Any way here are the pix.

I eat enough but why lift heavy? My friend that I work out with recommends 8 to 12 reps for me?

Why lift heavy? <----<< 'cos it's the only way to get bigger, and you clearly don't eat enough to grow musscle as your body fat is so low.

8 to 12 reps is quite a lot. Aim for 5-8 reps; you have to damage musscle tissue to make it grow, just moving your arms isn't enough.

You have a very low body fat - well done, but I can tell you don't lift heavy just by looking at your arms. They are quite thin. If you want to grow musscle you need to lift heavy. Maybe you're quite content with skinny arms, if so keep doing pussy weights and high reps.

Well my goal is to get little bigger but stay very lean. I am going to get a complete check of my bf% and weight today.

you look like you're flexing your traps in every single picture. in my opinion it just looks funny.
p.s: ripped fuel didn't do squat for me. i've used it for maybe 3 weeks or so. not a slightest difference, maybe only works for people with good ammount of fat to burn.

eat man :/

do a clean slow bulk to help limit fat if your worried, or at least make it easeir to reburn off.

Personally, i dont like the pics. Your looking starved and skinny with bones a hanging :confused:

Well that's cause your body fat is pretty darn low. Yeah I also think my traps are funny. Thanks for the opinion though.

I think your traps look funny because your shoulders are lagging. Add some upright rows and laterals along with your military's. Your traps and shoulders should balance out in no time.

:thumbup:

BTW: what's the final goal? Runway, Ripped, or Fitness cover?

Danpiel

Will do that. Goal Is ripped and a runway. I really would like to see me ripped but not big ripped. If that makes any sense.

Not a look most people on this board are going for but, if you are thinking Runway then you want to stick to a more cardio-vascular type routine. In fact, with the new trend your chest might already be on the big side for the runway models today. Stick with challenging (but lighter) dumbbell workoutsand circuit training, rowing machines are great for full-body cardio . Keep away from oblique (twisting or side) movements when doing abs, since obliques actually do grow and can make your waist look larger. Reduce calories and cut, cut, cut. It is all about low bf% and defined, long, "rope-like" muscles.

How tall are you? to pull off the runway thing you need to be 6' at least or else you just look puny. Also be wary of the emaciated druggie look which is just a hair width away from the runway look.

good luck.
:thumbup:

Personally, I think you would be better off gaining about 10-15lbs of LBM, concentrating on shoulders, arms, & chest. (I assume, like all of us your legs and back probably need work too). That is going to give you a better package if you are trying to get into the modeling biz.

I am 6'1 with 8% body fat and weigh 170lb. Well I want to look ripped. Meaning I don't want to flex to show of my body. Yeah I kinda agree that working on just my arms, Shoulders and chest will overall make me look better and thats basically what I am doing right now. My work out consists off 4 days gym and 4 days hardcore basketball games with friends. PLus I surf and skateboard a lot too. I eat very clean. Lots of fruits and veggies and protein shakes. I also want my abs to look really really :omg:


Will post my total diet and you guys can tell me what I should change or add.

Thanks.

What exactly are rowing machines? Also LBM stands for Lean Body Mass?

Danpiel

Oh almost forget my back is pretty decent but my legs are really small. I will take some pix.

Offical name is an ergometer. They have a sliding seat and a flywheel upfront attached to a cross bar. It is to simulate skulling (long skinny boats with really long oars) It is a good overall cardio workout.

Don't go and just workout arms, chest, and shoulders - that is a bigtime rookie mistake. I suggest you focus on those bodyparts but don't negelect everything else. Including legs.

Also solidify your goal in your mind - what exactly do you want to achieve. Runway and :omg: abs are not the same thing. Take a page from Antek's book: find a pic of the exact body you want and stick with it until you achieve it.
