View Full Version : Memoirs of a Newbie

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:
*please ignore the orange tint and blur, it is due to both flash and absence of flash

Front Torso (unflexed)


Side of Arm (flexed)


Bicep (flexed)


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

i can see you adding some mass on your frame
