View Full Version : Guido's Pics 12-04

12-21-2004, 09:31 AM
These are some before pics that I will use for future comparison. These were taken yesterday (12/20/04). This is after 3 months of serious lifting (I lifted on and off before that and did lots of cardio). I've been bulking for the past month. Pre-bulk weight: 146lbs. Weight as of 12/20/04: 153lbs.

Please comment/critique and let me know what I should be working on. Thanks.

You've got a great base there. Your shoulders are pretty wide and your waist pretty small. Your legs also look like a strong point. Keep at it. I'm sure you'll keep on packing on the weight.

Thanks, ectx. Yeah my waist has always been small. I usually have to get my pants in the boys section to find one's that fit (I have a 30" waist). Damn fat americans!

Rofl @ curling dog, I thought this was another name for most muscular or 'the crab', none of which I knew before I visited this site, so i was expecting this to be another name for it until I saw the real little dog...classic

you look pretty good for 153 pounds, once you add some more weight you'll look mean dude. Ace!

Thanks, Rocket. I can't wait to pack on some more mass.

looking good. Start making some weight gainer shakes. Stock up on natural PB :D

12-21-2004, 03:00 PM
I have been drinking protein shakes (about 2 a day, always 1 after a w/o). I'm getting about 3,500 to 4,000 cal per day plus over 1g/lb of bw of Protein. I'm allergic to peanuts so PB is out of the question. Is there any other food like that that anyone can suggest that's cheap and easy to eat?

Hey, I have the same problems as you. I'm also allergic to peanuts and fish, so I got this stuff called SoyNut Butter. Tastes like peanut butter, but is made from soy in a peanut-free factory. It also has the same nutritional benefits as natty PB with no trans-fat. I'd say its easy to eat, and its calorie dense. I thought it'd help you out a bit.

looking good...I would say you should work on gaining overall size...over time your traps and chest will fill out...shoulders will get wider..quad sweep will develop..nothing really stands out...I mean that you don't have any body parts that overpower any other body parts...you look in proportionate overall..which is a good thing...just give it time and muscle maturity will kick in...seperation...hardness and vascularity will improve...you look great for only 3 months..keep at it...good luck

Thanks so much for the comments and encouragement, guys.

Zearoth: I'll have to try that soy-based stuff out. I'll look for it next time I'm in the store.

You look very proportional just keep on doing what you're doing.

12-22-2004, 10:04 AM
You look like you're on the right track man keep up the good work.

your biceps look amazing for 3 months. i need to try some dog curling of my own :hello:

12-22-2004, 12:19 PM
Awesome size and definition for 3 months. Still looking like pretty low bodyfat % too.

Lol at Hickory. If you are going to incorporate the Dog Curl into your w/o, you should get a bigger dog. Dog's are great for helping to work the core stabilizer muscles because they tend to shift and move around a lot.

TTT: Thanks. The definition has always been there, but the size hasn't. I have worked out before, though, just not properly or consistently until now.
