    Um...... actually I am not doing a ton of shoulder work. I am training on Westside, so I am hitting my front delts with a lot of bench presses, and things like that. I do DB laterals a lot, along with cable laterals. No overhead presses for me though.

    Appreciate the kind words Herc.

    I would of guessed you pounded your rear delts all the time with the way they are coming up in the pics.

    LOL, I havnt done any direct rear delt work in over a year now, I know that. Maybe even longer. My rear delts always take a beating with rows, though.

    I hope you don't take this the wrong way as I'm not trying to flame or anything, but I find it REALLY bizarre how you can be so strong and not look *that* big. Maybe it's the poor quality of the pics, maybe because you have added, like you say, some flab. I mean, some of your numbers are damn right awesome and I've seen really *built* guys (both size and shape wise) use less weight than you on some exercises. Of course, there are technique differences etc. so it's hard to compare. Again, not trying to rain on your parade, just wondering. You're getting stronger and progressing fast so whatever you're doing is working extremely well. Post some higher quality pics if you get a chance.

    For my biceps I do BB curls and hammer curls.

    Thanks for the support guys. WH Ill measure my legs tonight and get back to you on what they are.

    Slowmo, I am not sure. The pic are not the greatest quality, but that is me so I am obviously not all that much bigger. I train a lot for strength I think though, keep that in mind. More than a lot of bodybuilders do. A TRUE bodybuilder doesnt care about strength at all, only hypertrophy. So maybe thats why you have seen a lot of bigger guys not lift as much.

    I am more into the strength part of it as well, along with the size part of it. I dont know, to tell you the truth. I am natural too, so if you have seen a lot of guys 'roided up maybe that explains it some. I am not sure if steroids affect your strength.

    It's always hard to tell progress without the newest picture being tanned and shaven.

    Heh, lookin good.

    monstar... lookin prime as usual back, shoulders and arms look so good toghether it all ties in, but how come the chest won't grow?

    and you look plenty big in the pics, but in person if someone were to stand next to you at 225 and that lean, they'd understand that its pretty damn big

    Thanks a lot for the support guys, appreciate it.

    And about my chest kook, I have never had a problem with my chest growing. Its actually a very strongpoint in my physique. Unfortunately with the lighting, it doesnt come out good. And not only the lighting actually, for some reason my chest looks very large in a t-shirt or regular clothes, but not as large without a shirt. If that makes any sense.

    lol, only your second post and your questioning an established members credability. Read his journals, yes all of them view his deadlift pics, take a closer look at these progress pics and compare them with other board members, then come back and tell me he aint 223lbs.


    The only limits are the one's you place on yourself...
