My body fat is not that high, but I'm hoping its just to do with the pose rather than my genetics. Oh well, I'll gain another 50lbs.

get a tan bro, it'll help bring out your definition.

Don't worry about which head of the tricep is getting hit... They'll all get hit with a good tricep exercise.

You can't target a specific head with a certain exercise. I'm sorry to tell you that muscle shape comes from genetics.

of course. but i am not talking about shaping a muscle. each head of the tricep has a different function. the lateral and medial heads are only involved in extending the elbow, but the long head is involved in shoulder extension, and is also used in a pre stretched position like in skull crushers.

or so i'm told. i may be wrong because this information is basically all comign from a reply someone gave me on a message board (not always the best source of info).

Genetics plays the role in the shape of the muscle, you can only make the muscle bigger as a whole.

My horseshoe didnt start to pop out until I got pretty big, over 17" on the arms. Maybe you just need to wait until you are 200-ish before it will start to pop out. I noticed that your bench is only ~180 right now, so they probably aren't quite big enough yet. Just give it time, keep hitting them at the gym, they should come out with time & size.

Yeah I'm pretty sure I can see the horseshoe there. I'm sure if you add on a few more pounds it'll get larger. You can get a tan if you'd like but don't go overboard like some people do...
