View Full Version : New shots @ 235

02-01-2007, 10:16 PM

Took these yesterday, and tonight after back. Let me know what you think. I'm currently bulking, 235 lbs, with an eye on 240-250. I'll try for some leg shots in the next couple days (haven't taken those in a long time...eek).

Your lat spread made me say "Damn!" out loud.

You have a nice lat spread. BF% is getting up there, but you look real good. Chest owns!

Jordan, Pepsi, Stumprrp, Sharkall: thanks guys, much appreciated.

I'm 6'1, Stumprrp. BF is up there, but bulking's traditionally been so hard, I actually kinda welcome it because it'll fall off for the most part without much effort when I stop, so I don't fixate on it too much.

Last night, for a change, I did midback work before lat work, starting with some rack deadlifts. I have to admit, I don't think my lat strength fell off that much in doing those second, and I like how full I feel afterward, so I'm going to leave that order for the next few weeks. See if I can add more bumps to the landscape between my shoulderblades.

dont worry about BF dude, IMO if you are still in decent shape theres no need to worry.

how are the numbers?

Nice chest - from that alone I can't believe your bf is over 15%.

What kind of training do you do for your traps?

02-02-2007, 07:48 PM
lat spread is looking great, buddy.

Rookie: Thanks man.

Dante: I don't do much beyond deadlifts when I DO do active trap work. Shrugs sometime. I actually like doing the Calf raise shrug cause grip isn't called into question. My trainer friend Joe who worked with Matt Burzacott doesn't believe in specific trap training; he says if youre working your rows and your deads and your delt presses, traps will come as part of the bargain.

Must-eat: Thanks man! I need to embody your name more.

Rock-steady: I don't worry about bf, it's probably more like 20% if I had to guess.

Teufy: Why, Jimmy Hoffa, as I live and breathe, you're ALIVE... (PM me when you get a chance; it's been way too long and I'm entitled to a Happy Holidays from you...:-p)
