hi guys, new member looking for some criticism.

last i checked i was like 5'8, 165lbs. pretty low bf i think, anyone got a guess? (know it's hard with the type of pics)

pics are a couple months old but i wanted some feedback anyway; i've gained a little leg size since then, back and arms are mostly the same, probably 1-2% less bf too. don't have a digital camera right now but when i get one i'll post newer pics.

arms are i think 14-14.5 inches, haven't measured in a while
calves are 15.5, best body part for sure, i'll get some pics when i get my digital camera back
thighs dunno i'll mesure them when i find a tape mesure if anyone really cares
don't know any other measuremnts, no clue about chest or forearms.

i dont know i thought my rear lat spread was pretty good for 16? small arms though, look pretty weak in the back double bi. my legs are pretty small still but improving steadily, they have gained quite a bit since then especially my calves. anyways please give me some comments on what to improve!

Looking very good for 16.... lat spread is impressive....... I would think you're in the low high singles to low teens in terms of BF%... Great work keep it up.....

looking good! i think ur about 10% give or take a couple, but it may just be from the shots and the angles they were taken at, but ur traps seem to lagging a little. hth.

thanks for the fast replies,

traps are definately lagging I think, but the thing is I don't know why they would be. I do plenty of back work: pullups, rows, shrugs, not to mention lat raises and military presses with shoulders.

the only direct work they get is dumbbell shrugs, should I try doing something else? any input is much appreciated.

You look good, but you don't quite look 165 for a 5'8" guy, particularly at that bodyfat. I suggest something to improve your chest a bit.

Deadlift's are your best friend for developing your traps.

Looking very good for 16, BTW. Back double bi is very impressive I must say.

you have great symmetry, you just need more size. Remember to hit the forearms, calves and hammies hard.

you have excellent muscle shape, a bit more lean size and you'd look wicked.

Let's see... haven't checked maxes in a while so I'll just post old ones but I just checked mesurements...

Right now biceps are 14.5 in
thighs 23 in
calves little over 15 in
forearms blow, like 11 inches or something I don't really know how to mesure them though
waist is pretty small, where do you mesure it with a mesuring tape? I don't want to give a mesurement until I understand how to do it properly.
neck is about 14.5 - 15

As far as lifts, last time I did barbell bench I did 175x10, I have done 225 before so I think now I could hopefully do around 235. Deadlift is in the low 300's somewhere, I usually do sets of 3-4 with 275 but the reps aren't really consecutive so I doubt I could do more than 325 or so.

Lifts aren't anywhere near yours but I'm working on it :D

You look very lean, man. Arms and back definitely look good to me. Quad separation is good, and calves are not bad either. Very similar to what I looked like at 155-165lbs. Keep eating clean and put on some mass. You'd look great at 180-190.

Development is coming along nicely. Id reccomend lots of barbell and dumbbell shrugs for the traps. Six to 12 sets once a week, heavy and for 12-15 reps per set. The traps seem to have alot of endurance and can take a nice beating. That worked really well for my traps. Also you can try training them multiple times per week as well. Traps,abs,forearms and calves seem to be unique in that they can be trained multiple times per week. If you hit them hard with dumbbell and barbell shrugs they should definately grow. You wont likely get enough trap stimulation from rows and lat raises, or presses. Youll need that additional work to really get them bulging out. Traps have always been one of my best bodyparts. Mainly from shrugging alot.

Walking Beast,

Thanks for the suggestions man. Used to have a hard time deciding whether I should do traps on back or shoulders day, looks like I'll just hit them on both days and see if I can get some growth out of them.
