your pictures aren't working..please do not jump into anabolics after only such a short time training...give yourself at least 4 years of training naturally before crossing over...otherwise you will be wasting time, money and effort

01-08-2005, 12:48 PM
it says i have to sign in to see your pictures, so i can't see them

01-08-2005, 12:53 PM
ok try clicking on the link again now...

Gabrielle - i want to compete in the juniors next year at 20 and they nearly all take roids in the EFBB events and i only want to compete natural once because i want to be a freak. anyway theirs no time like the present ;)

01-08-2005, 01:01 PM
At 19 you are old enough to decide what you want to do

IMO you should stick at it natural for a couple more years and see where you end up, I dont think it would be juicing etiquette to needle up at 112lbs.. At least work up to 180 or something

01-08-2005, 01:02 PM
Oh, great pics, you are super lean (back double bicep pose is killer)... And yeah the pec vein is cool :)

01-08-2005, 01:24 PM
You look good, but maybe TOO lean.

01-08-2005, 01:32 PM
Welcome Steve. Good to see another person from England on the boards

01-08-2005, 01:53 PM
hehe Fangel - i thought this was a UK forum at first but nevermind - It's a cool forum! and American people are more genuine anyway.

Thanks for the comments guys!

What would you say my body fat % is? cos i dont have any calipers or the likes.

01-08-2005, 02:16 PM
You're definately in the single digits in terms of body fat. Maybe 6-7%???? I dunno?

You should start bulking.

01-08-2005, 02:25 PM
Do you post on MT as MuscleM4n?

01-08-2005, 02:28 PM
lol YES! whats your MT name? aww i want to stay and read up about bodybuilding here but my friends forced me to come out clubibng with them now :cry: nah its k :rolleyes:

01-08-2005, 02:32 PM
Lol, I thought so. I post as Franco over there

01-08-2005, 02:51 PM
you look good. eat more. you should bulk. what about your legs?

01-08-2005, 03:13 PM
You seem to have good proportions to me. Nothing seems to be lagging. I would just work on gaining some overall mass.

01-08-2005, 08:23 PM
112!?! look a little bigger...

01-08-2005, 08:24 PM

Dont' take the steroids yet, you can gain alot more weight quickly and naturally if you track your calories and everything.

01-09-2005, 12:32 AM
I gotta agree with the others. Eat like you mean it for a few years and build a base then take that next step. I'm not being unkind but no amount of juice will get you ready to compete seriously within this year. No point in jumping in too soon. Do some reasearch, you'll be glad you did.

You are lean as hell and have a lot of potential, just keep bulking and you will make great progress.

01-09-2005, 08:01 AM
alright guys....

AdmiralDan - the legs are in my pics now too :)
i added them in now lol was out clubbing last night so i couldn't tense my legs properly cos was raving all night and all morning!

BigE54 - iam 116/118lbs not 112 :p

Smalls - yeah i agree with you mate but iam going to enter an NPA event this Summer which is for naturals only (drug tested) so most competitors will be more defined rather than having a lot of size + its the juniors.
BTW your not being unkind, i dont mind. I need the negative comments to see were i need to improve. :)

Anyway i just want to experience competing thats all - even if i come last it will just give me more motivation to train harder. i want to compete now cos it will be easier for me to get a trophy if i compete as a junior cos once i get past this age its a whole new ball game!

01-09-2005, 01:18 PM
I'm glad you didnt take my comments harshly. You have a good attitude bro, and I respect your desire and balls to compete. Keep at it.
The picture site is making me log in again, could you fix that so we can see the legs.

01-09-2005, 02:00 PM
LOL my bad..., Look good though

01-11-2005, 11:11 AM

01-18-2005, 07:39 AM

nice abs

02-24-2005, 01:23 PM
Listen, even if you take roids and don't eat or train properly, you're not going to see the gains that others see.

Its nice to be so shredded and it allows you to appear bigger than if you weren't so shredded, but if you want to compete you have to put on some serious size. Even if you gained 20lbs of pure muscle mass, the guys in your class are still going to be bigger/weigh more. So basically you have to put on 40-50lbs and cut back.

I personally think its dumb to roid after only training 6 months - 1 year, even 2 years. You'd see much better gains if you just ate.

Yup Eat and Lift!! Add more muscle!!
