View Full Version : Couple new ones.

02-06-2005, 08:11 AM
I've started a new five day split that I'm going to run for eight weeks. It's the first time I've really made a detailed plan and consistently tracked my progress. Took these pictures a couple of weeks ago; not very good, but if you want better you could always spring for $200 and buy me a digitial camera.

Height is 6'2"ish, weight is somewhere between 190 and 200.

mike pics don't look so clear ! but from what i see you look great wow!

02-06-2005, 08:22 AM
I know the definition on the pics suck, but so does my webcam.

Thanks for the compliment!

Nice job bro. :thumbup:

02-06-2005, 08:28 AM
Thanks Fen.

Nice job mike just keep adding some mass.

02-06-2005, 10:26 AM
Big and lean from what I can tell. And at 6'2", you could be a monster with more mass.
And lol, I'm with you on the digital camera, my old non-digital cam works just fine so I have no incentive to shell out $200 for another.

pretty good!

looking good man

02-06-2005, 11:56 AM
Lookin good man, thick arms on ya wide back, everything looks good but in my opinion chest would look better a bit bigger still looks great though mate, keep up the good work!

02-06-2005, 01:07 PM
Thanks guys. Still a long way off from benching 495 on the decline. Or even 200, for that matter...

Is your torso as lean as it looks, or is that just camera-phone-ness?

02-06-2005, 01:46 PM
My torso is very lean; here's a picture from about two months ago, and I haven't added any fat to the area.

02-06-2005, 01:50 PM
wow once again mike ! great abs!

02-06-2005, 01:54 PM
Looking lean.

How are your legs?

02-06-2005, 02:16 PM
Legs are good, such as they are. I should just put this in my sig because I have to explain it so often: serious accident when I was younger, left leg significantly smaller than right leg. I did legs today. Squat 325, plate loaded leg press 640 (I could do more on each if I was doing fewer reps). I'd post a leg picture, but it's sort of a pain in the ass to take one.

Just to comment on what Irish said: my chest is weak, and I don't know why. I sort of think it's because I started from nothing and had to build up, but it's still always been a sore spot for me. It's been a real gradual process to build my chest up.

Naturally lean, or cut?

02-06-2005, 03:17 PM
Very nice definition there. I don't think your chest is that bad. I'd actually say that you should get some more width on your shoulders. Incorporate more direct delt work and you'll be set to go.

02-06-2005, 07:15 PM
Looking real good...

02-06-2005, 08:52 PM
Thanks Clinto. Love to see some of your pics, since we must be sort of similar.

02-06-2005, 11:10 PM
looking lean...nice side tri

02-07-2005, 01:11 AM
looking good..keep it up

02-07-2005, 12:16 PM
Guido -- my shoulders aren't great, but I think that my chest lags all else. My bench is sort of weak, and I really don't have a lot of mass there.

02-07-2005, 12:16 PM
Thanks Gabrielle and 500squat.

02-07-2005, 01:31 PM
Dam...im 6'2 195....wish i was that cut!
You shoulders look to be lacking though
whats your BF% and age?

02-07-2005, 02:17 PM
I wouldnt say you have a bad chest, infact it looks good, but I think the rest of your upper body ie arms and shoulders are great and bringing your chest up would probably give the appearance of a more balanced physique.
However I dont know many people who would be unhappy having your physique mate :)
Good luck with the progress and yeah quality abs too like someone else said :)

02-07-2005, 06:48 PM
Yeah, thanks. Still (and not to harp on it) my chest is my weakest upper-body point, if not my overall weakest area. Although apparently my shoulders need some work, too.

If you don't have goals you might as well stay home, so I'm glad to have some weak points.
