I had a pic thread in here with a number of photos at various stages.. was going to add to it.. but.. I guess in the vein of storage.. the mods deleted all old threads...

anyhoo...

Well, managed to squeeze in a few shots today before my workout. The weather was beautiful in toronto so my workout partner Lisa suggested we go on the gym's rooftop balcony and take the photos. I figured for after bulk shots.. that wouldn't be so bad...

The first is a full body shot.. just in my workout gear.. nothing special but it shows the weight I've put on in the last while. Please ignore the chest carpet... Living in the great white north means that in the winter we do whatever we can to stay warm.. even keeping our fur intact... ;)

The next shot is the requisite front double bi. I would rather do these in the mirror to ensure the constipated smile is better and I have a better flex.. but.. not being pumped.. and no mirror.. this is passable. I'm happy with the size difference from previous photos.

This is the tricep shot... bad lighting.. bad posing .. but I my tricep is really my best muscle I think... can't see the definition due to the sunlight.. and the tattoo.. I turned too much from the camera.

This is the shot of my calf. It looks small but I like the definition and it's increase in strength... size will come.

This photo is of my quads.. getting bigger.. but not there yet.. tough on a long legs to get them to look big.. but.. I will

This is the back double bicep. I really like this shot.. due to the layer of fat, the definition is weak but the size is definately bigger than before. The biceps are turned forward.. I need posing help.

The last one is my favourite and one I think really shows that I have done some hard work. My lat spread.. not only does it show my lats.. but my traps and neck seem to have put on an inch or so.

All in all.. some sized gained I think in my last bulk.. though I've dropped 5 pounds in the last week. Hopefully not too much muscle went in the drop. I need some practice posing but since I don't pose alot .. it isn't all that important.. perhaps by the time I take the next set of photos my posing will be better.

Hope I didn't scar your retinas!

Miker I don't know your goals but would think you could keep clean bulking.

I've been thinking I should do that.. only problem is the waist area.. I can't get half my pants done up now. lol

So.. going to eat lots.. but clean.. periodize the carbs ala berardi and then go all out over christmas.. start a solid cut in Feb I think..

Thanks for the advice

you have some really really lean quads and hams for your dead and squat #'s.. i'd try to really focus on the legs if you continued bulking, including calves imho

You can say that three more times.. Seems when I bulk.. I get lotsa size in the midsection.. and I seem to gain the muscle around the traps and shoulders.. well... chest as well. but my legs.. holy ****.. I work them to death and nothing... I suppose they are a bit bigger.. I'm only 6'2" but my legs seem longer than normal.. lol. Going to take some advice from a great female buddy.. and continue to bulk.. and will take your advice and work more compounds so I hit the legs more and harder. Just as well.. my shoulder is begging for a bit of a break. Thanks for taking the time to critique.
