    Pics of Me During Early Stage of Bulking

    Okay so it is May 24th 2005 and these are a few pictures of my present state.

    I hope to bulk up about 10-15 lbs and then cut to lower my bf % a bit. BTW I've only been bulking for about a week or so.

    I'll upload some more pics soon.

    Dude, you may want to resize those pics- they are ginormous!

    Why thank you, that's quite flattering but I'm trying to get bigger.


    Just kidding, I'll try to find a way to resize them. My browser (Internet Explorer 6) automatically resizes them but I'll see what I can do.

    OK here's a link to a photo album of the pictures. Some of the chest pictures are blurry but whatever.

    I know this was a little while back, but could you take a few more pics. It's kind of hard to actually tell what you look like because the camera is so close...do you know what I mean? But anyway, nice base, good potential to get huge.

    Updated Pics

    Okay, I've found out how to use the timer on my father's camera (actually it took me like 5 seconds to figure out). I'm a bit more pale than in my early Summer pics but oh well. I've only been on a bulk for about a month or so (before that I was just mainly maintaining weight, but my diet was a bit off) and have gained about 8lbs or so and am about 200lbs here. I think my lagging points are my chest and, strangely enough, my legs but we'll see as I keep bulking. I hope to get up to about 215lbs and then start to cut for Spring Break. Enjoy, comments and suggestions are welcomed.

    Edit: BTW I didn't like the idea of including my face but whatever, if I need to later I'll just delete/edit it.
    Edit #2: Yeah I edited it out.

    No offense, but you don't really look 200lbs to me. I'd say shoulders, traps, legs could use some work. You've got a great base, there just seems to be something missing. I think your chest could be really great with a little more mass. My chest is probably bigger, but it's shaped like crap. Could luck with bulking, I'm heading for the 210 realm as well.

    Edit: Just to be clear: I wasn't saying that you aren't 200lbs. I hate it when people do that.

    You've made some good progress, and you have a good solid base to work with.
    You don't look like you can bp 275 or squat 405 though, that's not to say you can't of course.

    Good progress man...
    I guess around WBB everyone wants to see video to validate your lifts.. I'm not asking, but that has been the comments on other threads where people question totals..

    Yeah if I got my hands on a video camera I'd be willing to show you guys. I definitely did a legit 275lbs on BP over the summer although I haven't tested my max since then I would assume it'd be near the same or more. I can definitely do quite a bit more than 315x5 on deadlifts in fact I do working sets with more than that now. I'll admit I question the squats since the person spotting wasn't checking that I was going deep enough. I was actually thinking of testing this week or next so I'll be updating my signature if I decide to do that.

    Edit: BTW I doubt 'everyone' on WBB is talking about my maxes.

    Sorry Fatrb38... I didn't mean EVERYONE was talking about YOUR maxes..
    I meant that everytime someone puts up numbers that other WBB posters don't believe.. they ask for video...

    I kinda meant sarcasticly.. I usually trust WBB folks... but I've only been on for a few months... I think some of the veteran WBBs have been "burnt" by fake posters... if you read some of the older posts (as in a couple of yrs ago) in Member pics, you will see a number of doubters that have come true.. and some where the video supports the poster.

    My personal belief is that you know what you can do.. and what you can't do..
    And it's up to each individual to monitor their own honesty..

    When I was a youngster, I lied a lot about what I could do.. it was bravado of HS football, wrestling, etc... until I got caught.. and then the embarassment was worst then the lying. So I learned by checking my ego at the door...

    And to this day.. I still remember going to college and getting beat by some girls playing basketball, volleyball & raquetball.. you can't be great in everything, but you can set your own goals and map out the plan. Ego only gets in the way..

    Sorry for the speech... I'll probably edit it out later.. but thought I would at least state it once.. get it off my chest.. Please realize it is not directed towards you.

    You have made great progress... keep on lifting, eating, sleeping..

    Youre back looks pretty solid and so are youre arms. Learn to do a proper lat spread and tri pose. Pecs are lacking but thatll fill out eventually and legs are looking aight.


    MERRY SOON TO BE CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY!

    LOL what's funny is that I always screw around trying to flex my lats but for some reason I find them really hard to flex (at least without flexing a bunch of other muscles). Thanks for the critique.

    is it me or do the people in those pictures look horrendous, ugly. Whilst I admire the hard work those people have put into their body the result is not in my honest opinion isnít aesthetically pleasing

    :withstupi I personally am more in the latter group. I want to get decently big and muscular but I don't want to be 'freakish' at all. Just another reason I haven't taken the time to learn proper poses.

    Much better than the previous set of pics. Definitely more readable. Overall I don't think your legs are really lagging, I think that the lighting isn't doing them any favors. Chest needs some work but I'm sure it will come up with time.

    Ya know I always thought that my legs were large for my build and while they might be, it seems like they're getting a larger portion of the bodyfat than I expected they would. I'm probably around 14-15% bodyfat so they should get more defined when I cut later. I think the whiteness and leg hair doesn't help though...
