    GIS Bulk Pics

    Most Muscular

    BTW, left is old, right is new with each pic.

    The old were taken December 12th, the new February 19th, so a little over two months

    Comments are appreciated!


    EDIT: I just realized that I put Feb 3rd and not Feb 19th. I have no idea where the 3rd came from, but oh well.

    Back

    I'm a little surprised my back didn't grow a little more. I think it's because I focused so much on deads and heavy BB rows.

    I'm going to start doing more chins and concentrate more on a good squeeze on rows rather than weight.

    Overall I'm very happy with my bulk so far. Went from 175 in November to 200 now.

    Still a lot of room for improvement, especially with my back.

    Cheers to Belial for responding to my PM's about approving them and to Ectx for the help with how to put two pics side by side!

    Most muscular shows the improvement the best. Excellent work!

    Okay... here are some leg shots.

    Keep in mind I basically had NEVER done legs until right after the first pic was taken (left). Why had I never done legs? Because I hurt my knee pretty bad when I first tried doing them several years ago and mentally I wasn't up to doing them in fear of hurting myself again.

    Soon after I too the left pic, I injured my lower back and wasn't able to again do squats for several weeks, so any progress is the result of only about a month.

    Most of my size gain has been in the glutes and inner thighs. Unfortunatly my quads havn't been growing like my upper legs, but they'll start to come.

    I've slowly been getting into squats as not to injur myself and have been making very quick progress. I'm going to start integrating more leg presses because they seem to work my quads the best.

    Laughing is okay.

    I took 1-AD for three weeks back in December, but that made me go from ~175 - ~184.

    Don't go out and buy it because I then went to 200 on lots and lots of food and strict training. I've never bulked correctly before so a lot of this is 'newbie' muscle gain and I'm sure things are going to get much more difficult now. I'm also rather gifted genetically (I used to think I was a hardgainer until I trained right), but most people don't realize just what it takes to bulk... I know I didin't. It takes a lot of food an smart training.

    In a lot of ways, bulking is really easy. Just eat a lot and don't overtrain. I say easy because a lot of people work out 5-6 days a week for 2 hours a day and don't eat enough. Just eat a lot and cut that training in half while progressing in weight and gains will come.

    Hey brother you are representing Washington well. Are you planning on attending the Emerald Cup at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue in April? Ronnie Coleman, Gunter Schlieeahlkhfdl and some other pros are going to be there. You should definitely check it out man. It will pump you up to compete like you will never believe. Keep it up!

    Nice improvement GIS. Just keep pounding away at your legs! Overall, I'd say the improvements with your upperbody especially are very noticeable.
    peace-

    Thans folks.

    Looking at the most muscular it doesn't even look like it should be me.

    Bennett- Yeah, I plan on focusing heavily on my legs in the next couple of months. I won't completely bash myself because they have grown a TON, mainly in my glutes adn upper thighs. In fact, you can see the chaffage that has occured on my left leg from groth, so now it's a matter of filling out.

    Holy **** mang, you look awesome. Your delts exploded. Keep up the great work!
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    I keep looking at your pictures. Is this much growth normal for 2 months time? I am really impressed man.

    I never trained my entire body before, so I pretty much consider myself a "beginner" and was hoping to see some of the beginner gains but its just not working out. I am going to keep at it, but I too have been eating heavy and training hard for 2 months and you can't even tell a difference.

    I am dedicated to this though, and I don't care if results come tomorrow, or in a couple years. Would really be nice to make those types of gains though.

    Anyway, enough of my rambling. You are kicking ass. Keep it up!
