    Progress Pictures "Yesterday and Today"

    I have these posted in my journal as well but they seem to get buried in all the "clutter" so I thought I would post them here as well.

    What you see is about a 20lb difference. The picture on the left of each photo is me at 132lbs and the right is at 152lbs. I never really noticed how much the left side of my upper back/trap is lagging until after looking at these photos, Yikes! Anyway I am about 5lbs heavier since the right photos were taken and I am still gaining. Hope to put on another 10-15lbs by the end of January. Guess I will post again with that progress. Check back.

    Yes the tan does indeed make one look more attractive, especially one in my condition. No more collar bone action, man I hated that.

    I thought I would always be satisfied with about 175 but as I gain the transformation is revealing that I will still be a skinny b@$#@!d at that weight. I always knew I was small but I didn't realize exactly how small until I actually started putting on some pounds.

    Haha you're telling me. Good thing is I have decent genetics as far as the shape and features of some of my muscles. For example, nice peaked biceps "run in the family" so to speak, lots of definition. Just need to give that definition a boost with some solid size.

    I thought I'd be happy at 175 too. Now I just weighed in at 188.1 this morning and I'm still far from happy

    Keep it up though, you'll get there eventually.
    22 - 5'10@236lbs!
    Bench - 325 (old)
    Squat - 455x2 (old)
    Deadlift - 500(old)

    Total: 1280lbs 100% raw




    The key to my exercise program is this one simple truth: I hate my body.

    Thanks for the comps guys. I have lifted in times past and put on weight but never like this. Something just feels different about my workouts. I know for sure one thing that has helped is I quit being a sissy with my working weight. I always took it too easy on my lifts. Enough of that I said and boom! Heavy weight, lot's of food and even I can get big, well bigger. BIG comes later

    That's a very positive change... keep doing what you're doing, i will advise to keep going slow with it! I used to be skinny and then i was advised to eat just anything that came in my way i gained 55lbs in a 3 months... stretch marks, fat everywhere you name it lol but then i did a long slow cut and now im on a long slow bulk and loving it! So get those calories in but keep it clean and the totals over maintenance by a few hundred cals.. Good job!

    good work

    spend some time eating and lifting heavy now instead of worrying about abs and chiseled pecs. you'll pick up some seroius mass the next 5 years and enjoy it the rest of your life, as lean as you want to be
