    Long time reader, 2nd time poster with pics.

    I've been visiting the boards for quite some time now, and have finally decided to introduce myself. I did actually post once a long long time ago when I actually had an answer to a question!

    Here I am

    http://www.picturetrail.com/gallery/...568&uid=591203

    Ignore that one non-gym pic

    photo was taken last sat. weighing 180ibs at 6'3" yup I'm a stick

    Backround:
    Most I ever weighed was 192. I got freaked out had plans to hit up the beach with some girls and went on a crash diet was only for a week but still did damage. Now I'm still cutting but slowly till summers over. I was dumbbell pressing 100s for 7 now I need to use the 85s seems a ridiculous strength loss so I don't think its permanent. Not sure how my other lifts have suffered yet.

    My goal: Muscle and fitness style physique, yeah yeah "wannabebig" whatever lol. Its still better than mens health! hehe.

    my problem: when I bulk my strength goes up but hypertrophy seems to have stagnented, most of my sets are performed in the 6-8 rep range. hopefully if I post more on my split someone can help me add some size. (though I guess it isn't urgent since I can't much do anything about it till summers over)

    You look pretty good to me. I'm 6'2" 195lbs and think i look thinner than you (and with less definition, higher bf%).

    Since you say that your growth has stopped, perhaps you need to change things up. Take two weeks off if you haven't had a break in a while or maybe do 15 rep sets for a week or two. If you post your split, i'm sure some of the other members will have plenty of advise for you. Be advised: if you don't have squats in there somewhere you're going to get the smackdown.

    You must have small legs, b/c your upper body looks pretty damn good to me!

    Yeah you look pretty good to me. (heavier than you say).

    Your upper body definitely looks good, what are your arms 14, 15?

    I can tell though, your legs are small aren't they

    I squat ATF god damnit! lol I weighed 164Ibs with more fat when I started at the same height. images of a POW should come ti mind haha.

    Ok heres what I've been doing.

    Day1: Legs
    Squats ATF: 185xtill failure (about 10-12 for the first set) for 3 or 4 sets unfortunenatly I mean failure I go till I'm stuck ATF and can't get up w/o a spot. (used to be-able to do 205x8 at least on the first set but I stopped doing ATF for a while and now the bottom part of my movement is weak as hell)

    was doing 225-245 for 8s at parrallel. Accutane is has my back all fucked up and the pressure gets to it. So I'm sticking to ATFs where the weight I can handle is lower.

    SLDL: 275x8 3 sets (havn't done since last week its still 2 days from now I'm sure its down now prolly to 6 GAH!)

    Then I either hit up externions & hamstring curls or ham curls and legpress. for 2-3 sets each.

    Then I hit calves.

    I'm usually shot after that.

    Day2: Chest/tris
    Dumbell press: keeping it in the 6-8 rep range 3-4 sets
    or
    barpress: getting rare I use the bar, only when I'm in the mood for getting ready to try a max for fun. Then I use the bar for a few weeks prior getting use to it again.

    Incline or decline press: if its decines its a bar if incline with dumbbells. 6-8 rep range 3 sets

    Tris: 3 sets french press or tri press

    Then I hit a couple set of cable flys and push downs

    Day3: back/bis (all 3 sets)

    weighted chins 6-8 rep range
    T-bar 6-8 rep range
    cablepull towards stomach 6-8
    bent over dumbell rows (only 1-2 sets)
    Then 3 sets of dumbbell curls

    Day4: Shoulders/traps/abs

    seated Dumbbell shoulder press 6-8 rep range 3-4 sets
    Or
    standing Military press 6-8 rep range 3-4 sets

    upright flys? god can't think of the name lateral raises? Description: standing up raises both arm out to side straight out. uses mad small weights because of torque/leverage disadvantage. 6-8 rep range quite a few sets pretty much untill I'm shot

    I think front delts get hit fine on chest day, and rear delts get hit fine on back day.

    Shrugs, either heavy barbell shrugs or dumbbell shrugs I prefer dumbbell but the dumbbells only go so high

    Some various rotator cuff excersizes

    day5: rest. or cardio

    day 6: rest or cardio or back to day one, depends on my goals cutting vs bulking and whether I feel recovered or not.

    Sometimes I do different things on the various days but those are pretty much the lifts listed that make up mainstay of my training regimen.

    I'm not going to survive taking a week off that would drive me insane. The gyms my refuge my stress relief my fun. Besides the no hypertrophy happening I don't have any of the other signs of over training.

    Any ideas how to change it up? some kicks ass lifts I might be missing out on for a particular bodypart?

    Man, you're working from a nice place to be. Very lean, but with a decent muscular base. You may not ever have the genetics to be huge, but it looks like those shoulders could really fill out. Another 15 pounds of muscle on you, and you'd look damn good. Yep, M&F good. How 'bout those legs?

    concentrate on your squats..use really good form and go to 90 degrees with heavy weight..and then you will see results.
