I am in a bulking phase right now. I am 5' 8 and 195. I am bulking up to 220 then cutting down to a bout 200 with 6-9%BF. At least thats the plan.

traps seem to be lagging a slight bit (but may just be me cuz i like huge traps), and to make the front or back double bi better, flare ur lats a bit more. where're the legs?

You're a monster. You definitely have a football player's body. Everything look svery well balanced from what I can see. Are your legs as big as the rest of you?

Played ball 2 years ago for a school in nebraska. My legs need some work but they do even up to the rest of my body. I will post some pics soon of them. I know i really need to bulk my chest and lats up. I think my arms are okay, 18 inches.

That's what I want, right there. That. Looks wise. Awesome work man. Whats you're routine and diet like?

bigomaha
03-31-2005, 05:24 AM
Really routine is only 4 days a week, and it varies on how i feel. If i feel strong on bench, then I pyramid. If it is a bad day on bench then i work the isolation movements, pec dec, flys, ect. Same goes for other body parts. I figure why force you self to do something your body is telling you it doesn't want to do.
m =chest
w=arms
f=back shoulders
st=legs

As far as diet goes, its just smart dieting. Eat 6-7 times a day, eggs, lots of fish, non processed meats, vegs & fruits, protien shakes & peanut butter. I stay away from all fast foods, candy, soda, processed meats.

Great build, but if I were you I would have my tape measure checked out because I have seen alot of 18 inch arms and that ain't it. Giving you the benefit of the doubt they are maybe 15 inches

You don't think 18? I'd say they look like it. Anyways they look big to me.

They would look 18 on a guy that is 6'2" or 6'4" but not on a guy that is 5'8" don't get me wrong they do look powerful.

bigomaha
04-02-2005, 08:58 PM
Big Eric. I will send you a pic with the tape measure around them. 18 I promise. I don't need to lie about my size. By the way were are your pics. Bet you got the big 18s. right......?

Sidior
04-03-2005, 12:51 AM
I dont think they are 18 either, but way more than 15"...I would say somewhere between 16-17"

and lookin great man:D....chest needs work though

huge arms. looking very good overall! :thumbup:

BIGERIC

sorry to offend you. im just going by my experience on what I have seen and from knowing that alot of people exaggerate on here. I guess you can say my arms are 18", my right is 18" and my left is 17.5" so an average of 17.75" thats cold and flexxed .pumped they are 18 5/8"(right arm) but I wouldnt count pumped. I am 6'4" 240 with higher body fat percentage as you.I am guessing between 18 and 20%. After I bulk for another few months I will work on the bf. dont get me wrong as I had said in the other replies you do look powerful.

At his weight it would make more sense to have 18" arms on a 5'8" frame compared to a 6'+ frame.

bigomaha - looking good bro. you have the build of a Linebacker, just make sure you tape up the nip piercings or take a chance in getting them torn off.

Man, looking pretty good. I'd actually say traps, lats and pecs are looking pretty good, that's just 'cause the arms aren't really cut yet... Keep workin'.

If you think his arms are only 15 inches I highly doubt you've seen a lot of measured arms.

I would have guessed about 17" arms, but I believe ya at 18".

Need to catch your chest up to those big guns.

shansen008
05-13-2005, 12:49 AM
I believe the 18" arms, i think you were paying too much attention to his biceps. Keep in mind that looking at the last pic, you can see he has very thick/wide triceps. That does a lot for the circumference of your arm. My arms are built the same way as his, there are guys with 16-17 arms in my gym and their arms look bigger than mine because their bicep stands out more. Mine are actually an inch or 2 larger though, mostly due to my tri's being well developed.

Football players focus a lot on pushing movements as opposed to pulling, so this shouldnt be too surprising.
