    you're upper body is well built, it looks like your lats and traps would be your weak point. how's your deadlift in relation to the rest of your lifts? what do you do for your back? Otherwise, looking solid.

    not bad

    Your back pose looked pretty decent to me. your lats flaired and it made your waist look smaller giving you a good v taper, I didnt see that from the front though. I think it is learning how to pose from the front to create the same effect. I think from what little I saw of them your calves could use some work. My training partner and I work them twice a week hard so it can be done. Good luck and keep up the good work

    Very solid and strong lifts

    upper body is solid, as u said your only weak spot are those legs, id just prescribe a large dosage of squats, front squats and lunge work, but other than that ur pretty solid

    dude this is so freaky. you look exactly like me (the face that is) in the first picture. when I ever put up my progress pics, we can compare them. I even asked my bro about this and he agreed lol. but anyway it's clear that your efforts have already begun to pay off and you're looking pretty buff already.

    Lookin thick man! I agree with Corey about the wheels. Front squats, 20rep squats and RDLs have done alot for my leg development and I recommend those, but besides that good work.
