up top while being baggy around the waist due to the normal "gut and back fat" of most business men, just as you described.

Majestic
12-04-2004, 08:35 PM
Could you elaborate on that? I'm not sure whatchu mean.

I was merely elaborating on being 6 ft., plus or minus an inch, and weighing 165 lbs.

At those stats, you're probably tall enough and broad enough to warrant a larger man's shirt, but not fat enough to fill it out. That's all I was saying.

It was something I didn't encounter until I became a professional.

Apparently Antek does. He wants to look like Brad Pitt did in "Fight Club". That particular "look" is also the milestone that a lot of young girls (not necessarily "women") look to as a standard for male hotness.


And hell no, im not the corporate type.. im more of a freedom bum type of guy with no desire to produce money by inslaving my self.

You'd be surprised. While my ultimate goal would be to act as my "own boss", and own my own business, the reality is that while there's a higher degree of autonomy with your schedule when you own your own business, there's also a ton more stress, and many, many less vacation days than the 10+ vacation days you start out with as a 22 year old at General Motors. And that's not counting the 2 weeks (paid) you get off during Christmas. You do the math.


and yeah im a lean less bulky person my self but that don't mean im gonna learn how to wear clothes... i have nothing to prove.

Great. Good for you.

I don't have anything to prove either.

I just happen to like the way I look in a silk shirt better than the way I look in a white Budweiser T-shirt. Maybe it's the sweat-stains......

Damn i never knew they made shirts for us less filled out guys. Thanks for the info Majestic :cool:

No prob.

Hey, here's a better way to summarize what I was trying to say:

Almost everyone that frequents these forums probably looks buff when wearing a short-sleeve Polo shirt. They fit snugly against your arms and chest, without carrying extra baggage in the stomach, back, and sides.

However, there are a few of us who don't have the dimensions to fill-out an adult male's standard-cut business shirt, or sometimes even a dress shirt.

In those cases, you may need to wear a fitted shirt, or have your shirt tailored to fit your physique. Sometimes shopping at a trendier store will do the trick, since those clothes are geared towards image-conscious males.

That's all. Period.

As it pertains to Antek: Brad Pitt weighs next-to-nothing. He looks sharp in Ocean's Eleven because his shirts are tailored for his "streamlined" physique. That's it. It's not rocket science. Snug (but not tight) against the shoulders, arms, and chest, and trim along the stomach and back.

I'm trim through the back & stomach to the point where I could wear a Medium dress shirt, but too wide and too thick in the chest to do so.

Thus, when I started in the office place, wearing your basic-cut Men's Wearhouse business shirts with a tie and all, I looked like a walking pillow case with arms, like I was parachuting or something.

Alex.V
12-04-2004, 09:55 PM
I hear that. Try being forced to wear a uniform shirt. 50-ish (not sure) inch chest/back, 31-32" waist... A shirt that fits my shoulders is a god damn mu-mu. A shirt that fits my waist tends to have sleeves that barely go past my elbows.

So yes, we feel your pain.

And it's not even about showing off, to those that are still thinking that. When you get to certain proportions, a typically cut piece of clothing just doesn't look good. It doesn't look professional. It looks like you're wearing rented clothes. A good-fitting dress shirt shouldn't be tight, but it should drape according to the lines of the body. If the body is athletic with a wasp waist and broad shoulders, the shirt should be designed as such.

And yes, trendier stores will tend to have perhaps less traditional clothes, but they'll often fit more athletic builds much better.

I'm pretty sure yeah, on electronic scale I'm 167lbs now, or regular scale I'm 175lbs. so I figured I'm 170lbs right now, give or take a few pounds.

Somewhere between 155-165.

thanks man, the whole fitted deal I got a while ago, at the store I work at A&F, they make some of their shirt 'muscle fit' which you call 'ultra fitted', so i'm pretty much set. But when I was saying I want to look similar to him I didn't mean in a shirt. Nevertheless, I picked up recent 'Fitness RX' with Nick Auger, and his physique tops Pitt's , and I'm jealous. haha. I'll attach a few pics if you don't know who he is.
Appreciate the detailed opinion though buddy. :)

I might have missed a post here and there, but just wanted to say that I'm not going for strength, due to the fact of what kind of field of work I'm in. When you look good, you have good confidence, self esteem and pretty much a good reaction from people. That's all I want. :)

That guy in those pics definitely is bigger than Pitt in Fight Club.

This is a sincere question: is it not cool to have lats when you're a male model? I mean does it literally mess with the fit of the shirt? Maybe he's just not flaring his lats?

lol, i don't think that would be a problem, if you have lats, fine.. if you don't it's okay too. What I think clients stay away from are people with big trap development. Not very model-ish looking.

just so there wouldn't be any missunderstanding. he's a great dude and I look up to him, by posting his pics I was simply stating that he tops Pitt's physique.

I agree with you man, I think it tops pitts physique, looks more muscular while still looking lean and fit, both have great physiques though, you too man, good work I had one of your pics as a desktop as motivation so thanks for that, but while bulking I removed it, i didn't want to be reminded too much of my rapidly disappearing abs..
Keep up the good work and keep posting pics to help motivate man, take it easy!

I'm going to dial-down my typical intensity here, and spare you some pain.

I'm going to assume you've never worked for a corporation, or that you're nowhere near Antek's stats.

If you've ever had to wear a shirt & tie, and you're a thin-framed & lean guy, you know that most business shirts are tailored for a "business" cut, or even an "executive" cut.

When I started my first (post-grad) job at an office of 2000+ people, I was easily one of the 10 youngest there, and it was incredibly difficult to fill-out any part of my office shirts other than the chest and shoulders.

Business-cut shirts are tailored for middle-aged men with back fat, and a gut. Antek has neither.

Next up: dress shirts. For a lean, "less bulky" person, which is what Antek is, at 5'11" and 165 lbs., he may (or may not) need a "fitted" shirt, or "sport cut" shirt. If you had his dimensions, you'd probably understand that regular cut button-down business shirts (and sometimes dress shirts) can make you look less fit than you really are.

These shirts can be bought in any major department store. Some brands use the term "athletic cut".


I am also one of those blue shirt wearing corporate whores. the regular business shirts (arrow, polo, geoffery beene, van heusen) have baggy shoulders and straight cut (waist is almost as big as the chest).

banana republic, kenneth cole, thomas pink, paul smith make some good tapered shirts with straight sleeves. they also make relaxed fit shirts that you dont want.

most european labels make fitted, tapered shirts. But too fit and designer shirts might encourage 'special' men to hit on you.

LOL, I guess I'm one of them blue shirt wearing corporate whores too. I've noticed the difference over the past year in how my shirts were fitting around my chest/shoulders, as my slow but steady bulk continues. At first I was happy to experience this, but wearing some of my favourite shirts became uncomfortable and now I'm having to shell out the extra $s for the "fitted" shirts :cry: . Oh well, the sacrifices we make to better ourselves and please our loved ones :D

And Antek, looking at the halloween night pic on previous page, your awesome physique continues to fill out man, chest and shoulders got decent size, and you still have those ripped abs. Hate to say I'm jealous, lol, but its true! :bow: and its good motivation.

Nick Auger is also good motivation, but he's a cover model and you're not too far away from his physique imo, he's just got more muscle mass I think. Keep it up dude, and soon you'll be like "remember when I was jealous of nick auger?"

Wow Antek, you've got the kind of body I'm aspiring to.
I think we have similar natural builds, small waist broad shoulders etc.
Funnily enough I've got pretty big traps, with smaller delts, whereas you've got the opposite, perhaps we could trade.
The annoying thing is I'm bulking at the moment, so my narrow waist isn't so narrow anymore. In the summer, when I was doing loads of cardio, I got it down to almost 28 inches (I'm 6'4") with a 40 inch chest. It's 31 inches now, but my chest is almost 45 inches. I hope I can still get it down to 28/29 inches again.
What's your waist size? Do you do any oblique work?

damn man, 6'4 and 28 waist, must have had a problem finding pants that fit.
When I first started working out I was 28 waist, now I can't fit into those anymore, but it's probably because I got older and grew from aging, not gaining fat, now I'm 30. I don't do any oblique work usually, but if I get tired of the usual ab routines I'll do hanging knee raises to the side, that's about it, not any direct oblique work.
I'd take the big traps anyday, my puny things won't grow, they refuse, hehe.
Good luck to ya slimming in the waist buddy. 8)

it doesn't really matter who you talk to about cutting, if they know anything, they'll all tell you the same thing "cardio, diet". Just move around a lot, play sports as often as you can, and pick up new hobbies.
thanks man.

He's right, esp. now (winter time and all) my diet is ****, I eat anything, even fast food if I have to, desperately trying to gain few pounds here and there before spring break, but it doesn't affect me as much because I prob burn off more than I need a day.

Yeah I loved it there, I stayed at this hotel called 'Ponce De Leon' or something like that, and only got to go out once, it was really awesome though I checked out Wet Willy's, Martini Bar, & Dan Marino's (I think that's the name of it).. had a blast.
I didn't get to go to the beach though, one day I shot near the water, along some really long bridge. But yeah, beautiful place, beautiful weather.. and the women aren't so bad :)

Anyway, I like your approach. You got ripped first, then put on muscle. AKA23 has also taken a similar approach, and also has achieved great results. Most people start from "skinny-fat" and bulk--really just getting fat, and when they cut up, they lose muscle and are right back where they started. Your strategy seems to have been more effective.

So, my question would be, how did you go from skinny with no abs to skinny, but ripped? What did you change about your diet/training, etc?

NY is allright , 70 % single thanks to "Sex and the City".

It wasn't by choice that I started off from skinny ripped, only because I was always active, I ran a lot back where I'm from, was into gymnastics, martial arts, played sports religiously (soccer mostly), that and high metabolism kinda left me with no choice but to stay skinny for good chunk of my life, heh.
Since I started working out though I just started eating more & working out on a regular basis, that's about it.

damn, you looked big at 165. You look good man. Just a side note, pitt is 6 foot tall and weighted between 155-160 during fight club. So your a hell of a lot bigger then him. Even in Troy when he was at his biggest I read he topped off at 168. So you've managed to go way past your origional goal.
Really? I doubt Pitt was 155, where'd you read that, everyone says different stats, and in Troy only 168, no way he looked way bigger.
But thanks anyway :)

I've read it in quiet a few places. I have heard from many sources that his weight was 155-160 (also he has very thin legs in fight club, ive seen training pics). I also read 168 for troy and hes said in interviews that he put on 10-15 pounds for troy, so the math works. I stive for his physique as well so i looked this stuff up. He just has a small build and light bones. I have a very simlar physique to you and pitt. I'm 6 foot 160-162. I look a lot like you when your were around 160ish. 8 pack with 14.5 inch arms, prob around 5 percent body fat etc. Many people say I look 170-175 but I guess I dont have a naturally heavy build. bone structure plays a big role and can be deciving when it comes to weight. That why i was suprised you want to get to 190 when you want to look like pitt who is 6 foot 155-160. But like I said you look good at 175 so keep it up if you like.

Look at these pics, youll see what i mean about the skinny legs. These are fight club training pics. I actually got these from another thread on this site. I also read from the director of troy that they had to use a double at some points when it came to his leg shots in troy.

yea for some angles it was need but not all, apparently. They are still much bigger then in fight club.

heres one of the clips where it talks about the leg double

Brad's Achilles legs
Producers of Brad Pitt's latest flick Troy have been forced to call in a body double after discovering that the Hollywood heartthrob's legs were too skinny.

Brad, who plays hero Achilles in the epic film about the Trojan Wars, is dressed in a leather shirt and boots for most of the action.

However, the man considered by many to be a perfect specimen has been replaced from the waist down with a leg double, reported to have 'thighs like tree trunks'.

A fellow actor on the 110 million movie told The Evening Standard, 'Brad's a great guy but close up his legs were just too thin.'

Achilles is the Greek mythological warrior who was eventually shot and killed in the heel, his only point of weakness.

Casting agent Sarah Dickinson, of London-based Casting Collective, said: 'It's quite common for body doubles to be used in filming.

'Actors learn to take these decisions on the chin. Who knows, Brad Pitt might have asked for a body double himself.'

Troy, directed by Wolfgang Petersen, also stars Orlando Bloom, Eric Bana and Diane Kruger and is currently shooting in Morocco.

Anyway since I forgot before here are a few pics that I forgot to post last time.

Looking absolutely ripped and shoulders esp look good- I think genetically you and pitt have very similar muscle shape in general.

hey man,

I know our situations aren't exactly the same, but I just wanted to say you're an inspiration for me. I've been sick off and on since December of last year and I'm really scrawny right now, but I can tell that you and I have similar bone structures. I used to get disappointed alot, thinking my frame would never hold very much muscle, and my wrists and ankles are pretty skinny, but seeing you add the weight makes me know that I can too. Bulking has been my biggest problem so far but now that I've seen pics of someone who's making it happen it makes it easier knowing I can make it there too.

Antek, looking amazing mang. The first thing I noticed with the new pics is how much bigger your traps look And those delts are insane!

Congrats on hitting your goal weight - too bad about getting sick. There was a nasty flu that went around my gym in Jan and you would see guys disappear for a week to 10 days and then return 10 to 15 lbs lighter - all muscle loss.

Bi's look huge in the pic of you doing a DB curl. I'm sure you'll get the mass back in no time.

BTW how tall are you (I'm sure it is in here somewhere, but I can't find it...)

Here's a pic of me from a little over a month ago, think I have potential to be where you're at as far as overall physique? http://img141.exs.cx/my.php?loc=img141&image=dcp00026pn.jpg

Hey man,
Well I'm really flattered by that, anybody can shape their body anyway they want I don't see why you can't do the same, I'm still not anywhere near where I want to be, and don't worry about it, my wrists are still skinny, lol. :)

Aww you guys, lol I'm just an average joe, but makes me happy people see me as inspiration, I am not big at all, or anywhere at a level where I want to be yet, especially with the recent weightloss, so thanks for the kind words and motivation. :)

Yeah I improved in the chest a bit since I last posted here. I think you deffinetly have a good build, don't know why you would want to be like me overall, I'd shoot for Nick Auger's physique as a goal.
Diet is crappy I eat three times a day only, with few shakes along the way.
Yeah now since the spring came and the weather is at it's best I'm outdoors all the time, rollerblading, playing ball. :)
Keep up keepin' up, man.

you already beat me in terms of being true to the site, you're bigger at over 6' & 190lbs, and you're only 19, I'm gonna go cry in the corner now.

Gah! the shoulder routine.. mmkay, I might overdo mine, so I don't suggest you follow it, but here it is.

I do shoulders & back on the same day.
Wide grip pullups / 3 sets of 15.
Lat Pulldowns (behind the head) / 3(or 4) sets of 12reps.
Seated cable rows (with a bar) / 3(or 4) sets of 12 reps.
Front Military presses / 3 (or 4) sets of 12 reps.
Standing cable rows (with a bar) / 3 (or 4) sets of 12 reps.
Alternating front db raises (8-10reps) without rest followed by Alternating side db raises (8-10reps) / 3 sets.
Shrugs on a machine / 4 sets of 12.

Antek you do have very impressive shoulders.

However I don't think there's anything original or special about his workout guys. It's about as ordinary as shoulder workouts get.

His shoulders are a result of good genetics and so on.

Doing that workout instead of any other standard shoulder workout, isn't gonna' give you any different results.

I think genetics play a big part in the body development as well, I hear a lot from people that my shoulders are too wide for somebody of my frame.

I do barbell presses.
Chest routine doesn't look like much,
pushups, incilne bench, machine press, db flyes, machine flyes.
