Hey guys, Ruffian and I took some more pics today. I wasn't planning on posting them until I looked back at some pics from last year around this time... These photos (http://64.191.89.25/showthread.php?t=74549) were taken January 31, 2006.

Here are the ones we took today:

It looks like you are sporting more mass, a new tat, and some attitude. Must be the synthol!

But seriously, nice work in all areas, especially those legs.

Awesome progress man, way thicker than before.

It looks to me like your arms may be lagging, I'm not sure though. What do you do for them?

Lookin good bro. Just wondering, what are your stats in these pics?

Height/weight, any measurements you've taken?

Not trying to be dramatic but did you run a cycle?

You look like you gained 50lbs of pure muscle.......absolutely huge...Great job!!

8.8 - Thanks! My legs have exploded in the last few months!

Brogain - It's definately the synthol :cool:

Stepto180 - I'm not playing anymore. I was running a league for kids ages 13-18 ... We just had finals on December 17th. I played for the Regina Squids... We travelled all over Canada and won nationals in 2003 :)

Hockey66 - I'd rather hear that than they are over powering the rest of my body! I've been doing a westside routine for the past month so they've been getting a fair amount of direct work but before that I pretty much tried to avoid arm work... I gotta say that curls are my least favorite of all exerxices.

Stumprrp - Thanks bro! If only I had known what you do at your age!

Chub - It's just cuz she's got tits :lurk:

J3ff - Sorry, should have included that... I'm 5'9" and I'm around 185lbs right now. The only measurement I've taken recently is bodyfat. With a 7-spot caliper test it showed me to be about 10%. I always think that the calipers are a little low though...

Jordan - Hehe, no I didn't run a cycle. But thanks for the big compliment!

Sidior - Thanks! But seriously, it takes work even with the synthol :strong: hehe

yea man.....your back is really looking sick.

yea man.....your back is really looking sick.

Thanks again Jordan!


Do you guys think 10% bf is about right? Like I said above, that's what the calipers said but I feel like it's probably a bit higher...

Edit:
Wait.. ****... It may have been 11 or 12.. I'm not sure anymore... Maybe Kristen remembers and will help me out here :windup:

Lookin solid man. As for 10%, I'd probably say more along the lines of 12%. Definitely still lean though, great work.

legs and lat spread look great.

As hockey said arms could be lagging slightly i have the same problem myself my biceps stink.

Id put your bf at 12-14% id say close to mine but i havnt measured myself either so.

quads and back are crazy. I like the deadlift battle scars :D

deeder
12-27-2006, 03:16 PM
Jay - That's kind of what I was thinking too.. And thanks!

Hill - Thanks! I'm not too concerned about my arms right now. Strength is where it's at for me so proportions are not really a big deal. Looking good seems to be a side-effect of my approach to powerlifting :p

Evan - Thanks! There's a couple scratches from deadlifting yesterday but all the scars all over my shins are from when I skateboarded... I was never very good at flip tricks and whacked myself in the shins alot :p

The scratches that are from deadlifting are some of the first ones I've ever gotten... My university is closed over Christmas break so Ruffian and I went to the Gold's gym in town. When they were building it I saw a pamphlet that showed their floor plan. It looked amazing and HUGE! But when we got there it was really disappointing... One power rack, one squat rack and all the machines a curl jockey could wish for.

I'm pretty good at keeping the bar just barely touching my shins so I get some red marks but never scratches. But the Gold's had octogonal plates (I think.. I didn't actually count the sides :p). Usually when I deadlift I set my feet where I want them, set my hands where I want them, then I roll the bar forward a bit and straighten my legs, then I pull the bar back towards me and drop my hips real fast. I've never looked where I stop the bar before I lift, it just kind of happens naturally.. Anyway, I couldn't set up like I was used to and ended up either having the bar to close too my body or too far away on every set :(

I'd say you are at 12% right now. Looking good though.

Cut down to 7-9% and ruffian will have to beat the girls off of you...

McIrish

Honestly, solid back, Deeder. You can tell that you've put a helluva lot of work into it - I think the back dbl bi is your best shot there, closely followed by the lat spread.

Do you have a character that means "very" or "real" on your wrist, though?

Looking good Deeder. Major changes from your previous pictures long ago...

deeder
12-27-2006, 07:31 PM
McVein - Thanks!

Jordan - I'll just be maintaining around this weight until after natiuonals so I won't be doing any cutting anytime soon. Hopefully I'll be around there just through body recomposition.

McIrish - Thanks! and yes I do. I was told/read that it could be taken to mean true or truth as well.. Real, true, truth... Those were all ones that fit in with what I was looking for..

ArchAngel - Thanks! It's crazy looking back at old pics! It's hard to notice progress day by day.

Lmao, the goofy face made me laugh.

You look heaps good man! Id kill for a body like that.

'Any powerlifter with abs is a gay porn star on the side'

:p you sure as heck dont fit the classic PL physique, you look crazy and lean.

SHAVED HEAD RULES!

deeder

Hehe thanks fuzzy! I've got a terrible fake smile. So if Kristen's not doing a good enough job making me laugh I just make funny faces until she gets irritated with me and gives me **** and it makes me laugh :)

I can't say I'm in the gay porn star category, although I am a porn star of sorts:moon: :dj:
