Here is a "relaxed" shot of me. I don't think I have ever posted a picture of me not hitting a compulsory pose.

It is interesting to me that you can really see the reason I have trouble with benching in this picture. You can see my left (the right in the picture) delt is not nearly as large as my right. This is the shoulder I injured years ago and what keeps me from doing barbell presses with any appreciable weight these days. Interestingly enough it doesn't really effect my overhead press to nearly the same degree.

I have very little pump going in this picture as well so it is pretty much me in the raw.

lats are amazing man. Delts look prime too. The pic doesnt show a good representation of those arms tho. Looking great

Lats and traps are very impressive. The pic also shows your triceps off, too. At first glance, I didn't notice the uneven delts.

As much as I'd like to take that out of context, I will refrain. :p

Looking huge Chris, your lats are incredible!

Looking substantially leaner, Chris. It's almost like you might be up to something. ;)

Oh, I wasn't going there with it, although I can see why you might have taken it that way.

I just meant that you're probably scheming away about something. ;)

GRRR! Can you feel the HAet?! We're roughly the same height and weight, yet you look freakin' huge! (d@mn you and your big ol' swole muscles) :D

Hehehehehehe, having trouble keeping your arms to the side there, eh?

(Yes, I'm Canadian :) )

chris mason

Ok, per BC's request a COMPLETELY relaxed back shot. I have ZERO pump and am doing nothing but standing there.

I also attached an arm shot I took with ZERO pump to show their vascularity. You can never see it in most pics I post.

The shorts I am wearing have tight elastic around the waist and make me look fat, but what the heck.

bill
09-22-2004, 10:21 PM
Very impressive, are you still leaning out?

BigNic
09-22-2004, 10:29 PM
damn chris, tha is one vascular arm. I wasnt expecting that. what do they measure these days? Very impressive back, a relaxed back is prolly my favorite pic.

BCC

Crazy insertions there Chris. Those lats and traps almost dwarf your delts from behind.

Frozenmoses
09-23-2004, 12:04 AM
For real. It looks like someone stapled porterhouses to your back. Your arm is freaking swole as hell, as well.

SalahG

Both Pics are very nice. Your vascularity is quite impressive.

I haven't measured them in some time but I expect them to be in the 18" range.

Some of it is the angle Chase, I took another picture I didn't post where my delts looked a bit better. Here it is:

BigNic
09-23-2004, 12:48 PM
ya man, no hurry, but your next pic should be a back double bi. with your back and your arms that would look awesome. Have you ever posted one?

bill
09-23-2004, 07:57 PM

chris mason
09-24-2004, 07:18 PM

looking good chris. seems like you have been cuting as well?

biggimp
09-27-2004, 07:32 PM
wow. just wow. how much do you weigh? you look like at least a 200 pound beast.

chris mason
09-28-2004, 08:50 AM
Ohhh, the beauty of it all Eric! I have not been trying to lose fat per se, I just have. I chalk up the fat loss to the fact I train with much greater frequency now (every other day) and the supplements I have been using.

Between green tea alone and Thermocin I think the two have combined for a percentage of my fat loss.

I also truly think that E.T.S., and this is not something we as a company are currently claiming, has helped me to lose fat for directly and indirectly. Indirectly it allows me to train more often. Directly, I think it has an effect on fat loss. The mechanism of this effect is not known to me but I think it is real.

My diet has not changed at all during and I have lost at least 10 lbs of pure fat!



Gimp, I weight ~215 lbs at 5'11". I have a relatively small bone structure so I look like I weigh more than I do to most people.

Great shot!! I better stop slacking or you'll catch up to me! ;)
