as indicated above, i am a newbie (this is my first post after all). here i'll be posting up my pictures as a "record", so to speak, for my own self-comparison. any suggestions, constructive criticism and/or opinions are certainly welcome.

at the moment i am 20 years of age, 5'9, 138lbs and god knows what percentage bodyfat. only now am i set on following a decent lifting routine/plan, as most of the past year has been a half-assed on and off thing for me (i am a university student after all). now i understand that i am by no means a "heavyweight" (nor do i aspire to be) and clearly carry an "ectomorphic" physique, however, i will try to gain all that i possibly can in lean muscle whilst remaining properly proportioned to my body in the following months(?) years(?).

My (starting) pics:

Bicep (flexed)

as for now, i'm thinking i should best concentrate on increasing the pectoral muscle mass and probably my arms as well.

Best,
Matt
